Re: Red dot breakpoints do not stick in v9

WHAT???

Red dots now stick too much?

I have never seen this, and never want to. Is there a recipe for this disaster?

Re: Red dot breakpoints do not stick in v9

Going back to red dots. 9.0.4 seems to hold from a trick earlier in this thread by Simon: 1) open up the stack with the breakpoint issue. 2) select clear all breakpoints from Debug menu. 3) Save Stack 4) quit Livecode 5) launch Livecode and re-open offending stack. 6) Add breakpoints. If I am workin...

Re: Bye Livecode

I hope you do not give up on LiveCode just yet. And like any large endeavor, Livecode has a learning curve. But at its core, it is so conversational that it is hard for me to believe that almost anyone cannot learn its structural foundation and build from there. Once you do get that foundation, the ...

Re: Red dot breakpoints do not stick in v9

Richard. but I rarely need it. I can usually figure out what I need from a well-placed answer dialog faster I am astonished. I could not live without the debugger, spending LOTS of time there in every project I work on, large or small, and I also write perfect code. Did I mention that I am astonishe...

Re: Red dot breakpoints do not stick in v9

Richard. It doesn't always happen. I just made a small test stack and tried it. The red dot sticks no matter what I do. I then went to a large script in an existing project with lots of stuff in it. The red dot is always ignored if I add or subtract lines above the dot. It cannot be that the length ...

Re: Red dot breakpoints do not stick in v9

Just tried v.9.0.4. Red dots still do not stick. A shame, because these could be such a time saver, and they are easily spotted without having to refer to the "breakpoints" tab in the SE. They cannot be used, because it is more work to go back and constantly reset them than it is to type hard breakp...

Re: Removing items from a delimited list

Hi.

What Klaus said.

Now check out "offset" in the dictionary. There are a dozen different forms, each tailored to your needs.

All true. Its is just a matter of how much management is required, and the benefit/hassle ratio.

Re: Option Menu

All good stuff. If one wants to present a "title" in a menu button, one can: 1- set the label of the button to the title independently, the button contents reserved for "working" menuItems. 2- set the first line of the contents to the desired title, and select only the remainder. One can manage to l...

Re: Option Menu

Setting the label of a menu style button will indeed display that text. But it does not change the contents of the button, so the available menuItems remains the same. It is certainly may be useful sometimes to do that. But is that what you meant? In other words, is: i want the option-menu value to ...

Re: Option Menu

Hi. Not sure what you mean. You can certainly set the menuHistory of a menu-style button remotely. This has nothing to do with disabling that menu button. You can simulate, under script control, the clicking on a menu-style button as well: click at the loc of btn "yourOptionButton" Clicking on the d...

Re: How to create a new label field programmatically?

Bogs. a locked field can act like a button only if it is completely locked. Well, yes, in that a locked field will receive "mouseUp" messages. I am happy to know, again, that within LC object types, the differences are only in their properties, and you can transform one into another. The greatest le...

Re: How to create a new label field programmatically?

I have several times, for this or that reason, gotten the properties of two objects and written a handler to separate the values that either do not appear in each, or are different in each. This gadget would not have helped me here, since I would not have tested that particular property in that cont...

"ever"

I found both of those terms in the real world, but they do not necessarily go together.
