Re: Shell - continuous output?

I don't remember if I tried that.

I gave up on implementing this in LiveCode, it was easier to do in Lazarus (Object Pascal).

Slow buffer/lots of repeat

So I'm building an IDE, and it's going quite well. But I've run into a big issue, key buffer/repeat. Basically, the whole thing is sluggish as cold syrup. I have a large scrolling field for the main window, a small field next to it for line display, and trap keys using rawkeydown for things like sav...

Menus and icons

Been looking but not finding. One of the things I'm using menus for, is acting as a boolean setter, you can change some settings simply by clicking them in the menu, simple to trap with a switch. But what I haven't found is how to set icons next to the menu items. So in this case I want to show the ...

Re: Get location of click in scrolling field

In this case I'm mimicking the Sublime IDE mini-map, so with that I can grab the line clicked in the mini-map, multiply by line-height in the target window, and set the scroll to the right position :)

Re: number of lines inaccurate, sometimes?

Ok, I solved it by doing:

if the last character of field "mainInput" is lf then
put the number of lines of field "mainInput" + 1 & cr after temp
end if

All it's for is displaying the line count next to the line, this seems to work for now

Re: number of lines inaccurate, sometimes?

It's only when the last line is blank (Has no content)

I can have a whole bunch of blank lines, and the last one is not counted.

number of lines inaccurate, sometimes?

I'm trying to count the number of lines of a scrolling field (Without wrapping) There are two ways I know of, the number of lines of field "input", and the second is setting the itemdelimiter and counting items. But both of these seem inaccurate. As I hit enter/backspace, adding and removing lines, ...

Set button width to the width of its label?

I'm programmatically creating buttons, but I can't figure out how to set the width of the button to the width of its label programmatically.

How do I get the width of a buttons label?

Re: Evaluate string?

Originally I wrote it for testing only CFML code, but with a couple of tweaks I could test any code, so I had the idea of moving from a CFML-based implementation, which requires you to run an OpenBD CFML server, to a multi-platform GUI application with no special pre-requisites. Ironically I won't b...
