Data Grid Columns

Post by eworthington » Wed Jun 12, 2019 1:41 am

I have encountered what I think may be a bug, or it could also just be a behavioral nuance that I am not accustomed to as a Livecode tyro.

It involves creating column names with a datagrid, and I have linked to a video of the behavior.

At around 10 seconds, I enter the column name into the “Column name” field, and I then tab to “Column label” field. When I do that, the “Column name” field reverts to the default column name, so I have to double click on the column name in the “columns:” multiline text field to reload the correct value into the “Column name” field.

Version 9.5.0-dp-1 Build 15500

The video was too large to upload here.

Thank you.

This is correct. In my opinion it is a 'small' but annoying bug. I have noticed this as well.
Have had this in all LC 9.xx versions working with Windows 10.

Hi Ed,

welcome to the forum!

Well, LC 9.5.0 DP1 is a DEVELOPER Preview and surely has some glitches! 8)
If you like you can report this here:
Please try again with the latest STABLE version, which is 9.0.4 currently.

I agree that it is a small bug. I will go ahead and report just so that they have it on file.

Thank you,

I see this in all versions of LC as of LC7.
So it's not a new thing. Yes it involves some more clicking and sometimes re-entering the clomn name. could also do this programmatically when openeing the card where the DG is located, it then works flawless.
