Re: Refactoring

I really thought that it was the invention of Commodore (CBM) for their PET computer but years later I found out from Wikipedia that Jiffies where a time measurement invented in the 1800s - and they are also used in the Linux kernal The earliest technical usage for jiffy was defined by Gilbert Newto...

Re: Refactoring

Well knock me down with a feather, thanks Klaus. I ALWAYS assumed right at the start of my Livecode journey that it defaulted to milliseconds so I always put secconds or milliseconds on the end - so I never noticed. How could I doubt Jacques' recollection of the Livecode basics...... Can we count in...

Re: Refactoring

I agree with Jacque about the interval but it is 120 milliseconds not 2 seconds -- whole lot of thrashing goin' on .....

Re: Label Field - Can I get it to name it's self?

HI Craig, So you are into QED and QM as well? - Wolfgang Pauli is the answer - brilliant retort. I would just say "that's Cr*p" because time's too short waiting for the penny to drop - I just save time and use 2 words instead of 4. Men of few words are the best men - William Shakespeare and who am I...

Re: distorted graphics when using move or set loc

Hi I would suggest it's the driver. If it works on some machines and not others. When you install windows on a machine that you do not have the latest graphic driver to it uses a "generic" vga Driver. If the OP has updated to Windows 10 from say a windows 7 machine then W10 will put in a generic dri...

Re: Unexpected behaviour

Hi Axwald, I have implemented systems using LC to check on changes - as in additions.It worked perfectly except you adjust the send in time so its not instantaneous but not too long. The API way though allows checking for size changes , deletions , modification date changes , deletion and addition o...

Re: Unexpected behaviour

The best way of doing this is to use tge calls in the windows api That exist for this specific purpose. The problem is that you need to write a widget to Do this. I’m throwing this here for the more experienced widget creators ... it is vey specific and could be a good template for other operating s...

Re: Sqlite Version - is it really from 2005??

Thanks Panos, Good to know we are only a couple of years out. They must have changed their numbering system https://www.sqlite.org/oldnews.html and I thought the latest was 2015. Oh and by state of play I was asking about the Sqlite Library that was funded in Mat 2016 - and would be ready 3 months a...

Re: LiveCode Multi-Search

Hi, Brilliant stuff Andy , thanks for that. I would suggest another resource which is basically a labour of love (can't be anything else). It is Scott McDonald's site where he categorises and lists (most?) of the livecode lessons on 1 page. So much easier to navigate http://livecodesupersite.com/ I ...

Re: nseslo ---> lesson (='.'=)

Hi Klaus,

I was looking for something like unZip or unArc or unSit so we could tell what they used. Windows has built in Zip support so should uncompresss GZip - but obviously not. Linux certainly should.

Re: nseslo ---> lesson (='.'=)

Hi All,

Looks like the original author uses a zip file format (sit/stuffit) that is automatically known by LC/Mac because there is no "uncompress" code" that I can see.

The uAllwords is there - I saved and ran it both on windows 10 and 7 (in LC9 RC1 and LC 6.7.11 after saving in legacy) still the same problem. The download link has a cloud symbol which I downloaded from and...
