Re: Initialization Error - failed to load external?

Just in case anyone else finds themselves at this post because they made the same rookie mistake as me. 1) I copied my standalone's .exe file; and 2) Pasted it onto my desktop When I ran the .exe file from my desktop, I got the "failed to load external" error message. When I replaced step 2 with "Pa...

Re: send email with attachment

On Android 5.0.1, using "mobileComposeMail tSubject,,,,tEmailBody, tAttachment": - did NOT work if tAttachment was located in specialFolderPath("documents"). The email, with attachment, was composed. Gmail could clearly "see" the attachment, because it correctly told me what size the attachment was....

Re: File path to Download folder

Hi FYI With a sample size of one (Android 5.01) test device: - I couldn't get specialFolderPath("external documents") to work. This evaluated to "/storage/emulated/0/android/data/myappname/files", which wasn't the Download folder; but - after a fair bit of experimentation I got "/mnt/sdcard/Download...

I know that, in general, Android ri...

Re: Email Attachments on Windows

Hi AxWald True - I'll revise my statement - Other than a "Hello World" VB script which I wrote as a test after reading the above responses to my original post, I've never worked with calling another programme from LC. The thing that put me off MailAlert was that it seemed to me that this solution wo...

Re: Email Attachments on Windows

Thanks all I will follow-up on the Powershell option. I've never worked with calling another programme from LC before. My understanding of what I will need to do is: 1) Use a tool like PS2EXE-GUI to create a PowerShell standalone executable, that accepts arguments (e.g. email attachment file name) 2...

Re: SQLite - OK in Development but not in Standalone

I went for a long walk on the beach and worked it out. To fix my missing SQLite db problem I had to: - Go into Standalone App settings > Copy Files & remove the existing database file; then - Go into Standalone App settings > Copy Files & add the database file back again. This had the effect of chan...

Re: Virus WIN32:Xpaj-Gen

Seems to be a problem again. I'm currently developing a LC app, and my local Avast software just told me that it had quarantined my app because it contained the WIN32:Xpaj-Gen virus. This wasn't happening yesterday. Avast must have updated something.

Re: exitField firing multiple times

Thanks Craig, Sparkout, Jacque & Richard It does appear to be something to do with an interaction between the Answer dialogue and exitField/CloseField. When I removed "Answer" and replaced this with writing to a logfile, the results for exitField and closeField where as-documented in the LC dictiona...

Re: "One optionMenu to rule them all..."

Thanks Jacqueline I've gone for your last suggestion - a field that displays when the button is pressed. I've put my solution below. I've spent about 15 minutes testing this on Windows & Android, and the early results look promising. Regards Kim ======================================================...
