Re: about 'local X = empty' statement

As noted in the comments to but 19413, this isn't actually a bug, but the confluence of a few things. bug or not bug and adding to this that the Script Editor is a bit silent,; this is a real pain, for starters or not :twisted: For starters, while assigning values to local variables at declaration ...

Re: Enhanced "combine" command

"Gadget" is anything (not anyone) that is small, beautiful, and has class and character. Oops, another word so-called 'false friends' :oops: in French: qui séduit par son caractère nouveau et original, mais qui n'est pas d'une grande utilité As you might see, this have a 'useless' meaning in my cou...

Re: Enhanced "combine" command

All this is doable. No argument. But it surely has to be admitted that the enhanced command is cleaner and more accessible. The delimiters live in that single line. There is a bit more work required to set them up in Thierry's gadget. gadget? :shock: So here is a variant, where you can call the fun...

Hi Craig,

Sorry, I'm getting old :)

If you ever use it and want to change some behavior,
I'll be happy to give a hand...

Re: Enhanced "combine" command

This can all be done right now, but not in one line. Hi Craig, you could try this little piece of pure livecode and might be that you'll like it and use it before your request will be honored? function flattenArray A , T, X if A is not an array then return T & X & A & d1 repeat for each key K in A ...

Thanks Hermann,

Yes, I'm aware of this but might be another way to deal with this?

don't know...

In my case,
I don't care much as long as the content of the field is not altered
when transforming it.

strange rendering on text field

Hi, is this a known bug? I'm on Mac Sierra with LiveCode Indy 8.1.6 (the latest). The text inside the field is fine as I can use it to build a working html page; only the rendering of the 1st line is wrong. Here is a screenshot: Capture d’écran 2017-09-21 à 12.15.47.png N chars: 20207 N lines: 8 N c...

Re: about 'local X = empty' statement

and that's the point. I was guessing this too, and that the result is the word 'empty' instead of an empty variable looks a bug to me. I would agree it seems 'bug-ish', after all if you have nothing in a variable, it should be nothing whether you write empty, "", or some other method. Doing this wo...

Code: Select all

local x = empty

on opencard
      answer "<" & x & ">"
end opencard
Think what could be the answer, and try it...
