Re: Resources and submissions

Hi Neil, The first error is concerned with the robot control code submission. On pressing the "Submit Program" button I get an alert stating the following: "Upload successful. Confirmation ID is: revdberr, Database Error: No such function: LAST_INSERT-_ID" Since posting initially and then replicatin...

Resources and submissions

First, congratulations on LCU. Most impressive. I am currently using the trial version and this indeed could be the reason for my questions. 1. Submissions - Don't work. Get db error when I have tried. If this is a trial version error then a more helpful error message would be good. 2. Resources - i...

Re: Any chance of a minimize control?

Extra thought.

If you did do something like this you could move all the buttons on the bottom bar of the current plugin to the new "title bar" removing the need for the bottom bar.

Re: Any chance of a minimize control?

Hi Bill, Option 1 is workable. Not because of the minimise button, but because it won't stay on top of other windows. What I was actually thinking of though is similar to palettes in other programs like Photoshop where there is a disclosure triangle on the title bar and clicking it minimises the pal...

Any chance of a minimize control?

Hi Bill, Just started using your plugin and am very impressed. I am doing a project that is a quantum jump in complexity to all my utility projects and being able to add task comments to my code and find them easily is a real godsend. My one thought though was that it would be nice to be able to min...

Re: Data Grid - set the bg colour of a text chunk

yes.
I can see I need to not be so quick to ignore me in my coding :?

Thanks again.

AAhhh!
As they said in a song that was a hit many years ago over here, "ego is not a dirty word."

Thank you so much.

Data Grid - set the bg colour of a text chunk

I am using a Data Grid to list the results of a user search on text. The results are returned using the FORM Data Grid with a field for each of the section heading (prefix_head), the line number of the found text (line_num) and the line of found text itself (the_results). I wanted to enhance this by...

Data Grid - Images not sticking

I have a data grid in FORM form and have an image being placed with each record. Following the example given in the Data Grid lessons everything works except for one thing. The image doesn't stick. If I have three records, only the first record displays the image BUT it is the image of the 3rd recor...

Re: scrolling an rTree in the same way as a text field

Thanks Mark, Set me on the right track. I had inadvertantly stopped this behaviour in my text field by trapping the rawkeydown as I didn't want any text added or modified in the field but wanted user to still be able to select text. Seems when the field has its text locked only lines can be selected...

scrolling an rTree in the same way as a text field

When I place the cursor over a text field and scroll (i.e use a scroll wheel or two finger drag) the text in the field scrolls. If I do the same thing over an rTree object it doesn't. I have to actually click and drag on the scrollbars to get the "field" scrolling. Can I get it to behave like a text...

being prompted to save changes to "rTreeEngine"

Hi, I have installed and registered rTree in an application I am making. All seems fine so far with the exception that when I quit Livecode after working on the app I am presented with the rTree nag window and being asked if I want to save changes. I am working within the GLX framework and so it cou...

Re: arrow key control

Hi Mats, I noticed my original code also left something to be desired if the highlighted node was without children. I expected the parent node to close but alas it didn't. So I modified the left arrow case to close the parent in such a case as well as move the highlight to the parent. Thus.. ... cas...

Re: arrow key control

Excellent! Works like a charm. I had initially coded for the rawkeyDown handler but then saw the Arrow key one and changed it. I had forgotten to redraw the tree through. This was the key to the Collapse All script too. Once I despatched a redraw it worked perfectly. I guess the example in the docs ...
