Re: date and time of image files

Sorry I don't have time to explain more right now, but checkout the function for 'detailed files' or 'long files' in the dictionary.

It will give you all the data you need. :)

Re: filepath differences IDE vs standalone

I didn't understand what could have changed, because one (if not more) of my apps uses a similar reference, so I tested this in LC 5.5.5 and LC 8.1.3 (rc1) and they both gave exactly the same results as far as I can see, maybe we work differently. Anyway, it's not too difficult to work the path back...

Re: Cannot add iOS SDK

The correct version of Xcode for LC8.1.2 is Xcode 8.1. It is usually listed in the release notes. If I remember correctly LC8.1.2 was released a day or two before Apple updated Xcode, this constant upgrade cycle has caused me (and others) a few headaches in the past, so now I always back up Xcode to...

Re: Issues changing layers

I suspect the objects you are trying to re-layer are in a group(s), if that's correct you should ensure 'Select Grouped' is deselected in the menu bar and click on the group, then click 'Edit Group' in the menu bar, now you should be able to change the object's layer within the group. When you've fi...

Re: How to force the script window to be placed in front

It seems this is different between LC 7 and 8, so this should be reported as a bug.

You can report it here: http://quality.livecode.com

If you don't want to report it, just let me know and I'll submit a report.

Re: launch url "mailto:" does not accept characters like...

You can force the Bcc in revMail by using the href attribute &bcc=, try this…

Code: Select all

   revMail "someone@example.net","me@example.org &bcc=secret@example.com","My Subject Here","Test üö"
Works for me in LC 7 and 8.

Re: Accessibility through voice as input

On a Mac you can use Apple Dictation to input text into a field, then just use the textChanged handler to monitor the field for changes and use a switch handler for the decisions.

There is a sample stack attached to demonstrate.

Re: codesigning problem after update to OS X 10.11

I was seeing the same warnings on OS X 10.11.4 with LC8.0.0 (dp16) and Xcode 7.2.1, but the app still built and loaded onto my iPad OK, so I just ignored the warnings until I had time to investigate, however the fix you posted works fine for me.

Thank you.

Re: Automatically printing .pdf

You didn't specify which platform you are on, but on a Mac you can just drop the PDF onto the print queue window, or if you keep your printer icon in the dock you can just drop the PDF onto that. Or you could make a simple Automator Folder Action to print any document dropped into the folder. I real...

Re: iOS SDK and how to get it?

The iOS SDK is part of the Xcode software and it's only available for Mac, so if you are Developing on PC you will need to install virtualization software like VMWare or VirtualBox. Once you have Xcode installed on a Mac go to LC Preferences > Mobile Support and click the 'Add Entry' button then nav...

Re: LiveCode on ElCapitan

Just one caution, LC8 is not considered as stable, so you should back-up your current work (in which ever version you currently use), then save regularly in LC8.

Re: LiveCode on ElCapitan

I have recently upgraded to El Capitan. Livecode is crashing both in the IDE and standalone when I click on a menu but take the mouse out without making a selection. It happens every time. Has anyone else noticed this behaviour. I lost a stack of notes in a medical application I use because of this...
