Re: TIP: How to resize the stack with the window

This might be a bit annoying while working on the app in the LiveCode IDE and running the stack there, though ... So make sure to disable the code snippet there or to set the fullscreen to false again at some point. You could do something like this to alleviate some of the annoyance: on openStack i...

Now, if you wanted an actual stack running in a browser window, you'd probably use the HTML5 deployment, which you can check out for free in the community edition.

Re: textSize of stack

I am not near a computer at the moment, but setting the scalefactor of the stacks might make them easier to read.

Re: Barcode scanner for android

I'm not aware of one, but you can get the Indy version of LC right now for as little as free for the first year, which includes the Android barcode scanner widget.

Re: Large scale cheap storage deal...

If you need a bit more space, I've been using a couple 4Tb Western Digital "My Passport" drives for the last couple years with no problems. They go for about $99 on Amazon.

Re: Ancient Book

I have the 2nd edition of the Danny Goodman thing: it reads like an exercise in being as long-winded as possible: occasionally I look up something in it so I know what to avoid when I prepare handouts for kids in my school. I don't know about the kids of today, but Danny Goodman's book helped me gr...

Re: New York user group?

Maybe a bit too far to get a regular group going, but it would be nice to meet some LiveCoders. Anybody interested in HOPE2020 (Hackers on Planet Earth conference) taking place July 31 - Aug 2 at St. Johns University in Queens? I don't see a schedule just yet, but there's always a ton of great talks...

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:...
