Re: I need a lead on icns manipulation

Thank's guys, That stack as far as i can see spends most of the code, finding the icon file and putting a copy of the file in another known location. I already have the icon in a variable by the time i want to turn it into an image. The bit that converts the file to an image that can be displayed is...

Re: I need a lead on icns manipulation

Hi doobox, you actually mean icns as in MacOSX icns, the image format that holds different resolutions of images used by the system to display icons for e.g. files of a specific type? Could you elaborate what your are actully doing. Icns are not directly accessible from Livecode. Or am I misunderst...

Re: Stop my inputs activating keyboard on start

Hi there,

Thank-you, that makes sense.

I was just trying to code:
Disable the keyboard before card opens
Focus nothing after card opens
Then re-enable the keyboard.

Not sure if that would work, did not finish it yet. But your method sounds a lot easier and one i will now adopt.

Stop my inputs activating keyboard on start

Hi there,

I cant find the right way to stop my text input field "feild1" from activating the keyboard on app start.

I have tried, on the card:
on preopencard
focus on nothing
end preopencard

Keyboard still becomes active and feild1 takes the focus.
