Re: Play sound file with local notification (Alarm app)

Did you ever get this working.
The play sound after the notification is triggered only works if the app is open and the banner has already been dismissed (I believe) .

Re: Play sound file with local notification

Has this been answered? I am using local push notifications to show banners reminding people to check my app based on a schedule they define. My original desire was to have the user also select a sound to accompany the banner... I've seen some apps do this. Unfortunately I have had zero luck with sy...

Re: Add pref for renaming behiors

bogs - As far as I know, the problem will only arise with behaviors and therefore only in LC8+. I love them and use them as a convenience when I have lots of controls that need to do exactly the same thing. I create a control and assign it a behavior from a dropdown menu that shows all the available...

Re: Add pref for renaming behiors

I agree. I don't want the team to be distracted from important things. I also think running into this issue will be a valuable learning experience for others as it has been for me. I posted simply because looking at the behavior name issue from a new user perspective seems like a real WTF moment.......

Re: Add pref for renaming behiors

This got way deeper than I expected really quickly.... I know there are lots of potential work arounds/fixes (this is Livecode after all). The key point for me is I now know that behaviors are not relative to the stack they inhabit which is counter to all I think about in terms of coding in LiveCode...

Add pref for renaming behiors

I just ran into the issue of behavior references not updating on stack rename. The discussion in the "Method to rename stack "(http://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=31136) thread in the "‹Getting Started with LiveCode - Experienced Developers" forum provided the work around I needed... scan...

RevVideo on Windows 7... ?

I'm trying to modify code from late 2016... a webcam based inspection tool.... Worked by capturing a still image from webcam using revInitializeVideoGrabber, etc. and analyzing.... I wanted to reuse some of the code in another tool and tweak the interfaces in the current tool. The2016 standalone sti...

Re: Swiping with native scroller?

Update.... Just to get some closure. I was never able to get a native scrolling field to reliably detect swipes the way I wanted. The layout of my screen does however, have enough "open space" so that users swiping from the edge of the screen (or in areas not covered by the native scroller) get the ...

Re: Swiping with native scroller?

Quick update: 1) Thanks for the touch code. I tend to do desktop only so forget about touch. Seems more "mobile" than mouseXXX though not sure why. 2) As long as the touch starts "outside" of the native scroller, things act as expected. This either means TouchEnd is working as expected or entering t...

mergPopActivity question

This was originally a post in the iOS deployment section. Moving it here since this is probably a better place. :D ----------------------- I was being naïve again I guess. I want users to be able to share an image from my app. I had assumed this would be easy using mergPopActivity to display the sta...

mergPopActivity question

I was being naïve again I guess. I want users to be able to share an image from my app. I had assumed this would be easy using mergPopActivity to display the standard share sheet with the pimage parameter pointed to an externally available image. So I included mergPopActivity in my latest build and ...

Swiping with native scroller?

I know this can't be this hard. I have a few cards with a single native scroller on each of them (iPhone 6 screen). I'd like to be able to have the user swipe between cards but can't get anything working. I've read through everything I can with old threads but....I haven't found anything that really...

Re: revVideoGrab for newer Windows webcams (UVC vs VFW)

Am back looking at this again. Am very confused @ DirectShow, etc. Has anyone connected to a modern digital microscope through LC on Windows? I'm left using LC to launch amcap.exe, having the operator "Capture the image" to a known directory, then opening the most recent image in that folder w/Livec...

Re: Error message in Excel when trying to paste from LC 8

Curious if this is being addressed. I'm having the same issue and behavior w/ LC Community 8.1 on Win 7?

Re: revVideoGrab for newer Windows webcams (UVC vs VFW)

Thanks for the input. I'm very limited in the toolset I can apply so Director is right out. I'm still working this issue but have a working solution. Just thought I'd share in case someone might be interested. I downloaded a windows app from the camera supplier's website. It allows me to capture bot...
