Livecode upgrade popup

Post by cusingerBUSCw5N » Fri Apr 26, 2013 4:12 pm

I get a popup at the bottom of my screen informing me that Livecode has a newer version. I want to know if that is done using Livecode.

I want to remind my users of events coming up, and this feature would be cool. Do you know how it is done? - - - and do popup blockers stop it?

Thanks

hi cusingerBUSCw5N ,
Do you know how it is done?
No but I can see a way to do that
1. Read an installation history file from the server at preopenstack
2. Compare it with the characteristics of the current stack
3. According to the result ask for update or not
Best regards
Jean-Marc
