Re: [Hacktoberfest] Improving Hi-DPI support on Windows as a Community

I would love to help, but don't have the required hardware, skillset, git, nor time.

But I do appreciate the effort and hope it comes to fruition of a good result.

Re: Video file formats

This is likely to be a codec issue. LiveCode players use VFW, which I gather for licence bundling reasons, does not include the codec by default. Other players (Windows Media Player or Groove etc) are set up with appropriate codecs, so it appears that the videos will play fine except on LiveCode. Th...

Re: How to install Livecode on the last Linux versions

Well maybe, but it has never launched on Windows after installation either.
It's not like it matters for that "one time only" so I don't suppose anybody's given it much attention.

Re: Standalone 7.04 on Rpi (Raspbian) not executing

I have 7.0.4 working to compile standalones on the latest NOOBS on Pi Zero W, nothing too complicated but hasn't fussed at me so far.
(I also have Xubuntu on Pi 3 that builds with LC 7.0.4)

Re: Interacting with Groups

I also made a little stack, but only to demonstrate that there is no problem here with setting the top of a group to a value to shift the whole group along with its content. It's not as exploratory as Bernd's. Check the lockLoc property of your objects, and double-check the addressing, and play with...

Re: Interacting with Groups

Instead of

Code: Select all

set the top of "Name"&variable to 52 
you would need a) to state the "control" as well as the name and b) wrap the concatenation in parentheses to force the engine to resolve the name correctly.
Use

Code: Select all

set the top of field ("Name"&variable) to 52
or other object type if not field, obviously.

Re: Valid locations saving pref files

That's odd, I use specialFolderPath(35) without problem for files common to the install (rather than the user). I don't think it should be a user-set security problem, possibly the user account you have signed in as only has guest access rights, but I'd have thought you would have noticed other rest...

Re: learn transcript

Start with the Scripting Conferences mentioned above, in conjunction with the user guide and dictionary. They (the Conferences) were definitely my best introduction, and although old, they have been slightly refreshed and in any event are still relevant, especially for a beginner.

Re: Valid locations saving pref files

I think Windows started restricting general write access to "Program Files" a long time ago on Windows XP or maybe even earlier. Ken Ray made a definitve list of file locations http://www.sonsothunder.com/devres/livecode/tips/file010.htm This is "old" but still valid and even on Windows 10 the CSIDL...

Re: LiveCode Lessons question

Tab order can be affected by a couple of things like whether the traversalOn property is set, but basically the order is set by the layer number from lowest to highest.

Re: Unexpected result when calling a handler in a group script

"of me" fails because it returns the short name. The engine looks on the card for a group with that name, and there isn't one, so it returns empty. Using "the long name of me" does work, as mentioned. Yes, but "the target" also returns the short name, but still works. And if there isn't an object, ...

Re: Unexpected result when calling a handler in a group script

Thanks jwack. I don't suppose you have any insight as to why the target and me both resolve to report the same, in essence the short name, but one works and the other doesn't?
