Re: datagrid with scrolling text field, linefeeds

Thanks Oliver! I kept working at it before your reply came in and figured out that the idea on using a short substitution character block was sound, the problem was the particular characters I chose. Apparently "|*|" means something special and was throwing things off. When I made the substitution s...

datagrid with scrolling text field, linefeeds

Hello all... I've got a rev app I'm working on that displays db data in a table-style datagrid. DB text fields that are intended to contain potentially long prose/notes/etc, which would include linefeeds in the content, are giving me trouble. In Rev, I can write to the DB just fine, even when my tex...

Solved Own Problem, here's the deal

OK, well, solved my own problem again and thought I would post what it was just in case it might benefit some other developer who hits the same issue. I should also note that I had this same problem with revstudio 4 trial version on both Win and Mac: exactly the same error results, and exactly the s...

Rev4 Studio SQLite problem

Hello gang; long time no see... I've got a rev app I've been working on in my spare time for months now and was very near release when rev4 came out (I'm on 3.5 normally). I downloaded the trial and installed it to see what was new, especially the new dynamic image effects. Very handy, simple to use...

Solved my own issue, here's how

Hello again everyone! I solved my own problem and thought it would be good to post both what the solution was and what the diagnostic process was which revealed the solution so that others might benefit. I'm not claiming any special prowess here, just trying to "give back" by helping to save other d...

DB Image Retrieval Problem

Hello all! Hoping someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong here. My stack is a GUI for an SQLlite DB. I have a db table, then in runrev I have a "get picture" button, an image object, and a button set for db record navigation. The get picture button works correctly, or at least I assume so, at getti...

hot damn

heck yeah, working perfectly now. Eliminates the need for me to have a "post this edit" button on the end of the row, leaving that much more room for data display.

many thanks, Trevor.

Right on...

Yeah, that makes perfect sense. Again, major thanks. You and a couple other folks here on the forums are SO getting a free copy of what I come up with and props in the "about this app" box... don't know if you'll have use for it or if it will be an adequate token of thanks, but it's all I've got to ...

OK, this will put me in the right direction...

Thanks again, Trevor. You Da Man. So, if I am reading this right, a good procedure might be something like this, placed inside the column behavior: on CloseFieldEditor pFieldEditor put the dgIndex of me into theIndex put the short name of me into theFieldname put the text of pFieldEditor into theVal...

newbie datagrid question: field editing

Hi All... I have a datagrid, table style, in which some columns have editing allowed. The grid is meant to be a live front end into an SQLite DB, so I am trying to do what is necessary to make that happen, ie, when a field is changed, write it to the DB immediately. In my grid's script i have placed...

Datagrid refresh

Hello all! In the datagrid user guide PDF and the Lessons, it's noted that you should not attempt to refresh the grid from a control inside the grid. If my understanding is correct, this is because Rev is trying to delete the very control that is calling the refresh. Yes? Ok, so... how does one get ...

Thanks, but...

Hi Jan... Again, thanks for your help. It worked, kinda. As I expected, this gets the *initial* population of the button to have DB values, but when the DB entries change, the button should change, too, without me having to go in to Query Builder and hit the Refresh. I assume I'm going to need to do...

Nope, still broken in 3.5

Just confirming that this is still broken in 3.5, will be talking to QA about it soon enough. Glad to have found Jan's fixes, have been going around and around with ONE SIMPLE, STUPID LITTLE OPTION BUTTON for 5 hours now!! Jan's fixes at least made the Menu Items bits of the Database section availab...
