Need help for document management app

Post by tal » Wed Apr 19, 2017 12:56 pm

Hi everyone,

I was a user of livecode a long time ago, and now i am a little lost, so i need your help to come back.

I need to developp a "simple" application, it will search a file on the computer ( folders) containing a key word , show the files corresponding on a list, and then if we double click a the file on the list, it will open it.

Can you show me how to proceed, thanks,

Tal

Hi.

Maybe "the files" function can help? You must define the defaultFolder, as that is where that function looks, but it will return all the files in that folder, and then you can work with the names.

Hi Tal,

check this one:

This has been written BEFORE Livecode provided the new -> files("of/folder/xyz")
function, so it may need some adjustments.


Best
