Brandon, My understanding has always been (and I just tested it, and confirmed) that if you hide a control you shouldn't be able to click on it. How exactly were you hiding these particular controls? What did you click in the properties box? This is for my benefit if you don't mind, as I realize you...

Brandon, I don't believe you can actually turn off the mouse, but you can block any clicks from reaching particular objects by placing a large button on top of those objects. Once you've dragged the new button and resized it over your to-be-hidden objects, then in the properties of the new button do...

Hi mtecedor, Couple of things. First, it looks like you're trying to write one long script that I'm guessing you placed in the stack. Generally you place snippets of code into the objects that use them, that way you don't have to check by saying "if theButton is 1 ..." You can simply put this into t...

Seems to work fine. A setting for a default location would be nice, so you don't have to browse through folders each time. But otherwise, seems to work quite well.

Thanks Klaus and SparkOut. Binary is a bit beyond me at the moment, so I'll start with the aliasReference() function. That sounds exactly like what I was looking for. Then I can organize file names according to the extension which gets me most of what I was asking for. Thanks very much. Mark

Recent files by type

Hi all, I want to create a program that keeps track of which applications I open during the day (e.g., Word, Excel, Chrome, RunRev, iTunes, etc.), the number of minutes each application was open, and possibly how many different files were opened by that application. I use Vista, and realize that the...

Thanks Bernd! It's amazing how much I learn from asking a question, then proceding to spend 2 additional hours trying to answer that question myself, and then getting feedback. If I hadn't spent the time, I probably wouldn't have understood your code, but now that I did, I think using a simple "Reve...

Okay, I think I've got it. I put all the points into a list called "tPointList" and then using a repeat loop I move to each point (i.e., each line in tPointList). To go backwards I just read the list starting at the last line of the tPointList and work my way down to line 1. on mouseUp put the point...

move "to the points of" a graphic BACKWARDS

Is there a simple way to get a graphic (e.g., rectangle) to move "to the points" of another graphic (e.g., a line) in the OPPOSITE direction? Here's the basic code: move graphic "box" to the points of graphic "line" in 1 seconds Just like you can make a repeat loop go backwards (100 down to 0), is t...

Plugin and graphics problems with revMedia web ALPHA

I have a revlet (originally created in Studio, but saved as a revlet in Media 4.0) to work well on both Chrome and Firefox, but not on IE. In IE it says downloading plugin... and then just hangs. I don't have any other browsers open. Thoughts? Also, even in Chrome and Firefox the splash page for thi...

Yup, the Label Field is generally the way to go for text, although it's surprising the different ways you can get text to show up. But, this is the most straight forward.

SparkOut,
That worked. I got 20001 to 20040 all good. They came in at about 2 submissions per second. I'll try the script tonight and see how things go. I appreciate your help.

No problem. My "CalculateTotal" handler would be the sort of code you could put into Ken's button (although he may be summing along as he goes, whereas I wait till the end and then add 'em up). I'm not quite sure what Ken is referring to when he says "assigns a group number to each question's answer...

Oh, absolutely. Submit whatever you like. All the data in there is completely fake. I've got no cookie handling -- well, I don't think so. I'm not doing anything with cookies in my rev code -- is that what you mean? As for the HttpHeader -- I wouldn't know what that was if it bit me on the nose! So,...
