List of keywords

Post by Redlance305 » Sun Nov 21, 2010 4:54 pm

While reading "Working with Data Grids" a few reserve(d) keywords were noted:

uSumOfColumn
dgProps
deIndex
dgDataOfIndex
dgHilitedIndex
and more importantly
dgDataOfLine

Where can we get a list of these with their descriptions/definition? ... Yes I can figure out what it does without a manual, but how do I know they exist. How many unknown features am I missing, something I might need!

IE: Right now I can not get dgNumberOfLines to work in iOS, but it works fine as a desktop program. dgNumberOfLines does not return a number in iOS!

Currently I'm using a datagrid to store a list of names and addresses, user will not edit. Using repeat to step through the records looking for a specific mail code (each site has their own). Crude but it works, as a Desktop Program but not as an iOS app.

My first iOS app that has usefulness in the workplace!

David,

You can find the major part of the datagrid API here:
http://lessons.runrev.com/spaces/lesson ... a-Grid-API

You can also download the DataGrid guide here:
http://lessons.runrev.com/spaces/lesson ... tagrid/pdf

Note that the uSumOfColumn is not a property of the API. That is a property added in a datagrid group as way to perform a sum in a datagrid. This property is relative to a lesson available here:
http://lessons.runrev.com/spaces/lesson ... r-Columns-

Some properties are not referenced in the documentation like:
- the properties for managing drag & drop: dgDragReorderData, dgTrackDragReorder, etc
- recent additions: dgClickLine, dgClickIndex, dgClickedInDataView
- and some others like dgScrollbarDragH, dgScrollbarDragV, etc

However the documentation is largely sufficient for the most common usages.

For now I'm not an iOS user so I have no experience with the dgNumberOfLines in it.
Check this lesson could eventually helps:
