Re: PSEUDOCODE

OP's first and only post here, nothing to do with LC, no sign of the OP since - I'm going to delete this thread soon unless there's a reason we should keep it.

Re: trouble with save file per ftp

FTP can be a good choice if you are the only user of this app (and assuming you're actually using SFTP or FTPS so you're not exposing passwords to anyone sniffing traffic). If this app will be deployed for others to use you'll have better performance and much better security adding an HTTP API on th...

Re: [SOLVED] Testing mouseColor function

It occurs to me that the mouseControl function could be used to obtain the "recipe, so to speak, for a pixel, at least within a LiveCode window. Rather than return an RGB value, it could return an array with the relevant properties needed to discern how the object is rendered. Or if the RGB is all t...

Re: Alternative to PUT value INTO variable

I was doodling around today and had to reset a number of variables manually to "". I was thinking how nice it would be in this one use-case to be able to do that just by writing something like ~ put "" into (tmp1) and (tmp2) and (tmp3) and... or even set the value of tmp1 and tmp2 and tmp3 to "" <s...

The computed transformation of four bytes to fully opaque three bytes is NOT reversible except you have full information about the pixels underneath the computed one.

Re: Audio and Video export possibilities

I'm not saying it would be trivial, just noting that I can't think of any language has that that built-in. If there's sufficient interest it will be possible to find resources to do this. If resources cannot be found that may be an indicator of level of interest in the community. FWIW even the OP he...

Re: [SOLVED] Testing mouseColor function

And how do you get the 4 byte pixel color (incl. the alpha value) from the 3 byte mouseColor? I don't, since for anything outside of LC the alpha value would be a guess, and even within LC may not tell the whole story depending on other properties and antialiasing. If I set the backColor of a graph...

Re: [SOLVED] Testing mouseColor function

I see a pixel on screen; it has a value; give me that value. That is the color of a fully opaque snapshot of size 1x1. You can have it by two lines of code. I'll take it. Hopefully the team will fix whatever is needed in the mouseColor function. I would like to have the color of the video buffer be...

Re: Testing mouseColor function

So, what should the mouseColor report? IMO the RGB value of the pixel from the composite display value. It's what I'm looking at. It seems less useful to try to account for all possible things in the various other buffers that were combined to ultimately produce the thing I'm looking at. I see a pi...

Re: Testing mouseColor function

This report seems related, and suggests a role of specific OS-provided color profiles as a contributing factor:
