Thank you for your suggestions last week. Started building my application again from scratch. At the end of Module 1 (of four) I tested the Print function and it worked!
Scenario. Ten Cards provide theory Training. Ten Cards provide multiple choice Questions. Last card has a field named "Results" = 23 Cards.
As a User clicks on an answer each button sends a message line by line to the last cards field named "Results"
on mouseUp-- Each Question of ten sends a message like this
Put "Correct" into field "A"
Get field "Results" of card "Module1Results" -- Gets Results so far and adds the next Answer to the bottom of the list.
Put it into A
Put "Yes to Clean Fridges - " into B
Put "Well Done!" into C
Put A & B & C &Return into field "Results" of card "Module1Results"
Add 1 to field "Correct" of card "Module1Results"
On the last Card Module1 Results with a field named "Results" I have a button that says "Print"
revPrintField the long id of field "Results"
At 23 cards in a single Main Stack and printing tested it works fine. However I proceeded to to do Module 2, 3 and 4 getting up to 118 Cards. Now printing wont work. Created on Mac 10.6.4 using Enterprise 4.5 - Exported for Windows.
Questions of possible error scenarios I have are:
- Is 118 Cards in a Rev Standalone (Main Stack) too much for Windows to cope with and is this why printing no longer works (28meg file)?
- Should I have each other Module as a Sub Stack instead?
- Could it be carriage returns/ or text formatting that are put into the field that the print command does not like?
Kind regards, Brent.
