Re: Map Life Facts

the negative sign, I have two of them in my key. It shows properly and operates properly once in the table, so it is just the entry. Not a big deal really. I dont think google is going to give you the rules for api keys, and you will have to discover what is allowed as time passes. I find no javascr...

CHAN.DATE CHAN.TIME

I cannot seem to read and write these with a plugin in the normal way. I see in the export gedcom, it is done with read file line instead of an interface with pointers. Is that the only way?

Re: how to get #entries.

sideways a little from the subject, but still this plugin, so if it needs moving... reading what I can find of the spec: require can be anywhere in the file, is that correct? also, I have been trying to come to grips with coroutines and fhUpdateDisplay() trying to find a way to update the output tab...

Re: how to get #entries.

thats sort of what my code looks like I thought first #NAME, realized while it looks ok, its just a text string, and wont work then I thought about pairs, but if there is a table behind it I cant get at it. strDataOffset = "~.NAME[" .. ln .. "]:SURNAME_FIRST" is what I ended up w...

how to get #entries.

so, I am trying to determine, (since it should be non-nil if it exists)
how do I get the NAME[ ], SPOU[], MARR[] and so on, number of entries?

nent = #NAME
sent = #SPOU
ment = #MARR

That isnt going to work, I know that before I even test it.

Re: build a summary table

Re: build a summary table

i had meant read from banana onward indexed must the index integer be consecutive? 1 alpha 2 bravo 4 delta 6 foxtrot ? because I thought perhaps I could order like this in place without using table.sort and its machinations: (sort of hash the index) y=mx + b where m would be the soundex count of eac...

Re: build a summary table

got it fixed,thanks. I dont know what the code is doing so it is impossible to focus. believe me, there have been over 200 (at the very least) iterations of that code before I came here, closest I ever got was double location output with occurance. so, I am still confused why a single table cannot b...

Re: build a summary table

The table fills out correctly as far as it goes, I watched it wrtTbls 40-50 times, and inspected variables I then threw a throwaway **DEBUG in wrtOutput and see absolutely nothing wrong and it fails, (or ends) with 13 records output, silently. I can find nothing wrong with the records., what should ...

Thats exactly the thing, Thank you! How you would navigate there is beyond me. But its not the old plug in store, where we could browse all plugins like that. its more the code snippet page.

How do I browse for Plugins?

browse all plugins at the plugin store? i have been going around and around on the same 5-6 pages. if I do the 'index' lets say A there I sit, is there a scrollable list like the old days?

and everyone talks about it, but there doesn't seem to be a plugin 'store'
