Re: Different alphabetical orders

Hmmm. We need to sort by more than just the first char. So let's substitute them all by brute force. The example custom alphabet was " ABGDEZH..." We substitute a normal "A" for the first char in it, ("A" changes to "A") We substitute a normal "B" for the second char in it, ("B" changes to "B") We ...

Different alphabetical orders

(different from the Latin order, I mean) In Latin Alphabets, the order is... well, you know. In other alphabets the alphabetical order is usually different. In greek aplphabet the order is (assuming we are using a latin transliteration) ABGDEZHQIKLMNX... Is there an already made function to sort str...

Re: Popup menus with several layers of sub-choices

I understand what you say, Klaus, and this is probably the right frame of mind for most occasions, but in other cases I think it depends on context. Say you've made an app to classify every object crossing the road on wheels (you're a cop with too much free time). You choose from a cascade menu like...

Re: Popup menus with several layers of sub-choices

Hi,

This looks like the right way to go, but as it stands, the "menupick" seem not to be able to choose the right picking (it does return a choice form the menu, but usually not the right one)

Re: Popup menus with several layers of sub-choices

Sorry to return to this, but it seems like I am missing something completely obvious. Now, using the tab-system to create hierarchies of submenus is cristal clear and works like a charm, no matter how deep you go into submenus. Choice A [tab]Subchoice A1 [tab][tab]sub-subchoice A1a [tab]Subchoice A2...

Re: Popup menus with several layers of sub-choices

This way to build hierarchical menus seem great Choice 1 \t subchoice A \t \t subchoice A1 \t \t subchoice A2 Choice 2 \t subchoice B \t \t subchoice B1 \t \t subchoice B2 Choice 13 \t subchoice C \t \t subchoice C1 but the menuPick message only triggers when you choose the last option of a hierarch...

Re: Popup menus with several layers of sub-choices

HC? Never heard of it. I was great it was cool it was… never mind, it was one century ago and now it's the time of LiveCode. DunbarX... where did I heard this name… Try this in the contents of any of the pulldown, popup, etc, buttons: Choice1/|1 Choice2/|2 choice2a/|3 choice3/|4 Choice4/|5 Choice5/...

Popup menus with several layers of sub-choices

Hi all! What's the way in Livecode to build popup butons with lists of choices containing nested subchoices (and sus-subchoices, etc)? In the image I uploaded you can see a very simple example of what I mean: a menu with several options and sub options multipleChoices and sub-choices.png Back in the...

Re: Combining lists

Hi Magice, Maybe I didn't make myself clear. If I do what wou are proposig put listA & listB & listC into tNewVariable then I end with a new variable tNewVariable which is a concatenation of lists (i.e. A+B+C) but what I am looking for is a way to obtain a new list with as many columns as there are ...

Combining lists

Hi, this is my first message to this forum. As a way of presentation I'll say that I am prety new to LiveCode (which I find terrific) but a long user of HyperCard and more recently of Python3. I purchased LiveCode long ago, but only when I heard it was going opencode I decided to give it a good try....
