Re: Printed Dictionary Book Bundle

Received mine yesterday.

I observed some formatting problems; linefeed halfway a sentence; no linefeed when one is necessary (See mobileControlSet for example).
Final proof-editing fatigue, I guess!

Re: Very Hard to learn for beginner

Hi, I have to agree with the big red warning. Datagrids assume a certain level of experience. But for some strange reason every other newbie unavoidably starts with them. I don't know why...... Anything most anyone wants to make involves a table, and LC doesn't have a good alternative to Datagrid (...

Re: Very Hard to learn for beginner

The "problem" with your initial posts was their tone rather than their content. If "tone" is the problem, isn't the appropriate response trying to tone it down rather than escalate it? Just wondering. The inference of tone or attitude on the basis of written words is fraught with danger in situatio...

Re: Populating Datagrid (Form) with Results of Search of SQL

Hi Monty:

Could you reproduce your actual FillinData code (where you fill in the data for each of the six fields)?

Re: List of combinations

My suggestion would be to i) get the permutations first (straightforward using repeat loops); then ii) get the combinations by removing the ordered variants of the same combination. E.g., we have k! permutations for the combination 1,2,3; namely, 1,2,3 1,3,2 2,1,3 2,3,1 3,1,2 3,2,1 It should be easy...

Re: How can I edit a field in an arbitrary row in a DataGrid

In your code ..... put "quantity" into colName put the result into lineNo -- the result contains the index of the new row send "EditCellOfIndex colName lineNo" to group bomGrid on card "inventoryItem" of stack "inventory" ......... The 'send' command above will send "colName" and "lineNo" as the arg...

Video player is double size in edit mode

I am using LC 8.1.0 on Mac. My stack size is 1024 x 768 (iPad nominal). I have a video player object set to 1024 x 768 (without controller; slightly taller with controller). It is connected to a video file that is 1024 x768. In Run mode, the player fills the stack at 1024 x 768 (as it should). In Ed...

Re: How to access the "comment" property of a file?

Thank you so much, Hermann!
I apologize for the delay in acknowledging your post.
I was out of circulation for a while.
Just today I was able to run your code and check it out. Just what I needed!

Re: How to access the "comment" property of a file?

Hi Klaus:

Thank you so much!
Your code worked (as it always does!).

Now, how would I save an edited "comment" back into the file data?

Thanks,
Sri

How to access the "comment" property of a file?

I need to access the "comment" field of a file from within LC. (This is the field that is displayed when you hit Command-I to display the information panel of a file -- where you can type in descriptive information). Is there a simple way to read in / write out to this file property? I know very lit...

Re: Better site

Nothing prevents the community from coming up with its own (unofficial) LiveCode website. (LiveCodeCommunity.org, LearnLiveCode.com, LiveCodeIsGreat.com) It could be a responsive website built with LiveCode! It can link, where necessary, to the relevant pages of the mothership website.

I have said this before elsewhere, but it bears repetition.

My suggestion is i) Make these fre...
