Re: Sorting data question

Looks like "grouping" is the desired outcome. As Craig mentioned above, sort by item <n> is simple. It is also non-destructive, and can be used iteratively to sort a previously sorted list into groups. This is probably your simplest way to tackle this at the moment. http://forums.livecode.com/viewto...

Re: OpenStack not runnning

Also check the card script - the openStack (and other) messages follow the message path through the script of card 1 before the stack script. (It is common to put openStack or preOpenStack etc handlers in card 1 script to avoid substacks without openStack handlers from triggering the mainstack handl...

Re: Copy Files in Standalone settings

When you add files in the standalone builder, they will be bundled on the mobile device in the specialFolderPath ("resources") location. This is not a writeable location. If you need to save edits to the text file, you must copy it to the specialFolderPath ("documents") folder. (First check if it ha...

Re: Action on return, enter and also on button click

Notwithstanding that there may be other considerations or approaches (eg on closeField), depending on your user interface and program flow, where you have multiple possible triggers of the same code, you can easily avoid code duplication by leveraging the message path. Create a handler in a suitable...

Re: mouseChunk in a loop

I'm not sure what you're trying to do, but wouldn't you be better off with the "selectionChanged" message and changing the colour of the "selectedChunk"?

Re: Convert with variable

Yes you can. But step through your code in the debugger and see the value of the it variable. When you convert the variable varTime, there is no "it" variable - the converted value is in the varTime variable already. You can either put "09:15 AM" into varTime convert varTime to dateItems add 7 to it...

Re: Disappearing windows and menus

But, the better solution to the Project Browser issues would be to fix the Project Browser issues. (The trouble is getting "issues" defined as reproducible bugs in the QC so they can be fixed. But I am sure they must be noticeable to more than just the odd user.)

Re: Disappearing windows and menus

Haha, I have used the application browser since forever, and it doesn't suffer the same problems as the PB. I hated the PB at first, and slowly grew to tolerate it because it was improved from its first instantiation, but the performance became very bad along with other aspects of the IDE during the...

Re: Disappearing windows and menus

Not ignoring bogs, but leaving that latest post aside for now, these IDE anomalies have been happening for a good while now on Windows, but with no way I have found to reproduce on demand. Except for the Project Browser disappearing, which it does almost ALL the time. I pretty much always have the b...

I would have appreciated your mentors Richmond. It's the posts from elissaamsmart and Robert Neale that look spamplanter material.

Re: Everyone needs a mentor

If I were a spammer, I see two potential mentors in this thread.
elissaamsmart or Robert Neale, could you give me some hints as to how to go about making placeholders on different forum sites to seem on topic and disguise the intent to populate with spam links.
