Hi,

Any help for the ".1" in the picker???

Or at least how i can 'round' or 'trunc' this number in the 'mobile'???

Regards.

Hi,

I am wondering if this is one error of LC 7...:-(

I am not sure if it is mine as i am only putting the value in on field...

But even if it is one error of LC7, it should not work the trunc or round???

Regards.

There is another approach: roll your own spinner. There are at least three live code libraries I have seen to do this for you: WheeLib (in the run rev store), which is a commercial product and then Bernd built two of them. WheeLib is, frankly, not working on LiveCode 7. Don't bother with it. Bernd's has one aimed at iOS 6 and earlier, and one aimed at iOS 7 and later. One is licensed under the GPL, so cannot be used in commercial products without his permission (I think its the iOS 7 one). I've attached them to this post in zip format. I myself got them from this forum somewhere, so I'm pretty sure it's ok.

What I would do is investigate them and then build your own "date picker" from them. It's just a custom control, so doesn't tie into iOS at all, and you don't have to ask on an alert or anything. You can PM bernd or something if you need help; but bernd is a fantastic coder, so I know these work. Built one and it looks just like the system versions.

Good luck!
