Re: App won't maximize

Hi Mark, I apologize for not replying sooner. I got sick and had to have extensive surgery, but I'm better now. To answer your questions, I'm using the standard TopLevel stack, the one that is automatically created when one clicks on "New Mainstack" in the file menu; it's the default stack which is ...

App won't maximize

I built a program and then made it into a stand alone app. As part of building the program I opened the Stack Property Inspector and in the Basic Properties window clicked on Controls. The Title Bar Controls I used are: Title, menu, minimize. I wanted the app to be able to be minimized when I wasn’t...

Re: Custom Property to store data in a standalone ap

Magice and Newbie4, Where to start? I’m sure I’m going to sound really dense. Most of the info you guys gave me is new, so it might take me some time to completely understand it. Problem is guys, I don’t know how to save data in a custom property which is then saved as an “external” stack in another...

Re: Custom Property to store data in a standalone ap

Hi Klaus, Thanks for replying to my post. Unfortunately, I don’t know how to create an invisible stack on the fly. I wouldn’t know how to code it or even how to get started coding it. Do you mean that the user could create an invisible stack while the standalone app is running? If that’s what you me...

Custom Property to store data in a standalone ap

I’m not sure of this, so hence the reason for this post. I think I remember reading somewhere that using a Custom Property (CP) to store data (text) in a standalone app won’t work because LiveCode won’t let the data be changed, so adding or deleting data from the CP in the standalone won’t happen. A...

Target and Me

I have a confession, I have never really understood the difference between Target and Me in LiveCode. I can imagine most of your reactions will be, “Oh My God, you gotta be kidding me, this guy should have learned this stuff in LiveCode 101”. I’m self taught in LiveCode and I have never really grasp...

Custom Property Data storage???

Questions about Custom Properties (CP). How much data (text) can be put into a CP? Is there a limit to the amount? Can a CP be used as a storage container for data (text) in the same way we use an external text file to store data? Is it routinely used to store large amounts of data or is storing lar...

Limit to the amount of data??

Is there a limit to the amount of data one can put in a custom property? If there isn't, could it be used like a external file?

Re: Limit a text field to a single line?

First of all I want to thank all of you who made suggestions regarding this post. Secondly, I'm now really confused. I'm not sure what to do and which suggestion to use. Maybe if I'm more specific that will help you to know what I'm trying to do. Picture this: one large text field (t1) and one small...

Limit a text field to a single line?

Is there a way to limit a text field to a single line so that the user could not use the return key to make a second line? I've tried to find info on this topic but have not been successful. One would think it would be a property of the field like in Visual Basic where there are single line text fie...

Re: How to tell FIND command to stop searching

Hi Simon and Klaus, Thank you both for responding to my post. I want you to know that I did read the docs regarding the Find command, but the wording: "If the text is not found in the stack, the result function returns "Not found"" didn't mean anything to me at the time; I just didn't clue in at the...

How to tell FIND command to stop searching

I have a program with one text field that contains several paragraphs of text and another field that allows the user to enter a text string which the program then searches the larger body of text for each instance of it. When an instance of the string is found it is highlighted in yellow. Below is t...
