Re: Read / Write to SOCKET

Hi. I don't use sockets, but might you need to explicitly open a socket when you write back from the server? In other words, it may not be true that just because you opened a socket between those two systems in one direction, that socket was automatically set up to communicate in the other direction...

Re: Replace pict in buttons

Hi. What Sparkout said, and he is probably correct. But if the "pictures" are not the icons of the button (you can test this by asking for the icon of the button. If it is "0", there is no icon) then perhaps an image overlies that button. I only mention this because you mentioned "picture". That see...

Re: Restore decent looking controls?

I know that is so.

Did I mention that was the reason I stayed in 10.9?

I seem to stay in the past for all sorts of old fashioned, obsolete reasons.

Re: Restore decent looking controls?

Jacque. Just turning off the default property ends up with a white backColor in the button. I need to do some playing around, to figure out how to get what I have always considered a "normal" default button. I am used to the color and "feel" of OS 10.9 (or so) buttons. Is this deprecated in the mode...

Re: Tab Panel with visual effect - inconsistent?

Hi. Anything to get out of doing my day job. So I made a tab panel with five tabs as you said, and five fields with names as you said. I did this in the tab panel script: on menuPick tItemName repeat with y = 1 to 5 hide fld ("tab" && y) end repeat show fld tItemName with visual effect checkerboard ...

Re: Restore decent looking controls?

Klaus.

I know. But I can harvest the properties of the template button and apply them to a newly created button.

Or better, since there are several controls that bother me, I may resort to a custom property that holds several "templates", and apply as needed. I just wish I did not have to.

Re: Stack save problem in 9.0 - stack dissapeared - cant reload

Hi.

Please do try Klaus' suggestion. Locking messages will prevent any unwanted activity from fouling things up.

But I am keen to hear what went awry, especially if you really did not change anything from one session to another.

Re: Restore decent looking controls?

Hi Klaus. Right, should have been clearer. It is the default button that I can't stand. I guess I can script every default button to the templateButton, and roll my own. But this "blue" thing is over the top. It appears in checkboxes, radio buttons and Option Menu arrows. I recall this was why I nev...

Restore decent looking controls?

Upgrading from Mac OS 10.9 to 10.12, all my buttons now look like crap. Nearly solid blue and barely readable.

Is there a setting to make them like the good old days? Do I have to set up the templateButton?

Panos.

Well, I realized it is time to move on, so I updated to Sierra.

Thanks,

Re: Stop user pressing Enter in entry field

Hi.

Try this in the field script:

Code: Select all

on returnInfield
end returnInfield

on enterInField
end enterInField
LC will never see messages like "returnInField" that it uses to er, return in a field.

Re: Delete Card in LC 9 problem

Hi.

In v. 8 a command to delete a card would be queued until a running handler ends. Likely in v9 as well.

But you are correct. In v7 the command could be executed while the handler was running.

Feature, hassle or bug?

What is needed to be able to test for iOS?

Playing around with widgets, and thinking about mobile. I have an indy license, which I do not use, just having it to help support LC. But isn't that enough to be able to open the iOS simulator? The "test" menuItems in menu "Development" are disabled in my v.8 setup. And I thought that even in the C...

Re: Text Entry field Cursor

Ah.

Jacque may have identified the issue.

is it that you want the user to be able to click on a word or line, and then have LC extract the pertinent data for further processing?

Something like:

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
answer the clickText
...etc.
