In my current program I go through the pages (cards), group all the components and simply resize one item, the group, so it fits the screen, then just change font sizes individually if required.

When resizing for screen change, everything on the card is gathered into one group and resized. Do you mean what setting the "fullscreenmode" on the mobile platform does? Th...

Re: I cannot connect my database - sqlite to my andriod phone

Since a couple of version we can have this even shorter:

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
   answer "Files in documents:" & CR & files(specialFolderPath("documents"))
end mouseUp
No more messing with the defaultfolder. :-)

Re: Vexing inconsistent problem with click location. Crazy!!

Hi Tim,
...
Was it one of those guys you met?
no, but the Tim Miller I met in Malta was also a doctor but was from GB or Scotland,
if I remember correctly, hence the misunderstanding. :-)

I don't know if I got your code correctly. No you didn't! 8) Why not copy/paste my ready-to-use code and only replace the names with the names of your database? ... ## local lDatabaseFile ## Not neccesary, see below... global gDatabaseID put specialfolderpath("resources") & "/DB_ePMMA.db" into tSou...

then we may have met in Malta 2004 (or 2006?), right? Welcome back!

Re: I cannot connect my database - sqlite to my andriod phone

Hi lemodizon, I will not add my database under the copy files since this is not writable on Andriod right? WRONG! You have to add your db file there, or it will not be put into the final app package! how about in the inclusion part do I have to check the SQLite database? Sure, if you want to connect...
