Re: Meeting: Jan 4, Pasadena

I'm wondering whether there will be a meeting on the evening of 8 March this year to coincide when I'll be in Pasadena for SCaLE... That would be cool, but then I couldn't go. We normally hold the LiveCode meetings on the first Thursday of each month, with only three exceptions so far: Kevin visite...

I'd guess that acceleratedRendering isn't needed far more times than it is. There are only three conditions where it improves performance.
What are those three?

And if we can I identify them, could the engine?

Re: Mobile Scroll vs Web Browser control

Why isn't acceleratedRendering on by default?

How many developers get up in the morning and say, "Today I want to build an app with slow rendering!"? ;)

Re: For which operating system do you need RunRev?

The code you'd be working with is GPL. Really? The particular problem is that I programming languages I currently know are LiveCode and BBC BASIC: neither of which . . . You would not be obliged to keep the funds yourself. Most crowdfunded projects requiring engineering use the funds to hire engine...

Re: Little How To? use PHP and PDO communication with MYSQL

..Whats the scientific name - :mrgreen: -for this type of DB access ? Exposed. ;) Protecting a DB from the open Internet by using an intermediary scripting language offers many benefits for mitigating risk. There are ways to harden the DB, but with the unpredictable scope of potential vulnerabiliti...

Re: Extracting text from a PDF file or filling a montlhy PDF Courses Form

Are these documents meant to be printed?

I wonder if a more modern, maleable format like ePub may be a good fit.

Re: For which operating system do you need RunRev?

So, Yup! Why not be different (pace Apple's grammatically wrong slogan) and let LiveCode step outside the box, and just possibly, be seen as some sort of saviour of all that potential programming talent that is going to waste in the "Dark Continent" and other "murky" places. Sounds like a very good...

Re: In which cases "colorchanged" message is sent

Oh, but it's for so much more than paint operations. Anything in which the user can set colors for any object can benefit from this message. FWIW I've never heard of it before either. It's not in the v8.2 Dictionary, and I can't check v9 since the Dictionary there doesn't load on Linux - when was th...

Re: For which operating system do you need RunRev?

Pi is slated for inclusion among supported builds, but not as early as v9.

When it is, we'll face a question of whether a simpler, lighter IDE may be most useful on that platform, given how slow and RAM-constrained it is relative to other desktop platforms.
