How to script "Bring to Front"

If I select an object I can bring it to the front of the layers using the submenu of the 'Object' menu: "Bring to Front". How do I write that function into a script? I searched 'Front" and "Bring" and "send" but no luck.
Thanks,
David

Re: Trouble importing image

Ok, Murphy was just having his way with me. Believe it or not, I went back to the stack on Yosemite (and this is the same file, mind, because it's syncing via Dropbox) and now it's importing. I did not touch the script, it is the exact script that did not work before and now, since I guess it got "p...

Re: Trouble importing image

Well, the result was empty. Nothing came up with your script, Richard. But I did learn that
it's the operating system: the import worked just fine on a MacBook Pro running 10.8.5. It
just does not work on 10.10.3 ("Yosemite"). Hopefully the next Livecode update will fix it.
Thanks,
Dave

Re: find file dialog box

Thanks, Richard. Funny how Hypercard begat Supercard, which begat Metacard, which begat Revolution, which begat LiveCode. :D

find file dialog box

In Supercard all you need to to is type Open proj "xxx" and a dialog box opens so you can locate the project, but how is this done in Livecode?
Thanks,

Input data from USB Scantron

I'm trying to write a Livecode app on a Mac OS (Yosemite) that would input scanned exam data from a Scantron machine with a USB connection. Back in the day, I did this successfully with Supercard and a serial port connected Scantron, a machine which is showing its age. Any help would be appreciated.

Indenting scripts pasted into script window

When I copy a Supercard script and paste it into a script window in LC, it does not auto-indent. Is there a way to make that happen?
Thanks, David

Re: Keep formatting when moving text

Thank you for the response, but there is this issue: I am adding the formatted text with super/subscripts to a field which already has text in it. (What I am really doing is creating a test from selected question cards.) The set command replaces any text in the destination field with the text in the...

Keep formatting when moving text

How can I keep the formatting of text (i.e., super and subscripts) when using "Put" to move text from one text field to another?
Thanks, David
