Re: Table Field

i was able to do this with the property inspector(editing the tab stops and font size) but i was wondering how would you do this programmatically Property syntax in LC is fairly consistent across properties and objects, e.g.: set the rect of fld 1 to 20,20,600,600 set the tabStops of fld 1 to 200 ....

Re: Table Field

"8x8" what? Probably not pixels. Do you mean "cells"? The size and location of any object in LiveCode is determined by its rectangle property. Column widths are determined the field's tabWidth property. The height of a line of text in a field is determined by the field's textHeight property. Does th...

Re: Replace LiveCode Script with JavaScript, forever

According to the Python conference sessions I've watched, it seems there are more apps in the mobile app stores made with LiveCode than with Python. Today may have changed since I last watched them, but I don't see a lot of strong Python IDEs with mobile packagers. And given that Python had no built...

Re: Converting Unicode codes to readable text

Does the JSON file or the API documentation include a description of the encoding used?

Re: Replace LiveCode Script with JavaScript, forever

Oh, it's not just you, it's all of us. Most of the threads here have one good question at the start, a very long multi-page series of tangents and diversions, and once in a while the OP returns to tell us how the project actually turned out. And once in a while they just never come back at all. In t...

Why an android app have the same name?

There are millions of developers in the world, and millions more software packages. Name conflicts are inevitable.

Is the stack file being saved part of the standalone?

OSes do not allow executables to modify themselves.

You can easily separate that stack into a separate stack file, though.

Re: LiveCode tutorial text chunk

Without a URL to the tutorial in question I can only guess about what's wrong, but given the odd naming style in the example code I'm wondering if: go to card “cardNoteEdit” ...maybe should be: go to card “NoteEdit” Did you name the card? Is the name "cardNoteEdit", or "NoteEdit", or something else?

Re: Error from tsNetGetSync

Maybe I found my answer. The documentation in lessons doesn't specify which versions anything works on, so you just get to try it, fail with some obscure error, and not know why. I'm only guessing by a blog post from when tsNet was added, but it appears it's not available in community. Thus it won'...

Thanks, but that was one of the ones I'd found earlier. When I log in I have no "Posts" tab. Maybe permissions, maybe versions, I dunno. I'll ask Heather.

Re: attachment types

I tried looking for a way to allow .livecode and .livecodescript to the list of acceptable file types, but I don't see in the PHPBB Admin settings where that happens. Searching their help forums didn't turn up anything relevant. Anyone here have any tips with PHPBB on this?

LiveCodeShare upgrade in progress

From Heather at LiveCode Ltd: LiveCodeShare is about to be offline for an hour or so while it makes it final move to our new server, having been repaired and updated to run on the 64bit OS. Once this is completed, this should be the final time it has to move, and it should resolve an observed proble...

Re: Quarantine in the life of a LC programmer

This moment in history may present us with a significant opportunity to help: Many of us have daily work routines largely unaffected by the pandemic, and as software developers we can contribute collaboration tools that fill in niche gaps that help business transition to telecommuting.

Re: Livecode for AI?

Does Weka provide a command line interface? If so you could get started with that today using LC's shell function.
