Re: Android native Controls

HI.
Did you ever find a way to call the media scanner from within live code? I'd like to do that too...

Thanks.

Saving user data

Hi. Is there a best practice for recording user data in an android app? My concern is that users are able to quit the app at any point (I assume there is no way to disable the back/pause/quit buttons on the screen?). If I write to a file frequently, do I run the risk of having the app quit with the ...

Re: help with drag and drop

I guess I was looking for a way to detect collisions without iterating through all the possible collision targets (buttons). Given your response I'm assuming that's just the way to do it. Because I want to check whether the drawn line touches a button, I iterate through all the buttons using the "in...

Re: help with drag and drop

Thanks for the feedback. I don't know why I like the "while the mouse is down" loop better. Maybe its the recursion feels kind of creepy ;-) All the issues you mention about multiple lines etc. are things to deal with. The reason I looked to drag and drop is I'm trying to track collisions. I don't w...

Re: help with drag and drop

Thanks for the code. The "while the mouse is down" strategy works well. I'm still curious about the drag and drop idea. I like the idea of the "target" of the drag and drop getting a message when it get the line. The whole drag and drop is mysterious, though...I don't understand how you start one, e...

help with drag and drop

Hi, Could someone point me to a place I could learn how to set up drag-and-drop? I'd like to have a user click on a button, drag to draw a line, and then "drop" when that line contacts another button. (draw a line connecting buttons) I think I could do this with mousemove messages to the line, but i...

mobilepickphoto blacks screen

Hello, I am having some trouble with the mobilepickphoto in Android. When the camera closes (after I accept a picture), returning to the Livecode stack, the entire screen is black. I've tried locking and unlocking the screen, but that doesn't bring things back. If I touch where a button is on the ca...

Re: updated guide for starting server on mac (el capitan)?

The text of the error is:
Apache couldn't be started. Please check your MAMP installation and configuration

I assume I broke something in the configuration file.

Re: Runs super slowly

Thanks for the reply. Locking the screen did help considerably, but there's still a pretty strong lag. In your list of slow-down-factors, Safari gets 3, does that mean it is the fastest? I was testing with Safari. I hope it doesn't get slower than that. Also, preloading into memory means selecting "...

Runs super slowly

I've tried my first html5 standalone, and I find it runs achingly slowly. All it does is toggle which images in a group are visible. I've pasted some of the code (of a button) below. The images switch very slowly and I get a spinning beachball between redraws (on an iMac) I've only tested opening th...

Re: Best practice for getting a window on top

oops. looks like I didn't attach the stack to the previous post. I can't attach a .livecode file? and when I zip it I get told it exceeds the 256 kb limit. so much for attachments.
