Re: Execute function after some time

Hi!
That's because functions need to be GOT
You need either to :

send "get myFunction("& "Hello" &")" to me in 2 seconds

or

send "myHandler" && "Hello" to me in 2 seconds


... I think.

Re: Grouping two objects and grabbing the group

Hi David,
All in one mouseDown message? Some code golf competition I guess...
Anyway, doing :

Code: Select all

on mouseDown
  grab graphic 1
end mouseDown
Just as the dictionary says only works when placed in the card script

It seems implicit that you can only grab the target of the mouse event.

Re: custom slider : mouseRelease & mouseUp not triggered

Since you, as the author, were making the statement 'mouseRelease & mouseUp not triggered'... I expected that to be the case... However, it works for me...:-) If I release the mouse whilst still inside the graphic 'thumb' then, mouseUp is fired... outside the graphic 'thumb' mouseRealease is fired....

Re: Identifying Invisible Files & Folders

Hi John,
I don't know Mac but on Windows you can shell "dir /a:h" to get the hidden files, and "dir /a:-h for the visible files.

True and true...
However just to answer your initial question, you can still

Code: Select all

go to card 1 of stack myStack in window
if you want to stick to stack (Ha! Pun!) based forms.

Re: udp callback messages when app in background

Hi Mario, welcome! I'm no expert but since you didn't get any reply... I don't think what you describe is the normal behavior. It doesn't happen on Windows in any case! Does this happen in the IDE as well? My guess is that you have something in your code that either closes the socket or locks the sc...

Re: How to document code (such as JavaDoc?)

This is very cool! Thanks for sharing!
You need to use \ for file path on windows , and for some reason the stack resising is completely off. Apart from that it seems to work fine on LC 7.1 windows.

Re: String parsing

Hi,
Dictionary says it "probably isn't suitable for use in a general-purpose language parser", but the token keyword has been very useful to me.

Re: Function polymorphism

Craig,
If you think it's worth it, you'll probably do a better job at it.
But please don't postpone LC8 dp2 on my account!
