Re: Learn desktop business apps

SQL is no problem. I'm a SQL Server DBA by day... lol

I will be using sqlite and mysql for most of my LC stuff.

I will see what other resources I can find and go from there.

Thanks again everyone.

Re: Learn desktop business apps

Jan, I have only looked at the PowerPoint slides so far, but I think this will help be tremendously.
Thanks again,

Learn desktop business apps

I am new to LC. I learn best from examples, as complete examples as possible. Does anyone know of a completed business desktop application that does something like order entry, sales, inventory, etc, and one that I could get source code for so that I could learn from it? Learn the best practices, an...

Re: SMTP

It's definitely using port 26, but HostMonster isn't liking it. <<< 220-We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited, <<< 220 and/or bulk e-mail. When I've seen this error before it was because port 26 wasn't being used, but it must be something else right now. I think the pro...

Re: SMTP

Yes, I had downloaded Chipp's stack but it wouldn't send the email for me. I was hoping for some more documentation on Shao's stuff so I could see if it was just a different option that I needed to use. I had checked Authentication on Chipp's stack. I need to use Port 26 and Chipp's example doesn't ...

Re: SMTP

Shao's stuff seems to have gone away.

I need stmp authentication so I don't think I can use Sarah's Library.

Is there a better way, or is Shao's and Sarah's the best way to send smtp mail?

Re: Open Stack, LC exits

Now that I understand how it works, I think it will be fine.

I did also have to stop hiding the stack when I was in development also..

It's kind of crazy, but I can deal with it.

Re: Open Stack, LC exits

Klaus
I understand what you are saying, but most programming languages when you actually open the program to make changes, it doesn't actually run the program....

LC is new to me, but I will understand it's nuances eventually. Thanks for your help.

Re: Open Stack, LC exits

But the first method you suggested, worked.

Is there a more proper way to have a quit in the stack but not have it cause a problem?

Re: Open Stack, LC exits

I tried the Suspend Development Tools because I thought I saw that on another post, however once I do that, LC is gone except for the message box that says "restore development tools", so I can't actually open the stack????

Open Stack, LC exits

I am trying to open my stack. I hve clicked on Edit mode first to make sure I'm in edit mode.

I open the stack, then LC closes.

I do have a quit in my "on openstack" at the end, but I'm not sure if somehow that's causing the issue.

Re: How to properly exit program

I ended up using the code from Klaus, running my stuff at "on openstack" and then quitting. It's a simple program, I made sure I closed the database, etc, first.
Thanks again everyone.
