Re: On MouseUp with a parameter question

Thanks Klaus.
When I add a parameter to an object, does this initiate a change in the message path that allows the detection of the parameter?

On MouseUp with a parameter question

When I use the following code, what actually happens? This is the code for a button object: on MouseUp pBtnNum --answer pBtnNum if pBtnNum = 3 then answer "ok" end MouseUp I am assuming that by adding the parameter pBtn to the “on MouseUp” command that this allows me to access the pBtn in the script...

Re: Group objects "Lessons Learned" & question

Klaus, I don't know. when I initially did this script, it worked. Now,it does not recognise my group and stars with other objects on my card. I am completely baffled. I am just going to use ""the ChildControlName" command for now. It has been working flawlessly for now. I even tried the LiveCode ver...

Re: Group objects "Lessons Learned" & question

OK, my report back. Klaus, using "OF" group in the code above does not work, nothing changed. I went back to the code and tried. Craig, I have not tried the "if the owner of fld xField = theGroupOfInterest then..." yet. But I may use that elsewhere. But apparently Of and The are not the same and nei...

Re: Group objects "Lessons Learned" & question

Craig,
That may work, I'll explore that.
It does seem to be a little more code, depending on how many objects are on your card.
Thanks, all suggestions are valuable even for later use.

Re: Group objects "Lessons Learned" & question

Klaus,
after some thought, using "of" makes sense to me. I didn't think about that.
Thanks again you are always most helpful with my questions.

Re: Group objects "Lessons Learned" & question

Hi Klaus,
are you saying the key word for this script is "of" Group, not "in" Group that I was using?

sharing fields on multiple cards

I know that I can have groups on multiple cards. But, how do I share a table or a field on 2 cards that reflect the same data? for example: if I have a table on one card and I want to see and edit that same table on another card. I have made groups with fields that are shared on 2 cards but they don...

Re: a new problem

Yes, I tried that too.
I tried everything.
I have taken the time to rewrite my code and I seem to have gotten rid of the hidden culprit, wherever it is.

Re: a new problem

Hey Craig, Thanks for the tip. I actually looked everywhere that I could find. I know it's there but where? I finally started remarking out sections of my scripts to search for the affected script. I can't find it anywhere. I beginning to think that it is somewhere that is hidden and am actually bac...
