Re: Pop-up Menu and Tab Key

Macs don't have traversalOn for buttons, Windows does. That's the difference. It's typical to use arrow keys to navigate menu items and tab to traverse fields. A quick fix would be to put in an empty tabKey handler in the popdown to block tabs entirely, so users could only use arrow keys. Since this...

Re: Write and run code in standalone

Besides the EULA, it opens up your app to malicious intent. It wouldn't be hard to delete files, rename critical infrastructures, insert malicious files, etc. While children learning LC probably wouldn't do this, someone else might. So if you build this, you'll have to be scrupulous in sanitizing an...

Re: Multidimensional Arrays? Please Help with Lesson

I haven't looked at the lesson, but arrays can't be displayed as text so you'll always get empty in the message box or anywhere else that expects a string. They need to be converted to text before you can see them. However, the debugger does this for you so you can see them in the variable watcher. ...

Re: [Solved] Option for wrapping Code Editor text and how to remove spaces in field ??

One of the LC issues that drives me more crazy than usual is having to use those "\" at the EOL for every line. Every line? A carriage return is the usual end of line delimiter. You only need a backslash if you want to wrap a particularly long line. If I find I need to do that more often than not, ...

Re: Browser widget background color change

Just a guess, but try hiding the widget on preopencard, setting the html, and then using "show widget browser in xx milliseconds" in the opencard handler.

Re: Splash format

I'm not sure why that entry is in standalone settings, Android doesn't seem to support splash screens like iOS does. I'd do as Sphere does and just use the first card (although many Android apps don't bother with a splash at all.)

Re: Creating a installer

It's much simpler than that. Create key-value pairs as a web browser would do: key1=x&key2=y&key3=z Then: post tValues to URL tURL put the result into tErr put it into tResponse You won't get both, either the result will be empty (success) and the "it" variable will have the server response, or the ...

Re: Localize a currency for the in-app price tag

Do any other apps do this? All apps display a price pre-purchase: - Screenshot 2019-03-13 at 18.38.51.png - Presumably the currency is determined by the country setting of the App-Store, Right, but that's in the App Store itself. The question was how to query that currency from within the app and d...

Re: iOS standalone starts in landscape despite being set to portrait in standalone settings

Delete the copy on the device before installing the new one. It sounds like the older copy isn't being updated.

Re: Localize a currency for the in-app price tag

The App Store handles currency conversions for you, and unless they provide an API to get that info I'm not sure you can retrieve it. I think once a user has purchased in-app, the response may provide the currency (I'm guessing) but that won't help if you want to display a cost before a purchase. Do...

Re: [Solved] Option for wrapping Code Editor text and how to remove spaces in field ??

Autotab will prevent you from entering wrapped text in fields, so you won't get natural paragraphs. That's not a great solution. If there are no actual returns in the text, check the textheight of the field as Craig mentioned. It may be set to use very tall spacing, which would give the visual impre...

Re: Creating a installer

Sorry, but these are only for windows, if I want something cross-platform Well, like we said, Macs don't generally use installers. Linux has its own methods. So almost all the installers you find will be for Windows. For the license agreement, just open the card with no radio button selected and th...
