Re: URL specification change LC8.1 to LC9.x

This is certainly one of those times :D Sri, do me a favor and try this (works on 10.6.6 with the latest Lc I can run) - Same stack setup as above, just a stack with a browser, in the card or stack script put - on mouseUp local tFile put "/Users/<your user name/myApp/FileName.pdf" into tFile # alter...

Re: URL specification change LC8.1 to LC9.x

Hi Sri, In Mac , /Users is the root directory and /Users/JohnDoe is the "Home" directory. So, it is file:// followed by the full path name (giving rise to "///") And it works in LC8.1, so the syntax is correct. Well, I don't have a Mac that can run 9.x, so I am probably out for the rest of this trou...

Re: URL specification change LC8.1 to LC9.x

If you didn't make a typo in your first post, it would appear first of all that you have an extra "/" in the file path, i.e. - file:// / Users/JohnDoe/myApp/A101.pdf If it looks that way in code, thats a problem. Other than that, the url can be specified just as in every other version of Lc back to ...

Re: Loading failure at launch

What use is it to declare locals anyway, since they always work without declaration? Erm, I think you are confusing 'local' variables with 'temporary' variables, i.e. - #declared local variable at top of script is available to all handlers below it.... local thisVar on mouseDown # this temporary va...

Re: introspection: current handler name?

@Bogs And, yeah, I get what you're saying, Bogs, but I can try, can't I My post is a good case in point, I was trying to encourage you to go right on trying, just don't sweat it if it doesn't come across as you intended, eventually it will (if you hang in there long enough), but I think that was lo...

Re: introspection: current handler name?

I'm trying to get better at communicating on this board, as I seem to have a knack for making people think I'm after one thing when I'm actually after another. I've been trying to accomplish that since I signed on here, but you're fighting a few things that are (imho) hard to overcome, not the leas...

Re: Can you make Apple Watch apps in Live Code?

Hm. The story I was thinking of wasn't actually an app on the watch, it was to design logo images for the watch, my bad :oops: But, I also seem to remember another story where someone created an app on a watch, which Klaus (I think) also remembers. Unfortunately, no such luck finding that one again :?

Re: Can you make Apple Watch apps in Live Code?

I think that is a bit of a tough question. I don't think it is a supported feature (but could be wrong). However, I remember reading in a way back news letter about someone making an app for his watch (FitBit (?)), I know it wasn't an android or apple product, so I suspect it could be possible to do...

Re: Code Organization

Hi, I know you could put code in the card but often the same code will need to be referenced from other cards. How is this resolved? You may put scripts on stack script too. -------- Best regards Jean-Marc you can also put all of your ahndlers/functions into the stack script of your mainstack. This...

Re: Code Organization

I think what JackieBlue1970 is looking for would be more akin to a library , or script only stack . Either would work for separating code from the objects in the working stack for re-usability. You might also want to look into behaviors , although from my understanding of your question, the first tw...

Re: The death of grass?

I rarely poke my nose in here, and when I do I often can't find discussions I posted to previously or decide where in the multitude of options there would be interesting discussions. You know, I've heard that said before, and I'm not sure why it would be so difficult to locate. Just in case anyone ...

Re: LC on ReactOS?

Well, there is also the train of thought that says all software is *always* in beta, since no one I can recall has ever turned out bug free software.

Re: LC on ReactOS?

the two OSes you mention are both clones of an even older OS Odd statement . . . Guess you could be excused for never having heard of a small company over here called "Xerox" :P In any case, they developed a little thang called the "Alto", which was hosting the first purpose developed GUI interface...
