Accelerator key navigation & Win XP

Hello,

One of my students just asked me about this strange behavior and I told
him I'd ask all of you.

He's on XP and trying to use the accelerator-key navigation funtionality
from the View -> Go First, Go Previous, Go last...

He says that it will work a few times, then stop working and lock up; he
says further that sometimes he can get out of this state by first clicking
on the single-line icon in the message box, then the multiple-line icon,
then again the single-line icon, but sometimes that doesn't even work.

He's using I believe XP and Rev 2.7.

Does this ring any bells anywhere?

Thanks,

Judy

Re: More e-mail troubles

I've also had this problem recently; I think it took something like 10
days to get added to the improve-list.  But I was finally added.

OTOH, I've also had 24-hour turn-around with I think it's
accountws@... in making purchases for my students.

Re: More e-mail troubles

Dear Jacque,

Thanks very much for the info, you have certainly put my mind at rest 
regarding the possibility of a virus/hacker attack and/or the 
possibility of giving RunRev a bad name by sending unwanted List e-mails 
all over the world. It's just that I've never seen it before, even 
though I've participated on the U-R List on quite a number of occasions.

As for the mystery of Support not answering my e-mails, I have always 
sent my messages directly to Heather, and she has never suggested I 
should use <support at runrev.com> instead. Next time, I'll use this 
address and see if I get a bit more joy.

Best regards, and thanks again.

Bob

Re: Print from TL to BR - doesn't

In your usage here, Hershel, topLeft and bottomRight will be considered 
either unquoted literals or empty containers. There is nothing about 
them that refers to the card.

Try this instead:
print me from the topLeft of me to the bottomRight of me

I could be mistaken, but I think that's the problem.

Are you using Constellation? I had a feeling one time that it was
doing things twice if I called a function from it's message box, but
when I checked, I decided I must have been imagining things :-)

To test, make a button and use it to call your function.

Every object has the properties "topleft" and "bottomRight". You need
to specify which object's properties you want to use to limit the
printing.

Cheers,

Re: More e-mail troubles

Hi Bill!

Naturally, without being able to investigate further (and probably not 
having the knowledge) I cannot begin to diagnose the problem with your 
e-mail. However, my own experience might be relevant in some way.

When Rev "upgraded" their server last July, e-mails sent to me, 
particularly the U-R Lists, got bounced by my service provider. After a 
long investigation on my part, I managed to discover the reason. 
Roughly, it was this. My own e-mail server is old-fashioned (but 
normally reliable). But if it receives e-mails sent to the IP of my site 
domain (www.howsoft.com) rather than the IP of my e-mail server, it 
tries to bounce them. It appears that more modern receiving servers 
recognise this problem and make the necessary adjustments to get around 
it automatically. My old server, no. However, there is little doubt 
about the fact that what is involved is a configuration problem on the 
part of the sending server (i.e. RunRev in this case). This is proved by 
the fact that I never had any problem receiving e-mails from other 
sources using the same account. I still use it for all normal 
communications, without any problem at all.

I put this case to RunRev, but since it had not appeared in Bugzilla and 
been voted for by enough users (not true, I'm joking), they didn't want 
to take it further. So to be able to receive communications reliably 
from RunRev I was obliged to set up a new account using a different and 
more modern service provider to get around the problem. This is why 
although everybody else in the world sends their e-mails to my site at 
warren@... , everybody at Rev and on this list knows me as 
robertum@... .

RE: Counting Chars by ASCI Values

If you go the route of counting through each character vs. the clever
itemcount technique, and if there are a number of lines in the string you
want to parse, then you might save some time by filtering the lines for your
target character.

If you're looking to count a's then

filter myString with "*a*"

In this way, you'd almost instantly eliminate all lines that don't contain
"a".
This leaves you with a shorter string to iterate through.

Personally I prefer the itemcount technique.

Jonathan's question in another thread deserves its own thread.
