Re: sqlite update execution error if multiple records exist

The dictionary entry for revexecuteSQL says: The revExecuteSQL command places a return value into the result, to indicate the outcome of the query. For successful queries, the revExecuteSQ...

Re: Old tips = new tricks

Hi,

works here so far w/o a problem.
just noticed that the entries in the tip menu are longer than the width of the button. see 1 in screenshot

As current LC versions do not support old Mac OS anymore, maybe the reference could be removed. see 2 in screenshot

Re: Requesting feedback on new docs for dbLib

Hi Andre, first of all are you aware that http://fon.nu, which is shown in your signature, shows an account suspended error when visited. I´ve purchased a commercial library long time ago but did not use it yet. Not because of the library, but because of lack of time to dive into it. The docs looks ...

Re: Returning a value from an SQL query

You have to use the function revDatafromQuery for this.

revExecuteSQL is used for example for inserting, updating, deleting a record.

Re: Retrieving text with accents

You could try to use textdecode() function to convert the complete response.

It tried just with only S√£o Paulo.

Put textdecode("S√£o Paulo","UTF-8") returns the correct spelling.

Re: MS-SQL Server ODBC Connection

Matthiasr, Thanks for the snippets. The driver names are not matching I recognize, should they be changed to my driver name, or is LiveCode providing drivers based on those driver names? No, you have to use the exact driver name. Currently it´s not possible to use ODBC connection strings under Mac ...

Re: MS-SQL Server ODBC Connection

I don't want to have the credentials in my software, that's the job of the local admin
That´s why my software has a preferences stack, where the user can add credentials e.g for ODBC, SMTP, SFTP or other services. :wink:
