Re: Large number of images in a data grid

After I responded to you last night I decided to write a database cursor behavior for the DataView control I recently made available. You can read about it in this thread: http://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?f=108&t=31987 A DataView is a more modern DataGrid and is more efficient. It is also ea...

Re: DataView and DataView Tree Levure Helpers

I've added another DataView helper named "DataView Database Cursor Helper" and updated the demo app. This helper adds a `dvCursor` property to a DataView along with a number of other properties. You open a database cursor, assign it to the DataView, and then the DataView will automatically move thro...

DataView and DataView Tree Levure Helpers

Hi folks, Over the holiday break I took time to package up some UI controls I use in my own projects and make them available as helpers for Levure apps*. The controls are named "DataView" and "DataView Tree". The DataView is a leaner, more efficient DataGrid Form. It allows you to efficiently displa...

Re: App Updater helper for Levure

Regarding your question about knowing if the updater window is open - Sparkle sends a message before and after the window opens. The LCB code will repost these messages using `sparkleWillShowModalAlert` and `sparkleDidShowModalAlert`. WinSparkle only sends a notification if a message is found. The L...

Re: App Updater helper for Levure

When you prepared 3.0.1 did you reset the `build` number to a number lower than it was with version 3.0.0? The build number should always go up, never down:

Re: md5digest of large files, how reliable is it?

I don't know Richard. I would guess not. I've only used it in situations where I ran the same function on all files.
