Re: Image no longer scrolls

Re: Image no longer scrolls

This is the expected behavior if the lockLoc of the image is true. Is it locked? The group is locked, but that is necessary otherwise when you set the filename the image takes over the whole stack rather than just activate the scrollbars. Here is what I have just done to test the problem. I have an...

Image no longer scrolls

I have a stack that I built several years ago in RunRev 3.0. I have been updating the app on LiveCode 7.1. I have just noticed a problem that began with the transition. I have an image. the image is grouped so that when it's filename is set to a larger image than the group it will scroll with the gr...

Re: Using BackSpaceKey and selectedChunk to Analyze a Word

This is kind of an ugly way to do it, but it works provided the cursor is exactly to the right of the word you want deleted (no space between them). I'm sure someone can come up with a better way. Maybe a regex solution? put word 2 of the selectedChunk into x put x-1 into x repeat until character x ...

I suspect that the comments section is not written in HTML. It is more than likely a java or flash app.

Re: Stand Alone Takes long to startup

Another possibility..Check your anti-Virus software. Some real time protection apps will run a scan on any unknown software before it will allow it to run.

Re: Custom Property to store data in a standalone ap

Magice and Newbie4, Where to start? I’m sure I’m going to sound really dense. Most of the info you guys gave me is new, so it might take me some time to completely understand it. Problem is guys, I don’t know how to save data in a custom property which is then saved as an “external” stack in anothe...

Re: Custom Property to store data in a standalone ap

Programs (like LiveCode) are normally installed into a directory that has restricted permissions (Apple==>"Applications", PC==>"Program Files"). You need "Admin" rights to install it and to change it. Users can only execute programs that are in it. They can not write or save files in that directory...

But then the stack you open has to run in the IDE, that is with LC resident on the machine, no? It is not really a standalone.

Craig
It is essentially the same as a splash screen. It will run on any machine even one without LC. (provided you have all necessary external files)

Re: Custom Property to store data in a standalone ap

Here is a little trick to show how stacks that are not saved as stand alone apps can still act like it is one. Create a stack with 1 button. In that button script put these 2 lines of code : on mouseUp answer file "navigate to any uncompiled stack file" open it end mouseUp Now save it as a stand alo...

Re: Help with variables

why not do away with the global variable altogether and use a custom property? on openStack set the cStartArrow of this stack to false end openStack then to make the change set the cStartArrow of this stack to true and of course in the if statement: if the cStartArrow of this stack is true another t...

Re: Help with variables

@Magice, I do not see the broken global reference in the button handlers. "gStartArrow" is declared in both. The other globals are not declared, but they are not involved either. I assume it is declared in the card script. (?) @Peacfulrvr. And do everyone a favor. Place all your script examples wit...
