Re: using icons for a file menu instead of data grid ???

Thanks, Simon! I am using the scroller in Livecode instead of the carousel in mobGUI. A followup question... I am using this to create a menu of selectable images. When a user clicks on an image, they will be taken to another card which will show a video. And then they will be able to return to this...

using icons for a file menu instead of data grid ???

Hi guys, for the tablet version of my app, I am experimenting with creating a menu of files using floating icons instead of the data grid "menu list" (similar to what you see when you look at the home screen on your iPad or Android tablet). I have seen a number of apps do this for the tablet version...

Re: Native mobGUI controls look...

Ok, so I am realizing that maybe my updating feature for mobGUI isn't working correctly because my menu options look like the old way while the new stuff I am seeing for mobGUI looks completely different with white buttons, etc. How do I get the new look mobGUI menu? Is that what I want or doesn't i...

Native mobGUI controls look...

They look great in iOS.

But in Android, they look greenish (well, actually light-greenish)! Not very pretty...lol

Why is this happening and how can I get the controls (buttons, tab bars, etc) to look blue & black like I want them to?

Mobile Video - Android

I am successfully playing video on both iPhone & Android. iPhone is working great (controls, fullscreen, etc). However, Android is not. When I go to the video card, the video appears but the controls do not automatically appear. I have to touch the screen or swipe downwards below the video image for...

Re: Scroller with a datagrid

Thanks, Neil, I took a look at it and noticed that her data grid is a table and not a form. I have seen elsewhere on the forum that other people have struggled with data grid forms. Should I be using a data grid table instead of a form? If so, I learned how to import dynamically created data into a ...

Scroller with a datagrid

I have searched around quite a bit and tested out some things but am coming up empty on this one: I would like for my data grid (form, not a table) to scroll by touch on a mobile device. Advice? I have looked at and tried the coding example in the live code lessons. I have also looked in the forums ...

Modifying Borders in data grid row templates

I use data grids quite a bit in my applications and like using borders in the row templates of my data grid forms (not tables!).

Here is what I would like to to do, I do not want the border around all 4 sides. I only want it on the bottom edge of the row. How can I accomplish that?

Re: Strange characters when displaying articles...

Just so everyone else knows, the issue I experienced was resolved by understanding the difference between storing and displaying text in Livecode. I don't understand it all but text in computer programming is stored & displayed using Unicode. Specifically related to Livecode: -the Livecode server st...

Re: Button in data grid instead of dgHilitedLine

Nevermind, I figured it out. Found some stuff in the forums. Just so everyone else knows how this is done, I put the data grid code in the button that is in the data grid rather than the data grid. I also unchecked the autohilight box in the data grid preferences so that the line does not hilight wh...

Strange characters when displaying articles...

I took a document I wrote in Word and saved it out as a simple txt file. At this point it read just fine. Then I uploaded it to the server using Cyberduck. I viewed the file after it was on the server, and it read properly. Then I looked at the same article as it displayed in my Livecode app and it ...

I am finishing with the content management system (CMS) for my app and need to add a method for deleting uploads after they have already been uploaded. In the CMS, I am displaying all of the uploads for a single category in a data grid. Through that data grid, the author is able to view and modify t...

Re: Q and A content 30/10/13

Hi Neil

I am still receiving an error:

group "back2": execution error at line 8 (Chunk: can't find background), char 21

This error is for the following line of code:

send "mouseDown" to group id tOption of recent card

Any ideas?

Thanks

Re: Q and A content 30/10/13

So I have to specify a card instead of using "recent card" in my code? I am trying to use the card with the "back button" as the destination for multiple cards and their data grids. If I have to specify a card, that means I have to create more cards.

Please confirm

Thanks!

Tom
