Livecode for Retina Display

Post by granata » Sat Dec 04, 2010 4:55 am

This seems like a pretty basic question and the fact that it has not been brought up here before makes me think that I may have overlooked something obvious.

If I'm using Livecode to develop an iPhone App for the iPhone 4 as well as non-Retina iPhones and iPods, what dimensions should my stack be? Do I need to somehow tell the stack to load UI images for the smaller and larger displays (replicating the iOS SDKs @2x.png model)?

There's a section in the iOS Release Notes about this - talks about 'device resolution'. ... -4_5_2.pdf

You do have to do the resizing yourself at the moment, setting images as appropriate. To turn 1-1 pixel mapping use the 'iphoneUseDeviceResolution' command.
