Re: Datagrid problem

Datagrids are more than you see on the screen. Each datagrid you place on your card/stack brings with it a template substack. Simply copying a DG from one stack to another will not copy the required templates that were installed with your original DG instance. So, either do as has been suggested and...

Re: Docset Reader now on LiveCode Share

@jacque 42! :shock: So the “Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything” was determined by a mobile interface, and Android, no less. I am not sure how Marvin would feel about this. I, for one, am becoming quite depressed. I can just hear the smirks of smug satisfaction comi...

Re: Docset Reader now on LiveCode Share

@bwmilby, gosh I completely forgot about laptops. In a way they are so far behind mobile platforms. In this case I firmly had a suggested size for mobile in mind but when finished it will take its environment fully into account. :D Thanks for testing though (and yes, please don't use this as a DASH ...

Re: Docset Reader now on LiveCode Share

Thanks @bogs.
Still a rough cut.
Transitions still to have visual effect, resizing to tablet (well whatever the screen offers), auto orientation, saving prefs to name just a few.
But I think were getting there.

Re: Docset Reader now on LiveCode Share

Here goes. I have uploaded the next version. It is a major rewrite and still very much a work in progress. Limitations - Not really ready to make standalone Standalones will not change orientation. Font size adjustments will not be remembered between uses. This is still for testing in the IDE. There...

Re: Docset Reader now on LiveCode Share

Just an update. Given my initial aim here was to provide Android and possibly linux users with a docset reader I am making some mods which I should be able to post in a day or two. The stack no longer uses a tree view but a wipe to display entries for a particular type. The actual display will then ...

Re: Docset Reader now on LiveCode Share

@bogs Htmltext would have been my preference too. I make extensive use of it in my ebook app. The reason for using the browser widget here as opposed to htmltext is very simple. Tables cannot be rendered in htmltext. For litle things, we worked around it in “tiny dictionary” but once you try to list...

Re: Docset Reader now on LiveCode Share

Thanks for your kind words bogs. The db error is I suspect due to the copy problem. Initially the copy commands I used were non linux (!!?) so I moved over to the revcopyfile and revcopyfolder commands that then required to be called a little later in the chain. The load new docset handler is still ...

Re: Docset Reader now on LiveCode Share

I uploaded another version (V3) as I really discovered my idea of cross platform was sketchy to say the least. In doing this I discovered that some of the libraries required probably weren't loaded when they were called. from the docs... Note: In a standalone application the Common library is implem...

Re: Docset Reader now on LiveCode Share

I made a standalone on my Mac and didn't observe any of the issues reported. The tree display only slowed a little (less than a second) when I had multiple headings expanded. I am a bit perplexed. I probably should have omitted the "Info" and "Font Size" buttons as they are really not required on a ...

Re: Docset Reader now on LiveCode Share

Ok, seems there are cross platform issues I need to look at. I only ever tested in the IDE :oops: which might explain why I never had these issues. For me on my machine it is almost instant in loading and drawing the tree. The docs, once copied into the documents folder, are only ever loaded when an...

Re: Docset Reader now on LiveCode Share

So glad it worked. Funny, for some entries it is not wide enough! Try typing in "abs". But yes, I did think later a drag target to change the relative widths might be good. I had only really thought of tablet usage so figured anyone compiling it would adjust things to suit. I am not sure what non Ma...

Re: Docset Reader now on LiveCode Share

I have updated the reader to check for platform.
If not a Mac it asks for and moves a folder (Livecode.docset).

It also no longer quits if you don't have one.

Re: Docset Reader now on LiveCode Share

Hmm.
I did this on a Mac and perhaps that is the issue.
On a Mac “Livecode.docset” is seen as a file, not a folder (even though it is) and so it is the whole folder that is located and copied.
I will check. Perhaps I need to do a platform check and if not Mac, act on the folder.
