Re: Recently we've been investing heavily in product develop

Richard, Forgive me if I am being overly dramatic. As you know I have been a big supporter of LiveCode. I have been supportive and positive up until this point. This decision to begin to split the functionality between the Community version and the Commercial versions is a terrible idea that goes ag...

Re: Recently we've been investing heavily in product develop

I have spent a siginificant amount of money over the last couple of years supporting LiveCode. As a hobbyist developer who makes no profit from LiveCode development, I was ONLY supporting LiveCode because of the Community Edition and it's supposed mission of "bringing coding to everyone". Now as Kla...

Recently we've been investing ....[SOLVED?]

TRANSLATION: "Recently, YOU've been investing heavily in product development, by donating to TWO successful crow-funding rounds and buying multiple licences. Now that the hard work is done, we are pricing you out, and crippling the community version" SO long, it's been good to know ya. If any of you...

Re: Can't find handler -- what does this mean?

Is "lbl_total" a field? If so, try this:

Code: Select all

put 3 into field "lbl_total"
Label fields are also fields. Hope this helps.

Re: MySql database for app iOS and Android

I also have an on-rev account, but I'm also not sure if they allow direct connections. I think if you are going to be distributing this app to other users, then best practice would be to use some sort of middleware, as I believe it is more secure than hard coding your database credentials into the a...

Re: MySql database for app iOS and Android

I believe that there are example "middleware" scripts for both LiveCode server and PHP in this thread:

Re: Uploading an image

Try this out:

Create a new stack with a button and an image area.

In the button put this script:

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
   answer file "select an image"
   put it into tPicPath
   set the filename of img 1 to tPicPath
end mouseUp

Hope this helps.

This might work:

Code: Select all

   put "/thisFolder/thatFolder/images/the file name.gif" into tPath
   set the itemdelimiter to slash
   put the last item of tPath

Re: Sheep Hander problem

In your script, you are checking the cIsSheep, but in your template sheep button the custom property is misnamed as cLsSheep. (I capitalized the L here, but in your template button it is lower case)


Hope that helps!

Re: Sheep Hander problem

It looks like your attachment didn't actually get attached, as I believe you will need to have a certain amount of posts before you can attach a file. You can always post a link to your stack hosted on dropbox/google drive/mega/wherever until you are allowed to post attachments.
