revTinyIDE fix for resizing code peek window

Post by adxsoft » Sun Aug 11, 2019 10:12 am

I have recently found revTinyIDE (https://github.com/AndyPiddock/TinyIDE) and tested on MacOS for LC8.1.8,9.04 and 9.5.0 and its a very handy plugin which reduces the screen clutter as promised .. its also developed solely in LC so its customisable too!.. so a big shout out to Andy Piddock for his excellent work.

I only found one issue when resizing the 'code peek' window .. I have provided a fix for this in the 'Issues' area of Andy's github site.

I thought I would post the fix here for LC Developers who are using revTinyIDE

Cheers
Allan

=======================================================================

CODE PEEK WINDOW CRASH WHEN RESIZING

This is fixed by opening file 'stack_revTinyIDE_35305.livecodescript' in the folder 'TinyIDE-Behaviours (in the plugins folder) in a text editor and replace all the code with the following code
then save the file. The problem was there were references to cards in the resizeStack handler that were not qualified correctly e.g. a reference to crdMain should have been made to crdMain of stack gStackName.

Note I have only tested this fix on MacOS but I think it will work without any problems on Windows and Linux.

BTW Its a very nice solution and as promised I get heaps more screen real estate plus as its in Livecode I was able to modify revTinyIDE for myself by
- adding Inspector and Code buttons to my copy of revTinyIDE.
- having Sublime Text come up when editor icon is chosen


Very happy camper!!

Hi Allan, Many thanks for noticing this and the solution.
This has now been updated on GitHub.

I have not made any updates to TinyIDE for a while so if you have any suggestions please post them to Issues.

Again, many thanks.
