Native Mobile Scroller and Datagrids

Trying to get the native mobile scroller to work with a data grid but am having trouble on how to figure out the height of the content in the data grid to set as the contentRect for the scroller. Anyone know what I can do to get the content height of a data grid?

Re: Unable to test or test target on IOS.

Any patch available for this yet? Just downloaded LiveCode 6.7 (rc2) and I still can't seem to connect to the sdk for Xcode 6.0.1

Get the height of multiline text field with word wrap

Hey All, I have a text field that has the fixedLineHeight set to false and is set to word wrap. Is there a way to get the height of a line of text when the field is wrapping text to make it multiple lines high. I don't know how many lines will be in the text field and since it is text that is wrappe...

Re: screenRect returns wrong size

On the mac it seems you can't always rely on multiplying the screenRect by the screenPixelScale if you use a scaled resolution. In system information it shows that my display resolution is 2880 x 1800. If using the display setting Best (retina) which is 1440 x 900 then I can use screenPixelScale whi...

Re: screenRect returns wrong size

Looks like you need to multiply the width and height values from screenRect by the screenPixelScale to get the correct screenRect value.

My guess Simon is that you screenPixelScale value is 1. Mine is returning 1.25, so the size output I am seeing from screenRect makes sense now at least.

Re: Datagrid woes

If you get an answer on this I would love to know it as well. Every time I get in this situation the only thing I have gotten to work is re-create a new data grid. You can save some time by creating the data grid and then copy and paste the items from your old data grid row template into the new one...

Re: How to Create Shortcut Key Combinations?

Also to insert text where the cursor is in a text field you can just use the following line,

Re: How to Create Shortcut Key Combinations?

I only had the put lines in there so you can see output in the message window. You also don't need to check tVariable after the "altKey is down" line since you have already determined that the altKey and the "b" key are down at this point. on rawKeyDown theKeyNumber switch (theKeyNumber) case 98 -- ...

Re: How to Create Shortcut Key Combinations?

I think those rawKey down codes for letters are just the ASCII codes: I remember having to memorise the lot in 1976 when I was 14, learning FORTRAN IV. However those are now a subset of the Unicode consortium's codeset: http://www.unicode.org/charts/ You can download a PDF chart for a particular wr...

Re: How to Create Shortcut Key Combinations?

I found it best to use rawKeyDown for doing shortcut commands as keyDown does not work when trying to use the alt key as part of the shortcut. rawKeyDown is a little more annoying to use since you have to figure out theKeyNumber for each key you want to use. Here is sample code of the alt + b shortc...
