Re: CRUD SQLite example

Yes. It's me! These days, I only have one application that still uses LiveCode. It's a web scraping application that I developed for my personal use. Also, I have become fairly proficient with two other development platforms. Above all, I always on the lookout for new technologies that will give me ...

Re: LiveCloud.io Cloud DB (Questions)

Mark: Great answer on question 3: Header/Detail Options. I'm very excited about the scalability of the NoSQL model. And especially the built in user authentication. Suddenly this opens up a new world of possibilities. More query range support could be added. 8- Exactly what field types are supported...

Re: LiveCloud.io Bundle Offer (Questions)

3- Since CanelaDB is a NoSQL DB (as opposed to traditional relational database), generally speaking, what would be the difference when accessing records with a typical Header/Detail relationship? 4- I see there is extensive support for defining keys. When doing a Query (read) from the online CanelaD...

LiveCloud.io Cloud DB (Questions)

I have a few questions. I just received an almost unbelievable (email) from "The Livecode Team". Point and click to create your database and to automatically generate the LiveCode scripts you need. How much additional work will be required to get this generated code to populate a table?? (An example...

Re: Script Editor / Debugger Problem

Yes!

Thanks guys! That was it! In all my years using LiveCode, I've never had the occasion to use the Script Debug Mode switch. Flipped that switch. Now everything is back to normal.

I always say, "The tech support forums for LiveCode are the best I've ever seen."

Re: Script Editor / Debugger Problem

Good point! Those buttons I'm looking for only appear when the code breaks. The REALLY odd thing is the code never breaks. You'll notice in my screen capture, there are two places where the code should break. 1- There's a outline of a red dot on the beep command. 2- and there's an outright breakpoi...

Re: Script Editor / Debugger Problem

Another clue. To get around this problem, I decided to start this project in version 8.1.6, which I have spent 100+ hours in. And... there I had the same problem. So it's not a 9.0 bug, but rather something in my Windows 10 environment. I run Kaspersky all the time. I tried turning if off. That did...

Script Editor / Debugger Problem [solved]

It's been a while. But I've kept my license current. So now I go and download the new version 9.0.1 All is well. But when I look at the Script Editor / Debugger it's different. The last time I used LiveCode, there was buttons for Step, Step Over and Stop. They're no longer there. Plus, this simple c...

Re: LiveCode Indy 9.0.0 Build 15017 (Grid Problem)

Thanks for your replies... Jacque & bogs. Good to know, if need be I can downgrade to 8.1.4. (Hope it doesn't come to that.) As for my AddLine Handler, that's the code I included at the start of this tread. Though... that works fine. No problem there. ANOTHER CLUE (new day); The Dictionary did not a...

Re: LiveCode Indy 9.0.0 Build 15017 (Grid Problem)

I'VE GOT ANOTHER CLUE. I'm working on this application. And according to the Windows 10 Task Manager, it starts out using about 75 MB. Then after working for a few hours, LiveCode gets very sluggish. So much so that I have to continually close down LiveCode and reload to correct. Today in the Tex Ed...

First let me say I've really been enjoying all the nice little amenities of the new 9.0 version!! But I'm having this one VERY odd problem with the grid. Here are the clues. Maybe you can help me figure this out. I create a Grid with three columns. (any amount is okay) Then I populate the Grid with ...

Good morning! Thank you Klaus! Oh!! I didn't realize that HTML <> XML! No wonder ever time I tried to "learn" how to do this, it ended up being a waste of time. So... I have done MANY web page scraping routines before. This is well within my skill set. But thanks to Klaus, at least I won't feel guil...
