Re: Suspend bluetooth - mergBLE?

Yes, exactly that: when I click a button, it turns off Bluetooth (which will stop the alarm from repeating) and after a scripted amount of time (say 25 minutes) it automatically turns Bluetooth back on. That way I can go back to sleep right away without being continuously awakened by the alarm. And ...

Suspend bluetooth - mergBLE?

I am a type 1 diabetic using a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) to track my blood sugar levels. On a few occasions my blood sugar may drop into the very low range and the monitor sounds a loud alert. Even after I eat carbs to bring my sugar levels up, the monitor will beep loudly every 5 minutes for...

Getting nowhere choosing browse tool

This seems so simple but I am getting nowhere. When I double click on my stack in the Finder, I want it on opening to automatically switch to the browse tool from the pointer tool so I edit its script: On openstack choose browse tool end openstack but it will not switch to the browse tool until I do...

Equivalent of command click in iOS

I want to make a hidden button in an iOS version that only reacts if a key or key combination is pressed while the button is clicked, such as:
if the shift key is down then
do this
end if
but how do I do something like that in an iOS version?
Thanks
David

Re: Weird prompt with Answer

I played around with this some more and now I really do believe in tech gremlins: the source of that variable was the last line in a field, let's say it looked like it was 12345Q so I use the message box to get the number of chars of this line and it returns - get this - 7! 7!! So I ask for the char...

Re: Weird prompt with Answer

Thank you all so much. I traced the problem to what must have been an invisible quote in my variable. When I erased the source of that variable and retyped it, it worked as it should. :D Thanks again!

Re: confirm image embedded in field with imagesource

Thanks, but not sure what you mean. I tried
put the imagesource of the last char of fld "q"
after making sure that the image was the last character, but nothing was returned.
Any other ideas?

confirm image embedded in field with imagesource

I've used imagesource to embed an image in a field (usually replacing the last character in the field). With scripting, how can I confirm that an image already resides in the field? "get last char of field "q" does not return the name of the graphic.

Re: Pricing Question

Hi Richard, I thought if I had the main stack be the app and substacks be files that the app could modify, and that as independent files could be saved, that that might work. Obviously wrong, Is there a way to do this with stacks? (I thought of having data saved to text files and retrieved from them...

Pricing Question

Let's say I have developed a great app on the free version. I notice that I can create read-only standalones with this free version. If I purchase an "Indy" subscription @ $49/mo., will I be able to create read-write standalones? If I can, and I wish to sell the read-write standalone, say on the App...
