Re: Format Date dd/mm/yyyy in objet field

If your regional settings are set for DD/MM/YYYY format then you can set the useSystemDate to true This will need to be reset for each script that uses date functions and will unset itself at the end of the script.

Re: Dictionary does not load in ANY ver of LC

When the dictionary won't open (and sometimes when LC won't even open) look in task manager for errant livecode/cefbrowser processes and end those tasks, especially livecode installer tasks. Then restart LC.

Re: LiveCode 651/704 on Raspi 3 running Raspbian Stretch

@FourthWorld - I have a RPi ZW and it is running Raspbian Noob with LC 7.0.4 ok. I haven't had chance to do anything with it yet apart from install and run a couple of test stacks but no problems so far. Let me know if you have any questions you need answered that I can try out.

Re: is a color

If you collapse due to the winefunction, then maybe you need to recalculate your inputs.

if you can use regular expressions.
...and I believe there is still a regEx builder plugin in the IDE, if you need help building regular expressions, like I sometimes do.

You can get very granular with LC's text munging and chunk expressions. And regex can be used for many of these tests, making highly specific comparisons in one line.

Re: Where is com.livecode.library.widgetutils?

Filed bug 20970 http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=20970

Toolchain\Modules\lci folder contains com.livecode.library.widgetutils.lci in DP-10 but not DP-11 so missing ability to compile. Reverting to DP-10 it works, using DP-11 it doesn't.

Re: Field Scroll Problem

Maybe you could handle the textChanged message in the field script to set the vScroll whenever the content changes.
