Re: Creating a text file isn't working for me

Hi Tom, Hi Klaus I guess I'm trying to do something that maybe can't be done. When the app is sent to a user I was under the impression that the app would be able to generate about 9 or 10 empty txt files that will be used when the app is running. this CAN be done, but I hope you will agree that THI...

Re: Creating a text file isn't working for me

Hi Tom, well, someone needs to write that file to your specialfolderpaht("documents") before you can load it into your stack! Did you? If yes, how? If not, who on earth did? :-D This does NOT create a file: on openStack put URL("file:" & (specialFolderPath("Documents") & "/PC.txt")) into tfile end o...

Re: Creating a text file isn't working for me

Just to be sure:
specialfolderpath("documents") on desktop is completely different from specialfolderpath("documents") on MOBILE!
They are NOT the same folders! They have nothing in common except the name and the fact that we have write permission
in that folder on desktop and mobile.

Re: Creating a text file isn't working for me

To be clear, THIS:

Code: Select all

put URL("file:" & (specialFolderPath("Documents") & "/PC.txt")) into tFile
will NOT create a file, but rather read that file into the variable tFile or give an ERROR if the file is not present!

Re: Creating a text file isn't working for me

Hi Tom, you are supplying an ABSOLUTE pathname, so setting the defaultfolder is not neccessary! Try this: on openStack put specialFolderPath("documents") & "/PC.txt") into tfile if there is NOT a file tFile then answer "Not file yet!" else put url("file:" & tFile) into fld "content of file" end if e...

Re: Toggling hilite of list field line

Hi Stam, not sure, what exactly are you after? But it surely will be scriptable! Hint: If you did not already, in LC preferences -> General check -> Property labels are -> Name of Livecode property Then you see the names of all properties in the inspector that you can use in scripts and not just the...

Any idea what the signature widget looks like? Can’t find it on the items panel...
Come on, there are no THAT much controls in the tools palette! 8)

It looks like a pencil over a rectangle with rounded corners.

Re: Sort multidimensional array

Do you know offhand if that also prevents the "international" sort option from working? No, sorry, I created two datagrids with one column and entered some text with and without umlauts. Sort type in DG 1 = INTERNATIONAL sort tpye in DG 2 = TEXT and both gave me the same result, so I'm not sure, wh...

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 once...

Re: Storing info in an array v. individual cards...

Hi Glenn,

hm, 150 keys in your array should not cause any slowdown.
But without looking at your stack/code I cannot say anything to the problem.

If you like I can take a look at your stack, if yes, drop a line: klaus AT major-k.de


Best

Re: Digital Signature

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.
