Re: Is there a "where used" function in the Debugger?

Yes! The "Find"! Thanks for the answer! But... "be careful what you ask for..." Unfortunately, for my specific problem, there are 52 occurences!!! Some of which evidently come from deeply inside the DataGrid internals! I'm not going to learn how to use the DataGrid by using this approach. :? Please ...

Is there a "where used" function in the Debugger?

Hi all. Is there a function that would allow one to discover all the places (in a stack) where a handler is called? (Context: I'm trying to get my head around the DataGrid before making a final decision on using LC to replace some dying apps on my iPhone and FileMaker Pro on my iMac. In one of the l...

Project Browser documentation?

Hi all. Going through the lastest version of the LC User Guide (9.0.0 User Guide 4/6/18). Page 483 (listing the various menu items) states "For more details, see the section on the Project Browser." Where is the section on the Project Browser??? Couldn't find that in this manual... (The Dictionary/G...

How to add an empty line to a datagrid

Hi all. The LC lessons (about DataGrid "DG") seem to assume that you want to populate a DG with data that you already have either via the Contents property or via a handler (that sets the dgData with data you already have). But I want to be able to input data directly into the datagrid, as a user, w...

Re: Tab Panel with visual effect - inconsistent?

Please get used to the VISUAL EFFECT syntax I wrote above!
Thank you Klaus. I will, I will.
The dictionary is out of date
This is distressing! If, as a newbie, I cannot rely on the Dictionary, what should I use as a reference?

Re: Tab Panel with visual effect - inconsistent?

Hi Dunbarx and Klaus. Thanks for your replies. Like Klaus said, in another thread, there are many ways to skin a cat! My script is much less elegant, but here it is: (BTW I had not really named the tabs and the fields as I stated in my original post, for clarity's sake :? ) on menuPick pItemName swi...

Tab Panel with visual effect - inconsistent?

Hi all. I created a Tab Panel with five tabs: "Tab 1", "Tab 2",..., "Tab 5". I also created five fields, with the same names. I added a script to the tab panel to show the field with the same name as the tab and to hide the other four fields. Works fine. Then, I wanted to "experiment" with visual ef...

Re: Swiping with native scroller?

Sorry for interrupting... I was reading this post; this led me, somehow, to doing a search of the Dictionary with the argument "scroller". This led me to "iosScroller". I don't really understand what it's talking about (although it does sound interesting). At the bottom of the entry, there is this: ...

Re: How can I tell if I'm on the first card (of this bg or of this stack)?

Ah... the properties!

Thank you for pointing me in that direction!

And I see that I won't have to ask my followup question: how can I tell if I'm on the LAST card:

the number of the last cd of this stack

Danke, danke!

Re: How can I tell if I'm on the first card (of this bg or of this stack)?

Hallo Klaus.

Not really... what I want to be able to do is something like:

if this card is the first card of this stack then...

I've been trying all kinds of combinations in the msg box, but none of them works (errors like "chunk source is not a container, etc.)

Regards.

IOS Deployment -- Lots of questions!

Hi all. I’m going to write a few apps for deployment on my iPhone (iPhone X). Most likely never to the Apple App store. Just for personal use. I’m using an iMac, OS X 10.12.6, LC 9.0.0 Community. For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been going through the user manual. All of it. Also lurking and readi...
