Re: Cant open *.livecode

One more thing: lock messages from the IDE or the messagebox, then open the stack from the menubar. See if the stack loads without triggering any messages. It's possible that a misbehaving openstack handler or something similar is misbehaving. Or something that used to work no longer does now that t...

hand-coding html and css

COMPLETELY OT: Think you're good with css? html? This is in the author's own words, completely hand-coded in css and html. https://github.com/cyanharlow/purecss-lace I, for one, welcome our hand-coding overlords. I mean, who knew "repeating-radial-gradient(circle at -50% 55%, transparent 0.1em, #000...

Re: The 9.5 IDE Chugs

It appears that the messagebox header is now a com.livecode.widget.paletteActions widget, so no... it doesn't respond to keypresses.

Re: XML Question

See if this helps... note that I guessed at the xml structure looking at the sample, so this may not be exactly what you're looking for, but it should get you started. The same applies because the file in the zip archive is not the same as the one your code references. YMMV. on mouseUp local tFile l...

Re: little help with combo/option menus?

It's the kdown function, and I'm dealing with the XK_Down, XK_Up, and more importantly the XK_KP_Enter switch entries. I know how to get the label text and how to get the selected text/line/chunk, but I can't get the highlighted line, which is what the down arrow and up arrow keys set, but they don'...

little help with combo/option menus?

I've been beating my head against the wall trying to fix bug report 22451 https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=22451 here for the last couple of days. I've got code that *mostly* works, or at least would work if I could tell which line of the control is currently highlighted. The code is in ...

With the ways I can get LC to lock up the computer this key sequence becomes muscle memory after a while.

Re: 9.5.1 RC-1 Import snapshot

LOL. At any rate, you *should* be able to get by without a reboot. This mostly works for me when it locks up: press control-F6 that will give you a full-screen terminal prompt log in with your usual name/password combo type ps ax | grep livecode the first line will be your hung process type kill -9 ...

Yeah, that's looping multi-frame. And 2MB is what I was thinking, since I just tried a 2.1MB image and got rejected.

forum metaquestion

I can't find an appropriate forum for questions about this web forum, so I'll try here...

What's the maximum size attachment you can upload here? Even simple gifs give me a generic "too large" error.
I can't find this documented anywhere.

Re: script local bug or file corruption?

I have found that editing and saving a script clears script local variables. I don't know if this is new behavior, but I frequently have a situation where an initialization routine fills in an array and then later handlers make use of the array. If I edit the script I have to run the initialization ...

Updated with the latest build, 1.0.14.
Now supports a FILO stack for 'go to definition' and 'go back' commands instead of just one level of breadcrumbs.
