Re: mousedoubleup

If you need to handle both and have them do completely different things, then typically this means there's a flaw in the UI design. It should perhaps be avoided, but what about the OSX Finder? It has singe and double clicks (and delays before you can edit a name? Or text editors which set the inser...

Combine array in key order

combine array at present gives unexpected results. Extending the command to make it look like the sort command would be useful. Example: I had to mark up each line of a long text with html tags, depending on the content of the line and also the contents of the two adjacent lines. The original algor...

Re: combine scrambles array

Hi. No mistake. LC arrays are purely associative, … … . The array will appear the way LC feels like assembling it, not the way you fed it. But this should never matter. Craig Newman Craig, I disagree. I just lost several hours trying to figure out why combine produced an unexpected result. There ar...

Re: LC Server and UTF8

Thanks.
I have removed BOMs everywhere. They also interfere if you use them in .htaccess files and other places.
OK for now.

Re: Antialiased vector graphics in LiveCode 6.5.1

Same bug exists in 7.0. Plus: if you save as stand-alone, the antialiasing is set to false for all graphics that have a fillrule set. I use the fillrule to get "holes" in graphics. In my particular case I solved the problem with a few lines of code in a preopenstack handler: repeat with i=1 to the n...

Re: LC Server and UTF8

Thanks wsamples, that seems indeed to solve the problem for now. Sigh. Yes, BBEdit does have a preference setting to choose between "UTF-8" (which was what I used) and "UTF-8 with BOM". I have now set it to output the byte order mark. So: (1) I suppose the livecode server does not try to guess the b...

Re: LC Server and UTF8

Thanks wsamples, I was "off" for a while so saw your reply only now. I must say I do not quite understand the sequence you went through. I use BBEdit for my pages, and they all start like this: <!DOCTYPE html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"...

LC Server and UTF8

Hi, I just identified a problem with my new site: all pages are in UTF-8, but this does not work if the file passes through the LC Server. I.e.: I write a page containing accented characters such as é and ü, in UTF-8. If the extension is .html it displays perfectly. If I change the extension to .lc ...

Re: stack as button

Thanks everyone for your most helpful replies. I'll try to give some comments: First a little more background: with the advent of Lion the PPC emulator went and I lost Golive. I have for over a year now tried to get its functionality back, with little result. I now have to use a simple editor like B...

stack as button

I want to make a standalone stack such that it runs a handler when the mouse is clicked in a button, even when the stack is NOT the currently active application. Normally, to make a button do something the first click will activate the application and only the second will push the button. Can I circ...

Re: Why does a compass need location?

Yep, that's it! The file is ~/.android/debug.keystore But for that: (1) I have to find a person (you) who has this knowledge in her brain, because finding out in another way is extremely tedious and long, (2) use Tinkertool to make hidden files visible in my home directory. (3) now write the tip in ...

Re: Why does a compass need location?

Yes, your analysis is probably correct. Heinlein said the 21st century would be the age of the great semantic confusion, which I agree it seems to be. But thanks again. Well, and now I'm trying something more sophisticated (a text reader that scrolls automatically), but I get "Install parse failed i...

Re: Why does a compass need location?

Thanks Jacque, that solves it. I was afraid it was like that. It is again a nice example of the semantic mess sometimes created by programmers. There are local sensors: the barometer, the magnetometer, the accelerometer (and the thermometer if there were one). One might put the sound pressure (micro...

Why does a compass need location?

For my first attempt I wrote a very simple compass (can be downloaded as a non-market app at http://www.cailliau.org/C/C.html) To make it work I had to tick the "coarse location" box: req.jpg This is strange, since the accelerometer can be used without, so the magnetometer should also be accessible....
