Re: how to get all selected items of datagrid

Once again, Klaus to the rescue. Although my data source was much different from this example I was able to get it to work by making logical assumptions to restructure the code. Thanks so much!

Re: What's wrong with "it" ??

Hi, shell commands often return "terminal-formatted text", with spaces and CRs - so I always test if something is somewhere in the result: if "No" is in tvState then Have fun! Thanks! There are so many ways to accomplish the silly task that I totally missed. I'm happy you folks are here to set me s...

Re: What's wrong with "it" ??

Thanks everyone for chiming in. I'll take things in order: First, Dunbarx: Sounds like you are a bit farther along than "complete beginner". :wink: I drifted away from coding when .NET came along. I was too damn old to jump into that pool with all those youngsters. Visual Basic kept me fairly busy f...

What's wrong with "it" ??

I'm not a complete beginner, but this seems like such a simple issue that I thought this forum would be best. I have code that works and has been running on the Windows platform for a couple of years. I'm finally doing a MAC version and for some reason the same code will not run. My business is in r...

Re: Validating database operation causes crash

I have an update that is also quite interesting. Since the last post I had commented out all the validation code and moved on to other things. But then I realized I could test this another way... by changing the visible confirmation. So instead of the 'answer' I put in code to change the background ...

Re: Validating database operation causes crash

Hi, you already tried to delete your LC preferences file? This sounds like voodoo, but actually every LC version I ever tried has managed to corrupt this one once at least, with quite entertaining results partially. Have fun! It's only crashing in the standalone. But thanks for the tip. I'll rememb...

Re: Validating database operation causes crash

I'm using: Windows 7, LC Community 9 build 15010, MySQL In the standalone, do you have a function that does a simple "select" on the DB ? Other question : do you have another PC on which to test your standalone ? Last but not least : does your stack contains something else (datagrids etc.), other c...

Re: Validating database operation causes crash

Hi, This is one of the weirdest things I've ever seen. I agree. This is really weird. You tried in the debugger? Which line crashes actually? The "if the result ..."? Testing "the result" really shouldn't crash ;-)) So set breakpoint at the line where you construct your tvSQL and watch what happens...

Re: Validating database operation causes crash

Thanks so much for the input. I'm using: Windows 7, LC Community 9 build 15010, MySQL I remember adding the semicolon to all the queries in my project thinking I was "cleaning up" the code. I thought it had to be there. Unfortunately that didn't do it. Now, however, it runs perfectly in the IDE but ...

Validating database operation causes crash

I searched for a similar problem and didn't find it. This is one of the weirdest things I've ever seen. Whenever I try to validate a Db operation the whole thing crashes. As a compiled exe it crashes every time; as code in the IDE it crashes only sometimes (by that I mean some of them validate every...
