Re: LiveCode Server : list of web hosting services

I am hoping that server is going to get more attention in the near future. I worry that currently it's not getting the same attention that desktop and mobile (esp. mobile) are. I keep finding bugs and inconsistencies between the server engine and the desktop engine that make it difficult to code, si...

Re: LiveCode IDE for IPad?

Oh, and to answer your licensing question - as far as I know the commercial license allows you to have multiple copies around, on whatever platforms you want, so long as only 1 instance is in use simultaneously per license. And of course, as long as you aren't working with protected stacks the commu...

Re: the variableNames errors on Windows server 6.1.1?

That means they should show up on line 4 of the output from the VariableNames: From the dictionary: The variableNames function returns a value consisting of four lines: 1. Parameters passed to the current handler (including leading '@' for parameters passed by-reference) 2. Local variables created i...

Re: the variableNames errors on Windows server 6.1.1?

This also give the same 500 error:

Code: Select all

<?lc
put 1 into aNumber
put the variableNames into aVariable
put "<html><body>This is a test -" && aVariable && "</body></html>"
?>
It works fine if you comment out line 3, so I definitely think that the variableNames is broken on windows server 6.1.1

Re: the variableNames errors on Windows server 6.1.1?

The variable names function should not error out, even if there are no variables - it should return four blank lines (which would all show up in one line in a browser) as it does on the desktop. Getting an error 500 is bad, since it doesn't mean there was no response or output from the server, it me...

Re: LiveCode IDE for IPad?

I doubt there will never be a full IDE for any iOS device, because of Apple's restrictions on what is allowed into the app store. Your best tablet bet is probably something like the Surface Pro, or some other full Windows tablet, though since the IDE is not optimized for a touch interface it will pr...

Re: LiveCode Readability and Comments

In my own experience Livecode is readable enough to figure out *what* I am doing, but I still need a lot of comments to explain *why* I am doing it. A lot of the stuff that I write involves taking data from external sources and massaging it, so I find that I need a lot of comments to prod me into re...

identifying an array

Is there any way to determine if a variable is an other than checking to see if the keys of a variable are not empty? I couldn't think of one. One thing I have learned though is that there is usually a better way of doing *anything* than the only way that I can think of to do it.

Re: "tags" in Dictionary

Bjorn's tool is great, and I have been using it for a while. I am just thinking more as a nice addition to the standard dictionary for the (hopefully) huge number of new users that the open source version of livecode will have it would nice to have an additional layer of curated taxonomy on top of t...

the variableNames errors on Windows server 6.1.1?

Can anybody duplicate this? the script is just <?lc put 1 into aNumber put the variableNames ?> It reliably results in 500 internal server error with Windows server engine 6.1.1. with the entry below in the Apache error log: [Mon Oct 14 10:31:47 2013] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] Premature end of scri...

"tags" in Dictionary

It would be really nice if the dictionary supported some kind of subject or topic tags. Something that would allow me to see all the language bits that are associated with a topic. For example if I go to the dictionary and search for "array" you get back encode and decode array - useful, but it woul...

Re: return user to original webpage

Thanks! Putting it all into a single script with conditionals worked perfectly. I will have to read up on the location header and your other suggestions, since they seem like they would be useful, but I just don't understand them well enough to get exactly what is going on. Thanks for the pointer th...

return user to original webpage

Okay... So I have an lc script that a user goes to that presents them with a list of editable fields showing data pulled from a database. The user can edit the info in the fields and press a button, which submits the data to another script via POST. That script then adds/deletes/updates the database...

Re: Using Merge function with arrays

Figured it out - put parentheses around the array reference and it all works just fine. So: INSERT INTO idmap_systems (system_uid, name, system_id, mgr_ldap_uid) VALUES ('[[($_POST["system_uid"])]]','[[($_POST["name"])]]','[[($_POST["system_id"])]]','[[($_POST["mgr_ldap_uid"])]]') is the correct tem...
