Re: How to sort out this

I was thinking of using arrays too but alone it doesn't identify the duplicates string. So I'd combine the repeat loop and the array method. The loop identifies the repeated string and the array removes all instances. I'd have to check, but I think using an array will also solve the problem where no...

Re: Android scroller

With some complicated groups I do see some lag but others sometimes work smoothly. I haven't figured out what causes some scrollers to do that. Just in case, make sure none of the inside controls have a layermode set, they should all be static.

Re: Android scroller

I see. Another requirement is that the group must be "unadorned" -- which means, no scrollbar or borders. Try removing the scrollbar. When I'm developing I use this in a preOpenStack handler:

Code: Select all

set the vScrollbar of grp x to (the environment = "development")

Re: Android status bar bug

I think you should report this as a bug at http://quality.livecode.com.
For now, you might be able to work around it if you add this to the script when the keyboard deactivates:

Code: Select all

set the backcolor of this stack to the backcolor of this stack
That forces the engine to redraw the card.

Re: Android status bar bug

Do you mean the navigation bar at the bottom? None of the screenshots show the top status bar.

Re: Android scroller

You're on the right track, acceleratedRendering must be in effect and the layermode must be "scrolling". However, only the topmost control is affected. Since your fields are in a group they are not candidates, the group itself is. The solution is to either ungroup the fields and scroll each one indi...

Re: About LiveCode

meanwhile I loved the application browser (fast and easy).
The application browser is still available in the Plugins menu, called revApplicationOverview. It's all I use, I never open the project browser.

Re: cAPITAL lETTER pROBLEM

On the teaching front, especially as I teach kids who, on a day to day basis, use a non-Latin alphabet, explaining to them that LiveCode is unable to differentiate between images called "abc" and "ABC", but CAN differentiate between images called "щюя" and "ЩЮЯ" is a bit of a headache. That made me...

Re: Old standalones work, IDE versions don't

Changing the backcolor of the answer dialog is a pretty common thing to do and is only cosmetic, so it's doubtful that would interfere, especially if it's done before the dialog displays. There have been a lot of changes in the last two years, so it's possible you did find a minor bug. It wouldn't h...

It isn't a bug. Case insensitivity has been normal for xtalk since HyperCard. In fact, LC improved on it by adding a way to distinguish it more easily during comparisons.

Re: No way to edit a script !

Can you select the object with the edit tool? If so, can you open the script if you right-click it and use the popup menu?

Re: Old standalones work, IDE versions don't

Immediately after an answer command, try adding these lines to the handler:

Code: Select all

toplevel the owner of me
set the defaultstack to the owner of me
This again assumes the script is in the card. If you can post a relevant handler that includes an answer command, we might spot something.

Re: Furniture

It seems to be working here. My dock is on the side, and the screenMouseLoc shows the same width as the working screenrect shows. Put "the screenMouseLoc" into the message box, carefully align your mouse with the top of the dock and then hit the return key. See how that compares to the figures in th...

Re: Furniture

The "effective" modifier was added primarily for mobile to accommodate the situation where the keyboard is displayed. In that case the working screenrect and the effective working screenrect will be different. I assume there could be cases on desktop where this would also apply though I can't think ...
