Helvetica Neue and OSX development for Android

Hi all. Hope someone may have run into this already. I am trying to implement an Android app in OSX which uses Helvetica Neue and Helvetica Neue Bold. Livecode asks for ttf fonts for mobile deployment. In OSX Helvetica Neue is a dfont file. I don't have a ttf version. I thought that using a ttf vers...

Google Maps API - click marker and pass info to Livecode

I have a Google map with markers in a browser object in an iOS app and I want to be able to click on the markers and have them pass th...

Re: Passing arguments to Javascript from Livecode

Just saw this - sorry! I bet it's way too late but anyways... I call it from Livecode like this: put specialFolderPath("engine") & "/billboards.csv" into pathToFile put url ("file:" & pathToFile) into tContents put tContents into lContents // make a copy of this data to memory for accessing when doi...

Google Maps API - click marker and pass info to Livecode

Hi.

The subject says it all. I have a Google map with markers and I want to be able to click on them and have them pass their name/identifier to Livecode. It must be simple no? - just I'm not too hot on Javascript. Can anyone help?

Kind regards, Paul.

Re: Taking a photo without native controls

Thanks. This may be possible. I would need confirmation that this camera syntax works though to be able to access the money to buy the license. Perhaps I could send you the student's stack to check? Another important issue is that the image would need to be saved on to the Android device's SD card. ...

Re: Taking a photo without native controls

Thanks for getting back. Ah - I see. Students here are using non-commercial version as you may imagine. I'll explain this important detail to the student. We have a total hack workaround triggering another machine to take a shot from a hidden camera.nBut it would be much tidier conceptually and oper...

Re: Taking a photo without native controls

Hello all. Just caught up with this - a flurry of posts after a quiet first few days! Thanks to all involved. Neil - thanks especially for the lead. I tried the code in 7.1.1 but couldn't get any response from the camera on the Android device. I ensured I had the camera Requirements and Restrictions...

Taking a photo without native controls

Hi. I have a student who is developing a simple Android app and is wanting to take a photo without the user knowing (don't worry - it's part of an art school degree show installation about privacy - not a sleazy app for public deployment). I was wondering if it was possible to bypass the OS controls...

Re: Passing arguments to Javascript from Livecode

Yes indeed. Sorted. Thanks!
MobileControlDo browserID, "execute", ("setMarkerAt(" && lat & "," & lng & ")")
Wrapping the script parameter in parentheses was where I was going wrong.

Passing arguments to Javascript from Livecode

Hi. This isn't really iOS specific - but it is mobile-specific - I just happen to be developing an iOS app and I've come across it. My question is very simple and n00b, but it's driving me mental. All I want to do is pass some arguments to a Javascript function. I am trying to do some work with Goog...

Re: modification date of detailed files in Android

Hi all.

Yes - it seems to work fine on OSX, Windows and iOS, but not in Android. Unless I'm missing something. This breaks my code badly and I don't know how to fix it.

Kind regards, Paul.

modification date of detailed files in Android

Hi. I'm updating my simple app and have hit another issue. I'm saving a binary file to the Android specialFolderPath("documents") directory. Every time my app launches it checks whether the file is there. If so if asks for the detailed file information on it. I am returned a comma-delimited list as ...

Re: Standalone app now 80mb instead of 20mb after upgrading

Thanks for your advice. I updated to 7.0.5 and it has now effectively halved the size to around 40mb. I understand that as Livecode develops builds will get larger. I am under pressure to get this app out so don't have time to roll back to 6.x to remove unicode etc. I'd need to download and install ...

Re: App not running beyond iPhone 5 in simulator in 7.0.4 RE

Hi. Good news - I resolved this. It had to do with graphics acceleration and compositorType. I originally had the app set the acceleratedGraphics of this stack to true. I also had the compositorTypes set to "openGL". When I disabled these the app ran on all devices. But... ... it wasn't accelerated,...
