Re: Setting text style of disabled controls

Mentioning Material Design ist just mentioning one example of a well structured and platform-independent design school or "framework" given for free and developed for years. LiveCode promises to develop once and deploy everywhere. This in itself is actually huge. Now, what about UX/UI in this case? ...

Re: Setting text style of disabled controls

Richard: GMTA. What you describe is more or less where I was headed. I would very much like to continue the discussion on UX, Material Design, CSS, ... and how it could relate to LiveCode. Maybe, Richard, you could suggest which Forum would be suited and possibly move the discussion there. To me, an...

Re: Setting text style of disabled controls

Hi Richard, thank you for answering and raising the question to me. Well, it is simply a matter of choice whether a disabled button just has a grey text without any 3D effect, or not, or maybe has a light bluish or reddish grey when going into details of design. It will still "appear" to be disabled...

I must admit, it never occured to me that I can show graphic names. Much easier workaround. I completely missed that. Thank you.

Re: Setting text style of disabled controls

What will be the benefit to the user in breaking from well established conventions for the appearance of disabled controls? Once we iknow the goal we'll be better able to find a good solution to support it. Hi Richard, to the contrary, I want to use styles that are part of other style guides and ar...

Mousedown (on mouseDown) 4. Disabled (the disabled of control xy) I would like to override the built-in styles for s...

Forum feature request: Show date/time of last message

Using my smart phone (the new forum rendering is responsive, very good), I would like to see on each forum header level when the latest message was supplied to this forum. Otherwise, I have to open each forum to check -- which is cumbersome. This is an enhancement request.

Re: POP IMAP information

I am also trying working out access to Gmail through POP3, IMAP and Gmail API (OAuth 2). Do you have such library already? Or could you post eventually the "log in" procedure script from start to end?

sqlite_sampler.rev not working

I am using Revolution Media. I downloaded the sqlite_sampler.rev. In no way it was possible to execute the revOpenDatabase(...) command. It always opens the script editor. It seems the external functions are not provided. I could not find any solution in the FAQ or anywhere. Also trying to open furt...
