I've just figured this out, so I am posting this to save others from wasted time. I have a datagrid form and the top field varies in height. I wanted to put a button underneath the form. So here's how I did it. In Row Behavior, under Layout Control, first you set wher eyou want the top fields. In my...

Re: Datagrid form formatting driving me crazy

OK...I solved a bit of it. I am posting the remainder on a separate post so it is simpler to understand. First, one of my lines didn't have an "of me" on it... set the top of field "priority_label" to the bottom of field "date_added" of me + tverticalspace ...so when I put "of me", it started to beh...

Re: Datagrid form formatting driving me crazy

I realized that the Date added field is acting this way because I set it for a specific location - 200 - so it consistently is in the same place, regardless of whether the form is open or closed or scrolling. But I did that because when I set it to be between the button and the date, it disappears! ...

Datagrid form formatting driving me crazy

I have been trying to format a datagrid form with variable height for hours without success. The fields keep disappearing or their location is all over the map. I have attached a sample stack so you can see the problem. First, I would like the gray background that is on the top line to expand when t...

Livecode upgrade popup

I get a popup at the bottom of my screen informing me that Livecode has a newer version. I want to know if that is done using Livecode.

I want to remind my users of events coming up, and this feature would be cool. Do you know how it is done? - - - and do popup blockers stop it?

Thanks

JDK Installer

My computer had a virus and in the process of fixing it, it wiped out my JDK files (When you used the start menu and clicked on Android SDK, it had "empty". Because of this, my Livecode won't run in test mode. So I am trying to reinstall JDK - unsuccessfully. First, I installed Java jdk1.7.0_21 http...

speeding up opening

My app takes forever to open. I did some tests, with "answer" - putting tags on the stack level on preOpenStack - right at the beginning - and it takes 42 seconds to get there. I don't understand what would be going on BEFORE preopenstack that would slow it down so much. Once it reaches the preopens...

Re: Buttons with unwanted box

Nope....put my happy face on too soon. set the acceleratedRendering of this stack to true Causes my app not to open in Android. Goes through the entire open script - but then stops - and doesn't open anything. Take out the code and it works. So...we're back to choosing between scrolling and colors?

Re: Buttons with unwanted box

Here's a zipped stack showing the exact problem - with the bad code in it. You can see when you open it up (on an Android) the field background color is all messed up. Then when you click the button and see things moving, it's a real mess - because the background isn't white. When the background is ...

Re: Buttons with unwanted box

Aha! I created a small stack and didn't have the problem. So I ripped apart my app and found the culprit: if the platform is "iphone" then set the compositorType of this stack to "opengl" else set the compositorType of this stack to "software" end if (put in my stack script) I added this when I was ...

Re: Buttons with unwanted box

These stupid boxes of unwanted color are going to drive me nuts. I just added some fields with background color - and on the Android, there are boxes of unwanted color wherever there is an empty space - - i.e., if the text is: John Brown went to the cafe to have hot chocolate and cookies. the box wi...
