Re: carriage return

Outputting line endings to stdout is a a common necessity, one which has worked reliably here in all versions of LC I've ever used up through v9dp11. If the script Klaus posts isn't working, we'll have to figure out why it doesn't work there but works here and for Klaus. Which OS version are you usi...

Re: LiveCode 651/704 on Raspi 3 running Raspbian Stretch

Come on! You don't need a practical reason, it's just what you have to have! That's what I told myself about the first two RPi's I got. :) And a BeeBox nettop. And a netbook. And too many other gadgets. As luck would have it, the one non-essential computer I wound up using every day is an old Lenov...

Re: LiveCode 651/704 on Raspi 3 running Raspbian Stretch

Supercool - thanks! With LCS using less than 12 MB RAM on a 512 MB device, we can comfortably run multiple instances. Takes a toll on the CPU (44%), but for certain tasks could be quite nice. In fact, since the test script doesn't actually do anything other than echo a string, nearly all the CPU tim...

Re: LiveCode 651/704 on Raspi 3 running Raspbian Stretch

Super, SparkOut. Here's something to try if you have a moment - run this with LiveCode Server:

<?lc put "Hello world" ?>

...using this in the command line:
/usr/bin/time -v ./livecode-community-server <scriptname>

Re: LiveCode 651/704 on Raspi 3 running Raspbian Stretch

I don't thinks so, because it has to be build for the ARM processor. This is what makes me wonder, but unfortunately my familiarity with how the update process works still is fogging my ability to guess what would happen. At this point, I think one of two things - ...if there is no update to the en...

Re: Why am I seeing this?

I see that here. I find I can scroll with my trackpad, and only during the scroll is the scrollbar evident. But bad UX, and UI as well since the transparency is a bit extreme.

If you submit a bug report on this please let us know the report ID here so we can follow along.

What happens if you attempt to set the color of an object to that value?

Re: Raspberry Pi GPIO

The above description still works. Michael Doub's Master Library includes convenient functions for it to make it even easier.

Re: What is the best approach?

Your examples fall into my category of "layout changes" so yeah, you'd have to script it. In my experience, the different screen ratios are insignificant enough in general that enlarging the controls doesn't make much difference, it's only a few pixels. The ratio affects cropping/empty space, but f...

Re: What is the best approach?

Richard and I disagree slightly on this in some respects. Maybe not much. We both recognize that fullSceenMode is great for some things but not everything. The biggest difference seems to be just our own respective personal preferences, and even that's likely because we make different types of apps...

Re: What is the best approach?

LiveCode's fullScreenMode is similar to using the scaling options in CSS to shrink or stretch the layout as a whole. It's certainly easy to use and can be very useful for certain types of apps . But as we see in the web world and in other development tools, there is no single solution for all the ty...

so (correcting my earlier self 8) ) it's actually LC9dp7 onwards where browser widgets dont' work in linux.
Which distro/version?

Here the browser widget works great in v9dp11 on Ubuntu 14.04.

There can be a place for older software. But that place isn't with features requested for new versions. :)

Re: Stuck between modes

All of the objects are within a group which has its selectGroupedControls property turned off. While off, its controls cannot be selected. Turning that back on allows them to be selected again.

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

...also, Richard, are you saying the IDE's dictionary stack opens for you in a browser widget? on linux? for me it just opens Firefox to the online dictionary (even though Chrome is my default browser). Thanks to some good analysis from Panos, we've narrowed that down to LC's SQLite interface. The ...
