datgrid display sort of correct [solved]

I've got this datagrid that's drawing the right thing but it's kind of like it's own graphic on top of the default datagrid. In the attached image, I resized the window a bit to expose the difference between the stuff that's being drawn and the default datagrid "underneath." This version has scrollb...

Re: a variety of things

jacque, awesome, thanks that worked perfectly :) I just searched for livecode.rev & livecode7.rev and deleted them both. It's entirely possible that my laptop still thinks it might possibly have to deal with an external monitor since I had one for a long time. But after deleting those two preference...

a variety of things

Originally this was going to be a question about why "first word" wasn't working in a switch case. Before posting I figured I'd try one or two more things. While trying those things, the script editor disappeared, and then I was going to ask how to recover it. Before posting that, I found that it wa...

Re: Meeting: Oct 2, Pasadena

Howdy, I'm down in the South Bay area, so about 30-60 minutes from Pasadena. I'd like to start attending your meetings. Is there a mailing list or do I just need to keep an eye on the forum here?

Re: graph theory

I'm not really sure. Maybe? I think I can follow it enough to see that it's trying to find the shortest path between a beginning state and an end state, which seems like it must be walking a graph (each unique board being a state and the move transitioning between boards being a link), but I don't s...

graph theory

I've got a network of nodes and links that I want to work with. It's turning out to be hard to search for any previous work anyone might have done on the subject because words like "graph" and "network" and whatnot are so popular in other subjects. Has anyone seen anything in livecode where someone ...

Re: viewing invisible characters in variable watcher

Sorry, yes, I am indeed using 7.0. So far, the number of characters used to "split" doesn't seem to matter, just the type of character. Three characters works just fine: on mouseUp put "1,2 , 3,4 , 5,6 , 7,8" into testString split testString by " , " -- split testString by "," -- put ", " into tDeli...

Yeah, LiveCode is interpreting that as a variable and throws out an error. Cuz it's not punctuation, maybe?

Re: viewing invisible characters in variable watcher

You can only split by a single character. If you use only a single character for the split commands, the problem goes away. I thought I understood what you meant, but it looks like splitting by ", " works exactly like it should. on mouseUp put "1,2, 3,4, 5,6, 7,8" into testString split testString b...

Re: empty clickLine

OMG, is that what's happening? You're right, when I remove the breakpoint and just add a line printing the contents of tLine & tLine2 into the end of the field all of the correct information shows up just like it should. Is that really it? Is the clickLine trying to pull information out about the va...

empty clickLine

At least, I assume it must be returning empty since LiveCode isn't coming up with any errors and it recognizes all of the words I used. But, clickLine should be empty in this case, right? This is in a locked field with a few lines of text: (I grabbed the commented code thinking I could just modify i...

Re: viewing invisible characters in variable watcher

I parsed a string that didn't involve any returns into an array Then I un-parsed the array back into text The variable watcher just showed the expected content in the element, but when the whole array was turned back into text one of the elements had a return in it, causing two lines where one was e...
