Re: DG Field Editor to not close on return

The script of btn "field editor" of stack "revDataGridLibrary" appears to be empty. Is this correct?

DG Field Editor to not close on return

Hi, quick question, if I want the field editor of my datagrid form to accept the return key instead of closing, what should I do?

Thanks!

Re: Datagrid: Problems with dgdata? [solved]

Thank you for looking at my stack, Klaus :)

For those who are curious, the problem was that the array I was using for dgdata had text, not numbers, for its keys, and I didn't know that datagrids can't work with text keys. But now I know! I don't think I would have figured that out by myself.

Re: Datagrid: Problems with dgdata?

To isolate the problem I use simple test buttons as well as the message box, but yeah, normally I would call a sort from the card script or possibly another object on the card. As another example, if I use the message box to execute this: dispatch "RefreshList"to group "indicators" then my datagrid ...

Re: Datagrid: Problems with dgdata?

What platform are you experiencing the delay? In a standalone? In the IDE, too? What version of LC are you using LC 9.0. Windows 10. The problems occur in both the IDE and Windows Standalone. "singular" is not better, but simply correct. Noted. I'll use it from now on. Yes, I can now call an index ...

Re: Datagrid: Problems with dgdata?

Thanks for your comments, Klaus. I don't think you touched on the main issue yet. Any idea what could cause the behavior I listed in my original post? I think the problem with calling data from the index is due to some deeper problem, the same thing that's causing a ridiculous 30-second period of un...

Datagrid: Problems with dgdata? [solved]

Hi everybody. I've used datagrids dozens of times (rarely is it easy). I've had scrolling problems before but they often "just went away" after closing LC and opening it back up later. I've created a new datagrid that is behaving very strangely. It's a datagrid form with just two fields plus the bac...

Re: Array not finding key

Thanks for the response, Klaus.

After some more head-scratching, there is apparently some invisible non-space character at the end of my key name IN the array.

They sure are sneaky. Perhaps it's because I ctrl-C-ed the data from an Open Office table...

Array not finding key

Hello all, I've scratched my head for a week on this. Any ideas on what might be going wrong or how I can test it? Livecode 9.0, Windows 10. I'm using a multidimensional array tArray and I'm having problems with a single element. Basically I'm trying to create tab delimited data out of certain value...

Re: text properties buggy [LC 9.0]

Maybe you have accidentally set the fontStyle of the stack (or card) to italic. So any new object that you drop from the Tools palette will inherit this fontStyle. Nope, I've never set those properties, and they are currently empty. Setting the textstyle, textfont, etc. of the stack appears to solv...

text properties buggy [LC 9.0]

Hi guys, Using 9.0 (always risky, I know) and as others have already discussed, fonts were changed. I'm using Windows 10. In my app (started back pre-9.0) default objects from the Tools Palette have italic fontstyle. In fact, the problem is larger, going into the Property Inspector, I can't turn off...

Re: Print to PDF: Right side of text is truncated

Did you set up the printing parameters? It looks like you need to at least set the printmargins. That wouldn't work for my situation because I'm using revPrintText, not revPrintField. Anyway, I think I figured out the cause of the truncating, which seems to be avoided if I set the textsize of the f...

Wow, that is unpleasant to even look at.
