Hi Simon

I found the following in the dictionary:

iOS Note: iOS imposes strict controls over what you can and cannot access.
Each application in iOS is stored in its own 'sandbox' folder (referred to
as the home folder). An application is free to *read* and *write* files
within this folder and its descendants, but it is not allowed to access
anything outside of the 'sandbox'.

*Examples: *


set the defaultFolder to specialFolderPath("desktop")

put specialFolderPath("asup") into appSupportFolder

put url ("file:" & specialFolderPath("engine") & slash & "foo.txt") into

set the folder to specialFolderPath("engine") & slash & "myimages"

put the files into tMyImages

Use the *specialFolderPath* function to place preferences in the
Preferences folder, save files to the Documents folder, find out which
files are installed in the System or Fonts folders, and so on.


folderIdentifier - One of the items below.

******** When I edit the script to add the " EXAMPLE; put url ("file:" &
specialFolderPath("engine") & slash & "foo.txt") into tFileContents

 the script gives and error.

I edited the spelling error, and the image is now retained in the group
image control for the card it was added too. The problem is all of the
cards now have the same image that was added on the first card? The image
on each card background needs to retain the one that was added on that
card. Is the a setting or a script issue?

Thank you

Vaughn Clement
