Working with PopUp Menus – Programming with XOJO

This particular problem has been a long time coming for an answer. The goal is simple–Populate a PopUp menu with values from a SQL table, then select the value in that PopUp with a result from an SQL query. Here’s my solution:

You’ll notice that the solution is not clean. Is there a way to select a value in a popup based on the value of the item’s RowTag? NO! (If there is please let me know). What I wound up doing was store the value of ListIndex in the table and select based on the queried ListIndex.

Loving the Interview Process

I just got done with seven interviews with filmmakers at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival. I had a blast. This is what I like to do. I love talking to people about what their passions are. I love to have real conversations about how people get things done. I love learning something new from anybody. Check back. I will be posting these interviews on my YouTube channel and playing them on the Geek Lab show.

Independent Film Talk – My New YouTube Channel

I really hate breaking up synergy, but in this case, I thought it was the prudent decision to make. I’m pulling all of my personal interviews with filmmakers and centralizing it into one location. Primarily, because I need to create a more professional setting for these interviews and to let the art of independent filmmaking stand on its own.

I created the Independent Film Talk channel on YouTube. I’m pretty sure I’ll have to change the name down the road, but here is a one-stop shop for my discussions about independent films and independent filmmaking. Enjoy.
