Re: MIDI Synthesizer with FluidSynth

Since I do not use Macintosh or Apple products, how hard is it to have an cross-platform version, at least supporting Windows? As a aspiring musician (Piano) I am very much interested in this work.

Thank you

Re: UI controls on iOS / MS-DOS?

LiveCode is cross-platform. Here, discussions are so much about iOS and Apple OS? By far, Windows dominates the desktop market, and Android is offered on so many other phones in the billions. I do not understand this gravitation towards Apple. (At one time in the past, the Apple cult has annoyed me ...

Re: Update SQL Query (Resolved)

Sorry for late answer. I only receive messages from the Forum once a day. The merge() function (please look up the Dictionary) is merging expressions/variable content with surrounding text. It makes it easier to combine variables and text. There is no other connection with the SQL and it does not ha...

Re: Update SQL Query

Well, thank you, but here I was trying to give ADDITIONAL best practice hints, not talking about specific database connection variants. I think, in this Forum such discussion is going on and has been addressed regarding connections methods. For newbies to database development, I suggest to first be ...

Re: Update SQL Query

It is a good idea from Thierry to publish something about best practice and conventions in the database section of this forum. I will be thinking about it and how to keep it short. I hope Thierry and others will join in. And, of course, conventions and best practice apply to LC in general and any pr...

Re: Update SQL Query

To make SQL statements easier to write, I am using the merge() function of LC which comes in handy here. For example consider INSERT, UPDATE or SELECT statements: function selectAll pTableName # Returns all records from the specified table of the current database -- pTableName is a parameter contain...

Re: Font flavours not rendering

@AxWald You are describing exactly what I am facing. To list the fontnames , they will show "Roboto", but none of the special faces even though present when executing the fontFilesInUse command. Setting the font to any of the font faces has no effect. It is possible to set it to bold or italic using...

Re: Font flavours not rendering

Yes, actually that is what I did. The font names only list Roboto as the font family. The font file names "in use" are all more specific and are listed as being used since I loaded them. No error. But no field is rendering them. Choosing "italic" or "bold" works, but it is not what I desire. There i...

@ Post by FourthWorld » 19 Apr 2020 Thank you Richard. You expressed very clearly what to expect now and in future from the HTML "engine".
