Re: LiveCode on Puppy Linux

Hi Neil, I reinstalled a fresh copy of Puppy Linux and followed what you did in your video but again nothing happened when I clicked the installer once I had changed the permissions to application. Is my computer (Pentium 3, 256Mb RAM) just too old? Or is it the version of Puppy Linux that I am usin...

Re: LiveCode on Puppy Linux

Hi,
Thanks, but I don't think that is the issue because I cannot even launch the installer (the app does nothing when clicked).
Does anyone know what is wrong?
Thanks,
Andrew

Hi Neil,
Thanks for your reply. I have tried changing the permissions to executable but the app still does nothing when run.
Any ideas?

Re: Grab an graphic along a circular path

Hi Bernd,
Thanks for the stack, it is almost what I am looking for. However, I tried to resize to elipse to a circle and the smaller graphic did not adjust to the new path.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Andrew

Grab an graphic along a circular path

Hi,
I have an small circular graphic that sits on the border of a larger circular graphic. I would like to be able to move the smaller graphic around by the mouse, but only move it along the points of the larger graphic. Does anyone know how to do this?
Thanks,
Andrew

Why is charIndex only for fields?

Hi, I am creating a program that makes use of the charIndex function. I looked in the dictionary and was surprised to find that the charIndex function only applies to fields. This means I cannot say: answer the charIndex of the last word of "LiveCode Forums", but I can create a field called "text" w...

Re: Not using quotes for words

Hi everyone, Thanks for the replies. Initially I was against replacing the quotes, but when I thought about it again I realised that using the replace command to replace all the double quotes (") with single quotes (') would allow me to go back to using "the number of words of", and it wouldn't affe...

Not using quotes for words

Hi, I am trying to use the "word" keyword, but I have run into a problem. I discovered that answer the number of words of (quote & "hello world") would actually answer 1, and not 2 like I expected. I looked in the dictionary and realised that this is intentional. This was a problem for me as I neede...

Re: Get all code in a HTML div

Thanks Hermann! You make using LiveCode so much easier.
I think that the HTML code I have been processing is machine generated, but just to be on the safe side I have added in your extra code.

Re: Other used apps

once in a while I still use HyperCard I sometimes use HyperCard as well. LiveCode may have more features, but I still prefer the layout of HyperCard. It is also fun to develop on a 1986 Macintosh Plus! I also use OpenXION for a few projects that do not require a GUI. For websites I use a mixture of...

Get all code in a HTML div

Hi, I have a large amount of HTML files that I need to process. One thing that I need to do is extract the code from a div. Every HTML file contains the div, which can be identified as it starts off with "<div id='wikitext' >'". Being HTML, the div will end with "</div>". However, it is likely that ...
