Re: When do you use a prefs or other file ?

Must have been the way you asked this -
No worries - I confuse myself most of the time.

I don't do much for other OS either but its good to have a look behind the curtain now and again.

Re: When do you use a prefs or other file ?

all the special folder path related paths are listed in the dictionary under "specialFolderPath". ooo that is clever - why didn't I think of that ...... oh I did ;-) For example what does "asup" resolve to ?

Re: When do you use a prefs or other file ?

Hi, Thanks for all your thoughts, I will probably store the data in ~users/Library/ApplicationSupport/ folder as this appears to be the correct location for such things on a mac : Contains all app-specific data and support files.

When do you use a prefs or other file ?

Hi, I'm curious how you would deal with the following situation. I am writing a small utility to aid the renaming and moving of raw image files created by a digital camera. While I'm going to be the primary user I can see that such an application may be of use to others so I need to include more raw...

Re: Opening a camera raw file

Dragging the thread back to the topic........ I would really like to be able to display a thumbnail of raw image. I have written a small app to rename and move image files from an memory card. At the moment I open an answer files dialog and select the images. This is o.k. but my renaming utility all...

Re: date and time of image files

Bump! I stumbled across this thread and thought I would add the following system call that works on MacOS: put shell("mdls -raw -name kMDItemContentCreationDate '" & tImageFileSpec & "'" ) into tMyVar Terminal describes the syntax: usage: mdls [-name attr][-sdb] [-raw [-nullMarker markerString]] [-p...

Hi, I have a utility application (code for never finished!) that displays pdf scans of A4 sized documents in a revbrowser on a stack. The revbrowser is positioned using an image control that occupies the lefthand side of the stack. The application allows the user to resize the stack to fit on variou...

Re: Unable to find files added in standalone settings

Hi, No I'm afraid that is not what happens at this end. The script was not found when the standalone was built and looked for the resources folder. However, it does work when the engine folder is used. "engine": The folder containing the LiveCode engine and the executable files copied in the standal...
