Setting rotary?

 [1/7] from: kpeters:otaksoft at: 21-Aug-2007 20:23

I never thought that this should cause me any problems, yet it does: How do I set a rotary with "A", "B", "C" & "D" as data to, say "C" in code so that not only "C" is displayed but it is actually "positioned" there so that the next click will advance it to "D"? Thanks, Kai

It's all written here: probe svv/vid-styles/rotary/feel Anton.

Thanks Anton ~ which document would point me at probing svv and paths below? I don't think I have so far come across any.. Or is this some kind of well hidden insider knowledge? While I am still too much newbie to apply any wisdom gleaned from studying all this, it did help me to answer the next question I would have asked (similar question in regards to checks). Here's what I have tried with rotaries: rot/data: head rot/data find rot/data "D" show rot Not working - am I getting closer?? Thanks, Kai On Wed, 22 Aug 2007 15:12:28 +1000, Anton Rolls wrote:

Hello, I'm sorry but I cannot understand what you want to do exactly. Can you make a practical example? On 8/22/07, Kai Peters <> wrote:

Hi Kai, Yes, you are getting closer. Just a small change and you are there. But this is not really "insider knowledge". Familiarity with the system object is all you need, in particular, the system/view/vid object. When dealing with VID, familiarity with system/view/vid is essential. view layout [ r: rotary data ["A" "B" "C"] btn "set to B" [r/data: find head r/data "B" show r] ] Anton.

Thanks one more time, Anton! Alessandro ~ here's what I am doing with this: In a database application I use data entry forms and as the user navigates through MySQL cursors, I need to set the fields, checks, infos, rotaries etc. on these forms according to the data in the corresponding field values of the current record.

Hi Kai, Sorry to be so slow to respond. In addition to Anton's suggestion, if you're using a release with face accessors, set-face will do it. view layout [ r: rotary data ["A" "B" "C"] btn "set to B" [set-face r "B"] ] -- Gregg
