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...

Re: Stopping an object script containing wait

Cool. Adding "exit to top" worked great. I also added "with messages" to my wait code.

Can you explain again why the send command is better than the wait command? Thanks

Stopping an object script containing wait

I have an object script that uses wait 1 seconds - to turn on and off various fields and buttons - (to create a presentation). If someone clicks a cancel button (which does NOT send someone to another card) - the script continues to run. Is there anything that I can put in the cancel button script t...

option dropdown and mobile devices

I was ALMOST so excited. I discovered the dropdown button! I almost love it. Unfortunately, it doesn't work on a mobile device. Which makes it rather useless. Am I missing something? I looked around on the Internet and couldn't find any reference to the fact that they don't work - or do work on mobi...

Re: Buttons with unwanted box

OK. I don't know why but this is fixing my problem: Somehow it is the location of the button that triggers this problem. If I move the button a little bit down, it doesn't create the extra boxes. So, I changed the code from set the top of button "local_help_button2" to the bottom of button "contacts...

Re: Buttons with unwanted box

I just set the background color to pink

set the backgroundcolor of button "local_help_button2" to "pink"

and it now has two lovely light purple boxes in a pink button (on Android only).

Buttons with unwanted box

I have weird problem going on with my buttons on Android. My buttons are basic text with a background and a dropshadow. They are fine in Windows and on IOS. But when I put them on an Android - IF the button text isn't wide....it creates a box with a different color - sometimes on one side - sometime...

Re: Gnome dancing victory dance - datagrids and url

VICTORY! The gnome is conquered. Two issues were going on here. First, my stupidity. When I did the test stack, there are TWO places in the standalone settings that you have to check for internet access - on the main settings AND in the Android settings. So that's why it wasn't connecting to the Int...
