Re: Answer file with prompt?

Wearing a kilt is never ignored down here in London! ;)
But that's great. The styling of the prompt text is a bit weak and non-standard, but hey – it's a whole pile of better than nothing!

Thanks. :)

Re: Answer file with prompt?

I'm using LiveCode Community 7.1.2, the stable build. My code is simply this: answer file "Where is krpanotools?" The file dialog has no prompt or space at the top for prompt text. It looks like an evolution of the standard OS file dialog – although for my needs it would be a backwards step. :-/ EDI...

Re: Rotating an image changes its dimensions?

Hi all, I'm using 'rotate image 10 by -90' instead of setting the angle and it's working fine. I'm very happy to have helped unearth this bug/buglet, but re reporting it... I don't know if I could possibly explain it as well as recent posters have with those 'big bang' examples. (Which look spectacu...

Answer file with prompt?

Is the prompt part of the answer file command just history now, on Mac OS X? When I use this the file dialog that opens doesn't show the prompt text. That's a real shame, as it can be a useful bit of user prompting. Is there any way to achieve this?

Re: Rotating an image changes its dimensions?

Fascinating stuff. But I do think that some of the answers have gone off on a slight tangent (pun intended) that doesn't necessarily relate to the problem I observed. Setthing the angle of something to 1 will of course mess with its size, but that's not what I was doing. Try this: 1. Drop an image i...

Re: Rotating an image changes its dimensions?

this is due to rounding errors . The rotation is computed using trigonometric functions and rounded at end. This may lead to 1 pixel errors. There is no special handling of rotations of objects for multiples of 90 degrees. Okay, if you say so! :D ;) But seriously, I'm afraid I don't understand why ...

Re: Rotating an image changes its dimensions?

In the meantime it looks like "import paint" rather than setting the fileName of an image object might be a solution.

Re: Rotating an image changes its dimensions?

Heh. Dangit, not the answer I was hoping for! Okay, could someone remind me what the bug reporting URL is?

Rotating an image changes its dimensions?

I know if I set the angle of an image by some angle other than 90, 180 etc I can expect the size of the object to change. But when I set the angle of image 1 to -90 and test the width and height, it should remain the same but in fact it has increased by one pixel. Try this with a simple image object...

Re: Dimensions of groups

Bingo! Thanks Richard and Craig, that was it. I must have tried every other conceivable option but totally blanked on that one. :?

Dimensions of groups

I'm making a tool to put a selection of graphics in a row and export them. The total combined pixel width is over 18000px, and the height is 1536px. When I group the items and export the group it works well, except the group is 8 pixels wider and taller than the actual objects. The end result needs ...

Re: get URL odd behaviour

Interesting, that's a corner of the dictionary I haven't browsed through. I'm not keen on this as a solution, however, as it's a 'word' that rather undermines what I'm going to be saying about the "plain Englishness" of the language. :D Also because the dictionary says it's set to true by default, s...

Re: get URL odd behaviour

What's really odd is that I seem to have success occasionally, randomly.

I'm trying to build a simple tutorial so I can introduce some students to LiveCode tomorrow. Any comments on this? If I can't make this reasonably reliable I may have to take this a different direction. :(

get URL odd behaviour

This seems basic, but I'm getting an unexpected result for the particular 'get URL' line I'm trying. I'm calling the URL from Wikipedia's Random Article link: get URL "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random" If I put the result (because I wasn't getting the expected HTML code) I get this: erro...
