Re: Using code hint help for fullScreenMode in Stack ??

You need to give a proper reference to any object. "This stack" is a full reference because LiveCode will identify the context. When you start out a reference by the object type, LiveCode will be expecting you to specify the object name (or id) as well, because otherwise how would it know which obje...

Re: Putting loop in different procedures of code

I really don't understand what it is that you are trying to do. I don't see anything in your pseudocode that suggests you need a loop that starts in one handler and ends in another. This is something you cannot do given the structures you suggest in your pseudocode. You can achieve the same effect w...

Re: Calling a function in LC Server

Back to one of your basic questions, LiveCode is typeless and intuitive in variable definition, so there is no "exists" you can test, the act of checking a variable name will create it, initialised to empty if $_POST["FirstName"] is not empty then put myFunction($_POST["FirstName"]) into tNewVar end...

Re: Failed to get content from the web in Windows 10

Do you have a proxy set up (fiddler?) at all?
Disable the proxy for testing and see if that explains the problem.

Re: Datagrid Corruption

How did you create the datagrid originally? If you copied or cloned it there could be an issue with the internal references - I have seen glitches wirh copied datagrids in the past. There was a scenario with a lesson, that advised for a datagrid to work in a standalone, you needed to include a "dumm...

Re: Can a function return two values?

Well, yes. But not successful in tracking it down. I am not even certain, but I think Richard was the author.

Re: Can a function return two values?

At a tangent, I was wondering where I could find an (old) article by (IIRC) Richard (Fourth World) concerning a technique to return a value from a function as well as specific value in "the result". I am at a loss to track it down.

Re: Connecting to remote MySQL Database via 3g 4g problem

This will have solved your immediate problem but it will introduce another problem in terms of security. Having wildcard access for any device in the world is a very "BAD THING". Much better to build an api to handle posted data for the server to deal with the database interactions. There is another...
