Re: Identifying Current Stack

As always Klaus! Works like a charm. :D The Dictionary does say "Long name", but us dummies don't know we need to ask for the short name! And one of the examples simply reads "the topStack" which doesn't help much... and it actually needs 'the' at the start of it too... Us dummies need it spelled ou...

Identifying Current Stack (Solved)

I feel so stupid asking this, but the documentation is a little light and I can't seem to get the right words... I have an app with multiple stacks. I have a script that appears in an object that gets cloned to all stacks. In that script, I want certain sections to work only on certain stacks, and n...

Re: help with filter command

do you want to filter lines that have "abc"? What you have is a tab delimited string, so effectively, the tab doesn't exist (to what is reading the list). That being, what is being looked for is "abc", not "[tab] abc [tab]". The tab is not part of the data, it's just a separator. Try filtering by "a...

Re: Can you set custom properties by referenced value?

I'm not sure if I get exactly what you want (honestly, I am not familiar with graph widgets), but, if you are trying to find code to track whether the data has changed, you might consider trying something like this: Assign a variable to hold the current line data that you are checking (tCheck- this ...

Re: Encapsulated Image in external File

Thanks Jacque and -hh, I have played with quite a few images now, and it seems that the two I first used seem to be the only ones that are having issues. They seem to be the exception rather than the rule. For what I need, I think I can accept that those couple of images just won't work, but the bul...

Re: Encapsulated Image in external File

I am using Windows 10 and Livecode Community 9.0.4. I haven't changed the paintcompression. I don't want the image referenced (I can get it to work with referenced images), because it's easy to lose data if the referenced image file is moved or deleted... I hope that helps with context... I am using...

Re: Encapsulated Image in external File

Using "The text of the image" yields no data in the file, with or without base64Encode. Using "the imagedata of the image" and Base64Encode of colour image yields no data written into the file. In a B&W image, the file has data. Consequently, B&W works, Colour doesn't. I tried a couple of different ...

Re: Encapsulated Image in external File

Thanks -hh and jacque. I will give the base64encode a go when I next get on to it. I have tried "the text of img "Imagename" but that didn't save anything into the file. Only the imagedata yielded something into the file. I'll see how it goes. As for the binary file... I don't think I am saving as a...

Encapsulated Image in external File

Hi all! Long time no post. I have been chugging through an app idea for painters that allows: - An image to be loaded - A grid to be laid on the image (3x3 etc. or vertical only, or horizontal only, or angled) - Grid colour and transparency changes - Copying the image and greyscaling it - Showing on...

Re: Data Grid Form Sort Column

Damn! You beat me to the punch!!! I essentially did the same thing, just in a less elegant way... if the hilited of button "BPMNo" of card "OneVideo" then put "6,17,19,20,29,30" into tAList set the itemdelimiter to comma repeat for each item x in TAList put the dgDataOfLine[x] of group "DataGrid 1" ...

Data Grid Form Sort Column

Hey all, I have set up a DataGrid with a "Form" type. (See picture) It has a Row Template set up with a checkbox, Label and Field "Rating". I used the "Working with checkboxes" tutorial to set it up, then hacked another part to it. I have set up code that works to add a number into the rating if it ...

Re: frame-byframe with Video Formats

Hey Bernd...
It does actually do stuff, so as Bogs says... it's a start! It just needs refinement (hacking and slashing) to get it to where it needs to be!
We're getting there... even if it is taking the entire power of the greatest Livecode Forum minds to get it done.
