Re: Another way of assessing LiveCode

That's not SuperCard's script editor. It may not be, but it is what end-user's are most likely to pick up on via a drop-down menu. dropD1.png If THIS is the scriptEditor , then it is not as obvious: scriptThing.png usability.jpg Both SuperCard and LiveCode have, at one time or another, laid claim t...

Ho, Ho, Ho . . . I don't think anyone round here is getting "bogged-down" in identity theft. 8)

Re: Another way of assessing LiveCode

The SuperCard scriptEditor is far, far better than the LiveCode one if you don't want to think or have any freedom of movement. While I can see that it might be a good thing, rather like PowerPoint is a good thing for people who like slide-shows, it makes SuperCard look like a plastic bath-toy, whil...

Another way of assessing LiveCode

The People at SuperCard have just sent me a message about the latest (and supposedly last) Beta of version 4.8 of SuperCard (it's been in Beta for 2 years): http://www.supercard.us/supercard-48-beta.html so I've downloaded the thing and started it up on my Mac OS 10.7.5 polycarbonate iMac . . . Now,...

Re: livecode and *Readability.js* (='.'=)

That is, using different words proper to one's own language (in this case Latin) to translate a concept of another language (perhaps Greek). I'm not sure how far you can stretch this analogy: after all, between languages only very naive people (well, and Google "translate") think they can translate...

Re: Messing around with capital letters.

I know this will come across as extremely "stuffy" and "conservative", but I think that children who are being taught programming should also be "dragged" through a bit of text manipulation instead of just games, games and games . Certainly, last Summer the children I taught some BBC BASIC and LiveC...

Well, that's what happened just now in Mac OS 10.7.5 with LC 8.1.9

I have included a picture of the standalone with the shot of the answer dialog in the standalone
so you can see the problem is that the dialog inherits the backGroundColor of the stack.
