Re: Updating Footnoted Text

Hello Dunbarx and others Just a followup to my request for help. The meaning of the only reply so far has eluded me. As I said, I don't want anyone to write the code, just hoping that an experienced programmer could share a little pointer or clue to the algorithm that could be used. The function see...

Re: How to put multiple images in the same row of a datagrid form

Hi Klaus

Thank you for your quick reply and the code. You understood what I meant and the code works perfectly. (Of course, the typo in the last line of the behavior script was obvious.) I've yet to understand "[Image URL]", but enlightenment will come in time. :D

Re: Bug 19023

Thanks for the last suggestion. I have not tried "focus on nothing," and would like to try it, but being a newbie, I would like (need!) a little more explanation of what was meant by tracking mouse movement and changing focus when the mouse is not over a field or the browser. I implemented the techn...

Re: Browser Widget doesn't release focus to fields

Hello LC forum, My last post under the old subject heading having received no comment, I experimented and found that the title of an old thread can changed to a more informative one. Perhaps there is nothing to comment other than if my app is being affected by uncorrected bug no. 19023, there is not...

Browser Widget Doesn't Release Focus to Fields

Hello again, Maybe I' don't understand the bug report, but it seems to me that the bug labeled 19023 and described in the link above may be the cause of my problem.

Re: Problem entering text in fields when in Browse Mode of I

Thanks, Jacque, for your suggestion. I added your suggested line to the opencard handler, but it had no effect. I opened the card with the handler, clicked into a field, and typed text normally, then I left the card and returned to it, clicked in the same field or any other field on the card, typed,...

Re: revExecuteSQL failure

Thank you Bangkok and Sparkout. The apostrophes in the text was the problem, or most of it, and the escape technique worked. About a hundred records were inserted. Thanks for the comment on the mixture of literal and placeholder syntax. No need to try it now but your suggestion will be used in futur...
