Does that work for you?

Re: "contains" but for matching index?

Hi EssoAir, I think you want "is among" except for put "y" is among the chars of "xyz" Not clear how that is different from put "x" is among the chars of "xyz" Simon Let me give you the Javascript implementation so that maybe it's more clear. function isAmatch(string, substring) { for(var i = 0; i ...

"contains" but for matching index?

Quick question: How can I use "contains" (or any command, actually) to evaluate if a substring is contained within a string AND the indexes match up so that "xyz" contains "x" == true and "xyz" contains "xy" == true but "xyz" contains "yz" == false and "xyz" contains "y" == false I could write this ...

Re: Scroling a field while user types?

Hi EssoAir, Well you actually almost had it right... the right idea but try this send "scrollMe" to me in 1 millisec the wait you have blocks all. Now that 1 millisec is waaayyyyyy too short, and is the reason for that recursion error, not the end of the scrolling fld. The screen hasn't finished up...

Re: Writing a custom syntax highlighter?

Thanks guy! I'm not really sure yet, tbh. I'm just trying to figure everything out. I'll have to check out both of those suggestions once I get to the implementation stage.

Maintaining a single shell() instance across multiple calls?

Hey guys! So I'm working on a project right now. Part of it requires that I make an install wizard for the Dlang compiler called DMD. I was really just hoping to use LiveCode's shell() command to script the install process without the user seeing any command windows open or anything. The problem is,...

Writing a custom syntax highlighter?

Hey guys! I know this is nothing new, syntax highlighting has been implemented in every language since the dawn of multi-colored screens. But I can't seem to find someone that's implemented it in LiveCode. I'm more of the C-like syntax type coder and so I kinda need help here. I want make an IDE for...

Re: We're Funding LiveCode For the Web

The answer is simple. Putting your stacks into a browser without the use of a plugin will require a LiveCode to javascript interpreter, which is a very large undertaking. RR is a small company and does not have the resources to do this without additional funding. The alternative is to wait until th...

Yes, you could use the "DO" command for example, Mr. Thrillseeker :D

Wow i feel stupid! I saw "do" in the revdocs and assumed it was a do-while loop like in most programming languages.

Thank you good sir!

Re: Remote stack (via internet) on Android?

tl;dr I get you all have concerns but I'd really appreciate it if you let me deal with the apple review process and instead just help me out with the question at hand, that being: Can a command be run from a string variable? For clarity, I'm working on an app. It will be an easy to use application f...

Re: Remote stack (via internet) on Android?

If a stack file is merely a media container and includes no code at all, it may be viewed as compliant with Apple's terms. However, even then it's possible with just property settings to alter the execution path of an app, and in such cases it may be seen as a violation. If one were sufficiently mo...

Re: Remote stack (via internet) on Android?

But what if Apple didn't know this is how it worked? Come on! 8) Ok ok i know its a long shot, but can you load a command as a string in to a variable and excecute it? Can this be done on desktop? Like, for example, can I have a user enter a command into a text field and have that command be run by...
