Re: [SOLVED] Something is not right with my data

Hi, I have learn't a few things the hard way over the years. 1. If your program doesn't make sense it's your DATA. 2. Try switching it on and off again. 3. It Work better when you plug it in. 4. Murphy's law - "If it can go wrong it will" 5. "If it ain't broke don't fix it." 6. No Programs are fool ...

Re: A stack "revCursors" is already in memory

Hi All, I used to get it every so often but I think I worked out what it was but can't remember if it happened every time. It seemed to happen 99% of the time when I "SAVED" with a different name (for safety/backup/milestone) and then decide to create a standalone straight after. What I always do no...

Goto xojo.com and b4x.com these sites are how it should be done. https://www.xojo.com/ https://www.b4x.com/ B4x has now gone opensource for...

Re: Passing mouse clicks up the object heirarchy

I belong to no political party, hold the same respect for all churches, and even treat left-handed people as I would right-handed. But on this most important matter I take my stand: messages fall downward. Yes, this is the hill I'm prepared to die on. :) I stand with Terry and Richard on the Hill -...

Re: How to deal with database files for an app?

simple answer - and not enough storage place or time is not an excuse. 1, You backup daily or whenver the time to renter data is much more than the time to backup 2. you backup at the end of the week (or only at the end of the week) 3. then a monthly backup at the end of the year you save all the mo...

Re: Getting Snakey

Hi Richmond, The canonical use case (for me at least) for the upper function is when you ask for an entry and you have allowed upper and lowercase. So the user enters "Fred" for his name. If you want to test for a fred (you don't allow freds to use your program), you can test for "Fred" or "FRed" or...

Re: revCursors magically attaches to my stacks

Hi Richard, I would'nt say its 100% foolproof because if memory serves, whenever I "savesas" to change the name (not the first time) and then I did a compile more often than not the problem surfaced - so I make sure if I do a "saveas" I exit LC and come back in - which is why I went for over a year ...

Re: Replace LiveCode Script with JavaScript, forever

Hi I would put to a crowd fund - even a monthly payment for Thierry to do as he has done with Perl and Lua. Even if it took a year because of other commitments we know it would be done. While Thierry is at it I bet he could EASILY crowdfund a Python or Javascript "external" - I believe it's seamless...

Hi, You beat me to it ... I just created an account for myself and recorded me setting up a mysql database - got to the part called "remote sql" - I.e. access from an external computer/server - and we need a premium account.
