Using a file to store you data is only necessary once your applications quits (in order for it to reload the data next time you open it). As the data changes while the application is open , there is no need to write information to the disk. Keep it in a global variable. And write all the changes upo...

[put field "B" after field "A"] is a valid command all-though it doesn't conserve the formatting. To conserve formating you could use the following command to put 2 fields together: set the htmltext of field c to (the htmltext of field a & the htmltext of field b) Then to print, you shouldn't have t...

Yes I agree, the Revolution environment could be much more user friendly. First of all a lot of work needs to be done on the documentation. I think every command or propriety page should just be a wiki entry somewhere, so we could all add our examples and knowledge to it. The RunRev team should lear...

Re: newbie question; write to file, read from file?

.How do I specify which line of the file to write to? You're better off making all the changes you want to your data and writing it all in one go to the file once it's ready. Trying to change the file as the data evolves is tricky. I have posted my standard handlers for reading and writing to a fil...

That's doable. To get web pages just use commands similar to: put url "http://www.google.com/search?q=abundance" into myWebPage And to write to a file the following is of use: on writeFile answer folder "Please choose a folder for" && the short name of this stack && "to write in." put it into theOut...

I see the auto-align stuff, but how would you do it with a script? It could be something like: repeat with x = 1 to the number of btns of this card set the left of btn x to 100 end repeat And as I said earlier, if you want to see your own customized guideline, just use the 'line' graphic object.

You can of course just add your own guidelines in the matter of 2 lines of script... without mentioning the auto-align fonctionalities you can find in the inspector...

No that seams impossible.

One should look at the documentation on that file format, but I'm very doubtful.

The card inspector also gives you an easy GUI way to change the card's position. Just press the little arrows next to the field indicating the card's number.

I had been using Icon Composer also in the past, but it would always mess-up the transparency in my icons. I would consider that as equally unreliable. Replacing the .icns inside the application bundle is a method, but I maintain that the most secure way of having your icon stick is to let the Finde...
