Webinar Session Questions 30/04/2014

Post by LCNeil » Thu May 01, 2014 1:45 pm

Hi All,

Here are some responses for questions asked in yesterdays webinar-

How to add a group to a group?

There are a few methods that you can use to do this-

1) using relayerGroupControls

Something like the following script will allow you to add two separate layers into the one layer-

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
   put the layer of group "groupTop" into tWhatLayer
   set the relayerGroupedControls to true
   set the layer of group "groupOvals" to tWhatLayer +1
   set the relayerGroupedControls to false
end mouseUp
You will need to adjust the group names to ones you are using

2) Using copy

You can also use copy to insert a group into another group. This will leave the original group in place, so you may need to delete this-

copy group "groupOvals” to group "groupTop”


How to automatically reposition controls if one is deleted-

The following script has been taken from the distribution section of the property inspector. I altered it to only work on buttons but you should be able to adjust it for all control.

Simply add this script to a button called “test” and add multiple buttons to your card. Pressing the test button should distribute them evenly

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
   
   -- repeating through your card to get long id's of all buttons
   repeat with x = 1 to the number of buttons of this card
      -- want to ignore button that triggers the script
      if the name of button x is "button "&quote&"test"&quote then
         next repeat
      end if
      put the long id of button x & cr after tObjectNames
   end repeat
   put the number of lines in tObjectNames into tNumberOfObjects
   put 0 into tWidth
   
   --where the magic happens, and positions the buttons equally accross the cards
   if tNumberOfObjects < 1 then exit to top
   repeat with i = 1 to tNumberOfObjects
      get line i of tObjectNames
      add the width of it to tWidth
   end repeat
   get line 1 of tObjectNames
   put word 5 to (the number of words in it) of it into tCardName
   put the width of tCardName into tCardWidth
   put (tCardWidth - tWidth) / (tNumberOfObjects + 1) into tPerSpace
   put tPerSpace into tOffset
   repeat with i = 1 to tNumberOfObjects
      get line i of tObjectNames
      set the left of it to round(tOffset)
      add the width of it + tPerSpace to tOffset
   end repeat
   
end mouseUp
The recording of yesterdays webinar should also be in your codingschool accounts.

Kind Regards,

Hi Neil, you had brought up a webpage listing various ways to test on iOS devices (the last one being TestFlight). Could you post that link?

Thanks,
Greg
