socketdata and if?

Continuing my playing around with sockets, I'm starting to pass data, or trying to, back and forth. Here's what I can do: I can pass data from the client to a server, I can respond and send data back. Now I'm trying to figure out how to respond to the data in LC. Here's my code: on newMessage theirS...

Re: Free software, closed source

I think you misunderstand. I fully support a commercial and non-commercial version of LC. What I don't understand is the choice to go OSS rather than simply free for the non-commercial version. I'm less likely to release free software that does nifty things like connect to my servers for whatever re...

Global variable, what am I doing wrong?

When clicking a button, I create a global variable called connectedStatus and setting it to having the value "0", it's the status of a network connection. There's a button that says log in, when you click on it, it should read the status of connectedStatus and either pop up the login window, or disc...

Re: Free software, closed source

Desktop, connecting to a non-LC server. Here's part of my original email to them: "I'm developing a few programs using sockets that connects to a ColdFusion server running code I've created. Under the current Community Edition licensing, am I or am I not required to release my ColdFusion code, since...

Re: Free software, closed source

I just got a reply from RunRev to an email I sent. Here's the portion of the email that is of interest for this discussion: "You cannot redistribute software that includes closed source libraries with the open source version of LiveCode. Anything that is part of your application must be made availab...

Re: Group functions

I know it'd be easy to write, but my point is that they're selling commercial licenses based on I assume, the same codebase as the community edition, then it's only logical that they implement changes.

Re: Group functions

That's exactly my point.

But even though there's an Open Source version of LC, I won't be writing it, I'm hoping RunRev will, simply because they have a commercial edition, which I assume uses the same codebase as the community edition.

Re: Group functions

Simple settings or hot-buttons (When dragging/dropping) would solve those issues.

Really, this is something simple to implement that would really speed things up when working with groups and objects, especially if you're working with the tab-panels.

Re: Free software, closed source

Defining *no* parts: I'm building a chat application that talks to a piece of server software I've written. Would I have to release my server code (Written in CFML, NOT in LiveCode) OSS as well to comply with that rule? And no, I seriously do not understand why they would choose to limit software to...

Re: Group functions

Right, and all of these are workarounds for something that's so simple and common it should be in there already. Working with multiple groups, I'd like to be able to: Click the group, shift-click an object and click on Group to have the object added to the existing group. Click the group, and automa...

Free software, closed source

I've been playing with LiveCode for a bit now, from simple form functions to sockets networking and I'm having lots of fun. I'm looking at the licensing and from what I understand, all parts of a project have to be open source when using the community edition? I'd love to see it changed so that one ...

Re: Text entry field, limit characters and executuing script

I just found the answer to the enter thing, indeed enterInField and returnInField solved the issue.

Limiting the fields to x characters, which I also found the answer to, a simple script for onKeyDown that counts the characters in the field, if under the limit the pass.

Text entry field, limit characters and script? [solved]

So I'm messing with my chat application, and I'm trying to figure out how I can 1. limit the text in the text box. 2. Trigger a script when the user hits the Enter key. 3. Use the tab key to move from the text box to the send key. I tried messing with the tab order (Layer order) but all it tabs betw...

Group functions

I'd like to see more group features, such as a simple "Add Object to Group" "Remove Object from Group" and a setting for automatically creating a group with items when using a tab panel.
