Re: Importing data from Google Sheets (problem with returns in cells) [wrong attachment, now updated]

Tab separated formatting is much saner, but is still going to need adjusting to deal with returns in the data as well as returns being the record separator. In that other thread you have a link to Richard's article. In that article is a link to the current repository for the Tweedly function to pars...

Re: "shakes" and "wiggles"

Hi Richmond if field "TEKST" contains "shakes" AND field "TEKST" contains "wiggles" then... If you delve deeper you will see that what you have been asking is whether field "TEKST" contains "shakeswiggles" "&" is a concatenator "and" is a boolean operator. and "wiggles" is not a valid test either, y...

Re: IDE loses 'e' of end command

Not "thankfully" but at least these weird IDE / script editor "things" are not *just* on Windows.

Re: Slow response in script editor

Yes, it is on Windows that I know this happens. I am reluctant to say "it's a Windows thing" as it's actually "a LiveCode thing that manifests on Windows". No there aren't any messages being sent in <time> or loops. Autocomplete and such "helpers" are off. It happens whenever it happens, no recipe. ...

Re: Slow response in script editor

I have often had the script editor do random and stupid things, as well as revert edits to previous versions even after having been changed and saved, often this coincides with poor responsiveness. (We're talking 30 seconds or more between keystrokes to seeing the characters appear on screen.) Somet...

Re: Questions about 'mouseEnter'

Set the image to visible but with blendLevel of 99. Then it will receive mouse messages. On mouseEnter, set the blendLevel to 0, which will have the same effect as showing and hiding to a human, but a mouse can see it all the time.

Re: itemdelimiter?

Not in the Queen's English. It should be "gimme". Of course you Americans must have changed it so as not to mistakenly pronounce it "gim" or even try to Frenchify it and say "zhimm".
Mind you I expect Richmond would have another flavour. But not flavor. :lol:

Re: Question about 'within'...

Not tested, but maybe the original one liner would work using the "screenMouseLoc" perhaps?
(Which seems to be the way Klausimausi is thinking too.)

Code: Select all

repeat until line 1 of tData contains "<td class=" & quote & "date" & quote & ">"
   delete line 1 of tData
   wait 0 milliseconds with messages

should do the trick

Having a stack level opaque setting on all platforms that can have inheritance or individual inheritance blocking for child controls would be really cool.

Re: datagrid form save / update sqlite

I don't see where you have identified the row ID in the datagrid, but let's say it's in the dgData as a column called "rowid", and matches the index column name in the SQLite table. Try: command takeImageFromDatagrid put getDatabaseID() into tDatabaseID put the dgHilitedLines of group "mydatagrid" i...
