DataGrid form versus table

I have successfully created Datagrid tables using an outside database. It uses tab-delimited information (actually, I modify the information once it reaches LiveCode to make it tab-delimited). Now, I am trying to format them using Datagrid forms. And it doesn't work. I don't know why... Once it work...

Re: File instability

Five steps forward...3 1/2 back.... This isn't a question - but just a status on how I solved the problem. I have learned some basic things. First, I was being driven crazy by formatting/field placement - until I finally figured out that the order that you put the instructions is critical. You need ...

Re: File instability

I'm missing something basic. I tried to start the whole application over again - new mainstack, new cards...the whole 9 yards. But the new stack is getting images from my old application - even though I made a new substack for resources and put an images file in it and loaded the images for the new ...

File instability

I am so frustrated. I have been building an app - starting with the Ticked Off application and modifying it. I got pretty far on it, saving backup copies so if I made a mistake, I could return to a previous good version. I have been extremely careful to purge LiveCode when going between the differen...

Visual effects failing - how to troubleshoot

I've been happily creating my app and suddenly the visual effect transitioning from card to card is failing. My backup works - the cards transition nicely, but then if I do ANYTHING to the home page card, the transitions for all the cards fail. It does reach the card, but the visual effect "push rig...

Re: selecting line from Datagrid - scrollbar interferes

It is a beautiful thing! I used

if word 1 of the target <> "scrollbar" then
launch url theDataC["Link Address"]
end if

and the scrollbar is no longer my enemy

Thanks

selecting line from Datagrid - scrollbar interferes

I want to select a line from a DataGrid and have it go to a url connected with that line. Everything's good - except my object script is based on OnMouseUp...so when I use the scrollbar to scroll down my DataGrid, on mouseUP, it takes the original line that the scrollbar started on and acts like it ...

Resizing images - setting cImageRatio

I have just figured out that the images on the TickedOff application automatically resize when the stack/card size changes because the images have three Custom properties: - cImageRatio, cPrimaryDimension and cStackRatio. In the short run, I am going to calculate the cStackRatio and manually put it ...

Re: dynamically change an image source

So I have been playing around and have learned a couple of things: 1) LiveCode has Find and Replace under Edit. I haven't used it yet, but expect that it will solve much of my frustration in updating multiple cards as I tweak the application. 2) If I bring in a replacement image that is not exactly ...

Re: dynamically change an image source

I imported an image (call this image1). Later, I modify the image. If I name the modified one the same name as the original (image1), the old image1 continues to appear on LiveCode.....(because I figure that LiveCode has saved that image on its system and doesn't look for any new ones on my computer...

Re: dynamically change an image source

YES, but each time I change the image on the image card by importing a new one, the ID number changes... and I have to go back and reference the new number on all the cards. I'm sure I'm doing it wrong, because it is very time consuming... Maybe I need to put a script on the images card to load the ...

Re: dynamically change an image source

I want to avoid changing images on multiple cards - so setting them dynamically seems like a great idea. But I am unsure how the images are stored. Do they have to be grabbed from the Internet (in which case the user would need to be connected) - or is there a way to include images when the app is c...

It works now... I added a scrollbar to the original one, and for some reason, it now works.

Re: Resizing field with scrollbar

This is very frustrating. I am modifying portions of the sample Ticked Off application. The original Ticked Off does not have a scrollbar and does not stay in a limited space, and I want to make those two changes. So, I figured out the space issue, but the scrollbar is driving me nuts. I redid the t...

Re: Pass

I have learned that pass just allows the variables to move forward..... so that wasn't my problem. It turns out that the button was part of a group. I had to ungroup it, make the changes to the button, and then regroup it.
