Re: Can I change the thickness of a Table Field's Grid Lines?

Thank you, I was just hunting for a way to avoid the complexity of a datagrid. I'm newer at them, but I believe I have the skills use a datagrid form and get the look I want.

Can I change the thickness of a Table Field's Grid Lines?

Hi, I'm trying to change the look of a table field. I want to thicken the horizontal and vertical grid lines. Can that be done? I found how to change the border width, is there a property like that for the internal lines?

Re: SetDataOfLine and Repeat--I'm missing something

Ok, I got it working. I needed to put the SetDataOfLine in the fillin part of the script for the behavior of the DataGrid. Then it automatically grabs the data from the text field and enters/saves it back into the Array. on FillInData pDataArray -- This message is sent when the Data Grid needs to po...

SetDataOfLine and Repeat--I'm missing something

Hi, I'm working with datagrids in the form style. It is just a little demo stack to see how to add across rows. I have text fields "SmallNumber", "BigNumber", and "TotalNumber". I have the datagrid script populate SmallNumber and BigNumber from my array of data. Then, it adds them together and place...

Re: Data Grid Concatenate Info from Columns in Table

Thanks, I tested your example and as expected it works, but it requires highlighting a line and clicking the button. I see in your example how you insert the data from the grid-- do the work --and then load(set) the data with the new concatenated stuff into column 3. I'm looking for an automatic way...

Data Grid Concatenate Info from Columns in Table

Hi, I have been learning and working with LiveCode for a while now, but now I've started learning datagrids and am having trouble. I am trying to concatenate text from two columns in a datagrid table, not a form, and place it automatically in a third column. I have columns "NameFirst", "NameLast", a...

Re: Apply Multiplication Across Points List Using Repeat

I got a chance to try the "repeat for each" pattern and it worked well, but I had to pop over into the dictionary to figure out why. The tLine variable just showed up in the sample you gave… I changed it to i (I know this makes no real difference) then I could more easily see this was the labelVaria...

Re: Apply Multiplication Across Points List Using Repeat

Klaus, thanks for the additional information. If I need it later to work on the Y coordinate, working backwards might be nice. I will also try the repeat for each method you describe. I like practicing with tasks and purposes that have attracted my interest. I did the draw line graph tutorial just p...

Re: Apply Multiplication Across Points List Using Repeat

Thank you so much! I see the key part put -item 1 of line i of temp the ...of line i...does the work of stepping through each line of the list. Can the multiplication be made clearer? Is this a text replacement or is this multiplication? It did give me: -44,0,-44,0,-44 the expected values. (-1)*44= ...

Re: Apply Multiplication Across Points List Using Repeat

Thank you for the advice about avoiding an array for such a small list. I'll work on your strategy for moving through a repeat loop.

Apply Multiplication Across Points List Using Repeat

I'm creating a drawing of a concave hexagon built with three pieces. >_< (imagine the bar on top) I created a points list that gives me the first of three parts. I believe if I multiply the first item in each line of the points list by (-1) it will give me the mirror image of the graphic object. Thi...

Draw with Vector Tools--Resource

I've been working on learning the vector drawing tools and found a resource that helped. It is a HTML 5 website that has interactive graph paper. It lets you draw and then obtain the coordinate pairs. The cool part is that it appears to match the LiveCode setup with 0,0 in the top left of the screen...
