Re: Session Suggestions for LiveCode Global

There is free material for beginners. There is a lot of free material for beginners. This is a way to give them sessions at LCG that are just for them instead of being more in depth the way most of the sessions have been. Someone who is an LC beginner is not necessarily a development beginner, so I’...

Re: Printing Weirdness...

I’m thinking about maybe doing a session at LCG on printing, but I have to admit that most of you know a LOT more about the topic than I do (so maybe you should do the talk). Anyway, for all your LC Printing Knowledge, please email me everything you can think of (or maybe you should do the talk - I ...

Re: Session Suggestions for LiveCode Global

I'm also thinking about
• An introduction to printing
• How to build a typical record list/input form stack because you are then one step away from hooking it up to a database

Re: Session Suggestions for LiveCode Global

In March's LCG I think I had a simple address book made in about 15 minutes, but the goal was different, to get everyone introduced to data storage, so the session was an hour.

Hey, beginners!

What sorts of sessions/classes would you like to see at the bi-monthly LiveCode Global online conference? What would get you to tune in and watch?

Re: Livecode Next release : Any fixed date ?

Since LC Global started last year, releases seem to be timed to sessions. Since we have a session this week I would think RC-1 might get out this week.

Re: A darker Background editor ! Or more colors to the existing one.

I have always thought the topic of breaking scripts into behavior SOS’s, and using external text editors and frameworks and git are more a...

Re: A darker Background editor ! Or more colors to the existing one.

@bogs Trevor has instructions on how to get ST to update LC so that it reloads the SOS after you’ve saved it in ST. There are numerous dark themes in ST. I don’t like Trevor’s so I’m using Boxy, for example. Atom is definitely more refined than ST (and hacking it is similar to hacking ST), but as of...

Re: Knowing when to Sync 1 DB filed with its replica - How to?

There are lots of ways to do this, including embedding a modified date stamp in a record (that can be set via a trigger, for example), a hash, etc. As far as trying to only pull a single field from a single record, that will require more effort, and I think more network activity than just pulling th...

Re: Business logic / Rules embedded in SQL DB

The only way I can think of to even begin to attempt to do this is via triggers, and the short answer is that the process is difficult and error-prone, and would still require a lot of work on the client side to handle the output from the trigger. Triggers are important and very useful, and can be u...

Re: A darker Background editor ! Or more colors to the existing one.

Hey, Andy,
I’ll have to pull Seth out again. It might have been that long since I started using text editors instead of the script editor.

I did and he was interested, but some things with the SE aren’t as easy to fix as others.

Re: A darker Background editor ! Or more colors to the existing one.

I threatened to do a session on this topic at LCG, but as long as we’re talking about it here: Seth works ok, but it has issues, so I’m not using it, and I haven’t wanted to use it strongly enough to try to fix it. It’s a great idea, but it would be even cooler if we bolted it more directly into the...

Re: Push Notification not working when app is open

There are a number of APNS-related issues. The one you are referring to is captured in QR10901. APNS needs effort for a lot of reasons. For example, silent push doesn’t work, either. Anyway, since you can’t receive a payload while the app is running, when you get the notification, you have to call h...
