Re: Is learning LiveCode worth it from jobs perspective?

I strongly echo what Richard said, but I understand completely where you're coming from. LiveCode has been around for a long time (and under other names - Revolution, and earlier, MetaCard), and like Richard, I've been using this code base since the mid-1990's. LiveCode jobs (at least for me) tend t...

Re: Delete Stack Different in LiveCode 6?

I opened that fine stack "Signing Assistant" by Obleo Bleck, who must be known to all who struggle with getting our LC apps submitted to the Mac App Store, and when I tried to modify and save the script, I found all sorts of things that now throw errors but didn't when he so kindly wrote it. For ex...

Re: mergDataGridScroller / SOT DropTool and LC Community

DropTool appears as "corrupt" in LC Community, likely due to the fact the DTSecurity sub-stack is encrypted. That's correct... 2.) Any advice on using DropTools with LiveCode Community? I have a "beta" version of DT that works with LC Community that I could send you if you are interested... send me...

Re: Delete Stack Different in LiveCode 6?

I've used "delete stack" in 6.1.1 with no issues... Is it possible your stack is not open at the time the command is executed? If it is actually open, can you show us the complete line of code that you're executing (in context if you can) so we can review it?

Re: Checking a string for spaces

If I have a filename called "The movie.mov" contained in a string say tFilename and I want the movie player to play that file without error?. FYI: If you're working with a full path to the file, and you're using Windows, you can use the shortFilePath function, which returns an 8.3 formatted file pa...

Re: Is MobGui the only way of developing Mobile Applications

There's also the iPhone Control Kit. Has a lot of controls, but is a bit more hands-on than MobGUI.

Sorry for the double-post, but I discovered that although the full download was updated to 1.1, the "check for updates" one wasn't... So to anyone who ran the update before you read this post: if you check the "About DropTools Palette" and it doesn't say "1.1", please do another "Check for Updates" ...

Re: How do I create a function call w/variable no. of params?

Another way you can do it is by using the params() and paramCount() functions. Here's a simple example: function AddEmUp put 0 into tTotal repeat with x = 1 to the paramCount add param(x) to tTotal end repeat return tTotal end AddEmUp put AddEmUp(1,2,3,4) --> 8 put AddEmUp(10,13) --> 23 Hope this he...
