Re: Fixed Yet? Three Questions

Thanks, FourthWorld. I think I understand what you're saying about destroyStack. Let me restate at least one question still unanswered, though: Must "delete stack" still be used instead of "close stack" to ensure immediate stack closure? Thanks, Steve P.S. I never have success searching this forum b...

Standalone data saving - best file format?

I've got a Mac/Windows standalone that saves data to .rev stacks (or stack files??). I believe this sort of file is old and probably not the best for saving standalone data. What IS the best method/file format? I need to save not only parameters but an undetermined number of sets of quiz questions c...

Fixed Yet? Three Questions

I've got questions about 3 long-standing issues I've had with LiveCode. Specifically, I want to know if these things have been "fixed" over the past decade or so. In some cases these may not be actual bugs, so "fixed" may not be correct. Let's just say I've got 3 questions, all about the way my app ...

Re: Mac App Store Rejection

AppWrapper is giving me an indication of App Store rejection due to Quicktime. I'm using LiveCode 7.1.0 build 10043. Do I have to download LC 6.something to get around this?

Re: Dictionary Button Doesn't Work?

You were right, SparkOut. The stack's name is "revDictionary", by the way. Once I set the loc of stack "revDictionary" to the screenLoc, it was way too large, so I couldn't drag or resize it. I had to select View >> LiveCode UI Elements in Lists then do Object >> Stack Inspector, which gave me the I...

Dictionary Button Doesn't Work?

I've been away from LiveCode for a year or so and just realized that in the latest version (7.0.6), the Dictionary button doesn't work. I saw a post with a link to an online dictionary. That's good, but shouldn't the button work? I'm sure this has been reported an answered, but since the forum searc...

Menu Builder Help

My app is being rejected from the Mac App Store because there's a "File" in the menubar, but nothing happens when you click it. Nothing should be in the "File" menu because Quit moves to the application menu. How can I hide "File" in the menubar? I've tried putting this in the on preOpenStack script...

Re: Delete Stack Different in LiveCode 6?

Thanks, Jacque. However, I found in troubleshooting my original problem with "close stack" in LC 5.5.4 (see linked post in in this topic's first post) that "close stack" doesn't reliably close the stack in a timely manner. Probably it does in most cases, but for me it wasn't, and it wasn't because a...

Re: Delete Stack Different in LiveCode 6?

Note to Forum Moderators: I somehow managed to post this in the wrong place. I meant to post it in the Intermediate >> Talking LiveCode forum, where I believe it belongs. If you'd like to move it there or just delete this post and let me know so I can put it in the right place, that'd be just fine. ...

Re: Strange Crash [Please Ignore/Delete This Post]

Update 10/5/13: I apologize for making this post as the error, though I never pinpointed its cause, was fixed after I took care of some obvious loose ends I'd carelessly left unaddressed in my script. I very much value the help I get from this forum and regret having wasted people's time with this p...

Re: Delete Stack Different in LiveCode 6?

Thanks for the help, Ken. The stacks I'm trying to "delete" (close) are in fact open, as this LC 6.1.1 screenshot shows. Notice the Project Browser. 2013-10-05_11-49-17.jpg If I open the same LiveCode project file in LC 5.5.4, it opens just fine with no errors and being as fully functional as ever. ...

Delete Stack Different in LiveCode 6?

Only a couple months ago, I was having trouble with the "close stack" command because it doesn't always close a stack immediately. I posted "Close Stack Doesn't Close Stack?" (http://forums.runrev.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=15561) and from people's helpful replies, I learned that I should use "d...

Re: Strange Crash

pWhichLine doesn't seem to be the problem. Look at the line right above the one that crashes. It uses pWhichLine to set the highlighted line in the field, and it has done so properly. This is why this crash so mystifies me. Nothing seems to be wrong. I suppose that's the way it always seems until yo...

Re: Strange Crash

The value of pWhichLine depends on which line of the left field (screenshot) the user clicked on. It's 4 in the screenshot case.

What's the QCC and how do I report my crashes there?

Re: Strange Crash

Thanks, but that's not the problem. My variables contain the missing words you've added (see bottom of screenshot). You're right in saying it is confusing, though. I will try taking the variables out and explicitly naming the card and stack in the troubleome line. I doubt it will help since that lin...
