Raspberry Pi

I have never used a Raspberry Pi...it looks like fun. But I do not know about LC and Raspberry Pi. Does the LC SDK work on it or can LC be used only for creating standalones that work on Raspberry Pi (as well as others too).

[SOLVED] Topics: read or not read

It seems to be working again. The 2 times that it was not, I was using my iPad and was signed in as myself. Yesterday, it worked correctly on my Macbook. Today it is back to working on my iPad.

So just an unexplained glitch.

Topics: read or not read

The forums here, in the past, had an indicator showing if there were new posts since my last visited. Topics with new postings had the text color of the subject as RED. That indicator no longer seems to be working for me. How can I change it back to the way that it was in the past? Anyone else seein...

Strict compilation mode

on mouseUp // local tAdd put 1 into tAdd repeat with x = 1 to 10 add 1 to tAdd end repeat end mouseUp This is just an example. If I have strict compilation mode selected in Preferences then there is an error noted at "put 1 into tAdd". That is expected. If I remove the "//" then it is declared and ...

Templates

I found "template" recently in the dictionary. Other than that, I have not found much info about where it might be advantageous to use them or really even how to use them . Please point me to a LC Lesson, video, or any source which I can use to better understand them. If I understand correctly, the ...

Re: Nothing new here

OP here... At first I was going to ask the OP how a new card could be made that way at all with such a peculiar construction. I have been watching videos and looking at LC Lessons. I picked it up somewhere in them or here on the forum. Anyway, I did not just get lucky trying to use English like cons...

Re: LC Syntax

mainly because I'd never call a card something (such as "firstCard") that seemed remarkably near to some sort of internal name the LiveCode engine might be using. Thank you, Richmond. The name "firstCard" would have never made it to a real app. I just wrote that for posting here. Thanks for the tip...

Re: Creating and destroying cards/controls dynamically

Gracias.

Yes, practice...that is what I am doing. I am reading, learning, watching the old conferences, and most currently, Lockdown Learning. When I cannot find what I need, I don't hesitate to ask here.

[SOLVED] Creating and destroying cards/controls dynamically

I just learned how to create a new card while my app is running by using "new card". Simple. I also created a new button on that card but it's properties are not necessarily as easy. In the Property Inspector, in the Size and Position tab, there is a button for "Fit Content". What is the syntax for ...
