LC Buddy collaborative coding

I've been working on a real time collaborative plugin for LiveCode. It's a bit crude at the moment, needs error checking added but it works. I thought this would be good for helping beginners, we could schedule live casual coding classes or help out other coders who have hit a problem and who are wi...

Re: visual effect not working (it used to in the 80 th HyperScript)

No problem understanding you.

you need to change this

Re: ANN: Seth V3.1 Released

Do we have a place to share themes? I was able to build one from scratch in no time. I can't attach .txt files to forum posts, so I can't include it here. Perhaps a repo somewhere... The Theme Exchange is about 60% completed. I am building this with LiveCode exported HTML5 and LiveCode server scrip...

Re: ANN: Seth V3.1 Released

This is much better A suggestion: If I click on an element in the seth list (e.g. "if"), and I hit the "edit" button, "if" isn't loaded into the dialog, "command" (I think) is. If I select an element and hit "edit", that should be the element that comes up in the dialog. When a theme is selected th...

Re: mobile gui

Hi lacara, A bit of history, hopefully to answer your question. Before widgets came along we had the standard controls (which we still have) so for example there was one button which can have different configurations, one field control with single, multi-line and table flavours etc for the other sta...

ANN: Seth V3 Released

After a long break between updates, I'm pleased to announce that Seth version 3.0 has been released. This is a completely new animal written from the ground up but trying to keep the user interface as similar as possible to the V2 series. As usual this is a free update to all current customers.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Clients\Mail

Re: Performance and background jobs

But I need to do this for each line... :-/. I am not sure if the SQLlite Connection is really faster (maybe, a little bit) because in this case (for each line) I have hundreds of inserts Another option might be to offload these inserts to a server script and let the server do the heavy lifting .

Re: Performance and background jobs

I its a long process then this could be done in a separate hidden stack launched from the main client facing stack. You could then use socket server and client to communicate between the stacks and pass the results back to the main stack. Examples of client and server stacks can be found here http:/...
