Re: Creating full-sized Windows 8 tile for standalone app

Howdy!
You can build standard desktop apps for Windows 8 using LiveCode, but not the tile based "store apps" (formerly known as Metro apps) as of yet. Sorry. I think RunRev has it scheduled to be available for the future, but it may be awhile before we see it.

Re: Tab on return problem

I'm not sure that I can help, since I am using version 4.53, which is well before the updated field controls. What type of field is it? (plain, basic table, etc?) You should be able to attach the stack file by using a compressed zip file. Maybe someone will come along, able to assist. Regards, -Doc-...

Re: Help Us Take LiveCode Open Source

With LC now going open source for sure, maybe someone at RunRev would consider a very different approach to these support forums. Instead of potentially adding new sections to this already tangled mess, why not cull it back to just 4 or 5 instead? Why not move the existing messages into a read only ...

Re: Help Us Take LiveCode Open Source

Well, I guess my sarcastic remark ruffled some feathers... I did not harshly or otherwise reply to anything having to do with the OP's misunderstandings, misgivings or possible lack of knowledge regarding the issue of LiveCode going open source. I let that dog lay, remaining silent for wiser minds t...

Re: Help Us Take LiveCode Open Source

The problem is, nobody needs Livecode to do what can already be done with say... Objective-C, C# and Java.
Excuse me, but what have you been smoking?
Really.

Re: How to Colour a Tab button

Traxgeek, If you really want to see the ultimate when it comes to building custom controls and/or skinning goes with LIveCode applications, you'll need to pay a visit to the Tactile Media web site.

Re: How to Colour a Tab button

Welcome!
I think that you will find as you gain experience, when it comes to custom interface design, LiveCode is really hard to beat
...don't have a certain feature or look? Just roll your own. :)

Re: How to Colour a Tab button

Traxgeek , If you really need colored tabs and don't mind some extra work, you can simulate them easy enough using transparent buttons with hidden button images of your own design and with the benefit that you can place the "tabs" anywhere you want them (top, botton, or either side). I've included a...

Hope that helps,
