In my now 3 year long quest to write just ONE useable Rev program, I was
close but ran into something that I just can't figure out. I have a
checkbutton on a configuration stack (separate from the main stack) and
a global variable that I set the hilite of the button to (mostly so I
don't need long convoluted descriptions to get to the state from the
When it comes time to check the button state, I "put" the global
variable and it says it's true. The very next line is:
if gSaveInputPath then
-- save the path to the file just used for next time
This FAILS every time (I added an else clause to display "not saving
path" just to make sure I was actually getting to the code). I also tried
if gSaveInputPath is true then.... and that fails too. If I check my
global variables, it is in fact showing "true" so I can't figure out
what's (not) going on.
PS: Thanks to Jim Ault for you response on the field question. You were
right that I'm not using groups on various cards/stacks to display the
same information in different places. I'll give your suggestions a shot
as soon as I get this (hopefully simpler) problem resolved.
