No, I did not install the build tools. Do I need them too?
Yup. They are what LC uses to...build. :) Install the latest version and if that doesn't work, install the next-to-latest version. I can't remember which one is required.

Re: Could not encode class bundle

Did you also install the build tools?

Re: LiveCode Marketing Suggestions

The list posting is fully automated. I assume posts to other places could do similarly. Then no one has to worry about it. Maybe you know how, Richard? I don't.

Re: LiveCode Marketing Suggestions

LC posts a weekly summary of activity to the mailing list. I'd think it would be easy to cross-post all or part of it to social media, at least the section on "interesting conversations", which may even draw readers in farther.

Re: Printing to pdf issue

Back in the olden days, the first thing recommended for printing problems was to update the printer driver. Since this is only happening on one system, that's what I'd try first. If there isn't a newer driver, trying a different printer, if possible, may help narrow down the issue.

Re: Search Error Message

Palettes didn't used to gain focus unless you clicked on them, so the original lesson probably worked when it was written. I'm not sure if the new behavior is intentional or a bug. (I didn't actually try to test it.)

Max, do you mind if I throw this up on github?
For myself, I have no objections. I have frequently wanted to throw up on github.

Re: Play sound file with local notification

It's a system setting, the user has to turn it on. On Android notifications can be granular down to the individual app, I'm not sure about iOS.

Re: Privat Android Launcher

Launchers require things that would be difficult to do in LiveCode. It might be partly doable but I think it would be easier in Android's native Java. Android apps are limited to their own sandbox and I'm not sure you can even get a list of all the user's installed apps. Normally I'd use shell calls...

Re: Another way of assessing LiveCode

It's all about backward compatibility. I was just commissioned to update a stack I wrote ten years ago. I couldn't open it in LC 9 due to file format changes, so I opened it in LC 6. It ran fine. After saving it there I could open it in LC 9 and it ran fine there too. The LC team, Mark in particular...

Re: Hexagons and stuff

What is wrong with this line? if (rect pLeft,pTop,pLeft+pWidth,pTop+pWidth of this card) is empty then It doesn't make any sense and won't parse. Only containers (usually variables) can be empty. This passes a reserved word and a series of unnecessary variables. What's the goal? If the imported ima...

Re: FATAL EXCEPTION:android.content.res.Resources$NotFoundException

There was a warning somewhere that LC didn't work with the latest build tools. If you still get the error, try installing the previous version of the tools.

Re: FATAL EXCEPTION:android.content.res.Resources$NotFoundException

Try deleting the LiveCode preferences file here: ./Users/YourName/AppData/Roaming/RunRev/preferences That may allow the community edition to launch. Since the original error relates to Android resources, I wonder if you have installed all the required files. You need the build tools and the files fo...

Re: Another way of assessing LiveCode

Okay Fishface, I laughed. :)

If it helps, I went through the same agony during my brief and abbreviated experiment with C. My new rule is that any language that relies on excessive punctuation should be shunned.
