Re: Fastest method of comparing two lists.

Thanks - l’ll give it a go when I get a chance to sit and have some thinking time. Spring has sprung here in Canada, so that means everyone races out to enjoy the few weeks we have of summer.

Appreciate it,

Kelly

Re: Fastest method of comparing two lists.

Hi Simon

Having multiple drives of archived content myself, I would be very interested in trying your solution on my problem. Could I get a copy of your stack for testing?

Thanks

Re: Printing a Browser Widget

Thanks!

The global additions should help.

Could you add a couple more lines to put the snapshot into an image “theImage” that I already have on the card to cover the browser widget. With the ‘wallpaper’ image covering the browser, I’m hoping I can then print the card.

Thanks

Re: Printing a Browser Widget

Could someone give me a code fragment on how you are doing the snapshot? I tried that but the rectangle seemed to have an issue between global and window coordinates. The other issue was that the snapshot seemed to be random static - tearing of the image so that columns & rows don’t line up. Thanks ...

Printing a Browser Widget

Mac on Mojave, LC Community 8.2.0 and 9.0.3 I have a browser widget alone on a card which displays a simple HTML text table. I clone this card 25 times while randomizing the text in the tables - all so far so good. When I go to print the 25 randomized cards, they all appear blank when I look at them...

Re: Video Tutorial

Some of the individual lessons have video attached, though not all. It still seems to be the place for a new comer to get a coherent series of lessons that will build their knowledge of what the tool can do and how to go about it.

Re: Getting files into a Option menu

Since the list of files is just a list of lines of text, you can loop through them and trim the ends off each line in tFiles - before you put that text into your button menu. You can look up working with chunk data if you don't know how to do that - http://lessons.runrev.com/s/lessons/m/4603/l/44092...

Re: Property Inspector "Visible"

You can also control the visibility from the "Application Browser" window, where the button is listed whether it is visible or not.

http://runrev.com/developers/lessons-and-tutorials/tutorials/ links to a long list of task specific tutorials. The Lessons section has more material and some of the lessons link to video as well (see the Sheep Herder build video). If you work through all of those, you have a pretty good understandin...

Re: Set The Menu Items of an Option Menu (script)

I've read Richard Gaskin's discussion of benchmarking, so I COULD set up a function that ran both lines 10,000 or 100,000 times and compared the milliseconds, but I'm not THAT interested since my option lists (and anything with variables in memory) are virtually instantaneous in LC by my standards -...

Re: Set The Menu Items of an Option Menu (script)

OK Craig - you have another newbie thinking. What are the tradeoffs between the two? Why would you want to use one or the other given that they have the same result? Does it take longer to fetch the property explicitly or is the engine doing it for you anyway in the short form?

Thanks

Re: Help with placing iterated function results into a list

tList is not a function, so you will not find it in the dictionary. tList is just a variable that Craig is using to capture the factors. t prefix on a variable name is just common livecode naming shorthand to remind the programmer that it is a temporary variable that is local to the function and wil...
