Re: Can't play simple sound on iPhone

O-o-o-o... what's that little button on the left side above the volume control buttons on this iPhone 6? Oh wait a minute... it's a MUTE button. My bad everybody... I'm an Android person and had just got a hand-me-down iPhone 6 from my daughter that I'm using to test and develop LC apps on. Thanks f...

Can't play simple sound on iPhone

LC 8.1.1 (stable) iMac OSX 10.12.1 XCode 8.1 (This combination allows me to build on the iPhone) This is the code used on LC's website as an example. Created a simple 1 button script to test but I can't get the sound to play on iOS. This stack works fine on Android phone/PC/Mac desktop but not iPhon...

Re: Get Number of Words Within Quotation Marks

Sorry for this long post but I felt I needed to clarify what I'm trying to do as a lot of the responses were going astray. This project is for MOBILE PHONES only. 1. Download simple/plain text file. 2. Get an EXACT count of the number of words in this text file. 3. Show the text of this file one wor...

Re: Any way to speedup font/size change in text field?

Thanks Jean-Marc for your suggestion however there was no improvement in the amount of time it took to change the font size.

Re: Any way to speedup font/size change in text field?

This is all I'm doing... on mousedown set the lockscreen to TRUE if the textsize of field "TheText" = 12 then set the textsize of field "TheText" to 14 else if the textsize of field "TheText" = 14 then set the textsize of field "TheText" to 16 else if the textsize of field "TheText" = 16 then set th...

Re: Any way to speedup font/size change in text field?

Yes it takes (for me anyway) over 5 seconds for my Android app on a Samsung Note 4 to change the textsize of a field containing 70,000 words. I assume you are talking about it taking 8 ticks for you on a desktop?

Re: Any way to speedup font/size change in text field?

Yes I did set the lockscreen to TRUE. I did not make any difference in how long it took for the font size of a field to be changed.

Any way to speedup font/size change in text field?

On Android mobile devices... OK I realize this is a lot of text in a text field (70,000 words, 400k plain text file size) but the process of changing the font or font size (set the textsize of field "Whatever" to 14) takes over 5 seconds. I guess this would not be so bad if I had a way to show a pro...

Re: Get Number of Words Within Quotation Marks

Well the problem with using the keyword "trueword" to determine the number of words between quotation marks is that it returns the first and last words between the quotes without the quotation mark itself. Example: "Here is some-text between quotes." The first Livecode trueword is: Here... not "Here...

Get Number of Words Within Quotation Marks

I appeal to the forum experience and intellect... Task: I need to download a .txt file from my website, put it in a variable, and then show the text "one WORD at a time". The text has hundreds and hundreds of quotes with quotation marks in it. Livecode treats all text between quotation marks as a si...

Getting real IP of mobile device not working but...

Scoured the forums and the internet for many many too many days looking for a bullet proof way for LC 8 to give me the real IP address of a mobile device running the app. The real IP address of my android phone is "10.xxx.x.xxx". Both of these handlers below return the correct IP addresses on deskto...

What mobile network is available and/or active?

Running an LC 8 app on an android/iPhone phone. Need to detect if WIFI is either on or off. I know I could try to download a file from a server but that would not tell me if it was over wireless or 3G/4G. Anybody know of a way to do this? Would be nice to be able to tell if wireless is not on, which...

Online dictionary - mobile sockets not listed

Using LC 8 DP16 Guess it's just an oversight in updating the online dictionary not indicating that mobile sockets are in place. But made me question that since I was having a problem with mobile sockets working. I can't get a simple socket client which is running on an Android smartphone to connect ...

Re: LC 8 - moving objects in Project Browser

I totally agree with Scoperzor in that the LC 8 Project Browser is in urgent need of revamping. Looking through the forums, it seems that the problem with the Project Browser has been talked about for about a year. Because I use png files for just about everything in my apps (imho, the buttons and f...
