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: Current IDE Oddities and Obstacles

Here's both an oddity and an obstacle to both new and experienced users: Note from Dictionary entry for topLeft" "Important! The order of the top and left parameters is reversed compared to the property name: left comes first, then top." There are similar notes for topRight, bottomLeft, and bottomRi...

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.

Re: Problem with "dissolve" visual effect

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 ...

Re: Embeding fonts in stack

Thanks for your input, Klaus, Jacque, and Herman. Sorry to take so long to respond. I want to follow up on this at a later time when I'm further along with my project. I realized after posting my question that I was putting the cart before the horse. Although I have been wondering about embedding fo...

Re: Problem with "dissolve" visual effect

Thanks, Simon! It sad to think of hours of wasted time people spend on undocumented featues. Not to mention the frustration. I've long held that an undocumented feature is actually an undocumented bug. If only the LiveCode developers would pledge that no feature would be released until its documenta...

Re: Problems with message box and script editor screens

Thanks, Simon. I tried using LC 8.0 dp 13 when I recently picked-up using LiveCode again (having not used it since version 5.5.3. I've reverted to 7.1.1 for my project. There are enough problems and strangenesses even in so-called “stable releases of Livecode to keep me from using the more experimen...

Re: Problems with message box and script editor screens

Simon,

I'm having trouble understanding your suggestion about the Dictionary. When I hover my mouse over any icon all I get is a tool tip (and not always that.

I've attached a reduced screen shop to help you see what I'm talking about.

I appreciate your help.

Thanks for the good news, Richard.

I'm still hopeful that someone will be able to tell me how I can modify size of the text in the Contents pane in Community LC version 7.1.1.
