Hello,

I recently convinced my company to let me re-write our farm management
software in RunRev. Part of my proposal for this was developing a module for
this software within a week.

Going from zero RevTalk/Revolution knowledge to programming a fairly large
database application has really been fun (no sarcasm intended).

But syntax (or lack thereof?) seems to be my biggest problem.

I have a lot of controls that need to be made visible and invisible
depending on the user-state of the application (updating a record, adding a
record, viewing a record).

I'm unsure how to use parameters with handlers in this one liner.

on hideObject pObjectType, pObjectName
   set the invisible of pObjectType pObjectName to true
end hideObject

on showObject pObjectType, pObjectName
   set the invisible of pObjectType pObjectName to true
end showObject

Any suggestions on helping this RevNub get this sorted out? In your
response, try to include how the params are used in handlers. Thank you so
much in advance for your replies!


Hoping Rev can make my job easier (I am very tired of ASP .NET),
