Re: Konrad Zuse, the novel

Hi Mark,

how kind of you to notice! Thanks a lot! :) I hadn't even noticed that this was my 100th post; it's been quite a while since I posted my last one... due to the work on the novel, I found hardly any time for anything else... but now, back to RunRev!

Regards,

Konrad Zuse, the novel

Dear Runrev forum members and visitors, for all of you who might be interested in the history of computers, their inventor, and his venturesome life... The computer was invented in 1933 by Konrad Zuse, in Berlin, Germany. The story of his life is quite intriguing. He built the first working computer...

Re: Datagrid sorting issues

Hi Trevor, thanks for your patience. I added the sortDataGridColumn handler. Before that, I issued the dgProp property set command. After several reloads of the stack, now the sorting is finally disabled. Is there a way to learn what setting has precedence over which other settings? For example, you...

Re: Datagrid sorting issues

Hi Trevor, an update on my problem: I managed to replace the datagrid with the permanently highlighted column header with an old version that does not have any highlighted column headers and thus no automatic sorting. Anyway, when I give the set dgProp["sort by column"] command, nothing changes, i.e...

Re: Datagrid sorting issues

Trevor, another oddity: when I now tried to execute your set dGProp command again, the message box responded by saying Message execution error: Error description: Chunk: can't find object I then created a new card (empty) for the same stack, deleted the new card again without doing anything with it,...

Re: Datagrid sorting issues

Hi Trevor, wow - that's what I call service! :) Before reading your explanations, I had done a forum search for related posts and also read through your datagrid API. In the forum, I had already found the command you provided, to be entered and executed in the message box, set the dgProp["sort by co...

Datagrid sorting issues

Hi group, whenever I load data into my datarid, the grid sorts by a certain column. I want to disable any kind of automatic sorting alltogether, but cannot find how to. When I check the "Columns" tab in the property inspector for the datagrid, the checkbox for the respective column ("Sort by column"...

Re: RunRev Command-Line mode

Hi Ale870,

I don't know the answer to your problem, but would be interested to know a way, too.
When I started learning RunRev, I read in the forum somewhere that you can even program a faceless app with RunRev, provided you know how... :)

Re: rendered text conundrum

Hi Reelstuff, not a paygrade issue :) You will find a special utf-encode and decode function in the Blowfish stack that you downloaded. You can use it even more easily than the Blowfish routines, since you don't need to provide any key for encoding and decoding. I think you would benefit from utf-8 ...

Re: rendered text conundrum

Also, you could try to utf-8-encode the plaintext before encryption.
Decryption would have to be followed by utf-8-decode.
That should give you platform-independency.

(You might even try URL-encode and URL-decode instead of utf8-)

Re: remove space in string

Tim, please don't hesitate to ask if you should need help. If you're new to Runtime Revolution, you will probably need a lot of input from the forum, just as I received it when I got here. I think you will find that most (if not all) of the folks here are very friendly and helpful. That said, what c...

Re: remove space in string

In addition, I think that you, the programming user of the Blowfish library, should take provisions so as to make the length of the string to be encoded a precise multiple of 8. This way, you know what there will be as padding bytes, and can react accordingly. This way, the security of the Blowfish ...

Re: remove space in string

Hi Reelstuff, the Blowfish code was written by me. If the length of your plaintext (the text that your are encoding) is not a precise multiple of 8, space characters are appended at the end so as to make the length a multiple of 8. If you want to encode a text and don't want additional appended spac...

Re: Creating a wrapper for an existing dll

I am very new to the dll for Runrev business, but the first thing that came to my mind was that if you can obtain the source somehow, recompile it with the dll skeleton provided by the ExternalEnvironmentV3 from the tutorial. Then you should have your wrapper in place. Or it might be worth looking a...
