Get Livecode to include the revXML external with Search

Post by doobox » Thu Jun 04, 2015 6:38 pm

Hi there,

Just wondering if anyone has any tips on forcing Livecode to recognise the fact it should be including the revXML external in the standalone OS X application when the Search for includes option is selected in the standalone settings.
I can easily switch the standalone settings to "select includes" in general section, but as this is a plugin I am building, I'd really like to take that onus off the user.

Currently The only xml related code I have running in the yet unfinished plugin stack, that gets made a substack of whatever main stack, is this :

Code: Select all

// GET THE APPCAST SHORT VERSION NUMBER
function getAppcastShortVersionNumber
   local tTree
   put revXMLCreateTree(sAppcastData, false, true, false) into tTree
   if tTree is not an integer then
      answer error "Failed to process xml file with error: " & tTree
      return 0
   end if
   if tTree is empty then
      return 0
   end if
   put revXMLAttribute(tTree, "rss/channel/item/enclosure","shortVersionString") into tShortVersion
   revXMLDeleteTree tTree
   return tShortVersion
end getAppcastShortVersionNumber
But this does not appear to be enough, to get Livecode to recognise it needs to be including the revXML external.

Just thought someone may have found a certain command, function or listener, that is part of the revXML api, that does indeed get spotted by Livecode and force it to include the external, during the standalone building process.
Kind Regards
Gary
