Re: Downloading pdfs

Ok, seems the server is funky in the way it's handling the pdfs. When you go to https://websever.com/1 or https://websever.com/1.pdf in a browser, a pdf loads. But when I run your code, it creates an empty pdf. The error I get when I try to open it in Preview is "The file “2.pdf” could not be opened...

Downloading pdfs

I used to be a LiveCode developer but I've been away from the platform for a few years. I have 524 pdf files on a web server, at http://webserver.com/1 to http://webserver.com/524. I want a script that will download them all to a folder on my desktop (one at a time is fine, and it doesn't have to be...

mergTestApp broken in 6.7.4

Monte, for me mergtestApp fails silently on LC 6.7.4 and xCode 6.2.

Re: Issues with 64-bit iOS (LC 6.7.2 RC 2 and LC 7.0.2 rc 2)

iOS 7 and iOS 8 both have support from some non-retina devices (ipad min and ipad2), so restricting iOS version will not give full control over whether the device is retina or not. I should have been clearer: retina small screen devices. My app can't run on iPhone 3, 3GS or older iPod touch. People...

Re: Issues with 64-bit iOS (LC 6.7.2 RC 2 and LC 7.0.2 rc 2)

Neil What if I need to restrict my app to retina devices? 6.1 compatible apps can run on non-retina devices. It's late February. Apple required 64-bit binaries from 1 February. How much longer will we have to wait? I'm lucky that with my current project I'm not losing money, just my reputation. Gerry

That mentions nothing about 6.7.2 rc 2. Many of us are not on the 7.x series yet.

Re: Issues with 64-bit iOS (LC 6.7.2 RC 2 and LC 7.0.2 rc 2)

Drives me nuts that RunRev apparently didn't test 64 bit apps against the app store. They should have an app that they submit updates to for every new LC version. I've now been waiting since the beginning of the month to submit an app. Ridiculous.
