A Scrum Board written in LiveCode!

Post by keithglong » Tue Feb 10, 2015 4:52 am

Hi All,

I decided to take a quick "stab" at coding a basic "Scrum Board" in LiveCode. (You'll find the stack attached to this post.) This is a very basic attempt, so please bear with me.

Note: I wrote this pretty quickly, so there will obviously be things that could be done more efficiently, etc. Also, there will probably be some errors.

To use the Scrum Board:

- When you load the stack in LiveCode, go into Run/Browse mode (i.e., the top left arrow in the Tools Palette) to run the program.

- Left click on a "Sticky," and keep the mouse button down, to drag the "Sticky" around.

- Double click on a "Sticky" to edit the text. Click outside of the "Sticky" to stop editing.

- You can right click on each "Sticky" for popup menu options.

- When you right click on a "Sticky" and select "Add New Sticky," a new "Sticky" with the same color as the one you clicked on is created. However, when you right click outside of a sticky and choose the same option, a yellow "Sticky" is created by default.

- You can left click on the vertical lines and drag them to change the widths of the columns.

- You can double click on the column headings to enter custom names/labels. Click outside of the fields to stop editing.

- I haven't added any features for saving, so just save the stack to save your customizations.

That's about it for now! Enjoy! (And feel free to add additional features to the stack and/or to even use it as an actual Scrum Board.)

Best regards,

- Boo

Well done Boo! I've only been meaning to do something like this for the last two years - you've done a great job that will be very useful for a lot of coders :)

Kind regards

Dave

Thanks ! I don't know enough LiveCode to really be able to dig in to the inner workings of what you did, but I'm hoping as the class progresses I'll be able to contribute.

Hi All,

It was fun to apply my learning from the course into a real-world example. (I am being more consistent now with the naming of variables, the use of organized commands/functions, etc.)

Feel free to modify the stack and improve upon it. If I have time, I'll try to implement "drag resizing" of the "Sticky" fields, as well as the ability to save projects to file.

Best regards,

- Boo

Great - Love the download. Was looking for something like this to use for projects. Will be great to use for upcoming project during the Training.

Thanks again.

Hopefully, you can implement saving to a file and then retrieving the notes.

Thanks again.

Hi Ron,

Yeah, I'll try to add that soon. In the meantime, you can just save each project as a separate stack file.

Best,

- Boo

Keith,
I like your SCRUM Board.
It is ideas like this that sell LiveCode to me. I is my hope that ideas for projects like this would be the basis for a complete sample project that the LiveCode team would be willing to deliver to the "Create it with LiveCode" team and participants. I could foresee adding schedules, time codes, resources, contacts and Status along with Web access and emails to contacts.
LiveCode Team - please consider making this sample as part of a complete project tutorial.
I think that the other samples and exercises are great, but I think a complete project with some real meaning is something that everyone can get their heads around.
Keith, you have provided some inspiration to me with this sample and I intend to use this as a model for some of my projects.
Thanks.
