Re: Incorrect "Column does not exist" error from dataGrid

After much pulling of hair, I finally figured it out.
There was a mysterious numbered group in the card and it contained another group named "vendorsGrid".
I have no idea where either of them came from.
I had to delete it using the message box. The Project Browser wouldn't.

Strange.

Incorrect "Column does not exist" error from dataGrid

I added a new dataGrid to a card, named it, and added my columns to it. When I try to set the alignment of the headers with set the dgHeaderAlignment["id"] of group "vendorsGrid" of card "lists" to "left" LC reports the following error: Message execution error: Error description: Object: object does...

tsNet Sample Stack fails

I want to look into the new tsNet functionality. I downloaded the tsNet sample stack linked to from the 8.1 announcement page. When I click the HTTP GET Example button it fails at line 18 in the mouseUp handler for that button with: "button "HTTP GET Example": execution error at line 18 (Handler: ca...

Re: Why LiveCode can't remember the state of its windows?

Mag, Don't know if you're still looking for a solution for this, but this is working for me: on preOpenStack local filePath # # Special initialization for development mode. # if toLower( char 1 to 3 of environment()) is "dev" then modeless stack "revIDEProjectBrowser" modeless stack "Message Box" en...

Re: No such object error when object does exist

Klaus, Actually, I had to add them because the menu handling code that results in this card being opened is in another card's script. Leaving them out resulted in "no such object" errors. Since you said I didn't really need them, the next question was "Well then, why do I need them?" Backtracking al...

No such object error when object does exist

Okay. I have an openCard handler that references a data grid successfully on one line and then fails a few lines later with: card "cvList": execution error at line 63 (Chunk: no such object), char 7 on openCard local tmp logDebug( "me: " & name of me ) logDebug( the dgData of group "cvGrid" of me ) ...

Emacs key bindings

According to the documentation, setting the emacsKeyBindings to true enables a subset of the Emacs key bindings. I would really love to use this feature. I've been using Emacs since the late eighties and have configured all of my other IDEs to behave the same way. Not having the basics (^a, ^e, ^p, ...

Detect window move

Okay. This must be really simple and just haven't done the correct search.

How do I detect that a window/stack has been/is moving?

TIA

Re: Return going to message box, not caller

Bernd,

Doh. Of course. Variable name overload. Oops! :oops:
Thanks very much for pointing that out.

I'm still getting used to all of the LiveCode reserved words (and I have a tendency to use their long forms in my source). :D

Return going to message box, not caller

Okay. Color me confused. I have a function that is displaying its return value in the message box instead of returning it to the caller. Calling code: # # Adds the specified text and a return to the log field. # command log msg local lineCount local lineHeight local timestamp local newLine = "<br>" ...

Re: Stack doesn't come to front upon first go to card

Hmm. I would hope not since it's a double-click handler.
It shouldn't fire until after the second mouse up.

Besides, as I said in the original post, this only happens if the target stack isn't already visible.

Stack doesn't come to front upon first go to card

Hello. I have two substacks. One contains a datagrid with a list of customers. The other contains the fields required to edit a customer. The datagrid has a custom column behavior with a mouseDoubleUp handler for selecting a row. The last thing in that handler is go to card "addEdit" of stack "custo...
