Re: initial method call when app launch

Answered Plus. My epiphany was W3 Schools - http://www.w3schools.com/xml/xml_whatis.asp . That helped in understanding what's in a feed. Crucial. They explain exactly what XML is. Had to read it again and again. :D These scripts do work. I wound up being able to produce this: TFinderNews.png by usin...

You are right there is little to no good documentation on LC7, especially for beginners. The "legwork" you mention was and is, being done, without workable results. Tha...

Re: initial method call when app launch

No need to validate. Feeds I'm using are good and being used on multiple websites.
Still need working sample(s), especially since all the tutorials and lessons are gone.

Re: RSS in LiveCode

Would like to load various RSS news feeds into a page. Some of the content has images. Would like to load that also.
