mergPopToast

Post by Armenhui » Mon Oct 31, 2016 2:39 pm

Hi all,

did anyone know mergPopToast external is only for Android? i used it for iOS but it does not work.

Here is my example

Code: Select all

mergPopToast "List shuffle is turned Off","short"

Any suggestions will be helpful.

I don't believe toasts are supported in Apple's APIs; if memory serves they're not even described in the iOS HIG.

So it supports on iOS?
But I used it for iOS (activate mergPop exnertnal from inclushions panel) but no any results.
I use LiveCode 8.1.0 stable version.

Or did you know are there any similar solution for iOS?


Thanks

I had intended to express the opposite when I wrote "I don't believe toasts are supported in Apple's APIs; if memory serves they're not even described in the iOS HIG."

I'd have to review the iOS HIG to find out what they recommend as an alternative. Been a while since I've read it so I don't recall offhand.

Hi Armenhui - yep Monte made mergPopToast as a 'fun piece' as part of mergAndroid http://livecode.com/android-surprise-package/ - and 'toast' is just for Android as far as I know...

EDIT: just noticed you also referred to mergPop - mergPop is a different kettle of fish to mergPopToast - mergPop only works on iOS, mergPopToast is part of mergAndroid and only works on Android
"...this is not the code you are looking for..."

@Armenhui

Yes mergPopToast is just a command of mergAndroid (which only people that had mergExt access have at this stage). Toasts are not a feature of iOS. I would suggest you can make something similar if you want using a group that you show and hide though.
