Re: 'Server' without Apache etc. - basic nOOb question

I think you might run into problems when trying to run LC as a Windows service, but I don't really have any experience with that. LC is either a command line application, or a full fledged app that has a full GUI. If you can incorporate either of those into a Windows service, then you're golden :) P...

Re: Points in a regular polygon

I can easily return the points of an oval as the corner points of its rectangle, but that doesn't gain you anything that the rect of the oval gives you. Obviously i'd be interested in the actual points that draw the oval. So basically a full fledged freehand polygon, using whatever resolution LC us...

Re: Points in a regular polygon

That's so cool to have! Now do it for rectangles, rounded rectangles, and especially ovals :P On a slightly more serious feature creep question, It could theoretically be useful to set a single point of a regular polygon, then have LC calculate all the other points according to the settings of "the ...

Re: Peer to Peer Networking Stack

Sadly, I'm not sure what you are asking about. As I said, step 1-4 where working for me easily, my router is doing sub-option 2, so i add one to port 2 for the "next" port. my problem is in the last step even when using known and forwarded ports . In other words, when I leave out the complexity of s...

Re: Peer to Peer Networking Stack

This discussion made me try hole punching out. I followed the instructions given on the wikipedia tcp hole punching entry. Of note is that in theory a lot of router have uPnP enabled by default, and it'd be probably considered friendlier/less intrusive if that would be used... I have no idea how tha...

Re: Text colour and groups

I'm pretty sure it is, what makes you think it's not a problem with text property inheritance?

Re: Antialiased vector graphics in LiveCode 6.5.1

i suggest you enter this as a bug report, as it's probably a problem with the new graphic engine that they jsut introduced, changes are high that they actually fix it.

Re: IPv6 support?

You try it out yourself of course! first you need ip's to test with. Get a known, working ipv6 as well as an ip v4 address (Google is your friend): https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using test 1: try to find out their domain name, with the hostAddressToName() function: 8.8.8.8 --> ...

Re: Text colour and groups

Text styles are inherited from the field, the group it's in, the card they're on, and so on. So if you have set the textcolor (yes it's just a synonym), of the field, then it won't matter what the textcolor of the group is. In addition single chunks of text also can have styles. For example if you s...

Note on version 1.2.1 problem: 'old license, get a new one'

As of version 1.2.1 , ChartsEngine uses the automatic licensing system supplied by RunRev. If you have a license, and when you start ChartsEngine it says "Old License. Get a new one.", then the licensing has run into a problem. Follow these steps to make sure that ChartsEngine works properly: log on...

Re: How can I stop my game from stalling?

I'm not sure what you are asking, but for a program to behave differently depending on some state, you'd need to use an if statement, for example:

Code: Select all

if the visible of button "click me" is false then
-- do nothing while invisible
else
-- do stuff because it's visible
end if

Re: Water?

I doubt anyone did a physical simulation of water-visuals in LC, because the amount of animated objects is too limited when using this technology. However if it's only about presentation, then the best way is to use a pre-rendered animation. So simple show a movie, animated gif or a button of which ...

Re: Integrating Parallax for mobile app game

I'd say you need to give more details about what your goal is.

Parallax in side scrolling games is achieved by having several "layers" that move at different speeds, the further 'back' the slower they move.

Re: SPlit word into list

There is no built in way to split by char into an array, so you'd need to use a repeat loop: repeat for each char myChar in myStoredWord put 1 into myArray[myChar] end repeat Note that it's probably easier to use a different approach then an array, depending on what you actually need to do. For exam...
