Re: Field Validation

Sounds like password strength, yes? If so, your life as a developer and your users' lives are all easier these days, as best practices for password strength favor length and eschew complexity: https://www.passwordping.com/surprising-new-password-guidelines-nist/ If it's for a different problem it wo...

Interesting enough, according to gmail, this address couldn't be found,
or is unable to receive mail: tech@pangeawerks.com
Maybe something with gmail, or with the recipient server. Ping responds from that domain with 0 packet loss.

I don't think anythings 'missing' per se, I think he is saying that the working screenRect and effective working screenRect are reporting the same dimensions.
Unless you're using multiple monitors that should be what we expect, no?

Re: Icon in Taskbar

That should happen automatically as it does for all apps, provided you have at least one toplevel stack open. How many windows does your app have, and what are their modes?

Re: Best way to validate SSN

The safest thing to do with information as critical as SSN is to never require it. I'm sure you've exhausted all alternatives before committing to something that will make your system a target, but this is important enough to include in this discussion for the benefit of future readers.

Re: Threads for beginners

Re: A compile problem

Thanks, Panos.

1. Why would not looking messages prevent the SB from succeeding without notice?

2. Is there any internal discussion of moving the SB to a separate process to make all these complications go away?

Re: how to connect to MsSQL server database

Unless this is strictly for LAN use, you'll want to use something like PHP, Python, or LiveCode on the server to create an HTTPS API, rather than expose the DB directly to the open Internet.

Re: A compile problem

Ah, thanks. Script compilation errors provide more detail. This build issue just seems like a bug.

What's the target platform?

Re: A compile problem

I'm on a phone right now, but can you tell us what the error is? Normally the compilation error dialog will take you right to it.
