Bernd,

I'm glad to have the demo stack working so well on my Mac mini! The drag and drop into the field "fClip" is flawless.

In the prototype app, I'd love to see the dropped text wind up in the first empty row of column 1 of a new datagrid. I created a group called "fClip," and tried to drag and drop text from the revBrowser pane into it.

So far, there's been now luck in getting the datagrid to accept the dragdrop text.

Is there a card or hidden substack/object script that I need to change from field fClip to group fClip?

And do I need to set column1 properties in some way to accept html text that is released onto it via dragdrop?

I've searched the forum and the user guide without success. Many thanks for any further pointers- and all your patience with my early learning curve.

Best,

Mark

Hi Mark,

I am not really familiar with the Datagrid. Did some testing but not more, pretty powerful but also confusing at times.

have a look at this thread
http://forums.runrev.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=17333

If you want get aquainted with the datagrid look at the lession section at Runrev.com > Datagrid

and in RevOnline:
http://revonline2.runrev.com/stack/493/ ... o-datagrid

maybe someone more familiar with the datagrid will chime in.

regards
Bernd

Bernd,

Thanks yet again - those links do indeed hit the spot with functions I've been looking to understand!

Best,

Mark

Just a small update for the people without a magic crystal ball or chicken sacrifice rituals. revBrowserSnapshot is working but only if the image size is the same size as the browser size and you use the revBrowserOpen method. Please note that this does not work yet with revBrowserOpenCef.

So create a new button and add following code to the script of the button:

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
   local tBrowserId
   local tSnapshot
   
   create invisible image "testImage"
   set the rect of image "testImage" to the rect of graphic "rctBrowserBg"
   
   put revBrowserOpenCef(the windowId of this stack, "http://www.cnn.com") into tBrowserId
   if tBrowserId is not an integer then
      answer "Failed to open browser"
   end if
   revBrowserSet tBrowserId, "visible", false
   revBrowserSet tBrowserId, "rect", the rect of graphic "rctBrowserBg"
end mouseUp
After that add following in to your card script (the message sent by the browser is going to the card and not the button):

Code: Select all

on browserDocumentComplete pBrowserId
   local tSnapshot
   
   revBrowserSnapshot pBrowserId, "tSnapshot"
   set the imageData of image "testImage" to tSnapshot
   show image "testImage"
end browserDocumentComplete
