RSS or ATOM feeds of the forum.

I was inspired to look at RSS readers and thought that the forums had an RSS facility. Searching the forum brought up such a discussion indicating that it did, even with a screenshot showing RSS icons next to the forum sections. Alas, I see no such icons and am wondering if this feature has been tur...

Re: Big Sur?

This is where I get confused too. You keep indicating your DG is a TABLE>. That lesson you have referred to is to do with the "FORM" style of a DG. If you look at the first item in the PI window it is "Style" and the style chosen is "FORM" If you change the "Style" to "TABLE" the "Edit Script" butto...

Re: Big Sur?

Hi Steve, The other possibility is that you followed the example given in the lesson “ How Do I Override the Default Behavior for Rendering Data to a Cell?” which instructs you modify the default column behavior. In this lesson you are instructed to set the default column behavior to a button you ha...

Re: Big Sur?

Hi Steve,

In the inspector along the top header row there is a small icon for the group’s script (well the script that corresponds to whatever the inspector is looking at.) When you click on that what do you get? Is it the same “behaviour” script you just mentioned?

Re: Big Sur?

@SteveWoodward Hi Steve, intrigued by your issues. I notice the screenshot shows that you are using a "table" form of the DG. In the screenshot you are displaying the 2nd tab of the DG'd property inspector. This is for general DG properties. I think you need to go to the 4th tab,"columns". Click on ...

Dash Docset now updated for LC 9.6.2rc2

I have updated the DASH docset for Livecode on the Dash User Contribution repository to 1.8.
This contains the dictionary and all the guides for version 9.6.2rc2 of Livecode.
The DASH reader is FREE for iOS (App Store) and available to purchase for the Mac (Mac App Store).
Enjoy.

Re: Dash docset?

The DASH docset maker needs updating I think. It seems to have lost the script colorisation (again!) A bit of a mystery as it seems to break with each new release of LC. [Reminds me of the mysteries of SCSI.] Anyway I will get on to it soon and then update the docset on the DASH site. I agree that D...

Re: Spelling mistakes

Just do as Bernd suggested previously.
Once you have done a few it will just flow ;-)
Little edits on github are not onerous.
Of course adding the note file get old very quickly.

Re: Double title bars on Mac

Apple did change the system to enable apps to open in tabs rather than new windows (when you could open multiple windows in the app.) I initially thought this was a great idea and enabled this feature only to find the same issue as mentioned, not only in LC but a few other apps I used where I would ...

Re: Memory concerns

I made an epub reader for my own use. My first attempt coming from my hypercard days was constructed having a card for each page of text. There were shared controls on the cards and it seemed a simple way to go. When I did this and loaded my epub (1,500 page book) it was glacial. Simply going to the...

Re: Livecode Mailing List and Livecode Forums

I am a tad old fashioned and also in a unfavourable timezone so being able to promptly respond on either the forum or mailing list is usually out of the question. So, rather than get dribs and drabs I subscribe to the digest edition of both the list and the forum. If I need to do an online search of...
