Re: weird and severe language issue

Hi Klaus, well,, the "comparing" is not the issue. No problems with the script itself (it also worked perfectly for a few years now). Bernd and I have narrowed down the problem. It has to do with the fact that LiveCode 7 stored text in some (but not all) flds (sorry for being very vague, more is not...

Re: weird and severe language issue

Still not solved (in my environment) Actually my problem is not that message Box and answer dialog show different resuts (by the way in my case it is not the first character that is being shown in the answer dialog, but everything to the first appearance of the character "2"). I don't need to "answe...

Re: weird and severe language issue

Thank you all for your ideas. I have sent my stack to Bernd and he did a great job on checking it with various versions of livecode. What he came up with, though I do not fully understand it, makes perfect sense as to how the issue came up: I have been using my stack for a long time. I created it or...

Re: weird and severe language issue

I could send it to you via mail an give you instructions on where to find the code and how to reproduce the error But I will take a little and you would have to send you...

Re: weird and severe language issue

Hey, Bernd, you are very nice, indeed. I did breakpoint the script and the variable kurs contains just wht is is supposed to contains in the variable watcher: "2015/16-1, 10k6-En" BUT When I copy and pasted the variables contents here into this post it read: " 015/16-1, 10k6-En" Is that normal behav...

Re: weird and severe language issue

I am in shame: I have worked with HyperCard and then LiveCode for about 20 years, coding highly complex stuff, but I never worked with debug mode, breakpoints and such - I just, don't know how to do that....

... Yes, I know! :oops:

Re: weird and severe language issue

Bernd,

no invisible or funny characters other than what I already posted and the return character between lines.

The fld "Kurse" is filled in a process that is much prior to reading it.
Initially it is filled by hand, I mean, typed in.

Re: weird and severe language issue

I checked with a simple stack on mouseUp put "2015/16-1, 9k1-Mu" into kurs put kurs answer Kurs end mouseUp It works as expected. So it cannot be an issue of LiveCode version or Mac OS version. It must have to do with my stack code. But how can that be? It should be impossible to alter the behavior ...

Re: weird and severe language issue

Hi Bernd, thank you very much! as I said, it used to work here, too.... It is impossible to post relevant part of the code since the stack is really heavily scripted and there are many interdependencies. I wish I coul, but nothing of my code, other than what I already posted, would make sense to any...

weird and severe language issue

Good morning, I came across what to my stack is a very severe and extremly odd issue. In my code the variable kurs contains something like "2015/16-1, 9k1-Mu" put kurs results in "2015/16-1, 9k1-Mu" answer kurs results in "2" The issue appeared just recently. I tried several older LiveCode Editions,...

Re: dateitems strangness

Yes, Carig and Bjornke, you are both right. I can't second my first impression that dateitems are suggested for calculations in the dictionary.The source of information I had in mind is this http://revolution.byu.edu/time/timeInRev.php (in the lower third of the page) The thing is that date items su...

Re: dateitems strangness

Thanks BvG, converting to seconds - as you suggested - solves the problem. It, on the other hand, is still weird that the dateItems do not work as expected (and I think also described in the dictionary). It also is rather inconvenient in the environment that I need to do the date calculations in. Bu...

dateitems strangness

Hey there, I am totally confused by this (I am working on a German system thus the dd.mm.yyyy format): set useSystemDate to true put "04.11.2013" into d1 convert d1 to dateitems put "20.11.2013" into d2 convert d2 to dateitems answer (d1 < d2) -- the answer here is FALSE !!!! set useSystemDate to tr...
