Re: Baby stuff

I agree with Richmond While this may, indeed, be "baby stuff", LiveCode should wake up and realise that all around the world children both in classrooms and at home both want to and are required to program "baby stuff" and are doing so using other methods than LiveCode We need more "baby stuff. The ...

Re: Random movement of some little objects?

Yes. The original post described it as a little game for kids. The poster was looking for an easier way to create random moving figures. He/she was even willing to just find or buy such scripts. I was just reiterating the easiest way without the having to create complex equations. I was reinforcing ...

Re: Random movement of some little objects?

Thank you all for your help and suggestions. One reason I tried using a list of points instead of letting LC do the work was that it is possible to change the direction of the movement this way. I worked through the list of points in reverse order and flipped the image of the moved objects each tim...

Re: Status of Message Course of Create It with Livecode

There is code for a chat server at https://sites.google.com/a/pgcps.org/livecode/home/servers . Alas, the links to other lessons are no longer valid. But the downloadable code is.

Re: customizing the answer dialogue box

Have you tried using html in some fashion? I don’t know if this will work with the way you are doing it but it is worth a try.

Re: messageBox font

I have full copies of the site; one with the original links preserved and another with the links modified to make them relative to wherever you put it. If I remember correctly, it was about 6 GB zipped. I also have unlimited space and bandwith donated by another LiveCoder. So we have a home for it. ...

If you want to download the entire site, use sitesucker. http://ricks-apps.com/osx/sitesucker/index.html. It is a great utility.

Hi Bogs, Sorry, I no longer have edit control of that website. I can not make any changes or updates. I do not have a site map, higher view or index of it. I agree, there are many cool samples of code and solutions to problems that my students worked out. I wish I could expound on them and make them...

You might try to use html to change the properties of the text. https://sites.google.com/a/pgcps.org/li ... euser/html

Re: Problem: polygon points moving/scaling 2x/4x ?

I do not know if this helps but keep your code in the”lock/unlock” part short and do not issue any other messages/events in it. As an example look at the code in part “C - Oops, It goes too slow” here: https://sites.google.com/a/pgcps.org/livecode/flappy-bird-3 The problem you are having seems like ...

Re: Vocabulary Learning Game

You could make your own with LiveCode - action games, matching games, timed games, and others. You could give them the LiveCode source and let them customize them with their own graphics, motions and even questions/answers.

In fact any other language that you may write in is ultimately compiled Into machine language/assembly language. (Assembly language is basically machine language with human readable tags) L...

Re: Weather

That is great. You are making progress! There are at least 2 ways that you can pull off the temperature part of that item. 1. Treat it as another list but instead of the items being separated with commas (,), it uses colons (:). So you change the item-delimiter from a comma to a colon and pull off t...
