Re: Detecting Chromebooks

Unfortunately not, the ones I have emulate androids so they throw out random screen rects, but it was worth a shot, thanks for the suggestion.

Locking Files

I am running into more and more of an issue with file sharing services corrupting files I write to using the database commands. This is happening on Windows and Mac, basically I open the DB file, write and then close it, I don't leave it open. But sometimes when the database is opened again the syst...

Re: Antialiasing Text / HiDPI

Sorry, I should have said this is much worse on Windows 10. It is not too bad on the Mac.

Antialiasing Text / HiDPI

Hi, I've never noticed before but on recent apps (since LC9) the text, especially on buttons, does not seem to be anti-aliased on hi dpi displays, it is not ideal on standard displays. Other text in regular fields looks ok, not great, but ok. Is there are setting I can change to improve the display ...

Detecting Chromebooks

Hi As standard the manifest file includes Chromebooks, but the exactfit scaling doesn't work, it had some quite odd effects. Can anyone suggest a way to detect a Chromebook install so I can have it comment out the scaling, the app works perfectly well just left the default / designed size (but scali...

Re: 'Built with Livecode'

Not really, I think it would be good to have a simple 'built with livecode' section with separate posts for each app so people can comment etc, great to show off what people can do with livecode, from simple app to something far more comprehensive.

'Built with Livecode'

I think it would be an idea to have a section on the forums for users to let others know about apps/software built with Livecode? I have just got back into the language after a 6-year absence and written a small (and free) Android app just to see if I could. It was approved by the app store on my fi...

Ask or Answer File on Mobile

Is there an equivalent to ask or answer file on mobile devices. I'm working on a PC with Android which is why I posted in Android but assume this applies to both iOS and Android. I would simple like my users to be able to click a button called 'Import' and then select a text or csv file the app coul...

Play Store - Device Catalog / Exclusions

Hi, I'm just getting my first app into the store. It is a simple app and only written for phones, not tablets. In the play store device catalogue section my upload is being listed as being compatible with everything and says I can change this by uploading a new apk with different settings in the man...

Deleting the contents of a group using code

I think this is a beginner level question that I'm really struggling with. All I want to do is empty a group in code so I can repopulate it. I have a 'complex (to me)' script that takes a template group and works through a loop to add instances of it into the master group. The problem is when I want...

Monetizing Apps in 2020

Hi, I have looked through the forums and most topics relating to monetizing apps go back to the early 2010's or refer to controls or methods with no obvious way or instructions of easily using them with Livecode. A lot has changed so I thought perhaps it would be good to have a new thread with any s...
