Re: Button Error

Good job, Keith! (But fix the coding errors :P ) Just kidding! :D :shock: Don't DO that to me! :lol: :lol: Seriously though, it's a perennially challenging thing for a commissioning editor: finding someone who's an expert in a topic AND who can communicate well. I've spent my working career on bein...

Re: Button Error

I purchased the "You Can Make An App" magazine in 2014 from a local computer store in St. Louis. Could be this MacFormat Magazine? https://www.amazon.com/Macformat-Make-Everything-Sketch-Store/dp/3293546439 I have a copy somewhere, but as I wrote those particular tutorials I also have the original ...

Hi Keith,

a tableField is "just" a tab delimited text.
But...
Hang on a second...
[SFX: mind blowing]

Thanks Bernd, this is a very cool revelation. Time for me to experiment!

Re: Table keywords missing from Dictionary?

Huh. Okay, it’s clear that I need to rethink what I thunk about tables! The reason I thought cellEdit and cellFormat would be valid words in the LCC language is because that’s what’s in the tooltips for certain checkboxes in the table inspector. Normally the words in those tooltips show the relevant...

Table keywords missing from Dictionary?

LC 9.0.1 I'm exploring table fields, but the LC Dictionary seems to be missing a number of entries. When I type "cell" into the Dictionary's search field I get very little, and I don't get anything for cellEdit, cellFormat, and so on. Where can I find info about these items and other table-related w...

Re: Mojave and version 6

LC 9.0.1 works fine in Mojave for me. 32-bit apps in general work fine, although you’ll see a one-time warning when launching them. However much someone might dislike and perhaps mistrust OS updates, sticking with an old OS version is only a good idea if they don’t make software for others to use. T...

Re: imageSource problem

Thanks Klaus – very good advice. I’ve been caught by that in the past; I only leave it like this when I’m trying to isolate a behaviour by trimming things back. I shall go sanitise my code now. 8)

Re: imageSource problem

I have one image object in my card, and I use that as a temporary store for importing and resizing each original photo. So... I think I understand you, and hence the problem. Do you mean that each imageSource character is a ‘live’ reference to the actual, er, image source? So when I loop around and ...

imageSource problem

I'm hitting some frustrating behaviour, I hope someone can help me eliminate it. I want to set a number of different images as the imageSource for characters in a scrolling field, one per line. When I run my script to do more than one image (with a repeat loop going through my list of file paths) wh...

Re: Perspective distortion of a bitmap image?

Wow. Those example stacks really are amazing things! I'm going to have to do some serious digging, reading and pondering, I think, but it is fantastic that LC *can* do this and that those stacks exist. Thank you Klaus and Hermann, both! BTW, the first page of that thread is even better, as it contai...

Perspective distortion of a bitmap image?

I’d like to take a triangular section of an image and apply a perspective-style distortion to it, converting an A-shaped triangle to an H-shaped end result. The top would be massively distorted, I know, but that’s fine. Apologies for the crude ascii graphic! /\ |—————| / \ –> | | / \ | | —————— |———...

Re: Writing UTF/8 from a field?

FTP sends passwords in plain text, considered too dangerous to use outside one's internal network, given the hostile nature of the open Internet these days. Good advice, exactly what should always be said when old-school FTP is invoked in LC. Fortunately, for this specific case it's a tool made jus...

Writing UTF/8 from a field?

I have a quick-n-dirty tool for generating HTML and posting it, so I can keep a schedule in a web page up to date without mucking about writing HTML directly. In LC I use tabbed text in a field, and I parse/convert this content to a table structure (wrapped in the rest of a basic HTML page), and upl...

Re: Can I tab text in a field

Nice try, but the browser wins. :-/ It doesn't even tab through available fields in the card; it jumps straight out to some invisible browser focus on the first tab, then to the address bar on the second, then back to the point where the cursor was in the original LC card field on the third. It's so...
