Re: storing hidden id with Option Menu

Pulldown and Popup Menu Buttons can have TAGs in LiveCode. Tags are placed after the "|" character and after an accelerator which follows a "/" character. So, just put this into a pulldown menu button: Choice 1/|monkey business Choice 2/|COVID-19 Choice 3/|LiveCode The user will see: Choice 1 Choice...

Re: Putting an app on a website

I had suggested a PDF where the pages were just images made from export snapshot. But I didn't know there was a requirement that the PDF be editable. So image-only PDFs won't work. Maybe the whole idea of sending editable PDFs to your client's clients is flawed as it opens up the possibility that co...

Re: Editing a PDF

Is there a way to generate a PDF with open printing to PDF that prevents someone from editing the PDF?
Instead of writing text/fields/etc. to the PDF, perhaps you could compose each page on a card the use SNAPSHOT to make a PDF where the pages are just images.

Re: Transparency to a button icon background

Great! I like your idea of vectors as the skeleton.
Since the whole thing is comprised of vector graphics it should be easy to scale without losing any fidelity, should that be necessary.

Re: Transparency to a button icon background

And I forgot to remove some development cruft from the behavior. It can simply be: on mousedown popup btn "theColors" at the clickloc set the backcolor of me to the hilitedtext of btn "theColors" end if pass mousedown end mousedown or for your use you wouldn't even need a behavior, just set the back...

Re: Transparency to a button icon background

Thanks.
I kind of 'reversed' the thinking.
Instead of PNGs with transparency sitting on top of the chart or carefully crafted GRCs, I poked transparent "holes' in the chart image and stuck crudely shaped, low point count GRCs behind the chart image.

Re: Transparency to a button icon background

Yet another way to color segments of that cardiac chart using crude polygons with few points.

Re: How to create an auto image slider with bullets

I see what you mean, from 6.x to 7.x, you'd have to do it more like... Expecting something authored in version 9.6.something of LiveCode to work completely transparently in version 7.x.x of LiveCode is probably expecting too much. I would normally agree. Unfortunately this particular issue is a bit...

Re: How to create an auto image slider with bullets

Not sure why, jiml, but it doesn't appear to work here (linux, lc 7.1.4). Could be either or both of those things. I wrote it in LC 9.6,2 rc 2. I vaguely recall an issue with older versions of LC where imageSource would not properly load images that were remote. One would need to download them firs...
