Re: scrollbar and scaling

Hi SparkOut, I've managed to solve my problem by just hardcoding the position of the last object. Its just easier, especially as I figure the object shouldn't move on the card and I already know whats the last object. I do have another question relating to scrollbar and this title fits this problem ...

Re: scrollbar and scaling

Ah I think I can do this by finding the bottom of the object that is the furthest down on a page.
Does anyone know the relevant command I can use to find the furthest object on a card or am I going to have to loop through all the objects to find the one thats the furthest down?

Thanks

Re: datagrid updating a row

Thanks Guys,

@sritcp putting quotes around the command didn't work. However, that sample file you posted bangkok was excellent - it showed me how to deal with and manipulate data in the datagrid.

datagrid updating a row

Hi Guys, Need some advice. I've got a datagrid (table) called dg_charge_rate and I'd like to update a specific row. Previously the way handled it was by deleting the row and then adding a new row with the old ID. The drawback of this method was that the new item would be added to the end of the row....
