Re: Livecode still way too slow....

@Fourth Didn't use lockscreens as the main thing that bothered me was the 6.7/6.5 disparity (which activated my spidey senses). I did test a bit with lockscreen yesterday too, but it was good that I didn't too much since that resulted in me fixing and improving the 2 tests. The results of running ag...

Re: Livecode still way too slow....

It's adequately necro for the necro minded and I've learned better than to taunt them :) If you consider the posts in this thread, then the impression you'd (I did) get is that tjframe is semi-delusional and/or it's the fault of his hardware and there is no significant performance dips between versi...

CHECK https://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=28591&p=173812#p173812 FOR UPDATED/IMPROVED DATA Sorry for the necro, but the "slowness" issue popped up for me again (this was also the #1 google result so felt this could be the place to post the following).

Re: Why do so few schools try LiveCode...?

Hi, From personal experience, the single biggest obstacle for my nephews (4 and 6) has been English and while they both can read and write in their native language, adding the complexities of programming on top of a new language has been a bit too much of a hurdle to over come. I think this is a mi...

Re: Why do so few schools try LiveCode...?

While the usefulness (from the ease of employment pov) is pretty much a one punch wreckage for LC, I think LC could actually fill a major gap in programming and that's providing a starting point for non-english speaking children. From personal experience, the single biggest obstacle for my nephews (...

App icon on MacOS

Normally I only make stuff for Windows/Android, but this time I have had a need for a mac version and for some reason, for the life of me I can't find any information on how to make app icons for mac apps. I assume the icons are handled somehow differently on MacOS which also would the reason for wh...

Re: Unusual field/backspaceKey behavior

Yup, I'm guessing (based on gut feels) that it has something to do with how the non-native fields pass information to the keyboard or how the soft keyboard logics pass their 'info' to the fields. Since it seems like the non-native fields create a new "variable" for their strings every time it get's ...

Re: Unusual field/backspaceKey behavior

That's what I've tried as well, but that's fairly inconsistent also. With the updated google keyboard (gboard nowadays apparently) the above behavior persists on all of my livecode android projects. If I uninstall all the updates from the gboard, I get completely normal behavior in a blank + 2 field...

Unusual field/backspaceKey behavior

I've been messing with android stuff for a good long while now and currently working on another android project and again stumbled upon the same problem. In short, the backspaceKey/message doesn't consistently trigger with non-native fields. Tried on multiple different livecode versions getting the ...

Re: png images with white

This definitely isn't the ideal solution, but it could work okayish (ultra slow with larger images). Basically just a bandage fix. on mouseUp lock screen put "255,255,255" into transparentColor answer file "Select the image" put it into fileDir if (the result = "Cancel") then set the name of me to "...

Re: Analyzing Data?

I can't currently see any special advantage of using the hsv color model here. Do you have advantages in mind if one tries to categorize the used colors? The benefit was in the ease of use with dynamic colors, but your solution is way more efficient (like 1000 times faster?) than mine was so even i...

Yup, goofed up the rgbtohsv a bit, but fixed it in the first post now so future visitors won't have to struggle with it. Here's a complete solution though since I felt a bit bad for messing up :) on mouseUp answer Analyze("image") end mouseUp function Analyze targetImage //item 1 = the name, item 2 ...

Re: Analyzing Data?

I'm assuming your goal is to get more than just the 3 base colors so that means you'll have to get the hsv (hue, saturation and value) from it and then according to hue (probably enough unless you have like red, light red, dark red etc) match the color. So first off, you'll need to get the rgb value...

Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 -> Android test installation issues

Struggled with this for the day so figured I'd post here in case someone else is 'working' with the same tablet and has similar problems. So, using Lenovo Yoga Tablet 3 (presumably other lenovo phones and tablets as well), I started first getting "Host service" issues when trying to deploy using the...
