Re: Designing Reports and printing them on Mac OS X

Hi. Reports are usually generated by building a card or cards with a layout of controls of your choice. DataGrids, table fields and graphics are all available, in all colors. I am working on a project now where the "report" is essentially a CAD-like drawing, printed to both pdf and paper. It looks ...

Re: Auto Complete or Intelli Sense in Field's names typing

..., but as I said before, it is a nice feature to have, just not a *must* have feature, and there are many ways to get it without paying a dime such as in various plugins, etc again, as I had mentioned previously. For the second part, the charged version ($79. ) is not charging for that feature al...

Re: Auto Complete or Intelli Sense in Field's names typing

For the first part of the above, I would guess you just haven't used that many languages/IDEs, there are plenty that do not have autocomplete, or even any editor other than a plain text based one, but as I said before, it is a nice feature to have, just not a *must* have feature, and there are many...

Re: Auto Complete or Intelli Sense in Field's names typing

Auto-complete will be in a future release, the LC team knows it's important. Patience. Finally Auto-complete is added to LC's IDE but this is a very basic feature that all the languages and IDEs I have used till date have it. Why charge for such a core and basic feature that LC developers forgot to...

Re: Combobox control with 2 columns

I am still a beginner in LC but if we can receive Combo Box dropdown even then what you can do is populate a table/grid with required data keeping it invisible and then when needed move the table/grid under the combo box and show it!

Just my 2cents!

Re: Make LC less verbos

Hi Yogi, there have been a LOT of discussion about DOT notation in the past, but this will not happen very soon, if at all, in Livecode! But you can do this, which is even shorter :D put fld "DisplayMessage" into fld "EnterMessage" :D And use abbreviations wherever possible: cd = card btn = button ...

Re: How to secure application to prevent distribution to oth

For protection of your application try out TMS (http://www.trackmysoftware.com/)

They also have free version which you can use indefinitely without spending a dim!

I have used this in my application built in Delphi and WinDev.

Check it out for yourself.
