<sigh> I filed a bug report a while back. *Someday* it will appear in the dictionary. Right now it's in the release notes for (if I remember correctly) LC 5.x.

Well, I know I found a lot of what I consider interesting things by poking around in the code of older IDEs. Occasionally, you find interesting stuff in release notes, and once in a while through old rev articles. By far, the easiest of the old stuff I've poked around in that turned out to be revealing is the mail-list archives, which go back as far as Mc, but you really have to know a.) what your looking for, or b.) you have to have a *lot* of time on your hands :D

use

Code: Select all

palette stack tFilePath
instead of

Code: Select all

go stack tFilePath
Or if you don't want it to float over everything, use "modeless" instead of "go".

Also, in case anyone needs it, revEnvironmentCustomizationPath() is the path to the user extensions folder (My Livecode)

...and revEnvironmentUserPluginsPath() goes one level deeper to the Plugins folder.
