Re: Why do so few schools try LiveCode...?

How do non-English-speaking people learn C, Python, JavaScript, Ruby, BASIC, or other languages based around English? I had lost track of this conversation from January, but here is the answer: Non-English-speaking people learn C, Python, JavaScript, Ruby, BASIC, or other languages based around Eng...

Re: Button Error

I purchased the "You Can Make An App" magazine in 2014 from a local computer store in St. Louis. It was the 2nd Edition updated for 2014. Candidly it sat on my book shelf until a week ago and then I found several tutorials on LiveCode and I'm sold! Magazine Info: Quay House, The Ambury, Bath, BA1 1...

Re: Add pref for renaming behiors

I think that a new property like UUIDStackName could not break any scripts
and could become very useful for future developments.

By the way, I was checking HyperCard 2.1 and could not find the Stack ID property.
Only Cards, Backgrounds, Buttons, Fields, etc. have ID.

Re: Looking for LiveCode coders

Hi All, The blockchain is separate and on our linux servers. We are NOT a fork of any existing blockchain. Ours was written custom from the ground up. Looks like Blockchain Technology is a turning into a versatile tool for general use: https://thenextweb.com/hardfork/2018/07/30/blockchain-cryptocurr...

Re: frame-byframe with Video Formats

Hi Xeno,

Could you use FFMPEG for extracting single video frames and then
show this jpeg within LiveCode?

Re: Add pref for renaming behiors

This is a real problem. Ideally, renaming a stack or a control should not break scripts or behaviors. How could we avoid (or solve) this problem? Maybe we could request a new (and optional) constrain to LiveCode IDE. This new constrain is that developers could not change stack's names, only their la...

Re: [SOLVED] Adding a number to a file - should be simple,eh?

Hi Mike,

You could add the time to a name too. In this way, your users could not
overwrite any file by mistake:

Code: Select all

put "/PDAForm" & varLastBlock && the ticks & ".pdf" into tFirstPath

That is pretty slick, Al.
Thanks a lot, hopefully the OP find it useful too, although still
requires scripts for drawing lines as described in the first post.
