Re: Modifier key behaviour anomalies

Clark, I do consider this a bug, not just an enhancement. You should post your comments to this report, then ask Trevor if he'd upgrade it to a bug rather than an enhancement request. It also wouldn't hurt to update the LiveCode version to the latest, as it might get the attention of the Dev team so...

Re: Modifier key behaviour anomalies

Clark, Your observations match my own on OSX. I also see that on Windows the standard behavior seems to be that Cntl + right/left arrow changes granularity to word-level. LiveCode behavior on Windows matches this behavior. My preference would be that the modifier + arrow key behavior match the host ...

Re: RevServer Clarification

Hi Carly, RevServer is not really the right tool for what you want to do. It is a server-side scripting language, comparable to PHP. It's fast and capable, but the thing you have to know is RevServer has no user interface component, so you can't build a LiveCode interface with it or use any of the o...

This happened after I submitted a user comment for this term. It seems to be the only entry affected, so I'm thinking there is something malformed in the data for the comment.

Scrollable forms

Well said, Richard, as always. :) I agree, as useful and powerful as the new DataGrid object is, it will be even more so the better you understand the inner workings of groups. For simple groups, it's a snap to just add scrollbars to enable scrolling content that's too large to display in the availa...

Menus on OS X

Jeff, I and others get around this "helpfulness" on OS X by NOT checking the "Set as Menu Bar in OS X" check box in the menu builder. This is what I do to avoid the resizing issue (from memory, so tell me if it doesn't work for you.) Leave enough blank space at the top of your window to show a menu ...

Saving stack to file

Bruce, Did you ever get this working? From what you posted it looks fine, although you didn't show your actual code. The only reason I can think of why it wouldn't save to a particular place is that you don't have write permission. In this case it will fail silently, but you can capture the error wi...

Scrollable forms

You may also want to wait for Rev 3.5, due out in a few days or weeks. It includes a new Data Grid object that will do much of what you describe.

Menus on OS X

Hi Jeff, Sorry to hear you're feeling frustrated. You didn't describe exactly what you mean by controls being in the "wrong position". But if you're on OS X you may be running into a bit of quirky behavior that has to do with the fact that menus on OS X are at the top of the screen, while Windows me...

RE: Hover icon

dalkin, Make sure you import the image file to the stack, not just reference it from the library. The library doesn't get included when you create a standalone. This is how I always do it, and it's very reliable: - Import the image file to the stack (File > Import as Control) - Note the imported ima...

type to select value from table/list

I'm coming to the discussion late, but FWIW I created a type ahead search for an app a few months back. I wanted my solution to feel more like the type to select URL feature in Safari. If you're interested you can go to Rev Online and look for my user space, 'devin', and grab the Type Ahead Search s...

Button trick?

Hi bjb007, It sounds like what you want to do, if I'm following you, is to: - Exectue some handler repeatedly while your button is in a certain state; and - Get out of that state and disable execution when the user clicks the button again. Rather than imbed the send command in a repeat loop it's usu...

Coming into this late, but hope I can add some light. When you create a standalone app for Mac OS X, the folder that contains the .app file is automatically the defaultfolder, IF you never set the defaultFolder in your code. I usually do something like this in my preOpenStack or openStack handler fo...

This is a known issue. See http://quality.runrev.com/qacenter/show_bug.cgi?id=4298 For now, what you'll have to do is to copy the icon image into your stack before you assign it as an icon to the button. To do so, open the image library from the Development menu > Image Library. Find the image you w...

New Video Grabber tutorial

Hi folks, I recently found myself with a need to do video capture on my Mac OS X systems, so I immediately went looking for some directions on how to do it. There are commands scattered throughout the dictionary, but that doesn't give a coherent picture of how to do it. Then I looked at the Video Ca...
