Re: Scaling Objects To Screen Size (Fit Any Screen)

Are you sure scaling is what you want? If making one layout that expands or shrinks for everything from 4" to 13" will do what you need, the fullscreenMode property makes that easy. But few apps do that. Most reposition controls to make optimal use of such a wide range of display sizes. In the web w...

Re: Password protected stack

I don't believe the password itself is retrievable, for security reasons.

Re: Upgrading to 9.0

Compare what you see in your LiveCode apps with other apps on the same platform, and see the Release Notes about the new font features. A little adjustment may be needed in some cases, but the result means much more conformant apps. And if you really want an older appearance, depending on how your o...

Re: Upgrading to 9.0

Can you post a screen shot so we can see what's going on?

It may be the font rendering bug that was fixed in v9, in which engine was not using appropriate OS calls for rendering text.

But to confirm, it would be helpful to see exactly what's happening.

Re: mouseDown cripples menuPick

menuPick is sent after the mouse is up in a menu. The mouse can only come up, of course, after it has been down. If a mouseDown handler bypasses normal event handling with "exit to top", subsequent messages dependent on that message do not happen.

Re: super itemDel redux

I don't understand. How is any thread more or less "lost" than any other? When new posts are added to a thread, the thread is bumped back into the Recent list, as fresh as anything else. When duplicate threads are created, that's when the original discussion becomes lost. And in the future, there's ...

I am re-opening this issue (See "Multiple itemDelimiters" in the forum).
That thread is not locked. Should I merge this duplicate with the original, so folks interested in this subject can find the discussion in one place?

Re: Report Framework

IIRC Crystal Reports is available for only one platform, and most folks use LC for multiplatform apps. So I don't think we'd see much attraction for Crystal Reports in this audience. Using it would be great for Windows, but then you'd still need to write everything it does from scratch anyway for ev...

Re: Scrolling Backgrounds

Definitely try 9. Earlier versions are no longer being maintained, so 9 represents the current state of the engine and the baseline for all versions going forward.

Re: Scrolling Backgrounds

Many years ago I made a ruler, and on the slower machines of the day the rendering time difference between an image and having that same image displayed as a button icon noticeably flavored the button. A lot's changed since then and I've not had occasion to test this in any version more recent than ...

Re: Decoding messageDigest data?

The hash algo itself produces a binary value. Most systems convert to hex for easier readability and/or for simpler transport when needed. The binaryDecode function will do that:

Code: Select all

function CleanHash pVal
   get binaryDecode("H*", messageDigest(pVal, "SHA-256"), tOut)
   return tOut
end CleanHash

Re: revCopyFile producing virus threat in WIN 10

If revCopyFile is triggering a system warning they'll want to update that. It would be very helpful if you could submit a bug report:

Re: revCopyFile producing virus threat in WIN 10

If you have a script which is the simplest example needed to provoke that warning I'll be happy to try it here and see what can be done about it.
