Re: param(1) questions

@ ShadowSlash I try to avoid global variables as they are hard to handle since every open stack can access them and one tends to go into naming conventions for oneself that inadvertently declare a global in a different contexts, debugging that is a pain. I much prefer script local variables or cust...

Re: disable button until condition

Thank you shadowslash! That is simple to understand and it does what I need it to! dunbarx, thanks for the example! Your solution is a bit trickier for a new kid. I will have to come back to it later to wrap my brain around it! No problem! I was also a tad-bit confused when I started with rev, err ...

Re: param(1) questions

I think it's because the first parameter of the mouseUp handler is used for defining if the mouse button clicked was left (1, default) , right (3) or middle (2). The reason why it defaults to 1 is because you didn't define what mouse button was supposedly used to click your button "test". Thus, it r...

A few of my concerns.. Facebook and LinkedIn..

Facebook I am aware that RunRev already has Facebook page located at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/RunRev/140982631239 . Now I'm all fine with that but I think they should get the Facebook username "runrev" while it still isn't in use by any other individual or group. You can get a username for a ...

Re: disable button until condition

Shame on dunbarx for hating on globals! D:< Anyway, I tried a different approach, I used the wait [ ? ] command. I even made you a demo stack which I attached to this post. Please download it and examine what I did, I also made it so that it uses 4 variables based on your previous statement. Please ...

Re: Where is the variable watcher?

Hi deebee,

If I'm not mistaken, the Variable Watcher has been moved to the bottom of the Script Editor on the Variables tab. Image

Re: Multi users

That depends on what you want to limit? Do you want to limit access to the stack? Limit some commands? Etc. If you want to limit in-stack related things and you aren't using a real database, you can consider outputting the limit flag on an external file like a text file then have your stack read it ...

Re: Online Snippets library

And what about livecodeCacheGeometry, livecodeUpdateGeometry, livecodeDatabaseColumnNumbered.. Imagine those commands inside our scripts http://l.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/mesg/emoticons7/109.gif it would totally affect the length of the scripts! I know revCacheGeometry and the lot can still be used fo...

Re: Auto-Updater

Normally your set up should work. As for your updated stack script, here's a simpler script I believe would do what you're after on your mouseUp handler.

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
  go stack "http://some.url.to.a.stack.on.the.web"
end mouseUp

Re: Quitting while saving changes

Hmm, just a random question but is this an application that you will have other people use in the future? Or will it only be used by you or a few people whom you personally made the software for? The reason I'm asking is because while it is the easiest to save the stack to the rev file, it would sti...

I'd have to agree with that statement.

EDIT:
But then, there comes the question of why this was only thought of now and not in some earlier phase of the Rev evolution?
