Re: Scroller not displaying all info

Were you able to submit a bug report? Yesterday I think I hit the same thing on Android using a taller phone. The formattedHeight of fields and images is not being calculated correctly, it's too short.

Re: Custom keyboard

I went back and read the original post but I'm not clear on the goal. Is the question whether LC can create a custom keyboard for use system-wide like those in the App Store, or is the question whether LC can send keystrokes to another app from a LC app? The former can't be done in LCS, the latter i...

Is AppleScript available on iOS?
No. Sorry, I was thinking of desktop. For mobile you'd need a keyboard, and I guess if we're talking about WhatsApp we're talking about mobile. My mind wanders this time of night.

Re: Custom keyboard

I'm not (and neither is the OP) talking about controling just any random app, but instead, sending keystrokes to applications built for receiving just that kind of input. Well, there's receiving direct input and there's receiving remote input. If the app is built to receive out-of-app input, it wou...

Re: Custom keyboard

But given the implications, I'm guessing there are reasonable safeguards to prevent malicious Trojan Horse keyboards. Apple forbade custom keyboards for years until maybe 2 years ago or so. SwiftKey was anxious to get into the App Store, it's one of the best selling keyboards on Android. Apple fina...

Re: Custom keyboard

This is a pox as still trying to track down a way to off-load key presses to some external something. I doubt that's possible. Allowing one app to type into another would present security issues. Apps are written to accept input only from the OS. Someone with the right skills might be able to hack ...

Re: Scroller not displaying all info

One last question. Is the field inside the group sized to show all its text?

Re: Scroller not displaying all info

The problem is that you are specifying hard-coded values for the contentRect, which won't work on every device. Try this instead: put ("0,0," & (the formattedwidth of grp "myGrp") & "," & the formattedheight of grp "myGrp") into tContentRect Substitute the name of your group for "myGrp". This is an ...

Re: Scroller not displaying all info

The symptoms sound like an incorrect or misaligned contentRect. Are you using the formattedHeight of the field? Is the field in a group? If so, is it expanded to its full height inside the group? The top of the field and top of the group should both be at zero when the scroller is created. It would ...

Re: Replacing scroll bar question

You'd create a native input field by script using mobileControlCreate. This works with both Android and iOS fields so you don't need a widget at all.

Code: Select all

mobileControlCreate "multiline", "myField"

Re: Strangeness with "print card" command

It might also be due to the printer driver. I've heard that's a common problem with LC on Windows.

Re: Msg box still dicey?

I've seen some anomalies in the message box in the last few versions of LC, where it doesn't recognize the topstack and returns errors like "can't find handler" or "no such object" even when you're looking at the card and have been scripting it. When that happens you have to provide the long name of...
