Re: Images going black

Glad it worked.

Maybe you can change the default color profile in GIMP?

Kind regards

Re: Images going black

You could also try to upload a zipped Gimp png that is not working and a zipped Seashor png that is working. I could have a look at them.

Kind regards

Re: Images going black

Richmond, could you have a look at the color profiles of the different images? If you select an image on a Mac and then do command + i you get the info. There should be a section that indicates which color profiles those images use. If those are different from the Gimp vs Photoshop/Seashore then you...

Re: Where to store text lists?

Welcome to the forum Frank. As far as I understand you want to store text in Livecode that the user can not access. If the text is prepared before building the standalone and does not change later on then storing the text in a hidden field is perfectly alright. If you want to store text between runs...

Re: Rotating a graphic 360degrees in 60s

Bernd. So much fun. There is an issue with an ellipse, in that the rotational speed of the hand is greater near the major axis and slows as it approaches the minor axis. I am going to try to find a way (just because, since I do not know if the OP cares about it) to make the circular second hand act...

Re: Rotating a graphic 360degrees in 60s

Craig, That moves very smoothly. Nice. I occured to me that a clockface could be oval. For that I did a version that dynamically changed dashes to let the seconds hand keep the same distance from the ellipse. That however ran into the 1 pixels problem (rounding problem) and one noticed a change in d...

Re: Rotating a graphic 360degrees in 60s

Since we are both still wasting time on this, however much fun it is, I had hoped that creating a very large regular polygon of 3600 sides would give me 3600 points, and I could get some serious resolution without having to make them trigonometrically. Lazy, you know. But only irregular polygons ha...

Re: Rotating a graphic 360degrees in 60s

Craig, talking about kludges... put 600 into semiMajorAxis set the dashes of grc "hand" to the width of grc "ellipse"/2 - 35,250,0,250,0 lets me hide a 600 pixel long line graphic except for the first part. So it seems that the limit applies to the dash interval not the absolute length of the hidden...

Re: Rotating a graphic 360degrees in 60s

Good to know. I found in my use case a diamter of 200 pixel gives a very nice resolution for the angle and makes for a smooth motion. So in this case I would never hit the 250 limit. I did find that "dashes" do not like decimals, only integers. Had me scratch my head when dynamically adjusting "dash...

Re: Rotating a graphic 360degrees in 60s

Craig,

here is a way to hide part of a line graphic that does not use inks. It is a lot easier to handle.
I use "dashes" instead.

Re: Rotating a graphic 360degrees in 60s

I haven't checked whether it/they have any similar techniques, look/feel or smoothness, but maybe one of Hermann's clock gizmos has something to investigate? Eg http://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?p=146898#p146898 Those are LCB-widgets and it is easy to do this kind of stuff in Livecode Builde...
