Re: Double Low Quotation Marks

The idea behind a 'fallback' font is that it should supply ALL glyphs in case an end-user does not have fonts containing glyphs required by a piece of software installed on their machine. Reading the name of the LiveCode HTML5 WRONGLY there's a clue as to why it doesn't "cut the mustard": Droid sans...

Re: Double Low Quotation Marks

Mucking around in the HTML5 folder LiveCode spat out I came across a font called ' DroidSansFallback.ttf ', so I opened it up on Fontforge and found that Unicode address 0x201E is empty! The horrible rectangle is the standard "glyph missing" symbol: pain3.png Personally, were I really obsessed with ...

Re: Double Low Quotation Marks

A bit of initiative might have led you here: https://azuliadesigns.com/html-character-codes-ascii-entity-unicode-symbols/ I don't know what operating system you are using LiveCode on (and, theoretically at least, I shouldn't have to care) . . . I just set up a stack with one field and a button conta...

Re: Double Low Quotation Marks

Those low double quotes are the bane of my life as they are used in Bulgarian, and once someone has started using them in an Office document, every time, during translation, when I try to use a high double quotation mark ("), LibreOffice bungs in a „. They are "kept" at Unicode address 0x201E (Decim...

Re: Limit stack aspect ratio

Dear Klaus, it looks as if between the toilet ("bog" = slang for toilet) and the ginger nut life's just too full at the moment.

We do love you, really, promise. :D

That person will be looking at ONE of a number of possible solutions shortly. 8) the solution Just a peeri...

Re: Limit stack aspect ratio

it is still set to something less than that, to allow for the borders and the title bar.
That is problematic as LiveCode is not very good at "seeing" all the "desktop furniture"
(docks, taskbars, menubars, XFCE panels and so on) that desktop GUI systems offer.

Re: Limit stack aspect ratio

aspect-by-max

?

Presumably this means you want the stack to be the same size as the screenRect.

Re: Limit stack aspect ratio

Well, it isn't perfect , but it is a lot simpler than all the stuff above: in the stackScript : on resizeStack send "mouseDown" to me send "mouseUp" to me pass resizeStack end resizeStack on mouseDown put the width of me into NW put the round of (NW/16) into F1 put (F1*9) into NewH set the height of...

Re: Limit stack aspect ratio

This works with no obvious problems if one changes the WIDTH of the stack: Global NewH on resizeStack send "mouseDown" to me end resizeStack on mouseDown put the width of me into NW put the round of (NW/16) into F1 put (F1*9) into NewH set the height of me to NewH end mouseDown

Re: Limit stack aspect ratio

Something doesn't work here, and I don't quite know why:
on resizeStack NW, NH
put the round of (NW/16) into F1
put (F1*9) into NewH
set the height of me to NewH
pass resizeStack
end resizeStack
I suspect that the "set the width of me to NewH" tips the thing into an endless loop.
