About to get slated on app store

Hi there, I just released a new iPhone app today : http://www.doobox.co.uk/fav/fav.html My fundamental understanding is that all things equal, code will run in a predictable way every time without deviance. I have already had a couple of bug reports in saying there experiencing a crash when importin...

Re: Bug hunting visual effect

Thanks adrian. But it does seem in this case that creating the scroller in the pre open card while listening for the scroll event in the card script its self was the issue. I can replicate the issue by moving it in and out of the pre open card handler. At least moving the creation to the open card s...

Re: Bug hunting visual effect

I was barking up the wrong tree i think. If i remove the script from the second card i am moving to i see the effect just fine. I have a preOpenCard handler in the new card that does quite a bit before the card opens (this is obviously causing issue). Question is, how can i work around it. I seem to...

Re: Bug hunting visual effect

Archhh.. even this does not show the effect, but saves it until the return from the new card. if not(pPhotoData is empty) then send movecard to this card in 5 seconds -- just in case there were unfinished handlers end if end renderNewContactGroup on movecard visual effect "scroll up slow" go to card...

Re: Bug hunting visual effect

Yep, its false. I also thought about moving controls, as the mobilePhotoPicker looks to be just about finished sliding away at this point. Not sure it would make the list but this yields empty also : if not(pPhotoData is empty) then answer the lockscreen -- false answer the movingControls -- empty v...

Re: Bug hunting visual effect

Oh my.. it actually is not the locks that are the issue. I thought it was fixed, but what i was seeing was the photo picker sliding down to reveal the new card already in place. I can still see the bug if i pick a huge image, so it takes long enough to load that the picker has disappeared. In this c...

Re: Bug hunting visual effect

Found the culprit, but no idea why its not unlocking as expected. If i remove the lock and unlock lines from this handler, i don't need any unlock lines in my handler thats changing the card with effect, so i can only assume this is the culprit. // ===== PICK NEW PHOTO FROM CAMERA OR LIBRARY =======...

Re: Bug hunting visual effect

I just did : if not(pPhotoData is empty) then unlock screen unlock screen unlock screen unlock screen visual effect "reveal up" slow go to card "photoCrop" end if And now it works. Now to find the real bug.. Where am i missin...

Bug hunting visual effect

Hi there, I have been scratching my head for quite some time over this one. I am not getting the expected result from a visual effect, though i can not replicate the bug in a simplified stack, so it must be unique to my project. Here is the tail end of my handler where i want to move to another card...

Re: Good new way to save data and interface

I was thinking about how id go about updating this app via the app store. For example i may want to have a new titlebar style in the update for arguments sake. As it stands, when i user downloads the update with the new title bar and launches the app, they would of course see the old title bar, beca...

Re: Good new way to save data and interface

I am working with an IOS app.
The data stack is created in the documents folder and is not a sub-stack (allowed on iOS)
All the action starts and ends in the main stack. The only way to do it in app store i think. I don't think your allowed to launch external code from within the standalone.

Good new way to save data and interface

Hi there, I set about creating an app some time ago that allowed a user to add interface elements as they used the app. So for example they could click "New Button" and the app would create a new group of objects and place them in the interface for the user to interact with. Each object has data ass...

Re: Change variable name in a repeat loop

Ahhh.. Thanks a million Klaus. I never would have got that one on my own.

I only ever used "do" in the past like : do the text of field "x" as AppleScript
Things like that.

Now i read the docs for "do" it makes sense :-)
