I'd also like to say that if you're not using Ken Ray's RevZilla to get to runrev's bug reporting system, you're really missing something. It installs as a runrev plugin and takes the pain out of navigating the quality center.

Try the "Clear All Breakpoints" menuItem under the Development menu. Stack breakpoints using the IDE's debugger are stored in a custom property and don't always get cleared out when you expect them to be. In addition, editing scripts while there are active breakpoints has always been a bit of a prob...

trevix- I've been out of town for a week, so I've missed the conversation here. MSAccess by default opens databases in single-user read-only mode. You can't make changes to a database while Access has control. You can change this, of course, but you have to do it at the Access end of things, either ...

You can certainly work with odbc databases from within rev without having to resort to vbscript. Check out the documentation for the revopendatase command, for example. Trevore DeVore has also made a quite nice database library available that takes a lot of the pain out of managing the connections. ...

Trevix- you've got a typo in your SQL statement. Try replacing the final parenthesis with a semicolon and I think that'll set things right. Change MyConn.Execute "INSERT INTO Indirizzi (nome, cognome) VALUES ('roberto', 'trevisan'))" to MyConn.Execute "INSERT INTO Indirizzi (nome, cognome) VALUES ('...

I avoid Outhouse myself. I *think* the reasoning behind the delete/compact thing is that the mailboxes are databases and it's standard procedure in the database world to do things that way. It gives you the chance to recover deleted emails up to the point where you commit a compaction. Then the mail...

Garrett- Compacting folders is a feature of every email client I've ever used through the years. "Deleting" emails just marks them as candidates in the message database for purging at the next compaction. If you ever have to use (shudder) Outlook you'll find it's exactly the same. I have my email cl...

rotfl. It's probably worth reporting as a bug, although I don't know whether there will be a 2.9 point release or not.

I don't know how you're planning on using this, but here are a couple of ideas off the top of my head: 1. You can store the lookup values as custom properties of an object. Just grab them once, save them, and then look them up from the custom property after that. set the xyz of card "prefs" to someD...

It's a bug. The 3.0 betas do this right, but the earlier script editors have a problem with this. I think what you're running into with this example is that you're working with an invalid syntax - deleting the "[]" doesn't trigger the "Apply" button in the 2.9 editor but does in 3.0. But changing "m...

I filed this bug in May as #6488. It's still, of course, listed as "unconfirmed". It's annoying that this works fine in the IDE but then the behavior changes when you build a standalone. AFAIK there's no workaround without building your own "standard" dialogs for ask and answer. And it appears to be...

Mister Astroboy (hey - it's traditional now) - You may need to mess with the defaultPath setting to get those. Or, as you pointed out, move the media files around and not mess with the code.

The demo seems to run fine. Yes, you're pegging the CPU at 100%, but it doesn't interfere with switching to other tasks, or seem to slow them down for that matter. And the IDE is fully responsive.

atof() returns a double. The easiest thing to do would be to declare CameraX as a double instead of a float. If you need to use a float then you could do a simple cast:

float CameraX = (float) atof(p_arguments[0]);

That does indeed sound like fun. Keep us posted on your progress. FWIW, the best documentation I've found on VBScript is unfortunately from Microsoft. http://www.microsoft.com/DOWNLOADS/details.aspx?familyid=01592C48-207D-4BE1-8A76-1C4099D7BBB9&displaylang=en and http://www.microsoft.com/DOWNLOADS/d...
