Re: cascade dispatch commands?

OK - it turns out that dispatch commands *do* cascade properly... the problem is in the script editor itself. I didn't read the documentation carefully enough to realize the the "it" value returned from a dispatch command can have one of three (!) values: handled unhandled passed so the script edito...

Re: Refactoring Support for the LC Script Editor

The stack has been updated on github. The README.md file now lists one known issue that I'm still mulling over, but otherwise all the edge cases seem to work properly.

Re: Hirens Boot CD?

after that lady has finished with her current hardware (i.e. about the end of April) she will 'pay' me to set up her "New-fer-you" system by donating it to me, at which point I'll get it running Xubuntu 32-bit in my school. Ha! Nicely done. Er... not quite sure what the future tense of the verb phr...

Re: new location for extensions?

LCMark- Doh! :roll: I was trying to avoid that in order to maintain backward compatibility, but it finally :shock: sank in that for earlier versions we wouldn't have extensions anyway, so I'm good with that. Thanks for the jolt of reality. All I need to do is wrap it in a try clause and it's taken c...

Re: new location for extensions?

LCMark- thanks for the details. That clears things up. I nonetheless had to adjust some PowerTools code to account for the fact that in my local build I wasn't seeing the builtin extensions, but it's good to know that things will keep on working the way they have in release versions. bogs- given tha...

Re: compiling on modern linux distros (2019 version)

I'm not in a position to be able to answer that question, but I see that Ian submitted a pull request to fix the -no-pie problem. Unfortunately it can't be accepted until the team upgrades to a more modern version of gcc.

cascade dispatch commands?

Just throwing this out here for brainstorming... I have a need to cascade dispatch commands. What I've got is of the form dispatch "someCommand" to me with someParameters if it is not "handled" then do_default_stuff -- otherwise the someCommand has done its work end if so if there is no "someCommand...

compiling on modern linux distros (2019 version)

In looking at the build instructions at https://github.com/livecode/livecode/blob/develop/docs/development/build-linux.md I notice that they were last updated on 20 Feb 2018. Since that time Debian Wheezy was supported until of the end of May 2018. Is that really still the base system that the team ...

Re: Need help with building an external// desktop externals tutorials are not helpful

Hmmm... the externals interface is still alive and well in the engine, so nothing has changed there. It's possible that the old externals are accessing system resources that have changed over time...

Re: Need help with building an external// desktop externals tutorials are not helpful

External libraries are indeed still supported, and until LiveCode Builder comes of age are still the only way to access some (most?) system resources. Jpags.me- what "results" are you not getting from your external? If you're using Mark Waddingham's external creator, the installation paths should po...
