Re: Spacing between lines on buttons

In windows there is not the glitch, in Linux you only see a single line.

Re: Image peculiarity...

Yes, the answer files actually does work, it loads the image into image "imgOriginal" just fine. I thought that once an picture was in an image control, you could then use the text of the image in the control.

Image peculiarity...

I have one that has me stumped. I was creating a small picture demo to explore different aspects of handling, well, pictures. Picture information demo..._006.png I first imported as a control the original image on the far right, then I wrote for the "Image Text" button - on mouseUp put the text of i...

Re: Spacing between lines on buttons

Well, it doesn't seem to work that way here (on Linux or on Windows), unless I am taking you too literally. Selection_003.png But, I think I did finally figure out a couple of things. my initial tests were done in much earlier versions which (apparently) don't have multiline button labels in the PI,...

I used to skateboard when I was a teenager in the 1980s, no half-pipe master or anything, but I could get around, ollie up curbs.
I think they got much better once we stopped using metal roller skate wheels and went to those rubbery ones, but by then I was too old to trust em much.

Re: What is the Data Report for livecode?

Have you read the instructions that come with calendar pane? I was curious, so I downloaded it myself. I didn't see any instructions either on the web page, or in the zip file as separate text, so for the uninitiated this might be confusing. Selection_004.png Selection_005.png What you actually hav...

Re: Spacing between lines on buttons

The label field in the inspector is multi-line. But it is a little odd. Sorry, I should have posted a picture. When I said you have to write multi line labels through code, like your "Hello" & cr & "World" line, at least here I wasn't able to do that in the label box in the PI... I was talking abou...

Re: Spacing between lines on buttons

The advantage that buttons have is that they automatically vertically centre their labels without these two conditions needing to be true. Agreed, but far as I know, you have to write multi line labels through code, like your "Hello" & cr & "World" line, at least here I wasn't able to do that in th...

Re: Spacing between lines on buttons

Oh wait, I think I misunderstood what you were asking for heh. I interpreted 'center vertically' to mean one word below the other in vertical alignment :oops: However, you can still center it, no matter how large the text field, by adjusting the margins, although that might take some experimentation...

Re: Sticky remMenuBar

The curiosity on my part is, wasn't the menu bar always (previously) a palette? Apparently not.

A stack has this mode if its style is "topLevel" or if it was opened with the topLevel co...

Re: Inconsistent sockets

Is this a recurring problem with liveCode sockets or is it just a script error? It doesn't strike me as a script error because it does work, just not every time . Up front I'm going to say I haven't messed with sockets (yet), so much of what I'm about to suggest won't be so I can help you, but so t...

I was using a button instead of a field because buttons gave me zero-script vertical centering of text.
You can actually center text vertically in a field without writing a line of code.

Re: Sticky remMenuBar

But as with any Mac app, what should be consistent is that only palette mode windows hide in the background. Sounds logical, but I'm curious about this statement : Is it a palette? I had thought they changed it to modeless due to complaints of stacks submarining beneath it . The curiosity on my par...
