Lineoffset() finding line beginnings?

Hi, something is blocking my brain. I searched the dictionary, I googled at my best knowledge, nothing found. Maybe some kind soul can help me with a one-liner? Problem: I have a locked field (MyFld), that contains multiple lines of entries. I have an input field, and whenever something is written i...

Re: retrieve livecode code from standalone desktop app

Hi, If you made [...] your stanadalone with the Community version You SHOULD be able to open the standalone with a text editor and retrieve the code. Having said that; I tired just now and got in a right mess :/ Just opened a small standalone.exe (3MB+) in my editor and searched for "mouseup". A few...

Re: Simple app communication with server

Hi, I see you're using sockets communication. AFAIK not yet available for Android. To your questions: 1.) How can I reject incoming data from unwanted sources? on ServerClientConnected pSocket -- Safety measures: Known IPs may connect, else we can connect via a known token if checkallow(GetMySocket(...

Re: Query problem: where condition with Text

Hi, may be off topic, but I have found it a good way to create my SQL statements in a reliable environment (SQLite Manager, MS-Access, HeidiSQL, ...) at first, test that they give the proper results with random arguments, and only then copy the query over into LC. I'm using a text editor (EditPad) f...

Re: Create one PDF

Hi, It is a pity that we can't send the mail directly from LiveCode and need to do it from ThunderBird...:-( since you say: And i am doing it in Windows...:-( Have you ever tried Blat ? I haven't tried yet (still using a prehistoric version of Pegasus Mail ...), but what I've seen looks quite good. ...

Re: Implement DataGrid in C/C++

Hi, Create a DataGrid that is not formed out of scripted objects but formed as part of the underlying system as per other controls. Supporting this. I tried the DataGrid thing as it is, but find it all but comprehensive. I'd so much love to have: An LC data structure like our arrays, but that we can...

Re: Newbe… which DB?

Hi, For concurrent write access I'd think of ways of handle it [...] I've read a bit in the SQLite documentation today. Seems it's a bit slow in doing transactions (it does all action queries with transactions as it seems) when you fire up a series of small "INSERT INTO"s or such stuff (because it s...

Re: MS-Access VBA and LC

Hi, You have it in LC. [...] You can work directly on arrays. And then, write update your SQL. So perhaps you should try to do EVERYTHING within LiveCode. Thx, Bangkok. Yes, I know, I can do string operations & calculations on arrays, and LC actually is very good at this ( That's why I'm happily bac...

Re: MS-Access VBA and LC

Hi, please check the "do" command in the dictionary, sounds like this is what you need! It lets you DO "strings" as AppleScript (Mac) and VBScript (Windows), maybe more, no idea :D Thx, that what I'm after ;-) But I don't want to do: do MyStatement as VBScript rather I'd love to do: do "D:\Databases...

Re: Newbe… which DB?

Hi, I work for a big company who has its servers, many databases, everything managed by our IT Offices. Just an idea: Isn't it possible to persuade the IT guys to create a small database for 'in house development' only? I bet they have some database engine(s) running already (on the big servers), an...

MS-Access VBA and LC

Hi, anybody tried this already? I have to do some heavy database work, and instead of to do it in LC, I'd by far prefer to utilize the powers of Access. All I need to do can easily be done within modules inside Access, as functions. I'd just need to call these functions from LC, using VBScript. Any ...

Hi all, Case solved. 2 Problems found: 1.) At a certain, important, but well hidden spot in the code the specification of the path for revOpenDatabase() wasn't adjusted after a change. But this wasn't the main problem - it only prohibited to use a web shop ... Much worse: 2.) My testclient (that I u...
