Auto Calculate Text Fields?

Hi all,

Suppose I have 3 text fields. I put a number into fields 1 and 2. Without clicking anything, the sum of fields 1 and 2 automatically appear in field 3.

How does one achieve this?

Thanks,
Jon :)

Re: Image as Tooltip?

Hi all,

A mouseEnter and mouseLeave hander for each object did the trick!

Thank you to everyone who responded!

Re: Image as Tooltip?

Hi Paul,

That's exactly what I did. I have a sub stack with multiple cards. Each card contains an image. Back on the main stack, each object contains mouseEnter and mouseLeave handlers with the mouseEnter handler pointing to a particular card of the sub stack.

Thanks so much,
Jon

Image as Tooltip?

Hi all, When I hover my house over an object (I am guessing the object would have a 'mouseWithin' handler), I would like for a small image to appear...sort of like a tooltip. There are approximately 20 different objects on one card each needing a separate image 'tooltip'. Suggestions/code examples o...

Re: What is tsNet-x86.dll ?

Ok, now for another question. Currently, my app and the 'externals' folder sits on the desktop. Is it considered best practice to put the app and 'externals' folder into a parent folder?

Apologies for what may be a dumb question but I am still getting acquainted with how LC works.

Thanks,
Jon

Re: What is tsNet-x86.dll ?

Ah ha! I added a "Check For Update" function which would involve downloading the update (if available) from my web server.

Thank you so much!

What is tsNet-x86.dll ?

Hi all, I've been working on an app that has been compiled several times for Windows but today is the first time that an "Externals" folder appeared along side the compiled app and within was a "tsNet-x86.dll". What is this DLL? I assume I must have added some code to my project that needs this dll ...

Re: Download file to desktop...

Nevermind. I just added the following to each sub stack:

on preOpenStack
exit preOpenStack
end preOpenStack

That seems to have done the trick!

Thanks,
Jon

Re: Download file to desktop...

Me again,

Now for the next hurdle. Because the aforementioned download code is part of a preOpenStack handler, when I open a sub stack within in the project, the preOpenStack code executes which I don't want. How do I avoid this when opening a sub stack?

Thanks,
Jon

Download file to desktop...

Hi all, I want my (cross platform) app to be able to download a file from my website. I want the file to download to the DESKTOP regardless of whether the user is on a Mac or Windows PC. The file to download is on my web server and I've tested the URL and the file downloads fine. I just can't seem t...

Re: Printing Weirdness...

Hi Jacque,

I think the printScale suggestion did the trick!

Re: Printing Weirdness...

I've tried setting the margins from zero to 18. Margins get adjusted but I still get a blank page the first time I print. No blank page on all subsequent prints.

I'll live with it.

Best regards,
Jon

Re: Printing Weirdness...

Hi Craig,

Thank you for the reply. "select empty" seems to have solved the first issue.

Commenting the two lines of code seems to have done the trick BUT the printed card gets shifted to the right and down thus cutting it off (I am assuming it's a margin thing).

Best regards,
Jon
