Re: Mark menu item as checked

Had the way things were done in HyperCard card not been removed all this long, complicated discussion would not have been necessary. I assume (?) that the reason the HyperCard way was removed was for a good reason . . . . Yes. MC was compatible with SuperCard, HyperCard, and several flavors of 'nix...

Re: Livecode on chromebook

I'm not sure what your definition of really cheap is, but you can get a new one for as low as $150 and a used one on ebay for even less. But that would require a certain amount of motivation and I wouldn't blame you one bit if you were a little low on that.

Re: Livecode on chromebook

I just bought the Chromebook to test a current project, so no, you can't have it. :)

Re: How to hide an option menu when no selection

Interesting. It sounds like a side effect of the escapekey message: Handle the escapeKey message if you want to perform some action when the user presses Escape. The message is sent to the active (focused) control, or to the current card if no control is focused. So maybe an escapekey handler is all...

Re: Livecode on chromebook

I have nothing to add except that I'd love to run the IDE on my Chromebook, but don't have the time or knowledge to mess with the setup. But I did run an Android test app on my Chromebook and except for a few minor cosmetic issues it ran perfectly. That was good news because our target market is edu...

It worked for me, when mouse was within rect of control.
I'm probably not picturing the setup correctly in that case.

Re: How to hide an option menu when no selection

MouseRelease should never be sent if the mouse is within the rect of the control. I'd think the test here would always fail.

Re: Using external script only stack as behaviour

Gotta agree with Brian here. If you aren't using a version control system, adding stacks to the build is unnecessary. And if they are separate stacks, on any non-Mac OS it will produce a litter of extra files that can be lost or separated from the parent stack. Separate stacks also interfere with de...

Re: Using external script only stack as behaviour

However, what I did before posting the last was - take kaveh's un-altered example up there make it a substack of the main stack in his example (was intirgued by your post) save it all that way PROFIT! Erm, I mean, then I reopened it and it seemed to work. If you didn't didn't remove all stacks from...

Re: Using external script only stack as behaviour

Another way is to use the stackfiles to list the relative path. Then you can start using the stack by its short name. But either way works and the main point is that the behavior stack needs to be in RAM to be found.

Re: Can't hide an option menu when no selection

In the handler that displays the menu you can add a line that sends the command to hide it in a couple of seconds. See the "send" command in the dictionary. Use the "in <time>" option.

Re: App Bundle & Dynamic Delivery

Which apk did you upload first? Maybe if you start with the 64 bit apk, Google will recognize that you are uploading multiple versions.

Re: Possible to easily assign lists to variables & vice-versa?

But let's say I need a tab-delimited list (because that's what the Data Grid uses), and that some of the variable values could contain commas. It seems then there's no easy way to do it, since I can't replace commas with tabs, or split the items by commas. Seems like I'm back to creating a custom f...

Re: I have a bug when typing 0,35 or 0.35 in fields at Android phones

The were some problems using LC fields on mobile, and sometimes these included repetitions of user input among other things. Most of the problems have been resolved in the latest versions of LC but the best way to avoid them entirely is to use native mobile controls instead of LC fields.
