Re: how themes will work?

Ok, if I understand how "Native" look and feel is supposed to work, controls you make will look OSX-like on OSX, OS 9-like on OS 9, and Windows-like on Windows. I can test that by making an app on Mac, and sure enough things seem to work, the buttons look Windows-like under Windows 8. I can't test t...

how themes will work?

I'm about nine weeks behind in doing the update to my book, mainly because I've been very busy with work, but also because some of the things I need to write about are not available yet. One of those things is themes. How will themes work in 7.0, or whatever version number it will be? If you're not ...

Re: New iOS App rejections & warnings - executable size and

Something came up in the Flash forums, where they too have updated AIR so that it's compliant with PIE. People were still having problems with AIR extensions, even with the PIE compliant version of AIR they were getting the error message when submitting apps. Turns out that PIE requires a minimum iO...

Re: Setup of Android on PC

On this page:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/ ... 80260.html

did you choose Windows x86 or Windows x64? You will want to match the type of Windows you are running. So, if you're on 64 bit Windows use the x64 one, if you're on 32 bit Windows, use the x86 one.

Re: printing a card from a mobile app

No, MergDoc looks quite fancy, but I meant MergSocial. The info page doesn't show you that printing is one of the options in iOS 6, but it is mentioned elsewhere as being a feature of the sharing dialog. So, try MergSocial and when you see the list of options for sharing to FaceBook and Twitter, etc...

Re: Could not compile the application class -ERROR

The wording of your error isn't exactly the same as the one I've seen, but is close enough that it could be the same issue. In the .Android folder is a file named debug.keystore, that can sometimes be out of date, leading to such errors. Deleting or renaming that file fixed the issue for me.

Re: printing a card from a mobile app

Although I can't find the exact info page for this, if you read Monte's post (search for "print" in the mergext site) you'll see that his add-on for iOS 6 can now bring up the standard system sharing layer. That means you can print to AirPrint compatible printers. This does mean only iOS, and only i...

Re: how to get keyboard with Done or Send button?

Thanks, good to know there isn't a way to get one of those other keyboard types, that I was missing. For my purposes I can get away with putting a "focus on nothing" in the background image, hopefully people would intuitively touch outside of the fields in order to deselect them. I have a Go button ...

how to get keyboard with Done or Send button?

How do you close a keyboard that is sat on top of a multiline MobGUI native textfield, if it doesn't have a Done or Send button? Trapping for Return won't help, because the user may be typing several lines of text.
