Re: Swiping with native scroller?

Jim/Jacque, thanks for the suggestions. I’m sure it will be a great “leg up” when I get to that part of the project. Still working on some other components at the moment, but hope to get to this issue in a week or so. I’ll keep you posted.

I need this too right now.
Hi Jacque, I took a look but from the bug report it didn't look like it had been resolved yet. True?

Re: Swiping with native scroller?

Update.... Just to get some closure. I was never able to get a native scrolling field to reliably detect swipes the way I wanted. The layout of my screen does however, have enough "open space" so that users swiping from the edge of the screen (or in areas not covered by the native scroller) get the...

Re: Standalone does not look like desktop

The easiest way is to use fullscreenmode "show all". You may see black borders where the screen size ratios are different, which you can work around by setting the stack background color to avoid the default black. The other way is to script the positioning of every object. Try the fullscreenmode o...

Re: Standalone does not look like desktop

That's a bummer. Did it occur to you to set the fontSize in the datagrid? Thanks Richmond. I haven't tried anything yet. This is my first foray into datagrid on iOS and I wasn't sure what to expect. It does seem like it will take a lot of fiddling to get it right. Also worried about "resizing" for ...

Standalone does not look like desktop

I'm wondering if I have a problem, or just some learning to do. I built a very simple datagrid using LC 9.0.4, Mac OS 10.14.2, Xcode 10.1 and iOS 13.5.1 which does look like a supported config in the FAQ (I think). As indicated by the image below, the appearance on the desktop (left) and in the sim ...

I can think of no reason why this couldn't be used with LC. If the API insists on a binary interface for mobile apps rather than a REST one as with web apps, you can use LC Builder to interface with it.
Thanks -- nice to know these options should work.

Re: Monetizing Apps in 2020

I am waiting many years for this and I am thinking of getting out of LC and adopt Microsoft Xamarin. Which ad networks does Xamarin support natively? And what is the average monthly ad revenue reported from Xamarin users? Hi Richard, I saw this promotion on Youtube for Ad Mob and wondered if someth...

Re: Quarantine in the life of a LC programmer

Aylesford is IN Kent. I used to live in Maidstone, and Sittingbourne and Chatham at different times. Nowadays I have a full time job for a salmon-farming company and once Covid-19 restrictions are eased a bit further, I have the prospect of getting out to sites through some wonderful scenery. I was...

Re: Quarantine in the life of a LC programmer

I live in the Hielands now (since 6 months ago), but when I was working down there and trying to head back out of London to Kent, I quite often found it quicker to go on the A206 via Greenwich than via Blackheath. I love the highlands! Portree, Uig, Quiraing, have done a few bus tours. Edinburgh is...

The first time I visited the observatory was in 1973 (school trip).

Been back about 5 times.
My son works at the Greenwich museum. Was front of house for awhile so at the observatory occasionally. Back office bookings dept now. If you need tickets for anything let me know.

Pretty posh business area, right opposite the Isle of Dogs,
right next to Greenwich College and the Royal Observatory.
Thanks. Have you been over this way?

2. find the literal "[" followed by any number of characters but NOT "]" and lastly "]" the escaped \[ is mandatory because [ is a meta-character for regex. the carret inside [ ] means NOT.
