Re: Using value of Variable

Interesting, but didn't I read somewhere that accessing by short ID was significantly faster?
What do you mean they're not permanent? They won't change by themselves over time will they?

Re: Rounding up or down numbers

Hi Dazza,
The Round function applies to your formula, not to the result field!

Code: Select all

put round(fld myVar / 6.75 / 125 * 10000 * 12) into fld Result

Re: Questions on frontscript

Sorry I wasn't clear. I AM using behaviors, and nested behaviors for subclasses, and setprops for property inheritance/overriding, which is very cool btw! Before you ask, I read this too, good article btw. http://www.fourthworld.com/embassy/articles/revolution_message_path.html But my question was o...

Questions on frontscript

Hi all, I'm trying to make some kind of very basic interface to ease OOP in livecode. Let's say I have a card that represents a namespace, and a bunch of behavior buttons on it. I'd like to implement a contextual menu to Create New Class, Create SubClass, Delete Class, Edit Script etc (just like the...

Re: RPN example? SOLVED

Actually it was very easy! I'm not sure I did everything right but I finally got it working. Now I just have to change my parser from PN to RPN and write my custom operators. Thanks for the support. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/68360154/BSS.JPG global RPNstack -- Pop and Push "methods" functi...

Re: RPN example?

You must be thinking "Who is this guy who wants to implement custom operators and doesn't even know about Do ?!?" Back then I was 15 and I didn't really script anything. HC had a button wizard with destination an visual effect menus (I kind of miss it...). The most complex thing I did was have the M...

Re: RPN example?

Oh yes! That's what I wanted to do! Indeed it was clunky :)
I missed "the value of" and "Do" Thanks!
Coming from other languages, I was thinking "(PHP) Livecode has an eval function like perl", and "Do" was associated with "Loop while" in my mind!
Again thanks for your kind help.

Re: RPN example?

Hi Craig, Thanks for your reply. Yes I feel at home already =) I should have said that I do not want to make a calculator, but I want to translate from human notation to polish notation and then compute the result. The reason I'm doing this is because I use custom operators, nothing to do with "Plus...

Re: RPN example? SOLVED

HI! I'm new to the forum, and I'd like to thank the team first for bringing Hypercard back to life! I used to make adventure games when I was a teenager back in the 90s. I wonder if someone could share a RPN expression example. I've been through the RPN calculator sample stack but it's a big mess, s...
