Re: ImageData question

Kelly and Richard. Ah, if you need four characters to, er, characterize a pixel, then I get it. The "missing" ten chars were never missing. The first ten pixels are never mentioned because they contain steganographically hidden secrets of space alien technology. Never process the first ten pixels o...

Re: button/icon vs. image?

Richard. having it displayed as a button's icon will be much more memory efficient I assume you are speaking of a referenced image, not one resident in a stack file. Neither. I was referring to the OP's question about button icons. Regardless where the source image is stored, it needs to be decompr...

Re: ImageData question

I believe the order of each pixel is Alpha channel, R, G, B.

Re: ImageData question

I believe the benefit there is merely readability, reminding the reader that each of the component values relate to a single thing. It's also note more likely to reflect real world usage, as pixel manipulation is most commonly done on the image as a whole in a stepped loop, rather than a single pixe...

Re: button/icon vs. image?

An image object is good for showing the image once. If you only need it once, that's all you need. But if you want an image to be rendered in many places, having it displayed as a button's icon will be much more memory efficient, and simpler for your development workflow if you need to change it lat...

Re: Auto resize

Though it's rare for an application to resize everything in its content region, if that's what you need I wonder if scaling the stack with the scaleFactor property may do what you need.

Re: How to setup Admin/User Account and it respective features in livecode

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but modern password management for systems exposed to the internet is a non-trivial task. For starters, the password must be stored in hashed form only, ideally double hashed with a good salt and a strong algo (SHA2 or SHA3). This means that password recovery sho...

Re: How to Keep Tool Bar on working plan ? even with Ctrl+T

I suppose the one saving grace here is that if the problem was introduced as recently as v9 it should hopefully be easier to remedy.

Re: How to Keep Tool Bar on working plan ? even with Ctrl+T

Good that you have it isolated. I guess my surprise is that palettes have been among the few things that haven't regressed in LC on Linux. Given how well they work in Gnome I'm surprised a change in LC would affect only one DM but not others.

Re: What is a sample code for execution measure in ms ?

As I discussed in the article, for durations that short you'll want to get the average of many iterations.

What does Plasma do that breaks simple palette behaviors?

Is that window mode supported in other apps under Plasma?
