Re: Newbie question re HTML5

The default page created when you deploy an HTML5 stack is just for testing.

If you look in the "HTML5 Deployment" guide in the LiveCode documentation, there are some detailed instructions that describe how to embed an HTML5 standalone in your own web page.

Re: mergExt Indy Latest: missing docs & externals?

You don't need to download mergExt separately from the LiveCode installer or app bundle any more. It's included, as is all the documentation.

You can read the documentation for all of the mergExt externals directly from 'Dictionary' window inside the LiveCode IDE.

Re: How is this test failing?

Hmm, we should probably get the IDE to ignore user preference files when running the IDE tests. Could you please file a bug report about it for us please?

Re: How is this test failing?

I think there are some missing dependency rules in the build system at the moment. You may have to nuke it from orbit:

Code: Select all

rm -rf linux-x86_64-bin build-linux-x86_64

Re: HTML5 Blackjack w/REST API Sample

Adding the ability to send messages back into LiveCode is something we're currently hoping to get working in December or January. It will be a bit more involved than the "do as JavaScript" feature. I made some comments about it here: https://www.mail-archive.com/use-livecode@lists.runrev.com/msg8060...

Re: MCCodeunitEvalIsAmongTheCodeunitsOf not found

Ah, sorry. By "this" I am referring to the problems with MCCodeunitEvalIsAmongTheCodeunitsOf and MCNothingEvalIsNothingEqualsToNothing . Did you file a bug about the problems with resource files? I don't think that anything was changed that would affect resource files, but probably something subtle ...

Re: MCCodeunitEvalIsAmongTheCodeunitsOf not found

I spent a while looking into this today and it looks like fixing this would require rather extensive changes to the way that LiveCode Builder code is compiled and loaded. Unfortunately it means that LiveCode 8.1 and LiveCode 9 modules are going to be incompatible. We should bump the module version f...

Re: Why LCB exists?

LCB does some things that just can't be done in LiveCode Script (and indeed we don't want to do in LiveCode Script). It fills a very important niche: a language that can be used to do many of the things that we would previously use C++ to do, but which has similar accessible syntax to LiveCode Scrip...

Re: External communication

Okay, I have done some quick tests locally. Can you please confirm which edition of LiveCode 9 DP 2 you're using? The following works fine for me (Community edition, Firefox 49.0 running on Fedora 24): if the platform is "HTML5" then do "document.title" as "JavaScript" put the result into field 1 en...

Re: External communication

This is very interesting -- and somewhat concerning. Does JavaScript evaluation seem to work fine, as long as you are not trying to get a result back?

I've never seen this before; please open a bug report and attach your LCB source code so that we can take a look at it! :shock:

Re: External communication

I've drafted a blog post that gives a worked example of using this new capability to manipulate the document surrounding the HTML5 app, and we're currently hoping to publish it tomorrow. I wonder what's going on with the XMLHttpRequest? This could be a problem for anyone trying to make a liburl back...

Re: External communication

I think this is failing because you are trying to do a synchronous fetch using an asynchronous API. When you call "LoadXMLDoc()", it creates and sends the HTTP request -- and then returns to LiveCode. The result of calling "LoadXMLDoc()" is empty. A bit later, when the HTTP request completes, it cal...
