Re: Screen Size

Yes, I've done the basic course with the TickedOff stack, but that would be a lot of resizing script for me because I have a lot more buttons and fields. I found a stack called GeomScript.rev that simplifies everything and is a good alternative to the geometry manager or so they say. Only it doesn't...

Re: source code for royalty-free standalone

Yes, thanks for reminding me about external resources and junk. If someone has the standalone, they won't be able to see the code. Only someone with the LiveCode program will be able to see that, correct? I'm not sure how to include the stack. Will it be one of those stacks that you add as a substac...

source code for royalty-free standalone

I have been advised that I must make my source code available to sell a royalty-free standalone. I am supposed to include a link within your app (in the about box or a similar place) which goes to the full source files for the app. However, I don't know where my source code is or how to get it and m...

Re: Screen Size

Well, that looks like a very helpful stack. When I make a stack with it, however, it seems to make a copy of itself nothing more, just without the buttons. Perhaps I need to have the mobile app-making software? In the meantime, I'd like to find the best screen size for an app that will fit on the sc...

Screen Size

I'm making a fairly simple app and eventually I will want to make some mobile device versions. Before I get to that point, I wanted to know what screen size for my desktop application is best to start with so that converting to the smaller-screen-size mobile apps will be easiest. I want a rather lar...

Re: Export a pdf from Runrev

Simon,
Thanks for the tip. I checked. No PDF in my Studio version but there's a check button in the new LiveCode, so that says it all.

Re: Export a pdf from Runrev

Simon (or anyone), You know I was trying the lesson on this at: http://lessons.runrev.com/s/lessons/m/4071/l/29177-how-to-create-pdfs-using-livecode I uploaded their stack but whenever I executed the printcards handler my runrev Studio complained that it couldn't find the handler. I tried it with th...

Re: Save Card Window as Graphic

I see. Well, one day I will compile a "toolbox" of fun buttons that do any easy thing. Simple scripts like the one you gave me instead of the kind of hard to understand stuff in some of the documentation.

Re: Save Card Window as Graphic

I just want to save the card screen as a graphic. Like a screenshot of what's on the card without the menu or anything. (The documentation read: "The revBrowserSnapshot command takes a snapshot of the page currently being displayed in the specified browser object.") So I tried it. I tried other ways...

Save Card Window as Graphic

I'm putting this into the basic area because I've looked through the forum and can't get something basic to work. I simply want to save a RunRev PAGE/CARD as a graphic. I have used snapshot to do some other things, but I'm spending forever getting this simple thing done. FROM DOCUMENTATION: local tS...

Re: Etiquette Question

I'll have to look into that. I shouldn't be such a difficult thing. I was hoping it would be just like what I had done. I got PP to read the text. I got that text into powerpoint. I hoped I could do it with an image as well. By the way, I received a message saying that there had been a reply to my o...

Re: Etiquette Question

Well, actually I put quotes around the word "paste" because I didn't do anything with the clipboard. I don't know how to paste from the clipboard into another document. I wrote this and if you use tabs as subheadings you get a powerpoint presentation with multiple slides with headings subtext and su...

Re: Etiquette Question

Well, it shows what I know. I thought that as I learned more I could get RunRev to do the things I imagined it would be able to do. The script I have does, in effect at least, create a PP doc and "paste" text into it and the result is a pp presentation with many slides with headings, text, and subte...
