Re: revGeometry

From other languages I have used, their approach was that a visual control had a "parent" (think group) If something was told to resize/redraw, it also iterated threw it's child list, sending them a resize/redraw command. If a parent was not on screen at the time, or if it was invisible or, if it ju...

Re: Baseline Development Environment?

This is a great resource - exactly what I was looking for, but like any good document, it opens up more questions than it answers. For example, linux - every distribution has a limited life - ubuntu 6.06 is from June 2006. That distribution has not been supported by ubuntu themselves for years. The ...

Baseline Development Environment?

What is the baseline development environment used by the core Livecode developers? What OS/Compiler/libraries etc. I am looking to setup one or more clean room virtual machines as a baseline compile farm, but I want to ensure that I am using the same base libraries, compilers etc that are used by th...

Livecode on windows 7 ultimate?

Hi, I am trying to get my livecode to work on my newer laptop vs my old standby. On the first run (and every attempt thereafter) when I try to start livecode, it starts up, flashes the message that .livecode and .rev extensions are not registered and then disappears out of memory. Does anyone have a...

Re: What is the fastest Database?

...I asked about firebird support... How long ago was that? And does FireBird work on Android? I have had a few emails/chats with various individuals at runrev. I have been told that it has been added as a discussion item for their morning meeting. I also asked for documentation so that I could add...

Re: Best Tree Control?

I have "demo'd" many different pieces of software over the years, but that does not help when you find a limit in the documentation or bug in the code and you try to resolve it. I have had great support from runrev so far and I am confident in them, but I am finding little information in regards to ...

Thanks, http://www.jaedworks.com/hypercard/scri ... k-bnf.html is a great site for this info, but is there an updated one for the latest generation of livecode?

Re: What is the fastest Database?

I asked about firebird support, even going so far as to ask what it would cost to add the support - they said that they did not have the resources.
If a third party has the skills to take on the project, I would be willing to contribute.

Is there a language reference guide?

I am looking for the yacc or parser grammer so that I can get a better understanding of the language and what options are available.

Does such a thing exist?

Re: Sub-Card???

Hi Craig, Think of a word processor - you have a toolbar on the top of the form that changes depending upon what you are doing and where you are doing it. With sub-stacks, I would have to be flipping stacks as the user moves through the document - without the user noticing...... Or, I can try to hav...

Sub-Card???

I am looking for a control that acts like a partial card - ie it is part of the current stack, but sits above the current card and is smaller. In Delphi, I can have a "Tpanel" which can be switched in and out easily and can be set to auto-resize in regards to it's parent control. I have looked in li...

Best Tree Control?

On the runrev store there are two different tree controls but when I tried to do a search on how well they work/are supported, I found very little information.

Can someone give me some feedback in regards to which is better and why.

Thanks

Re: What is the fastest Database?

I have tested various databases in production environments and hands down, firebird is the fastest. I have compared it to DB2, Oracle, MSSQL and various opensource DB's. The biggest plus with firebird is that you can have queries on the server which in turn can connect to other databases on remote s...
