Re: Check available connection with tsNet?

I didn't really think it was available, but figured I'd ask for completeness :)

Re: repeat

Your (probably) looking for the 'repeat until' loop form, and 'With messages'.

Re: Check available connection with tsNet?

Short answer: there is a lot more wrong with that site than just dropping ping packets, so I'm not sure that is a valid test :P Longer answer: 20 1.) I noticed the question in this thread is starting to take a turn. Originally, the question / goal as I read it was merely ~ I would like to test if a...

Re: uninstall/delete 32-bit LiveCode in Windows 10?

Before you do that, try this instead. Go to - 25 C:\Users\x\AppData\Roaming\RunRev\Components\The-LC-version-you-want-to-uninstall See if there is a file there named (probably) .set.exe (this will be a hidden file, so in folder options make sure hidden files are visible). If it is there, you can cli...

Re: Check available connection with tsNet?

Yah, I suspect it should work on any OS, provided the ping command is formatted correctly for the OS in question (does mobile have ping? No clue :D ), which means at worst if your multi-platform, your talkingi about if / then or select / case structure to determine how to format the ping.

Re: Check available connection with tsNet?

If that is the case, that would be a perfect example to base it on, I don't care about the ip. part of field 2, just give me whatever it says below that in the return information. Or whenver you find another site that doesn't return ping, or comes up with something other than what we're testing for....

Re: Check available connection with tsNet?

Well, I tested some websites with your shell script, and for some of them I had something like "1 packet send, 0 returned". In this case, it's difficult to say if the website is up. Heh, Couldn't you give me a hint ? LOL. Please copy/paste field 2's result, or give me an example address, cause with...

Re: Check available connection with tsNet?

Hi, This is more of a curiousity question than an answer to your post, but to check whether a connection is available or not, why would you use tsNet at all, instead of say, shell() ? it's even more easy. While I think that is danged spiffy, AxWald, I think your definition of "easy" and mine are ve...

This is more of a curiousity question than an answer to your post, but to check whether a connection is available or not, why would you use tsNet at all, instead of say, shell() ?

Re: Table Field

And... ? If you can color any other cell individually, then you can color any specific cell individually, I still don't get the problem.

Your very welcome :) A new user to program (x) would probably not know all the ways they can find help from program (x), I didn't know when I started, I wager many others did / do not either, you find out just like I did, by visiting your friendly neighborhood forums :D Dunno when your "early days" ...

Re: Scripting 'fit to content'

I don't think you can do it that simply, in one line, but you can add up the widths of your objects for instance, and put that in a variable, then the height and put that in a variable, then something like (psuedo)~ 25 set the left of this stack to ( the left of your left most object - 5) 25 set the...
