Re: Duplicate Control Names - Don't understand

Rule: Might be worth reading about childControlIDs, altid etc

You may become more confused after, like me.

Re: Screen Flash and Visual Effect

Perhaps forum users need to build a function matrix for LC versions/OS and tick in a box if they know it works. Then when you need a certain range of functions/features for an app you can look for a match in the matrix. So you know if it will work before even trying.

Re: Does MobGui work with LiveCode 7.0 RC-2?

Try with an LC 6.. version - mobgui does look/often functions better than LC buttons on mobile. Currently I'm using 6.7 rc2 which for Windows/android seems to work quite well - builds quickly. But you may find 6.6.1 or similar may be more stable for Mac with Mobgui. It's a shame there's not a few mo...

combobox menu on Android

On android the combo box selector remains visible if you have short word selections e..g car, cat, dog etc. Ideally it should be hidden when the selections appear.In certain positions it actually hides selections. What's the best way to resolve e.g. pad all selections with extra spaces?

Re: Detect if 3rd party app is installed (Android)

You could use when opening the stack, e.g. answer "To use .. you need to install xyz" with "OK, install", "Already installed" etc So "OK install" takes you to E.G. http://zxing.appspot.com/scan Whatever they respond - you don't ask them again. Or, e.g. if the QR company has 'a custom url' you could ...

Re: Native mobile scroller for list field (dynamic content)

this may not work but I use: Set the top of group "ScrollArea" to -vOffset Even if it doesn't fix your problem it does give a much smoother scroll on Android. I have been trying to develop a similar concept - but by cloning a group of objects to add to the scrolling group - so the contentrect increa...

Re: Streaming videos from Vimeo within an app

Newtronsols, what I am experiencing is that the player loads, the share buttons, and video controls are visible,as well as the image for the video, but when you press play, only the sound plays - the video remains black. As far as I know this is related to the bug that Chris posted.... --Sefro Curi...

Re: Streaming videos from Vimeo within an app

Yes I have it working on Android - have you set application permissions to Internet? or tried another version of LC.

I tried share and I get 3 + 1 red boxes. if you click the boxes you can share by email.
