Hi. Never thought about this. But I made a DG, and put this into a button: on mouseup repeat 300 put random() & tab after temp end repeat set the dgText of grp 1 to temp end mouseup No problem. With a horizontal scrollbar, I can zoom to each side of the DG. But If I try to

Anybody besides me having occasional crashes while printing in LC 9? I don't have a recipe but it happens every once in a while in both LC 9.0.1 and LC 9.0.2 rc1. In the IDE and in a standalone (Mac). I have filed bug report 21473 (first reported in August) and have added crash reports from

Max number of columns in a datagrid?

Hi all. I'm importing a csv file with a LOT of columns, and I am running into an issue with setting the dgProp ["columns"] of the datagrid. It's choking on the number of columns it seems. What is the max? Bob S ___ use-livecode mailing list

It does it in the ide too. The data grid can display 10 lines of data at a time and with very small data sets it will work, although slugishly. I just created a stripped down stack that demonstrates the issue and with a few hundred lines it will open but only display 10 lines and that’s it. On

You need to do two things: - add code in your app to handle the "urlWakeUp" message, see the dictionary entry and http://lessons.livecode.com/m/4069/l/58672-using-custom-url-schemes - add entries in the app's plist to tell the operating system what file types your app can handle, see

I'll chip in and point out that the implicit conversion caused significant hiccups in figuring out the offsets issues -- several people (including me) were fooled by the fact that conversion to UTF-32 results in binary data, but can be transparently treated as text. Or maybe I'm

This isn't about strongly typed variables though, but about when (correct) conversion is possible. LC throws an error if you implicitly ask it to convert the wrong kind of string to a number - for example, add 45 to "horse". (Obviously multiplication is fine: the answer would be "45 horses".)

I'm not grasping the import of the question here, but it seems to me that the question is about what happens "under the hood", in relation to the format of the data as it is exposed to any I/O. It seems to me that in this context it's academic. If there is a problem with what's going on "under
