Re: URL specification change LC8.1 to LC9.x

I had a related issue yesterday. SpecialFolderPath preceeds the URL with a slash, so if you use "file://" in the URL you get three slashes at the front. This worked fine on Mac, Android, and in the iOS simulator (which uses Mac file paths) but failed on a real iPhone. To fix it I needed to use "file...

Re: "Could not compile service support class"

What version of the Java SDK do you have? LC requires 8.1. Also, this lesson may help:

Re: Space Oddity

It could be that you have a system pref set to open documents in tabs. Choose "Manually" to stop the behavior. Use tabs in windows on Mac On your Mac, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Dock. Click the “Prefer tabs when opening documents” pop-up menu, then choose an option—Always, In...

Re: iOS mobile player problem

You might try LC 9.6. It's in early development right now but I hear they fixed some player issues on mobile apps.

Re: Cannot add script only stack in Standalone Applications Settings

Is there a reason to assign the script as a behavior and then also start using it? Typically behaviors are private to specific controls, while stacks in use are like backscripts that are in the message path for everything.

Re: Cannot add script only stack in Standalone Applications Settings

Interesting. I've always assumed the files went into the Copy Files pane and I don't think I've tried adding them to the Stacks pane. Which is a long way of saying "I don't know why that happens."

Re: Cannot add script only stack in Standalone Applications Settings

Script-only files are text files, so they go in the "Copy Files" pane. They aren't binary, so the Stacks pane won't accept them. When an app opens a script-only stack file, it creates a temporary stack (in RAM only) and puts the text of the file into the temporary stack script. From that point on, t...

Re: Detecting MouseEnters

You may not need to move the beetle at all if you set the enabled of it to false, click at the mouseloc, and then set the enabled back to true. Disabled objects pass mouse clicks through to the underlying object. You might want to see if controlAtLoc(the mouseloc) works as well when the beetle is di...

Re: Using a value as a key in array

What Richard said. In my case, using numeric references is the cleanest way to do it. There's no danger, numeric array keys are unique references.

Re: Using a value as a key in array

A couple of posts recently involving array issues when keys are numbers. This usually because it is left up to livecode to supply them. This is similar to numbering your field names. Don’t It depends on the situation. Usually I name array keys but in my current project I need numbers. The array rep...

Re: How to empty browser cache

I was just going to suggest the same thing. I generally use a "query" construct on the theory it's more likely to force a reload : www.domain.com/page.html?s=128394i7282 It doesn't matter what's in the query string as long as it's unique to the session. The seconds is convenient for that. The idea i...
