I've been trying to get my head around custom properties (as in save the variables and reopen the stack to see the variables in a field--thank you @Jacque for mentioning this ability). That seems to be working. I'm still having brain fog over custom properties, but for now I'm happy.
I've been working with one dimensional arrays and, again, I think I'm understanding them. So there is more good news from your lost in the woods of LC newbie.
My greater issue is that, for my little test application, I need to use multidimensional arrays. However, when I try to recreate the lesson that is given on the LC site,http://lessons.livecode.com/m/4071/l/21 ... dable-form ,I am having no success. I've typed the code in many times. I've copied it in too. I figured that I was making a mistakes in the code. I've tried putting the function and other code within the lesson into the Handler on openCard and on preOpenCard as well as into a button on the card. Also tried the message box as indicated in the lesson. I simply can't get anything to run. I'm not understanding what is wrong. Is there a friendly wayfarer that can help me find the path in these woods again?
I call the function/handler (vocabulary is the hidden monster in the LC woods) using this bit of code from a button object. Apparently the code was left out of the original lesson and someone else caught it in the comments section.
Code: Select all
When I run the code in the message box, I get nothing--and empty message box. Somehow, the data isn't getting read into the program.
Thanks again. I hope that your day is/was "most excellent".
