Re: LC 8 Browser Widget Rect

1). I tried the same in Win 10 - dragged a browser widget - changed the url - created an apk - moved to Android - effectively a 'white-out' browser. Using your test browser zip it sort of works - except the browser is stuck to the side and resizing doesn't work. In fact if you try set the fullscreen...

CONCEPT FOR SPEED CAMERA APP

My phone camera takes 3 images to create a HDR image. Each image is taken .x second apart. So imagine if that was a picture of a moving car - from behind. There would be 3 number plates spaced 0.x seconds apart. By calculating the pixel distance between each number plate the distance moved by the ca...

Re: datagrid scroller android

you may find it works on pre- version 7 e.g. 6.7. Which one I don't know.

I found my Android scroller didn't work using v7. But maybe it works in 7.0.2 (rc1) - I haven't checked yet.

Re: getting Contact Details from Android

keys not supported android.

That is what is so frustrating with LC - everyone assumes because it works on Mac/iPhone....

Perhaps 40% of the functions on Mobgui don't work on Android. Yet we pay the same price - similarly LC.

Shouldn't we have a 40% Android dev discount?

Re: getting Contact Details from Android

I really like Livecode - I wish a big company like Google would buy and make it big. And put discipline into version control. I could have knocked out 20s of apps in 2014 if I didn't keep hitting problems in Livecode versions - functions that did then didn't work, then did then didn't work. I may ha...

Re: Is there any really successfully App build with LC?

DevBoyLars... Why must you 'run down' liveCode ?... the question you should ask yourself is... 'Am I good enough to write an app that would appear in the top lists of the app store ?', as it seems that you think your shortcomings will be perhaps lessened by using a language that has produced an app...

Re: Virtual Keyboard...

I am able to size and move osk. Clicking little blue keyboard in front of On-Screen Keyboard. OSK restricts the size it can be reduced to while it seemed able to expand - not sure what the limit is. It is also able to use print screen. I am trying to think 'when' I would use a Virtual Keyboard (VK) ...

Re: Writing and sorting list advice

As I use LC with Windows & Android I noticed 'msg' - as I've never used. I checked it says Linux, Mac, Windows - but not iphone/Android.

If you click Start, where windows 7 where it says search programs and files type keyb - you get an on-screen keyboard. So for a few lines windows 7 app you could use http://livecode.com/developers/api/6.0.2/function/shell/ with keyb. You'd have to experiment a bit to get it to work. You may be able ...
