Re: Problem with connecting to SDK

Make sure you select the xcode.app (not just the folder that xcode is installed into). Does LC say "The chosen folder is not a valid iOS SDK.", or something else? Note that LC sometimes has problems with diacritics (umlauts) in the path. If you have non-ascii chars in the path to xcode, maybe that c...

Re: Bluetooth

on desktop platforms, bluetooth can always be used via the serial port support, altho not every bluetooth implementation supports that (only most of them). Mobiles are just extremely non-standard, making lives of everyone unnecessarily hard.

Re: Combo Box Limitation

Oh of course, combo boxes are used a lot for filtering large lists on Windows, I forgot. Mostly because I force myself to avoid platform specific approaches in LC. Said that, it should work like other combo boxes on Windows, and therefore it's a valid bug -> http://quality.runrev.com

Re: Combo Box Limitation

Wow, in my oppinion, combo boxes should support way less lines, maybe 20 at most.

Think of your poor users, and use a different way to present that data. I suggest a sortable list field, but even better would be a way to avoid showing so much data at once.

Re: Download not working with link or libURLDownloadToFile

I tried to say that you should read the dictionary entry, and not try to do random things 8) You say that the download, as initiated within the browser instance is not starting, despite the same link/url working from a normal safari window. the dictionary says it should start. If all that is right, ...

Re: Download not working with link or libURLDownloadToFile

As far as I can read in the dictionary, browserDownloadRequest is more of a notification that the browser will now download a file, and you don't need to do anything... at least on Mac OS X. In addition you're trying to download the url twice in the code too! (launch vs liburldownladotofile) But tha...

Re: Peer to Peer Networking Stack

Hmm.. so you're saying it needs to be the same originating port, something like: open socket to remote:8000 from local:8000 I think that it's impossible to specify the local (second in the example) port. It's given out randomly not by the engine, but by the OS. at least as far as I know, no other la...

Re: Isolating and displaying imported file names

To display stuff on a card you should use a field. Then you can use code to put stuff into the field, for example: set the itemDelimiter to tab answer file "" put it into myPath put item -1 of myPath into field "filename" Your second question, as far as I understand it, is about how to put the two f...

Re: Changing the tab names of a tabbed panel via script

it's a bit weird, you have to set the text of the button to a list of lines:

set the text of button "tabs" to "entry 1" & return & "entry 2" & return & "entry 3"
