Hi,
Is there a list of SC commands, properties etc that are supported in Livecode anywhere?

cheers

Hi John,
Sorry, I don't know a such list.
I left Supercard 5 years ago (v. 4.6 I believe) and I translated supercard projects to LiveCode stacks.
The better way for me was to consider the supercard project like a prototype and that has been a good way to clarify my thinking
Many supercard scripts work fine but I often can do the same by a simpler way with LiveCode
Best regards
Jean-Marc

Hi Jean-Marc,
Thanks. I am not really trying to import to recreate sc projects, but I am a lot more familiar with SC, so when I am trying to find the way to do something the SC term comes to me, I try it and it may not work. Would be handy to have a dual language dictionary.

Cheers

John

The Supercard-supported terms are in the dictionary, so you can usually just search for those and see what the LiveCode equivalent is, or if it can act as a synonym. If it isn't in the dictionary then it isn't in the language.

Thanks Jacque,
That makes sense. It looks like no aspect property for images.

Update, looking through the dictionary crop would seem to do the trick.

cheers
