Re: delete the customproperty (of a card)

2018-01-01 Thread Dr. Hawkins via use-livecode
For removing a single property while leaving the rest intact, I have a
library routine rmProp.

on rmProp prop, tgt

--remove a property from the basic property set

local props

if tgt is empty then

put the long id of me nto tgt

end if

put the customProperties of tgt into props

repeat for each word prp in prop

delete variable props[prp]

end repeat

set the customProperties of tgt to props

end rmProp

Thanks all. Particularly, Glen Bojsza for the offlist sample stack and
explanatory video.

divn't work?

If you know the name of the customProp . . .

one can EMPTY the customProp very easily indeed:

set the "XYZ" of card id 1002 to empty

that does, howeve, mean that the prop "XYZ" is still 'there':
I'm not sure whether that is important.

In the DICTIONARY is states this:

"You can delete an object's custom property sets by setting the object's 
customPropertySets to empty."


So I wonder why this:
