Re: Bluetooth

I moved to other android programming tools back in 2015 because some of my clients needed bluetooth functionality on Android devices.
Livecode is a great product, but not for bluetooth on Android.

Re: Speedy LiveCode

I'm still using LC 5.5.5 for general use in Windows 10.
System is Intel i7-8700k, 16Gb ram running Windows 10 64bit.

Dunbarx's code snippet in LC 5.5.5 takes 15 ticks.

Using bogs MC stack.

HOWEVER; by saving the revPreferencesGUI stack as an external stack renamed to "RPG" one can
modify it, and then use it as your Preferences palette: script sizes now "stick".
Thanks Richmond,
It's always good to see different ways of making LC do what we want it to.

Increase the script editor font size

The hard wired script editor font size limit of 20 pt can be a bit small for comfort for those with poor eyesight. High resolution screens can be an issue if you don't want the OS to set the scale too high. On a QHD monitor I like to use a 22 point font in Livecode 8. The script below replaces the I...

Re: ANN: New dictionary

Richard,
I never mentioned anything about how Livecode works on Linux.
I was responding in general terms to the previous off-topic post.
In retrospect I should have not have taken the thread further off topic.
For that I apologize; sometimes I blunder in without thinking.

Re: ANN: New dictionary

Max, I don't want to hijack your thread here But you are doing it anyway. Max has put in considerable effort to help others, and you take exception to one line in his post. Many intelligent people that have tried various distros of Linux for the first time invariably run into the "It doesn't work o...

Re: Limit user input in a field...

Hi TJ,
Complexity depends on the amount of control you want the user to have.
See attached example.

it allows only two chars past the "-" and you can edit only after the "-".
backspace and delete work only past the "-"

Re: Definitive Android Setup?

Just installed the same version LC as you, Community 8.0.1 and that works ok here as well. I'm afraid I am as mystified as you are.... The only other thing I can think of is the path to your Android SDK contains a period in your username, and maybe that might be the problem. A username containing a ...

You got any SDK build tools installed; can you see them in the Android SDK Manager?

Re: Definitive Android Setup?

In preferences >> Mobile Support does LC show you the JDK path at the bottom of the window after it has the Android SDK path?? Path.png I find the usual reason for the message "Could not compile application class" is that LC cannot find the JDK. Before this post I built Android APK's successfully on...

Re: My point of view

Im discussing this within the community Hi Javea71 There are two communities. Many of the more experienced LC users don't use the forums, they use the list at http://www.mail-archive.com/use-livecode@lists.runrev.com/index.html Livecode employees are more likely to be seen on the list than here on ...

Re: LC 8.1 dp 1 breaking changes?

On the same page as the download is a link to the release notes for that version of LC.
Have a look to see if anything has changed that might stop your app working as expected.
