Hi Kathir, While it's possible to do this with Quartam Reports 1.0.5, it's a not-so-obvious workaround requiring the Professional Edition. In a nutshell, you have to script a data broker that will feed the detail data one line at a time, flagging the type of data that is displayed (a complete line o...

Do you just want to hide the player after the movies has ended while allowing the user to continue clicking around - or is your goal to prevent the user from doing anything until the movie has ended? Case 1. Just hide the player at the end of the movie: - handle the 'playStopped' message to hide the...

Hi Kathir, Try the 'grab' command instead of the 'drag' command: on mouseDown grab me end mouseDown Unfortunately, you can't constrain the end location of the grabbed control. If you want to do that, you'll have to script the mouse tracking yourself: local sTrackingFlag, sTrackingOffsets on mouseDow...

Hi Horst, Upon revisiting this problem, things do seem to act strange: - I created a new mainstack "mainie" - I added two substacks "subbie1" and "subbie2" - I went back to the mainstack and added a button on mouseUp -- first display the current situation for later reference answer the recentCards -...

Hi Horst, The only way to excluse cards from being added, is explicitly setting the global lockRecent property to true before going to the card. By default, this property is set to false, and it will automatically be reset to false when all running handlers are finished - so you can't set it once an...

In addition to Klaus' suggestions, check out the 'URL' keyword. Basically, it can be as easy as: on mouseUp ask file "Save as:" if it is empty then exit mouseUp put "binfile:" & it into tLocalPath put "ftp://user:password@example.net/dir/file.ext" into tRemotePath put URL tRemotePath into URL tLocal...

Hi Kai, There are two approaches: you either use Revolution's chunking abilities, or write a small function to fullfill your needs. Approach 1: Revolution chunks on mouseUp put " It's fun to be a lunatic! " into tOriginalText put word 1 to -1 of tOriginalText into tTtrimmedText answer tOriginalText ...

Hi Bidge,

Here's the installer builder that I've been using for my projects. It was built using Revolution and creates .MSI files for Windows and .DMG files for MacOSX.

Hi TR-i, Don't you mean 'libURLFTPUpload' and 'libURLFTPUploadFile' ? Regardless, it depends on the server and protocol. The fact that you get a 500 error indicates that you're attempting to upload files to an HTTP server. The URL library therefore assumes you're trying to upload the data or the fil...

Try base64 encoding

Hi Horst, One way to ensure nothing messes up the query is by encoding the image data in a safe format on the way to the database, and decoding it when ypu get it back out of the database. The easiest solution for that is undoubtedly 'base64' encoding. See the 'base64encode' and 'base64decode' funct...

Hi Bernard, The message sending system is meant to complement the DOM model (where an entire tree is loaded into memory) with the SAX model (where you get a stream of messages and do what you need with the subset of data that you get). The DOM model is memory-intensive, whereas the SAX model allows ...
