Re: Startup error - no stackfile to run

@slowmaker: Apologies, your thread got hijacked somewhat... No worries, I found the digressions to be quite educational in their own right, and thanks for all the info! Hopefully I can carve some time out to return to the project today or tomorrow. Then I can see what Murphy has next up in the pipe...

Re: Startup error - no stackfile to run

Thanks, guys; the exact name that builds on mine is 'LiveCode-Community'. Running that moved the ball a bit further along; now it produces the following output, which ends with 'Segmentation fault (core dumped)', right after the MCU_library_load attempt on dbsqlite. [4868] MCU_library_load libglib-2...

Startup error - no stackfile to run

I'm running LXDE 16.04 (one of the many ubuntu derivatives), 64-bit. Attempting to build the community version from source. So, at the console, I do this: make config-linux then I do this: make -k then quite a lot of things happen for quite a long time, many orange warnings flash by, but the make ap...

mobilePickDate result format?

Am I misreading the docs? The selected date, time or date and time are returned in the result. The value is in seconds since the UNIX Epoch. If the picker is cancelled then cancel is returned in the result. Looks to me like this line: mobilePickDate "date" should return seconds since epoch in the re...

Re: native input rect rendering margin?

... in either case it shouldn't change the rect of the graphic. There may be a misunderstanding here on this point; I didn't meant to imply that the rect of the graphic is changed. It is not. The graphic is just there, assigned the same rect as the input control, so the rendered input control can b...

Re: native input rect rendering margin?

attached a stack giving an alternate way to see the issue: stack graphic rectangles side by side with stacked inputs. the assigned rectangles for the graphics are the same as the rectangles for the inputs, except for the horizontal translation. The *rendered* rectangles are visibly different; the gr...

native input rect rendering margin?

When creating an android native input control with mobileControlCreate, it doesn't seem to quite match a graphic rectangle created with the same rect. If you color the graphic you can see more clearly that the native input control is smaller, both width and height. I tinkered around with a few diffe...

Re: introspection: current handler name?

Excellent. Glad I can help with productivity reduction! What makes you think that my not working reduces productivity? Craig Hm. It's (the inverse of) an assumption, one of three possibles: 1) you working increases productivity 2) you working makes no difference whatsoever in productivity 3) you wo...

Re: introspection: current handler name?

My post is a good case in point, I was trying to encourage you to go right on trying, just don't sweat it if it doesn't come across as you intended, eventually it will (if you hang in there long enough), but I think that was lost in the translation :wink: Yep, got that; my response was itself a goo...

Re: introspection: current handler name?

I think I begin to see, dimly... The thing that might throw others -- you in this case but probably most others also -- is that there is no higher-level or overall-task-oriented goal here (and quite often in other questions from me). I was just curious whether that level of self-awareness, so to spe...

Re: introspection: current handler name?

Thank You! yes, that executionContext is exactly the kind of thing I was thinking of! Now for a side track: I think I know what you are asking, though I bet that rethinking your ideas may be in order. I'm curious what you mean here; I'm trying to get better at communicating on this board, as I seem ...

introspection: current handler name?

Is something like this possible? on foo answer the handlerName -- or whatever the keyword is, it it exists end foo on bar answer the handlerName end bar on baz foo bar end baz so calling baz would produce two consecutive message dialogs, one saying "foo" and the other saying "bar". Fooled around a l...

Re: menu checkmark on linux

summary for my notes: "!c" text preceding a menu item will cause that item to display a checkmark if the menu is pulldown or popup. "!c" will be treated as ordinary menu item text in option menus and comboBox menus. when tutorial(s) just say menu, probably referring to "menu bar", which is implement...

Re: menu checkmark on linux

I think in general "menu" refers to the menu bar (which uses pulldown menu buttons exclusively.) Other menu button types are used in the stack content and are usually referred to by the full descriptive name. I can see how this could be confusing to a new user and I agree more clarification in the ...

Re: menu checkmark on linux

Guys... Perhaps a bit of clarification is needed here: I'm not actually advocating for this to be supported , I just want to be sure it isn't accidental (i.e. a bug) before finishing off my notes, saving the sample code illustrating the things I've learned from this that were not clear in the lesson...
