Re: Textured Backdrops

You could get quick access to the backdrop setting using Devolution. Should be pretty easy to use one of the custom buttons on the palette for this (just need to be sure the stack with the image is loaded into memory I guess). Also, not sure the demo works as expected. The image seems to be 8x8 whic...

Re: Dictionary rewrite - thoughts, please

Thanks Bernd! I've been working with the built in dictionary a bit over the past several weeks trying to see if I could tackle the white space issue. As pointed out earlier, it isn't a simple tweak of some CSS or HTML. It turns out that the page was using fixed widths for each column, so it took mor...

Re: Dictionary rewrite - thoughts, please

Looks like 9.0 DP8 will include the synonyms. In order to have TinyDict work for old and new versions, I suggest the following additions: -- build Global Array -- get the whole array of all dictionary entries of all dictionaries local tSynonymsNeeded put true into tSynonymsNeeded dispatch function "...

Re: Dictionary rewrite - thoughts, please

I see what you mean about glossary entries. For those, I think the "synonym" definition is not quite the same as for the rest of the dictionary. Maybe we should have the code check to see if it is a glossary entry and not add the "(Synonym of" for those. Change this line: put aValue & " (Synonym of ...

Re: Dictionary rewrite - thoughts, please

Thanks Bernd! Some good stuff for me to think about. (I initially tried to put it at the end of your loop, but you call next repeat so it wouldn't work there. Wasn't sure if anything you did would have been important to copy, so I just added another loop. If not, it could have gone at the top of the...

Re: Dictionary rewrite - thoughts, please

If you add the below code to the mtfOpen handler just below the repeat loop that builds the global array, it will add duplicate dictionary entries for all of the synonyms. Not quite as clean as LC 7 since the "Synonym of" shows in the Keyword column of the table but it does allow searching for synon...

Re: Dictionary rewrite - thoughts, please

The second idea only displayed the first entry after the tab key was pressed to leave the search field. My thought was that at that point you see the term you want defined and if it is the first one it requires two additional key presses to get. I'm very new to LC though, so maybe I'm missing someth...

Re: Dictionary rewrite - thoughts, please

Works great if there is a single result. If there is more than one result, then you have to arrow down and back up to see the first item though.

Re: Dictionary rewrite - thoughts, please

After a little thought, I think this may be a better approach: on tabKey focus on field "fData" of group "modTableField 1" if the hilitedline of field "fData" of group "modTableField 1" is 1 then send "arrowKeyChanged" to field "fData" of group "modTableField 1" in 0 milliseconds end if end tabKey I...

Re: Dictionary rewrite - thoughts, please

Not sure how appropriate it is to post to an old thread, but I have a suggestion for tinyDictionary. If you perform a search and there is only a single result, the only way to view the dictionary entry is to click on the result. My suggestion is to add the following handler to the field "fData" code...

Re: [ANN] Remote DB Lib

Looks very interesting. I'll need to set up a MySQL DB on one of my servers and take it for a spin. I've got a VPS, but would try it out from the perspective of someone with just an account on the server. If anyone needs to do a case sensitive search, the dbLike function can be pretty easily modifie...

Re: Does a workbench stack exist for open source projects?

When I installed LiveCode, I got a "My LiveCode" folder under My Documents (WIN10). I just had to create a "Plugins" folder under that.
