Re: Peer to Peer Networking Stack

It would help me if you code an example script, of how it should work in LC, and what would need to change for it to work. Because as far as I understood it, there's nothing missing in the socket implementation for LC? Also you never clarified your question (further up in the thread), so I couldn't ...

Re: Lets send a message when MAXIMIZE stack is pressed

Dunnow about the reason... maybe because only on windows maximize actually is different from a normal resize?

The age-old workaround is in fact to check in a stackResize message wether the stack is the same size as the screen...

Re: Timeline & planned features new multiplatform media play

I'd say this is the wrong place to ask questions directed at the company, most people here on the forums are just users. If you want to talk directly to RunRev, I suggest you send them an email: support@runrev.com Said that, asking about the future is probably futile, mostly because things change, a...

Re: how to get scripts working

LC depends on proper returns at the end of lines. It's possible that the engine on windows expects script files to use crlf, and the example file is probably made for unix/linux. You can use the LC ide to convert the file into crlf, but make sure you do this with a copy, so you can try other solutio...

Re: Automatically Updating Stacks

Just for clarity, I'm not saying you must use text files. What I meant is that it's easier then finding a way to check version information that is stored within a stack on a webserver. If you have a database online, it's probably easiest to store your version information within the database, I guess?

Re: Menu Builder Woes?

I agree, the menu system was hacked together willy nilly a very long time ago, and sadly none of the people with access to the source code ever cared enough to fix menus properly.

Re: Working with Dragon Dictation

Maybe there's something in the settings of Dragon Dictate, or maybe someone else already solved the problem... Barring that, useful to know is that LC does not use the OS native fields, and that is probably what is confusing for speech to text software. Possibly you could file a bug report and/or fe...

Re: set imageData crashing on mac

Don't forget that DP means "developer preview" and is what other companies would call a beta release. A proper release can be expected within some weeks.

Re: Automatically Updating Stacks

There's no tutorial because this is a weird problem, some parts are trivial, and others are extremely hard, and also dependant on which platform you use. For example, often you can't save a stack nilly willy, like on mobiles there's specific places you need to use, or windows application folders whi...

Re: Running a full C program inside a stack?

Well in a sense externals are C code running within the engine. So if you can compile an external then that'd be what you want. Also, there's a lot of possibilities to talk to other programs, often making it unnecessary to actually include them, for example: shell() (as Klaus suggested) open process...

Re: dateitems strangness

Uhm where in the dictionary or other documentation does it say that dateitems is a good format to do math comparision with? If that's in there it needs to be fixed! remember that you can always convert from seconds to dateitems, after comparing them, if that is what you need, for example: on mouseUp...

Re: dateitems strangness

the problem is that dateitems is not really a number, so comparing them like a number can have weird results. In your examples, the actual compared numbers look like this. I haven't completely tested it, but I bolded them to show what I think is happening: 2013,11,4 ,0,0,0,2 -- this is bigger 2013,1...
