Re: Calling a function in LC Server

Back to one of your basic questions, LiveCode is typeless and intuitive in variable definition, so there is no "exists" you can test, the act of checking a variable name will create it, initialised to empty if $_POST["FirstName"] is not empty then put myFunction($_POST["FirstName"]) into tNewVar en...

Re: Calling a function in LC Server

I don't know if this pertains to your question or not, but have you seen this lesson from Jacque's site? Introduction to LiveCode CGIs CGIs provide dynamic content to web sites, and allow flexible delivery of information. This tutorial explains how to use LiveCode as a CGI engine on your server, an...

Re: POLL: LiveCode Server deployment

"Have you seen Scott McDonald's LiveCode Lab? It's pretty cool, a sort of platform-as-a-service for LiveCode Server:
http://thelivecodelab.com/"


This lab is currently offline, but it says it will be back later this year.
Sounds like a good idea though.

Re: ANN: Calendar Plugin

If you found that lesson you cited misleading, don't go looking for Tonto, because you ain't the Lone Ranger. Heh, no, I'm more like the Shadow! Muwahahahah What's "MC"? Heh, that could be a loaded question :P In the days of yore, the great and powerful all mighty omnipotent shtomper wizard (who wo...

Re: ANN: Calendar Plugin

Hi Fritz, You say "so I mostly use Mc for my coding", what's "MC"? MC = MetaCard, the grandfather of Livecode, see here: http://www.metacard.com Best Klaus Oh yeah. I remember MetaCard. When I knew Hypercard's days were numbered, I took a look at that, as well as Supercard. I gave up on the whole c...

Re: POLL: LiveCode Server deployment

Very pleased to read your enthusiastic reply, fritzdekatt. Thanks for chiming in here. There's so much to the range of topics with client-server apps, let's see if we can narrow it down to get you going: what would you like to build, how far have you gotten so far, and what roadblocks have you run ...

Re: Calling a function in LC Server

Have you seen these lessons? http://lessons.livecode.com/m/4070 As for $_POST, what code are you using that you would expect to see an error from? I have seen these lessons many times, thank you. I can send and receive data from the server. What I can't do is call one of my user-defined functions o...

Re: Calling a function in LC Server

I'm pretty sure the CMS you're looking for is RevIgniter. https://revigniter.com/ Thank you. I've seen this. As far as I can see, it's an MVC framework for LC, like CodeIgniter is an MVC framework for PHP. I'm sure this is useful for 99 percent of LC server coders, but I don't care for MVC framewor...

Calling a function in LC Server

If I'm building a browser interface to LC Server, assuming we have no access to any LC desktop objects, what do I use to call a function? I could use a conditional based on the Get array or post via a form, but if I wanted to use a button or list item to call javascript, how could I make this trigge...

Re: POLL: LiveCode Server deployment

I also said that I run it on a dedicated server, without really knowing what this means - out of my comfort zone again. No worries - that's part of my motivation in conducting this survey, to assess needs in the community for tutorials and/or tools to make these things easier. Did someone say "TUTO...

Bogs, 15 I neglected to mention that I did indeed check and set the folder in preferences. It might be informative to someone to mention also that I had neither a plugins or extensions folder originally. Well, I can't imagine 5.5 not having those folders, since they existed all the way back to at l...

Re: ANN: Calendar Plugin

I have 5.5 on a MacBook Pro Sierra and, as you say, I can open the file now but I can't get it to show up under the Plugins menu item. The developer indicated that, for Mac, the file should be in the "MyLiveCode/Plugins" folder, which is where I copied it. Any ideas? I've never used a plugin in LC b...

Re: Scrolling Icon List

I do have a mouse attached, I'm on a desktop machine with no trackpad. I can't say much about the artifacts you're seeing on screen, I've never heard of anything like that. It's pretty weird, and I can't imagine what's causing it. I've also never heard of a system window that says "Set location to ...

Re: Scrolling Icon List

Here's the scollbar on the SVG picker. It's pretty small. Jacque I wonder if you have a mouse hooked up when you see this. I have looked in vain for a similar bar (I know it's small), but I can use it (can't see it so much) when I hook up a mouse (I am using a touchpad on a laptop). However, when t...
