Re: Controlling the inverse color of selected text

Thank you danbarx. As I found, NASA gave an estimate of $62.5 trillion for the production of 1 gram. This would help Livecode to become the leading programming language. So, plus and minus do have their values. :D https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antihydrogen By the way, I created a stack which I am pu...

Outerglow of fields

I very much desire using an "outerglow" of field objects which stretches only outside, and not inside, and does not affect the text of an editable field. It is unfortunate that the text in a field is also affected by the out glow, inner glow, etc. This must not be in my opinion or should be settable...

Re: Controlling the inverse color of selected text

dubarx: I was concerned, however, that we seem now to have two "HH" members here. One with a minus sign.
HH+ and HH- together may create void. But did the whole universe not start from such void? :)

Re: Controlling the inverse color of selected text

Thank you for all the nice suggestion. I had the same idea during my rest last night as suggested by dunbarx: y dunbarx » Mon Mar 06, 2017 1:21 am Why not leave the editable field in front, set its opaque property to "false", and size a smaller field behind it, with its backColor set to whatever? I ...

Re: Controlling the inverse color of selected text

well, I tried another way for the full selection of a field: 1. Use a rectangle without border in the same color as the color of the selection of text 2. Use 4 thick white lines around so that selecting the chunk of text is still possible to separate the text from the field border without the user n...

Re: OAuth2 accessing Google Mail and Contacts

Thank you again, Richard and all. This OAuth2 still drives me crazy. I think I need a couple of days time to really get involved understanding the underlying concept and the way of how it is implemented using LC. I am still on the Community addition and will try to get something working using LC 9.....

Re: Controlling the inverse color of selected text

Hi Craig, thank you for the response. One kluge might be to set a borderless semi-transparent graphic over the field Well, yes, I was thinking this way. But it adds a "kluge". A nice word by the way ). In German language "klug" means "witty" or "smart". The problem is that placing a semi-transparent...

Controlling the inverse color of selected text

In other programs, there is a possibility to not just select the letters of a text string in a field, but to select the whole text of the field in a way which is visually more appealing. HilitedField.JPG 1: Not only the letters of the selected text shall be hilited, but choosing a full text selectio...

Re: OAuth2 accessing Google Mail and Contacts

Jacqueline Landman Gay: Writing an email client is a fairly big undertaking and not something I can help with. But the oauth library is included in the Indy and Business licenses and looks easy to use. You first need to register with Google as a client and receive app credentials. I am not sure if y...

Re: Dictionary rewrite - thoughts, please

Thank you for the dictionary. It is a really nice piece of work ). I am working on Windows. So far, I can only say that it works fine. Here are small suggestions: 1. Icons (arrows, watch, ...) do not render nicely. There are better ones I guess. 2. For history, I would like to see another additional...

Re: Possible to build a Excel-like Table

I am really all for Livecode. Nevertheless, not really happy with Googles spreadsheets, I am using gold old fashioned Microsoft Excel on Windows machines, and all my customers are doing the same. Even though there are issues with Excel, to move columns, or to reference cells is really easy once ther...

Re: Possible to build a Excel-like Table

Richard: A good spreadsheet implementation will take many programmer-years to develop, and some of those features (such as discrete cell attributes) would probably be best handled in LiveCode Builder rather than LiveCode Script, where you have more granular control over drawing instructions but that...

Re: Possible to build a Excel-like Table

Richard, it is a wonderful and very thoughtful reply which I really appreciate. I could only say "yes" to each and every paragraph you have been writing. And yes, of course, in reality, we do not want to have another "Excel". This is just a challenging idea thinking about what one could do using Liv...

Re: Data Binding in Livecode

But probably will soon buy an Indy license. Partially, I still think that I have not expressed myself well enough regarding ...
