Re: FH Plugin debug window runs very slowly

Thanks all...you're right of course re test data...if I was working I'd be the first to get it done properly, but dev is now a pastime so why let professionalism get in the way ! ;-)

But I will implement a Named List feature today!

Cheers

FH Plugin debug window runs very slowly

Hi Does anyone have any advice for how to get the FH plugin debug window in FH to run programs at a 'normal' speed? My experience is that my code runs 50 times slower in the debug window than when run directly from the Plugin window... even after I've turned off Debug Mode and unchecked all the vari...

Siblings enumerations

Hi again I need to extract a list of children of a family in birth sequence (or as entered) in a Plugin. I thought this would be straightforward: find the FAM record and work through the CHIL records. Trouble is that (a) not all of the children are being returned (the MoveNext only returns a child w...

Re: Given Name Used (_USED) not behaving as expected

Thanks for the explanation Mike.

I have seen the other fields working, but I recently re-wrote the code and I guess I used the surname code as a template, not noticing the subtle difference!

Cheers!

Given Name Used (_USED) not behaving as expected

Hi all There's probably a good reason, but I'm not getting any "given named used" when using a plugin to extract names. Code snippet: ptrName = fhNewItemPtr() ptrName:MoveTo(ptrIndi,"~.NAME") local givennameused = fhGetItemText(ptrName,'~:_USED') fhMessageBox('givennameused:='..givennameused) Test d...

Extracting long text fields, rich text, carriage returns etc

Hi again - another API question... I've had some fun trying to figure out how to extract long text fields, e.g. Notes or Text from Source, with all the html formatting in tact (or with known control char behaviour). These can either be rich text/embedded html or plain text with/without carriage retu...

Re: How to get from witnessed fact to the original fact?

Super useful. Thanks! I've spent an hour or so working an example which gets what I need. I have noticed that for local family facts such as marriage the test ptrOwner IsSame() as ptrIndi fails in that ptrOwner is a family vs an individual ... so I've been looking at testing both spouses. I was tryi...

How to get from witnessed fact to the original fact?

Hi I'm extracting Facts for each Individual using the fhIndGetFactList function, including their witness and timeline facts. I'm struggling to see how, for a witness fact, I can get to the original Fact data that was witnessed. For example: There is a Fact item A for Joe Bloggs witnessing the marria...

Re: Querying Source Citations

Aaaahhh! I was looking at the duplicate entries without the parentheses, thinking those were the main/complete entries! :shock: I would imagine there's a really good explanation for that and for the colour scheme of the bullets, but I've taken enough of your time!

Thanks again!

Re: Querying Source Citations

Thanks for your responses. I was looking on the Family Historian website which is identical except that the "Family Historian Plugin Help" link on the "Plugins Dialog" page doesn't work (or is it for just me?). So the provided link is very helpful! Thanks @ColeValleyGirl @Tatewise's guidance as to t...

Querying Source Citations

Hi, I'm sure this must have been raised before, but if so I can't find the answer in FHUG. Sorry. I'm trying to extract citation data from FH - initially using a Query, and then when prototyped, in a LUA Plug-In - specifically: Citation-specific details fields Citation Text instances Citation Notes ...

Re: How do you get website Place Report to exclude Private Individuals?

Thanks ...I guess than would work! That said, it seems wrong to have to make a copy, then run a third-party app to delete things, then generate the web page. I suspect that it would require some major re-factoring of FH code to retrofit this logic to all possible reports...but probably something tha...

Outline Descendants Chart

Hi This question has been asked before but I can't replicate the accepted response in FH7. I'm trying to create a compact "waterfall" style report of all the descendants of a person, similar to the Focus Descendants tab. The 'use case' is to create a one (or two) page document that can be sent to a ...
