Re: How does Livecode handle concurrent events?

Hmmm. I'm using Windows 7, and I suspect that your example is more powerful than you had intended ;-) Both variants caused me to lose control of livecode entirely. I had to do an alt-ctrl-del and kill the livecode process to regain control. After some experimentation I changed the "exit runCounter" ...

Re: How does Livecode handle concurrent events?

Thanks Richard. I'm struggling enough with object orientated, which all seems a bit wild & hippy, without needing to think about multi-threaded hippy ;-)

And is it "first come first processed", or can some types of new event interrupt the processing of earlier events?

How does Livecode handle concurrent events?

I learnt to programme about the time that disco was giving way to punk & reggae. Then I took a 30 year break. Now I'm trying to get back into it. Could someone explain to me how Livecode processes concurrent events? For example: On LocationChanged CustomHandlerABC End LocationChanged On MouseUp // f...

Android getting confused about app ID

Dear forum How does Livecode define the unique ID for an Android app? When creating a new Livecode Android test app I am: 1) Making a copy of one of my existing apps (File / Save As newname) 2) Changing the name of the stack (Mainstack / Property Inspector / Name) 3) Changing the name in File / Stan...

Re: Livecode windows disappearing

The problem hasn't re-occurred since I read your suggestion. Isn't that always the way.

If it does re-occur, I will try what you suggest.

Regards

Re: Exported images growing in size

Hi Klaus Sorry if this is a dumb question, but when should I use Binfile and when should I use File? Aren't all files stored on computers "binary"? By way of a note - I trained & worked as a programmer a long time ago, then got out of it. I've missed everything that has happened in programming since...

Re: Repeated use of Crop Image causes crash to desktop

Hi Klaus Based on your suggestion I replaced "Crop" with "Export Snapshot" in my project, and it worked perfectly. Where Crop crashed after 1 to 3 repetitions, Export Snapshot carried out 77 repetitions with no problems, and it was much faster than Crop. The only downside that I can think of to usin...

Re: Repeated use of Crop Image causes crash to desktop

Thanks Klaus! Your code runs perfectly on my "replicate the problem" stack. Tomorrow I'll try implementing it in my actual project stack. Thanks again.

Repeated use of Crop Image causes crash to desktop

Windows 7 & Livecode 7.0.6 I'm working on a project which takes a large image (7mb jpg), and chops it up into 9 smaller images. To replicate the problem that I am experiencing I created a stack with one card. One the one card is the 7mb image, named "OrigImage". Also on the card is a button containi...

Re: Exported images growing in size

Thanks Jean-Marc & Klaus I got Jean-Marc's suggestion to work immediately, so I didn't try Klaus's (although I'll store it away for future use). While I have some people who know what they are doing listening, can I ask another question? I'm trying to copy an image, to the same location (card or gro...

Livecode windows disappearing

Windows 7 and Livecode 7.0.6 I'm experiencing a problem whereby some of my Livecode windows disappear. I've had this happen with the Livecode Tools window, and with the Livecode 7.0.6 Main window. The windows disappear from the desktop area. They remain visible as one of the Livecode icons on the ta...
