Re: Hiding code in a button in a commercial version of LiveCode

Bogs. anyone using the PB will see that code is listed in whatever object it is attached too, Which is why I thought further that storing the to-be executed code in a custom property, and running it from there was an even better kluge. If someone was to examine all controls in detail, they would fin...

Re: Hiding code in a button in a commercial version of LiveCode

Richmond. Surely you can place the code in some "remote" location, a hidden graphic, say, that nobody will ever suspect the existence of, much less try to read. And you can go further. Have the action button load the code from a custom property into the script of that graphic, execute it, and then d...

Re: Graphic help needed

I said: I never actually tried this before. but the number of lines (at least for me) of the effective points of a newly created circle graphic is 352. Odd? Not surprisingly, the number of the closest pixels to the ideal do not always map to the grid perfectly. Fooling around with the shape of such ...

Re: Datagrid not showing it's data

Be sure to save the DGData somewhere before you do anything rash. When you say "not fun", I interpret that to mean rewriting those billions of fields that Klaus mentioned.

But LC says that the number of objects in a stack is "unlimited".

Sparkout. I never actually tried this before. but the number of lines (at least for me) of the effective points of a newly created circle graphic is 352. Odd? ajperks. As Sparkout essentially said, you are looking for chords of a circle. The 352 notwithstanding, these can be referenced pretty close ...

Re: July is here

Richmond.

I think the SOCAL group has been around for a while, and I believe Richard Gaskin sort of runs it. They know who they are.

Re: Datagrid not showing it's data

Klaus, I don't think this can be an issue, after all, we are not in the 1980's. Even with 27,000 lines and 14 columns, and even with 100 chars per DG field, that is still only around 40MB. But the test might be interesting anyway. So Larry, make a copy, (I assume this one will also not show anything...

Re: Graphic help needed

Glad you are getting along. But if you set the points of the various lines, so that the first point of each is common to all, then those lines will radiate, er, radially outward from that single point. Such as: '200,200" "300,300" and "200,200" "100,300" etc. You will have to calculate the second po...

Re: More Hebrew Problems

All. Have we glossed over the fact that printing itself stopped simply because Hebrew characters were present in the text? How do it know? I would expect, and I am a newbie with all this unicode stuff, that at worst, some default "box" character would appear in place of chars that the printer could ...

Re: Graphic help needed

Hi. We got our code information from our heads. The snippets are not "published" anywhere; both Sparkout and I made them up while sipping coffee, or hot chocolate in my case. I don't like coffee. I digress. But do you see the point of both our later posts? Not that I figured out the problem right aw...

Re: Graphic help needed

I was actually ahead of Sparkout, who is perfectly correct: on mouseup put "tLine" & random(999) into tLine create grc tLine set the style of grc tLine to "line" set the points of grc tLine to 200,200, 300,300 set the top of last grc to the top of last grc + random(100) end mouseup Click all day; no...

Re: Graphic help needed

Hi.

Same situation in V. 8.1.7.

Clearly a bug, but odd, since how does LC "know" that there is already a line graphic on the card, so that subsequent creations only make rectangles?

Do you know how to submit a bug report? Otherwise I will do it.

Re: Graphic help needed

Hi.

Not sure if you posted after my revisions.

There is no evidence you are not mad.

I am gong back to v8, and see what happens there. Watch this space.

Re: Graphic help needed

Hi.

Confirmed here.

Subsequent clicks only produce rectangle graphics.
