Re: Valid locations saving pref files

Hi, "ProgramData" is one of the "mapped folders" in newer Windows systems. They can be tricky to work with. Using another approach I accidentally came to a way to write there: set itemdel to slash put specialFolderPath(40) into myPath -- the User Folder put last item of myPath into myName -- save fo...

Re: can i use livecode on a chromebook with intel?

Hi, my tablet is a Lenovo Yoga Tab 2 830L with Android 5, and an Intel Atom CPU . Compiling for Android (without any additional actions for Intel support) I never had any problems running my LC apps on it - it behaves just like any other ARM Android devices. Sure, it's not Chrome OS. But Android at ...

Re: system date format

Hi, in my LC (6.7.10) the dictionary says (searching "date"): Comments: The format of the system date forms is set by the Date & Time control panel (on Mac OS systems), the Date control panel (on Windows systems), or the LANG environment variable (on Unix systems). This may also solve the problem of...

Re: Speedy LiveCode

Hi, This is well over twice as fast as benchmarks I made years ago, in v.6. Good news, and in RAM only, so am I noticing anything important? Twice as fast as in LC 6? Sure you don't have any quirks in your data? I tried it on my cheap (€ 50 as leasing return) dev machine (HP Compaq 6005 pro, built 2...

Re: Fonts on standalone app fuzzy, but when in the IDE they are crisp

Hi, after messing around with "start using font" for a while I now do as follows: 1. I put my .ttf's into [StandAloneFolder]/fonts. This way I have them available. For Android it's all that's needed, already. 2. For Windows, I check on "openstack" if the fontnames are "in the fontNames". If they are...

Re: SQL Date

Hi Klaus,

no intention in ruining anything, sry!
Only emphasizing the sheer beauty of the subtle differences in the various SQL dialects (for mySQL, you'd lookup ADDDATE/ DATE_ADD, btw ...) 8)

Have fun!

Re: SQL Date

Hi,

in SQLite, try this:
SELECT DATE('now','+1 day')
or
SELECT DATETIME('now','+2 hour')
;-)

Re: SQL Date

Hi, Tired of having so many dateTime conversion utilities I recently wrote a "function to bind 'em all". The idea is to trow it a dateTime string of whatever format and have it decide itself what it is, and to convert it to dateItems at first. DateItems because it's the most easy way to calculate wi...

Re: For which operating system do you need RunRev?

Hi, [...] has there been any discussion or plans for offering LC on Android? [...] What I asking about is the actual LC programming IDE — or some simplified version of it. Having to write an IDE UI for the limited possibilities of mobile devices looks like the ultimate chastisement for an unruly dev...

Re: Android Development

Hi, I'm using in Win 10 64bit: - Java JDK 1.8.0_144 - Android SDK Manager 24.4.1 - in the SDK, I have APIs 7,8,15,21 installed Building for LC 6.7.10 works flawlessly this way. I've had bad experiences updating the SDK, so I leave it at a version that's known to work. In your case, have you tried to...

Re: Validating database operation causes crash

Hi,

you already tried to delete your LC preferences file? This sounds like voodoo, but actually every LC version I ever tried has managed to corrupt this one once at least, with quite entertaining results partially.

Have fun!

Re: JSON to SQLite - code works, but how to improve?

Hi, SQLite does the BEGIN/ COMMIT for you, so you can usually skip this. You're using it here correctly to prohibit single BEGIN/ COMMITs for each record, but: . Why use a repeat for each record, instead of feeding the whole data into the table at once? Should be much faster. For table-like data see...

Re: Validating database operation causes crash

Hi, This is one of the weirdest things I've ever seen. I agree. This is really weird. You tried in the debugger? Which line crashes actually? The "if the result ..."? Testing "the result" really shouldn't crash ;-)) So set breakpoint at the line where you construct your tvSQL and watch what happens....

Re: Complex situation and DB

Hi, Question n.1 I have an app that connect to an SQLITE DB. If the EXE is on a shared folder the DB in the same folder (so I use relative path), can the remote user launch the EXE and using it or the path is messed? I've found out that using relative paths with databases is calling for problems. So...
