Re: Problem with mobile scroller

Okay, so that's not it. Anoather thing may be that the scroller isn't aligned with the LC field. When I create a new scroller I set the scroll of the LC field to zero, create the scroller, and then adjust both scrolls if necessary. If that's not it then I'm out of ideas.

Re: Problem with mobile scroller

I haven't actually looked at the stack, but a common problem is that scrollers aren't deleted when leaving the card. Native controls stay on top of everything, they aren't linked to a single card or control, so it's a good idea to destroy them on closecard and recreate them on preopencard or opencar...

Re: Virtual keyboard issue on 9.0.2-rc-1

We get no messages when an app goes to the background and later resumes, so this is a little tricky. As a guess, try the redraw trick in a keyboardDeactivated handler and see if that helps.

Please do file a bug report, it will help us all.

Re: Server loop avoidance.

I agree with Craig, LC has the feature you need built in, so there's no reason to make it more complex. If you do decide to use a second app, you'll have the same problem. The wait command is blocking and can affect the rest of the server as well, so you'd need to use "send" there too. Rule of thumb...

Re: Docset Reader now on LiveCode Share

BTW, have you considered fullscreenmode for mobile? It takes away a lot of the pain. You can change the layout on orientationChanged. If you're doing pixel placement on mobile instead, Andre discovered that the screenrect won't report correctly until the first card is drawn (maybe you saw that on th...

Re: Docset Reader now on LiveCode Share

I saw your question on the mailing list but wasn't sure why you'd need to track the browser scroll. Maybe the javascript is causing the crash, you could leave it out and see what happens. I don't mind rescrolling if I change orientations.

LOL! Until this is over, I suggest you pull Marvin's batteries and lock yourself in your room. :)

Re: Docset Reader now on LiveCode Share

Works great on the desktop on Mac. I like where this is going. Even though you told us not to compile it yet, I just wanted to see how it looks on Android. There were some execution issues of course but I'll see how it does later. Mainly I was interested in the appearance, so thought I'd mention tha...

Re: Docset Reader now on LiveCode Share

Huh, on both OSX and Win testing here, it opened each time very quickly, but I think we're talking about two different parts of it. Okay, unless someone else has the same problem, it's starting to look like there is something unique to my system that's interfering. So far I haven't heard anyone els...

Re: Unexpected behaviour

Yes, you understand it right. LC has the ability to send a command at intervals you specify, which is the "external" event you mentioned, but it isn't really external like a user action, it's triggered by the script itself. You start the process by calling the handler once, which in the example is d...

Re: Unexpected behaviour

Dunbar's comment about exiting a loop is correct but I wasn't thinking about exits, more about memory depletion. Every time through the loop, the handler may (usually?) retain some amount of RAM. After a period of time memory will be exhausted and the app will crash. I learned this 30 years ago when...
