Re: erratic movement of controls with repeat

I know LC is not an animation program I didn't know LC was a program at all: I thought it was a programming language wrapped up in an IDE. It is possible to do animation on my 1981 BBC Micro Model B using BBC BASIC . . . as it is in most other programming languages. One should be able to perform an...

Re: distorted graphics when using move or set loc

IFF the graphic object is grouped (either by itself or in combination with other objects) surely the 'trick' is to move the group rather than the graphic? Of course that presupposes the graphic HAS to be grouped; if it doesn't, then ungroup it and you shouldn't get the "eclipse" that you are gettin...

Re: distorted graphics when using move or set loc

Pretty clunky "over here" on 64-bit Linux (LC 9.0.1), and a sort of flashing effect at the leading edge.

Re: distorted graphics when using move or set loc

There seem to be a number of variables there apart from LiveCode itself: Your computer's processor. Your computer's graphic card. How those interact with the version of Windows you have installed on your computer. It might not be a bad idea to run the stack on a more up-to-date machine and see if th...

Re: distorted graphics when using move or set loc

It is not clear whether you are moving a GRAPHIC or an IMAGE,

and it is not clear HOW you are moving it.

If you could explain these that would make any attempt at answer rather easier.

Re: What are you working on?

1. Teaching English as foreign language. 2. Meditating on the Bengali writing system. 3. Wondering whether I can get off my fat, lazy behind enough to work out a one-year school curriculum for LiveCode based on English and Scottish education department requirements. https://www.sqa.org.uk/pastpapers...

Re: Commercial product offer

I have found that with all the programming languages I have learnt textbooks don't help
much: fiddling around oneself and talking to more advanced learners has always served me better.

In this respect the LiveCode Use-List and this Forum are invaluable.

Re: Code for a wizard

One way to get round the lack of a 'pause' command might be to have
two halves of your script in mouseDown and mouseUp.

Re: Pan Left and Right Audio Revisited

That presupposes your audio file has 2 channels (left and right), or you are able to play
2 sound files simultaneously.

As far as I understand, Livecode cannot play 2 sound files simultaneously.

And, I don't think LiveCode can access different channels saved in a sound file.

Re: WILL LIVE CODE WORK AFTER BREXIT?

That said, "Ivan" and "Gregori" are far more common in Russian-influenced countries than in Serbia. Very, very funny indeed. Serbia is very largely oriented towards Russia. As "Ivan" and "Gregori" are Slavic names they are (especially "Ivan") as "common as muck" in Slavic countries (particularly Or...

Re: Livecode still way too slow....

Why do I feel that the table field is an orphaned feature which got abandoned when someone cooked up the dataGrid? I believe it is a great shame that the table field is not what it could be as it is far easier to cope with than the dataGrid while offering a lot of useful features. Livecode still way...

Re: Livecode still way too slow....

I so want LC to take over the world.
Not a very good idea as monopolies go mouldy after a while.

But I do want LiveCode to take what I believe is its rightful place in
the top 10 programming environments, and the top banana in school.
