Copying a table
Author: Dave Polaschek Posted: 5/31/1999; 8:01:49 AM Topic: Copying a table Msg #: 6896 Prev/Next: 6895 / 6897
Here's what I'm trying to do:
I want to build a table in local storage within a script, and then copy it to the clipboard as a table, so I can later paste it into another table. The reason I'm doing this is that I can't be sure which of a dozen tables I'll be pasting it into (otherwise I'd just build it right in the destination).
I do this with the following snippet:local(tempTable) new(tableType, @tempTable) new(stringType, @tempTable.text) new(dateType, @tempTable.date) tempTable.text = "test" tempTable.date = clock.now() clipboard.putvalue(tempTable)
The problem is that when I paste, I get an item named "pasted binary" that's a binary object (of kind binary[tabl]). I can manually convert this to a table, but it seems as if there ought to be a way for this to happen automagically.
I'm using Frontier 5.0.2b19. Anyone have any suggestions? Ideally I would be able to set the name of the item as well as making making it paste as a table.
