Force wrap long word in field

I have field that is populated with a URL from a MySQL database. A URL, of course, is one string with no spaces, in this case can be wider than the field containing it. That is the problem. The URL needs to be forced to wrap according to the width of the field, not truncate. I have looked for ways t...

Remove Carriage Returns

I have a description field that is called from a MySQL database. It has carriage returns and/or line feeds that cause parts of the text to go to Description field in a new row it creates, then into the next row, and the next row, until all the returns in the field are used. The problem is how to kee...

Put the long date into field

"put the long date into field----" only puts date in every 2nd or 3rd field. It was putting the change in every other field, then every third field, but never every field. How does one get this to work on all fields? Boxes are unchecked for having this happen.

Re: Cascading Menus

Instead of reinventing the wheel I used a static list of the 50 states. Then used that choice to query the database. Putting that result into DataGrid was next. I decided not drill down any further, in displaying the data by city instead of state. Problem solved.
Thanks.

Re: Cascading Menus

Will do.
What I'm building is hopefully probably something a lot of folks might be able to use, a state, city, facility, pulldown menu using database selected items. I see lots of them around. I have one that works in php.


Any input appreciated.

Re: How to apply Row and Column Templates to Datgagrid

Super reply. Sure nuff missed max tho. There have been multiple epiphanies though. I found this one was a little strange tho. Once I found the way the data grid is able to display, the default area turned out to be really small. That's how I missed it. I can laugh now but at first :evil: . Whew! Got...

Re: Database to Data Grid and back again - best methods

I agree with Quentin. The complexity of the datagrid makes it where it needs excellent documentation for the beginner and the advanced user, for the free AND the premium, IF there is to be new blood into the life of LiveCode. The documentation for LiveCode is terrible, especially for the beginner an...

Re: How to apply Row and Column Templates to Datgagrid

Neither of the links suggested from LiveCode approach a solution to the question and problem as asked . The problem is when in Form mode how to actually APPLY the template to the DataGrid. NONE of the instructions, tutorials, etc including the ones listed here, show one EXACTLY how to do this. I've ...

How to apply Row and Column Templates to Datgagrid

How does one apply Row Template to datagrid? How does one get objects to appear in the grid when they are first drug onto it, as per the instructions? This is a missing step between dragging in the controls and setting up the behavior. Please give succinct example(s) - script(s) that are understanda...
