Re: Learn number bases

The point is that not only kids but also people like you learn to use number bases. Just try to write and read for example the time in base 60.
If you ask for the purpose of using number bases, it's like using a foreign language (for you: basic math).

Re: Learn number bases

I cannot change the dead links of the forum-post in the original post of this thread. So let me explain more here.

Re: Community widgets

Richard, you are often trying to harmonize and integrate. A good characteristic trait. In my case I also got the feeling that I've done a lot in LCB (widgets) and HTML5 (standalones). And I concluded from that, LC could also do something for me to support this, very seldom, from time to time. Now lo...

Re: Community widgets

I am deeply disappointed. I reported several bugs and feature requests related to LCB since 2016. Now I decided moreover, based on recent answers of the CTO, to stop any bug reporting (or requesting enhancements). That is: I don't think it makes any sense to do bug reporting (or requesting enhanceme...

TMHO, there is no progress with LC's HTML5 platform ("web apps") since a long time.
So I stopped making new HTML5 standalones.

Re: Pass arguments to a process

Sorry my fault. The quotes are the culprit. This should work: put "/Applications/VLCdotapp/Contents/MacOS/VLC '" & tFilePath & "'" & \ " --rate=1 --video-filter=scene -Idummy --vout=dummy --aout=dummy" & \ " --start-time=10 --stop-time=11 --scene-format=png --scene-ratio=24" & \ " --scene-prefix=sna...

Re: Pass arguments to a process

quote & "/Applications..." & quote results in the invalid string ""/Applications..."". But this should work: put "/Applications/VLCdotapp/Contents/MacOS/VLC '" & tFilePath & "'" & \ " --rate=1 --video-filter=scene -Idummy --vout=dummy --aout=dummy" & \ " --start-time=10 --stop-time=11 --scene-format...

Re: Display distant image in a graphic object?

@richmond62. "What particular advantage would there be displaying a distant image inside a graphic object over displaying it inside an image?" The graphic clips the image. Try that with an oval graphic and an appropriately scaled image. @zax. Your question is (implicitly) twofold: 1. Display: As you...

Re: Pass arguments to a process

I'll try this and let you know how I make out. BTW how do you post to this forum without it complaining about external URls and links regarding the VLCdotapp?
You need more than 10 posts for that. This should really included in the FAQs

Re: Pass arguments to a process

(This is not related to the OP's question.) I haven't tried that reading from stdin, but as vlc can stream I think it is possible. Usually you can also use sockets instead of stdin. I only use regularly the web interface of vlc for camera-streaming. Who is interested to work with vlc as cli could st...

Re: Pass arguments to a process

The following is generally valid on MacOS and probably on Windows and linux too. As long as you use full pathes everything that works in terminal will work with LC's shell: Terminal: /Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/VLC <args> LC: put shell("/Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/VLC <args>") or u...

Re: ask file command issue

The files are all greyed out If have it not for all but *sometimes* for some of the files here on Mac (since my switch to MacOS 10.15). But I can click/select the greyed out ones that are of correct type. Did you already try that? Read also points (A) and (B) here (by Mark Waddingham): http://lists...

Re: ask file command issue

@answer file : This is a rather old problem with MacOS since 10.12 or so. Originally both prompt and title were removed by the OS. This was at least partially resolved by LC to show always the prompt (not in title). Just try on newer MacOS: on mouseUp put "Hello there" into p1 put "HELLO and GOODBY...

Re: Building styledText or htmlText from scratch to colorize text

This is a beautiful demo of a "usual" scenario that shows that using htmlText is pretty fast (and here faster than styledText). Anyway I can't understand the general hyping up of (the here slower) styledText as this is for most people hard to handle without the help of the "real stars" (team members...
