Re: Player does not show on ubuntu

My guess (meaning I haven't messed with video much on any system) would be that you'd roll your own buttons, then script those to the properties, which is a lot easier than it sounds. If your going to design your own buttons/controls, instead of making it a linux only thing I'd just go with em for a...

Re: carriage return

I don't know, but it certainly sounds like a weird one you found. I certainly would think numToChar(10) wouldn't be changed. Just weird.

Re: SQLite Images and Standalone Issues

I know, I know, 2 year old thread :mrgreen: I actually came across it looking for information about pictures in sqlite dbs. Klaus, you've been waiting a long time for this answer, though, and I love it when I can pitch in for you! Glad you could solve your problem, but what exactly was the problem i...

Re: are there attempts to develop a revBrowser compatible with Linux ?

.I see no access to older versions of chrome, any recommendations? Yes, I am sorry I gave poor directions on installing Chrome itself. You want to do this through synaptic, which will download and install the correct version for your system. In your menu you should see 'system tools', synaptic shou...

Re: carriage return

Makes sense, I haven't yet had time to play with the server versions (it is on my list :D ), but I guess cr, lf, and crlf don't work for that, Klaus? If not, I believe the break tag doesn't have a slash. Unless you are closing something, <p> </p> for instance.

Re: LiveCode 651/704 on Raspi 3 running Raspbian Stretch

Nice :D Btw, I know some like to develop on systems that mimic the deployment target (or just want a really light system). If you go to Raspberry Pi's website , you can download a version that will run in virtual machine, or on x86 (desktop) systems. I tested it out in Virtualbox as a live cd, it ru...

Re: are there attempts to develop a revBrowser compatible with Linux ?

I took a (pathetic) swing at it, since I still had the vm that mimicked what your currently running on. Keep in mind you need to have the chrome web browser installed on your system to use the 'cef' part of this. Here is a shot of the stack, with the browser window embedded showing google - http://s...

Re: Not declaring Local Variables and script works ! why declaring them then ?

when in the script editor, check menu " Edit ", if the last entry " Variable checking " is checked, then you MUST declare local variables or you will get a compilation error. If not checked, no declaring neccessary. You have to decide for yourself, if you really need this. :D I should also point ou...

Re: Not declaring Local Variables and script works ! why declaring them then ?

What about NOT declaring a local variable, I can see that LC still handles very well my script when I skip declaring some local variables... Can someone give sample where when NOT declaring a local variable you get wrong results or errors.. ? Well, IF I read your question right, I think I can give ...

Re: Push Notification using Firebase

Not necessarily, as there are many ways to do almost anything. I couldn't answer your question, though, since I don't have any familiarity with mobile of any kind, so in my case in this instance it is simply ignorance that prevents me from helping. Other people more familiar with mobile dev. may not...

Re: Format Date dd/mm/yyyy in objet field

On Windows, please note that a date before 01/01/1970 will not validate at all, regardless of the system date settings. couldn't you just grab the seconds since then, and convert it to date? *Edit - On reflecting about it a bit more, I think I'd use the date function, then put the items in whatever...
