Re: Newbie Problems - A Star and drawing

Oh right in regards to the original question, I usually store data in arrays that are named by their grid coordinate, for example: array[1,1] array[1,2] ... And it seems this is also what I did for my stack. So I'd run step 1 (scoring) and 2 (nearest neighbour) of A*, and finally i have something li...

Re: Newbie Problems - A Star and drawing

Oh dear my implementation is so... old and weird and crufty...

But I had an amazing tutorial that really was able to explain to my stupid brain how it is supposed to work: http://www.policyalmanac.org/games/aStarTutorial.htm

Re: Error Message Received

cRevGeneral is caused by several things, among them the Geometry Manager, the table field (not the datagrid), and the profile management. I usually advice not to use any of those, because they tend to misbehave.

Re: Newbe… which DB?

It is possible to have several users write, as long as it's not too many, and especially if you refrain from using update. However SQLite warns against using it on a shared drive. Because I was scared of that, I made a socket server & client in LC, which then writes into a SQLite file locally. Becau...

Re: Foreign letters - messed up between mac and windows

Actually I think in this case it'd be enough to use mactoiso() and isotomac() at the correct place.

Re: Parsing Livecode script

Re: Uniqueness of the long ID

What means "unique to program"? The version or the saving modus ('legacy version')? The critical value to determine the next ID is probably saved with stack, isn't it? Or where is it stored? The program means the currently running engine. So if you double click on version 6.6.1 of the LC-IDE that's...

Re: Uniqueness of the long ID

The long id is unique to the program. However, the long id can be finicky, because it sometimes includes the full path and filename of the stack. So if you rename the stack file, that might confuse stuff. Furthermore the all id's of all owners are included, so if you move an object out of, or into a...

Re: Create User Controls

Both your examples are the same, the difference is only how the user looks at the stack. I would also suggest not to copy any custom control around, instead have a coded way to create a custom control. For example in chartsEngine there's a handler called "chartsCreate", A complete script to create a...

Re: Create User Controls

Externals are always foreign-code additions that are bound using the external c bindings. Usually they're made with C, C++ Obj-C or similar languages. Plugins are usually stacks that are run in the IDE itself, like my BvG Docu stack. Often they're integrated using the 'Plugins' menuitem from the 'De...
