Re: API call works on livecode, but not on android

Do you have the internet permission selected in your standalone settings?

Re: Old topic about table fields

This bug still exists in the latest 9.5 . The workaround still works, but it would be nice to see this very old bug squashed.

Re: BBC article about HyperCard

Organic grass roots comments like the ones we see following such articles are far more powerful than any message conveyed by having company shills trolling blogs I agree. It was a 2012 google search for "Why did hypercard die?" that lead me to LiveCode via the comment section of this article: http:...

Re: LCB Object Error

Somewhere in these forums is a workaround, but I don't use the Browser widget often enough to have taken note of the solution. There is a shell script here: http://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=30355&p=161872&hilit=linux+browser+widget+64+bit#p161872 I am not on a linux machine at the mo...

(of course I could be quite wrong in this respect, but why do I have the feeling that arrays "die" once
a stack/standalone is shut down?)

Something like DevaWriter is a bit out of my league BUT, you can store an array in a custom property, which may or may not be useful for your needs.

Re: How to flow text around an image in LC?

I just tested this in LC 9.02 on Ubuntu 18.04, and it does seem to work as expected without locking the screen. If I lock the screen for visual effect, It does exhibit the behavior your video shows - the buttons also move and not just the object being hidden. If I use lock screen for visual effect i...

Re: How to flow text around an image in LC?

Hey bogs, if you don't want it to move the whole card, you can do like this:

Code: Select all

lock screen for visual effect in rect (the rect of your group)
hide group whatever
unlock screen with visual effect shrink to top

Re: Getting Started

I think what you are looking for is "middleware", basically you want to move the portion of the code that interacts with the DB to a server side script, so as not to hard code your credentials into the app itself. It seems that this is done most often with PHP, but there is more info and a simple ex...

Re: Help me with this error

Just a guess, but have you tried putting quotes around "output" in the offending line? You may also need to add something like:

Code: Select all

... after field "output" of card "YourCardWithFieldOutput" of stack "YourStack"

Re: Location of the live code-server file on cPanel

It should work as long as your pages are saved as .lc files instead of HTML. I just uploaded this simple test to my site on LiveCode Hosting (tio), and it seems to work as expected.

Code: Select all

<?lc

put "Hello World!"&"<br>"& the date &"<br>" & the time

?>

Re: File written to disk truncated to multiples of 4096 chars

I have an "on idle" handler running while testing. I wonder if that could be the reason. Can you use a "send in time" instead of idle? I can't remember where, but I was warned off of using idle unless absolutely necessary. Send in time works everywhere I've ever needed it. There's this little bit f...
