Re: Did not know you could get HTMLText of part of field

If you, Richard, Bogs and others are spending time gossiping about me, I'll take that as a compliment. :-)

Re: Did not know you could get HTMLText of part of field

For example, did you know we have a secret forum called "Gossip About Kaveh" here? It's the most popular forum section we have, with permissions set so you're the only person who can't see it. ;) Where's that razor blade again? Yes, I followed the long thread with Jacque and Mark. There is a lot of...

Re: Did not know you could get HTMLText of part of field

Oh Bogs, don't be mean. I used HyperCard since prerelease!! Someone pls pretend you are surprised, to make me happy!!

Point is HTMLText is a custom property. A field has a custom property, but a chunk of text does not.

Did not know you could get HTMLText of part of field

I just thought I would report this interesting feature I discovered that I found useful. I have used

Code: Select all

get the HTMLText of fld 1
but did not know you could also

Code: Select all

get the HTMLText of char 1 to 100 of fld 1
which is useful for me.

Anyone else surprised by this?

My spinner won't spin

I am trying to use the spinner widget. The screen is locked while it is supposed to show LC is busy. This is to save processing time. But the spinner is stationery. I have followed suggestions from here: https://livecode.com/livecode-widgets-the-spinner-activity-indicator/ and put wait 0 with messag...

Re: Standalone not working with script only stack

OK, I had actually done this correctly before. Please see updated stack with

Code: Select all

standaloneSaved
changed to

Code: Select all

savingStandalone
but with the same result, namely SoS viewable unencrypted.

Re: Standalone not working with script only stack

OK, I now have a working minimal stack, using a Script-only stack. I have modified the stack script, according to Jacqueline's recipe, namely on preopenstack put specialFolderPath("resources") into tLibraryPath put tLibraryPath & "/" & "ScriptOnlyStack.livecodescript" into tPath open stack tPath sta...

Re: Standalone not working with script only stack

Thank you so much Panos. I think it was not that obvious and I don't feel too silly. I would not have thought of that. Yup, it works. :-)

Standalone not working with script only stack

Hi folks. I am trying to put together a minimal stack to try out this excellent suggestion by Jacqueline to encrypt Script only Stacks (SoS's) on the fly: http://lists.runrev.com/pipermail/use-livecode/2020-January/258018.html But I am falling at the first hurdle, before encryption. Please see attac...

Re: Removing a particular text style from a field

I was just about to post that I was thinking of styledText when I referred to the arrays. I think, Hermann, that you commented a long time ago on a problem I had, after Trevor suggested styledText. I don't quite understand what would be best for me, from your comments. In my case I want to have a ra...

Re: Removing a particular text style from a field

Oh, man. I've hit the jackpot today! Another great reply. :-) this is what I was looking for, but of course Hermann's solution has its merits. So Richard, is this the alternative way of controlling text styles to using htmlText? I have been doing all my manipulation using htmlText, with all the head...
