Re: Identifying DataGrids

Thanks Klaus,

You came to the rescue once again. I spliced that into the code I was working on and it did the job.

Identifying DataGrids

Is there a function or a script that can look at all the controls on a card and identity the ones that are datagrids? I would like something that would return the just the names of any datagrids present.

Thanks,
Larry

Re: LiveCode 9 Question

Thanks Jacque, Had I found those earlier I might have spent more time with LC 9. But now that Klaus told me about the "tab" I think I will try to get used to using the suggestions. Looked at the Snippets Manager and see that I can add or delete them but how do I use an existing snippet? Thanks, Larry

Re: LiveCode 9 Question

Thanks for info Klaus. That is about the only key I didn't think of trying.

LiveCode 9 Question

Now that a stable LiveCode 9.5 has been released I figured it was about time I learned to use LC9. I have looked ate it in previous releases and always been discouraged with all the "drop-down-stuff" that happens when you start to write some code in the IDE. I have figured out how to use the up-down...

Re: Simple Standalone for a Macintosh

Thanks Klaus. I have made a couple of stacks that demonstrate this simple case. They are in the zipped file which I have attached. The splash is called "Launcher.livecode" and the main program is called "Main Application.livecode". I have also included a folder called "Launcher Test Compiled" which ...

Re: Simple Standalone for a Macintosh

Thanks everyone. Klaus, I'm still trying to digest this. Are these two scripts to be placed in the Splash stack?
Then in the main stack whenever something needs to be saved you save it in the "target stack".

Simple Standalone for a Macintosh

There is a LiveCode lesson entitled "How do I save custom properties in a standalone application?" which can be found at http://lessons.livecode.com/m/4071/l/17375-how-do-i-save-custom-properties-in-a-standalone-application . It works just fine if you make the standalone for a Windows computer but t...

Re: "Save" in a standalone application

Many thanks Klaus,

That revealed the culprit. My source stack file was named "Giving Main.livecode" and not "Giving_Main.livecode". I hate it when I do that to myself and I am glad you did not run out of ideas.

Re: "Save" in a standalone application

Hi Klaus, I did check the result and it was empty indicating that the file was created in the documents folder.( Prior to running the openStack I had made sure that no file "Giving.livecode" was in the documents folder.) The file that ended up in "documents" is still not a stack and I get the messag...

Re: "Save" in a standalone application

Thanks Klaus and bogs for your suggestions. I now have an openStack script that uses some of both of your suggestions. ## Script of splash screen/exe/app: on openstack put the name of this stack into tStack if tStack<>"Giving" then exit to top If the environment is "Development" then answer question...

Re: Datagrid Corruption

I found 3 datagrid commands that may be helpful and am testing to see how they will work in a standalone. They are "refreshList", "resetList" and "resetControl". In my testing I have the user access them by way of a menu item. When I have observed the over writing condition I have tried each of them...

Datagrid Corruption

Way more often than I would like, I end up with a datagrid that gets corrupted when I load new data into it. The grid gives the appearance of having had data written over the top of existing data. Here is a screen shot of the looks like: Screen Shot 2019-02-02 at 1.51.50 PM.png When I am in the IDE ...
