Re: Data Binding in Livecode

I would like to thank everyone who replied. To get really deeply acquainted with Livecode is something that is not done in a day. To simplify the question. Even if I understand how to create and maintain a database using LiveCode - and even I had some success with PHP and MySQL -, I can not yet unde...

Re: Possible to build a Excel-like Table

NICE INPUT. THANK YOU ..! Regarding creating fields in a scrolling group as an illusion that there is an endless number of fields, I have questions -- because I want to implement this. So, let us imagine 5 fields within a group. 3 of these fields are visible. 2 of them are only partially visible. Th...

Re: Possible to build a Excel-like Table

Possible to build a Excel-like Table

I am wondering if this is possible and I tried to get it working to some smaller degree. The usual field can be table field with columns and rows and a grid can show their position.
