Re: Search and Scrolling List field

Hi, put clickLine of field "choiceField" into z It's a function - "the clickline" or "clickline()". It should result in something like "line 4 of field 5" ... put item 1 of z into y Since you haven't defined another Itemdelimiter, it's comma, and you'll get "line 4 of field 5" in y. put word 2 of z ...

Re: What's wrong with "it" ??

Hi,

shell commands often return "terminal-formatted text", with spaces and CRs - so I always test if something is somewhere in the result:

Code: Select all

if "No" is in tvState then
Have fun!

Re: MS-SQL Server ODBC Connection

Hi, The advantage of using ODBC connection strings instead of DSN is, that the user does not have to create the DSN to get the software working. That may be seen as a disadvantage, too ;-) I don't want to have the credentials in my software, that's the job of the local admin IMHO. It's he that deter...

Re: MS-SQL Server ODBC Connection

Hi, I never used ODBC the way you mention - there's a much more comfortable way (at least when using Win). Look at Max' wiki regarding MS Access . That's the method using a prefab DSN and simply calling it by name: get RevOpenDatabase("odbc", "DSNName",,,) (All data needed are in the DSN, so you hav...

Re: Deployment to Kindle Fire 7”

Hi, This is using the latest version of LiveCode [...] Read in the comments to the bug report that Panos linked: Apps built with LiveCode Indy 8.x.x installed and run just fine, but with LC 9.x.x onward, the apps upon launch just show a black screen and the OS throws an error notification.

Re: Unexpected behaviour

Hi, I don't know what Cron or Taskplanner is. Also, This server, as I call it, might be on a big commercial thing over which I will have no control/understanding. These are core mechanisms that every OS has in one form or another - starting repetitive tasks is base functionality of each OS. If you c...

Re: Unexpected behaviour

Hi, I can't see how the server can be triggered when files appear, unless in a loop. 2 possibilities: Have your program started by the OS via cron, taskplaner etc. in suitable intervals, do the job once and then terminate itself. Or: Have something as such in your stack script: constant kTime = 120 ...

Re: Is indirect addressing possible?

Hi, Can I put the text Fld1 into a variable and use that as the Field name? It doesn't seem to work put "Fld1" into temp put fld temp into fld "target" This works here (LC 6.7.10): put "myFldName" into myVar put "Hussah!" into fld (myVar) put fld (myVar) This works, too: repeat with i = 1 to 4 set t...

Re: Exporting standalone

Hi, You realise you can only build iOS apps on a Mac? Really? Oh oh. Found something other here : "Identifier" in "Standalone settings/ Android" is picky in what it accepts - "com.itis-me.myapp" results in this error, "com.itisme.myapp" works ... And if we're here anyways, make sure "Version Code" i...

Re: Exporting standalone

Hi,

Isn't it required to have Android 2.1 and/or 2.2 (API 7/ 8) installed? Not sure about it - yet I have, and it works.

Have fun!

Re: Exporting standalone

Hi,

confirming that 9.0.1 /Win 10-64 does compile for Android (haven't tested the resulting apk though).

Using the SDK Manager 24.4.1 (SDK path: D:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk) and 64bit Java 1.8_144 (JDK Path: D:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_144) here.

Hope this helps, have fun!

Re: Valid locations saving pref files

Hi, "ProgramData" is one of the "mapped folders" in newer Windows systems. They can be tricky to work with. Using another approach I accidentally came to a way to write there: set itemdel to slash put specialFolderPath(40) into myPath -- the User Folder put last item of myPath into myName -- save fo...
