Re: character encoding - never ending story

I am still stuck with Russian text in mySQL and LC... ) For now, I can not go through PHP or server side scripting. I need to use the direct connection as described.

Re: character encoding - never ending story - mySQL

I am lost at the moment and asking for help. I have to use international characters UTF-8 encoded, mainly Russian, German and English together. Even though all appears fine when looking on the server and using phpMyAdmin to browse the database, in LiveCode trying all kinds of settings, it does not w...

Re: Problem Android Installation and Emulated Device on Win

For those interested, I found a nice article about Android SKD and deployment which for me gave an idea of what we are doing here... http://www.vogella.com/tutorials/Android/article.html I think it is helpful, if not necessary, to have some more background information and not just instructions on wh...

Re: Possible to build a Excel-like Table

Well, kindly enough from Scott, http://www.runrevplanet.com I received a reply based on my question about the availability of RRP Grid. He wrote that he is currently finishing up on updating the spell checker to LiveCode 8.x and 9.x and will be re-launching this soon. Then - when time allows - he wi...

Re: Very Hard to learn for beginner

Regarding my previous post ... of course, I would also like to see a data grid that can be used more intuitively. Just drawing it up, placing objects such as fields, icons, pictures, etc. into it, and in browse mode, it would just be running when fed with data. Maybe there will be a widget allowing ...

Re: Very Hard to learn for beginner

Regarding the data grid, I somehow understand, more or less, where the problem lies. I think it is not too hard using the dg "as is" without going into much of the template set-up. I also had my learning curve. But to get it running as a simple list of values without changing behavior or trying to p...

Re: Very Hard to learn for beginner

Well, I think for beginners some of the jargon may be difficult to understand, sometimes. What does "IMHO" mean for example? Is it a technical term? Many people here use such capital written words. (I know, it means "in my humble opinion". But does everybody know?) For non-native English speaking LC...

Yes, of course, I know. put field "A1" + field "A2" into field "B3" But you have to build such and other functions dynamically using a script, and not type it. So, you would end up with something like 'put "put field A1 + field A2" into tExecute'...

Re: Scrolling and zooming an application

Thank you vMax and all comments I really like. I tested the example code and it works. But the effect is different. While I was using the scale factor for the whole stack which increases just all objects and everything, you are offering to increase the width and height of the stack itself as well as...

Scrolling and zooming an application

My new test application shall allow users to zoom into the application pane and allow users to use the mouse to scroll around just touching the background of the application pane. This is often seen in applications, especially graphic applications to even zoom to the pixel level of a picture. But al...
