Re: "on opencard" handler

What happens if you use

preOpenCard

instead of

openCard ?

Also you say at the begining of your post 'A stack's "on opencard"..' Just to check you're putting the openCard in the cards script and not the stacks?

Re: How to think about programming with Livecode

Hi Sano, I think the way you are looking at this would make updating the characteristics when they change a nightnare! Why not put all the details into a database and then turn your search for say "chocolate, < 30 fat" into a SQL statement to return the list, then if entries need changing, change in...

Re: Advice? Almost Sold my First LiveCode Program!

Have a look at section 7 of the LiveCode licence. It (apart from section a) basically says "sorry mate...but you cannot hold us responsible!" 7.

Re: Advice? Almost Sold my First LiveCode Program!

Hi sanoski, I think the level of support you offer (if any) depends on how the company take over the product and whether they supply this as a free or paid for application. How you proceed will also depend on if the company purchase LiveCode and compile your source code or if you supply the final co...

Re: Displaying an image from another stack

Hi Pebah,

Try this:

In the main stack:

on openStack
put image id 1003 of stack "mysub-stack" into image id 1004 of this stack
end openStack

This assumes you have a sub stack named "mysub-stack" containing an Image with the id 1003 and an empty Image Area on your main stack of id 1004.

Re: How to ignore IE Script Error with revBrowser?

Hi Alex,

Whoops. just realised you meant sites you have no control over.

More of a problem. You might try passing a web page to an I-frame in the browser. You should be able to trap errors that way.

I'll do a few experiments and get back to you.

Re: How to ignore IE Script Error with revBrowser?

Hi Alex, Try using this: <head> <script type="text/javascript"> function noError(){return true;} window.onerror = noError; </script> </head> This creates a function that always returns true, and then whenever an error occurs, calls this function (returning true and suppressing the error). It's not g...
