Re: What line is it?

The lineOffset function might be easier, but keep in mind that it will return only the first instance it finds unless you add the second "skip" parameter. Since you want the second item, search for space and the number. put lineOffset(space & tNum, fld x) into tLine That will give you the line numbe...

It's kind of long, but this lesson gives you all the steps:

Re: Test that JSON received is valid

I've used try!/catch around a JSONImport function and it works. No need for regex that way.

Re: Livecode 9 - black screen problem

What is the minimum version you've set in standalone settings? If it's old, try a newer one like Kit Kat or Lollipop.

@Jacque-
Hm, I think I almost understand that. I'm not sure I agree with it being that way, but it isn't like I'd be changing it either.
Better get used to it, it's been that way since 1987. :)

Re: Can't save stack issue

Maybe insert "answer the filename of this stack" before saving and see if anything changed behind your back.

Re: mouseDown cripples menuPick

But I still am trying to grok the difference between simply exiting a mouseDown handler and exiting all the way to the engine. Exiting a handler returns it to the queue where it continues along the message path. Exiting to top specifically exits the message path entirely, effectively killing the me...

Re: mouseDown cripples menuPick

I have given up on directional references. I now use "before" and "after". That accommodates any mental model. Personally I think of the path as a road from one location to another. I just recently learned that mouseUp is an artificially generated message, since the OS doesn't notify about it. Perha...

Re: Can't save stack issue

Did you move the stack in the Finder while it was open? It sounds like the filename is no longer accurate when it fails to save.

Re: User Interface Question

You could track the current field and use its location as the place to pop up the menu. When the user tabs into a field you'll get an openField message. Use that to get the name of the field and pop up the button at the location of that field. This way the mouse isn't involved and the target is spec...

Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

You know, looking at my example script I see that I omitted the URL keyword. Did it work as written? It should have been:

put url ("binfile:" & tSourcePath) into url ("binfile:" & tDestPath)

We all have blackouts occasionally I guess. You can't trust anyone these days. :)

Re: Open a LC document using a standalone

Bravo! So glad you got it working. When you're first starting there's a lot to learn, but soon things will feel commonplace. The "eureka" moment at the end of a long struggle can be a giddy reward though. One advantage of written explanations is that others who follow can find answers. But I do unde...

Re: Livecode 9 - black screen problem

I'm not sure there is a solution. Android 5 is pretty old, and soon Google Play won't even accept apps that target older versions. When I first saw this issue it was way back in Android 2.2 and turning off all the radios fixed it ( no wifi, GPS, Bluetooth, etc.) But you can't very well expect your u...
