Re: Black screen on emulator Android OS/X

Thank you, I was able to get the emulator to partly work. I made several virtual devices: Android 2.2: Always launches my apps with a black screen with any test stack. I wiped the user data but it didn't help. I also deleted the VM and made a new one. It opens normally but all my stacks have a black...

Re: Look what they've done to my 'go card' 5.0.2

Test also with messages locked. That makes a big difference. Version 5.02 introduced some new features that may be slowing down the message path. Locking messages will tell you if this is the cause. The search handler could be much faster by using the native "find" command without going to each card...

Re: Issues with the IDE

I don't know if this was the original problem or not, but sometimes you can be in debugging mode and not notice (for example, you left a breakpoint in a script and forgot about it.) When the script breaks into the debugger, very little else is clickable. It will look like LiveCode is not responding....

Re: Resources not found

Good sleuthing. I guess my advice should have been: delete your preferences file. That usually fixes things like this, and I should have thought of it. Glad you're back in business.

Re: Buffering Images

The commercial license has no popup, it only does what you tell it to, and you can produce professional software with it. In addition, you can provide your own splash screen for iOS (Android doesn't support splash screens.) You have complete control with the commercial license. You also don't need t...

Re: Buffering Images

The problem is elegantly solved in the latest 5.0 version by using accelerated rendering, but if your sig is correct and you still use 4.0 then you don't have access to that. Check out the alwaysBuffer property of images instead. I think they are supposed to be buffered by default, but maybe somethi...

Re: Resources not found

Support doesn't work on the weekends, so if you just sent your reply give them a couple of days. When I click the Resources button in the toolbar I see the RR Resources stack, which contains various sample scripts and sample projects. You can open it manually if you need to. It is stored in the Live...

Re: Black screen on emulator Android OS/X

I have the same problem and have asked on the developer list for a solution. So far I have not solved it. My original setup used an old version of the SDK and it worked fine, but after I upgraded to the newest SDK I get the black screen with all test stacks. If I find an answer I will try to remembe...

Re: lot of crash, LiveCode 5.0.2 very unstable

Your experience is very unusual, there are many people using LiveCode with Lion without problems. If there is a crash you will of course lose any unsaved work, but I have never seen a saved stack lose objects, and I've never had to reboot my Mac. It's always a good idea to save your work frequently ...

Re: How often and how much it will cost me to upgrade?

You'd get a more definitive answer if you write to support. Updates in the past have averaged about once every 3 months or so, and if you are in the developer program, more often.

Re: start using?

I'd continue to use the "stack" syntax, it will work on any platform and is the correct form. If the file really isn't included in the build at all, the standalone builder may not be able to find it. Try putting the library stack into the same folder as your main stack and reselect it in the SB befo...

Re: Best way to save a backup of your stack?

I use Dropbox the same way too, but I just read last week that it only keeps the last 30 days of revisions. I hadn't known that.

Re: Performing a POST under iOS not returning a value?

That's kind of strange. The "OK" is what you usually get when the answer dialog is returning your button selection. You're calling the POST command correctly, and there isn't an alternative way. Rather than use the answer dialog, try a test stack that puts the return values into a field instead, jus...

Re: Can't get command q to work

Try adding this to your scripts somewhere, maybe in preOpenStack:

set the defaultmenubar of this stack to the long id of grp "myMenuGrp"

Re: Can't get command q to work

On Mac, if the editmenus is true, the group won't always catch the commandkey. The menu needs to be in the system menu bar to do that consistently. When I have the menus showing on a stack, I just use the mouse to test them.

If your menubar is in the system menu it should work.
