Re: virtual height, parsing text and some bug

Hi and thanks for answering (rev 2.9 on OSX) question 1: if I modify trought script the virtual height of the card, the minimum height of a resizable stack does not change according to it. I think it should because in this way the user gets a strange behaviour when he try to resize... I'm not sure ...

I was at RevCon, of course.

But the week before I was at another petroglyph site not far from the one in those pictures.

Looks similar to some of the images on this page:

Ah, but Flash isn't a server-side technology; it lives on the client-side as a plugin. There have been many requests for a Rev plugin, but frankly I'd much rather see Java bytecode generation. The problem with a plugin is that it still needs to be located, downloaded, and installed before anything c...

FWIW, getProp and setProp show up among the See Also entries in the Dictionary entry for customProperties, which is one of the results of your search. Making a search index for a language like this is tricky business; I wrote about 30% of the SuperTalk Language Guide and I don't wish that job on any...

I've been able to create and use cards and controls for data storage, but beyond that objects have little meaningful role in CGI work.

CGI's are just a way of dynamically generating HTML for delivery to a browser. Rev's native objects mean nothing to a browser.

What would you like to do?

Not as triggers, though you can add your votes to that request here: http://quality.runrev.com/qacenter/show_bug.cgi?id=3126 But as we did with the built-in text property, you can get and set bu...

Mr. Innanen's running two for two this evening. Good work. The only thing I might contribute is an option to expand his suggestion using property syntax. Like a good many other languages, Rev support virtual properties, with getProp and setProp handlers that are triggered whenever one of these virtu...

Mr. Innanen, that was quite good. When you write a book on Rev I'll buy a copy. Well done.

"Where" seems less important than "what".

It doesn't matter where a component is made available, but before it can be made available it must first exist.

Write one, post it anywhere you like, and if it's worth using people will download it.

While the requested message would add a novel convenience to my my work, I can't say its absence would be cause for "anger", or really anything beyond the most mild annoyance, if even that. After building apps in a variety of languages without such a message for 20 years, I'm confident al870 can fin...

More to the point, why doesnt Rev make it clear in its documentation. A field IS a variable, it is not a constant or just text holder like a lable. Well, isnt it? Interesting idea. I'd never thought about it that way, that anything that wasn't fixed was a "variable". To be variable and to be *a* va...

That's an interesting idea, one I've not seen before. May I ask what other programming languages you've learned which may have contributed to this notion?

If I understand user606 correctly, all that's needed is the briefest introduction to the itemdelimiter, and a gentle reminder that whenever things may seem more complicated than that in Rev it's more often than not merely a perceptual issue. ;) One can store lists if things in variables or other con...
