Thank you, I'm not surprised you knew the answer. So, one link is okay but two are not? We're using paragraph metadata where we can, but in most cases it isn't possible. We had to abandon the browser widget because we need field properties that are not supported there. It's a challenge,

The htmltext of a field is based on HTML3 or before. In HTML 3/4 a span can not contain two links, in HTML5 yes. [So a browser widget does what you explicitly wish to have.] Or if you set the metadata of the -tag instead (= set the metadata of line x of fld 1 to "metadata1"). > JLG wrote: > If

Very useful post Trevor, thank you. Can you confirm that the notarized standalone does NOT open in Mac OSX 10.9-10.11? I could not find this info in the Apple official docs, but I believe this is the case. Unfortunately my old mac that ran OSX 10.10 has been upgraded to High Sierra, so I cannot

HTML spans with links

2020-02-06 Thread J. Landman Gay via use-livecode
If I set the htmlText of a field to HTML that contains a span, and if that span also contains an anchor or href link, LC separates the span into multiple ones. For example, a field's htmlText set to this: This is some text that contains the metadata.href="#fn">linkOne And here is some more

I know how you feel. But I'm hoping the LC team will help us out with this, they surely know the complexities. I'm looking forward to a standalone builder that will relieve the stress that Apple puts on its developers. On 2/6/20 12:11 PM, David V Glasgow via use-livecode wrote: I have to say
