Re: Accessing grouped objects from card behavior script

Jean-Marc is spot on: editing backgrounds is a mode provided to assist certain layout tasks within the IDE. Nothing prevents you from using it in your scripts, but things are usually simpler without it. And since you're using a behavior, "me" will refer to the object the script is attached to, which...

Re: Limit stack aspect ratio

Operating systems make it easy to handle the contents of a window however you like, but make it harder to introduce non-standard behavior for the window itself. I've also found that users sometimes use windows for proposes beyond just viewing the content we put in them, such as maximizing them to co...

Re: Problem with HTTP access on Android

BTW: how would I write back to the Internet-File? Very carefully. After all, if it's easy for you to overwrite files on a server, it would be easy for criminals anywhere in the world to do the same. HTTPS is usually the best choice for most server tasks, unless you have a specific reason why anothe...

Re: Printing delivery note

Hi bangkok, It can be very simple with LiveCode, but printing labels with a Zebra printer in FileMaker, which are not compatible is not. With a printer technician we spent about 3 hours to configure it, the size of the label that you put on the printer has nothing to do with the FileMaker. I alread...

Re: retrieve livecode code from standalone desktop app

Code that can be executed through a processor must conform to the expectations of the processor. Familiarity with the processor's instruction allows converting code from binary form into human-readable Assembler. Some tools can even turn Assembler into C. It's not good C, in terms of how you'd want ...

All executable code in any language can be reverse-engineered via RAM dumps, disassemblers, and other tools.

Re: retrieve livecode code from standalone desktop app

It is imperative that our Livecode software be as unhackable as possible. "Possible" is a very large scope. "Practical" seems more achievable. How might one define either? The bigger game companies will spend literally millions hiring the best minds in the business to build their anti-piracy mechan...

That's weird. It's the least interesting part of the product from a technology standpoint. ::scratching head::
