Re: Livecode Drawing Standalone

I see you example use mouseEnter and mouseLeave. I have noticed that mouseMove, inside of which you can does tests line "if (x,y) is within tDrawingRect then ...", DOES NOT seem to get send when the chosen tool is the Pointer tool. Is that why you use mouseEnter/mouseLeave? Are there other message c...

Livecode Drawing Standalone

I have an old stack (built under LC 4.6.4) that has a component that does some simple drawing. There is a tool bar (some buttons and menus) and below that a drawing area (a scrolling group) A mouseMove handler sets the tool to the *pointer tool* or the graphics tool (with the applicable type set in ...

Re: Audio and Video export possibilities

Before worrying about A/V export options, I'd like to see solid cross platform A/V in LiveCode. As it stands, I have to figure out that some formats are supported by AVF/OSX and different ones by DirectShow and forget about Linux, iOS, Android, or HTML5. Trying to find the subset of formats that loa...

Re: locate language app

It is a shame that mobileCurrentLocale() and/or mobilePreferredLanguages() have not yet been generalized for all platforms (i.e. as currentLocale() and preferredLanguages() ) as these attribute are universal on all LiveCode platforms (except perhaps HTML5 where the question would be locale and langu...

Re: Associating additional Documents types for a Standalone

Hmm, 38 people (well I guess 37 no counting myself) have views this post with no replies. Does no one know how to do this? Or is everyone who does know busy building awesome Windows standalones with multiple documents types?

Associating additional Documents types for a Standalone

So in LiveCode's Staandalone builder, we can specify an icon for the application and a file extension and icon for a single document. How do we add more icons and associated file extensions to a standalone under OSX and Windows. For OSX, after you build the standalone, you can open the app bundle an...

Re: Column

"Column" is already in use with arrays. Since it's a reserved term, it may not be appropriate for another context. You are referring to the split and combine commands? The proposal in the bug entry also request using 'column' in the following form get column 3 of tArray -- return an array of the 3 ...

Re: Column

it is pretty easy to write your own function Um: well if that were the case Livecode might not have half the functions it has. Not arguing that. Just offering a possible explanation. LC doesn't have the resources to do everything people would like them to, so if I was in their position, choosing be...

Re: Column

I think one reason it has not been implemented is that it is pretty easy to write your own function to return a numerically indexed column from a tab and return delimited table. function columnFromTable pTable, pColumnIndex local tData set itemDel to tab repeat for each line tLine of pTable put item...

Re: Widget Palette

Or why not have scroll bars with a hide/show triangle or the drawing tools with a hide/show or etc. Brahmanathaswami is right. The ability to make named "views" for the tool palette with the controls you want for a given use the only ones in a given named view is (or should be) the ultimate end goal...

Re: Widget Palette

Since you invited comment in a post to the email list. I am inclined to disagree. Over time, LiveCode Ltd has suggested that more "controls" will be updated and revised as widgets. Having one set of buttons or fields in one palette and another set in another palette is inefficient. And to suggest th...

OSX About and Help menu issue under LC676

I have an application that when built into a standalone under LC665, for OSX, the About and Help menu work fine. The same application built under LC676 for OSX results in the all menu items under the Help menu (except for Apple's default search) greyed out and "About <appname>" under the <applicatio...

Does anyone out there have reliable scripts for determining the active email client on OSX and/or Windows? Including and especially if the user is using GMail? The issue is that when you use revMail (i.e. revMail address, [ccAddress, [mailSubject, [messageBody]]] ) it appears that Google GMail has a...
