Re: Multi Threadedness ?

I'd like to hear what Mark thinks since previously the answer has been "no".

Re: Multi Threadedness ?

Well, since the QR was opened many moons ago, I don't think the answer has changed.

Re: Multi Threadedness ?

I see what you were asking on sync/async now. I am more thinking about comms priority. I am not aware of an environment that has thread blocking. I'm not sure if that is even a good thing, especially since if the process wants to wait, it can wait. I'm not thinking of multithreading/processing/taski...

Re: Multi Threadedness ?

Skipping the primer for the n00bs at the top, and down to the questions: On the first question, at least in my experience, this is a typical IP messaging model. Synchronous messaging refers to in-real-time or ASAP messages. Asynchronous messaging means anything other than that. This lets the engine ...

Re: Multi Threadedness ?

If your "process" can't tell the difference then is there a difference? That was rhetorical, of course. Process is in quotes because we might call it a process or a thread but it might not be a true independent thread. Syntax: We would have to start with features, because there is a lot of stuff to ...

Re: Play sound file with local notification

My apps play sound when they receive a push notification when the app isn't open. It's not a custom sound though.

Re: Multi Threadedness ?

I've been asking for multi-threading for forever. I disagree that it's that much work for me as the developer. Most of the time threads are independent. Things only get interesting when you have threads that need to interact with each other or with some shared resource (like a database). For those c...

Re: YAML and LiveCode

Trevor has one in his Levure framework, since Levure used YML for configuration.

Re: Datagrid blessing or nightmare

What it might do is help build a better beginner guide for presenting data in LC.

Re: Datagrid blessing or nightmare

Hey bogs, tell me more about struggling with learning the DG. I did a beginner session during this month's LCG that included using a DG, and thought that in the short time I spent covering using a DG I would have gotten someone to the point that the could use it effectively.

Re: Datagrid blessing or nightmare

Yes, that's a newer version of MTF. Bernd has been working on it to make it work better for mobile. There are some issues with it (which may be LC bugs), but he's still working on it. I love both the DG and MTF. DG is more of a luxury ride, and MTF is more of a sports car, so I tend to use the DG fo...

Re: Datagrid blessing or nightmare

I've been messing with MTF on mobile but ran into some issues with it. Bernd is aware. I don't know if he can fix them or not.

Re: Datagrid blessing or nightmare

dg's use template substacks and other behaviors that cause VBT. I think you can set them to act like backgrounds, though, and add the background to other cards in the same stack. Now that Trevor is going hard-core YML, maybe we'll get DG 2.1 that you just configure in YML and can easily use between ...
