Add a calendar event in iOS

Hi! A quick question for which I've searched a lot without finding an answer: in my iOS application I'd like to create a calendar event for a given date/time/description etc. However, by looking at the dictionary I've only found functions to pick a date, but nothing to interact with the calendar. Is...

What is a "display group"?

Hi, I've been trying to embed a browser into a mobile app for iOS. Looking at this lesson, http://lessons.runrev.com/m/4069/l/22836-how-do-i-use-the-browser-control everything is pretty clear except for one thing. At some point it says "First, create a display group with the name Browser". The point...

Showing an imported image into an imagearea

Hi, Let's say I have a few images that are already imported as controls in my stack, with their visible set to false. I created a group with an image field, that should behave like a pop-up (so it becomes visible upon clicking a button) and display just one of the pre-imported images; the name of th...

Re: Importing XML fails..randomly!

Thanks a lot to both of you! Ok, lessons learned. Yes, I'm definitely new at this so I didn't check for errors.. ooops :roll: it'll go at place #1 of my list. The random error might be provoked by the space, then. I guess it'll just take a couple of edits and I should be good to go. Many thanks agai...

Importing XML fails..randomly!

Hi everyone, this one is really making my head spin. There goes: I've written a small app that queries an API and gets a xml with local weather, which then parses and structures into a card. Everything was working fine initially, except that after a while I started getting "xmlerr: can't parse xml" ...

Re: Create an object in a DIFFERENT card

Brilliant Klaus, thanks! I didn't think one could "move" from the current card and still keep a script alive in executing commands, especially if it was placed onto a button in a specific card! How about those temporary variables? Do I need to declare them at stack level for the script to work? (I s...

Create an object in a DIFFERENT card

Hi, I've got a stack with a lot of different cards, each having the same customproperty with a specific value. I'm trying to write a recursive function, that has to be assigned to a button in a specific card, that does this: - creates an invisible field in each card - puts the customproperty into th...

Re: Confused with local variable usage

Thanks, I'm still doubtful on one thing though: how can I update the value of a local variable, declared at the card level, from an object on the same card?
Do I need to create a function on the card that's tasked to update the value, or is there a quicker way?
:D

Confused with local variable usage

Hi, I'm trying to set a local variable in a card script, so that I can update its value and get it as needed. On the card script I've written: local thisVar = 23 on tryThis answer thisVar end tryThis In the same card there's a button that does this: on mouseUp put 21 into thisVar tryThis end mouseUp...

Re: Bypassing the 5Mb limit for PDFs on Android

Oh. I hadn't tried to deploy the app to my tablet yet, I see from the dictionary that printing to pdf is indeed not possible from android. It appears that Quartam PDF Library can indeed support Android, I'll give it a try - However even if that works, is there any smart way to get around the limit? ...

Bypassing the 5Mb limit for PDFs on Android

Hi, I'm trying to print some cards of my stack to a pdf, which is basically an illustrated book (lots of images on lots of pages). The aim is to send via email a custom pdf that only has the pages that the user selects on the mobile app. There's a problem: Android Mail only supports attachments up t...

Can't find card in recursive function if card name's default

Hiya all, I've written a recursive function to set a custom property of all cards in my stack. Here's a snippet of the longer function: put the cardnames of this stack into tCardList repeat with cardIndex = 1 to the number of lines in tCardList put line cardIndex of tCardList into tCard if the myPag...

Re: What's the best way to set up this stack? (Hidden pages)

Thanks Simon. Let me say that I appreciate immensely your approach of giving hints instead of a solution, that's what's needed to get people thinking and learning. Your suggestion of using custom properties is great, however I won't be able to use it since this project will be more of a brochure tha...

What's the best way to set up this stack? (Hidden pages)

Hi again, I'm trying to find the best way to setup a new project. Since I'm really new to programming I'd love to have a methodological point of view from your experience :) Basically, the project will be a digital book for android and ipad. It's going to have more than 100 pages, so readability is ...
