Suggestion for next Q&A session

Post by kendonnelly » Sun Mar 30, 2014 2:49 pm

When I selected the 3rd db select button in my group during a run, it did not work properly, and I realized there was an issue with how I initially set up in the group. I could see that it was not listed the same as the other 2 in the project browser. When I tried to fix it I messed it up completely and had to delete the works and start again.

Could you take a bit of time to demonstrate how to edit groups, such as add a button to an existing one, and how to move things about in the project browser? It seems to me that I should have been able to move that button into the proper place/hierarchy, but I failed miserably in my experimental approach.

Hi Ken,

There are multiple methods to managing layers in LiveCode with the project browsers being just one of these methods. I will be happy to briefly discuss working with group during wednesdays session and will aim to show you how to create, edit, and delete groups.

In the mean time, there is some great documentation on LiveCode groups available here-

Kind Regards,
