Ie instead of 'send command to me in 10 seconds,' I wanted to write 'send command to me in variable seconds. This is because the...

Re: name myswl table from variable

Thanks Bangkok Sorry I'm a bit of an amateur at this. The reason I posted in the first place was because it didn't work and then I googled a bit and from what I read it suggested that you couldn't use variables to name tables in Mysql, unless you used method statements. So from that point on I was a...

Re: name myswl table from variable

Hi Bangkok Thanks for your reply. Sorry my post was a bit brief (I took out the bits I didn't think were relevant), the whole command is below. the 2 variables are global. The put command shows the right name. command databaseCreateTables put tclientname & taccountkey into tTableName put tTableName ...

Re: push notifications

Hi dunbarx Thanks for your reply, I had already done that. To be more specific, the best information I can find is the seemingly out dated livecode lesson referring to GCM not FCM. So, I looked more generally at how to set it for android phones, but all the other information talks about downloading ...

Re: customizing the answer dialogue box

Hi Bogs

The reason is because I wanted the dialog boxes to match the colour scheme of the rest of the app, but I understand this isn't possible?

If it was that would be perfect.

Kind regards

Paul

PS I wil try your suggestions, many thanks

Re: customizing the answer dialogue box

Hi Jean-Marc and Klaus Many thanks for your replies. I googled around and found that I could use sub-stacks instead of the dialogue boxes so that I could customize their appearance, which has worked a treat. But unsurprisingly I have hit a slight snag - the only thing I can't seem to do is fix/loc t...

Re: datagrid joy

Hi Zryip TheSlug

I will try what you said.

I presume that means that I should write the scripts for the buttons etc... in the fill in data script.

Kind regards
