Re: Can you run LiveCode or Standalone from a USB?

The local Dropbox on each device is kept synced automatically, so I work with what I have until I get back in range and get back to other devices. So far, the longest ‘outage’ was a two week trip to Africa where my connectivity was spotty and slow, but I had what I needed on the devices I was carryi...

Re: Can you run LiveCode or Standalone from a USB?

Nope. I keep all my files and my preferences/plugins etc in a folder on my Dropbox, so my environment is always there on any of my machines. Only the app itself is on the hard drive.

Re: BBEdit

Nope . The old dropbox links for James Hale and Kay C Lan are no longer working. Could I get a copy of your plist file then?

Yes Thierry is taking his time.

Re: BBEdit

Jacque - could you please tell me where to go to get a LiveCode plugin for Bbedit? I would love to have script colouring working in it.

Thanks in advance,

Re: Adding XML Child with ID

Look up the XML library in the associations section in the left pane of the dictionary window. If you click on XML Library, it will filter all the XML properties and commands for you so that you can read about the command revXMLAddNode which I think is what you need. I'm just a beginner too and have...

Re: Difficult find and replace problem (for me)

Yes, regex comes with great power and great responsibility. It is a power saw on steroids that runs on 1000 volts that can do almost anything is the right hands. But the learning curve is vertical - at least for me. https://regex101.com is a website where you can paste in a bunch of your own search ...

Re: HyperCard importing

Agreed! Hope Mark and the team see this - or maybe you can send them this poison stack for testing.

Re: Forum etiquette

As someone who is reading a lot of old threads these days, I'm with Sparkout. Finding a final post with a summary of what the working solution was (and thanks to the contributors!) is pure gold and worth adding to the canon of Tricks and Tips that I'm noting for my own use.

Re: HyperCard importing

My rapidly failing memory is trying to remind me of a discussion I heard about this, although the details are pretty hazy... I think the ability to open Hypercard directly went away with v7 and above. The solution seemed to be to open it with v6 and clean up before saving it now as a new LiveCode st...

Re: Copying Mac .app to Applications folder

It could be a permissions thing - the Mac protects the Applications folder and requires sudo type access to copy or delete from that folder.

Re: Detecting Chromebooks

From left field again...

Is there any way that you can identify them based on the screen rect? Are they bigger or are they a specific aspect ratio that you could get at runtime, and then disable the scaling routine?

Just throwing it out there...

Re: Exporting text from LiveCode in iOS

Another idea worth throwing out there is the use of Dropbox. If you set up a Dropbox for the project with a unique email and login, you could then have your LiveCode app save a text file of results (with a unique name on each device so that you don't get duplicates) and then use the code to upload t...
