Re: Multiple resolutions, resize stack a solution

BTW if you use a PNG image for your background is there a way to get this to resize as well?

Re: Multiple resolutions, resize stack a solution

This is only 1 possible way to do it, there are more. Hello, There have been many requests on how to handle resizing of stacks for multiple resolutions and frankly I'm tired of answering them. Here is a script that will scale and position your controls proportionally. on mouseUp put the height of t...

Re: Can I design an app for iPhone 4 & worry about sizing la

Thanks - that scaling script is very impressive. I just created a screen with random buttons, boxes and some PNG buttons and they resize pretty well. I am extremely impressed. Square PNG Buttons scale pretty well, circular ones look a little rough around the edges but I see increasing the quality se...

Re: Multiple resolutions, resize stack a solution

That resizing script is pretty clever, actually it's pretty amazing that it's not built right into LiveCode, The ability to resize the text and perhaps keep the aspect ratio consistent by adding some padding to the top / bottom or left and right would be perfect ... no idea how to do that myself. Bu...

Can you create Android Widgets using LiveCode?

All I want to do is create a few buttons that sits on an Android Desktop and when you press it it either opens up another App or goes to a website

Is this possible in LiveCode?

If so, how do you go about saving a LiveCode project as and Android Widget rather then a regular App?

Re: How can I important Yahoo weather RSS Feed into LiveCode

Anyway I have to say thank you very much for all your help. I managed to create something which was able to read the weather data reliably, and do something with that data. That in itself is something I'd have struggled to do with any other kind of mobile phone app creation system. It was nice to cr...

Hi, We're now more than a year later and two books have appeared. The first book is about mobile development by Colin Holgate . The other book is Programming LiveCode for Real Beginners , by me, and is aimed at desktop development due to its nature. The two books together should be all you need to ...

Re: Searching the LiveCode Dictionary

BTW where do you go to find a PDF user manual for Android & iOS? I've seen some online lessons but sometimes you need a proper book. I just downloaded and searched the LiveCode user manual (Document revision 19 dated 2010.11.09) and there's not one word mentioned about Android, Mobile Phones, etc. I...

Searching the LiveCode Dictionary

Is there a way to search the ENTIRE LiveCode Dictionary for a keyword not just the command?

For instance I typed in the word "internet" into the dictionary and got back a single result

But what I'd like to see is a list of every command which mentions the word internet in the comments section
