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.

Nope, no mention. Went to github and searched the codebase. Found this snippet from a release note. RevFo...

Re: FMaker - a folder maker stack

Updated FMaker again: Decided to use the mv shell command to move the files into folders. The revCopyFile command was fine for small files but larger ones tended to take a while to copy. mv seems to take the same time regardless of file size, even over network drives. So the shell command being used...

Re: Dash docset creator for LiveCode

The Livecode Dash Docset has been updated to version 1.5 and has been compiled from the LC 9.0.0 rc1 documentation. The "Make Docset" stack on LivecodeShare has been updated to version 2.6 (modified version algorithm to catch fully the LC 9 series.) http://livecodeshare.runrev.com/stack/845/Make-Doc...
