Re: How to load a text file on same domain?

Double check GET in recent versions. I think that was added not long ago.

Re: Tablet user view style - Any way to get Better looking ? P/L

Hmm, I am having a déjà vu moment here, cause I could swear that sounds like something someone else said recently....I wonder who that might have been...(listening to the topic echo, echo, echo....) :mrgreen: Bogs, that was 12 days ago. You expect us to have memories useful enough to recall things ...

I m on my way...! :wink: will it be possible to round corners of any inputs fields next ?
Input fields are much better handled with the native mobile field. If it doesn't have the borders you like, make it borderless and create it inside a roundrect graphic.

Re: Tablet user view style - Any way to get Better looking ? P/L

Flat UIs are the thing: Turn off the threeD property and reduce border width to 1px. Consider changing button styles to roundRect where that works for you. Set a background color to something you like. Avoid distortion by scripting object placement as devs in other languages do, reserving fullScreen...

Re: Garage Band Files don't get listed

Mac and Windows both hide file name extensions by default.

And GaragaBand folders have an extension.

Maybe simpler to try "is a folder".

Funny you should mention Camino de Santiago. One of our regulars walked that last year.

Glad to meet you. Welcome aboard.

Re: Garage Band Files don't get listed

Item: Perhaps I'm out of line here and perhaps it's the role of a moderator and not mine to say that we all have different skill levels and areas of expertise and that's why there is a forum where people can ask questions and get assistance from others. In that light, I think you'll agree that the ...

Re: are there attempts to develop a revBrowser compatible with Linux ?

I am embarassed to confess, that my problems installing the chromium browser was a personal mix up of passwords. I see that as a good thing. It means you use multiple passwords. Too many people use one password for everything, so if any one thing gets hacked everything in their life becomes vulnera...

Re: Garage Band Files don't get listed

It should have taken you no more than 5 minutes to work that out. The first time I encountered a Garage Band file I'm pretty sure it took me more than five minutes to figure out it wasn't a file at all. It never would have occurred to me that one of the most powerful tech companies on Earth couldn'...

Re: carriage return

It's very simple: CR should always mean Carriage Return (ASCII 13) LF should always mean LineFeed (ASCII 10) return means either, as adjusted to suit the platform NumToChar() should always return the char. as specified by the ASCII number used I just want to point out that all four of these work as...

Re: Using Search Box Forum with a "linux server" exact phrasing-

Actually i was going to check for the use of : $tzone = strftime("%z"); which return a different content whereas you run it on a windows or on a Linux server... no big deal, just curious to check that result on both systems... :wink: strftime is a Linux command, not LiveCode. Does PowerShell suppor...

Re: Using Search Box Forum with a "linux server" exact phrasing-

This forum uses the default PHPBB settings for search. Not sure why the results are so weak.

That said, I do a lot of work with LiveCode on Linux, both desktop and server. Is there something I may be able to help with?

Re: carriage return

Numtochar does always return what is asked for. Put Chartonum(numtochar(10)) —> 10 Yes, this still works, although it (numtochar/chartonum) has been deprecated since version 7! Only in the most limited sense of "deprecated", and for reasons unrelated to line endings. The original use case for those...

Re: carriage return

As I think about this some more, it seems the specifics of this use case raise a larger issue: the value of doing server development on a system that most closely matches the production environment. Unless you plan to limit deployment to Apple hardware exclusively, most server apps will be deployed ...

Re: Datagrid loc field dynamically

The "of me" clause is the way to go. Adding the extra card reference makes it invalid. If "me" contains: group id 2001 of card id 1001 of stack "SomeStack" ...then prepending the object and card reference as shown above would give us this evaluation: field "E_B" of card id 1001 of stack "SomeStack" ...
