Introspection possible?

Is there a way to check if an object responds to a message before you send it? I'm thinking of building a library, and I'd like to be able to have the library call functions in the calling object. A delegate pattern, if you will. Cocoa has a "respondsToSelector" command that you can call before you ...

Re: Which version of live code to start with?

Usually I would agree, but isn't the Unicode transition a large, backwards compatibility breaking transition? By that I mean moving textual data in and out of Livecode will change, so socket or file access will be changed. So if I build on 6.6.4, won't I have to go back and rewrite my outside interf...

Looking for a LiveCode Developer

So, as the topic says, I'm looking for a good Livecode guy or gal. Here's the deal: We are planning on writing a cross platform app (I understand that Windows Phone is not yet supported by Livecode, but not sure it matters). iOS and Android first, possibly using the same model code for a mac/win app...

Re: Is there an updated User Guide?

Actually, I had a question: With the new website redesign, is the User guide available anymore? I couldn't find any links to it. I realize it's rather out of date, but it does provide a comprehensive overview of coding in LiveCode.
