Don't forget that Rev will levy a charge
of $50 to change their records to show
the new licence owner.

Difference between visible and hide

So a very subtle difference!

Thanks SparkOut.

Difference between visible and hide

Are the "set visible of" and "hide/show" functions
identical or are there situations where one is preferable
to the other?

Lock Messages

Mark

As "lock messages" doesn't get many mentions
I was wondering if there are any traps for the
inexperienced - situations when "lock messages"
will cause problems.

Thanks for your interest.

Second Try at Graphs

My attempts to create graphs didn't get me anywhere until I got hold of the plotter_test1.rev from Klaus. So thanks Klaus and here's a pic of what I was able to achieve using your stack as a model. The values are prog-generate and put into an array. The required values are then put into point lists ...

Lock Messages

I was looking for a way to prevent a user clicking on a key while the prog was making 400 clones of a small image and found "lock messages". Worked like magic but what amazed me was the speed increase - so much in fact that I had to put a "wait 5" in the loop to get it to run slowly enough. Not sure...

Trying to understand the Rev file system

Thanks for the sympathetic reply malte. Reminds me of the days when one of the most popular operating systems was called C/PM. The problems arose becaust the C/PM OS as supplied to computer manufacturers didn't specify a file format. The result was that every computer maker "rolled their own" so one...

Trying to understand the Rev file system

I make a backup just about every time I save my code. With revAltArchive they have a string of numbers added so that someprog.rev is saved as someprog00001.rev. When something goes wrong I open an appropriate archive copy. My confusion arrises because it opens as "someprog.rev". As I've probably mad...

Second Try at Graphs

This morning I though I had cracked it - drew a nice curved graph and even figured out how to delete all those graphic objects! This afternoon a different story. After trying to figure out why one of the buttons on my current project didn't do what it was supposed to do after half an hour I finally ...

Can't figure this one out!

SparkOut

Yes, processedCount goes up for each button-press.
Tried putting it into a var at the start and checking
agains it but as it doesn't go up we're in an endless
loop.

Perhaps adding 1 to spinCount would do it - either
that or screw the whole thing up.

Can't figure this one out!

SparkOut I have another button to do the last numbers one at a time or the value of btnVar2 could be set the the appropriate value for number of numbers left. At the moment if I have btnVar2 set to five and 50 numbers in a file I can load say 30 to start then do them 5 at a time until processedCount...

Can't figure this one out!

Another roulette prog I'm working on needs some code and I can't figure out how to make it work. Loads a file of numbers - say 152. Processes selected number - say 100. A button to process next say 10 numbers - so that stats can be calculated after each ten additional numbers have been processed Cli...

Using "tab" for field input

I want to put an "X" in a certain position in a field. I've set the tabStop and can send the right number of tabs but always get the "X" in the same position. Think it might be that the "cursor" is at the position in the line from the first set of "tabs". If this is the problem how do I set the curs...

Common Handler for a number of Buttons

Tried a few variations in an attempt to find a way of using the same code for a number of buttons without having to repeat the code in each button handler. Is there a way to have one line of code in each "mouseUp" handler which directs to common code elsewhere? Expect it might need 'with message' to...
