How To Distribute An Education Stack?

I have an LC programming tutorial stack updated for v8.1.1. The Educational Outreach section of the forum is currently trying to organize and package LiveCode to meet established US curriculum standards. They have yet to create a repository for content submission and review. Any suggestions how to d...

Re: ANN: New dictionary

Hi MaxV. Nice LC 8+ Dictionary alternative, though not a replacement. I've made some modifications to MaxDictionary. Please check your Private Messages. (click user control panel at top of forum while logged on) Terry

Re: Reports

Hi AlphBase. Sorry, no report builder in LC. You have to write your own custom solution. Here's a 1-card printing stack taken from a LiveCode tutorial I wrote. It includes demo code for printing reports, text, fields, and cards. Maybe it'll help. The complete tutorial is at the web address below. A ...

Re: Open Printing To PDF

Thanks for testing Craig. Yes, I thought the routine worked in LC 6.7.9 - Win7 too...but not 6.7.11. As mentioned previously, the script editor compiles, but when run the script editor re-opens indicating an error at the "print to pdf" line. Because 6.7.x & 7x series are no longer updated, I'll just...

Open Printing To PDF

(LC 6.7.11, Win 7) Hi LiveCode experts. I was printing to pdf using code that used to work when I received an unexpected error: execution error at line n/a (printing: Unknown destination). The script editor indicated the "open printing to pdf" line of code as the problem. Is that like Final Destinat...

Re: Count # of Unique Two-Word Phrases (Strings/Items)

Filter would be another fast method, especially to display the lines that contained the search string, but it wouldn't accurately count occurrences if the search string appeared more than once/line. For that first filter then use the offset() routine to count occurrences with the smaller subset of l...

Re: Limiting a field to 2 decimal places

Great fun. The closeField suggestion could handle integer only and re-entering decimal point by applying restrictive formatting with numberFormat, which also auto-rounds. Would this help? Terry on keyDown X --allow only numbers and 1 decimal point, formatted for 2 decimal places if X is a number or ...

Re: Performance meter

Hi Shikha. How did your performance meter / prediction tool turn out? I made one that might give you a few more ideas. Seven criteria scored from 0 to 3 with weight option. Final score converted to a percentage of total score is displayed in a slider with resizing color bars. Everything was "off-the...

Save Changes Using Stack Player

A stack player may be useful distributing your stacks to those who don't want to install the LiveCode program, or to help convince them installing and learning to code with LiveCode might actually be fun. Save changes to the stack being played with a closeStackRequest handler placed in its stack scr...

Nine Chart Examples

Here are nine charts I made as examples for your own project: pie, bar, bar group, line, spatial, spider, thermometer, speedometer, stem & leaf. They demonstrate the use of templates, grouping using create, and points for line graphics. I tried to make them simple and basic. No globals, no custom pr...

Convert to seconds/dateItems and is a date don't work in Windows when calculating with dates < 1/1/1970. This is a Windows issue, not LiveCode. A work-around is to do math directly on the date numbers with approximate result. I have a kludgy past-date function. There must be a better elegant solutio...
