Re: Need a different MobilePick than the generic LC picker. - Solved

I have never used "Command".
I have looked in dictionary, but not much description.
How is it different from "On xxx" (ex On OpenCard)?

Re: Need a different MobilePick than the generic LC picker.

Sounds Good!

I will try it when LC releases the update to support Xcode 12.4.

Thanks so much,

David

Re: Need a different MobilePick than the generic LC picker.

Davidv,

I don't think "'Run’ [Run/Off/Auto selector]: bad connection" will fit on iOS picker.
However, I will try it when LC supports Xcode 12.4.

Thanks,

David

Re: Need a different MobilePick than the generic LC picker.

That sounds great! I had thought about something like that, but in the past I have experienced issues on Android platforms. On Android, when the user goes to scroll a group of selectable items, the item is selected during the scrolling process. With iOS, the selectable item is not able to be selecte...

Re: Need a different MobilePick than the generic LC picker.

Yes, I know the given text for the mobilePick is unusually long and really goes beyond what a mobilePick was intended for. It is for an educational app that I am working on to teach electrical troubleshooting skills. After the user analyzes the circuit, the user will choose one of the items from the...

Re: Need a different picker than the generic LC picker.

I should have given more info on the "picker". I am talking about using: mobilePick optionList1, initialIndex1 [, optionList2, initialIndex2 ...] [, style ] [, button] [, view] It does not support multiple lines or smaller text so that the long text of: 'Run' side of Run/Off/Auto selector switch has...

Need a different MobilePick than the generic LC picker. - Solved

The generic LC picker does not allow me to include enough text for the user to make the proper choice.
I need a picker that would support the following text:

'Run' side of Run/Off/Auto selector switch has bad connection

What are the possible options?

Thanks,

David

Re: Drop Down Menu will not reopen at top of menu items

Thanks for trying.

It is really not a big deal, since the final application will not be using that kind of UI.

Drop Down Menu will not reopen at top of menu items

Drop Down Menu will not reopen at top of menu items. The first time I open my drop down menu, the menu items appear from the 1st to the 5th. I select the 10th menu item and exit the drop down menu. Now, I reopen the drop down menu again and the menu items no longer appear with the 1st menu item at t...

Re: Is it BAD to use preOpenStack & OpenStack?

"No. What brings that question to mind?"

preOpenStack & OpenStack used to be in the drop down menu of stack handlers, but for the last few versions it has been removed and replaced with "startup".

Is it BAD to use preOpenStack & OpenStack?

Do bad things happen if stack uses preOpenStack & OpenStack in the current version of LC?

Any estimated LC release date for Xcode 12.4?

There has been no new LiveCode releases since January 12.
Surely it is time for a release for the updated Xcode.

I have been waiting for more than 4 months for an updated LiveCode that supports the later Xcode versions.

Surely someone must know of a tentative release date by now?

Thanks,

David

Re: Using stack "On startup" does not work.

I don't use fullscreenmode in the IDE.

The only reason I use IDE is to test the mobile app. Right now I can't run the iOS simulator until LC version 9.6.3 comes out to be compatible with my Xcode 12.4
