Recording sound being played

I have a stack that plays wav audio files, short clips that are played in an order determined by a string of text. I'd like to be able to record the sounds that are played into a new sound file. Format isn't important, just the act of capturing the audio. From what I can see, LC will record from pra...

Re: Forum search keyword restrictions?

Is it really a good idea for this forum's search feature to ignore the word "stack"?
I mean, c'mon! :D :roll:

Re: Scrolling group problem

Whoosh! That looks great, thanks Todd. It also looks a little tricky as you say, although definitely not as tricky as some things I've tried. :D
I'll give it a shot.

Scrolling group problem

I have a set of image objects that are generated, filled with image content and arranged by script. They're generated into a named group and the group is resized at the end to fit the card's height. It has a vertical scroll bar set. The group scrolls in the IDE (only when I grab the scroller BTW, no...

Re: App switcher/multi-tasking thumbnail

I'm not so surprised that it's an area of concern, but I would really appreciate at least knowing what things could be a problem when this limitation is removed. Then at least I'd be fully informed and can navigate my way around possible pitfalls on my own. Going further, offering this option as par...

Re: App switcher/multi-tasking thumbnail

To be fair I'm sure there are wrinkles to this that make the current setting the sensible way. Even I'm not dumb enough to believe I can walk into something like this and know better than the authors themselves. :wink: It would, though, be good to know what sort of things I should consider and look ...

Re: App switcher/multi-tasking thumbnail

Hah! Isn't LiveCode itself a 'use at your own risk' kind of thing? I mean, it's SO powerful it's like the phrase "with great power comes great responsibility" was made specifically for it. :D (Personally, I'd *much* rather see it as an option in the Standalone Application Settings window and have a ...

Re: App switcher/multi-tasking thumbnail

Great tip! It works well for me. It'd be *really* nice to see this implemented as an option in the Standalone Application Settings window along with the other items in the Requirements and Restrictions section. (I just peeked into a copy of the "revstandalonesettings.rev" document but decided to ste...

Re: the number of ACTUAL lines in a field?

Of course it's an easy one-liner too, no two-step process needed:

Code: Select all

put the number of lines of the formattedText of field "blurb"
Thanks!

Re: the number of ACTUAL lines in a field?

That's not quite what I was playing towards (a more accurate phrase than "working towards") but it's a great example for a related process. Thanks!

Re: the number of ACTUAL lines in a field?

Replying to my own question *again*... :D Seems that the textHeightSum tells me the total height of the lines of text in pixels. Finding the 'effective textHeight' of the field tells me the line spacing, I can work out the number of visual lines from that, with a bit of sanity checking to CMA. :wink:

the number of ACTUAL lines in a field?

I know I can get the lines of a field, which tells me how many return-delimited chunks of text there are. But is there a way to determine the 'effective' lines of a field? Say I have one string with no returns in the middle, but it's long enough to linewrap into three 'effective', visual lines. (A b...

HTML entity decoding

I'm grabbing text from a web page, and this often includes HTML entities, as in this string: "In this second chapter of Ayumi’s biography". I could simply set the HTMLtext of a field to the grabbed text, but it also contains stuff I want to keep, such as img tags. I could simply run it through...

Re: LiveCode vs Xojo licenses

With a one-year subscription license currently selling for $500, what would be a good price for an in-perpetuity license? May I suggest a slightly more open way of putting it? Simply: "What would be a good price for a non-expiring licence?" In case I'm starting to sound like a troll I'll reiterate ...

Re: LiveCode vs Xojo licenses

If you do intend to distribute it, you may want to consider how integrated your app will be with WordPress or the MySQL it relies on, since, like LiveCode and a majority of OSS projects, both are governed by the GPL. A good point. But all I'd want to lock away in that scenario would be the db acces...
