Re: video missing in exe file

On Windows, the direct show media player hooked into by LiveCode does not have all the codecs "wrapped up" by default. If you install the K-Lite codec pack from www.codecguide.com that will probably solve the issue. If not, we need more info about the specific environment and code you are using.

Re: Windows 10 put URL not returning results

You have removed all the inclusions? You will need to check the box for internet requirement in the standalone settings and also include the libURL or tsNet libraries. If you build the standalone with these inclusions then they will be saved in an external folder alongside your application exe. If y...

Re: FormatForPrinting

You can have a stack open, set the formatForPrinting and watch the font metrics change on screen. I don't know what other implications there are but afaik it is possible to set and unset while the stack is in memory without any errors. Maybe the reason for rendering for print out of memory (ie offsc...

Re: How to save a new stack from another stack with custom name?

Is this in the IDE?
Probably you are trying to write the file in the default folder which is (relative to the LC engine) in a write-protected loxation.
Try setting the default folder to a writeable location before the save.

Re: Mysql max integer value

Whatever language, 65535-14163=51372

The correct value of the 16bit integer is being retrieved, there is just a problem with interpreting it as a signed or unsigned value.

LCB variable assignment and evaluation confusion

I have been trying to get a chance to look into LCB again and thought I'd have a go at examining the clock widget to get used to manipulating the canvas and paths. I have just had a hard disk problem so a new Windows 10 setup of LC 9-rc1 is being used, no older editions clogging things up. Several t...

Re: Foreign Key in Sqlite

I don't know and can't test at the moment so not sure if thus is useful but the FOREIGN KEY constraint was added to SQLite in 2009 in version 3.6.19 so your version shouldn't need to be updated for the foreign keys to work. But as the link bogs gave shows, you will need to create the tables with For...

Re: PDF for Windows different than Mac

Not sure if that's (still) strictly accurate. On a Windows machine you can have a stack open, set the format for printing to true or false and see the font metrics change on the screen. When true the screen view looks like a pig which is most probably why trying to do this offscreen is still relevan...

Re: PDF for Windows different than Mac

Just a guess... does it make a difference if you set the 'format for printing" to true on the stack for Windows?

Re: Performance problems in LiveCode

SE and PB have a lot of spurious performance issues (Windows 10, LC vs 9 dp x). I wish I could get a reliable recipe to make a proper bug report.
