You can start with a month or two at the monthly subscription price and get your app built. The finished app can be distributed forever regardless of when you end your subscription. You could start another monthly subscription if you decide your app needs an update, or if you feel your app is indee...

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

As Trevor noted, anyone running a business selling software will find that $499/yr is one of the smallest expense they have, certainly a bargain for having so much of their code for so many platforms delivered to them tested and ready to go. For those whose business model isn't sufficient to cover ...

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

NOW, what actually happened was that the " Community " version was TOO SUCCESSFUL, and people are NOT running like mad to buy the commercial version, as, for instance, that is not required for any sort of in-house development. Why should hobbyists be punished for this? 1. Make the Commercial versio...

Re: Recently we've been investing heavily in product develop

Or you can choose to buy a commercial version from us with a commercial widget. This makes much more sense. If the new functionality is based around commercial widgets, then this seems like a very fair way to differentiate between the versions and add value for your business customers, while still ...

Re: Using variables in mysql functions

I find using "merge" to create the sql is easier to follow when using variables and the '

Like so:

put merge("select sum(amount) from '[[tAccntName]]' where amount <> 0 and date >= '[[tStartDate]]' and date <= '[[tEndDate]]' and category = '[[tCategory]]'") into tSQL

Re: text alignment in controls.

I've noticed that the text alignment in controls such as the tabs, buttons are not centered. In fact they appear to be down towards the bottom. Is there anyway to correct this? I've played with the text formatting and have not been able to do so. Thank you. The issue with the Tab Panel Control is a...

This does not work correctly for negative numbers for example:

-116.79 returns -,116.79

Re: Select multiple folders?

Thanks, Terry. Seems like useful into to include with a feature request: http://quality.runrev.com/ Do you know the API calls for the other 90% who use Windows and Linux? I'm afraid not but I I'd be surprised if they did not exist. The LC programmers would know them, I'm sure. All the best Terry

Implement DataGrid in C/C++

A simple request but simple to implement?

Create a DataGrid that is not formed out of scripted objects but formed as part of the underlying system as per other controls.

This I am sure would increase the performance of the grid substantially.

All the best
