Re: Stung by the Message Path! Lessons learnt..

I'll agree with that sentiment, just be warned that "this stack" (at least in the IDE versions I use) doesn't always produce a reliable result (in other words, I always use at minimum stack "nameOfStack"). on preOpenStack if the target is stack "myOpeningStack" then... The additional keystrokes are ...

Re: Stung by the Message Path! Lessons learnt..

All I needed to do was to check in the preOpenStack handler of the Main stack that the perOpenStack handler was initialized from the Main stack While I know I've been stung in the past the same way, I'm curious about something here Andy, why not just stick the openStack and preOpenStack code into t...

Re: Copying files

I wouldn't say stupid, especially considering some of the lulus I've pulled heh, but there are a few things I'd say about your code (even the one that *works*). 20 1. I am making an assumption here that you are on (some version) of windows. IF that is the case, know that paths generally follow the f...

Re: Not a number is a number, problem

To fix that, the last case of the switch statement just needs to be plain "default". Thanks, I couldn't figure that one out heh, and there wasn't anything about it in 6.x (which is what I am testing this in). I really at some point need to go back and learn this language from the bottom up, as it s...

Re: Drop Down Menu will not reopen at top of menu items

Well, I can't help you there heh. Hopefully some of the other big sur users will chime in, I wasn't able to reproduce what your describing here or on Windows.

Re: Drop Down Menu will not reopen at top of menu items

Mkay, which OS are you on? I can't say that happens on 'nix, but will be happy to look at it on a different OS.

Re: Drop Down Menu will not reopen at top of menu items

Hiya David,

By "drop down menu", are you referring to an "Option menu", a "Pulldown menu", or a "Combo box" ?

I'm guessing it is either the Option menu or Combobox, since the Pulldown doesn't display this type of behavior.

Re: Not a number is a number, problem

Sure, this is all in a testing phase at this point, so the code is both ugly and inefficient (and I'm not looking to change either, really at this point), but for the purposes of illustration only (and because you asked for it :twisted: ) This is setup to monitor a field, and when a word is typed in...

Re: Utilizing VB Script execution?

I don't see how we could do anything but make it more complicated at this point, unless you find something wrong with my statement as it stands, which I'll repeat again, was do as alternateLanguage may have some appeal for you these days... unless , of course, you use 'nix , which means you can't us...

Oooops. Sry for puzzling you, should have explained better.
's ok, I eventually got it because, due to what you wrote, I broke it out and tested with a number of vars until I reached the conclusion you presented ;)

Re: Utilizing VB Script execution?

BTW, the 1.1 is I assume pointing to Rev, but it could just as easily be pointing to Mc 1.1 If it runs on any hardware you can still turn on , it's probably Rev. Their versioning began in the 20th century with 1.0, based on MC v2.4.2 or later, IIRC. Wow, really? How about running it on my current r...
