LiveCoders - I have Live Code 8.1.4 but everytime I open a stack I get the dialog box telling me that I need to upgrade to 8.1.3?! Huh?!

Re: "Find" - in a field problems

...a related question

I've heard that searching/retrieving data from a variable is faster than from a field
so I'd simply put fld "ImageData" into a var named ImageData

Re: FIND Question

Thanks Klaus and Thierry, Thierry's suggestion to include a comma in the string was beautifully simple! This worked; find string comma & image2Display in fld "ImageData" --FIND; string, whole, words put the value of the foundLine into tData --- extract items as needed I did not realize it was possib...

Re: FIND Question

Thanks Craig, The "array" is simply lines of comma-delimited text sitting in a locked and hidden field. Here are three lines from it...

Problem is - some have similar names... for example there are four different lines of data each for; 30Pel.jpg 130Pel.jpg 230Pel.jpg 330Pel.jpg 130Pel...
