Re: How to determine the color of a pixel?

I have always wanted to have a function "the pixelColor", that would not require the actual cursor to be placed somewhere, only to specify a loc. Maybe we can propose an enhancement request. Craig Newman That would indeed be great! I've just scoured the LC dictionary for something like that and end...

Re: POLL: LiveCode Server deployment

I read in a 2008 post on this topic (back in the Rev day’s) that Dreamhost requires .cgi as the filename extension, but my tests with htaccess suggest this may not be restricted like that – or at least it’s trivial to work around.

Re: POLL: LiveCode Server deployment

Dreamhost is my preference, and the web root there is the domain name, for example thatkeith.com. So yes, it varies for each domain but in a logical manner.

I wonder how many folks who've had difficulty setting up LC Server would find it easy to upload and run a shell script on their server?
I would, relatively speaking. That sounds superb. I hope those things still work this long after you posted. :)

Setting up in shared host environment (Dreamhost)

I have a web host account at Dreamhost, and I’d like to get LC Server set up. I won’t be able to alter Apache of course, but it seems possible to do this with just the standard level of control. But the posts about this are 11 years and MANY versions old – are there instructions anywhere that are re...

Drag-drop image onto app icon?

I have drag and drop working fine for dropping an image into an object in my stack. But is it possible to set things up so I can drag-drop an image onto my standalone icon in the Dock (I'm on a Mac) and have it work just the same?

Read mail server

I haven't done socket stuff before, so I'm wondering if there are any example stacks around that I could learn from. I'd like to poll a mail server to get a list of recent unread emails, specifically so I can make my own alert if I get something from a specific mail account. (I actually did somethin...

Re: Can I run OS/Community builds on my own device?

I haven't check in a more recent Community Edition version. Hah! That would be a definitive answer – thanks! I downloaded LC Community 9.0.2 – and it looks like it IS possible to build for iOS with Community, although my understanding is that Apple won't allow the result to be on the App Store. I w...

Re: Can I run OS/Community builds on my own device?

But is it possible to test an LC app made with the Community build in one's own iPhone?

Re: Can I run OS/Community builds on my own device?

For iOS, Apple's limit on downloads conflicts with the terms of LC Community Edition's GPL license. Sorry Richard, could you expand on that? I'm aware of the general problem of Community builds being open source and the App Store requiring everything to be closed source. What's the download limit i...

Re: Can I run OS/Community builds on my own device?

I've not heard of Community Plus – I'll see if that's viable and a possibility for my face-to-face 'day job' teaching. But I'm also looking at writing a series of tutorials for publication in a tech mag, and that's the more pressing concern right now. I'm not trying to find a way for people to dodge...

Can I run OS/Community builds on my own device?

I have a LiveCode business license so I can (when I get my poor aching head around it) build apps for mobile devices in the closed-source format that Apple requires. But I'm considering teaching the basics of creating apps (both to my students directly and as a fresh series of how-to magazine articl...

Hi Keith I want to apologize if it was my answer that made you "feel being trolled". I don't think he was referring to your answer Simon. Absolutely right Bogs! :) Simon, it was purely the frustrating experience of having paths consistently lead me to dead ends that felt like trolling, not your inp...

Re: Common Android Deployment issues

It helped very much, thanks. The problem turned out to be what someone else in one of those threads experienced: an incomplete removal of a newer Java install in /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines. LiveCode's automatic finding of the JDK path had picked up the newer one. Once I deleted that and re-pi...

Re: Common Android Deployment issues

THANK YOU Klaus! :!: That page did help me get everything set up. I am deeply grateful. Right, time for me to try Android! :D EDIT: I spoke too soon: "There was an error while saving the standalone application could not compile service support class" http://thatkeith.com/temporary/LiveCode-Android-p...
