Re: How pass parameters to exe

Hi, Works perfect! but now I want exit the app when finish. I use the quit command but the app still reside on memory and don't auto-quit. Had similar problems with using -ui, the stack would not close properly Solved it with calling the stack in VB with "vbhidden", but that's not always possible. O...

Re: Application to Server Framework

Hi, this sounds good to me. If I understand correctly (not native English ...) you're talking about a LC server script or LC standalone that can be used as "middleware"? And can be configured using a prefs file or a substack? I have something comparable running as a faceless service on a Win server....

Re: App with multi-user-database?

Hi, Ok, so there's no direct-way to use something like a MySQL for every client without server-side coded software? For sure you could do this. If you can reach your MySQL directly from the internez, go on. Just make sure that no 2 users ever try to modify the same record at the same time! ;-) This ...

I hope I wasn't misunderstood regarding my post above yours - when I talked about "toy for pupils" I was referring to the impression the web site gave me!

Re: Better site

Hi, FWIW I have a meeting scheduled with Steven Crighton [- snip -] community feedback is an important part of any process of continual improvement. So I checked the site for a critical review. This is what I have to say: Most prominent on the web site: Everyone Can Create Apps (Bold by me) And then...

Re: Standalone settings for my app with a database

Hi, might be that you're gettting slashs in the way - too lazy to check now, I'll rather provide my tested solution. In the openstack handler of the standalone: put getMyLoc(the short name of this stack, true) & "/" into myPath Put MyPath & the SPDB of this stack into MyDB -- the SPDB contains the D...

Re: Code completion?

Hi, I fear I cannot really help you, so regard this as "bump", to maybe attract some of the more competent ppl ;-) You may have noticed that the message box (msg) already has a kind of code completion. So there's already code for it! Maybe you'll have a look at Mats' rIDE , an alternative IDE. Has n...

Re: Recently we've been investing ....[SOLVED?]

Hi, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) is not free. The free version of Red Hat was converted to the Fedora Project and was split off years ago. Just for the record, there's also CentOS , a more conservative OSS version of RHEL (compared to Fedora), perfectly suitable for servers. How many users of the...

Re: ssl

Hi, If it's the latter, then standalone apps won't get security patches. Sry that I interfere here, I'm by far not qualified. But do StandAlones get patches now, actually? Besides, I'm using libHash-Hmac by Mark Smith now, will this become obsolete? Will you be compatible with (other handler names a...

Re: Determining the active email client on OSX and Windows..

Hi, had a quick search windows-wise, found nothing usable. Preferred mail program settings should be in the registry, but on a user-defined basis. May work, but the keys I found have strange names - including those nasty unique identifiers ... From VBA, the other way, I didn't find anything useful a...

Re: In Search of the Elusive Middleware Example

Hi, I'll not be able to help you much with the dreaded middleware - I'm no PhP coder, and use a helper to do the server side code. But I may be able to give some hints. Let's try. At first, Richard already gave a lot of good advice! If I'd have to do it all for myself, I'd use LC server, or, prefera...

Re: MySQL with EasyPHP

Hi, not sure if I can help, but I may be able to give some hints: 1.) The second parameter in revOpenDatabase("mysql", ...) is the URL ("mySite.com"). If "localhost" doesn't work you might try the equivalent "127.0.0.1". Maybe add a port: "127.0.0.1:3306" If this doesn't work, try the real IP of the...

Re: Retaining Backwards Compatibility in a Changing World

Hi, even if I'm by far not competent enough to judge in this case, I'd like to post a suggestion. To understand it, isn't it that we already have 2 lines of development? The "classic" 6.* line and the new "unicode & more" 7+ line? Why don't we just fork LC? Idea: 6.* is kept as-it-is as a common den...

LC-problems on Windows

Hi, 2 problems I encounter(ed) repeatedly both on a Win2K3-R2 server, and on my Win7-64 workstation, using LC community versions from the 6.* line (up to 6.7.1): When installing a new version, it can happen ( i.e. it doesn't happen every time! ) that the new version isn't registered properly. Means,...

Hi, Be assured, Richard, that I read your article - more than once actually, and once more before writing this! :wink: And I have to row back about my claim concerning LibreOffice, it actually uses "Comma" as the default delimiter.
