Re: Identifying occurences of specified text in one substack and report to another substack

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...

Re: Identifying occurences of specified text in one substack and report to another substack

I have downloaded the app, but it's way too complex for me to diagnose. My test was a little too simple I believe, now I realise that you stack Parsings holds a background group, which I didn’t realise at first, so the new card line does work OK. Have you renamed the variable "start" as was suggeste...

Re: Identifying occurences of specified text in one substack and report to another substack

This was pretty simple to debug, I just recreated a small stack with all the objects listed in your sample and run it, it returned the error: button "Button_A": execution error at line 31 (Chunk: no such object), char 1 Note button "Button_A" was just what I called the button that held the script. T...

Re: How to communicate across devices? Use a database?

Not sure if it’s what you are looking for, but https://livecloud.io sounds like it could fit this type of app and it has the advantage that it is built for LiveCode.

Re: download a lot of .png files

I was surprised that exporting an image changes its resolution ( from 300 dpi to 72 dpi) like export snapshot. Is it what is expected ? Using put url tFileS into url("binfile:" tFileD) keeps resolution to 300 dpi I would think it is expected, when you use export as PNG for example, LC is writing th...

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...
