Re: Weird image control behavior in edit mode-- Is this a bu

Hi Richard, Clicking to edit is so ingrained that I keep forgetting, and clicking images on the card to edit them. By adding the "tool" check it now stays on the same card. This definitely will help with my sanity going forward. Thanks again.

Re: Weird image control behavior in edit mode-- Is this a bu

Hi Richard, Sorry if I'm being dense, but the problem I'm trying to describe doesn't involve image transparency areas, the dictionary entry or stand-alones. When I select an image in the IDE, with the editing pointer tool, mouse events are still getting executed. In bug report terms: ACTION: click a...

Re: Weird image control behavior in edit mode-- Is this a bu

Hi Richard, I downloaded the test you made, and was getting different behavior with it than with my stack. After looking at your stack, I think the problem I was seeing is with the mouseRelease command, rather than mouseUp. In my project I was call mouseUp from within the mouseRelease, so it could h...

Weird image control behavior in edit mode-- Is this a bug?

Hi all, It appears that if you have a mouseUp handler in the stack script, selecting an image control in edit mode will execute the mouseUp. All the other controls seem to behave as expected-- they get the selection outline. But the image gets the selection outline, and then the mouseUp executes. I ...

Re: Sqlite: storing fields from multiple cards in one table

Hi Mikemc, If I understand your concern, to access fields on multiple cards you need to add the card name that the field is on. So instead of the text of field "fieldName" use the full path: the text of field "fieldName" of card "cardName" By specifying the path, LC will be able to find you fields n...

Attach behavior to mobile control? Possible?

Hi all, I would like to be able to touch a video in a mobile player to toggle between play and pause without having to display the controller, or create a separate button. This should be easy enough with mobileControlDo and Play or Pause. The problem is I can't seem to figure out how to attach an LC...

Re: Two very useful OOP-style features

The behavior list sort of works "backward" than what we already have, in that it "points" to handlers in child objects as opposed to multiple child objects "pointing" to a script in the behavior button. Do I have that right? Hi Craig, I think that is exactly it. In the chained behaviors, you have c...

Re: Trying to create a slide up drawer in stack

If you are doing a UI in the "drawer", group all your buttons and background graphic together. Then put Randy's script on the group.

Re: Two very useful OOP-style features

If not chained, how is behavior precedence resolved if more than on behavior has the same handler? Hi Richard, In the Adobe-OOP implementation (Director/Lingo/Javascript, Flash/ActionScript, Flex/ActionScript Dreamweaver/Javascript) each behavior has its own event handlers, and they execute in the ...

Re: Two very useful OOP-style features

but somehow think that there is a higher layer of OOP that I am not getting here. Sorry it to so long to respond and clarify. I've been under a hard deadline for the past month or so. If I'm understanding chained behaviors (and admittedly I'm still pretty new to LiveCode, so may be missing somethin...

Externals for Windows Question

Hi, I have a simple utility app that has no database functionality. Yet the stand-alone .exe has an "eternals" folder with the revdb.dll file in it. I didn't specify database support, and use no database functionality, so I'm not sure why it is there? It appears with both the automatic and manual ex...

Re: LC 7.0.4 and Xcode 6.3 - once again broken?

I do the same thing as Robl mentioned above. I keep several versions of Xcode installed. You can either have them running from different folders, or rename each to a unique name-- I personally like the folder method. This will keep you functioning without any waste of time going forward. Just point ...

Two very useful OOP-style features

I'd like to suggest two OOP features that would greatly enhance the ability to create functionality, and organize and reuse code in LC. (I cringe every time I have to copy and paste identical code for lack of an easier way to reuse it.) First, would be the addition of independent scripting objects, ...

Video On Mobile LC-Noob Question

Hi All, this is probably an easy LiveCode-Newbie question, but really bugging me. The only way I've been able to get video to play on Android and IOS is by invoking the native mobile player via the mobileControl commands. I'm confused though, because in the language reference, the LiveCode Player Co...
