Re: locationChanged on mouseUp

What he wants is probably mobileCurrentLocation() to get the current location. If he wants to track changes, then he would respond to the message he originally asked about. Both require the app to start tracking location as mentioned earlier in the thread. I’m not sure if enabling tracking will gene...

Re: NumToChar in LCB?

A while back I did some speed comparisons for finding primes and LCS was much faster than LCB. The speed gains in LCB will currently come when it is leveraging compiled code (like the transforms that were mentioned).

Re: LC Buddy collaborative coding

I would suggest ScriptTracker for posting to GitHub. For a plugin, it would be an ideal way to keep the scripts inside the binary but also visible in GitHub for others to review and suggest changes. Whenever updates are pushed, the binary stack would be included with the script files. GitHub would a...

Re: Quoting between substacks

Someone wanting to prove that the engine can handle it. Not really useful in general. One use case to allowing it from disk would be allowing someone to open two “Untitled 1” stacks and rename them without having to jump through hoops.

Re: Quoting between substacks

Why not just accumulate the data in a variable instead? That will be much faster than using a file and faster than using a field too. Instead of all of the write statements you could just put xxx after tData.

Re: Force a redraw or refresh of the screen...[Solved]

I’ve submitted some patches to the GM in the 9.0 series, so any bug behavior should be checked in the latest version. I don’t think anything I touched would impact what you are seeing though. Most was related to properly being able to clear GM settings and ensuring that adding multiple new controls ...

Re: Need Update for Xcode 10.1

Profile is required to sign the app. Also, for iOS you must have a splash image for each device resolution that you intend to natively support.

Also, at times it helps to start the emulator before building the test app.

Re: Override mute switch?

What is missing from this thread is the “why”...
In a media app, pressing play should emit sound regardless of the mute switch. The mute switch should govern notifications and non-requested audio though (like the ringer).
Do not disturb is another setting on iOS and I’m not sure how LC handles that.

Re: Header bar widget question

That convention is very prevalent in widget docs. The word “widget” usually means that you need to properly reference a particular widget as you suggested.

Did you try using a semicolon? I think the mail client is parsing that string.

Re: Navigation bar: how to set hilite of item to false?

There is a PR to add this option:
https://github.com/livecode/livecode/pull/6404

You could always pull down the source for the widget and update it for your own use while waiting for it to get published.

The syntax will be:

Code: Select all

set the hilitedItem of widget to 0
