Sockets in Mobile

So I have a question: when are sockets on mobile going to be supported? Will it require an extension? I know about Monte's MergSocket; but that is iOS only so kind of pointless if we want to use sockets on Android. The Roadmap here says that networking is "one half of LiveCode 8"; but it seems like ...

Skinning Widgets

So I realize that there's a theming API being worked on; which is great and all. As far as I know, that API will be able to switch between native platform widgets (iOS or Android buttons, and so forth). But my question is more basic: given an extension like the HeaderBar--can we recolor it? Or the r...

Do we have to worry about FREAK?

So just as the subject says, do we have to worry about the FREAK vulnerability if we are using encryption in LiveCode? I've not found anything on the forums.

Data Models

I have some basic questions for the experts here. How do you handle data models? In traditional programming you have structs and objects; with functional programming you have lists and a vast array of functions to perform on those lists; Livecode has an associative array and custom properties of an ...

Re: Retaining Backwards Compatibility in a Changing World

I like Django's system: a clear roadmap of features that will be affected in the future. Right now, I think Django is at version 1.7 (and change). Version 1.8 will in fact remove features. This was announced back when 1.6 was released. Those features work just fine in 1.7, but they issue warnings. D...

Re: Retaining Backwards Compatibility in a Changing World

Why not do what Apple does? They have target SDK's that you build against; so you aim for 10.7 and higher, or whatever. And then require developers to, in preferences for a project, issue a target build and maybe an SDK build (so you can use all the new stuff, but it builds an app compatible with wh...

Re: map, reduce, select, lookup, every, some

Did any of these fantastic ideas get added? I'd love to have a map, filter, and reduce functions. By that I mean where we can take a list or array and apply an arbitrary function to them. Currently we have filter, which while nice isn't filtering an array according to the results of an arbitrary fun...

Re: Showing only one border?

Well, it is unfortunate that we cannot turn a variety of sides on and off. As for creating a line graphic, yes of course. Just set the points of the line to the top, right (or whatever side you want). But When my line is scaled to fit mobile... it wasn't staying straight. So I built my background gr...

Showing only one border?

Is there a way to only show one border on an object; specifically the top border of a field? In HTML you can control which border is shown, is Livecode capable? I've searched and found nothing, surely this has come up before. I tried to do just a straight horizontal black line, but when I test in th...

Circular Progress Bar

So I'm a bit stumped. The client wants a circular progress bar: circular progress bar.jpg How can I build this in LiveCode? The grey background is the background, the yellow is the percentage done part, and the green is fixed, with the current percentage value as a label in the middle of the ring. M...

Re: how i can have one date picker in iOS and Android?

There is another approach: roll your own spinner. There are at least three live code libraries I have seen to do this for you: WheeLib (in the run rev store), which is a commercial product and then Bernd built two of them. WheeLib is, frankly, not working on LiveCode 7. Don't bother with it. Bernd's...

Re: Box on selected line?

Thanks Simon. Cautiously it appears to have fixed it. I saw it show up briefly in the IDE but not yet in the simulator. So thank you very much! I wish we had a "cheat sheet" of "Do this on Mobile to clean off the Motif theme." For each control, because buttons suffer too. And the progress bar? Is th...

Re: Why so hard to purchase LC?

Well, the thing was I didn't know my bank was like that--the previous year it was a client that graciously paid for the software, and this year I get to pay to renew. So it happened with different cards, banks, and accounts; I just figured it was a fairly common occurrence. It is frustrating, though...

Re: Box on selected line?

Thanks Klaus. Unfortunately MobGui doesn't work in LiveCode 7 (at best, mediocre) and tmcontrols is iOS only. :( So how could I fix that black box, or roll my own, as it were? I've already changed the vast majority of the look; what function controls that black box? It only appears initially; when y...
