I tried to recreate the screen flashing issue but could not. The first screen of this project has that attempt:
So there may be something else causing the flashing.
Edit: Figured it out! It was my mistake (sorry @bibbi and @conroy!). I have two buttons, one to move backwards by date and one to move forwards. I had left an old function in the “forwards” button. I removed it and now there is no flash:
No worries at all @tatiang, I’m glad it’s working properly. Lovely collaboration happening here in the thread. Exactly what this community is all about.
there is at least one man happy or at least satisfied with the result obtained after so much work, isn’t @tatiang ?
I would like to know and I must not be the only one if what you found is valid for your application or can be generalized from a few basic principles?
Yes, quite happy! But it took me a dozen hours of work to get there.
The blocks are pretty complex (for example, I’m using a math formula with 3n-2 list index #s to populate labels in each container) and specific to my project so I don’t think it helps to share a screenshot at this point but I can do my best to answer questions.
What I would like to know first is would it work in StP, and if you only update a number of clones corresponding to the capacity of a screen?
I would think it would work the same in StP. Because it’s a loop, you can update as many or as few clones as you need. But I’m not sure how you would do that based on the size of the screen.
I use a scrolling layout (you could use a scrolling column in StP) so that it doesn’t matter how many clones I have on the screen.
a “DVL” like is a series of clones that can be modified one after the other (my mistake was to think of a group) so to modify a background, move a clone, it becomes more obvious
indeed to access a line or a label you will need a formula as @tatiang said and/or juggle with lists of components and it will be essential to save the clones in a list
@tatiang’s journey helped me a lot and I appreciated the support of another clone master: @muneer
did you even read this post for context on what a dvl is? You’re way off.
@jared That is some weird, weird spam. Or a clever attempt with ChatGPT. I’ve removed the message. Although, I am curious if they ever would have responded.
