Re: MergDoc / mergDocShowPreview Bug?

Thanks for the reply bogs. However, it did not help in the end. I am leaving this here to help someone avoid spending hours trying to fix this issue. It turns out the status bar would reactivate after using the mergDocShowPreview function(not sure if this is a bug or the need for a function to be ad...

To test I put a button on my sub stack with "go to "mainstack" in the button and this worked. subsequently, after the first button I put on the sub-stack worked the main script now works as ...

Twitter Private Message

Hi All,

I'm interested in sending private messages from the REST API of twitter with LC. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Can we use the add-on from Merg to do this?

Thanks

Re: error saving standalone application 7.1.4

Hi istech, Is there any issue that is preventing you from moving your project into LC 8.x? If yes, I suggest you file a bug report at quality.livecode.com Now back on topic. When you opened the stack in LC 8, did you create a standalone? If yes, did you choose "Search for Inclusions" or "Select Inc...

Re: Routines for very large numbers.

Just to complete this interesting discussion with another option. You could use python's bignum package via shell (or more advanced: use sockets). Here is a stack that show hows to do this, use example 1 for start. What one should know: In Python is "power" not "^" but "**", for example 2^5 is in p...

Re: Routines for very large numbers.

Yes I was typing fast. However tried both with and without quotes. Same result. It's like after the limit is sees the numbers as "0" after. Very annoying when you are scratching your head for half an hour. :D I'm actually surprised its not come up sooner.

Re: Routines for very large numbers.

I hope all are fine, Just a small update on this thread. I have run into some small issues with this same problem with numbers larger than 17 digits. example If you try to compare 2 digits over 17 digits and the numbers over that limit are different it will always be positive. if "123456789012345612...

Re: Is there a built in Base10 to Base64 encoder/decoder

@ -hh You pretty much nailed it. Thanks a million. BytetoNum/NumtoByte never used it before but that was the magic function I needed. Thanks again for your time and much appreciated for others trying to translate what I wanted. Thanks for making this a great forum all.

Re: Is there a built in Base10 to Base64 encoder/decoder

Hi all, I think we are drifting away from what I need. So I will provide a example. You have a base64 encoded information "AwIDBA==" (translate to binary below) You have the binary translation per byte "00000011 00000010 00000011 00000100" Which gives you the decimal "3 2 3 4" 00000011 = 3 in decima...

Re: Is there a built in Base10 to Base64 encoder/decoder

@Sparkout-Yes, it has to be a number. So the base64Encode()/Decode does not work for my situation.

@dunbarx-Yes, There are many online converters that do it for you. I just need a Livecode version. "https://conv.darkbyte.ru/"

Is there a built in Base10 to Base64 encoder/decoder

Hi Livecoder, Got a small issue. I want to convert a base64 string to Base10. However the "baseconvert()" does not cover b64 to b10 or vice versa(In the dictionary). Is there a solution other then writing a function to do it? I have done a quick web search and found some php versions. If there is no...
