Docs for Table Field?

Post by WiilCA » Mon Sep 17, 2018 8:16 am

In re-creating a project from SuperCard, I need to use a Table field.
A simple table should work, as long as I can set the column widths.

I cannot find full documentation for a Table Field anywhere, not even in the user guide.


Where can I find full documentation for Table Fields?

Thanks, -Will

Personally I feel that the Table Field is LiveCode's "Great, White Hope" which they abandoned as they went hell-for-leather for the DataGrid: which is a pity as both incarnations of the DataGrid are horribly complicated.

So Table Fields have been left woefully under-documented; in the in-built documentation at least.

HOWEVER, with 260 responses to the search "Table Field" here, I could be (pleasantly) wrong:

I like table fields a lot, and use them a lot.

But there is an anomaly with them that must be addressed. It is if they are ill, but there is a pill that makes them better. See this:

The good news is that once they swallow the pill, they are good to go.
