Re: Set the gradient of a graphic

Yes. You need to specify the properties using an array, "fillGradient" or "strokeGradient" in the Dictionary explains what each array element relates to. A good way to understand this would be to set the fillGradient of your graphic using the property inspector and then examine the array by using a ...

Re: Focus on a button?

AFAIK the only button that can receive focus on a Mac is the "Default" button (i.e. the Blue button in the tool palette). Often used in dialogue boxes where you typically don't need to click the button, just hit "Return" on the keyboard.

Re: Unexpected issue with disabled graphics style

I'm seeing this effect all the way back to LiveCode 5.5.5, so I'm guessing there is a reason for it, but I'm not too sure what that is! In earlier versions of LC, the text is greyed out when the graphic is disabled, so I can only guess that the shadow effect was to keep the text readable at small si...

Re: Double title bars on Mac

First, apologies for the long post, but I said that I would report back, so here goes. If you don't use a Mac and/or are no longer interested in the double Tab Bar issue, then please feel free to skip this post, but I hope this helps to clarify the issue for some people. The Dock Preference "Prefer ...

Re: Double title bars on Mac

Anyone here know the bug number or title offhand? Panos posted it earlier in this thread: https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=21190 For anybody struggling with this, the workaround that I posted earlier does work, but if you use multiple versions of LC you will need to define the shortcut ...

Re: Code editor window

Unfortunately, LC does tie itself in knots occasionally, and the only way around this is to delete the preference files. Be aware, this will completely re-set LiveCode back to the default settings, but it should clear the issues that you have; Quit LiveCode Go to the Mac Finder, in the Finder Menuba...

Re: Double title bars on Mac

This is one I had a lot of trouble with, but then found a simple way out of it! The Menu command to hide the Tab Bar does show up very occasionally, but most of the time it is hidden, so I added a shortcut in the macOS Keyboard Preferences, now if I add the Tab Bar by mistake I can just type my cust...

You will have, but it may be hidden. Sorry I should have thought of that.

Pleased you have it working now. :-)

Re: Code editor window

Not too sure if this will work, but you could try putting this into the Message Box and hit enter: send "actionResizeStack, true" to card "main" of stack "revNewScriptEditor 1" As far as I can see, it should force the window to resize all of the panes properly. Make sure the Script Editor window is ...

Re: Basics of IOs deployment

If you go to the LiveCode Help Menu and choose "Release Notes", on page 6 of that document you will see that you need Xcode 11.4. Your Xcode 11.5 is too new, but you can download Xcode 11.4 from the Apple Developer site once you have a developer account, you may also need to download the appropriate...

Re: Best or easiest way to make a vertical scrolling area with fields and buttons

You could try setting the stack scaleFactor to something like "0.75", then you can temporarily increase the depth of your stack and group for editing. Reset the size of the group and stack before setting the scaleFactor back to 1. It does work pretty well, but be prepared for some small editing anom...

Re: Can Livecode Create Menubar Apps?

Hi Craig,

macStatusMenuNames() is in the Mac Status Menu Library supplied in the latest LC9.5.0. The version I have is Build 15503 which appears to be the most up-to-date "stable" version of LC.

HTH :)

Re: Can Livecode Create Menubar Apps?

I was told, subsequently that a menu 'thing' had been created: but there was NO sign of it anywhere. Could it be because you didn't populate the menu? I'm not too sure! Anyway, I had a play and it seems to work fine, so I've added a sample stack for the benefit of everyone here. Requires minimum LC...

Sorry, but I'm really busy for a few days, we're fighting a forrest fire close by right now, I'm just on a short break, but I will take another look when we've finished. Just a quick thought in the meantime I noticed that the reference to " " is an ascii code for TAB, I wonder if that's causing s...
