Re: The chosen folder is not a valid SDK

UPDATE: Panos posted a workaround to the bug report linked in the previous post, which lets you use Android Studio 3.6 with LiveCode for Android development. Basically v. 3.6 no longer installs the Android command line tools by default, as previous versions did. You have to install them manually.

Re: The chosen folder is not a valid SDK

Success! It appears that LiveCode Android mobile support is not compatible with Android Studio 3.6. I uninstalled 3.6 and reinstalled 3.5.3 and it works now!

I'll file a bug report. I'd be surprised if I'm the only person having this problem.

Re: The chosen folder is not a valid SDK

Curious. My setup is the same, except I have v. 3.6 of Android Studio. I'm going to try dropping back to 3.5.3 and see what happens.

Thanks, Matthias!

Re: The chosen folder is not a valid SDK

There is something definitely wrong with this. I spent most of the afternoon trying to get LiveCode 9.5.1 to recognize the Android SDK with no success. I completely uninstalled and reinstalled both JDK 1.8 (jdk-8u241) for Mac OS, and Android Studio and SDK (v. 3.6). I still get the error message "Th...

Thanks for posting your solution, @Zood. One year on, I had the same problem, and your solution fixed it.

Re: SVG widget guff

I updated by SVGIconPicker stack with some UI niceties:
- Down arrow key in filter field selects next line in icon list
- Up and down arrow keys in icon list change selection
- Cmd/Cntl + F selects filter field
- Shift + Cmd/Cntl + F clears filter and selectes filter field.
- Tooltips added.

Re: SVG widget guff

I've often wished for a icon list picker that could be filtered. Scrolling through all of the icons is too busy for my eyes. :shock:

UPDATE: Deleted version 1. See updated stack below, which has UI goodies added.

Re: POLL: LiveCode Server deployment

I thought that it was precisely the encrypt/decrypt functionality that does not exist in LC Community. Are you saying that it is only the ability to password protect stacks and scripts that is exclusive to the commercial versions? The ability to encrypt scripts in stacks is unique to the proprietar...

Re: POLL: LiveCode Server deployment

I store the credentials in text files, where I have written out text encrypted with the encrypt command in LC desktop. Then I read the encrypted text in on the server, using decrypt. It sounds like there may be other options. Maybe I should look into using shell calls to encrypt/decrypt. That shoul...

Re: POLL: LiveCode Server deployment

This usage scenario would make for an interesting talk at the LiveCode Conference. That's an interesting idea, David. I'll think on that. I consider myself sort of a self-taught novice-to-interemediate when it comes to writing middleware. But that's one of the stories that we can tell with LC--how ...

Re: POLL: LiveCode Server deployment

BTW, my use of decryption means I need to use Server Commercial version. Being able to embed credentials in protected stacks is certainly a nice convenience, but not absolutely necessary. The most common middleware for DB access is PHP, which has no common means of protecting scripts. Instead, they...

Re: POLL: LiveCode Server deployment

I guess I'm closest to B. I run LC Server on several physical and virtual servers that are wholly owned by my department at the university. That means I can configure them for all or just selected virtual hosts on each server. Typically I will modify the host config file for only those virtual hosts...
