Re: How to deal with database files for an app?

simple answer - and not enough storage place or time is not an excuse. 1, You backup daily or whenver the time to renter data is much more than the time to backup 2. you backup at the end of the week (or only at the end of the week) 3. then a monthly backup at the end of the year you save all the mo...

Re: Getting Snakey

Hi Richmond, The canonical use case (for me at least) for the upper function is when you ask for an entry and you have allowed upper and lowercase. So the user enters "Fred" for his name. If you want to test for a fred (you don't allow freds to use your program), you can test for "Fred" or "FRed" or...

Re: revCursors magically attaches to my stacks

Hi Richard, I would'nt say its 100% foolproof because if memory serves, whenever I "savesas" to change the name (not the first time) and then I did a compile more often than not the problem surfaced - so I make sure if I do a "saveas" I exit LC and come back in - which is why I went for over a year ...

Re: Replace LiveCode Script with JavaScript, forever

Hi I would put to a crowd fund - even a monthly payment for Thierry to do as he has done with Perl and Lua. Even if it took a year because of other commitments we know it would be done. While Thierry is at it I bet he could EASILY crowdfund a Python or Javascript "external" - I believe it's seamless...

Hi, You beat me to it ... I just created an account for myself and recorded me setting up a mysql database - got to the part called "remote sql" - I.e. access from an external computer/server - and we need a premium account. The cheapest is $6 a month and there are cheaper ones at a pound a month pa...

Re: Can LC do math with precision to the 7th decimal place? - Solved

I'm wondering if the decimal number implementation has anything to do with the Livecode for FM project. Filemaker has a default 16 digit precision but can go up to 400 digits. They won't be able to be compatible if the precision stays as it is. In fact if this is the case we should get a lot of new ...

Re: Community widgets

Hi Hermann,

Just loaded the turnimage stack

pressed START then stop at varying times - 5 seconds 10 seconds etc - the whole ive livecode exits without any spinning or dialogs or anything.

I tried it on LC 9.04 rc3 and livecode 9.5 dp1 - exactly the same

O/S is Windows 10
