Enter multiline text into a text box via script

Hello, I am attempting to script the placement of multiline text into a field when a user presses a button. It's probably my syntax knowledge that is letting me down (and my google-fu). The scenario is when a user presses a button This is copied into a field Line one of the text Line two of the text...

Re: Buttons don't disappear

All, Thank you for your help and replies. Based on a chat with Klaus, and the other replies, I decided to take a look at my installation. It appears as though an old installation, possibly 6.x or 7.0 (RC2) was having an influence on my install. Removing all older versions of LiveCode resulted in the...

Re: Buttons don't disappear

@Klaus - The results were the same as encountered earlier. The "Visible" box is being unchecked, but the button does not disappear.

Re: Buttons don't disappear

@magice - I wouldn't know how to print to an actual printer.

If someone else more experienced reads this and wants to take a crack at it, that would be very useful.

I then did a separate test by starting a new stack, adding a button and attaching the following script to the button: on mouseUp set the visible of button "Button" to false end mouse...

Re: Printing part of a card to PDF

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately the suggested code resulted in a blank page being printed to PDF. I tried a couple of variations including

Code: Select all

print card "invoice" of this stack from 0,0 to 575,600 into 0,0,575,800
Nothing has worked so far.

Any other suggestions?
