Don't blame the tool when the architecture fails.
Blame?

I'm aware there is nothing more to say about this.

I really appreciate your time and knowledge. But let's keep our minds open, speak frankly and do not confuse things.

Regards,

Benito

Hi Jan, The only thing we can try and give you at that point is a workaround, and in my case, also an explanation of why I wouldn't conect to the database directly in the first place . I think these thoughts and advice should be posted as a warning to other users like me, in a visible place. I feel ...

Hi Jan, Thanks a lot for your ideas on security. My problem at this stage is not security, is as mentioned that the connection gets lost, the program response is real clumsy. In other words; it is useless. Now I do not see what else to do, I'm using the database tools provided in Runtime Revolution....

Hi Mark, Do not take this personally. My feeling is that a users forum is a superb place to learn, exchange experiences, feedback, help others but there is room for complains too. If RR team does not visit this forum is because they do not want to do it. My guess is that it is very important to take...

Database connection lost?

Hi, I did a MySQL database front end with RevStudio 2.8.1. It is a simplistic project to retrieve/edit/save/delete database records. I am connecting to the database manually using revOpenDataBase() and all seems to work nice. I can navigate in my database records, but if I try to save a edited recor...

Hi Tom, The thing is if you return myHTML from the JS script then you can put that in a variable in RR. You would need access to the JS script to add a return line. Yes, we have access to the JS script. My idea is to use a open source editor like the ones mentioned. I am not a RR expert, but I use a...

Hi Mark, In what way isn't a Rev field WYSIWYG? Or more precisely, how are the two JS-based editors more WYSIWYG than a Rev field? This is what I am looking for: http://www.benitoestrada.net/images/tinymce400.jpg (Taken from tinymce website) I see a lot of differences between this and a RunRev field...

Get info from a webpage?

Hi,

Is it possible to assign the result of a JavaScript function to a RunRev variable?

I want to interact with my webpage, it loads javascript functions and would like to get some of those results in my RR application.

Ideas?

Thanks for your time.

Hi Mark, I really appreciate your tests and feedback. I am bit confused as to why you want this. Why can't you simply select a field and edit its database properties? You don't need to be in group editing mode for that. Ok, you are right. If I select the field from the Application Browser then I can...
