Change File Names in Folders

Is there a way I can get LiveCode to not only display file names from folders as I do, but also to change the actual names of files within a folder? I have a list of files like this that is quite long: 8925277_orig.jpg 2380696_orig.jpg 3075177_orig.jpg 982577_orig.jpg The numbers are not helpful to ...

Re: Garage Band Files don't get listed

My username is a hokey stage name because I sing western tunes along with 20s, 30s, and 40s jazz standards. I don't really like the handle (too redneck for me) but it's seems to have stuck. I've done a lot of hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon numerous times on numerous trails: the Hermit, the...

Oh, I now see that Richard Gaskin has also touched upon the issue I mentioned at the end of my response.

Re: Garage Band Files don't get listed

Thanks for clearing this up for me. I appreciate your taking the time to test this for me. I now remember that there are folders that look like files. In fact, I remember now that standalones in Runtime Rev are apps that are really folders too. I didn't think about that and so I wanted to ask about ...

Garage Band Files don't get listed

Curious about this and think I'd learn something if I had the answer. .jpg, .mp3, .pages, .doc ETC. all work in this script but .band files don't. Curious to know why. on mouseup put empty into tfiles set the folder to "/users/tomcole/desktop/Garage Band Folder" set the folder to folderpath put the ...

Re: Multiple Icon Images in buttons in Background Fill

You know I think it is a good idea for everyone to remind people of the difference between those developmental dp programs and the stable ones. On my Mac there was an update feature in the dock and it happily asks if you want to upgrade. I didn't know those upgrades weren't the best versions to use....

Re: Multiple Icon Images in buttons in Background Fill

Thanks. Your response helped. I don't have a CLEAR button, but I right-clicked the color there and got a reset to default option. I'm not psychic, so I didn't think to right click in that little square. Need a CLEAR button here I think.

Re: Multiple Icon Images in buttons in Background Fill

No because it makes it transparent instead of the default button color. I just want to toggle a color on or off. Funny; I'm getting two kinds of object inspector views of buttons as in this graphic, and if I click on a graphic the card or stack inspector comes up. Maybe something's going wrong. I'm ...

Multiple Icon Images in buttons in Background Fill

1. Suddenly I have multiple images for the icon chosen in the background fill for a button. 2. When choosing a background fill color (or pattern) there seems to be no way to change it back to the default with no color or no fill. Ah, now I see an Icon option that addresses the problem in # 1, but I ...

Re: Permissions error on save with Studio 2.8.1

my buttons when clicked do nothing They must contain quite complex scripts then. I am still using stacks I wrote in RunRev 1.1.1 with LiveCode 8.1.8 without a hitch. The ONLY problem I ever had was converting my Devawriter Pro source files from 4.5 to 7.1 because of the change in the way Unicode gl...

Re: Permissions error on save with Studio 2.8.1

A lot of people use LC daily on macOS, so I'm sure we can help you past this hurdle. Permissions errors in any app are usually a result of attempting to write to a file in a protected location. What is the full path where you're trying to save the stack file? Thanks for replying. I'm not getting pa...

Re: Permissions error on save with Studio 2.8.1

I guess that would be true. However, if I cannot solve this permissions problem, what's steps would be easiest to upgrade to the newest version so it will work properly on my Imac? Which LC version might I begin with to begin the process and where can I get the earlier version?

Re: Permissions error on save with Studio 2.8.1

I run Mac OS 9 as "Classic" both on a G4 macMini and on a G5 iMac. If you want to "port" a stack authored on RunRev 2.8.1 to something a bit more up-to-date (say LC 8.1.8), then I would suppose one of the ways is to move it "up" by easy stages via 3.0, 4.0, 4.5 and so on and tidy up glitches as the...
