Re: Meaning and use of \> or \*

Thanks, Klaus, for your quick reply. I thought it might be a typo, but, needed some confirmation before writing a correction email to the LC Guide editor. :)

Meaning and use of \> or \*

Hi In the LC 9.5 User Guide (7/30/19, p. 111), example code is given on the use of implicit parameters. In it are what seems to be two logical operators: \> and \*. But I do not find them listed or explained in the section of the guide on logical operators (p. 124). The character "\" is a mystery to...

Status of Message Course of Create It with Livecode

I am trying to build a chat app for a office LAN and found the Hello World course of Create It with LiveCode helpful, but it seems that the sequel to that course named "Messages" has not been developed. To better state what I am talking about, a screenshot of the topics of the "Messages" course is h...

Running LC 9.5 Business and Windows 10. I have a mainstack consisting of many cards but also containing substacks. Recently I noticed in the Project Browser that there is listed a substack having the same name as the mainstack! Opening that substack reveals a repetition of the cards of the mainstack...

Re: Size and Position Pane - Unstoppable Incrementation

Thanks for your reply. No, checking the Resizable checkbox or trying Ctrl+. (I’m using Win 10) has no effect. Running LC 9.5 but I encountered this behavior in 7 and 8 too.

Size and Position Pane - Unstoppable Incrementation

I haven't seen or found any inquiries about a problem I sometimes experience with the size and position pane of the Property Inspector. I guessing I am not the only one to encounter it.

Re: Card wont refresh after video plays

Thanks, Klaus, for your reply. I made the change in the code and it worked. The second thing I learned is when using the LC dictionary to notice for which platform the message is intended. Sometimes there is no clue in the body of the entry. The reader has to look at the first line of the book entry...

Re: Purpose of Stack Files Tab of Property Inspector

Thank you for your helpful response. Regarding Stack Files tab I checked the manual and the forum, but overlooked the dictionary.

Regarding a splash screen I will give the method of the lesson to which you pointed a try and report the outcome.

Purpose of Stack Files Tab of Property Inspector

It may be there in the LC8 manual or the forum, but I could not find an explanation of the Stack Files tab of the Property Inspector of stacks, nor could I find it on the forum. If it is available, all I need is a page number or a link. I want to know because I have having difficulty creating a spla...
