Re: "The database disk image is malformed"

It apparently was a corrupt database. I found the new "recover" command, which fixed the problem. Running from the MacOS Terminal:

Code: Select all

sqlite3 corruptedFile.sql .recover | sqlite3 recoveredFile.sql
Now I know how much hibiscus to use to make my tea.

Also, my queries *used*...

Re: Overflow text in a Data Grid table?

Well, that’s what I want: when there’s no data in the next cell, I’d like the first cell to overflow into the next.

Overflow text in a Data Grid table?

I don't suppose there's an easy way to get long text in one cell to overflow into the next cell in a Data Grid table, the way it would naturally in a spreadsheet?

Re: Various ways of matching a line

It seems like the advantage of using an associative array, if there is one, is to make the code more readable. Referring to the cells this way makes sense: fruit[id] >> returns name, where "id" is a variable fruit[fName] >> returns id, where "fname" is a variable fruit[id]["quality"] >> returns qual...

Re: Various ways of matching a line

Thank you very much. I can see that it works, but I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around it. Before you posted, I went ahead and made the functions with lineOffset, so at least that works too.

Re: Various ways of matching a line

I'm facing a problem which reminded me of this thread. I'm unsure whether to use arrays or lineOffset, and unfortunately the documentation for multidimensional associative arrays is pretty meagre. Say I have a table of data (a string): 1 apple 3 2 banana 5 3 cherry 4 4 date 2 The columns are ID, nam...

Re: See both variables and code in the debugger?

I've mentioned 3 times that I'm running MacOS. Specifically, it's 10.13.6, not that it should matter.

It may be that Variable Monitor didn't cause my problems, but given all the downtime I had trying to get that and LC working, I'm not going to risk trying it again until I really need it.

Re: See both variables and code in the debugger?

And the hits keep coming! Capitalized variables don't get sorted into proper alphabetical order with the non-capitalized variables in the Variables list, and there's no way to change it.

Re: See both variables and code in the debugger?

Now I'm having the problem where the line numbers in the Script Editor don't scroll . I can fix that by closing and reopening the script editor, but then LC forgets the column width for the Variables list, and kills all my floating Variable windows. At this point I'm wondering if it would have been ...

Re: See both variables and code in the debugger?

@dunbarx: Like I said, I was able to find Sample Stacks in the Help menu. In my View menu, LC calls what you're referring to a "Toolbar". If I show that Toolbar, then yes, Sample Stacks is there, but that issue has been moot for a long time. @AndyP: I'd already tried deleting Preferences when reinst...

Re: See both variables and code in the debugger?

Andy, I'm sorry, I can't use Variable Monitor. It took the already sluggish debugger and then made it glacial. It took me a couple minutes before I could even get LC to quit so I could restart. Now my issue is that LC won't even deign to open the script editor window. I'm reinstalling LC as we speak...

Re: See both variables and code in the debugger?

@mwieder, that did the trick, thanks! I'm finally able to see Variable Monitor. LC ought to be smart enough to check the current folder for Plugins if it's named "Plugins". @Most everyone else: The icon-based toolbar you've been talking about is a toolbar, not a menubar. LC calls it a toolbar. If yo...
