Re: switching cards is really slow

Hi all, I'd like to post a quick note of admiration and thanks to the people involved in this thread thus far. I've found it particularly instructive, not only about the specific problem (the subtle sort that can deprive one of sleep) but also by demonstrating some very useful trouble-shooting techn...

Re: Re-execute a card ?

Hi there, Excuse my being pedantic, but your proposal introduces some design redundancy. Given that an App can scarcely be considered nice unless it's bug-free, surely the script of the "Make a nice App" button would simply include a CleverAutoBugRemoval handler, removing the need for the separate b...

Re: Re-execute a card ?

Hi there,

I'd like to join others who have welcomed you to the forum. Your idea for an Auto Bug-Removal button is excellent, something well worth raising in the "Feature Requests" section of the forum.

Regards,

Michael

Re: How would I make a radial menu in live code?

Hi there, It's good to hear you've got something working. The particular challenge is having the menu segments highlight as the mouse/finger enters them, during the "mouse is down" state. mouseEnter/Leave messages aren't sent, but mouseMoves, with the parameters newMouseH, newMouseV, are. The previo...

Re: How would I make a radial menu in live code?

Hi there, You could try the attached stack. I haven't tried to make it look like the example- the key at the moment is finding out whether the script will give you the sort of performance you want in iOS. Refinements can be made later. The five fields are in a group- the script is in the group, so "...

Revlet-friendly combo box

Hi all, An earlier query by Mike pointed out that the standard combo box does not function correctly in revlets. http://forums.runrev.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=8447&start=0 This is a problem because revlets are intended as a way to deliver LiveCode stacks on the Internet, running in the user's browser...

Re: Drop Downs / Combo Boxes not working properly

Hi Mike, There's a little bit to the tab question that I needed to explore. Pressing the tab key jumps the cursor from one text field to another, in the order of their partNumbers on the card. The tab key visits fields with lower partNumbers before those with higher partNumbers. If you are developin...

Re: Drop Downs / Combo Boxes not working properly

Hi Mike, Good to know things are progressing. I see now my version 2 is could be greatly improved- getting some sleep has helped. Something I'll look at, or others may have better ideas. Still, from the point of view of your project, given the client requirement that makes revlet deployment necessar...

Re: Drop Downs / Combo Boxes not working properly

Hi Mike, I've prepared an improved (I hope) version, tackling some of the points you mentioned earlier. The "combo arrows" are now images which look more appropriate, and the scripts have been reworked to make it easier to reuse the group by a simple copy and paste. I've tried to include some explan...

Re: Drop Downs / Combo Boxes not working properly

Hi Mike,

I've had a shot at implementing a "roll your own" version of the combo box, which seems to work in revLets. It's fairly simple, but does the job. See the attached stack.

Michael

Re: Drop Downs / Combo Boxes not working properly

Hi Mike, At least in my tests, the combo box control works correctly in the development environment, but not when the stack is deployed in the plugin. The only work-around I found was setting the menuLines equal to the number of lines in the menu i.e. if you have twelve month names, setting the menu...

Re: Drop Downs / Combo Boxes not working properly

Hi Mike, If there are no scripts written as yet, there are naturally none to post. You've mentioned some very interesting behaviour, which I'd like to be able to reproduce to investigate further. It would help if you could post a stack that exhibits the behaviour you describe, so we can be sure we a...

Re: Image Zoom

Hi Jesse, After some reflection, I believe the solution is to open the property inspector of image "magImg", under "Size and Position" tick the "lockLoc" box, and the zooming should work. Apologies to anyone confused by an earlier post on my part- I recommend not tackling Forum problems at 4:00 in t...

Re: temporal resolution & screenmouseloc

Hi there, I think the problem you've raised is somewhat subtle, but the term "temporal resolution" is a good way to describe it. This may be off the mark, but some years ago I hit a problem where I couldn't seem to detect on-screen motion, which is a change in position over time, within a shorter ti...
