Re: Audio and Video export possibilities

I have no idea if this is feasable or if and what licence problems might arise, but it would surely be a good thing, if LC would/could provide an internal (= build-in) framework for multimedia playback, like VLC or MPlayer or whatever. I'd rather love to see this than any EXPORT capabilities for vid...

Re: Converting in a background

Hi Max,

simply GROUP your single field and PLACE that new group onto every card you need.
Or am I missing something?

Re: UTC [Universal Time]

Hello hrcap, welcome to the forum! LC does not support UTC directly, but you can always get the time (or seconds since 1/1/1970), which if then fetched from the underlying machine. Maybe something like this is what you are looking for: ... put the seconds into tTimestampUTC ## or even: ## put the mi...

Re: The Build of LCFM timed out

Unable to answer without a BIT more info! What verison of LC etc.
Do you get an error dialog? If yes, what does it say.
LCFM <> LC, so what exactly are you trying to use.

And a little hello would not hurt for the first posting. 8)

I agree with Jacque about the interval but it is 120 milliseconds not 2 seconds -- whole lot of thrashing goin' on .....
If you omit the unit, LC presumes TICKS, so 120 in the script are in fact 2 seconds.
But even this interval does not leave much time for changes anyway. :D

Re: Refactoring

The defaultfolder may be changing between openstack and the time your save handler executes. Yes sure, but it is hard to understand why this should happen in this tiny nanosecond before calling the "backsave" routine 8) . So the first saving SHOULD go into the right place! Not? on openStack set the...

Re: Refactoring

And be prepared to find your stack named: SAVER 6/23 PM on your HD!
The : (colon) is not a valid character for filenames on Mac, it will get replaced by / (backslash)

However if you select htis file with:
answer file "yadda";put it
You will get: SAVER 6:23 PM again. :D
