Method of detecting a valid internet connection

I am looking to see if there is a method of determining a valid connection to the internet. (desktop app) Since, I have content I want to display inside an app, if there is a connection, however if there is no connection I need to be able to show default content in place of live content. This is so ...

Re: Detecting Wifi in ios

Interesting I would be interested in learning about this also, I know in Xcode you have to develop logic to support the absence of a connection, not sure how it would work for the engine. I have an app that will connect to a server, and display content, however if there is no connection, then defaul...

Recent polls suggest that up to 44 percent of the iphone market and 37 percent of the ipad market are jail broken, indeed,...

Re: unix time stamp

That is interesting, what I am doing is using a desktop app to generate a script, part of that script process requires a valid unix time stamp, (in the future) Funny thing when I used the search feature in the dictionary for unix date or time it showed no results, I also tried time and day, in the s...

unix time stamp

I am curious if there is a method of generating a time stamp that would work in the unix system as a time stamp for setting a date and time, in a standalone. I did not see any references in the docs or the dictionary, so just wondering if it is out there but just not documented. I know in PHP I can,...

I am curious if bluetooth will be something that could be considered in the future, audio, mono or stereo, Mic. I know currently Apple has this walled but after receiving complaints from disabled advocates, Apple is actively said to be revising this policy, it would be interesting to know is livecod...

Re: saving substack

Yes, actually, that is extremely helpful, thank you, I did not know that you could clone a stack, I can see a lot of uses for that.

Re: saving substack

@Bernd I see so a substack is subject to the same compilation engine requirements as the main stack, OK that explains a lot. thanks

Re: saving substack

@Richard Gaskin Thanks yes, that is the best explanation I have ever heard concerning how LC works, I appreciate your reply.

So while you cannot save a substack you can save a separate "stack" in a folder, or other such locations, interesting again thank you for taking time to post.

Re: saving substack

Sorry If I misunderstood, but I was under the impression that live code is an engine that is compiled and then distributed, which would mean that you cannot compile at runtime, because of the engine and you cannot change the executable because of the OS, just curious about the differences, in say th...

Re: custom contextual menus

I should also say that my goal would be to use the same code across platforms, at least for windows and MAC OS X. No way. In Windows, it is a Registry entry with a command line. Mac OS X needs a custom plugin and under Linux it depends which desktop environment you use (Gnome, KDE, …). It is doable...
