Where is the list of all libraries?

Post by greg falda » Wed Jun 07, 2017 11:43 am

Dear All

LiveCode has a set of libraries originating from Revolution - names of commands start with rev...

In the dictionary, I can find for instance the following commands, with associated libraries (see: associations) :

revQueryDatabase – database library
revStopAnimation - animation library
revStopPreviewingVideo – video library
revPrintText – printing library
revStopSpeech – speech library
revCreate tree – xml library
revXMLRPC_addParam – xml rpc library

But does LiveCode have:

1) A list of all libraries listed? (those from Revolution, and possibly others, if they exist)
2) Documentation for each library - with commands of this library explaned

Thanks in advance.

best

Interesting question. Here are all the libraries one might include in building a standalone:

Animation
Browser
Browser (CEF)
Database
DataGrid
Font Support
Geometry
Internet
Printing
Revolution Zip
Speech
SSL & Encryption
Table
Video Grabber
XML
XMLRPC

No idea if this list is complete.

The list Craig put up can be found under File -> Standalone Application Settings -> Select inclusions on the general tab.
2) Documentation for each library - with commands of this library explaned
You can also go to the Dictionary, and under "Library" see all the various libraries listed and use for their components (Lc vers. 6 through 7 it is on the left panel, in the new dictionary under 'filters') .

Can't be positive that it is exhaustive, but certainly looks to be so.
