"Identifier 'ScriptObject' not declared"

Post by rkriesel » Wed Mar 08, 2017 10:47 pm

The subject error message appears in the 9.0.0dp6 Extension Builder on macOS 10.12.3 when compiling the following LCB library:

Code: Select all

library community.livecode.rkriesel.libFoo

metadata title is "libFoo"
metadata version is "0.0.1"
metadata author is "Dick Kriesel"

public handler foo ( )
   variable tScriptObject as ScriptObject
end handler

end library
I expected that line of code to work, because it's a quote from the dp6 release notes in section "LiveCode Builder Host Library" on page 19.
http://downloads.livecode.com/livecode/ ... 0_dp_6.pdf

Is the problem in my setup or in the compiler? What's the corrective action?

Hi Dick,

The ScriptObject type is implemented in the (optional) engine module, so you'll need to

Code: Select all

use com.livecode.engine
to be able to use that code.
