Re: Find whole or find word with apostrophe

Bernd is correct, I'm searching for a single S. The wholeMatches doesn't make a difference in my stack but caseSensitive does so I'll use that. I really didn't want to use a loop to find it. Thanks Bernd.

Find whole or find word with apostrophe

I'm having a problem with the find command when a field contains an apostrophe. A statement like find whole "s" or find word "s" stops at each 's (apostrophe s, as in it's) in the field. I'm searching an index for a line that has only an S in it. The only workaround that I can figure out is a loop t...

Could not access the Package Manager

I just downloaded the current Android SDK (21.0.1) and installed version 2.2 of Android using the Android SDK Manager (via Eclipse). I also created 2 virtual devices (running Android ver. 2.2) using the Android Virtual Device Manager from Eclipse. When I start the devices, choose one from the LiveCo...

Re: Formatted text not saved consistently

Thanks for verifying this Bernd & Jacque. I've had problems getting something that is consistently reproducible. I was working with my main stack today and locking the text in a card field caused formatting changes in 2 background fields. Do I need to be a member of the Developer Program to submit a...

Re: Formatted text not saved consistently

Thanks for checking that out Jacque. Sometimes it works properly for me too. Saving a stack, closing and removing from memory, and reopening the stack often shows problems that are not apparent immediately. Other than that, just changing text SOMETIMES causes formatting changes. I'm using LiveCode 5...

Re: Formatted text not saved consistently

I did create a simplified stack that has failed after a couple of edit sessions. It is possible to make a few changes and have it save correctly. It has 2 fields and the only scripts are in buttons for next and previous cards.

Formatted text not saved consistently

Is anyone else having problems with formatted text changing when a stack is saved? I have a stack with several fields that have a lot of mixed formatted text including plain, italics, bold, and different sizes. Sometimes when I make a few edits and save the stack, much of the formatting is changed w...

Re: mouseClick ignored

Thanks Jacque & jmburnod. It looks like wait ... with messages does what Jacque is suggesting without additional code. I was not aware of that option.

mouseClick ignored

I included code to cycle through the cards in a stack with a mouseClick to exit the repeat loop. It works fine on my Mac but when I try it in the iOS simulator or on my iPad, it never exits the loop. The code below is a simplified version that I put into a stack with no other scripts to make sure I ...

Re: Keeping iOS from going to sleep

I've been working on a similar app that records a GPS path at a user-specified interval. I've had settings/auto-lock set to never, which I assume has the same effect as iPhoneLockIdleTimer. The problem with this is that the battery drains rapidly. A 4S lost 25% of its charge in 1 hour of recording y...

Any good books about iOS

Does anyone have a recommendation of a good book about iOS development? The ones that I've looked at have a lot of pages devoted to other programming languages that wouldn't be relevant for LiveCode. I've been using LiveCode for Mac & Windows for years but there are lots of new challenges to creatin...

Limit to email length in Windows?

I'm trying to generate an email from within Revolution and it works as long as my message is short (magic number seems to be 1392 characters). This is running Windows XP (Service Pack 3) and MS Outlook (12.0.6504.500). For a short message, Outlook opens as it should. For a longer message, it appears...
