Running a Stack from the Web

Hello again...

When you choose "Check for Updates Online", Revolution has a stack posted on
their web site which they open by calling:

go stack URL "http://www.runrev.com/revolution/revupdates.rev" as modeless

Would anyone know why it works for them, but when I post a stack, I get
"stack is corrupted, check for ~ backup file"?  I have tried using the
Standalone Builder to make a stack... That didn't make a difference.  Got
any ideas?

Thanks,
Dan Friedman

Are you sure you have sent the stack to your server using FTP in BINARY mode
(not ASCII or autodetect)? Accidentally using ASCII mode is the most common
technique to mess up computer data. I use it all the time ;-)

Yes: set the substack-to-be's mainStack property.

For instance, if you have two main stacks called "Puffball" and "Hydrant",
and you want to make "Hydrant" into a substack of "Puffball", use this:

  set the mainStack of stack "Hydrant" to "Puffball"

Re: Socket buffer size

i don't think you can set it per se, but you can always tell it to wait for
a certain amount of chars (or a sequence of chars)

on readDataFromSocket pSocketPointer
  read from socket pSocketPointer until 20 chars with message "gotData"
end readDataFromSocket

on gotData pSocketPointer, pSocketData
  -- do the processing of your socket here
end gotData

Anyone know of a way to set the socket receive buffer size for REV?

I would pay for a seperate version (i.e. the Pocket PC version of Revolution) if that's what you have to do! Doesn't anyone else see the value in this capability? Think 'wireless' Pocket PC and maybe the light bulbs will go on...

We're looking at these, though Palm really has a very different OS so is
most unlikely.  However the other one wouldn't be so hard and might well
happen if we get enough requests.

Kind regards,

Kevin

Yep. Even better if it were like an output module, with the ability to
select PocketPC as the build type.

Character sets and Windows

Does Revolution support international character sets (encoding) on Windows
platform? I ask this because a field shows different language fonts without
a problem on a Mac, but the same stack on Windows does not.

TIA,

Help needed with popup menu...

I am planing to program a popup menu (hierarchical if
possible) which interacts with a locked field, or the
clicked line of this field, or even an item of this
clicked line.

I have understood that I need at least an intermediary
button with this menu property in order to simulate
a popup field.

How can I:

- choose a font size for this popup menu?
- choose a loc for the poping (or pre-select an item)?
- get some result of the user choosen item (sub item)
of this menu?

font size : select your object with the pointer tool, choose the font 
size you want in the text menu
pre-select an item : look at the menuhistory property in the 
transcript dictionary
get some result of the user choosen item : get the selectectedtext of 
your object

For a hierarchical menu :
type the parent item then return and tab and type your submenu : it 
will appear as a submenu.

cheers

Hello,

I'm here again with printing problem :

1) is it possible to get a preview of your print (to save some paper and ink) ?

2) I've a fld in column (tabstops). When I print the field, the
