Re: Does Browser widget make a good browser?

I complained to LC support. I explained the importance to us (and others). I got this response his morning: Dear Sid, After a chat with the dev team, I am happy to inform you that this fix is scheduled for the next release of LiveCode, 9.0 dp 9 and 8.1.7 rc 1. The status of the bug report should upd...

Re: Does Browser widget make a good browser?

I agree with PBH - it is ridiculous and even odd to ignore for OVER a YEAR A bug that causes a simple HTML command/function to CRASH the web browser. That makes it an inviable widget - only the very foolish would deploy an App With a component that can crash the App when the user attempts to use a v...

Re: Does Browser widget make a good browser?

That is even worse than I understood before - it is one thing to not work, but quite another to CRASH! That issue would not only mean you could not use the browser with dropbox, but NOT with 80 MILLION odd WordPress sites, FACEBOOK! and God knows how many others. Buttons for uploading images, files ...

Re: Does Browser widget make a good browser?

Thanks Richard :-) And I can say, this is not about the UI as much as that access be controllable and consistent. ALL the work and the UI is actually on the web / server side - and it expects a web browser. (the reasons I can't say, but trust me, that is how they designed it - that part, was not us ...

Re: Does Browser widget make a good browser?

Thanks for your input Richard. Without disclosing what I can't: Our experience is the opposite of yours. We have 37 projects in the corporate World with embedded browsers - most done in Xojo or Delphi - baceasue, as I said, It is a mobile world now, and Apps have to be able to integrate with the web...

Re: Does Browser widget make a good browser?

It is a mobile world now - I personally would consider a FULLY functional Browser componenant as critical, NOT "peripheral". And uploading files is NOT just about "dropbox" - it too is a critical function! Would prefer not to have to "kludge" that. ;-) Based on what you are telling us, the browser w...

Re: Does Browser widget make a good browser?

lol - "...is possible to put a copy of the users default browser into a stack,..." is an interesting question as well. :-) I am surprised there are not more on the forum who have experience with this they could relate. I am obviously not the only one with a bit less than "in depth" experience on the...

Re: Does Browser widget make a good browser?

I do not know if the browser widget is based on CEF - that's type of Information I would like to know. The browser widget was introduced to version 8, for community, Indy And Business editions. And no, I am talking about using the widget to create a stack screen for Browsing a web site/page, not cal...

Does Browser widget make a good browser?

Whether it is the community version or business version (we have both), can you make a decent "web browser" (for browsing several sites) with the browser widget? Our other multi-platform compilers (Delphi, Xojo, etc.) have fairly decent "browsers" for interfacing with web sites. We have used them ex...

Re: Best Place To Store a Lot of Text inside a stack?

Thanks, but - A LOT of text? And a custom property of ...?

I was sort of looking for something it would be easy to just cut and paste the text into - like in Delphi (object pascal) we would just use a "memo" field to store any amount of text.

Best Place To Store a Lot of Text inside a stack?

If I wanted to store a large amount of text, like a document, INSIDE my App - not an external file - that
I could, elsewhere in the app, do things like read it (looking for a word), display, write it out, etc.
what would be the the best pace or best way to do That? Thanks :-)

Re: Indy Users Can't Use Community Code, Share Code or Buy C

jacque, I appreciate your input, and as you have presented is probably the way it SHOULD be interpreted, and what it should actually mean. Unfortunately, according to the lawyer, it could also be interpreted as I have outlined, albeit briefly. And there's the rub. :-) The wording is vague, potential...

Re: Indy Users Can't Use Community Code, Share Code or Buy C

Richmond62, What you have been doing is the same thing we ALL do in development environments. To share and reuse code is normal, even essential. We all assume that we can do so, as we have been for years. YET, the EULA says "...This Licensed Edition is not compatible with the terms of the GPL and su...

Re: Indy Users Can't Use Community Code, Share Code or Buy C

Yes we do - but our responses, are not the responses that matter on this subject. :-) And I thought as you about the EULA, till I got the phone call that said "you need to stop and reconsider this based on what I have read". Hence my quest for . . . elucidation. :-) I appreciate the offer to help. I...

Re: Indy Users Can't Use Community Code, Share Code or Buy C

Richard, I disagree - I think license restrictions affect everyone. The EULA - not I - specifically stats that code created on the open source edition (for whatever purpose) is not to be used by Indy's - even if the author "releases" it. That you can not use code you didn't author, etc., etc. etc. T...
