Re: Prefs Stack Problems

Hello again, After a bit more troubleshooting, what I'm discovering is that my prefs stack might be a red herring. What I have determined now is that "revChangeWindowSize" is causing my openStack handler to exit before my prefs file gets opened. revChangedWindowSize is working as expected in the IDE...

Prefs Stack Problems

Hi. I've run into a problem that's perplexing me. I have a program that I wrote way back in LC (or was it still RR then?) 4.x. I've been maintaining it and updating it from time to time. With LC 7, something seems seriously broken with my preferences stack and I'm not figuring out how to fix it. Bas...

Re: Easy cross platform way to show a file?

Hi Simon, Yes, it's very important to use the Finder/Explorer/[Whatever the equivalent is in Linux]. I don't want to develop my own file browser I want to allow the user to press a button in the interface and be take to the file in whatever native desktop they are using. The good news is, that I fou...

Re: Easy cross platform way to show a file?

Hi Andrew, Thanks for responding. You're correct if the path given to launch document is the path to a file it will open the document with the default application. However, if the path given is the path to a folder, then the Finder/Explorer/Linux Desktop will open a window to that folder. That's wha...

Easy cross platform way to show a file?

Hi all, launch document PathToAFolder ... is an easy way to open the folder containing a file in the Finder/Explorer/Linux Desktop. However, am I missing something obvious? Is there a way to highlight a particular file that is simple and cross platform? (I saw one solution that involved AppleScript,...

optionKeyDown - Community 6.6.1 - Windows

Hi all! I've discovered what appears to be a bug with optionKeyDown and Windows. The following works as expected on OS X: on optionKeyDown theKey --answer numToChar(charToNum(theKey) - 128) answer charToNum(theKey) if charToNum(theKey) = 182 then set the visible of button StopAskingCheck to true -- ...

Re: Clarification on GPL source code requirement

From the GPLv3:
The “source code” for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it.
So, it looks like I have an answer. Distributing source code in the case of LiveCode means distributing your stack(s).

Re: Clarification on GPL source code requirement

But if you have other goals, it would be better to choose a license that reflects your intentions. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't tempted to distribute something and only comply with the letter of the law. And, I get your point about the intents/goals of the GPL and it is a point well taken. Howev...

Re: Clarification on GPL source code requirement

Why go to the extra effort of generating the text file?
Really? I think it's quite obvious- in order to be able to comply with the letter of the GPL and yet somehow still violate it's spirit- like what Tivo did. So, I get your point and yet I'm still curious about a direct answer to my question.

Clarification on GPL source code requirement

Hi. Does anyone out there know what the requirement of providing source code under the GPL with the Community Edition requires?

Do you need to distribute your source stack(s) in order to fulfill the requirement? Or, can you simply export your source code to a text file and fulfill the requirement?

LiveCode

I'm a bit surprised that there isn't a discussion regarding the change from Revolution to LiveCode. I myself am still trying to get my head around the changes and what it means to me. It seems that one of the immediate changes is that a $299 license like I currently have will be more limited than it...

Re: answer file with type .pages & .numbers bundles

Hi Klaus, I'm not Japanese, just a fan of the old school anime classic "Akira". So, as follow up to my earlier question, since a .pages or a .numbers "file" is returned as the path from the answer file command, but they are actually directories, is there some way to test a path to see if it is a fil...

answer file with type .pages & .numbers bundles

I'm using the following to allow the user to select .csv or .tab files: answer file "Select a .csv or a .tab file:" with type "Comma Separated Values|csv,tab" It works great except for the fact that iWork documents are now bundles (i.e. they are unix directories) similar to application bundles.

Mark, Thanks for being patient with me. I think we're starting to speak about the same thing.

For instance, what would be the simplest way to scale...
