Re: Video Tutorial

Some of the individual lessons have video attached, though not all. It still seems to be the place for a new comer to get a coherent series of lessons that will build their knowledge of what the tool can do and how to go about it.

Re: Getting files into a Option menu

Since the list of files is just a list of lines of text, you can loop through them and trim the ends off each line in tFiles - before you put that text into your button menu. You can look up working with chunk data if you don't know how to do that - http://lessons.runrev.com/s/lessons/m/4603/l/44092...

Re: Property Inspector "Visible"

You can also control the visibility from the "Application Browser" window, where the button is listed whether it is visible or not.

Re: Video Tutorial

http://runrev.com/developers/lessons-and-tutorials/tutorials/ links to a long list of task specific tutorials. The Lessons section has more material and some of the lessons link to video as well (see the Sheep Herder build video). If you work through all of those, you have a pretty good understandin...

Re: Set The Menu Items of an Option Menu (script)

I've read Richard Gaskin's discussion of benchmarking, so I COULD set up a function that ran both lines 10,000 or 100,000 times and compared the milliseconds, but I'm not THAT interested since my option lists (and anything with variables in memory) are virtually instantaneous in LC by my standards -...

Re: Set The Menu Items of an Option Menu (script)

OK Craig - you have another newbie thinking. What are the tradeoffs between the two? Why would you want to use one or the other given that they have the same result? Does it take longer to fetch the property explicitly or is the engine doing it for you anyway in the short form?

Thanks

Re: Help with placing iterated function results into a list

tList is not a function, so you will not find it in the dictionary. tList is just a variable that Craig is using to capture the factors. t prefix on a variable name is just common livecode naming shorthand to remind the programmer that it is a temporary variable that is local to the function and wil...

Re: waits and movements again

Why wouldn't you have two cards with things in place, then just move from one to the other with a nice transition? All this moving seems to be pretty convoluted...

But I'm not the designer, so you may have a good reason or two.

Re: 8-puzzle game

It would help if you would give us the error code information that LiveCode gives you when it breaks on this line. If sSpaceButton is a variable that contains a number for the random() function to use, that should be OK, and if tButtonToSwap is a variable that can receive the new number generated, t...

Re: Mac App Store Submissions

I don't know where you are getting that information from Mark. http://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/clarify/id455888980?mt=12 Clarify from Blue Mango Learning is definitely in the Mac App store and it was also featured by Runrev as being developed with LiveCode: http://www.runrev.com/company/runrev-blog/c...

Opinions on a purchase

I have a platform credit with Runrev that would give me a free platform. I have Mac/Windows and iOS already and have signed up as an Apple dev already. I work with Windows in my day job as an architect because Revit only runs on Windows, so Parallels has become my friend. But bottom line I am a Mac ...

Re: detecting movement finished

A variation would be to have each item put it's name after a variable as it completes the move or it's counter goes to zero. Then you have everything collected and ready to group or deal with as you need to.
