Re: Interpolate

You have prices depending on size = x*y (width*height). ... I would not like to confuse readers of my question with the original question posted by Fermin regarding the chosen subject. My question just fits the keyword "interpolation". Thanks a lot for the quick answer, -hh. Of course, I was simpli...

Re: Interpolate

Thanks a lot for the answers to the interpolate question. I have the questions the other way around depending upon width and height of an object, the price for such object changes in a non-linear form. How to find a function that would approximate the price values found? I believe this question has ...

Re: Report in LiveCode

Well, I am quite experienced with FileMaker and I also liked the reporting tool. I had built myself a similar report generator, not finished enough to publish, but maybe... Let me explain a bit the logic I see in creating a reporting tool that is fully based on LiveCode script. The principle is very...

Re: OAuth and google Calendar

Very well done. :D I have tested this GoogleCalendarTest shortly (more extensively later) and it works "out of the box". The problem will be for developers to start getting accustomed to the Google Developer API creating a project, assigning the scope (here Calendar scopes) , receiving the client id...

Re: Livecode 9.0.1 Community for Windows IDE stuttering

I have this issue with the script editor since quite some time in Windows 10, and i will not move to Apple computers. I suggest turning OFF everything that has to do with autocomplete, etc. Sometimes, I use a separate text editor instead and then paste the code into the IDE editor. Keep all at bare ...

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

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...

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...
