Re: Setting the linktext of linked text in a field

To Klaus Thank you for your reply. I executed your suggested script and the text "OK" was printed in the field "test." I am running LC 8.1.1. on a WIndows 10 platform. The funny thing is, I ran the same program on my office computer, which runs WIndows 7, and to my surprise the correct htmltext was ...

Thank you for your replies. Here is the unstated code that follows the code stated above. put the htmltext of fld 1 into URL ("file:"&gPath&"guides"&"/"&tTopic&".txt") Don't yet know where the change occurs.

Re: Problem in Querying SQLite Database

Thanks, SparkOut, for your response. When I check the contents of tQuery, I get (see image at bottom): capture1.PNG So, it looks as though the tSubject variable was populated correctly, but, as you suggest, the selectedtext has an invisible something extra. Following your suggestion, I modified the ...

Re: Problem in Querying SQLite Database

Thanks, Bangkok, for your response. I already tried the Answer test, and both tSubject & tInfo still return empty. When I omit the WHERE clause, yes, the contents of the entire cleDetails table populates the tInfo variable, so the problem obviously lies in "WHERE subject = '"&tSubject&"'. I think I ...

Problem in Querying SQLite Database

Hello For some reason the following code, which appears correct to my newbie brain, does not work. The mouseup handler belongs to a locked text field with list behavior. There is a connection to the SQLite database that has the table "cleDetails" and the variable tSubject is correctly populated with...

Re: Updating a MySQL Database after Text Fields are Changed

Thank you, bangkok and AxWald, for your replies. The tID variable was populated earlier in the same handler, so I assume that it need not be put in the loop. The problem seems be with the use of quotes around the field name. Removing both enclosing single and double quotes around the tField[x] array...

Re: INSTRUCTIONS:How to setup LiveCode Server on Windows 7 Guide

Checked my LiveCode products page at LiveCode.com and I don't see an option to download any version of LC Server earlier than 7. If the settings won't work unless the version is earlier than 7, how can it be gotten? Indeed, I followed the instructions with my version 9 of LC Server and it does not w...

Thanks ClipArtGuy. The correct extension of ".lc" was what was missing. The journey in LC Server begins.

Re: Code for a wizard

Thank so much for your replies, which suggests what should have been obvious to me. But rather than using separate mouseup and mousedown handlers, it seems that I can just open the wizard substack with an external button, let the user click in the field to set the location of the footnote reference,...
