I just have one last question on this. I am going to program it so the fields in the substack save to a file. Since I am going to leve this substack as non visible should I put the code to load and save to file in the main stack or can I have it in the substack? Do you want a substack or a separate...

What I WANT to know is: What is the praise for Valentina all about ? That's not one I can answer. Never used Valentina myself. My own custom data management engine serves me well for mos desktop apps, larger data sets are covered adequately with the pubic domain SQLite, and on the server I use MySQ...

Most web hosting companies offer MySQL for free on their servers. Hosting companies like Dreamhost and JaguarPC also support custom compiled CGIs, such as Rev. So you can use Rev on the client desktop, have MySQL on the server, and even use Rev CGIs as needed.

It's quite possible to make a 5GL in Rev, well within the license requirements. The licensing restriction prevent people from delivering the full range of Rev scripting to end-users, but since your interest is in provide a very focused set of tasks personally I see no conflict and it should be relat...

If you don't want to declare globals in each handler you use them you might consider accessors for those. For example, if you needed to access a global called gUserName you might put these in a library for all your scripts to access: on SetUserName pUserName global gUserName put pUserName into gUser...

Re: State/history/undo-redo support in Rev Apps

Ah, Undo. Few things look so simple to the end-user yet are so complex under the hood. :) Rev provides a wide variety of properties and methods to access and store those properties to accommodate nearly any form of state management needed. These include both data relating to the appearance of object...

Re: Woah

It would have been common sense for the preferences to be set up to auto save and auto archive by default. I don't use GLX2 so I can't comment on its functionality specifically, but in general I'm not sure that auto-save should be on by default in most apps that provide such an option. One of the c...

That's awesome. Thanks. I'll start putting some of my own short scripts together, too, and then maybe post a bunch of them in the education section of the forum for anyone else to use in a similar manner. That's a great idea. Maybe I could add a section to RevNet for examples like this (in Rev see ...

I see. To help get you going I started to write a simple slide show example for you, but it took longer than 10 lines. Here it is anyway - it's very crude, but may serve as a starting point for more complete things: -- -- Slide Show example script -- -- on mouseUp -- Get path to folder: answer folde...

Like Mark pointed out, trying to fit everything you want to do within just 10 lines requires some tricky scripting, and many tasks can't be done at all within that limit. Rev offers a 30-day trial to get folks started, during which there are no limits at all. And there's Rev Media for just $49, whic...

> The point is that there should be a simple way to stop mouseDown > and MouseUp script when you doubleclick... Thanks for the explanation. The problem, if we can call it that, is that the mouse does go down and up prior to a mouseDoubleUp, so the messages appear to be firing correctly. In my own UI...

If you could create the simplest possible example stack which illustrates this issue, I'd be happy to dig into it and see if I could coerce it to do what you want.

In the meantime, if all else fails there may be a way to use the flushEvents function to purge unwanted messages....

It does not really matter... It just might. While I've only been working with this language for 12 years, in that short time I've helped a few people find acceptable workarounds for things not too different from this. Could I trouble you to describe what it is your UI does? And how closely does you...

Are you sure you want mouseDoubleDown rather than mouseDoubleUp?
