Measuring Distance & Length of a Graphic

I am trying to figure out how to measure the length in pixels of an arbitrary line graphic. I know that if the graphic has only two points I could do some math with the pythagorean theorem to figure out the length of the line, but I would like for my user to be able to create a path of several point...

Re: Text wrap in native ios text field

LiveCode devs waiting for multi-line text... it's just as long and silly as iOS users waiting for cut-and-paste.
Maybe soon.

Non-Stack Files Missing

Is anyone having difficulties wit non-stack files not being included in the built application? I've got my resource folders selected under the "Copy Files" tab, but when I build my application for Mac they are not included. Digging into the .app bundle I can find the folders, but they are empty. If ...

Re: Digital Compass and iOS

I managed to get everything to dump to a bunch of text fields.
Very heavily based on the examples in the documentation, with some added code for the fields and compass.
It worked on my iPhone 3GS. Updated every few feet as I went for a walk.

Hope this helps.

Re: Option Menu and modal pickwheel

I'm cheating a little on this...
I made option menus, then pushed them off to the side so they are not visible. The user then clicks on a button, which sends a "click" to the menu. After the user makes a selection the label of the button is updated.
Cheating? Yes.
Easy? Yes.

Second this. It isn't clearly spelled out in the documentation, but the app loader only works with .zip files.

Re: eMagazine created with LiveCode submitted to Apple

Lovely work. I'm impressed with the quick load times between pages. Did that require a lot of optimization?

Re: SQLite on iOS database issues

Thanks Danny. I don't think that will work for this application, but I will certainly add it to my bag of tricks.
Still hoping someone out there has figured out the black magic of mobile SQL...

SQLite on iOS database issues

I'm trying to save data to an SQLite database on one card, then on another card retrieve this information and display it in reverse entry order. Everything is working great on the desktop, but on iOS I get one of two problems: 1) If I attempt to create the database in the specialfolderpath("document...

Re: LiveCode 4.6 released

I had a thought the other day... On one hand it is frustrating to come up against limitations and bugs (especially iPad apps running slow now), but at the same time... I am still a beginner programmer (even after 2-3 years, since it's just a hobby) and in many ways it's nice to have the platform gro...

Ouch, very different from how I'm used to thinking about LiveCode.
Still, thanks very much for this find. :-)

Re: Deploying Without App Store

I'm not sure that Apple permits exactly this type of distribution...
The enterprise program (http://developer.apple.com/programs/ios/enterprise/) might be sort of what you want... but otherwise I don't think you can do anything like what you describe without jailbreaking.

Slow?

Is anyone else having issues with speed on the iPad?
My application is loading only 5 images (about 3k each) and a text field on each card, but it is taking at least 8 seconds to switch between cards.
