Re: Trouble with Shell Command

I also tried a .bat to .exe converter to create a test. exe to call from LiveCode. It works when I double-click the .exe in the Windows GUI, however, shell or launch LiveCode commands do not work with the "test. exe " either. For some reason the way LiveCode makes the shell or launch call is not all...

Re: Trouble with Shell Command

What is the string returned from the function? Unfortunately no string is returned when I attempt to run the test.bat file with the LiveCode shell command. There is just a blinking cursor, like it is waiting for something to happen. Does the command work in Window's shell? Yes, the output from the ...

Re: Trouble with Shell Command

Any way I can troubleshoot what is going on with the cmd shell? As far as I can tell at the moment, there is a bug with the shell command.

Re: Trouble with Shell Command

Is that second argument a file path? If so it may need quotes around it. I believe it is a command. If I try "C:/PROGRA~2/PICO~1/PICOS~1/Ps.com /a ?" I get the same non-result. With that command, it should output a list of commands. Also, you can hide console windows by setting the hideConsoleWindo...

Thanks for the suggestion. If I do this, the response I get is "The system cannot find the path specified.".

My script is something like this: put "C:/PROGRA~2/PICO~1/PICOS~1/Ps.com /a M.CSV?" into tCommand put shell (tCommand) When I run the script, the shell window opens, but there is no output (just a blinking cursor). I have to close the window ...

Re: Play sound with different pitches

That's too bad!! I know a lot of old stacks use this feature, including tone dial, so that would affect conversions to LiveCode. Can this please be added as a feature request?

Play sound with different pitches

I remember in HyperCard you could do something like "play boing" with other parameters to change pitch and note duration. Is there any equivalent way of doing this in LiveCode? So far I have a stack that can play sounds in a folder I specify, but I would like to also play the sounds at different pit...

Re: Cannot open 6.x stacks in version 7

No password protection. I downloaded what was recommended by the download splash page, 7.0.0. I guess I'll wait until 7.0.2 is stable before transitioning to the new release.

Cannot open 6.x stacks in version 7

I downloaded the latest version of LiveCode today and tried opening some stacks I was working on a few months ago and they could not be opened. The error I got was something it was not a stack. I downgraded to the stable 6.7.1 and was able to open them. Is there something I need to do to make these ...

Get the names of all object type within a group

I am trying to come up with a method to automatically get and send all the contents of different fields and store them in a database. It would be for something like storing persistent values based on who is using the program. I was thinking if I can put all the fields in a group, and get all the nam...

Web crawler

Is anyone aware of a LiveCode web crawler? I have a website I am interested in backing up and want to have it do things with the data it crawls, such as categorizing, tagging, storing in a database structure, etc based on the content. I don't have a really concrete idea of what it will do, I am wond...

Are you saying that you are able to do an INSERT in SQL... but you don't know how to do a...
