Re: Putting a text file into variable with URL method not working

Hello Thanks to those who replied. I hope I did not waste too much of your time. I found the problem: there is a hidden character at the beginning of each line of the list field. Modifying the script to delete it fixed the problem. I don't know what the character is or how it got there but will inve...

Re: Sharing and synchronziing backgrounds among substacks

Hi Craig Thank you for your reply. Yes, the groups are basically just mirrors or empty vessels, a browser widget being the focus of the group. The only difference among substacks will be changes in the loaded PDF file and its associated properties (number of pages) when the user makes a selection fr...

Sharing and synchronziing backgrounds among substacks

Hello As I understand background groups, a particular background group can be placed on any card within a stack with the "place" command or through the "object > place group" menu command. Changes in the group will be automatically reflected in every instance. But what if your application has many s...

Re: Getting a Number Range from 1 to X

Thank you Craig and Xero Craig, your script worked. I did not think of the command "put temp into butn" as creating the list of numbers in the button, and I overlooked the use of the chunk line in the repeat loop. Xero, to answer your question, I am using the PDF browser that comes with the Business...

Getting a Number Range from 1 to X

Hello After my script gets the page number of the last page of a PDF, I need a script that (1) generates the range of numbers from 1 to the total number of pages and then (2) sets the text of an menu button to those numbers as a list, e.g., if the total pages of an PDF is 3, the script sets the text...

Re: Meaning and use of \> or \*

Meaning and use of \> or \*

Hi In the LC 9.5 User Guide (7/30/19, p. 111), example code is given on the use of implicit parameters. In it are what seems to be two logical operators: \> and \*. But I do not find them listed or explained in the section of the guide on logical operators (p. 124). The character "\" is a mystery to...

Re: Size and Position Pane - Unstoppable Incrementation

Thanks for your reply. No, checking the Resizable checkbox or trying Ctrl+. (I’m using Win 10) has no effect. Running LC 9.5 but I encountered this behavior in 7 and 8 too.
