Re: Nothing new here

Why isn't "create" a synonym of "new"? It gets weirder: I was curious how HC handles object creation, so I found this: https://cancel.fm/stuff/share/HyperCard_Script_Language_Guide_1.pdf Short answer: looks like it doesn't. Not at all, for anything except its virtual (non-persistent) menus and for ...

Re: Passing mouse clicks up the object heirarchy

A disabled image will allow the control under it to receive the mouse message. You're right. I went back to the test I'd done this morning, and it seems the first attempt at running "disable the selobj" from LC's Message Box didn't take (reason #44 why I wrote my own Message Box replacement, and re...

Re: Passing mouse clicks up the object heirarchy

We will soon tire of this. We always do. But generally there is value and fun along the way. But, Good linguistic analysis. Same result. Thank you. Nope. If you click on an object that is disabled, the message likely passes into the card... ...except with image objects, which is the subject of this...

Re: Passing mouse clicks up the object heirarchy

Richard If you have a message you want ignored in any object, the object's script can trap messages and take no action and not pass them Um, no. The trapping, taking no action and not passing a message is not the same as ignoring it. A disabled control ignores messages. A control with: on mouseUp e...

Re: Does anyone have a any good resources on learning HTML5?

Welcome, vishalbotr.

Your question seems oddly generic for a tool-specific forum. What are you building with LiveCode?

Re: Passing mouse clicks up the object heirarchy

I belong to no political party, hold the same respect for all churches, and even treat left-handed people as I would right-handed.

But on this most important matter I take my stand: messages fall downward.

Yes, this is the hill I'm prepared to die on. :)

hi, this code isnt working, any ideas? (Android)
"Isn't working" is hard to fix.

With any file I/O it's very useful to check the result immediately after the I/O statement, and if not empty then query sysError() to find out the specific error code the OS is passing to LC about why it failed.

Re: Passing mouse clicks up the object heirarchy

The real problem here is with this thread title: messages do not pass up the hierarchy, they pass down. ;)

Re: Hiding code in a button in a commercial version of LiveCode

Ah, then that's a problem for you then Richmond. Sorry, no bright ideas. I own an INDY licence, so I'm not sure if 'that' is the problem. Probably not. If you're deploying under proprietary license the solutions offered here for password-protecting a substack would suffice. The inability of Communi...

Re: Hiding code in a button in a commercial version of LiveCode

The community edition doesn't contain any code to decrypt encrypted scripts. I believe attempts to use them throw an error, though they may just fail silently (I've never tried it myself, so I'm not sure what the behavior is, only that encrypted scripts can't be used in Community).
