Hi Everyone,

Thanks,

Search Array

Hi Runrev, A SearchArray function that returns the full array reference of a match. like put SearchArray("apple") returns MyArrayName["Fruits"]["Red Ones"][1]["name of fruit"] or multiple lines, 1 reference on each line. I think I will build a function like this anyways..... but if it was built into...

Re: Orient DB driver

Thats a good point ...I forgot about the db layer rewrite. Hmmm. There is no way I could write that driver... would have to hire someone, which we are open to doing. Thanks for your answer. Will just out that one back on the backburner for now.

Orient DB driver

Hi Everyone, In the next few months I will be initiating steps for some very specific engine contributions. The first being an Orient DB driver. Is anyone else doing that at the moment? Does anyone know anyone who has wanted to do this ? How do I go about finding someone who can build a such a drive...

Re: wait 0 with messages

The "wait 0" trick was arrived at as a workaround for that Mac problem, and apparently may be needed due to recent changes in the Win APIs as well. I learnt very early on with RunRev on Windows (2.8 and XP onwards) that a wait with messages was required in a tight loop in order to avoid locking int...

Re: wait 0 with messages

Its true, it becomes a bottleneck to try and maintain responsiveness, thats why I wanted to address it and find out if there is another way of ensuring that users don't try to close the non-responsive window. Its not good for a user's experience when the window goes non-responsive. (and says "not re...

Re: wait 0 with messages

its a feature that the windows process locks up during tight loops? the bug report was not about the merits of waiting 0 but rather a non responsive window. ...... waiting 0 with messages does add time to how long a handle takes, so for whatever reason its not really waiting 0. I use milliseconds to...

Re: wait 0 with messages

Now that I think about it ..... That is how it was explained before, having to do with exactly what you said the redraw mechanism..... I do lock my screen, but it still displays "not responding" in the window..... I will file this ..... because maybe it would be easy to add a routine that prevents t...

Re: wait 0 with messages

Re: wait 0 with messages

Excellent.......I have to process a lot of things in tight loops, so I am always running into using this, and using it without knowing why i am using it makes me crazy. Thanks Richard.

Will check out those builds and see if indeed it still happens.

Cheers

wait 0 with messages

Hi Livecoders, Can someone please help me understand why I have to use "wait 0 with messages" to stop the engine from locking up the UI? when doing a tight repeat loop....... even when I lock the screen it still ends up " non responsive" until the handler finishes. I just don't get why the engine is...

Get available memory?

Hi everyone,

Wondering what you guys thought the best way was to get the available memory from the OS? Windows is my dev platform.

Cheers,

Tom
