Re: No new customProperties?

1024 works, but the dock can’t be on the side. The IDE is set for 992 minimum width. If you slide the browser behind it you can make it full width and see it a little better.

And I see on Linux that the resize bar isn’t showing. Curious that other images are also missing.

Re: No new customProperties?

On a new card, make two buttons. In button 1, create a custom property, like "XYZ" and set its contents to "ABC" set the customProperties of btn 2 to the customProperties of btn 1 Nothing changes in btn 2. No new custom properties. I can't reproduce this on LC9/Mac Sierra. I created a new stack wit...

Re: Bug in switch button widget?

I would suggest making a bug report to Bugzilla. This looks like something I could take a look at fixing next week if nobody beats me to it. Pleas post the report here so I can track it.

Re: disconnect and re-connect to MergBLE

checkFrom always fails because it is a blocking handler. doNoACK does not work like intended because it is using the incorrect call. mergBLEDid... is a message that you need to write a handler to receive. I would need to pull out my laptop to figure out the call you are looking for. (mergBLEConnectP...

Re: disconnect and re-connect to MergBLE

Did you try issuing mergBLEConnectPeripheral pUUID after you disconnected? I'm not sure if scanning has anything to do with your issue (since you already have the UUID). On the chance that it does: Did you stop scanning? If so, did you try restarting it? Did you try stopping and then restarting scan...

Re: background processing and mergBLE

Interestingly, if I "pause" my stack with an LC "answer" command, the incoming ACK mergBLE message gets processed by the BLE card as soon as the ANSWER window appears. I remember (I think... getting old!) reading that "ANSWER" is actually a separate stack (?sub-stack?)... I am guessing here but it ...

Re: background processing and mergBLE

In your second code block, you are missing with messages on the wait. One other way to structure that loop: local sWaitCounter on checkFrom if (field "fromAnycaster" of card "anycaster_card1" contains "ACK") then put "OK" into field "verifyField" of card "anycaster_card1" put 0 into sWaitCounter exi...

Re: Find Greek characters using regex

See this page for details:

http://www.pcre.org/original/doc/html/pcrepattern.html

You can use "\p{Greek}"

For the specific example, use "\x{03bb}"

Re: mobilePlaySoundOnChannel and .wav

My guess is that it is a sound format issue. WAV files need to be uncompressed for example (per the dictionary entry). I don't have android, so can't really speak to that specifically.

You may also want to try the "play" command for mobile.

Re: background processing and mergBLE

This post really should be a continuation of your original query to keep the information together. I’m not sure if a moderator can merge them though. Can we see some of your code? It is very hard to answer your question in general terms, especially since I don’t have any experience with BLE. But, if...

Check out this thread: https://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=30018 The work arounds I used in that demo stack are no longer needed but it should still work as is.

Even I feel like that about the GM. Someone somewhere must like it though, it keeps showing up in the PI :roll: I like it :lol: I actually would like to make it better. I do think it works fine for simple things. I use it for most of the SvgIconTool (except for the grid of icons). It does need a go...
