Re: Runtime problem in MacOS Catalina

@Rob: It sounds like you are building your standalone as 32-bit only - in the MacOS pane of the standalone settings dialog, make sure you have 64-bit selected.

Re: Colored or shaded sections of code in the SE

The S/E intercepts all things that will mutate the field so that it can provide multiple levels of undo/redo and colorize the script 'on-the-fly'. So when you paste into a section, it will re-colorize the relevant lines thus losing the styling which has been added behind its back. This is why what y...

Re: Help with putting specific text in specific places in a button

@richmond62: That's because you have attached those scripts to the button - buttons cannot contain controls so 'the target' is always the same as 'me'. You will see a difference if you put the scripts in an object containing the button (e.g. card, or group if the button is in a group). Then 'the tar...

Re: URL specification change LC8.1 to LC9.x

Most likely it is Acrobat Reader which is being loaded by the (system) WebView used by LC - Safari does (and always has) done its own thing (i.e. WebViews you get in apps is not Safari - not necessarily even the same system 'WebKit' framework underneath!). The reason I think this is because: https:/...

Re: introspection: current handler name?

The most efficient way to get the handler name is

Code: Select all

param(0)
- then

Code: Select all

param(1), param(2), ...
give you the values passed as arguments in that position (which is useful for doing variadic type stuff).

Re: script local bug or file corruption?

Variable preservation only works if a script compiles and thus applies to an object successfully - if you apply a script to an object which has a syntax error, the previous values of the variables will be lost. So if you click the Apply button when the S/E is telling you there is a script error, the...

Re: The death of grass?

The use-list membership has been declining for years - this is not surprising as the 'majority' of people these days prefer forums to mailing lists and there has been a gradual shift from membership of one to the other. This isn't just a LiveCode thing, but a general thing - mailing lists are a 'dyi...

Re: Load stack from server to mobile

@Klaus: It has taken years for Apple to get to a reasonable, understandable and sensible rule in this regard. The relevant clause of the Apple Developer Agreement is: 3.3.2 Except as set forth in the next paragraph, an Application may not download or install executable code. Interpreted code may be ...

Re: How to get started with ... everything?

@trevordevore: Yes - callbacks passed to win32 API functions should work on 64-bit Windows for this reason (callbacks work in 32-bit too, but they pass a cdecl calling convention function pointer - which isn't compatible with Win32 API callback functions usually).

Re: How to get started with ... everything?

@SparkOut : 64-bit windows processes cannot load 32-bit DLLs (and vice-versa) - so (as you already figured out) you need to include the 64-bit version of the DLL in the relevant code folder to work with the 64-bit engine. The subsequent error would appear to be a bug in the LCB VM - try a version of...

Re: Extension of systemVersion

I get that chromebooks don't run linux. Just curious about what happens there. I've got (very) limited experience with chromebooks to date. Chromebooks run Android apps in the Android environment - so what you get running an LC app built for Android on a Chromebook is the same as what you get when ...

I feel that I should urge any readers of the suggestion of using Cydia Importer to side-load applications as suggested in the post above to do so with the utmost care. Specifically: Do not use it on any iOS device which you use on a day-to-day basis and as a result holds saved login details for any ...

Re: Having the last word

As 'trueword' cuts the mustard for the vast majority of writing systems I wonder what the utility of 'word' is at all, and wonder whether it might not be a good idea to transfer the functionality of 'trueword' to 'word' and then remove 'trueword' altogether. The word chunk (which now also has the s...

It's the only command I could find that tells me I'm running an Android app on a Chromebook, something I'm going to need soon. Changes to the machine on Linux wouldn't affect the LiveCode Android engine - the Android engine uses the Build.MODEL which it gets from the Java Environment. Chromebooks a...

Heh - partly my fault - I didn't make it was the system call/libc call rather than the command line. Really the question here is - what would make a better 'machine identifier' on Linux? Something pithy, easy to splice and dice which actually provides useful information? Bearing in mind the equivale...
