Printing - Zebra Label Printer Issues

Hello, everyone... Here's the problem -- if I execute the script and choose a so-called 'standard' printer, all goes well. However, if I choose the Zebra label printer, it seems that I never close printing -- I can see "spooling" in the Windows printer window, which never goes away. For fun, I dropp...

A Follow-up...

Sooo... I am wearing a LITTLE egg, but not too badly. Turns out that my account did not properly migrate to the new system and, therefore, the new system did not understand that I was an Enterprise customer. That, in turn, did not set any of the upgrade/update flags for me, leaving me feeling like a...

Re: LiveCode

Excellent follow-up items, and I recognized the third-party developer relationship, just decided not to address it at this juncture... I'm curious if there are other people who find themselves in my situation - being a purchaser in mid-contract for pre 4.5, entitled to upgrades at no cost during the...

Limited Liability Partnerships and the EULA

It appears that Runtime Revolution is not publicly owned. Sad. However, I was piqued by this section of the current EULA, posted on the website: "The Licensed Editions have built in limits that restrict the use of certain features ("Limits"). Such Limits are published on our web site from time to ti...

Re: LiveCode

Forget the old model, and you'll appreciate how you get a lot of functionality for just the target platforms you need. While 'forgetting' might work for Wolfgang, it doesn't work across the board. Let's say, for the sake of argument, that you've invested in Enterprise -- and paid for all those upda...

Re: LiveCode

Actually, I'm trying to determine what, exactly, the cost of "upgrade" will be. I'm an enterprise user, as well as a founder of OnRev - however, the site isn't very cooperative with my login and fails to recognize my past purchases... Also, what will the long-term costs be(come) - will there be a co...

Re: LiveCode

I'm not a happy camper, either. Upgraded to Enterprise, AND a founding member of their online services. I'm now concerned about their viability as a company and what my best response to this (significant) change should be. I'd be curious to hear from others who feel they have been treated like unwan...

Don't know why...

Well, it turns out that if you're working in the IDE, when you open the stack it doesn't appear to run the openStack command. However, I still found the same problem after a build. I did, however, find a solution: If I issued an on openStack command that clicked my working button, the system did exa...

A point of frustration (or two)...

Well, the build runs fine on my Mac, before I build it as a stand alone app and move it to the PC... However, when I move it to the PC, it will run for some time (an hour or more, but not significantly longer). Then the build crashes and needs to be restarted. Such is life under Windows, eh?! So, I ...

Works great, one updated item to note...

The script works great, however, if you're planning on using this script, please note that you need to initialize cTimeMinutes by putting the minute marker you want to count toward. In other words, if you're looking to trigger the event every 50 minutes after the hour, you need to insert: put 50 int...

Excellent!

I'll drop your code into my script and play with it, but the logic looks like what I was shooting for. Thanks much for the contribution - I'll let you know how it turns out.

time, timing, routine events, etc...

So here I am with this cool script that I've written and everything is happy - I've tested and satisfied with the outcome (Thanks to everyone for their help!) but I've encountered a small snag and could use some guidance... My script is intended to go grab information at regular intervals (preferabl...

Tried that...

I was under the impression that the "/" needed to be escaped - am I incorrect in that assumption? Thanks for the come-back.

Escaping the "/" character...

I've been going through the documentation and on-line forums for about 2 hours now and haven't been able to locate the answer to this question: Using replace, I'm trying to kill off some HTML code in a captured document, like this: replace "</td></tr><tr><td><a href="errorlist.cgi?call=" with return...

Cool beans...

I was looking at the conversation regarding serial communications, just wasn't sure if this would apply to a USB-based item or not. I wonder if there is a way to 'talk' to/from the USB interface in other ways -- granted, most items will mount as a drive, or be seen as a com device, but does that con...
