Re: Restore decent looking controls?

I wouldn't mind retreating, say, 18 months or so... Anyway, if the stack is just for you then none of that matters. Make the buttons any way you want. :)

Re: Restore decent looking controls?

These buttons are drawn by the OS, and anyone who uses that OS will not be surprised by the appearance. In fact, if you really do want the button to act as a default (respond to the return key) then you'll confuse users if the button doesn't look like the standard. If you were just using the default...

Re: Cannot enter data in field

Does the stack have any frontscripts? Are there any controls, hidden or not, either over or under the field? Is it in a group?

Do a script search for "traversalon" and see if you get any hits.

Re: Restore decent looking controls?

Wouldn't it be easier to just turn off the Default property on the buttons?

Re: Delete Card in LC 9 problem

Your way is good too. I suspect the IDE is trying to make things "easier" for us by managing running scripts itself. The IDE uses frontscripts, which intercept messages before your own scripts get them.

Re: IOS Deployment -- Lots of questions!

A LC IOS app is, by definition, a standalone. Right? That's right. A standalone cannot “self-modify”; in other words, you can not input (or save only?) new data into it. (When you re-launch the app, it will be in the same, previous, original state.) Right? You can input or change anything, but it w...

Re: Delete Card in LC 9 problem

If you think the clock is the problem, remove it before deleting the card. I assume it's placed on every card, so something like this:

Code: Select all

remove group "clock" from this card
delete this card

Re: Play (audioClip) delay / hang

If you use a player you can preload it with the "prepare" command. It was introduced to prevent delays.

Re: Stop user pressing Enter in entry field

Alternately, size the height of the field to hold only one line and set the autotab of the field to true in the property inspector.

Re: Having an issue using replace and Item number

That's actually a good way to do it, since some early benchmarking a while back showed that creating a new list is faster than modifying the old one. It's probably still true.

Re: Cannot enter data in field

I didn't actually watch the video since I understand the problem, but the issue is more related to the stack scripts or structure. Can you post your stack, or a short example stack that demonstrates the problem?

Re: Using a Group to display images

I played with your example a bit. You're right, the boundingRect isn't the answer, so set that back to empty. The yellow graphic needs to be much taller than the group itself, and both the graphic and the group have lockLoc set to true. I put this into one of the buttons. It only handles vertical dr...

Re: Use of layers in groups of groups - some observations

When you edit a group, LC creates a temporary card in memory and copies the controls to it. That's why the layering changes; those controls are the only ones on the "card". If you refresh the app overview, it will show the same altered layering order during editing. (Right-click anywhere in the righ...
