Re: IDE Lockups 9.6.0 on Mac

HI Richard, The message box is not always open when the feature occurs but I don't think closing it when it is makes much difference. Its quite hard to understand what exactly is happening, for instance sometimes I am unable to select some of the sub stacks while being able to select others. Occasio...

Re: IDE Lockups 9.6.0 on Mac

I think I am edging slowly towards a bug report : I'm working on a project to create a palette stack for use in the IDE. While working on the stack I am frequently changing its stack mode between top level and palette using the project browser. Now while a palette stack may be moved it seems that on...

Re: IDE Lockups 9.6.0 on Mac

Hi Jacque, Thanks but I am hiding the main stack, its the sub stack that gets closed which I guess really means means hidden. Also most of the time the IDE works as expected. I am failing to identify what causes the freeze but will keep searching. I half wonder if switching between stack modes using...

Re: IDE Lockups 9.6.0 on Mac

Thanks Paul,

I will give it a day or so and see what response this thread generates and then decide if its worth while creating a bug report. I need to develop a recipe that at least causes the fault some of the time. At the moment it appears random.

best wishes

Simon

IDE Lockups 9.6.0 on Mac

Hi, I am working on a project that contains several sub stacks and from time to time the IDE code editor locks up and/or a save dialog refuses to close. All these issues are hard to replicate making a bug report difficult to write. I wonder if others have experienced anything similar? In the case of...

Re: strange behaviour rectangle gradient

Hi,

I'm on Mac OS and LC 9.6.0. I am trying to understand gradients and the ramp setting and (still) see this problem. Quite confusing when I'm not sure what I should be seeing. At the moment I can't get rid of points on the ramp but I seem to add them very simply.

Re: Confused by name space

Thanks Klaus, I thought that might be the case. Its a pity the command does not extend "down" to controls to give us a "with" construct e.g. WithControl field "Tom" of card "Dick" of stack "Harry" set the textsize to 12 set the textstyle to "bold" etc etc end WithControl or perhaps even dot notation...

Confused by name space

Hi, I have some code that is working but that I think should fail : The following snip is being run from stack "A", it creates a new card in a second stack and adds a field to it. Next it changes some of the field properties. What I don't understand is why I don't seem to have to enter the "of stack...

Re: Stability of a button's ID property when cloning stacks

Here is an additional observation. Richard's post explains that a stack's ID number is only a placeholder for the next ID to be allocated and that the text name has to be unique. However, Livecode allows a sub stack to have the same name as another stack as long as it does not share the same main st...

Re: Stability of a button's ID property when cloning stacks

Just give your custom controls names, then you shouldn't have to fuss about ID numbers at all. If only it was that simple, the problem is with behavior buttons and to a lesser extent images. Looking at behaviors lets say that I name my group control smkPickList. This control will probably only be u...

Re: Stability of a button's ID property when cloning stacks

Ignoring the last few divergent posts thank you all for an interesting debate. My point of interest in IDs comes from creating a palette stack that stores custom controls for use in the IDE. Typically these are groups that also use a behavior button which may be either part of the group or external ...

Stability of a button's ID property when cloning stacks

Hi, One of the results when copying or moving controls between stacks is that Livecode usually (always?) assigns them a new ID number. This renumbering can cause issues with behavior buttons and image assignments . However, I have just had it pointed out to me that if the control, e.g. a button, is ...

Plugin "User Tools Palette" on Sample Stacks

Hi, Not sure if this is the bast place to post this message so feel free to redirect me or the message. I have written a stack designed to help manage your Custom Controls (groups). Once you have added a control to the palette stack it may be dragged and dropped into project stacks. Full instruction...
