Re: Setting focus to a Data Grid

A little flicker of a response is enough to go on at the moment. I'll play with it a bit.
Thank you, Michael.

Re: Setting focus to a Data Grid

Craig:
How bout if I try both? I'll try a variant (or two) of your idea while waiting for whoever cares to comment further. I get to learn something either way.
Thanks for replying.

Re: Setting focus to a Data Grid

I want to be able to use my tab key (and/or code activated by a button or another control) to "enter" the datagrid and "enter" the first field therein for navigating and editing purposes. I can already navigate and edit via mouse but I'd love to use the keyboard to go from one control to another on ...

Setting focus to a Data Grid

I can't imagine this hasn't been brought up, but I did a search here and didn't see an exact match (though a Google search mentions the topic a few times). How do you set the focus to a datagrid? I have tried this below with a test button: on mouseUp pButtonNumber set the dgfocus of group "List" to ...

Re: Using stacks on LC Server

BYU mentions "embedding a browser in a stack" which is a reference to the LC Browser control. That may be, *now*, but it is not what I was referring to. In the LC "Cloud and Database" Lesson series, it demonstrates opening a stack in a client app from a web server. How this would be functionally su...

Re: Using stacks on LC Server

I'd like a link to that article myself. I seem to remember coming across a bit about creating stacks that ran in the browser on BYU, but I was never able to find it again. BYU mentions "embedding a browser in a stack" which is a reference to the LC Browser control. In the LC "Cloud and Database" Le...

Re: Using stacks on LC Server

So does that mean I can ignore the "stack" concept (as I would with PHP) when using the server?
And does that mean anything external (other pages) get referenced by includes and requires?
And does the statement "Home stacks are created at startup" (which I've read) mean anything?

Using stacks on LC Server

I have seen several tutorials on this subject. They say a "home stack" is "created" on startup (presumably the startup of the CGI, which must happen an awful lot on a moderately employed server) and that you can then use "global scripts". This sounds pretty much like gobbledeegook to me. I understan...

Re: Calling a function in LC Server

Was the difficulty on the AJAX side or the PHP side? I've used XMLHttpRequest to call LC Server routines, so I may be able to help once I learn more about where the trouble lies. I have trouble on the AJAX side because my javascript stinks. It's not you. It's JavaScript. :) But seriously, in LC we ...

Re: Calling a function in LC Server

BYU is particularly useful for the novice (me), but the trouble is you can only access a small portion of the site. Hm, I seem to remember the index being completely open, through at least the 210 materials. You mean that has changed? This text on the main page at: http://livecode.byu.edu/ BYU DigH...

Re: Calling a function in LC Server

Someone else also had information on Lc server, but I think that was more basic. If I remember it, I'll stop in with the link. This was pretty basic http://livecode.byu.edu/internet/revservercripting.php I think they have more on it (but you have to go through the index for that). There was also ht...

Re: Calling a function in LC Server

RE: Calling functions Indeed, I ended up just translating directly from PHP to call my functions, as you suggested, which works fine except for some cases of AJAX, which I have trouble doing in PHP also.

Re: Calling a function in LC Server

There's a nearly infinite range of things we could convey about using LiveCode on servers, so for the moment I'm most interested in addressing the specific questions asked and then we'll see where things lead once those are out of the way. fritzdekatt, if I read your opening post here correctly it ...
