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...

Re: CRUD SQLite example

I am looking ad the SQLite opening it with LC 8.1.6. Looking at the scripts for the buttons no problem When opening the same stack in LC ver 9.0.4 I am unable to open any button script. It is as if I cannot go into edit mode. What could be the reason for this? Is this on Windows? It sometimes happe...

Re: Everyone needs a mentor

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.

Re: JsonToArray and ArrayToJson on LiveCode Server

I am going out on a limb here, but I don't think you will have success in this endeavour. The merg... externals are mostly written for iOS deployment and the specific architecture differences won't translate. If you want a single codebase, it would be better to adapt the standalone to use fastJson i...

Re: Getting started with a web application

I think ghettocottage was asking a more simple question, as in do you want a multi-user interactive website (such as this forum)? Or more like an app that runs remotely on the target device but is populated by data stored in a web -enabled database? The first option, with a user accessing via a web ...

Re: Suspend bluetooth - mergBLE?

I *think* he does not wamt any interactions between LiveCode and the CGM software. Only to have an app that can turn off Bluetooth (which will stop the alarm) and turn it ln again 30 minutes later (which will restore the app's monitoring).

On iOS, yes.

Re: Access Raspberry Pi to read data.

You may alternatively/additionally find that using "open process" is a possible solution. You could potentially then "write <the commands you need to send> to process tThePiConsole" (pseudo) When I get a chance (maybe 2027) I will have a test here and see if I can get any results to pass on. But don...

Re: Insert string into string at random position

Erm, if you put the + 1 inside the parentheses so that the random pool is enlarged, then you can just subtract 1 from the index and not have to shift the one to zero.
