Re: [SOLVED] LC Syntax

Since SparkOut addressed the actual question, and provided one way to deal with it, I'll suggest yet another. The first line of code - on mouseUp if exists (card "theNewCard") then delete card "theNewCard" - could also be written thus - on mouseUp if "theNewCard" is among the lines of the cardNames ...

Re: A small PR rant

Running a funding campaign at this time makes sense to me. Considering how incredibly generous the offer on Indy was, I have no problems with their stance on a funding campaign either. Blender runs that way full time, as many other OSS projects do, I hope that someday Lc will reach that level of su...

Re: Silly Header

...you simply open the generated html file, and modify the title to be whatever you want. You simply have to remember that with LiveCode there is a longish list of workarounds one has to memorise to get things done. Well, you could always write your own IDE hee hee. That would be a wonderful class ...

Re: A small PR rant

Why do I have a "dirty feeling" that other companies that produce programming environments are not having what are basically 'begging sessions' during the Virus thing? Depends, all opensource projects that I have ever seen could be construed to be 'begging', depending on the use of the term. I have...

Re: A small PR rant

I sure wish if your going to go back and edit your posts that were answered, you'd either - a. start a new post or b. put "edit" or something similar, leaving the content you posted previously :P since it tends to make our conversations a tad disjointed. I do feel you are being a bit fussy about "ov...

Re: Silly Header

You didn't specify exactly what the top of the web thing was, but I am guessing you are talking about the title bar of the browser, and perhaps the heading in the tab. If that is the actual case, you simply open the generated html file, and modify the title to be whatever you want. aPic_emscriptenTo...

Re: A small PR rant

While answering your other post, I decided to include a picture of a palette overriding something else in the IDE, even when the something else has focus - aPic_paletteOverride.png I thought "a jaundiced eye" was meant to be negative, and at present (oddly enough) I seem to be more positive about th...

Re: A small PR rant

there are plenty of improvements just in the visual department that would make the IDE (past and current) far more professional looking. I would prefer to state this: "There are plenty of improvements that could make the IDE (current) even easier to use." You would prefer to state that somehow maki...

Re: Silly Header

If I had to guess, I'd say it is because that is what Lc is using to create HTML5 ....erm....doodads? Pages? Standalones? Emscripten Emscripten is a source-to-source compiler that runs as a back end to the LLVM compiler and produces a subset of JavaScript known as asm.js. It can also produce WebAsse...

Re: A small PR rant

@Richmond - 1. "LiveCode doesn’t feel very professional" . . . I always wonder exactly HOW one defines professional, and I feel a claim like this should backed up with some points of comparison. There are many ways to define 'professional', in almost all of them it comes down really to details and p...

First time I heard about this other functionality.
I think that is because he makes them up as he goes along. You all solved the initial query far too quickly and easily. Next time, hem and haw a lot, and make it look like you really can't decide, THEN spring it on him :P

Re: Nothing new here

In another thread, a user used "new card" as a command inline in a handler. "New card" is indeed a menuItem in "object" menu. But there is no reference to that, er, command, that is, nothing in the dictionary with the word "new" as "new" is not a verb, why that should be the choice. Thank you. At f...

Re: Hiding code in a button in a commercial version of LiveCode

Actually, that was spun off of ajperks thoughts... I wonder if this suggestion might work? Years ago, I developed a large programme in modules. The main part was effectively buttons that triggered the called exe module. Nothing wonderful, but perhaps your script could become an ex, called by your bu...
