Re: Using Objectstore (S3-like storage) in livecode

it claimes to have S3 support. But I can't find anything about it nor how to get ur use it Actually, it does *not* claim to have support for S3, it is giving you a hypothetical situation where support for S3 *could* happen. Here is the quote from the page (bold emphasis on keywords are mine) - What...

Re: Preventing duplicate input

I do think changing the keyDowns to keyUps should make a significant difference as one cannot keep "pressing up" on a key. However that was not the OP's Q: it related to keyDowns. The question about up and down came around in relation to the thread by the OP here , I've indeed debated using keyUp o...

Re: Preventing duplicate input

Sorry to cause so much anxiety. (In my day job as a psychologist, my role is to help reduce anxiety.) Well, I'm not anxious as much as curious, which thankfully I don't need to be cured for yet, but I doubt an apology is necessary :D Look forward to seeing an example that demonstrates this behavior...

Re: Mark menu item as checked

Actually, since your soliciting opinions, I wouldn't be thinking along the lines of a noun but an adjective, like
set the checked of menuItem x to (true/false)
seems pretty appropriate for this language.

Re: Mark menu item as checked

It would be interesting to know if it was ever implemented in MetaCard. The LiveCode engine is the MetaCard engine, updated and expanded. I don't believe any version of this engine supported that HyperCard syntax. I can certainly tell you it is not in the index or reference in Mc, least not that I ...

Had the way things were done in HyperCard card not been removed...
When was it ever present in LiveCode?

Re: Getting the SIM phone number

Hopefully you'll read the entire thread Thierry linked to, or at least, the 2nd post which says - At the risk of getting negative marks, I want to suggest that the highest ranking solution (currently the first response) violates the latest SDK Agreement as of Nov 5, 2009.

Re: Preventing duplicate input

I've indeed debated using keyUp or mouseUp vs. keyDown and mouseDown , but found not sufficient guidance in the online LC Dictionary to decide how best to handle this problem. I'm no authority, but, I suspect that just using mouseUp and keyUp would have solved your problem before it was created (pr...

Re: Livecode on chromebook

I'm not sure what your definition of really cheap is... Remember Scrooge in the 'Christmas Carol' before the ghosts visited him? Well, compared to me, he was spendthrift :P Motivation on the other hand costs me nothing, I just have a lot on the plate at the moment, and am about to have a lot more h...
