Re: Raspberry PI and LC

But my question is still Do I have to run 7.04 on the PI and compile or can I somehow create a linux Binary using the windows version of that 7.04.

Re: Raspberry PI and LC

The Downloads page confirms 7.0.4 as the most recent build from LiveCode Ltd for Raspberry Pi: http://downloads.livecode.com/livecode/ With the source available, I've been hoping to see someone take an interest in compiling v9 for ARM, and working out the dependencies, so we can distribute that as a...

Re: Why do so few schools try LiveCode...?

While the usefulness (from the ease of employment pov) is pretty much a one punch wreckage for LC, I think LC could actually fill a major gap in programming and that's providing a starting point for non-english speaking children. From personal experience, the single biggest obstacle for my nephews ...

Re: Opening files on Android

If you add a call to the sysError function where you're currently getting the error message, you'll get the ID of the error as returned by the OS.

The docs do not say you have to specify the sort type.
True, and you don't. The docs say:
If you don't specify a sortType, the sortType is text.

Re: Ru Paul

This appears to work similarly to a regular scrolling field, except that the thumb is expanded to the full height of the object and as such only the arrows allow scrolling.

What is the "limitations of simple scrollable text fields" referred to there?

There was an earlier report that noted these issues go away when the PI is not open.

It is all true. I submitted a similar complaint.
BZ# so we can follow the discussion?

Re: Nudge painfully slow

If you can make a simple test stack that runs faster you can submit a bug report against the IDE. And if it doesn't run faster you can submit a report against the engine. Either way, you'll either get a fix or a good understanding of what changed. But hopefully a fix.

Re: [Q] Window pointer

I should have checked the LCB Guide before suggesting windowID. I know externals authors who've used it, but I don't know if it's available in LCB. If not, it would seem a valuable addition to the language.

Re: Nudge painfully slow

Is the Project Browser open which nudging? I find it a bit zealous with its updates.

If not, I wonder if "lock screen" and "lock messages" may be missing from the IDE handler managing that.
