Re: Children's Education App for Measuring with a Ruler

@Richmond. It is not hard to add ticks on the line (see attachment). My proposal is to leave them out: How do you tell a child who can count integers only to set a length of sqrt(2)? Setting integers lengths doesn't usually end in a valid point (if not vertical or horizontal), even if you go down to...

MaxV is simply an extremist in *both*

• his criticism of LiveCode.

Re: Children's Education App for Measuring with a Ruler

Greg, this is interesting and I tried to create a stack that is *as simple as possible* to have the tasks you described. Here is a stack that uses only graphics (polygons and ovals) and will run down to LC 5.5 (save as stackfileversion 5.5 for that). Nothing else needed. This "ruler" covers, TMHO, t...

Re: Setting textSize in the clipboardData

With LC 8 use the fullClipboardData["RTF"]:

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
  lock the clipboard
  set the fullClipboardData to empty
  set the fullClipboardData["RTF"] to the rtfText of fld 1
  unlock the clipboard
end mouseUp
Then paste into TextEdit, Pages, OpenOffice, Word or whatever.

Re: Children's Education App for Measuring with a Ruler

Interesting problem. We need more information. 1. Which OS? Which LC version? 2. What means "on the screen": A deliberate desktop image or the stack window? 3. What is the "unit" of the ruler? From a math point of view, it would be more interesting to explain the concept of a vector (angle and lengt...

Re: Deprecation of numToChar()

No.

NumToCodePoint is the replacement for numToChar when using Unicode text (if really needed, for example with the famous DevaWriter). For UTF-8 input LC 8/9 usually doesn't require any transformations.

[And for images we can use numToByte instead.]

Re: Deprecation of numToChar()

Possibly the problem is not numToChar but that your input text encoding changed.

If you switched to UTF-8 then your high bit (> 127) chars may have now a different code.

Why don't you simply use a 'direct' char replacement (replace "‘" with "'" etc.)?

Re: FreeLibs for LiveCode

From 8.0 to 8.2 and 9.0.0-dp1 to 9.0.0-dp10 we have at about 5 different module formats. Just open a LC 8 version and look at your 'unsupported' library module. You have to deinstall the currently installed 'unsupported' module and recompile the lcb file. Hopefully your code also works there. Thats ...

Re: FreeLibs for LiveCode

This is really fine. Especially the notification handlers will be useful for many people.

You could think about adding a LC 8 version for people who are not using LCB (and don't know how to recompile by themselves)?

I look forward to a cross-platform version!

Color chooser for LC 6/7/8/9 on MacOS 10.13 [enhanced version]

Recently, there were several neat stacks on "Sample Stacks" that use LC 8/9 (a newer stackfileversion) and would be also useful on LC 6/7. The main reason for that, if not using widgets, was probably that on MacOS 10.13, using LC 6/7, closing the colorChooser ("answer color") **CRASHES** LiveCode im...
