LiveCode Messaging Demo

Post by dave.kilroy » Wed Jun 03, 2015 5:35 pm

I developed a Messaging demo app for a recent LiveCode workshop I organised with @THINQTANQ (http://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.ph ... 65#p126665) and am releasing it now as a learning resource (it's definitely not a finished app)

It's functional but is missing lots of polish (it had to be doable for participants to make in a day) - and this is what it looks like:

This is a very bad introduction video I recorded for it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RetBteT2OfA

And this is where you can get it's Learning Resources Folder (current version is 0.0.4, I'll keep updating this link with the latest version):
LearningResources.zip
(27.31 KiB) Downloaded 230 times
Most of the code for the GUI came from Ben Beaumont's 'nine-way-stretch' stack (http://livecode.com/livecode-7-0/) and in the way I organised the stack (layered, API) I was attempting to channel Ian McPhail.

Please report any bugs you find and/or any extra functionality you add to it here so we can all see

EDIT: the stackfiles in the Learning Resource were made with LiveCode 7.0.5 - but if you want to use an older version of LiveCode I think it would all work except for centerRect and iconGravity (both introduced in 6.7) that are used in the behaviour button...

Kind regards

Dave

Thanks Richard, a pleasure to contribute as I have read and downloaded so much from others...

Forgot to say - I've just uploaded version 0.0.3 which is available from the same download link above (I'll keep updating that link rather than adding new ones...)

Hi all - just realised that I never updated the demo LiveCode Server script in the 'LearningResources.zip' archive since I moved to www.hostm.com! So if you wish to continue messin' about with this messaging demo stack please download it again from the first post in this thread

I saw this video on YouTube and downloaded the stacks. I took a quick look at the complete stack and wondered if there had been any more work done on it.
There are aspects of the app that might fit with a social app I have been working on.
Thank you.
