Re: Onload events or openCard

It works now. I think one of the problems I have had is that I've been using multiple versions of my application with the same names - without using "File" - "Close and remove from memory". Now that I am being more careful to only have one open at a time, I am having fewer problems.

Thanks

Onload events or openCard

Does LiveCode have any onload events? I want to load an image from the Internet but I don't want to connect it to a button. I want it to automatically load. I looked at OpenCard - but either that isn't the solution or I am putting OpenCard in the wrong spot - because it doesn't work. I was trying a ...

Re: loading data into DataGrid

I DID IT! I don't know why, but I changed the line: put true into firstLineAreNames and switched it to false ALL THE DATA APPEARED! - including the first line that I had set up as titles. So, I manually named the columns and eliminated the titles in my data and it absolutely works. I would be nice t...

Re: loading data into DataGrid

The second column is found after "usetab" So - for this record http://build.export.gov/main/mrktresearch/eg_main_018208usetabCustom market research services from Export.Gov (this is truncating the middle part of the record - which is ...mrktresearch/eg_main_018208usetabCustom....) I have LiveCode re...

Re: loading data into DataGrid

OK - I'm getting a lot closer. LiveCode has loaded the columns correctly, loaded information for the first column, but the second column is blank. Here is my code: (I am bringing in an html file so I have to switch <br> with return and usetab with tab so that it can be read as tab delimited informat...

Re: Saving as a RevLet

To close this out - I have finally figured out that my ISP did not have my new IP address on the list of approved IP addresses- so the firewall was blocking it. All the code I was using on LiveCode's end was correct. But I realized that contacting the database directly was not a good idea because of...

Re: Saving as a RevLet

I'm back to trying to connect to an external database. Let's start at the basics. I want to get data from my website database through an ODBC connection. Does LiveCode need to be installed on my server? My webhost seems to think that LiveCode has to be installed. If it does, is there a server versio...

Re: Saving as a RevLet

Hi. I'm back. The IRS has been paid. Now...back to getting data from my SQL database. I couldn't figure out how to implement your ideas - so I searched around and found the code below - that seems to get database info without needing a RevLet ---or anything special---. I get to the point where the a...

Re: Saving as a RevLet

I'm afraid I've flunked. I tried using your idea - but I don't have anything labeled queryresults. It's just picking up words on bob.cfm So, I thought I might set up a second field (sample2) and have it get the htmltext from the first one (sample) set the htmltext of field "sample2" to field "sample...

Re: Saving as a RevLet

OK... I have the results of a query coming into LiveCode (pretty amazing...) I am using Cold Fusion to access the database. Right now, I am looping over states, so it appears on LiveCode as AL<br>AZ<br>AR<br> (in cold Fusion it appears properly formatted) - so LiveCode isn't processing the html form...

Re: Saving as a RevLet

thanks for your prompt reply. Unfortunately, your solution just gives me the source code. I just want the the results of a query that I've run. Let's start again. I have an existing database (SQL - not msSQL) and I want to get information from it to LiveCode - (the results are a loop - so I need all...
