Re: Copying text in a Standalone app

Yep - see the "copy" command in the Dictionary. Yes, that much I had already figured out. I should have phrased my question, "what is the preferred way to handle the issue." I had coded my field as follows: on commandKeyDown pKey if pKey is "c" then copy else pass commandKeyDown end if end commandK...

Re: Connecting one text field to another

You've now turned the corner to a different problem. To accomplish your task you should probably look at filter. This is untested, but something like: local tData on mouseenter put fld "theData" into tData end mouseenter on keydown var put var after me put empty into field "output" if me is among t...

Copying text in a Standalone app

I added an edit menu to my app that has a Copy option. How I do I make it possible to copy the text in an existing text field once I create a Standalone?

Custom Splash Screen?

Is there any way to customize the Splash Screen in the Educational version of LiveCode? I have no intent to remove the notice about the educational version and about no commercial distribution, just add a custom picture and name of our school.

Re: Connecting one text field to another

Hi ICCS, Just to make sure you can use craig's script, your data should be in this format in fld theData: Apple Fruit Banana Fruit Bandana Clothing Tomato Vegetable (Name space Group) look up the "word" keyword This might be overkill but I thought I'd add it. Simon This latest change works great! A...

Re: Forcing all capitals in a text field

Depending on what is in the keydown, you can probably combine the two. Want to post your script? Also, as dunbar (craig) pointed out, my script could be turned into a 1 liner since its silly to use a conditional in this CASE. (pun intended) Post your current script, and most likely toUpper can be i...

Re: Connecting one text field to another

How do I insure that when a match is being made, it does so for the whole word, not just part. That is, if my list contains both "cheeseburger" and "cheese," and the user types in "cheese" the result is the match for cheese and not cheeseburger.

Re: Forcing all capitals in a text field

one way would be to use the toUpper function. (in the dictionary) you can either wait for all input to complete and then change everything to upper, do using key events (keydown, or rawkeydown) or you could have it run every time the text changes in the field in any way. (including delete, returns,...

Connecting one text field to another

How do I connect one text field to another so that a text entry in Field 1 produces a certain text output in Field 2? My information is currently contained in a lengthy two column word processor table. What I'd like is for the app to be able to match up the two columns along each row. That is, if th...
