Re: Database Basic Questions: New Records in Access/ODBC

Thanks, Klaus, but what about the "Database Query Builder"? What is that and where can I find out more about it?

Database Basic Questions: New Records in Access/ODBC

I'm brand new to databases and am having a hard time finding information. I'm using Microsoft Access with an ODBC connection. I've figured out how to connect to the database using revOpenDatabase, how to retrieve column names using revDatabaseColumnNames, and how to get the Access records to display...

Re: Does minimizeBox work for Mac OS X?

Yes, I'm afraid the function of those BBCode tags eludes me--if that's what they are. It looks like I just screwed up the URL, though. It was just a screenshot showing the uncolored--and, by the way, definitely unfunctional minimize button. I'll check stack decorations, but if it works in Windows, i...

Does minimizeBox work for Mac OS X?

The minimizeBox property of my stack is set to true, but in the OS X standalone, the yellow minimize button is there but isn't colored and doesn't work. The button does work in the Windows standalone. Ideas?

Re: revDataGridLibrary in standalone with Valentina4 DB Supp

No. It's a button that does that. It didn't do it before I moved it from the Mac to the PC. Another weird thing happened at first: I couldn't select the controls on the card with the browse tool. I quit and reopened, and that started working. Maybe this other thing will go away, too.

Re: revDataGridLibrary in standalone with Valentina4 DB Supp

I finally got the DataGrid working in the Windows IDE. The last hurdle: The DataGrid font size was set to something giant, so I wasn't seeing anything! It's always something. One last question (for the day): I just copied my Mac IDE file over to my PC. Is that bad? Should I create from scratch on th...

Re: revDataGridLibrary in standalone with Valentina4 DB Supp

Well some good news: I was ALSO wrong about not having the license to run the IDE on Windows, too. I just downloaded it. That should make my Windows development quite a bit easier! I deleted that @ because it looked like a typo: Later in the script there's this: put revDatabaseColumnNamed(pCursor, t...

Re: revDataGridLibrary in standalone with Valentina4 DB Supp

Well, I think I'm wrong about needing to manually select the other database stuff as I described in my last post. I decided to try just using the "Search for required inclusions when saving the standalone application" option, and it seems to have included all the database stuff I need--more files th...

Re: revDataGridLibrary in standalone with Valentina4 DB Supp

I don't think that'll work in my situation, Klaus, which is the same situation as the original post by JLGDBMD: The tutorial instructions (linked in my earlier post) seem to indicate that IF you select Standalone Application Settings --> General tab --> Inclusions --> "Search for required inclusions...

Re: revDataGridLibrary in standalone with Valentina4 DB Supp

I have the exact same question and would like to cancel JLGDBMD's "never mind": I need to include the revDataGridLibrary in the standalone, but I'm already doing the "Select inclusions for the standalone application" option because I also need the Database library and Database Support (ODBC), so the...

How do I save printerSettings?

I understand that printerSettings is something called an opaque binary file that I can only set or get in its entirety, but I don't understand how to save it because I don't know what kind of file to save it as. I imagine the file type may be different for Windows and for OS X. From the LiveCode Dic...

Re: Click, Pause, Click Again to Edit a Line in a Field?

Thanks. One of the things I'll have to take into account is guarding against deletion of the line or of multiple lines while listBehavior is temporarily suspended. I'm surprised LiveCode doesn't include a built-in behavior or property to mimic the way Windows Explorer and Finder lists work since I i...

Re: Controlling Printers and Scanners

Wow. Thanks for taking the time to write such a thoughtful and helpful reply, sturgis. I'll give your suggestions a try. I'm just a hobbyist, too.

Re: Controlling Printers and Scanners

Thanks, Sturgis. I'm NOT on Windows, though. The app I intend to write will be run on a Windows machine, but I only have the Mac OS X development rights with deployment rights to Mac and Windows. Am I screwed? Thanks again for your reply.

Click, Pause, Click Again to Edit a Line in a Field?

In a field with listBehavior = true, I'm trying to figure out how to make the field's lines behave the way items in Windows Explorer or Mac's Finder do: If I click a line, pause, and click again, the text in that line becomes editable and is selected. Something Completely Different: The way this for...
