Re: How to apply Row and Column Templates to Datgagrid

I have version 7 also. Here is my first screen when I drag a datagrid into the project window. DataGrid 1.png How are items placed into/onto the datagrid so that they show up and are usable in the project, is the question. I've been through lots of tutorials and so forth without finding usable answe...

Re: Make Hyperlinks active

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
launch URL the clickText
end mouseUp
I put this in the script for the field. Seems to work so far.

Thanks all. :)

Re: Quality Beginners Manuals, Tutorials & Samples

I downloaded the User's Guide initially as the logical first place to start.

I'm not here to attack the present offering, just asking for something better, i.e., easier for the beginner.

Re: Quality Beginners Manuals, Tutorials & Samples

I've read way too much of the users guides. That's why the request. I'm tech savvy but not a programmer, and found them difficult, to unusable. Not basic enough.
Interested in mobile and desktop software.
And yes, mostly database oriented.

I came into LiveCode after being in technology all my work life, but in hardware, networking, and technical support, where documentation is deep, where the success of a product can depend on whether a field tech can use the manual. There was many a newbie who got up to speed fast due to availability...

Re: How to apply Row and Column Templates to Datgagrid

I managed to get this one to work but can't seem to start a new one from scratch. I had this same problem at first. The big stumbling block here in initially setting up the datagrid is where and what is the field that actually controls what you see. In the Row Template there are multiple fields when...

Re: Make Hyperlinks active

No buck is passed to you. I need all my bucks and then some! :) That's why I'm still working after 65.

Went to the dictionary on linkText but it doesn't say what to do if text is variable.

Re: Make Hyperlinks active

The question was correct. The question of whether this was a datagrid or not needed to have come first. :wink:

Re: Make Hyperlinks active

Yes I did. I followed the instruction in the tutorial. Used the message box. I tried where suggested which didn't work. The one post says they put it in the stack script. "for example, the handler below was placed in the stack script.".

As to what I "expect" - Workable answers. :wink:
