2 MobGui or Not 2 MobGui... that is the question!

Hello, In defense of us newbies... I'm finding it challenging to know when and how to use LC scripts to work with/enhance features I'm trying to use with MobGui. For instance, trying to get a browser or scroller to work: MobGui lets you drop it on the card "pre-built" but only to find that you do st...

Native Scrollbar Autohide?

Hello, I've been playing with native scrollbars. I've noticed that they don't show up until touched or swiped and then they autohide. How do I get them to show up and stay up to give the user an intuitive clue that there is more text to scroll to? I've done them with and without MobGui (and with the...

Re: hiding/showing a browser

Thanks, I will look at that. In the meantime, I'm feeling pretty brilliant (just for a moment). I put in the button: on mouseUp goKillBrowser end mouseUp And back on the card script: on goKillBrowser  if the environment is not "mobile" then         exit goKillBrowser     end if     mobileControlDele...

weird navigation issue

I have one card in my stack that wherever you touch/click on the screen, takes you back to the previous card. What would cause the entire screen to become clickable?

Re: Loading local html

Thanks for your time on this...

Using the MobGUI plug-in, I didn't think I needed to use any other commands other than the default URL field on the plug-in panel. I'll have to play around with mobileControlSet.

Re: Loading local html

Can't get it to work. I don't need the start and end quotes for the MobGUI URL field, correct?

file:" & specialFolderPath("engine") & "/dream/dream.html

Is there something else I should have set-up in the MobGUI browser script first?

Hi Simon, I have my local content "/dream/dream.html" in my documents, home and desktop folders as well as in the folder with my LC stack. I've added the folder in my Copy Files tab in standalone settings. The MobGUI documentations says: "Entering the URL [engine]/LocalContent/Index.html would load ...

Loading local html

Can't get my local html to load.

I've set the default MobGUI URL to [specialFolderPath]/dream/dream.html but nothing shows up in the simulator. There isn't a lot of documentation for us beginners on the specialFolderPath... I'm on LC 6.6.0 and iOS Sim 7.1

Re: Show/Hide not working

Thanks, that works, but I have no idea why. How does "put 1 into x" cause my show/hide commands to start working? Also, now the scrollbar take about 20 seconds in LC to complete but works correctly (4 seconds) in the simulator... Add put 1 into x local x on preopencard put 1 into x hide button "star...
