Re: unknown C++ exception error

I moved the Simulator into Applications, and open it directly from there, rather than through Xcode (ie with Xcode closed). While LC Test then worked, I now rather doubt this had anything to do with the problem actually. I have had no problems since then, and have downloaded the latest Xcode, so I d...

Re: unknown C++ exception error

I isolated the Simulator app from Xcode, closed Xcode leaving the Simulator running—and LC now communicates with the Simulator, all now good.

unknown C++ exception error

I am attempting to build a simple iPad app -at this point just to show the splash page- and am getting "644,0,0 unknown C++ exception 573,228,11 revIPhoneSetSimulatorSDK" error. LC finds the Xcode simulator correctly and the simulator is running. The codesigning certificate is current. This is in LC...

Re: weird text display overwriting problem

Thanks mwieder

I do have Arial installed. But I get the same problems (with various text) when I use the Ubuntu fonts "Ubuntu" or "LiberationSans". I've decided to go with using "Default" which works in all the cases I need at least.

Re: weird text display overwriting problem

Thanks guys for your response (and Happy New Year) Richard, I am using Ubuntu 16.04. My user is on Ubuntu 18.10. Good suggestion about the theme, but no help: the program runs from the command line without any messages. I find that a workaround seems to be to set the text font of the label field to ...

Re: start using stack in standalone

Solved. I recompiled with LC7.1.3. Here the workaround I installed for LC8 now doesn't work in the development environment, let alone the standalone! But it does throw an error, saying the remote handler (which is in the script of myApp) cannot be found when I explicitly go to the stack myApp, while...

Re: start using stack in standalone

Hmm, the "weird" bit above about whether called from within the stack or outside. The defaultStack is different in those two cases! That may be the clue I need.

Re: start using stack in standalone

Thanks. I have been doing that (or equivalent, with my own logging routines). And yes, maybe aborting rather than exit to top, but that's essentially equivalent - except that abort should produce an error message I would have thought. An actual crash might be more informative. I guess I must have a ...

Re: start using stack in standalone

Yes. I have a custom alert in the library (myApp) which fires if called from myData except if called from the menu scripts. This is probably the main reason I don't want to use the workaround of going to myApp to call the alert, I want the alert to show on top of the myData window; for other calls t...

start using stack in standalone

I have a standalone (Mac OS X High Sierra, livecode 8.1.8 ) - let's call it "myApp" which opens a data stack "myData". In myData I call start using stack "myApp" and myApp certainly appears in the stacksinuse. All works fine in the development environment, but in the standalone *sometimes --- I thin...

Inserting an item beyond item number range bug

Inserting an item into a line in a field where the line has fewer items has an unexpected (and incorrect) result. The bug has been confirmed by Quality Control in LC 7.x and 8.0 [ http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=17590 ], while LC 6.7.x behaves correctly. Set up a field with contents a,b ...

Re: Print file

Good one! Definitely a code snippet to squirrel away in a macro.

The LC team has noted the feature request, evidently not such a hard thing to implement, at least on MacWinLin.

Thank you.

Re: Print file

I have formatForPrinting working, with some minor problems of measureText not giving quite accurate results and clear backgrounds being rendered in grey, both surmountable problems. Printing to PDF would be a much less cumbersome (and generic) solution however so I will be making a feature request f...
