Re: Tablet user view style - Any way to get Better looking ? P/L

I'm sure you would enjoy the lessons, some of them are very good practical examples. 👍 To remove a colour already applied to a control, go to the Property Inspector, Colors tab and Right Click on the backgroundColor box, so instead of choosing a colour this will bring up a menu to reset the colour t...

Re: Tablet user view style - Any way to get Better looking ? P/L

Please don't take this the wrong way, but I do get the impression that there are quite a few basic LiveCode programming concepts that you don't seem to understand, it appears to me that you are trying to dive in and make an application without first learning about the way LiveCode works. In other wo...

Re: Tablet user view style - Any way to get Better looking ? P/L

Set the Loc of Widget 1 of me to the loc of me 10,A That will just confuse the engine, I'll try to explain. We'll break this command down to 3 parts: Part 1 - [Set the Loc of Widget 1 of me] - tells the engine we want to move Widget 1 Part 2 - [to the loc of me] - tells the engine the coordinates f...

Re: Tablet user view style - Any way to get Better looking ? P/L

(could the LOC function be part of the Problem?) :idea: :idea: :idea: Yes definitely, that's what I said in the first reply I made. 8) See the code example both I and Richard supplied, they should help. The loc of an object has two parameters, for the X and Y coordinates, your code tries to move th...

Re: Tablet user view style - Any way to get Better looking ? P/L

That does sound very strange, I tried a search of the LiveCode Quality Centre and couldn't find anything relating to this kind of behaviour. LiveCode shouldn't Freeze or Crash on such a basic syntax error and I'm sure the LC team would be interested in fixing this problem if they can replicate it. I...

Re: Tablet user view style - Any way to get Better looking ? P/L

Are you sure the problem is LC "Freezing" and not just the Script Editor going into Debugging Mode and stopping to display the error? Sorry I don't use Windows, but on a Mac your code: set the loc of widget 1 to the loc of me - 100 Gives the error: "execution error at line 2 (Operators -: error in l...

Re: coding for ARDUINO

If you do a search for Arduino on these forums you'll find quite a few topics for this. I made a small LC standalone to control my Mitsubishi heat pump that runs on RPi and sends signals through an Arduino, there may have been better ways to do this, but it works pretty well for me. Some of the info...

Re: Stack to copy tabbed text and paste as a table in Word

And another option that may be more compatible with MS apps.

I should also point out that this is only compatible with LC8.x.x or later.

Stack to copy tabbed text and paste as a table in Word

Posted in answer to a request on the LC user list… The attached stack is to demonstrate copying some tabbed text from a field in LiveCode and then pasting it into a word type document where it should result in a table being pasted. The script of the Copy button relies heavily on the custom propertie...

Re: locate language app

Re: Does Browser widget make a good browser?

Again, I'm speaking from ignorance here, so forgive me PBH, but couldn't you just use built in commands to do that? uploading to ftp has been around forever, and I remember recently reading something about using dropbox libraries as well (not from the browser widget, or maybe it was ?) elsewhere on...

Re: Does Browser widget make a good browser?

You should also check the LiveCode QCC and search for "Browser Widget", you'll find a list of the current problems with the Browser Widget. The show stopper for me was not being able to use it to upload a file to a website, e.g. Dropbox or anything similar, I reported Bug 17928 http://quality.liveco...
