Re: RevBrowser Scrolling

Hi Larry, I'm on win 7 LC 7.1.2 and I see the scrollbars (while in the IDE) the toggle btn works as expected. Was able to scroll down and press the Run Screener button got the Command Successful (takes 20-30 sec) message but the Save Data locked up the stack with 6K+ records. Maybe I don't understan...

Re: Total newb question: selecting from a list

It's just basically "telling" the computer what to do.
Always keep that in mind!
With the "English language like language" it is easy to just think of what you are trying to do and then check the Dictionary (your new best friend) it holds lots of hints to get to where you want to be.

Re: Total newb question: selecting from a list

Hi cliffale7, While this lesson isn't exactly what you are asking for http://lessons.livecode.com/m/2592/l/21424-combining-random-text-strings it does uses random selection ("any") and text storage.

Re: Hiding and un-hiding a Card & skipping when hidden

It is a common practice to use hidden windows with controls (like a text box) to "store" lots of data inside the App (and avoid using resources or external files). Same as in liveCode. Though we do use external file (.txt, .db, .dat, etc.) if we need that information updated in a standalone. Now if...

Re: How to move everything

Rats! Should have been easy. "Last whatever" is the highest layer control of type "whatever". I guess that when one groups it doesn't send it to the "layer top". Hey... the dictionary says it should work. Tip: To refer to the newly-created group, use the last keyword: group button "Yes" and button "...

Re: How to move everything

Hi Michael,
acceleratedRendering does work on iOS, just the card doesn't move up when the keyboard comes up like it does on Android.
Yes, grouping is the answer I've used.
