Thank you very much. I now fully understand the concept and will implement this and get back to you when I have done so.

Re: List of files on server for download

Thank you! I was angling toward having a small piece of code that would check on the http server which is on a shared host (where my updates take place) in a directory where I would copy any changed report files. On startup, the app would look in that folder, grab a list of files and compare them wi...

Re: List of files on server for download

Okay, wow.. that sounds just like the solution that I was going to dream up when I got bigger.. :) It all pretty much sounds like rocket science to me I'm afraid but I am going to take what you have given me and research it. I just think that a text file with all information in may be tedious unless...

List of files on server for download

I see that some people have touched on this topic but no definitive answer... I have a splash screen that checks for the latest version of a Livecode file by reading a text file for a version number and this is great and works fine for what I need it to do. However, my application uses plenty of Qua...

Re: Calendar Event Scheduling

Craig, to be honest, building from scratch is a little beyond my technical abilities at this point so the short answer is no, however, I would like my application to be able to achieve all of this without having to resort to exporting to Microsoft. It does NOT have to be a calendar at all. I just th...

Calendar Event Scheduling

Good day Livecoders, I am sure that this has been achieved before but I would like to be able to see, in a calendar, all the dates that I will be receiving materials into my factory. I have a purchase table with OrderDate and DueDate and have downloaded calendarPane from Rotunda Software but can't r...

Re: Row Template Column Behavior

Actually, it's no first line and then a break every twelve lines.. Livecode appears to be very superstitious!
Could it be that the grid is populated with data prior to the buttons being rendered? That still wouldn't explain why it would skip records.

Re: Row Template Column Behavior

Hi Klaus, Yes this is correct, I was also under the impression that buttons would not work in a table grid but all the buttons work as expected. Each button has it's own script as such: global gArray on mouseUp get the dgHilitedIndex of control "salesGrid" put the dgDataOfIndex[it]of control "salesG...

Re: Row Template Column Behavior

Hi Klaus,

There is no script in fillInData section. pData variable is blank. I have created the buttons in the row template and placed my scripts in the buttons. What else can I send you that may shed some light?

Best

Re: Complex selection queries on multiple tables

I did not get the chance to thank you for this in depth answer to my question. I have battled long and hard and have actually managed to write a complete system which works well in my business using Livecode. Now that it is finished though, I see that there are many places for improvement, both in t...

Row Template Column Behavior

Good day, I have created a column in my datagrid which I use to click buttons for editing records, deleting records, etc. I have everything working nicely except the buttons only show on the second line for 12 lines, skips a line of buttons and then shows another 12 lines and so on all the way to th...

Re: Automatically Updating Stacks

Thank you... So in other words, in the "launcher" stack, all version checks should be done with text files prior to opening any stack? It would work but isn't fool proof method of versioning. For this particular application, we use Mac and PC. Each user has a client which connects to a mysql db on t...

Automatically Updating Stacks

Dear Livecoders, I must say that I have scoured the internet the entire day to find a meaningful example on how one could go about this. I've seen numerous posts and questions but no posts are actually helpful to a beginner like me. I need a function to check if there is an update to the mainstack w...

I am currently fetching my data from my database like this: select format(sum(numberField),2) as numberField from table Which returns a number formatted like this : 1,234.56. Livecode does not seem to like it when I try and add two numbers with this formatting together. I have looked at selecting th...
