Re: how to keep app as running process?

LiveCode will need to make some changes to do this, but here is how it is done. 0. Add custom external binary to run as a process 1. Open compiled APK binary 2. Modify manifest to change invoker intent 3. Make the intent as a process that calls the external binary then keeps following the invocation...

Re: Android performance (images)

Three solutions to be had here: 1. Change your image to a smaller size. 2. Change your image compression method: PNG 8-bit if it uses only full transparency, PNG 24-bit if it needs feathered transparency, JPG if it is a photo 3. Use accelerated graphics and smaller processing tiles for compositor, p...

Re: Set phone to silent/vibrate mode?

Not impossible at all, LiveCode is new to mobile so not everything needed is yet in place, and most of the LiveCode focus seems to be on iOS. I suspect we'll get access to those things in an update. For serious system-level functionality, you can make a custom external in your favorite language to d...

Re: Respecting ringer/media volume?

Discovered mobilePlaySoundOnChannel is respecting android device's Media volume level, not the Ringer volume level. This is why it still plays with full loudness even when the user has their phone set to silent. I have confirmed that iphonePlaySoundOnChannel does not work for android, tested on mutl...

Re: Set phone to silent/vibrate mode?

Can't be done with LiveCode. LC only knows its own channel volumes that it creates. To control the audio settings of the android system, you need to interface to the android java API. You currently cannot do that with LiveCode to my knowledge, but you can write an extension to another app you write ...

array keys as variable names

I have a multidimensional array that is extremely long and prone to syntax errors. I would like to take the keys at a particular dimension and make them locals for processing, and store their array value as the value for that variable. The problem is that I am creating variable names from variables ...

Re: GPU Rendering for Android

It has come to pass. Android 4.3 has been announced with OpenGL ES 3.0. When should we expect OpenGL support for android rev engine?

Re: Disable the scroller when scrollGroup is hidden

I don't have this problem on android via LiveCode 6.1. When the native control (not the content/group) is hidden, no scroll bar.

Re: Facebook integration - using Andre Garzia approach

1. Yes it can be extracted. The risk of the secret key being extracted is that a motivated hacker could use the key to enumerate user accounts or perform a brute-force attack to gain access as your app to your oauth providers. However, embed is probably fine for a medium/low-profile application. 2. ...

Re: Respecting ringer/media volume?

I would have presumed there would be an accessible pre-made channel like "system", from which we could derive the volume settings via something like mobileSoundChannelVolume("system") to find out if the user has muted the device in a movie theatre. This is an absolutely essential function for any ap...

Respecting ringer/media volume?

mobilePlaySoundOnChannel doesn't seem to respect the system's volume settings, playing at 100% volume when the system is set to mute or vibrate. Is there a way to get the system volume setting or force the playback system to respect it?
