Re: Future of LC?

Apologies, I wasn't really thinking of you when I posted. I was quoting Richmond. ;)

Still, I do stand by my comment that if we want answers, it's better to ask directly than to speculate. Speculation always seems to take a negative turn.

Re: unicode ?

The fastest way is to write the html in a script and then set the htmltext of the field to the whole thing at once. If there are images involved it will still take slightly longer than if there are none, because the engine has to load the image and insert it, but at least it bypasses constant field ...

Re: Future of LC?

While not many folk hereabouts may feel the lack of a 2D Physics engine they should be fussed by LiveCode's failure to deliver on fund-raiser promises, and they should seriously consider whether they are prepared to "donate" more money next time the hat comes round. Before complaining it's wise to ...

Re: Moving Speed out of GPS data

If you use Google Fit, you could work magic too. :) Seriously, anything more than simple arithmetic is beyond me, but we have some brilliant math gurus in our community. There are several on the mailing list who may lurk here as well, and @-hh is no slouch either. Maybe he'll have ideas. I wouldn't ...

Re: Amazing prime! >^oo^<

Actually I used this site which, in real time, with a script, (I believe in javascript.. or php?), immediately gave me the result! https://primes.utm.edu/curios/includes/primetest.php How is this possible? If I were doing a web site like that I'd store a list of thousands of prime numbers and just ...

Re: Exporting standalone

I was just compiling an Android app today, I'm using LC 9.0.1, so I know that works. I think we need a Windows user to chime in, I've used up all my ideas. Wish I could tell you more. :(

Re: Exporting standalone

That should work. The only thing I can think of is to have you duplicate my setup, which doesn't include Studio. But since I'm on a Mac and you're on Windows, there may be slightly different ways of accessing the SDK. Look inside the Android SDK and see if you can find a file named "android" inside ...

Re: Moving Speed out of GPS data

I don't have a script, only an anecdote. During a recent hike, Google estimated my distance walked as 8.5 miles. I was going over some rugged terrain near the Mississippi River and had only actually walked the equivalent of a few city blocks. Looking at the tracking map later, Google showed that I h...

Re: Exporting standalone

What LC version? I think that's the only question I haven't asked yet.

Re: Exporting standalone

I'm running out of ideas. Did you completely delete the other Java package? Also, you may need to restart LC if you haven't already. On my setup I have the Android SDK installed (command line tools only , no Studio,) and Java 1.8.0_171 jdk. That's all it took to get a successful Android compile. I'd...

Re: handling raw keys on android

RawKeyDown works on supported desktops, mobile and server platforms, but how far any android app is going to work on Chrome will depend on how much of andoid's subsystem is supported and correctly implemented. That makes sense, I'd expect Chromebooks to support only those things that mobile Android...

Re: Exporting standalone

I just noticed that you don't have Java installed, or at least LC can't find it. You need to install Java 8.x. https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html There's more info here: http://lessons.livecode.com/m/2571/l/27385-how-do-i-become-an-android-developer-...

Re: Exporting standalone

You need the command line tools. I don't use Studio but I believe it has that option in a popdown menu. Did you download those?

Re: Exporting standalone

Where did you save the SDK on your computer? On my Mac the folder name is "android-sdk-macosx" and that's what I selected. If you are on Windows I assume the folder will be similarly named.

Also, did you download only the commandline tools, or did you download Android Studio?

Re: LiveCode Multi-Search

I see why the Resources List button wasn't updating, the created file is never closed. This fixes it: open file tFile put "LiveCode Super Site,http://livecodesupersite.com/" & return into tResourcesList put "LiveCode Cheat Sheets,https://livecode.com/resources/cheat-sheets/" & return after tResource...
