Re: Running Hello World on Android 2.2

Thank you. JDK wasn't recognized. Installed again and showed up. After restarting device everything worked fine. This might be the problem with my Linux testing too.

Running Hello World on Android 2.2

Greetings. I have the Android SDK running and am using LC 6.7 dp 7. I had a simple I wrote that I could not get to run on the emulator. I back tracked and used the Hello World tutorial for Android. I keep getting a "Could Not Compile Application Class" error. Any idea what this means? Someone else h...

Re: Design best practises - libraries, sub-stacks

Yeah, I had the same questions. To me, it is kind of funky since I have been a programmer in other, more structured, languages. In any case, check out this thread:

Re: Code organization

Thank you all again. So I think I understand how this is accomplished in LiveCode. For example, if I wanted to create a code library, I would create a separate stack. Within this stack I would have scripts (and not necessarily an interface) that I could reference in whatever project I was coding by ...

Re: Code organization

Thank you. I understand the hierarchy concept, this is basically the same thing as scope. .Net (and C) have the same thing. Your function/object can exist at different levels and the compiler (or interpreter) will go up the hierarchy until it finds what you are looking for. This is very clear in .NE...

Re: Code organization

I reviewed that. I'll take a look at the example stack but the documentation doesn't seem to address what I am talking about. I'd like to have a module with a bunch of functions that I can reuse across projects. For example, I have a VB code file that I wrote that I use on almost all my vb projects ...

Code organization

Hi. Where do you put common functions that you may want to use across cards? I am thinking something like modules but I didn't see any equivalent in live code everything references a card or object on a card. Thanks.

Re: LiveCode Bug or my error

Nope. Same thing on this syntax. For now, I'm going to remove the offending code and just write some data check routines in the calculation piece rather than when the entry is completed. Very weird. Hmmm... the value might be trying to resolve something the engine doesn't like? Try if field "txtSell...

Re: Formatting numeric values

I felt the same way you do about formatting numbers, I had to look a bit. Did you look at the Format function? Here is what I did to print a dollar amount: put "$" & format("%.2f",rightPrice) into field lblRightPRice Luckily I was familiar with this (sort of) due to coding in C a long time ago. C us...

Klaus and others,

Is it possible to write a C wrapper for Windows DLL? I assume you do something similar when executing LiveCode Windows

Re: Syntax problem, how is then missing in this statement

What about Switch Case? Any time you have a multiple (well, more than 2) cases I use a Switch Case (Select Case in other languages).

Ok. How does one determine if it is user error? Someone else check it?
