Re: showing the outerglow effect

1. yeah, I did that.
2. I did that, too.

Looking at the interface, it actually shows the radio as checked (active), but still doesn't show the outer glow... :?

Maybe I need to reinstall livecode, or something :|

showing the outerglow effect

I need to have the outerglow of a graphic turned on/off by the script, but this doesn't seem to be it.

Code: Select all

set the outerglow of graphic "myRec" to true 
Does anyone know how to reference the show/hide outerglow effect? Thanks

moving stacks together

So, I'm thinking about creating a stack with a separate stack for a menu bar and was wondering if it was possible to "glue" the two stacks together so they could be dragged on the screen as if they were a single object?

Re: Very Hard to learn for beginner

They are both very similar, with the exception that LiveCode has various platforms and needs to communicate which platform the command, etc., works on, security issues, versions, and so on. I could see an argument for moving summary and examples under syntax at the top of the page. I think, those ar...

script to place group into group

The place command can place a group onto different cards, is there a similar command for placing a group into another group, something like: place "Group 2" into "Group B"?

Re: Arrays vs Lists ?

Random access of specific elements within a data set, however, is where arrays can shine, sometimes offering an order-of-magnitude performance gain if the data set is large enough. Arrays are essentially a collection of pointers to specific memory locations, in which each key is run through a simpl...

Re: Where am I going wrong?

Hi Monki, As shown in my first post, the arbitrary string of 170 characters, if there are more than 170 in this app, will always display within the first 4 lines of each module of 5 (the 5th always being blank). Because Main feed field is wrapped text, (Post store is unwrapped) if I attempt to read...

Re: Arrays vs Lists ?

Keys were a difficult thing to get my head around at first. But it's really simple. The array is a dataPair name/data, and the key is the name. So, when you "get the keys" of an array, your basically doing is... put the name of dataPair & cr after tDataNames . ...only much more streamlined. :) At th...

Re: Where am I going wrong?

So "Posts store" is a field of lines, each of which you want to truncate into another field? Unless the lines are being hard wrapped somewhere I'm not seeing, you don't need the "* 5" part. While the lines are visually wrapped in the "Main Feed" field, I don't see that they are actually hard wrapped...

Re: Arrays vs Lists ?

I asked a very similar question a while back. Got about 3 pages of replies. You might want to take a look. http://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=28176 One of the key take aways was the fact that arrays can create "dynamic variables". So, you could do something like: function alphabetizeFld ...

Re: Writing / reading collection of Arrays.

LC's arrayEncode and arrayDecode functions are pretty efficient for what they do. Personally, for the sake of simplicity of nothing else, unless I absolutely needed those as separate arrays I'd be tempted to put them all as sub-arrays in one larger array, and then just setialize/deserialze for disk...
