LOL. And now it's time for the penguin on top of your television to explode.

Re: working with lcdoc files

Hoping to spare someone else going through this pain.
I'm still miffed that text in a block comment is syntactically significant.

Klaus - I remember going by the Popeye village on Malta with the 2006 conference.

Re: working with lcdoc files

With all the above said, I still don't think .lcdoc files are going to be a substitute for the manifest.xml files for protected widgets. There's too much missing information (svg icon, preferred size, etc) So...Q for the team: what's the intent here wrt protected widgets? Is the .lcm file all that's...

Re: working with lcdoc files

OK - Bernd and I communicated offline and got this working, up to a point. In the process I learned: [*]An .lcb file *MUST* start with a block comment containing one line, and that line is used as the "description" element of the .lcdoc file. If that block comment is missing then that element and se...

Re: working with lcdoc files

Nope. No difference there. Yes, I had a "--" comment as the first line rather than a "/** */" block. I changed then, recompiled, and reinstalled, and there's still no difference in the .lcdoc file or (obviously) in the array parsed from it. Neither of my user widgets show up in tinyDict, no doubt be...

Re: working with lcdoc files

Thanks, Brian, but that shows up the same incompatibilties between the LCS lcdoc files and the extension lcdoc files generated by the Extension Builder. Here's what move.lcdoc looks like after processing move.lcdoc.png and here's the lcdoc for my barcode widget generated by the Extension Builder bar...

Re: Is livecode dead?

Many good points here. The only one I will disagree with is So what if it increased the conversion rate. That says it is better than what was. That does not mean that it is good. For all we know, it went from 20 users to 30 users. The big question is how does it compare in conversion rates with it's...

Re: Creating a randomizer that does not repeat picks

bogs-

I'm not sure at all that the older dictionary example is applicable here.
For instance, the first repeat loop could possibly result in 15 lines of "Mary Smith". Complications result from there on...

Re: Is livecode dead?

I don't want to put myself in the position of telling the OP what to do or not to do wrt the title. The discussion has strayed a bit IMO from the original intent, which I think was that it's hard to pin down a strategy for what the mothership is doing, what with three simultaneous loosely-related de...
