Re: Footnotes in scrolling text fields

Hello Klaus, Thank you for pointing out the error and the correct handler, but now I have another problem. After reading the dictionary entry for mouseMove and seeing its example, I revised my script for the field containing my body text with footnotes: on mouseMove if the mouseChunk is not empty an...

Footnotes in scrolling text fields

I cannot find this question in the forum. I am writing a ebook on law in which I cite sources (court cases, statutes, and attorney general opinions) for statements. Using linked superscripted consecutive numbers at the end of statements seems the method to use, as in a printed book, but the footnote...

SelectedText Error

My stack has number of cards with locked fields with their list behavior set to true. The script for each field puts the selected text of each line into a variable, and then "go cd <variable>" takes the user to a card of the same name. Today, it has a persistent error: the selected text contains two...

Re: Automating placement of referenced image

Thank you Klaus, dunbarx, and WaltBrown. I now understand how to automate the importation and placement of images of my judges, and If I set the correct image size of my photos in my photo editor, I won't need to scale them with code in the script.

Re: Automating placement of referenced image

But what is the object referred to as IMAGE in the example and that has the name "image"? Is it an "image area", which is one of the tools on the tools pallette?

Automating placement of referenced image

I have a stack of cards, each card of which has the picture of a courtroom as the background. A judge's bench is in the center. The court has seven judges. Each card has fields that contain data about a particular case that one of the seven judges decided. I have a script that automatically creates ...

Creating a revBrowser in a separate stack

The LiveCode tutorial shows how to open a PDF in the LC browser by using a button and selecting a PDF file in the OS directory, but I want the a PDF file to open automatically in an LC browser when the user clicks on a control. I am trying to use a revBrowser in its own stack. Here is the script of ...

Group photo

I cant find any discussion on the forum on how one could enhance a group photo so that when the cursor enters over face or body of each person, a window pops up allowing the user to find out more information about that person. In my project, it is a photo of 21 elected senators for a US territory. O...

Re: Script to write script for a field

The code of MaxDangerMouse has solved my problem about clicking on a line in a list field and going to a card of the same name as the selected line, but now I have a problem related to clicking on a button or image in a background group on multiple cards in a stack in order to open a different pdf d...

Re: Script to write script for a field

Thanks Simon, MaxDangerMouse, and dunbarx for your responses. I think MaxDangerMouse understood best what I am trying to do. I mistakenly thought that I could only use the linkClicked message to navigate from a list field to a particular card. If that were the case, in the script of the list field I...

Script to write script for a field

I am somewhat new to programming and LC. I am creating a stack that will have hundreds of cards. The first card will have a scrollable field (let's call it "index field") on which each subsequent card is listed and accessible by clicking on a link in the line that states its name. Righting the scrip...

Re: Downloading JDK 7

Hafa Adai (Hello in Chamorro) Neil, Thanks for the link. I was hoping there was an alternative source. It installed successfully. No need for now to contact Oracle. On their website there is no obvious way to request help by email. There is a toll free phone number, but negotiating the voice mail is...

I am unable to download the JDK 7 from the Oracle website. The file is named jdk-7u51-windows-x64-demos.zip. I have tried three different browsers and three different ISPs. I am running Windows 8.1 on a 64-bit computer. I have deleted all cookies. Firefox reports that the webpage is redirecting the ...
