Re: Better site

No no no. The current learning material only covers the basics. One task, one quick answer. It does not offer "best practices" in designing your application and making sure it is extendable and maintainable. Bad coding practices are easy to develop in LiveCode, maybe more so because all the shouting...

Re: matchtext and replacetext regex parts not working as exp

Regex is severly limited in LiveCode and needs improving. Kind of sad for a language so text friendly. And if they cant do it themselfs they need to contact Thierry ;

Re: datagrid visible columns

woops... column visibility it is. Thanks! Makes all the difference! edit: hmm it does not improve things much, a little slower even (guess to do with that it not checks if a column really needs a change of visibility (current state could already be what the new setting is).. little bug and not looki...

datagrid visible columns

Is it possible to set the visible columns of a datagrid 'at once' instead of looping through each column and setting dgColumnIsVisible... thats slow (btw that property doesnt even check if the setting set is the same as the current setting, so causes unnecessary delays... thats why I check it myself...

Re: SQLite FTS 5 Full Text Search

Ie FTS5 fixes this query:

SELECT * FROM docs WHERE docs MATCH 'title:"windows problems"'

With FTS4 this is not possible.. It will search for windows and somewhere else problems, not the exact "windows problems".

SQLite FTS 5 Full Text Search

LiveCode folks... please enable FTS5 in your distribution. FTS4 is already available, but FTS5 has some welcome additions.
O... and the datagrid in LC8 is slower as LC7 with many columns..

shell 64 bit command

Anyone who had the same problem as me... trying to execute 64 bit command with the shell command (it will not do this, since shell uses a 32 bit cmd and Windows redirect calls to commands behind the screens to the 32 bit parts of the OS)... Solution is to run shell("c:\windows\sysnative\cmd.exe /c "...

Re: datagrid checkbox for hiliting lines

Ah setting auto hilite of the datagrid to false does wonders, but you will loose default click/ctrl/shift functionality (which the checkboxes replaces). Checkboxes are more user friendly. Would be nice if there was an option to use both options.

datagrid checkbox for hiliting lines

Is it possible to let a checkbox in a column reflect the selected status of a row?
In a way to give another way to select multiple rows (instead of holding CTRL and clicking)...
I have a checkbox in a column, but the line selection is already reset when code in the mouseUp event executes.
