Re: No way to edit a script !

Can you select the object with the edit tool? If so, can you open the script if you right-click it and use the popup menu?

Re: Old standalones work, IDE versions don't

Immediately after an answer command, try adding these lines to the handler:

Code: Select all

toplevel the owner of me
set the defaultstack to the owner of me
This again assumes the script is in the card. If you can post a relevant handler that includes an answer command, we might spot something.

Re: Furniture

It seems to be working here. My dock is on the side, and the screenMouseLoc shows the same width as the working screenrect shows. Put "the screenMouseLoc" into the message box, carefully align your mouse with the top of the dock and then hit the return key. See how that compares to the figures in th...

Re: Furniture

The "effective" modifier was added primarily for mobile to accommodate the situation where the keyboard is displayed. In that case the working screenrect and the effective working screenrect will be different. I assume there could be cases on desktop where this would also apply though I can't think ...

Re: Setting the textFont of a DG - Android

I won't mention my typo
I don't mention mine either. :) On the other hand, I had an embarrassing episode recently with a broken appliance. I was about to call a repairman when I noticed, just in time, it wasn't plugged in.

We all have our days.

Re: Setting the textFont of a DG - Android

My first thought is that the font isn't available for some reason. Put a temporary line into the handler and see if the font is listed:

Code: Select all

answer the fontnames

Re: how to get to the top of a table field

It never happens. The process goes back to the beginning and continues... It works differently than finding text limited to a designated field. So it does. I don't think it always did that. I would like to be able to start searching from the top of the list For that case, use this: find empty find ...

Re: how to get to the top of a table field

In LC the final result should be the same "not found", regardless of the navigation.

Re: Old standalones work, IDE versions don't

It's not just the dynamic path, any "go" command is supposed to update the defaultstack. The exceptions depend on the mode of the target stack.

Re: Old standalones work, IDE versions don't

I'm not sure that's much different from just "get the defaultstack". Or for a boolean, maybe "get the defaultstack is the topstack".

Re: how to get to the top of a table field

It's not a bug, it's by design. If you check the result you'll see that the find command reports "not found" after the last successful search. That's how you know you've found every instance. Then it resets.

Go to advanced search
