Re: What is tsNet-x86.dll ?

Ok, now for another question. Currently, my app and the 'externals' folder sits on the desktop. Is it considered best practice to put the app and 'externals' folder into a parent folder?

Apologies for what may be a dumb question but I am still getting acquainted with how LC works.

Thanks,
Jon

Re: What is tsNet-x86.dll ?

Ah ha! I added a "Check For Update" function which would involve downloading the update (if available) from my web server.

Thank you so much!
Jon :)

What is tsNet-x86.dll ?

Hi all, I've been working on an app that has been compiled several times for Windows but today is the first time that an "Externals" folder appeared along side the compiled app and within was a "tsNet-x86.dll". What is this DLL? I assume I must have added some code to my project that needs this dll ...

Re: Download file to desktop...

Nevermind. I just added the following to each sub stack:

on preOpenStack
exit preOpenStack
end preOpenStack

That seems to have done the trick!

Thanks,
Jon

Re: Download file to desktop...

Me again,

Now for the next hurdle. Because the aforementioned download code is part of a preOpenStack handler, when I open a sub stack within in the project, the preOpenStack code executes which I don't want. How do I avoid this when opening a sub stack?

Thanks,
Jon

Download file to desktop...

Hi all, I want my (cross platform) app to be able to download a file from my website. I want the file to download to the DESKTOP regardless of whether the user is on a Mac or Windows PC. The file to download is on my web server and I've tested the URL and the file downloads fine. I just can't seem t...

Re: Printing Weirdness...

Hi Jacque,

I think the printScale suggestion did the trick!

Best regards,

Re: Printing Weirdness...

I've tried setting the margins from zero to 18. Margins get adjusted but I still get a blank page the first time I print. No blank page on all subsequent prints.

I'll live with it.

Best regards,
Jon

Re: Printing Weirdness...

Hi Craig,

Thank you for the reply. "select empty" seems to have solved the first issue.

Commenting the two lines of code seems to have done the trick BUT the printed card gets shifted to the right and down thus cutting it off (I am assuming it's a margin thing).

Best regards,
Jon

Printing Weirdness...

Hi all, I have a couple minor printing issues and wanted to see if anyone has any suggestions: 1. My card is 8.5x11. When I print it for the first time (and only the first time), I get a blank page before I get the printed card (two total pages). If I print the card again, I only get the printed car...

Re: Set Controls as Non-Printable?

Craig, I have never played with custom properties, let alone know how to implement them. Please understand that I am an LC newbie who came from a HyperCard background (kind of dates it doesn't it? LOL). From everything I have seen and read, I am blown away by LC's capabilities (compared to HyperCard...

Re: Set Controls as Non-Printable?

Hi Craig, Thank you for the reply. Fortunately, there are only 4 controls that need hidden prior to printing which I have scripted. I wonder if perhaps a non-printing property is something worth consideration by LC to add in a future version of LC. I haven't played with custom properties yet but wil...

Set Controls as Non-Printable?

Hi all, Although I know I can write a script to hide buttons before printing, is there some way of assigning a non-printing property to a button (or other control)? I am working on an app that will include the printing of cards but don't want the buttons on said cards to appear on printed output. Th...

Re: Set File Icon?

Hi Jacque, My apologies for the very slow response. After changing the 'Open With' setting (in the Get Info dialog box) for the file types I have designed my app to work with, I just double-click one of files (of course, my app also has the necessary CFBundleTypeExtension info within it). My app ope...
