Re: Overland Park, KS

Hi, Glad to hear from you! We'd be glad to have other Livecoders from the region join us for the occasional lunch/meeting. I know of a couple other Livecoders in Iowa, but that's about it for the region, as far as I know. It would be great if there are more Midwest Livecoders! Give us a shout out. T...

Re: Gradient no longer smooth in LC9.5

OK, I will submit a bug report with the sample stack.
Thanks again for your help.

Hi Richard.
Here's a stack that shows graphics that demonstrate the problem.
Thanks,

Gradient no longer smooth in LC9.5

Hi all.

A gradient that worked great for me since LC v7 is now rendering with visible lines instead in LC 9.5. (See attached pics for comparison.) Happens on Windows and Macs, in IDE and standalones.

Anyone else have this issue? Solutions?

Re: running in background

One other option for you... Make the alarm stack small and set it to open as a palette window that floats above all other applications.

Re: Best practice for FrontScripts and Backscripts?

Hi Craig. In the case of the drag/drop that uses the FrontScript, the scenario involves dragging between fields in two separate stacks. So I guess the dragMove script is being inserted in a FrontScript to enable that cross-stack tracking. The example that you tried out for me yesterday from my other...

Best practice for FrontScripts and Backscripts?

Hi, I'm new to using Front/Back scripts and have a few general questions... I found examples of drag and drop that insert the DragMove handler into a FrontScript. For every drag event, the DragMove is inserted in a FrontScript at dragStart and then removed at dragEnd. Why not just insert it once and...

Re: Drag and Drop a single line of text

Thanks Craig. That points the finger back at my Mac, where the problem is persistent. Mac settings all look normal. But wait! I open the same stack in trusty old LC 7.1.4 on my Mac, and the fourth-time-fails problem vanishes. That turns the finger back on LC 8.1.10. But you are running that OS, too,...

Can you verify Mac-only DragDrop bug?

Hi, Can you verify or explain this odd Mac drag/drop bug? I've spent days trying to debug a Mac-only bug in which drag/drop fails on the 4th drag operation. On drag/drop attempts 1 through 3, I am able to drag/drop lines of text from one field to a field in another stack with no trouble. But on the ...

Re: Palette substack blocks answer dialogs

Thanks for the offer of help, Richard. I am rather far along on a workaround now, so let me see that through. If I remain stuck after that, I will contact you.

Thanks all.

Re: Palette substack blocks answer dialogs

I'm not coding in the past entirely. I have an Indy license and do build in 8.x on the Mac side, so I can deliver 64-bit standalones. But I put a high value on stability and I've found LC 7.1.4 on Windows will run my codebase with very few issues. One of these days, however, something is sure to com...

Palette substack blocks answer dialogs

Hi Livecoders, I have a palette substack that often overlays and blocks the dialog windows created by calling the built-in answer command. When this happens, the answer dialog window cannot be brought forward and the palette window cannot be dragged out of the way. The only way out in many cases is ...
