Re: Help Us Take LiveCode Open Source

I know this is an old thread, but I am wondering if any more consideration was given to this idea? "We are looking at providing a very simple OSS license specifically for free, non-profit, not ad supported, non-promotional open source apps in the Mac/iOS app store. We'll probably go down the route o...

Re: Build notes?

We are working on instructions (and also the build process) - however, getting an IDE engine to run with the IDE from Xcode is straight-forward. Thanks, Mark, and I should have mentioned I saw that note in another thread here, but I was interested in building a standalone app bundle which wasn't co...

Build notes?

Hi, I see the contribution page still doesn't have any hints on compiling, so I hope asking here is not out of bounds. And maybe it is because I am going outside of the "engine" and into IDE territory I think... But I would like to be able to build from the source and understand the parts before dig...

Re: Xcode 3.2.6

Hmmm - we'll see if we can get a script together that will extract SDKs from an Xcode DMG... I downloaded the XCode 4.3.3 disk image, mounted it, and just looked inside the XCode.app package.... XCode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/MacOSX.platform/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.6.sdk I copied that into ...

Re: systems requirement for livecode open source?

I'm glad you think I can do comic irony. Fred, In retrospect I see that what I wrote could be insulting, and if I offended you I am sorry. I wasn't trying to criticize you, you did provide where the information was, I just was making an observation about the irony of the situation, not intimating t...

Re: systems requirement for livecode open source?

The Release Notes are found under the Help menu on the toolbar. There is some huge comic irony in telling someone who is looking for the system requirements to install software to look in the help menu of an installed copy of said software. LoL I couldn't find them online either, so how would know ...

Re: systems requirement for livecode open source?

While not strictly "system requirements", I was a bit surprised to see you still have to register/activate the community edition of Livecode. I'm not sure that is necessarily a problem, just a little surprise that is all. Of course, building your own executable from the source code would remove that...

Re: Help Us Take LiveCode Open Source

What is the difference between the Open Source version and the $99.00 copy of LiveCode that I purchased? For a definitive answer, check out the FAQ on the Community Project page: http://www.runrev.com/products/Open-Source/FAQs However, the shortest answer is that if you publicly distribute or sell ...

Re: Character encoding issue

Try something like:

set the htmlText of field "fieldname" to utfdecode( utfencode( yourTextVar, "UTF8" ) )

UGH: That's what I get for going my bad memory... uniDecode( uniEncode( yourTextVar, "UTF8" ) )

I had UTF on the brain. :)

I think that worked for me, except on Android for some reason.

Re: setting up mobile support

I downloaded that archive from the Android dev site, I extracted mine into /Developer/android-sdk-macosx. The file I downloaded was "android-sdk_r21.1-macosx.zip" and this directory was straight out of that file. I did, though, have to first go into the Terminal application, change into that directo...

if the image is locate locally, the following will populate the image object within a datagrid put "images/" & "colors.jpg" into theDataA[1]["ImageURL"] but I am working with the binary image data from a db.

Re: setting up mobile support

If you are using XCode 4.6 (and I assume 4.6.1 that was just released) then you have to be running LiveCode 5.5.4. When I downloaded the trial it was 5.5.3 and I had to search to find the 5.5.4 installer: http://www.runrev.com/downloads/livecode/5_5_4/LiveCodeInstaller-5_5_4-Mac.dmg For Android, the...
