Re: Sort multidimensional array

Oops, I meant the 19xx dates are in DD/MM/YYYY format and the 20xx dates dates are in MM/DD/YYYY format. Maybe. It depends whether "07/11/2011" refers to July 11 or Nov 7. Though all of the 20xx dates in that example can seem ambiguous since they use numbers lower than 13 in both the first and seco...

Re: Datagrid missing data

Probably not a corrupted array. More likely something in the source data for that record that isn't what you expect.

Re: Sort multidimensional array

Completely my bad, i misunderstood your comment on useSystemDate... No worries. I've seen enough of you posts that I have a good sense of the solid place you're coming from, and TBH you've been so helpful here that in my book you can do no wrong. Indeed, the other day you were in a similar situatio...

Re: go stack not working

Hello FourthWorld Thanks for being s detailed on your explanation. ... See on this link. How do I use stacks with LiveCode Server? Thanks for that (I updated the link here so it can be read easily).

Re: What can (not) be done when exporting to HTML5?

Today I found this thread https://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=35425 in which FourthWorld says that the HTML export is "... best seen as experimental ...". I don't know if this statement refers to the HTML5 export or not. HTML stopped using version numbers in the name quite some years ag...

Hi Richard, Thanks Richard -- while i completely agree, that also misses the point of my question a bit Did it? Let's see: Alas, that was not my question.

Re: Exporting an animated sequence as a movie

I'll bet there's a command line tool that can assemble a video clip from a series of images. If there is, it can be directed from LC via the shell function.

Re: Sort multidimensional array

A little, but not too much "offtopic"... Unfortunately "system date" etc. is not supported on ANDROID! No idea why this seems so difficult to implement. In any case we cannot sort a datagrid -> System Datetime And I have to explain this embarrassing fact to users of the german LC forum at least onc...

Thanks Richard -- while i completely agree, that also misses the point of my question a bit Did it?

It may be useful to see what the DG thinks it's working with, by obtaining the DG's dgText.

Good question, Richard! :D

In principle, that widget is self-explainig, create it and start signing.
But a TAD more documentation would definitvely not hurt, same for some other widgets.
I do a lot of reading on mobile devices, where no IDE is available. I'm probably not alone.

Just curious: where on the web can one find the documentation for the signature widget?
