Re: File Size For Project With Only One Button Is Too Big

The file size is that big because the Livecode engine is embedded in the stand alone. The minimum size is that 16 MB, but it will only grow very slowly as the code increases. If you had lots of graphics or videos inside the app, it will grow quickly again. But the actual code and vector based UI ele...

Re: ImageData question

If the aliens can compress secret technology into 40 bytes of information or ten pixels, then we had better start bowing to a superior race!

Re: ImageData question

For example, the numeric value of the red, green and blue channels respectively for the tenth pixel are given by the expressions: charToNum(char (4 * 9 + 2 of the imageData of image <image>) charToNum(char (4 * 9 + 3 of the imageData of image <image>) charToNum(char (4 * 9 + 4 of the imageData of i...

Re: Distorted view of fields in Android Device

To increase the size of the stack on your computer, you can use scaleFactor. It will scale things up on your screen but will not affect it on your device when you build a standalone. -- Preview the stack appearance on a high-density display set the scaleFactor of stack "myApp" to 1.5 Just type the c...

Re: mobileStoreEnablePurchaseUpdates with Mac OS

Tom Glod on the mail list pointed out this lesson: https://lessons.livecode.com/m/4069/l/186807-how-do-i-implement-in-app-purchases-in-livecode-apple-appstore I don't know if this still works on the Apple developer side, but it might be worth a try.

Re: Copying scripts to text file

Thanks KD, and hello to a fellow Canadian. This sounds a bit more involved than I was hoping for, but, also sounds like a good opportunity to get my feet wet with Git for the old version control. Currently on folder 111 for this program 😊 ScriptTracker is very simple and does NOT require you to use...

Re: Copying scripts to text file

Script Tracker by Brian Milby on the forum here takes all of the scripts from any stack and puts them in text files so that you can use Git or whatever to track them or edit them externally. An essential piece of software for me.

Thanks again Brian!

Re: Is LiveCode University Course same as livecode.byu.edu

Please will I be able to download the videos or I would have to stream them online. I just finished LiveCode University as part of my lockdown sanity maintenance program and there were no videos.

Re: Pushing a button from somewhere else

Should be as simple as: send "mouseDown" to button "button2" Try that... or you could create a command "soSomething" on the card or stack level and then have this script in each of the buttons: on mouseDown doSomething end mouseDown Copying the code is for beginners. You bloat your code, leave two p...

Re: Using Livecode on iPads

I hate to say it because I am making progress learning LiveCode in my dotage and I've never made significant progress with Swift, BUT ... Given your constraint of teaching off iPads in a classroom, Apple has put significant resources into their Swift Education package. There are textbooks, teacher's...

Re: setting hscroll of a field from a second card

Why wouldn't this be done in a PreOpenCard script, when the user has gone to the card but it hasn't actually appeared on the screen yet? Why do it before the user can see what is happening? It makes more sense and is more economical to do it just before the user is about to actually see it. Please h...

Custom properties won't work on the mobile main stack though will it? Changing the custom prop would modify the signed stack wouldn't it?

Re: Hardware section / Operating system section

Yes. It really ought to be called Rosetta2, but Apple just reused the name as well as the concept. My point is that it but time before the major move I absolutely required.
