Until we get scrolling working in a datagrid, (on mobile) and also we want it keep simple, I frequently need to create a runtime list from the database.
But the "typesetting tools" in Livecode depend on a field being present. e.g.
set the textAlign of line 1 of field "myField" to right
Currently you can
# populate the fld with all kinds of "tweaking" to look nice
But I was looking for a method, similar to the advice
"get all you data in a variable and then show in a field"
So that the field gets a single pixel update
Is there a similar method to this with a field, where it all laid out ahead of time; and "bingo" you popular the field in one go without lockscreen?
