Re: Hosting Standalone.zip on a CDN

Sorry, but why would the standalone file be a javascript file?

LiveCode standalones are monolithic.

Re: Navigating from once card to another problem

Images should not exceed 256 KB, which by today's standards is very small.

Re: Navigating from once card to another problem

Richmond's point was twofold:

1. You can only see one card in a stack at one time.

2. You cannot have different sized cards in one stack.

Re: Navigating from once card to another problem

its a much smaller card than card A I'm lost here . . . 1. ALL cards in a stack are the same size. 2. How can you refer to one card while typing in the field of another card? 3. Why do I feel that what you are describing (if I understand it correctly) might not be better with a stack "A" and a subs...

Re: Can't open a Standalone

executable bit I have had a similar situation with my online classes with kids sending me .docx documents via Viber and Whatsapp. Because .docx documents, like Macintosh apps, are folders containing .xml documents and so forth, they "come across" via Viber and Whatsapp in such a way that my Mac Mini...

Re: Can't open a Standalone

I never send apps via e-mail. I either: 1. Upload my app, zipped, to my DropBox account and send people the link. or 2. Do much the same sort of thing via GoogleDrive. Oh, and, Klaus , by-the-way, I've never had any difficulty shooting myself in the foot , or running anything on a Macintosh computer...

Basic Question about sound

After a period of some 16-17 years I decided to fish out a few stacks featuring phonetic sounds for both "British" English and American English that I wrote in about 2002 and re-jig them for some University students of my wife's. The original sound files have got mislaid (well, not really; currently...

Changing the line contents to be of varying lengths seems to make no obvious difference.

Re: Handling mouseText and mouseline events

All seems fairly straightforward:

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
   put the mouseText into fld "Lclicked"
   put the mouseLine into fld "Lnum"
end mouseUp

Re: Scrolling text -- like movie credits

Of course you could do this sort of thing: put 1 into KOUNT repeat until KOUNT > 500 set the scroll of fld "whereYourTextIs" to KOUNT add 1 to KOUNT end repeat not entirely sure how you would square that with messing around with textSize of lines (which would probably make the thing jerk). Ouch: jus...

Re: Scrolling text -- like movie credits

Animations of any kind has always been one of the weak points in LC I'm going to become like a 4 year old child and keep asking Why . If the HTML engine in LiveCode can turn LiveCode code into HTML 5 code, surely it should be possible to turn HTML code into LiveCode in the same sort of way? --- War...

Re: Scrolling text -- like movie credits

Impressive indeed!
It is wonderful.

BUT, I still wonder why it is not possible to run something as SMOOTH as that up in LiveCode.
