Re: Graphic in scrolling list field disappears

The reason the img dissapears is because the character that it is linked to leaves the viewport, so the engine stops rendering it. The same happens with groups, for the same reason. If you want to get around this problem, you can us a cheater method. Use a separate scroll bar, mask off your viewing ...

Re: DataGrid V8 question

With 8 dp3 I can see the required properties to work with the datagrid. 2nd icon (at the top) datagrid, then for me an error pops up that I ignore (for now), and THEN wait.... about 5 seconds.. And then resize the inspector and voila' there they are. Simple *cough* After the first time things work w...

Re: Recently we've been investing ....[SOLVED?]

Going back to licensing fees actually feels like a step back in time to me. I used to work at a college with a vax, a DEC mini, etc. VMS and Ultrix were both "licensed" (If I recall correctly) as were different chunks of the system software such as the networking stack. Our sister college supplied a...

I'm not sure exactly what you're going for, but heres a quick sample that might give you some ideas. local sHilited -- used to keep track of the background color of the field (I used a label field with opaque set to true) on mousedown if sHilited is empty then put false into sHilited --initialize hi...

Re: Controlling another app

They're complex, but you might click "sample stacks" on the livecode bar, then search for itunes. There will be 2 stacks, one is from lazy river software (Thomas McGrath) its the itunes library suite. If I recall correctly, it controls itunes using vbscript on windows, and applescript on mac. I'm su...

Re: Recently we've been investing ....[SOLVED?]

@dave.. Think of it this way.. You lease a car. Buying is not an option. You want to upgrade some stuff. Nice steering wheel cover, floor mats, whatever <aka add features by paying for 3rd party extensions>. Your only option to get that upgrade is to buy it, but if you do, true you own the that nift...

Re: New Delete Feature

Wow, scary. And its not new as of 5.5.5.

And yep. 3 buttons on the card, executing delete button 1 and button 1 and button 1 from the msg box kills all 3. Scary, but nifty too.

Hey! My blindness has lifted! I'd make one small additional recommendation. I've just not been seeing that message, entirely my fault. I have been clicking on the "3rd party" on the left which shows 2 products right now. WOuld it be difficult to add a similar note to that page too? Or a "legacy prod...

Re: Recently we've been investing ....[SOLVED?]

The website has improved a little. I can actually get to 2 of the products I own. The rest (academies, and a few more extensions) are still lost in the nether, but i'm glad to see some changes going on.

Re: Finding a PCs IP address using computer name but using a

Ah k. Thats the answer then. If you don't have your mac set up to do netbios name resolution, it won't work. Looks like you'll still want to stick with the other method unless you can figure out how to get resolution working. (Its been too long, i'm not sure how) the smbutil method should work fine ...

Re: Finding a PCs IP address using computer name but using a

on a mac its spelled out in full: traceroute

So you'll still have to separate the 2 shell calls.

Re: Finding a PCs IP address using computer name but using a

The purpose is to resolve the local ip of a system on the network. In this case using the netbios name of a windows machine, and getting its ip from a mac. Will tracert do this? I'll have to add it to my toolbox if so!

Re: Finding a PCs IP address using computer name but using a

Did you try get shell("smbutil lookup computername")
?

Don't know if it will work, but curious to know if it does.

Re: Finding a PCs IP address using computer name but using a

if I recall correctly, for this to work on a mac you have to change some netbios stuff in the settings. (since windows networks don't use a standard dns type of server thing) Basically, you'd go into network settings, advanced, go to the WINS tab and set things up so that you're in the right workgro...
