Re: Saving user modifications to Table Data

Thanks Simon,
I think I got it.
Can I do that with the file browser on the mac with the phone connected?
or should I write a script to do it and run it on the phone?

Tom

Re: Saving user modifications to Table Data

Hi Tom, I actually think you have to save the data stack using the "Copy Files" tab in the standalone builder, then to actually save to it copy it from the "engine" to "documents". There is a bunch of short hand in there, if not clear just say. Simon Hi Simon, What is the engine? BTW this is an app...

Re: Saving user modifications to Table Data

In the standalone application settings, go to the stacks tab. Hit the add stack file button and choose you stack. This will include that stack with your stand alone app. OK. I can test the app on my phone which is connected to the Mac workbook pro that I am working on. It all compiles right install...

Re: Saving user modifications to Table Data

Glad to hear it. Why do you place the contents of the custom property into the variable, and the immediately place the field contents into that variable. The second will replace the first, correct? It looks like you do not need the first line. Craig Thanks Craig, I only did that because I was copyi...

Re: Saving user modifications to Table Data

Hi Tom, I guess tvar is a variable, right? Then do NOT put quotes around it, or it will turn into a simple string! ... put the agentname of fld "tagentinfo" into tVar ## This will overwrite the content of the custom prop of your field with a new value in the variable! put fld "Aname" into tVar set ...

Re: Saving user modifications to Table Data

Do I create the stack from within the app? If not how is that stack distributed to new devices? I'm really new at this. Thabks Tom Create it separately, and include the file as an external. An .exe file cannot save itself or another .exe but it can change and save a .rev/.livecode file. Thanks, Ill...

Re: Saving user modifications to Table Data

My preferred method of doing this is to create another stack. create custom properties of the stack for each of the variables you want to save. Do not save that stack as a stand alone. When the user enters his information, set the custom properties of that stack to those values. To load those value...

Saving user modifications to Table Data

I am trying to put a few fields of data into a table and then be able to populate those fields with the table data when the app opens. The data in the table reverts to the data that was in the table before it was modified by the user when the app is closed. What am I missing? I have just a few lines...

Re: Android Problems

Did you read this? http://livecode.wikia.com/wiki/Signing_an_app Max, Thanks.

I am nearly back to whe...

Re: Android Problems

Simon, I don't get the error until the app is being installed to the test target. In this case the phone. That is to say it goes from building classes, something else (too fast to see on screen) to Preparing Package to Installing app on target device whereupon the error msg "install_parse_failed_man...
