Re: Making Windows Standalone Livecode 9 vs 7

I would suggest trying v9.0.2, as that's the latest Stable build, and I know the team has been working on some Windows issues. If you see the same result, you might try the latest Developer Preview release, currently v9.0.3rc2. These and more are available here: https://downloads.livecode.com/liveco...

Interesting. I've never used MX before, and while it's not an officially supported distro would be good to see if we can pin down the issue so it could become community-supported.

Re: [Solved] Option for wrapping Code Editor text and how to remove spaces in field ??

Obviously no one will do that for an entire script. But the difference between an entire script and a few lines is only a matter of degrees. If I'm doing code review, or dealing with a bug report, I want to be able to refer to a line number and know what line that is in the script as displayed As f...

Re: [Solved] Option for wrapping Code Editor text and how to remove spaces in field ??

AFAIK the engine doesn't care how long a script line is (within certain reasonable limits, at least 64k, perhaps longer). You could put all the statements on a single line separated with ";" if you wanted to. But if any employee or contractor submitted code like that to my office I wouldn't use them...

Re: Write and run code in standalone

My first idea was a depressing one, and that is that your idea sounds an awful lot like creating a development environment, something precluded by the licensing terms (at least as I understand it). The proprietary editions of LC (Indy and Business) do, last I recall, have a prohibition on using LC ...

Re: which is faster? [repeat loop]

The engine sets its own randomSeed on startup, which IIRC is also based on current clock time. A scripter will only benefit from setting the randomSeed if they want to create a reproducible series of psuedo-random sequences. For psuedo-random sequences that vary across sessions, just leave it alone ...

Re: which is faster? [repeat loop]

Yes, using the same randomSeed will produce the same psuedo-random sequence. I've used this once when writing an encryption function back before LC offered industry-standard encryption, allowing me to XOR bytes seemingly randomly but reproducibly, so that same sequence could be used to decrypt. FWIW...

Re: [Solved] Option for wrapping Code Editor text and how to remove spaces in field ??

UTR? "Unable To Reproduce" Soft breakpoints stick now???? That alone is reason enough to migrate to v9. Are you referring to the red dot in the line numbers list? That's always worked for me. If there's a bug report we should jump on it. The IDE is scripted, I'll bet one of us could fix that in a j...

Richard.
I'm guessing it would throw off the line number list.
Would there be any downside ramifications? The only thing I know of that depends on the line number is the soft breakpoint, and that DOES NOT work anyway.
UTR. Bug #?

Re: [Solved] Option for wrapping Code Editor text and how to remove spaces in field ??

I'm curious as to whether anyone knows the downsides of setting the script editors field to wrap (set dontWrap to false). I'm guessing it would throw off the line number list. For the scripter, I can envision usability problems, never able to know by looking at the text whether what you're seeing i...

I'll see what I can do.
What's the worst that can happen? If you succeed easily, you'll have an app. If you get stuck along the way, you'll have to come back here to spend more time with us. Looks like a win either way. :)

Re: SCORM

Richmond, who is "Andy" and what is that correspondence about?

As for value, if you're a large company facing even average turnover, where the cost of replacing a middle manager averages about $35k, investing in effective knowledge transfer solutions can pay for themselves in the first year.
