Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

postscript THe forums have become the basic lifesaver for my most urgent problems I have making app, thanks to a few really kind people. Nevertheless, it is insanely difficult to get clarifications of things when communication is not back and forth as easily as it is with talking or chatting. I woul...

Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

Breakthrough: I did it. Here are the 4 major errors I made: The resource file name needed to be the same as the document file name. (I had the Standalone file as the app resource name. I never understood that they are basically the same file. ) There were uppercase letters. I needed to delete ".live...

Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

Hi Jacque

I'm so impressed with myself that I came to the same conclusion today. It may be an incorrect path or name. Now I will try testing it out. Thanks, Max

Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

Hi Klaus, Yes, This is how I originally had it. The stack.livecode ("Testb") was included in the Splash.livecode ("Testa") via the "Copy files" tab , before making the standalone So the Splash.livecode standalone would create a stack.livecode in the documents folder that was completely empty. The ur...

Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

OK Klaus The main Stack is in my documents folder. I am ready to add the code you shared, and build a standalone. Here is here I am stuck : What is the "editable" stack That I add via the "Copy files" tab? I understand you to say I need only one stack. So what am I adding? DO I need 1 stack or two? ...

Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

Hi Klaus, Please forgive me. I must be dense. I have read the sentence below many many times, and I just do not understand what this means. Perhaps that is why things are not working, -- "I meant that you have to copy the stack inside of the app package "testa.livecode" and copy it to the users doum...

Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

Klaus, You were very clear the first time. I understood exactly what you were saying. I did exactly as you suggested. The error seems to be with put url("binfile:...) into url ("binfile:...) It makes a file with the correct name in the correct place, but is completely empty. I am not sure why this i...

Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

Hi, Thanks again to all of you who are still offering advice and not giving up on me. First, I cannot add a stack file named "testa.livecode" to my standalone via the "Copy files" tab in the "Standalone Builder Settings" because that is the name of the source file. The target file "Testb" I can and ...

Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

Hi Klaus, Thanks for staying with me. I made your changes, but I still get the same errors. The second file "testb" wont open and the document file has 0 size and the error message says it is not a livecode file. I tried if there is not a file tTargetStack then put url("binfile:" & tSourceStack) int...

Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

Thanks Klaus, THis seems simplier I tried. When I open the app, it did create a new file in the document folder. But the file did not open, and showed a file size of 0. Also when I double click on the document file, I got the error: "This is not a stack" on openstack ## Create path to RESOURCES fold...

Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

Thank you bogs, for taking the time and effort to assist me. Unfortunately, because it is difficult for me to explain things clearly in written form, I am still having difficulty. Let me try again: I wrote a launcher stack and saved it as a standalone using LC 8.1.6 for Mac OS 10. I wrote a second s...

Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

I am trying to make a launcher app so I can store information in the second stack . The app and the stack are in the same folder. Im beyond frustration. I can't even add an attachment to this forums window to show an example. I read the documentation which didn't help I tried using on mouseup open s...
