Re: Move substack to file not working

Unless you plan on updating your stack files independently from your standalone, the benefits of going through the extra steps to separate them are minimal. You can just leave 'em where they are and focus on feature development.

Re: Differentiate between Mobile and Tablet

I am talking of screen size. Thanks. And good news: you're in good company, since every developer for mobile devices, whether making native apps or web apps, faces the same challenge, and most use the same approach for meeting that challenge, "responsive design": http://forums.livecode.com/viewtopi...

I am trying to find out the device type of an Android device.
For what purpose? Screen size for layout? Connectivity options? Something else?

Once we understand your goal we can provide good guidance.

Re: Can't connect to MySQL server

Should I just "POST" the data as I would do with form processing? Or are there other ways to do a SQL insert using Livecode with PHP as an intermediary? People like to do all sorts of things; the most fashionable option is to use RESTful style, taking advantage of the big four methods: GET, POST, U...

Re: Can't connect to MySQL server

Are you using WordPress' API or are you attempting to connect to the DB directly from the open Internet? If the latter, it may be that your MariaDB install needs to be modified to allow remote connections. Those features are turned off by default for security reasons, but it's possible (though not r...

There still is need for a HyperCard like tool to quickly create custom tools. I never saw those capabilities of HyperCard being moved to somewhere else useful for the same audience...
What would you like to see moved?

Re: AppleScript insight

Multi-word property names was one of the reasons I found AppleScript so hard to use. It doesn't fit the pattern of any programming or natural language. It is perhaps the premier example of what can go wrong when attempting to prioritize natural language ideas in a language designed for communicating...

Re: mobileControlCreate: misspelled "input", no compiler error

What is the value of "the result" after calling that function with the misspelled param? "the result" is empty And in Preferences, is "Strict Variable Checking" on or off? It was off but, I turned it on and it still compiles without error. (You're talking about "Strict Compilation Mode", right?) Go...

I did the other thing you mentioned to look at the code that way but there is so much of it scrolling down just locks up over and over... When viewing in a LiveCode field? What is the file size of the stack file? At this point we've covered the obvious things, so maybe a good time to send the stack...

Re: Groups disappear from card

Quite helpful, thank you.

In the IDE's Objects menu, are any of the non-visible groups listed in the "Place Groups" submenu?

Probably the focus is being returned to the message box after executing, so you don't see the cell remain open. Exactly. As described in the thre...

Re: Setting focus to a Data Grid

For spreadsheet-like behavior, maybe the TableField would be a better fit than the DataGrid?

The DG was designed for database display, but the TableField seems more like a spreadsheet.
