Re: HTML source code within Web Browser?

I understand what you mean now, that makes sense.

Re: HTML source code within Web Browser?

I didn't know the htmltext of a widget would be different, it's a web view so shouldn't it be whatever the URL sends?

The htmltext of a field is of course very different usually.

Re: HTML source code within Web Browser?

If the browser widget already is displaying the URL, you can also:

get the htmltext of widget "browser"

Re: Scrolling

What doesn't work exactly? I did notice you've mixed up variables and literals a bit but that should only affect the deleteMobileControl handler in this case.

The handlers were meant to use variables everywhere but if you want to use quoted literals instead then they should be consistent.

Re: Preventing substack from being opened

Anyone know if a separate password protected stack is more secure than a password protected subStack? I doubt there's a difference. The only unique thing about a substack is that it's inside the same file on disk. But it acts the same either way. If a user has access to the IDE there's no good way ...

Re: BBC article about HyperCard

I have Google Translate! I was speaking to someone at the local Farmer's Market last week in Hmong.

So there. :)

Re: BBC article about HyperCard

I tried it the other way. LC is all I've ever known and I can dream in it. For a while I dabbled in C and while I didn't have to learn about repeat structures and other logical processes, the syntax was so foreign that it took me 2 days to write one single line of code that would even compile.

Re: Images in databases

I'm not the right person to ask about database interactions but I'm pretty sure this has been discussed here in the past. Did you try searching the forums for "images in databases" or variations of that? I seem to remember the word "blob" is involved. I do so little work with databases but lots of o...

Re: BBC article about HyperCard

It's a catch-22. Schools want to teach what's currently in demand, which means they don't teach LC, which means it doesn't become in demand.

Re: Images in databases

Images are already binary, they don't need conversion.

Re: BBC article about HyperCard

I probably phrased that badly. As I understand it, Scottish government controls much of the educational curriculum, and has included LC as a language suitable for students learning to code. More than 30% of the secondary schools in Scotland are using it as an introductory programming language as of ...

Re: Used "Save As" to make a copy, but now confused by stack vs file names

I don't know why stack and file names should be different either, mine are almost always the same except for the extension on the file name. Maybe you're thinking of stack names, which is the problem here.

In case the OP doesn't know, the stack name can be set in the srack's property inspector.

Re: BBC article about HyperCard

I'll add that the education market was the primary target for uptake and promotion a few years ago. That's how Scotland adopted LC as their intro programming language a few years ago. Focus then shifted to China (successful) and some other countries where it couldn't compete against educators who wa...
