Re: Help how to make such widget

Why do you want to make a widget? I always write a relatively simple script to set up my database. It doesn't need a specific GUI and doesn't need direct access to the API of the OS. I see no reason to use LCB, but if you do please enlighten me.

Re: LiveCode Meetingin Breda, the Netherlands

Rob, I have organized the Dutch UG meetings for a long time. I try to organize a meeting twice a year. The last meeting was over a year ago, however, so I guess it is time to organize one soon. Feel free to send me a private message or e-mail and I'll put you on the mailing list of the group. Kind r...

Re: Create new Local ID or Retreive 1 from Online DB ?

No, you're not at a good level of paranoia. You're the type who would kill his app for security's sake. First learn something about threats and security and then decide which level of security you need. Leave out terms like paranoia. That's not a term that should be used in software engineering and ...

Whatever. If you think you know best, then why did you ask your question in the first place.

Usually ID's are easy to guess and protection against SQL injection isn't done by complicated ID numbers.

Re: Create new Local ID or Retreive 1 from Online DB ?

Well, no, why would it have to be smarter than that? The point is just that sometimes internal and external ID's aren't the same, so if you decide to use an external ID like a customer number, you often may want to consider this a field just like any other and use the internal, automatically generat...

Re: Create new Local ID or Retreive 1 from Online DB ?

Why "emulate"? That concept doesn't make sense here. Internal and external ID's are just different things with different purposes. As I said, don't make it more complex than necessary.

Re: Create new Local ID or Retreive 1 from Online DB ?

Make a distinction between an internal and en external ID. The internal ID is for the database and links records of different tables. The external ID is for you, e.g. a client number. The client number is stored in only one table in the database, while the internal ID is stored wherever applicable. ...

Re: Connect To Server At Startup

The syntax "wait 5 seconds" is blocking and during this time LiveCode will never be able to make a connection. Instead, you should use "wait 5 seconds with messages" but there is a better way to do this. local lSock = "192.168.15.189:12345" on openStack newConnection end openStack on newConnection i...

Re: using UTF-16 instead of UTF-8 between Stack and Hosted DB

Sure. If the UTF16 encoded data in the MariaDB fields are correct, there is no reason why it wouldn't display correctly in LiveCode. I don't understand why you mention data transfers separately. This may depend on your server and on the specified data transfer method, a transfer shouldn't affect the...

Re: the polygon tool

You could ask the user to click on the card, record the points and save them in a variable, and set the points of a new polygon to that variable.

Re: Copy-pasting accented text into LC

If I copy your original text from the browser and paste it into LiveCode, I get an incorrect result. However, if I type the text manually in LibreOffice and copy-paste it into LiveCode, it works fine. What is your exact set-up? (I still have to try OpenOffice on my new Mac).

Re: rest api used --http2

To force LiveCode to use http2, you'd have to change libUrl or tsNet.tsNet might have a parameter that lets you choose http2, since it includes the CURL library. Unfortunately, tsNet isn't open source. You could also write your own request along the lines if write "GET /index.html HTTP/2.0" & cr to ...
