Re: Can't install livecode server on xampp

Re: combine a field from a sub stack

Klaus, Obviously, i like to over complicate things, plus I left out some vital information. First of all, this should probably be in a database. I'm just trying to avoid doing that or just map it out beforehand. Field "noteText" is a question and answer form that will eventually come from a website ...

combine a field from a sub stack

It's been a many, many months since I've worked with livecode due to work etc. So i'm back to beginner status and i can't believe i have to ask this question. Anyway, I'm trying to combine 2 fields with this save command. it's a knockoff of the notes app ( 8.0 +) where the highlited line of the note...

Anybody else running in to problems?

Hello, I'm going through the new lessons and there still seems to be problems. Simple Messages was ok. There were problems with the calculator, the decimal point for one. But i have to go back through it for the umpteenth time to make sure it wasn't me. It did work using the live code finished stack...

So, in case anyone wants to know the answer. global gStarts, local aTime on mouseDown put the time into sTime convert sTime to seconds put sTime - gStarts ...

Re: probably another simple answer

Craig Thanks for the response, but i've been busy at work and still trying to figure this out on my own. Yes, gStart is a global variable. The time(converted to seconds) is placed in the variable gStart on openCard. What i've already posted works fine. it just keeps subtracting from gStart. i need i...

probably another simple answer

Hello, This is basically a timer, which i didn't know Livecode had "built in" ones until well into my project. Regardless, gStart comes from the openCard script. This code is in a button called "time2". The problem is that each time "button time2" is pushed the time is subtracted from the gStart. Th...

Re: script local variable

Klaus & Richard I've been in a hurry to get this app finished and i've been rushing to fix things without thinking. i guess i started associating "script local" with cards. There's my card and my buttons are handlers on that card and those buttons that are affecting the field on that one card, so it...

script local variable

i thought i understood script locals, but maybe not. I have a field with 3 buttons on one card. i'm trying to make a list( local) from a master list(global). the problems is with the "choose button", it doesn't populate the "test field". it works fine if i use a global variable instead of script loc...

Re: dateItems

Klaus,

Thanks for checking! i tried it in a new stack and it worked fine. There must be something in this stack which i've been working for a loooong time that's conflicting with the message.

dateItems

this used to work in 7.1.2, adding a day to the date. Now using 8.0.1(rc 1) has the syntax changed?

Code: Select all

 convert the long date to dateItems
   add 2 to item 3 of it
convert it to abbr date
answer it
Thanks,
larry

Re: still trouble with standalone

Thanks all of you. That worked for the IDE but does not work on my phone. It's not copying the file into the bundle. i don't if it's the script or what. i've tried a lot of different variations with the script. One thing i notice though when I add the stack file, it shows just one in the bottom righ...
