Do existing Data Grids get automatically upgraded?

When switching to a newer version of LiveCode (which sometimes contains bug fixes or new features for data grids), do data grids in our existing stacks get automatically upgraded when opened with the new version of LiveCode? If not, how do we upgrade existing data grids?

Hi Ocean,

All the datagrids group you can include in your projects are linked to the datagrid library. This library is the place of any bug fixes and new features. There is no need to update the datagrids groups in stacks when you are installing a new version of LiveCode with datagrid changes, as all the datagrids group inherits of the changes of the datagrid library.

If you have built standalone applications using datagrids, you have to rebuilt them, to have the benefice of the changes in the datagrid library, as this library is included in any LC applications requiring it.


Best,
