Re: Can the void space within a group be made "Clickable"?

Thanks all. Fascinating. Opaquer - Thanks for the card script idea. I can see how that would also work. Dunbarx - Thanks for the info about the "solidity" of a group. That certainly matches what I'm seeing. - Yes - I think that a group property that allowed void mouse clicks to be trapped would be u...

Re: Can the void space within a group be made "Clickable"?

Thanks Thierry. Yes - it would certainly be easy to do it by adding a group-sized object and layering it below everything else. I was just curious about whether LC might have a way of detecting clicks that occurred within the left/right/top/bottom bounds of a group, but not over an object of that gr...

Re: Can the void space within a group be made "Clickable"?

Thanks Kelly I may not have explained this properly. The following answers "Hi" if I click on an object located within group "XYZ" On MouseUp // Stored as a script of Group "XYZ" Answer "Hi" End MouseUp But if I click on the empty space between two objects located within group "XYZ", then it doesn't...

Can the void space within a group be made "Clickable"?

I've been playing around with mouse message handlers where the script is located on a group control. I've discovered that a message is only sent to the group script if I click on an actual object within the group. If I click on the void space, the empty area between the groups objects, then the grou...

Re: "Could not compile service support class"

FYI I just got the Service Support Class error message. One moment I could compile for Android, then 10 minutes later I couldn't. I hadn't changed anything related to the Mobile Support settings. After restarting my computer (and making zero other changes) I could compile for Android again. "Have yo...

Re: Unable to locate Play Service dependency - BarcodeScanner issue [SOLVED]

Thanks Sphere. I tried a variety of methods for solving this before stumbling upon this - https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=22384 Following Panos instructions I had it fixed in a couple of minutes. I've now got an Android barcode scanner deployed onto my test device. It works great. VERY ...

Re: Unable to locate Play Service dependency - BarcodeScanner issue [SOLVED]

Back to LC after a few months break. Same issue. I'm getting an "Unable to locate Play Service" error message when trying to create Android Standalone with the Barcode Scanner Widget. The error message goes away if I delete the widget. I'm not (yet) using any settings on the widget. Just adding the ...

FFI - how do I get the value of an Android field/constant

I just know that this is going to turn out to be incredibly easy, but I've spent a day working on it and got no where. Using the FFI, how do I get the value of a field (constant)? For example, for android.os.Environment (https://developer.android.com/reference/android/os/Environment), how do I retri...

Re: Getting started with Java bindings - Solved

Thanks Paul. You solved it. I had - Standalone App Settings > Inclusions > Search for required inclusions When I changed it to - Standalone App Settings > Inclusions > Select inclusions, and manually selected my new library It worked fine on my Android device. I should have thought of that. Doh! Tha...

Re: Getting started with Java bindings

Thanks Paul. Try & Catch don't seem to have been implemented in LCB. They don't appear in the dictionary and I get a compile error if I try to use them. I haven't worked with Log before. I've tried a few things, based on what I read in the dictionary, but I can't work out how to output what has been...

Re: Getting started with Java bindings

Thanks Paul. Yes - I'd also got to thinking that Windows must be unsupported, hence my questions 2 & 3. Given that I cut-n-paste the code from the extending LC guide, I'd have hoped that it would work on Android. I've currently got no idea how to even begin to debug this. I tried capturing "the resu...

Re: Getting started with Java bindings

Thanks. I've got about 1 day on each of LCB, FFI & Java. It's a steep learning curve. BTW - is there any LC Forum that you're NOT following ;-)

Getting started with Java bindings

I have a two (hopefully modest) tasks* that I'd like to use LCB + FFI + Java to achieve on Android. Knowing almost nothing about any of these three, I thought that I'd start with a very small training exercise. I had previously completed the LCB Hello World example. So: 1) I cut-n-paste the javauuid...

Re: Storage permissions & API call

Thanks. I think that I've worked out how I can achieve what I want. A Livecode Builder Library utilising the Foreign Function Interface to execute a Java script that will return the file path to the Android Downloads folder. Now all that I need to do is teach myself LCB, the FFI & Java ;-)
