I don't suppose you have magically dealt with pre 1970 years on Windows with that by any chance?

Re: The ANSWER command in Windows 10 doesn't work

It seems like this could be missing inclusions in the standalone settings. It works for me on Windows in every version of LC I have ever used. A bug this basic could not escape notice if it was Windows specific. If compiling on a Mac and the standalone built for Mac works, but compiling on a Mac for...

Re: Datagrid blessing or nightmare

As one lucky enough to be around for datagrid beta, and have been honoured to provide feedback even before Runrev/LiveCode licensed it, as well as somewhat biased of the opinion everything Trevor writes is gold (also Malte) I feel there is almost a choice, learn a (somewhat involved) api or roll you...

Re: Hexagons and stuff

I felt sure one of Hermann's fantastic stacks could be used. Perhaps this one can be adapted?

Re: How to sort out this

Nah. The answer is, as always was and probably ever will be, include within the repeat loop the line

Code: Select all

wait 0 with messages
This gives the engine a near zero duration pause, to take care of housekeeping processes and prevent the "not responding" appearance.

Re: Always rounding a number up

put field "fldTotalDeduction" into tFldVal put trunc(tFldVal + 0.99) into tVal put tVal && ":" && tVal - tFldVal is a similar way to adding 0.5 to the round() function. If you add 0.99 then assuming there is an integer value of (say) 500 then it won't round up to 501 but remain as 500, also assumin...

Re: No way to edit a script !

I am getting something like this sometimes too. It's like the tools palette is not respecting the browser versus pointer mode, so if it's a button it gets clicked, not selected, and right-click doesn't bring up context menu.
And still the PB is forever disappearing

Re: About LiveCode

I haven't been silent, I just haven't been able to get a reliable recipe to put on the bug list, which is the only place it will get serious attention. There are plenty of "general" bug listings like this there though. Survival has only been because using LiveCode is not my "day job". I know Windows...

Re: About LiveCode

Windows 10 LC 8 was completely unusable for me, and there have been large problems with LC 9 in the script editor. Sometimes I could be typing for 20 or 30 seconds with no visual change on screen. Then all the text appeared as if it had been pasted in. Copying and pasting script lines was a nightmar...

Re: Graphic won't resize properly

No resize handlers involved and no modifier keys either. It is disconcerting that it is not doing the same with a new blank stack. I have no idea what could be causing this behaviour in the stack under development. I will try and see if there is something that can be sent for analysis at the mothers...

Graphic won't resize properly

I have an issue (with some stacks) where if I add a graphic from the tools palette it won't let me resize it properly. The drag handles show against each edge or corner, but it won't let me expand in either X or Y dimension. If I drag from the corner it will force resize to be square only. Sometimes...

Re: A ton of stacks got attached to my one stack - how do I get rid of them all?

Do the names largely begin with "rev"? Have you got the show LiveCode stacks in IDE menu option ticked? Or whatever the wording is, but LC IDE is written in LC, so the IDE stacks are all accessible, but typically hidden from the lists and menus, so as to leave your view with only your project. They ...
