SVG Icons

Post by chipsm » Tue Oct 03, 2017 6:36 pm

Can SVG Icons be assigned to buttons?
And if so, how does on go about it?
I have not had any success with this.
Can one assign a script to a SVG Icon - because they are locked in the script screen with a password.

Normally you'd set the icon of a button programmatically like this:

set the icon of button "xxx" to id 1005

where 1005 is the id of your target image

if you try this with the id of an SVG icon widget it does NOT work.

indeed like richmond says.
but when you go to Sample Stacks in the Livecode top taskbar, then click svg and download SVG Powered Images
(a very very nice stack!)
Then use this as described for your own stack. Now you can import color SVG files as image.
then you can use the id of the image for your button, but...... you can not resize the image of the button as you would expect, like you can resize greatly with the image itself
:D :o :) :shock: 8) :lol:
