Re: Monetizing Your Apps when using LiveCode

Hi Shahaf, I also asked this question directly to MobFox (just sent it to them, so no answer yet), but I am asking here since it is relevant to the LC community and might inspire more discussion on the topic. Mobfox provides ads for websites and mobile apps. Are we allowed to also use those mobile a...

Re: Browser Widget Enhancements

Zoomable Controls We can do some zooming with LC objects, such as by changing imagesize inside of a group or by changing the pixelscale. However, it is very difficult to smoothly zoom in and out of a complex livecode object. For Ready Wrigley Activities, I had to limit the zoom levels to 2X and 4X,...

Re: Browser Widget Enhancements

Seamlessly Using Media Devices, Like a built-in Camera If we had the ability to properly layer the browser widget, we could do the following. 1. Set up a browser widget that uses the getUserMedia() method. (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/MediaDevices/getUserMedia). It would have t...

Re: Browser Widget Enhancements

3D Image Manipulation Javascript is excellent for manipulating images, using transform, translate, and other JS commands. If we could pass large variables directly to the browser widget from LC, we could do the following: 1. Get image data from an image in LC. (it would probably be 'put image "myIm...

Re: Browser Widget Enhancements

Nonblocking spinning wait indicator Here is another example of how this would benefit. Several LC users have commented on the need for a nonblocking spinning wait indicator. I posted an example of how to do this in a browser widget on livecode share. Of course, the wait indicator takes up a rectang...

Re: Browser Widget Enhancements

Hi everyone, Just to explain a bit more. Think of all of things you have wanted to do with LiveCode, but you decided not to because it would be impractical. Have you wanted to make multiuser online 3D games with LC? That would be difficult as things currently stand, because LC does not have a native...

Re: Passing arguments to Javascript from Livecode

Has the ability to send data from JavaScript to livecode in iOS been resolved? I think this is an essential requirement for a working browser object.

Re: How to make an animated wait icon

Hi Paul, To do this, you need to present the wait icon as an animated gif, through a browser widget. I just uploaded a sample stack through the Sample Stacks menu option in the IDE. Just search for Nonblocking Spinning Wait Demo. The keys to making it work are these: 1. Put the data for the gif anim...

Re: Monetizing Your Apps when using LiveCode

I have been doing research on this issue, for a project I am working on. I feel like the best solution is to use a javascript/html interface with ad providers. That way, it does not depend on plugins that might eventually become outdated. I also think it is a terrible idea to become locked into a si...

Re: Advertising on Android

I have been researching this issue for a project I am working on. It appears that several ad providers use a mobile web interface in addition to the android and iOS SDKs. I know that both Mopub and MobFox do this. Considering that we might produce an application that is deployed to 5 different platf...

Using PixelScale and ScaleFactor for selective zooming

Hi everyone, I made an application for work that uses the pixelscale property in iOS to zoom into the content, while not zooming into the various buttons that the user needs to control the application. I know this has been a topic of discussion in the past, so I thought I would share how I did it. T...

Re: Android mobile browser JavaScript to LiveCode?

I am looking into this right now as well. I have not yet found an answer. There are two methods that are available on desktop and one method on iOS. I am thinking it may be possible to use a URL that causes a load, but not in a visible browser window, or section of a window. I don't know, but I will...

Doing chromakey through Runrev

From what I can tell, a truly clean chroma key actually involves fairly complex algorithms.

Has anyone ever made an external for doing chroma key through RunRev? I did not know if existing chomakey applications and plugins could be used for such an external.

Is there a way to attach stack to posting?

It would be nice to be able to attach stacks to postings in the forums. It would make sharing and discussing stacks very convenient.

Is this possible?
