Re: Start Centre Forums

Is this going to be fixed? It gives a very poor first impression.

Cheers

Start Centre Forums

Apologies if this has already been covered (I've been concentrating on a non RunRev project recently). Has the Forums tab on the Start Centre stopped updating for everyone?

I have one listing appearing and the link doesn't work.

Cheers

Hi Michael, Have you tried to trouble shoot your SQL by simplifying it. ie does select * from projects where projects.projectID = doors.projectID work? Does select * from projects, doors where projects.projectID = doors.projectID work? Also I couldn't understand what this was all about. "and project...

loved working with HyperCard, and would like to get back into it You will surely love Revolution too. If you are looking for a platform to develop apps on yourself I don't think that it matters that Revolution is a minority IDE and language. What matters is can you use it to produce what you want e...

And as for PHP, I don't use it much anymore at all ever since I figured out how to add mod_rewrite directives to my .htaccess to automatically pass Rev-embedded templates to a generic Rev CGI. Someone commented earlier that PHP is faster than CGI. In the real world I don't think that users notice t...

Hi Richard,

Very interesting.

Would you allow a user to put an un-validated query string directly into a .php file?

In fact why store the string in a .php file at all if you are going to use it in RunRev at both ends?

Best wishes

Phil

Thanks to all for your suggestions. I tried the Datagrid approach but in doing so realised that what Sturgis suggests was the easiest way to go for me. The one downside is the fact that the user can't go back to amend an entry because I empty the fields each time I add a line of data to my collectio...

Hi Tim, I've just re read what I have written below and it sounds a bit more harsh than I mean it to. I honestly think that you need to get your understanding of how server side scripts work and communicate with client side "forms" before you start trying to write to files on the server. What you ar...

Many thanks Bernd and David, much appreciated.

David,

Your code works great for me and does almost exactly what I want. Actually it does exactly what I want but I can't seem to get the groups to stack as I want them.

I'll let you know how I get on.

Cheers

Create new objects

I'm stuck at the bottom of a learning curve and each time I move up a bit I slide to the bottom. Here's what I'm trying to do. I have a card with a field, an Option Menu and a couple of check boxes in a line. When the user has completed a line they can decide to create a new line of objects and comp...

Hi Simon,

I think that you'll have to Google "https tunnel". I think it is going to be a tad involved.

I don't see how https could work through a proxy as the encryption/decryption works directly between one browser and one server. I guess that it would be possible to create a secure tunnel through a proxy but that sounds a bit technical. Are you sure that your firewall is blocking https port 443 tra...

Hi Simon,

What version of Revolution are you using? My understanding is that only "Enterprise" supports https. Could that cause the issue?

Cheers
