Thanks Colin. I discovered that right after I posted (as usual). :-) I have two buttons, an up and a down button, which move a line in a datagrid up or down respectively, and the buttons reposition themselves to be next to the hilitedLine whenever the datagrid gets a selectionChanged message.

Yeah (sigh) it's down to the fact that you can *get* the short name of something, but you can't *set* the short name of something. So I need to special case that one property :-( It's been an annoyance forever, but I always put off fixing it because it offends me. But since you brought it up

I found it much easier to move away from Filemaker when I groked their licensing. Seems I had to pay a licensing fee for every copy of every app I distributed, even when it was for internal consumption. That and their idea of coding is filling in dialogs. In fact, I went looking for a hypercard

I went ahead and fixed this. In my working copy of Navigator the property is displayed as being "name" but displays the short name. Editing it sets the name. I made some fundamental changes to the way Navigator works over the past few days so I'm going to use it for a bit before releasing it. gc

Nested Datagrid Hack Broke App Building

Looks like the hack I have in place for nesting datagrid behaviors has effectively broken the standalone app builder for my app. I can't use a prior version because all my datagrid behavoirs throughout my app are nested. I can't just use the community version of Livecode and have my technicians

Yep, FileMaker isn't perfect, but it does naming right, and almost nothing else does. Also, I'm pretty sure you can type to code now (and for some years). On Mon, Oct 1, 2018 at 3:52 PM Bob Sneidar via use-livecode < use-livecode@lists.runrev.com> wrote: > I found it much easier to move away

There is the screenMouseLoc, which is the cursor’s location on the whole screen. To move it to be on a button I guess you would add the left and top of the card window, to the x and y position you want to move to. > On Oct 1, 2018, at 2:36 PM, Bob Sneidar via use-livecode > wrote: > > Has
