Re: Hexagons and stuff

So . . . I did have to end up with a pupil who wants to make a hexagonal tiling game in LiveCode , didn't I? And, in theory, at least, that's very groovy indeed , until, that is, you also find out that he's such a pain-in-the-bum he wants to make his own hexagonal tiles . . . Now, making square and...

Re: cAPITAL lETTER pROBLEM

I wonder if you'd get the results you want by specifying the button names as unicode text. That is certainly a thought; however that won't affect teaching kids who find it hard to understand why a capital letter in the Bulgarian alphabet is treated differently to its lower case equivalent while tha...

Re: cAPITAL lETTER pROBLEM

insensitivity has been normal Hmm. Expect that everyone should learn idiomatic English. Well, that be fine by me, but I bain't sure that those Americans talk English; mayholp they talk American. AND, if one wants to be really bitchy I have always wondered why the LiveCode people are unable to spell...

Re: cAPITAL lETTER pROBLEM

Sensible, robust naming is LC 101. And here endeth the lesson. :D But, he who always wants to have the last word points out: On the teaching front, especially as I teach kids who, on a day to day basis, use a non-Latin alphabet, explaining to them that LiveCode is unable to differentiate between im...

Re: cAPITAL lETTER pROBLEM

Richmond needs to rename his images.
Indeed, and I did, and a right "bother" that was. 8)

Why do I think it would be "rather nice" if this 'bug' were fixed?

Re: cAPITAL lETTER pROBLEM

Again, I don't get this surely funny meme!?
Just put it down to cultural differences. 8)
I educate (and make fun of you sometimes)
you, and you annoy me.
That sounds a bit arrogant.

Has it occurred to you that you might annoy me as well? 8)

Re: cAPITAL lETTER pROBLEM

In theory, bogs , yes . . . BUT , while in my example stack SEND favours the image called "a" in my Devawriter Pro SEND favours the image called "A" . . . so hard to predict which one should be the default. I suspect (?) that when the system has a choice between "a" and "A" it will choose the object...

Re: cAPITAL lETTER pROBLEM

Hope this helps. Like most things: in some ways it does, and in others it doesn't. :D As a naive realist (fancy, philosophical way of saying I believe what I see), I find it convenient to give names to objects that make some sort of sense (to me at least), and as I spend most of my programming life...

Re: Simple Mathematics Question.

That should be very simple indeed, and the Maths is,
but the implementation is where things can get
awkward if you are relatively new to LiveCode.
