Re: "split as set" documentation mystifying

I think that “as set” is still part of the first form (where a delimiter is provided). I agree that the example should be moved. I’ll probably submit a PR on it this weekend unless someone else does it first.

Re: "split as set" documentation mystifying

The second form comment is correct. The first form allows specifying the delimiter(s) and the second uses the rowDelimiter and the columnDelimiter.

Re: No matter the Launch image, I get 320x480

Did you manually modify the plist at any point? If so, that could be retaining old splash screen info.

Re: Copying scripts to text file

So at the moment I'm drafting the UI for this, a way to drop two different versions of a stack file into the window and review a list of property and script diffs, applying them selectively as one sees fit. This sounds very interesting. The goal of my tool is just to allow tracking of differences i...

Re: JSON encoding / decoding for LiveCode only with livecode-script

I’ve opened a few minor issues there. I can submit one or multiple PRs if needed (edits needed are very simple). Thanks for posting this code.

Re: gyp debugging help?

It is part of the build system to actually compile the project (LC engine).

Re: if else vs switch

There is some code in use for LCFM that will eventually make it over to the main LC product that will improve switch performance in some cases even more. Probably wouldn’t make a difference unless you had a large number of options to check in the switch though. With that in mind, it probably would b...

Re: Suddenly resizing for a different size device

iOS will automatically scale an app to fit the screen if designed for an older device. This comes from the days of the transition from 3GS to the 4 and the 4 to the 5. The size that the app is designed for used to be taken from the splash images. If you didn’t provide a splash for a certain size, th...

Re: RevProfile of segment widget

I will need to look at the code, but I will say that it does seem like an update will be needed for profiles to properly support widgets.

Re: Suddenly resizing for a different size device

Do you have all of the launch/splash screen images populated? In 9.0 that was necessary. Your LC app would not see the actual rect of the device unless a corresponding image was provided. The latest versions use a different method for the splash.

Re: Same card for two size of controls: phone or tablet

I’d vote for using the resizeStack handler to do what you want and dynamically size/position the controls. This allows you to have the controls react to the different variations of device sizes. Just like CSS, you would use a metric to switch between the two methods. If you want everything to be sta...

Re: Spelling mistakes

I would use a desktop Git client and do this as a single PR. You could do a commit for each document fixed or even group it by word (if in multiple places). I did a word or two like this before.

Re: Livecode syntax highlighting in VSCode

One good thing about ScriptTracker is that it doesn’t need the editor to send anything to the IDE. It works by watching the file system to detect changes, so any editor will do. I currently use Atom to edit code outside the IDE since it also does linting. There is a new standard out there for lintin...

Re: Skin a control with SVG Widget in Datagrid

In the “My Livecode/Extensions” folder is where you find the installed files. The actual .lcb file is located in the extension folder. It is quite simple - all of the hard work is done by the compile code.
