Select multiple folders?

Is there a built-in handler for letting the user select multiple folders?
I've only found the standard single-folder selector.

Re: Field type Password

There are plenty of ways of doing it with workarounds.
Which is not the point of my original post.

Re: LC aborts large repeats..?

Hi Craig,

Yes the issue goes away if I use fewer loops.

I'm using 6.5.2, will test with 6.6 and see if it's the same.

LC aborts large repeats..?

I'm doing a little light statistical analysis, which means I'm running batches of repeats. I was having an issue where LC would abort the repeat when I set the number of repeats over roughly 3 million repeats, so I figured I would just do a repeat of repeats, and do batches of 1 million batches each...

Re: Non-blocking repeat?

Thanks Craig, that did the trick (Seems to keep the GUI from locking up)

Re: Non-blocking repeat?

I just ran your stack, and while it says it only took 578ms to bold, it actually locked up for about 3 seconds.
The Fill field claims just over 4 seconds and seemed about accurate.
(I'm using 6.5.2 btw)

Re: Non-blocking repeat?

Hi Bernd, The adverbs file contains 1338 separate words. Yes, the idea is to change any word in the text field, that is also in the adverbs list, to bold. My test-text is 103958 words, 622791 characters. My assumptions about CRLF aren't assumptions, they're there in the text after it was copied in, ...

Non-blocking repeat?

I have a simple program that goes over a block of text and compares a list of words, if the word is present it's replaced with a bold version of itself. The problem is that with long texts (Book length) the program locks up until it's done, so I'm wondering if anyone knows of a threading or non-bloc...

Re: Saving audio recording to variable?

Hi Neil, Uhm, no? One person points out that I'm not "saving" I'm "streaming" (That's all he points out..) and the other person says that what I'm trying to do is impossible, and describes a problem he had with a similar problem with previous versions of LC. Not sure how that would help, other than ...

Cancel libURLDownloadToFile?

Just wondering if there's a way to stop downloading a file started with libURLDownloadToFile?
I don't need resume or pause or anything, just a "Cancel" function, I couldn't find anything online or in the docs.

Field type Password

Just a small one, but it would be nice to have a checkbox to turn a text field into a password box, no more fiddling with doing that manually.

Sensing if the stack/card is open in the IDE?

Does anyone know of a way to check if the card or stack is open in the IDE vs. compiled?
I have a few timed functions that run automatically every 2 minutes and updates a field, but when I edit groups that doesn't include that field, I get an error as if the field didn't exist.

Saving audio recording to variable?

I'm toying with an idea that includes streaming at least audio between users using sockets, and one of the first things that struck me is that writing to harddrive should be avoided due to the slow speeds of reading and writing, so I'd like to just save it in memory instead, is there a way to record...
