Re: LiveCode and videos

VLC uses the open source ffmpeg which in turn contains LibAVCodec which is an open source repository of codecs giving a wide range of codec support. I am hoping that the upcoming future re-workin of Livecode's media engine will be implementing ffmpeg and the LibAVCodec libraries - since they are mul...

Re: Database to Data Grid and back again - best methods

Hi bangkok, I really appreciate you taking the time to help me get the basics down on this. I was just working through your first reply on this thread again and it really helps. Breaking it down into simple stages and not getting too carried away with all the many possibilities of DataGrids is defin...

Re: Compilation errors explicitVariables & variable Shadowin

Sorted it thanks guys, it seems the option in preferences/Script Editor for Strict Compilation Mode was on. This does raise the question of best practises though. Presumably I should pre-declare variables really. What is the reason for this? Just ease of management i.e. put them all together at the ...

Compilation errors explicitVariables & variable Shadowing

I finally moved over to my Full Commercial version of Livecode from the Community edition and now scripts that compiled fine when I clicked Apply in the Code Editor before throw loads of errors. I have tried putting: set the explicitVariables to false At the head of my mainstack script but this seem...

Re: Getting placeholder variables to work in revDataFromQuer

Brilliant. That did the trick, thanks. I was wondering if there was some kind of syntax I was getting wrong. I guess I am too used to developing in Filemaker where only explicit values require quotes and variables don't use them or they are parsed as if explicit rather than being replaced with the c...

Getting placeholder variables to work in revDataFromQuery

I am trying to get a list of columns in a SQLite table - chosen by the user from a list of Tables in the database. The following works fine: function ListTableColumns pTable local tColumnList, tSelectedTable put pTable into tSelectedTable databaseConnect put revDataFromQuery(comma, return, GetDataba...

Re: Database to Data Grid and back again - best methods

Thanks Bangkok, That's a helpful start. What it still leaves me wondering is how the columns match up - I presume this simple method relies on the number and order of the DG columns matching those returned by the SQL Query? Larry, Your RunRevLive 13 presentation sounds like it would be immensley hel...

Detecting a selection being made on a Data Grid.

I have come upon a tutorial which mentions using the dgHilitedLines property to find out which line in a Data Grid is selected but it does not make it clear where you might put this script to detect it (Data Grids seem to have so many elements to them : substacks and the custom control with nearly 9...

Database to Data Grid and back again - best methods

I am slowly, ever so slowly, wading my way through to an understanding of how I might manage to get my information in from my database and into a Data Grid for display and editing then back into the Database. It seems to involve a lot of stages of data translation but also there seems to be another ...

Timeline & planned features new multiplatform media player

Hi, My planned app is very media centric - video in particular. I was wondering - before I get too far into implementing the media player features in my deveopment how soon you guys at runrev expect to have it coded into Livecode and released? I know initially there was a hope to get the stretch goa...

Excellent resource for learning SQL basics

I recently began trying to learn some SQL and came across this resource online. The course is not yet complete but what is there so far sinks straight in for me, I really gel with the learning/teaching style, very clear & concise. http://sql.learncodethehardway.org/ Apologies - For some reason my ac...

Re: Participant Introductions

Hi all, A little late to the party but I've been ill! Nice to meet you all and to hear that at least one of you has been busy developing database centric apps in Filemaker because that is where I'm coming from. I work in London, England as a freelance Digital Cinema camera technician in film & telev...
