Nope! The world has gone metric and fractions are outlawed! Sorry.

Re: Adding Behaviour Scripts to Datagrid

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!

Jacque - you have always had the option on the Mac about how you want the system to work. If any program uses the system scrollers, it will honour this setting. LiveCode should too I think.

Re: Livecode syntax highlighting in VSCode

Thanks. OK, so the IDE does linting already by putting the red X up and no letting you compile - Right? So what made you start to work on LiveCode and how long have you been working with it? Is your intent with VSCode to replace the IDE? Since VSCode can't do anything with binary LiveCode files, I t...

Re: Livecode syntax highlighting in VSCode

Thanks Prometheus, but if you get the meaning of my post, I don't even know what listing is!

I'm an older non coder that picked up LiveCode in retirement to keep the brain active, and it is doing a good job!

Re: Livecode syntax highlighting in VSCode

I'm trying this out as well. It would be great to integrate it with LiveCode server the way Thierry has with Bbedit so that we could comfortably replace the IDE. I'm just a beginner, so I don't even really know what linting and code folding and refactoring mean, but it all sounds like something I mi...

Re: Delete the field content

Code: Select all

put empty into field "picture1"
if that is the correct name for the field it should work to empty the text contents of the field.

If you have set the imageSource property of the field (like it appears you were doing on another thread), you need to empty THAT to get rid of the picture...

Re: Accessing or simulating MacOS scrollbar behavior preference

Oh yes, you do have to ask the user what they want, then save it as a preference and then do the appropriate calcs when you get the messages from a click. If you are wanting to read the system wide preference, I don't know how to do that. (if there is a system wide one - Mac has one, but don't know ...

Re: Accessing or simulating MacOS scrollbar behavior preference

You might try using the pageIncrement property set the [b]pageIncrement[/b] of scrollbar to pageAmount Specifies how far a scrollbar moves when the user clicks somewhere in its gray region. It also relates to the scrollbarPageDec scrollbarPageInc messages. You should be able to control what you want...

Re: Android Event Listener v1.0.0 - find out when your app is put in the background!

Looks good to me on Git.

Amazing how simple the code is once you’ve got it sorted! But the process of getting it there...

Hopefully this will help others go further to smooth some of the sharp edges still out there.

Thanks again!

Re: Android Event Listener v1.0.0 - find out when your app is put in the background!

May I suggest that you put it up on GitHub and put a link up here? Most of the folks that are interested in source code and under the hood stuff are already over on Github and used to looking there... Also, if you make any changes or updates, Github can notify the interested people if they have sign...
