Re: Making a Standalone's Material Savable.

Re: Making a Standalone's Material Savable.

Yes, now I see how I used to do this. I used a splash screen and a datastack. Thanks. It's working now!

Re: Making a Standalone's Material Savable.

You're right. I've discovered that it doesn't work after all. I thought it did. I'm not sure what to do. I have a stack where you do your work and a data stack that has the data. How can I make that data stack a file that can be saved? The idea is for people to write in material to be studied later ...

Re: Making a Standalone's Material Savable.

I'm posting a reply to my own question. I just looked; it's not in the standalone settings.

I put this is the stack script:

on closestack
answer "Save Changes?" with "Yes" or "No"
if it is "yes" then save stack "datastack"
end closestack

Never mind!

Thanks anyway,

Tom

Making a Standalone's Material Savable.

I'm not a beginner at all but this is so basic that I thought I'd ask here. I've completely forgotten how to make my changes in a standalone SAVABLE. I'm making a little flash card program for language students. They will put in their words and save them. The standalone settings have to allow this. ...

Re: Corrupted Stack!

I'm replying to my own post. I opened the file with the tilde and NOW it opens from within RunRev. This may be solved. Thanks for reading my frantic post. I feel better now, friends.

Corrupted Stack!

I try to open my stack and it says it's corrupted and to look for a back-up with a tilde ~. I find that file, but it's corrupted too. Help. What can I do?

Re: Want to Make an Index Maker

I see. I guess I'll have to learn how to use applescript.

Want to Make an Index Maker

The inexpensive word processor for Mac, Pages 09 has a table of contents creator but doesn't make an index. I thought it would be fun to make a program that would make an index. I remember in HyperCard, you could open Word Files and things. I'm guessing it might be possible to get RunRev to open a P...

Re: LOCKSCREEN

This is a great improvement. I get a tiny flash, but it's the same screen; not the other stack. I think it's my scripting which is like something out of a drug addict's nightmare that makes it go the slightest bit wrong. I don't know why this would work, but you know I guess I have LEFT the stack be...

LOCKSCREEN

I have a script that sends a mouseup to a button on a card in another stack. Then it runs around the stack gathering up data. I push the card and pop the card. I have put "set lockscreen to true" at the beginning and "set lockscreen to false" at the end of the script, but I still see one flash of th...

Making a Graph

I have a bird listing program I've written in Revolution. In HyperCard, there used to be stacks to share with cool graphing and things like that. I've made a graphing system on my own, but it took such a lot of time, and I can't remember what I was doing with that script and I can't face going in th...

Re: Filter by Item

Klaus,
Thanks so much. It's like greased lightning! Why hasn't anyone told me this? My repeat takes AGES -- I mean ages! Yours is instantaneous with 20,000 lines. I have some scripts that make me wait that I can fix now.

¡Mil gracias!

Re: Filter by Item

Thanks for the help. I can't get that script to do anything. I guess it's my inexperience. It's just a repeat, isn't it? I tried this: on mouseUp set cursor to watch put 1 into lineo put card fld sortfield into yourtext repeat with i = 1 to the number of lines of yourtext put item 1 to 3 of line lin...
