Re: Livecode keeps deleting my widget files!!!!!

Ok. I’ll pull up a widget and do another test.

Re: Livecode keeps deleting my widget files!!!!!

Which OS are you using? I just tried several different locations on my Mac (Sierra) and could not duplicate the behavior. I even tried changing the order (start testing/stop testing/install also worked fine - LCE was built at that point automatically). The only requirement is that you stop testing b...

Re: specialFolderPaths

I'm unable to reproduce the behavior that you are seeing. I created a test stack (parent) with a button and a couple of fields. The preOpenStack handler copies a stack from the resources special folder path to a fully qualified path. The second stack (empty) is included in the copy files section onl...

Re: specialFolderPaths

How does the main stack/app open the file that you copy? How does it save the data stack once it is updated?
You may want to consider changing the defaultfolder.

Code: Select all

set the defaultFolder to storagePath

Re: specialFolderPaths

I don't think it is the revcopyfiles that is putting it there. Somewhere else in the app it is saving that stack to a path that isn't fully qualified.

Re: specialFolderPaths

Not exactly. When testing, you just need to be sure that the app is not making changes to files within the application bundle. You should be able to do that without going to another seat. My point was that just moving the application to the Applications folder does not change the permissions on it s...

Re: specialFolderPaths

The dictionary needs to be updated. Those delay comments are OBE. To me it looks like you are seeing the source stack (it has to copy it from somewhere). If that stack is referenced and open, then the updates will get saved to the original copy even though you duplicated it. Normally you would not b...

Re: encrypting content in standalone stack

One possible problem I can see with your approach is "lock messages". If you are in the IDE and lock messages, then the stack won't get the openStack message. So you will need to actually encrypt the stack file itself that has your sensitive data. Then the app will need to decrypt when opening. Anot...

Re: One extension with multiple native library implementations

There is an example on GitHub where they have one widget include native controls for several platforms. That one is done with sub-modules, but I would agree that it should be possible.

Re: Invisible syntax error?

Yes, the one that I'm hosting is just for the latest build.
But, you can easily build your own copy. Source stack is here:

Re: Specifying supported platforms in Inclusions entry for LCB extension?

Thanks!

While I'm at it, would it be a good idea to add Version and Author to the dictionary for the Library level entry? We could script it to not include Livecode as an author, but for other authors that would seem to be a nice addition.

Re: Version Control

Script Tracker will generate a composite diff of two versions of a stack file pretty easily. Here's an outline of the process: Download and open ScriptTracker (see link in signature or use RevOnline) Create a folder for the stack Add a copy of the first version of the stack and open Select the stack...
