Re: runrev app compared to a windows app

good luck getting Rev to work properly, it's full of bugs and they refuse
to fix them. All they want you to do is to purchase, yet again, another
upgrade. I can't even connect to ODBC databases and I have 2.9.
This company is run by a moron.

If I write a custom function or handler, let's call it 'DoSomething()', and I have some code like this: repeat for each line someLine in field "suchandsuch" put DoSomething(someLine) into SomeValue answer Some...

Get Value from Scrolling List Field

List field contains 1,2,3,4,5,infinity; one to each line. The SLF only shows one item at a time. what is the code to grab the value that is showing? The items are not 'selected' in the normal sense, they are up or down arrowed. apparently I can't just use put field "spider.depth" into someval all th...

Nested arrays

can you believe this. I have 2.9 and it doesn't support nested arrays. This product has been out for over 10 years - they support all kinds of stupid stuff like video, but they don't have the absolute basics; it's unbelievable. what kind of moron builds a development system and doesn't immediately u...

I even used only "(?Usi)href" as the rege...

Censorship

I didn't realize that children would be entering into an adult's technical forum. I certainly take no umbrage to editing, but to edit because it might offend a 'Professional' is nearsighted and juvenile. There is no such thing as a professional. I have three graduate degrees, one of which is a law d...

Where is the Rev XML demo stack?

Where is the Rev XML demo stack?

I'm using 2.9, is it in there?
or do I have to download it from somewhere?
or is it only available for 3.0?

thanks

parsing XML

has anyone a link to a white paper that has a complete segment of code that shows how to parse xml? Dumb Rev books and online docs have no examples. I went to search online docs and put in "parse xml" and go NO hits. Are these people just stupid? Parsing XML is a critical need in development and the...

lots of bugs

[Edited by assistant moderator on 19 April @ 8:13PDT] I'm using 2.9 on a thinkpad T60 using Ubuntu 7.10 and I'll tell you, I have system crashes all the time. The whole computer crashes. mouseEnter works when I'm not in runtime and keeps me from being able to edit groups, so I have to disable the f...

why it doesn't work

I figured out why it doesn't work, but haven't found a solution.

When I tab to the field, it works. When I click on the field
and openField triggers, the placing of the cursor wipes out
the hilite.
