A little off topic again, but how many skateboarding enthusiasts do we have here? I just started it in 2018 and love it :D
I used to skateboard when I was a teenager in the 1980s, no half-pipe master or anything, but I could get around, ollie up curbs.

Re: play audiofile from web server

"player" objects are desktop-only and not available on the mobile platform! On mobile you need to use "mobilecontrolcreate" to create a mobile native "player" control. Then you can use "mobilecontrolset" to set its filename to the url on your server. I'm not sure that is the case, at least not with...

Re: FFI Help wrapping ObjC

You need to alloc an instance of AVMIDIPlayer and call initWithContentsOfURL on the instance returned from alloc. initWithContentsOfURL is an instance method (- rather than + in objective-c terminology) so it needs to be called on an instance of the class, which should be the first parameter. Ah ye...

FFI Help wrapping ObjC

I got this code, seems like it should work, tried a bunch of various combinations, different methods, etc. private foreign handler objC_NSURLinitURLWithString(in pURLString as ObjcId) returns ObjcId binds to "objc:NSURL.-URLWithString:" private foreign handler objC_AVMIDIPlayer(in pFileURL as ObjcId...

Re: Kind of sad to see...

I've actually been think a lot on how to go about doing a 2D fighter engine in the vein of M.U.G.E.N in LiveCode 9 to produce games in the style of 16bit fighters like Super Street Fighter, but with vectors (SVG) rendered characters and maybe background art loaded into memory in Global Arrays for fa...

Re: FreeLibs for LiveCode

Hey that's cool, S.H., and really great that you're putting it in public domain too! If you don't mind I was thinking of just keep adding stuff to your lib and make it huge, releasing it as public domain on gitHub so other people can fork or contribute. In fact I wrapped another NSApp thing, AppHide...

Re: FreeLibs for LiveCode

LC 9 is so great, I'm loving having access to AppKit even though I don't know all that much about ObjectiveC :D Here's another one I just whipped up in about 2 minutes (most of that was figuring out the binding string). MiniaturizeAll. It takes no parameters and minimizes all document windows (not p...

Re: FreeLibs for LiveCode

Minor change. Added a line so you can pass 'empty' (which apparently is not the same as LCB's 'nothing') or the string literal "" as the soundName parameter to have a silent toast popup. Pass anything else that is NOT a sound in the system and you get the default "you've got mail" sound. Here: UserN...

Re: FreeLibs for LiveCode

OK I added the line for Key:Value pair for soundName, compiled and it works as expected. (Actually not as I was expecting because I had been using notifications through AppleScript, a different process, and so I would always get popup toast regardless of wether or not my stack was in the foreground ...

Re: Garage Band Files don't get listed

I guess they could be a PIA, there were some benefits, like it was great for quickly scanning through large high-res images/Illustrator Files/Photoshop etc. that kept low res previews and thumbnails in their resource forks, back then displaying a poster size image could choke your system to a halt. ...

Re: Garage Band Files don't get listed

BTW, IMO bundles are an extremely useful way to store things (Richard), I can edit the audio recordings used inside my .band files in an audio editor and then when I open the .band bundle in GarageBand again all those resources are updated. I don't have to worry that I linked to the wrong edited fil...
