Re: Learn Assembler in Ubuntu

I learned and programmed in assembly language when I first started. It really takes programming to its basics. 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...

Re: Weather

If you just want the temperature, you can use an api to get that data from the weather site. Then you can format and show it in text or use your own graphics. It gives you more control and allows you to customize your screen. You can also get other related data, like the wind speed, the sky conditio...

Re: Community Showcase

You have nothing to apologize for. I was not offended. I was trying to simplify the process and explain to the forum why I piggybacked on your email. Using sitesucker, I downloaded the entire site and if it ever goes down, I may try to replace it. It was done using Google Sites and has a lot of thei...

Sorry, I was just trying to be helpful. That page may no longer be reachable from the site and it highlights apps from other members of this forum. The site also has so many pages by now that it is almost too much. I just wanted to highlight some of the better links. (and save the original poster so...

Re: Scrolling Backgrounds

Great idea. You are correct. Having benchmarks would be really useful. Students often have older/slower computers and cellphones. So we worry about size and speed of games. We always used the 6x over the 7x and 8x versions of LiveCode for games because they were faster, less buggy and made smaller s...

Re: Session Suggestions for LiveCode Global

I did, briefly but I am not good on video. Besides, I am not a great fan of videos myself. Too much pausing, backing up and replaying. Videos either go too fast or too slow. I prefer working from screens. I find it easier to follow along.

Do you use videos a lot?

Re: Session Suggestions for LiveCode Global

I did not subscribe to the Global presentations this year because too many of the presentations were over my head orof no use to me. They seemed to be aimed more at advanced developers/professionals rather than beginners or hobby developers. What I would have liked was short simple ones to introduce...

Re: ASK Command Return Button means "OK"

Are you using a "software" scanner or a hardware scanner with your Android phone? I tested both solutions and they work on a computer. My scanner does not connect/input into my cellphone so I could not fully test it under Android. You might have to set the focus to the field and turn off the keyboar...

Re: ASK Command Return Button means "OK"

But the ask is in the button. I assume that the user presses a button to select if they are using a scanner or entering the number by hand. My point is that he does not need the buttons to choose. All he needs is a field with that code in it. It will handle a number entered manually or using a scann...

Re: ASK Command Return Button means "OK"

Instead of a button, just put this code into the script of the field "field_EAN": on returnInField (put your code to process the number here) end returnInField and on enterInField (put your code to process the number here) end enterInField it will handle the number when it receives the "return" or "...
