Re: Arrow Keys that actually work in Livecode 8

The only reason I mentioned it isn't to use it as a workaround. More of an indication of HOW its broke. Yes, the card should receive the arrowkey, intermediary or not, and the dictionary agrees. (as does history) Going to add the information to the bug in hopes that it will help them narrow down the...

Re: Arrow Keys that actually work in Livecode 8

Its a found bug. Not sure the "adding an intermediary object.." trick is known yet though.

Re: Arrow Keys that actually work in Livecode 8

Interestingly, if you place a scrolling list field (or perhaps any field?) onto the card, and the select a line in the card so that the field has focus.. The arrowkey handler in your card starts working. Apparently the field receives the arrowkey just fine, has no handler so its passed up the messag...

Re: Basket help

Agreed! Nothing like jumping off into the deep end. Thankfully there are lots of lessons and tips and tricks re: the datagrid, but even so. If I can accomplish a task ANY other way, I do. (For most of my uses its way to complex to mess with) I use dataGrids, and am fond of saying I do not understand...

Re: Basket help

You should probably look at the lessons here: http://lessons.livecode.com/m/datagrid to get a better grasp of the datagrid. From your code, it looks like you're building an array, and specifying a key of 1 (myarray[1]) Then you set the dgdata to myarray. This overwrites the current contents of the d...

Re: Restricting resize of stack by aspect ratio

Heres my take on this.. Its set up to resize a graphic, but could be adapted for a stack. To test, open a stack and place 2 rectangles on it. Name one "maskRect' the other "dragRect" Group them and name the group "maskG", then paste the script into the group. local sSizing,sSlope,sMinSize on mouseDo...

Re: Odd behavior: Menu File->Open stack freezes my Mac

Do all of you who have this delay have an external usb hard drive? (mechanical, not just a thumb drive) IF so, I wonder if it is in power save mode, and the system hangs while it is spinning up.

Re: Button do not navigate

Are you sure you have a card named "about?" Right after you try to go to the card, put this.. answer the result If there is a problem when you try to go to the card it will appear in "the result" for example, if I try to go to a card that doesn't exist, the result contains "No such card". Hopefully ...

Re: [Help]Creating a clicker game

Nice site, good layout. Have you thought of putting together a book? (you can e-publish pretty easily, and/or let people pay for a printing if they want paper)

Does seem to be a great site to learn from.

Re: [Help]Creating a clicker game

Yes its possible. But heres the thing. You need to understand your own goal well enough to break the problem down into parts that you can solve. You said.. "This will only work for 1 auto increment, but there will be more for each button.." if each button gives the same amount per second, its easy. ...

Re: [Help]Creating a clicker game

I haven't poked through the whole thread yet, but.. Do you know how to save information to a file yet? Well first.. Look in the dictionary under "seconds" In your message box if you: put the seconds it'll pop out a number representing the current time in seconds. So yes, you would want to store that...

Re: [Help]Creating a clicker game

It sounds like you need to know the time of the last update before closing the app, the final amount, and any owned "factories". At which point, the next time you open up the stack, you read in the previous balance, figure out the time since last access and do the math to update your score to the cu...

Re: Why does shell with attrib does not work?

Theres another thing I do on windows that makes things easier.. put shortfilepath("D:\test folder\subfolder") into tPath at which point tPath has the old style 8.3 no spaces path to the file. merge can be pretty helpful too. If you have this string saved.. "attrib +h [[tPath]]" in a variable named t...
