Newbie: database tutorial

Hi

I'm new using Revolution, but I used Real Basic. I'm looking for a 
step-by-step tutorial to create a database app.

Thanks.

Well, THAT su... er... is less than optimal.

It isn't a camcorder, but it is firewire.

What class of device works best then?

And, this is also the case with the "QT" method?

Re: Set focusable property via script?

  "locktext" and "traversalOn" still allows cut and clear  (if you have menu
scripts for these of course, which you may have for other fields). I select
"Disabled" as well in the properties if I don't want the fields altered at
all or text copied.

If I want to allow copy from the field I set "locktext" and "traversalOn"
and catch cut and clear in the scripts.

altBrowser for Mac

Well,

Chris decided to jump in the MacOSX development environment (pls don't 
tell anyone or else he loses his  card carrying Linux privledges) and 
has crafted a first version of altBrowser for MacOSX. It's not yet 
completed, but it is working (or so he tells me...I'm at WWDC right now).

So a quick question for those interested. We're pretty sure we're not 
going to support the Mac before OSX. Is that a deal killer for those of 
you interested?

Also, Chris wants to create a Linux altBrowser as well.

Lastly, we've just completed Mac and PC zip externals for 
compressing/decompressing to zip files / folders. We'll be hoping soon 
to have something up for those interested.

best,

Chipp

btw, funny thing. Richard Gaskin and I are here at WWDC representing RR. 
Richard saw the new dashboard presentation and decided that instead of 
waiting until 2005, he'd whip up a version inside RR here at the show. 
He just about completed it before time ran out..today.

I really feel for Konfabulator-- Apple's done their best to screw them, 
and funny thing is how a lot of developers here think "Hey, it's good to 
have competition!" Richard also previewed his Devolutions package which 
he threatens to release almost as often as we do the Mac version of

Not for me! OSX sounds great.

For an embedded browser, requiring OS X seems pretty reasonable. 
Consider that Safari doesn't run under OS 9, Internet Explorer is 
discontinued, and Mozilla isn't a great option there either- and I've 
never even seen an embedded browser control anywhere on OS 9 (although 
it may exist). I'm guessing Chris would spend at least 3 times the 
effort supporting OS 9 than any of Windows, OS X or Linux...

Of course that's easy for me to say, since I haven't run OS 9 in a 
couple of years...

Sorry to dwell, but this is a final, and crucial function of my 
software.

Is there a known-to-work analog to digital converter that is compatible 
with VideoGrabber on Windows XP? USB or Firewire? The one I have a 
"Dazzle Hollywood Edge" does not seem compatible in either "VFW" or 
"QT" modes.

I need to be able to take composite or S-Video and convert it to a 
videoGrabber compatible format. If I can find one that works, I can 
recommend that one. I currently don't have anything proving it works at 
all under Windows XP.

OSX works with everything... of course.

Jan,

Will bug #511 be addressed in this rewrite, or anytime
soon if a rewrite is not forthcoming?

OS X alone is just fantastic. I'm waiting here by my emailbox with my 
hands open ready to receive it.

Woohoo!!!
