Looks interesting, but I don't do dropbox :) wanna attach the stack to the forum by any chance?

The stack is too big to attach to the forum owing to the 2 large desktop pictures embedded in it.

Send me your e-mail address and I'll send you a ZIP file.

Hi Bogs,

no need for that stack, you simple set the backrop to the id of an image!
...
set the backdrop to 1003
...


Best

Klaus

Thank you both for that :)

@Klaus - Thanks, I actually did learn about that and made a few demos allowing the backdrop to be changed either by image stored on another card, or from files in (you'd be so proud) "Special Folder Paths" you've mentioned to me on numerous occasions :mrgreen: I actually mis-read the description and thought he was giving an example of 'texturing' a backdrop, my bad :oops:

@richmond62 - You already have a working email address for me, silly, less you scrapped the Yahoo group notification you talked about here :P
p.s. pm me if you did heh.

Indeed "bogs": but one's mind wanders off into the mystical regions of LiveCode :?

Anyway, Klaus has put you right already.

:lol: I apologize for not knowing how or what yahoo did with my end of the email :oops: and I promise not to feed Seymour's man eating plant heh.

I'm afraid I probably made another 'faux-pas', when I didn't see [pm] under your name on the side there, I sent my email to yours. Hope thats not a capital offense :)

Nice website btw :)

Currently working with a backdrop can be a bit of a pain in the b*m as
it is a bother if one wants to rapidly turn on or off the backdrop.

So, here's a mockup of Richmond's Latest Fantasy:

Sadly (or not) I can only get solid color backdrops on linux.
