My name is Jonathan Scott. I was using SuperCard for quite a
while. Hypercard before that. I recently moved over to RunRev. I'm
sorry to bug you with simple stuff, but I don't seem to be able to
find the answers on my own.
I have a stack that is supposed to write out text files. When I use
the normal file writing procedure (as shown below):
open file thisfile for write
write thisstuff to file thisfile
close file thisfile
I can get the files to show up, but they don't appear immediately.
Even if I reboot the computer, the files won't show up. The only way
to get them to show up is to do a search of my hard drive for the
file name and then, the computer will tell me about them.
So, I switched to the put thisstuff into URL "file:thisfile"
method. And that works a whole lot better.
Here's the problem though: I can't get either of these methods to
work in a standalone. When I save the stacks out as a standalone, no
files ever get written, no matter what I do.
send "mouseUp" to bg btn "Bob" doesn't work for me at all when I put
it in the openstack handler.
I researched it out on the net, and they said that this was a
problem with the preferences file getting corrupted. The suggested
advice was to throw away the preferences file. I did this, but, it
still didn't work. It goes without saying that it was also
unsuccessful in a standalone.
Thanks. I'm sorry to bother you with trivial matters.
P.S. I'm on a mac running Tiger. Thank you again.
