My splash application calls a web service on the applications website that I use and tests the value of the returned value from the web service to the custom property of the application.

Re: Error Message Received

I have not used any handler by the name of either cRevGeneral or revProvile within the application. I do have some loops and will have to check them to make sure they are complete.

Error Message Received

In the application I have started to get an error message when in development mode that I am unable to figure out.

The error message is:

The handler: cRevGeneral has reached the recursion limit of: 400000. Execution will be terminated to prevent hung.


Any insight on this?

Re: DataGrid Inquiry

Simon, This is very interesting as on the line 508 it should have already downloaded the stack from the internet and extracted it. I guess it is time to go back to the drawing board. I will try and understand the next post and see where I get. As with every new thing I try and do, I will overcome at...

Re: DataGrid Inquiry

Hi Graham, Can you post your stack here. Much easier for us to debug. Simon Simon, I sent you a PM with the information.

Re: DataGrid Inquiry

No at this time this is a Desktop Application but once I get it working for the Desktop, I am wanting to create an iPad/Tablet Application. The application will not work on an iPhone due to the screen size.

Re: DataGrid Inquiry

Well after working on this for the past 2 days, I am about to give up. At this point, I have deleted the DataGrid from the card and also removed the associated card within the Data Grid Templates stack.

Re: revQueryDatabase inquiry

I figured it out. The command returns a recordSetID then I use another Database Command to get the results from the record set. I ma not used to these extra steps. But it was a good learning experience.
