Re: Future of LC?

The next question would logically seem to be: "Is the 2D physics engine still on the table?" It would seem most productive to address the question to the people who can answer it. I fully understand that the undertaking was far more expensive and difficult than first estimated. As you've pointed ou...

Re: Future of LC?

I'm not here to argue, or trash LC. In fact, I love LiveCode and recommend it fairly often, but I still think both of my criticisms in this thread are valid. The "only" problem is that any time one levels even a slight criticism against LiveCode, however well-intentioned it is, umbrage is taken. Yo...

Re: Future of LC?

The sketch initially proposed would not be optimal in use. Much has been written about it; I'd write it again but I need to get to dinner soon. The short form is that it's great in tools where there is an immutable line between design and runtime, but we choose xTalks because that line doesn't exis...

Re: Future of LC?

Bonus question: Has any complex UI from any company ever had a final deliverable that matched early-stage sketches? (Trick question, since of course if it did nothing was learned during the development process.) The basic IDE UI paradigm is pretty much the same in the newer versions as the old. The...

Re: Future of LC?

"Disingenuous" is not always as strong as lying: it can mean simply leaving out certain bits of information. "Disingenuous" implies willful distortion of the truth. Whether strong or weak, your choice to assert willful dishonesty is not only inappropriate, but so much so that I trust you would not ...

Re: Future of LC?

"disingenuous" is just another word for "lying". How do they respond to you when you address them directly like that? What benefit do you imagine could come from such rude presumption? I love Livecode, but let's be real. In the original kickstarter, they promised: We will introduce a new visual edi...

Re: Future of LC?

It also seems bit disingenuous that, for education purposes, the Open Source version is not given centre-stage. "disingenuous" is just another word for "lying". How do they respond to you when you address them directly like that? What benefit do you imagine could come from such rude presumption? As...

What would it do on a server?

I wonder if that's a docs error.

Re: Future of LC?

Another data point, FWIW: there are many hundreds of programming languages in use, each with its own unique attributes contributing to our world of options. The TIOBE Index is one measure of language popularity, updated monthly showing the Top 100 languages in use. I follow it from time to time, and...

Re: learn transcript

...im wondering if there are books or websites that will teach transcript? There are a great many supplemental resources out there. To find the best fit for where you are, it'll be helpful to know a bit about what you've read so far. How much of the 649-page User Guide included with the LiveCode in...

Re: KeysDown misses certain keys?

I'm assuming you mean "press and hold", yes?

I get all keys here on Ubuntu, but not as letters, as numeric key code values; e.g. "ADSF" shows as "97,115,100,102".

I missed it in the other thread.
Happens a lot with topic sprawl, which is why it's really great to keep related posts together.

Should I merge this thread with that one?

Re: Whatever happened to . . . . .

In other posts you've complained that the IDE changed too little. Hard for me to keep up. ;)

Help me understand: can you point me to the enhancement requests you've filled from working with early-stage releases so I can better understand the flow of the communications?
