Re: PDF search

As Richard said, ePub is a renamed zip archive. The archive consists of xml, html, xhtml files with a few others depending on the nature of the book. There are no pages as such as the content needs to flow to fit the screen size of the reader. So searching an epub requires you to unzip the package a...

Re: How to edit Row Behavior of a Data Grid in LC 9.0.0

In LC9 it is labelled “edit script” and sits above the “edit template...” button. If you open the dictionary in LC and then click on the GUIDE tab, you will see a list of guides. The “Livecode Data Grid” can be found in the intermediate section. It has been rewritten for LC 8/9 and so has the new Pr...

Re: A compile problem

@panos
Just a question.
Why can’t something like ...
on closeStack
if the mode of stack "revStandaloneProgress" > 0 then
exit closeStack
end if
Be built into the standalone builder scripts?

Re: Cannot enter data in field

Hmm...
Then i go to tools and click on 'Pointer Tool Select and edit objects' and immediately after i click on 'Browser Tool Your stack is running and can be interacted with'.
Now i can enter data in the field.
You are right.
Missed this toggle.
OK then something seems amiss.

Re: Cannot enter data in field

Your description sounds as if you are in the IDE. This is how the IDE works. You can only interact with your stack’s objects in the way they are meant to be interacted with when you have chosen the “Browser” tool. (The arrow tool without the little plus sign.) When editing your stack, you are using ...

Re: cannot see custom properties after close/reopen

Hi Klaus,
He mentioned properties plural so i thought he may have them bundled as a set.
My reading of his post was that using ‘answer’ from the message box gave him nothing, which implied to me it did not work.

Re: cannot see custom properties after close/reopen

Isn’t a custom property set (i.e. properties, not a single property) an array?
Using “Answer” to display an array doesn’t show anything does it?
What if you ask to see the “keys” of your custom property (set)?

Re: Datagrid content disappeared? Help please.

@Simon a bit surprised as i hadn’t realized you were in a thread I had started. I haven’t revisited this issue since my last post. But to answer your question, no I was only reading in image data for each row displayed. The row template being very plain and the only image switching was to do with se...

Re: User Interface Question

Have you looked in the dictionary at the following terms:
tabGroupBehavior, focus
And of course the entries ‘related’ to these terms.

You might find your answer there.

Re: No new customProperties?

Well the beauty of the current documentation is that it includes all the stuff in earlier versions and clearly states if an item was introduced later (i.e. version 2, 4, 7, 8 or 9) As for the PDF version of the user guide. Again I am on a Mac and don't know what Linux users have at their disposal, b...

Re: No new customProperties?

Not wanting to rain on anyone’s parad but all this talk of the ealier versions of the docs being more complete seems to ignore the LiveCode Guide. This is available via the guide tab in the dictionary or as a complete pdf compilation if you select “user guide” via the help menu. In any case this dis...

Re: Compare two lists (comparing fontName before/after)

Make your own.
Make docset stack on livecodeshare.
Otherwise the current docset sits in the user contributions website.
Getting it to load is a bit od a wiggle though i think.
Mark worked out how, detailed here http://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=29745

Re: Compare two lists (comparing fontName before/after)

How does this compare to Lovelydocs https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... lovelydocs which can read the Dash Docset you can create (or download)for Livecode?
I ask as i don’t have a ‘droid device.
