Re: For which operating system do you need RunRev?

As someone who doesn't understand the ins and outs of operating systems and LC, this may be a silly question, but has there been any discussion or plans for offering LC on Android? There's probably not enough screen space to make it practical to run LC on a phone, but what about on Android tablets? ...

Re: Solved!Problem with repeat command...probably my fault..

Lestroso, Perhaps a small correction for you: In the "myTest" handler you have this line: answer " I don't have found nothing!!" If your actual program is in Italian, and you have just translated the code here for our benefit, then you don't need to do anything. But if your stack displays English pr...

Re: images din't appear when files transfered

What on earth does tq and tqvm mean?
tq = thank you (think phonetically)
tqvm = thank you very much

Re: Session Suggestions for LiveCode Global

It seems doubtful to me that many LC beginners would be willing to pay $299 for a few talks on introductory LC. (Admittedly, the other talks would be of interest to intermediate and advanced users.) Shouldn't material for LC beginners — dare I say it? — be free? 🤡

Re: Mycroft — open source voice assistant

Thanks for your reply Richard. I hope you do explore this as a possible platform on which to develop using LiveCode. Before going on, I should clarify for anyone else reading this, that the company is named Mycroft.ai, their development platform is Mycroft, and they produce several products. Their f...

Mycroft — open source voice assistant

I'm not quite sure where to post this, so I'll start here. This morning I came across a Kickstarter campaign for a product called Mycroft (which I have decided to back). This is an open-sourced voice (and screen) assistant (similar to Alexis). The project was funded within six and a half hours of it...

Re: Proposal for changing a bit the Toolbar

The menu bar could be simplified and shortened by putting the "Sample Stacks", "Tutorials", and "Resources" into a drop-down menu under a "Help" menu title.

Re: Go to a card using its ID

I'm sorry that my previous post contained some misinformation. As Klaus and Jacque said, either line of this code will work in a script: go to card ID 2345 go to card ID tCardID What threw me off was that I was actually trying to use an indirect reference to the card ID number (neither of these work...

Re: Go to a card using its ID

I came across this rather old thread while I was looking for something similar today, and noticed that the tread did not give a direct answer to the original question. In case someone else should be looking for an answer, here is what I have found: It is true, as the original poster noted, that you ...

Re: Problem with "dissolve" visual effect

OK, problem solved!

This code works:

Code: Select all

         lock screen for visual effect
         go to next card
         unlock screen with visual effect "dissolve" 
The quote marks around the desired visual effect are required.

Thanks Simon (and the other previous commentors) for your help.

Simon, Unfortunately, I'm still getting an error message with the code you suggested. Here's the code I using (it's in the stack script of a stack call "Splash" that has a substack called "CD"): on keyUp theKey if theKey is space then if the short name of this stack is "Splash" then hide this stack ...
