Re: Backdrop is currently useless

@bogs : The issue isn't the size of the backdrop window - its ensuring that window managers on Linux stack the backdrop window correctly. @FourthWorld: Interesting! There's a reference to a 'window group' hint there which might be the key - in particular with regard the 'transient_for' property. It ...

Re: What answer to testFlight encryption four questions ?

@jmburnod: If your app does not use the encrypt/decrypt commands and you are not doing any encryption in LiveCode Script but you are using HTTPS then your answers look correct. i.e. Question 1: YES - your app is using HTTPS Question 2: YES - Your app’s use of encryption is limited to making calls ov...

Re: [Q] Cocoa class delegates

@shaosean: Ali and I are working on it :) It should be possible to do from LCB by using the objc runtime API (things like objc_addProtocol), however, it would be very fiddly (and not general, you'd have to write code to create a delegate on a per-delegate basis as you would need to write wrappers ex...

Re: Backdrop is currently useless

@tetsuo29: You are right - we should turn it off by default on Linux. The main problem is that desktop environments tend to use the 'backdrop' layer (defined by the X11 windowing interop specs) as their desktop window - meaning that no other app can use it. I've personally tried numerous times to ge...

Re: [Q] LCB Library - capture a setProp

Its an interesting idea though - being able to implement properties in an LCB library for existing objects. This would be a little like 'categories' in obj-c I suppose. However, I'm not sure how wide the utility would be as it only really applies to stacks I guess, where they are backed by an LCB ac...

Re: [Q] Window pointer

@shaosean : I take it you are wanting the NSWindow* for a stack? If so, what are you wanting to do with it? The windowId property of stacks gives you the Cocoa window number, which you can convert to an NSWindow* by using the NSApp's windowWithWindowNumber class method (which you should be able to b...

Re: Copy and paste in the IDE

This really needs a bug report with a recipe and appropriate platform information so we can look into it explaining precisely what the issue is, because the initial post isn't clear at all. The Script Editor uses styled text for colorization - I'd assert that it is useful that it copies this to the ...

Re: Browser Widget & Web-Plugins

@PaulDaMacMan: It does sound like a 64-bit issue - as the plugin does seem to run fine in 32-bit LiveCode in the browser widget on my system. Is an older version of the JazzPlugin available to download? Perhaps you could try and see if an older version works in 64-bit, it might help them track down ...

Re: Browser Widget & Web-Plugins

@PaulDaMacMan: If you locate the plugin's bundle, then you can use 'otool' from the command line to find out what slices are in a Mac executable:

Code: Select all

  otool -hv <pathtobundle>/Contents/MacOS/<executablefile>
Typically the executablefile is the same name as bundle - although can vary.

Re: Determine "this canvas"

@hh: The only canvas which can be used to draw to the widget, is 'this canvas' as it is at the start of the OnPaint handler. The canvas provided there only exists for as long as the OnPaint handler runs - any other Canvas's are 'offscreen' canvas objects which can be used to produce images.

Re: Browser Widget & Web-Plugins

@PaulDaMacMan: The browser widget is just a thing wrapper around the Mac WebKit/WebView (Obj-C) framework. The crash isn't happening in LiveCode, but in the PluginHost process which loads and runs plugins (WebKit uses process separation to guard against rogue / bad plugins). Unfortunately, I think t...

Re: My local IP address

I suggest trying 'the networkInterfaces' global property - this gives you the IP address of each network interface present on the local device/system. Desktop machines typically (but only if configured to - which Mac / Win do by default) add a DNS entry locally which maps the name you have configure...

Re: LiveCode for FM Brings Flexible Coding to FileMaker

@YogiYang: LCFM is a FIleMaker plugin, so it you build it into your FM solution and deploy that in the usual way. LCFM works on both Mac and Windows (both 32-bit and 64-bit) and supports FM14 and above.

Re: LCB: Speed difference between LC 8 and LC 9

@hh: Okay - well - that's a *significant* speed difference! Can you share the code which shows it? We did refactor / clean up the LCB VM implementation in 9 ( compared to 8 ), but I wouldn't have expected it to speed up things that much (I'm not going to complain if that is, indeed, the case however).
