Can I set the font baseline in a standard pushbutton?

In working through a number of example stacks, I've noticed that the baseline for the text displayed in a standard Mac "jellybean" pushbutton is always 2 to 3 pixels too high. Is it possible to set the baseline property in a standard pushbutton? Also, is there any concept of the "System" and "SmallS...

iTunes-like design examples?

Does anyone have a pointer to an example stack(s) that implements an interface similar to iTunes or Apple Mail?

I see a lot of "custom" UI design examples, but I'd like to see an example of creating a HIG-compliant UI for a more business-oriented environment.

Thanks,
Tim

Re: Training Day example doesn't include graphics?

I haven't worked through that tutorial, but my guess is that you've got images in the stack that are referenced, meaning that Rev is looking for them on your drive. It does this both when you're working in the IDE, and then again at runtime. Unfortunately, the path to the image when you're working ...

Training Day example doesn't include graphics?

Hi Folks, I've taken the plunge and am learning to speak English again. I've been working through the Training Day Kiosk tutorial and I'm getting the hang of things pretty well. However, when I build the standalone version of the project for any platform, everything is working except there are no im...

Re: Windows: "echo" vs "open process"

What happens if you put the entire command into p just as if you were typing from the command line:

Code: Select all

put "echo MyStringToCheck | openssl sha1" into p
open process p for text update
...
I'm busy trying to get a handle on the various "process" member functions as well.

Examples using "process" functions to manage back-end tool?

Hi Folks, I've looked through all of the resources that I can find, but I'm drawing a blank. Can anyone point me to some example code that starts and communicates with a back-end command line tool using the "open process", "read from process", "write to process" and "close process" functionality? Th...

Re: Interactive Long Running Shell process?

Even more curiosity - examining the docs/dictionary, it appears that these functions actually were around in the "olden" days. It's too bad someone didn't associate what I'd originally asked back then with the " process " commands as I've stayed away from Revolution because of this apparently missin...

Re: Interactive Long Running Shell process?

Jeff and Jan, So that is the new "goodie" I was looking for. When I asked before (back around 2.5), we were looking at the "shell" object and there was no way the execute a command-line helper program that required regular updating of the UI elements over a long period. While the back-end tool was r...

Interactive Long Running Shell process?

HI Folks, I looked at Revolution back in the 2.x time frame, but the lack of an asynchronous shell option prevented me from moving forward. Has anything changed in the new Revolution Studio or Enterprise versions? To clarify my needs, I start an execv process in my Xlib code and get the output from ...
