Re: Moving Speed out of GPS data

This is possible now. I do not know which version of LC getting the speed was released. Sample code: on openCard if the platform is "iphone" then mobileStartTrackingSensor "location", false end if end openCard command locationChanged local tSensorDataA, tSpeed --RETURN A STRING WITH THE CURRENT LATI...

Re: Moving Speed out of GPS data

The speed value that comes from mobileSensorReading("location",true) is accurate for meters per second. To get miles per hour, multiply the output by 2.237. To get kilometers per hour, multiply the output by 3.6. I ran this in my car. I found the output to be spot on. But, there is a bit of lag befo...

Re: Read from a Spreadsheet?

This is a general response considering the information presented. Feel free to write back if you want to hone in on these or other ideas. All spreadsheets can do I/O as a CSV. You could import the CSV into LiveCode and parse the data into a dataGrid or field with tab stops. Or, you could import the ...

Re: Analytics with Livecode.

LiveCloud has mentioned something about developing analytics using their own proposal, but I think they stopped development. The subject of this same post goes back to 2011... Hi Trevix, I am one of the developers for LiveCloud. I decided to pop in here and respond since our tracking feature was me...

Re: Permanent ID function (same as FileMaker Pro)

Thank you for going into such detail Mark T., very informative and quite a lot of work to get too. My pleasure. Pssst...i have a secret. Most of this stuff was developed when I was in my 20s. When you are that young, you view the whole world and infinite time is in front of you. At my current age, ...

Re: Permanent ID function (same as FileMaker Pro)

Going back to the original request (which was for some means of validating a user's right to run an app) and obviously what @mtalluto goes to great lengths to do - maybe I'm being slightly naive here, but how does some sort of hardware based unique id offer any better means of validating a user's l...

Re: Permanent ID function (same as FileMaker Pro)

Mark, I'm actually curious about the rest of the points brought up as to why this type of thing shouldn't be included in Lc, so (I hate to burden you with time consuming questions but...) 1. How many Os'es supported by Lc do you deploy too ? 2. How much time (if you remember and the answer to 1 is ...

Re: Permanent ID function (same as FileMaker Pro)

Correct. We capture memory, graphics card, hd, motherboard, MAC address and a few other tidbits about the user. Can you share how you obtained the motherboard ID? I am sharing this information with the caveat that this code is not productized for other developers. We have a series of utilities that...

Re: Permanent ID function (same as FileMaker Pro)

I would be interested to learn more about the specifics of a scenario where hardware identification is truly needed. We do this for our visual acuity testing system and medical records system. The reason was that we were experiencing a high level of theft. I am one of those rare people that do not ...

Re: mobile-desktop sharing

Hi Bogs,

I found myself catching up on things in the forums on this beautiful weekend. I felt guilty, not jumping in here and saying hello. Glad to see you are here as well.

Re: mobile-desktop sharing

https://livecloud.io/ could be useful here. LiveCloud is a LiveCode native solution. It can sync data between your app and the cloud with a single line of code: get cdb_sync("*","tableName","cloud",false,false) I am one of the developers on the project. It could be argued that I may be biased. Plea...

Re: LiveCloud

I'm not seeing the advantage of Livecloud over sqlite for local storage. Not even over the use of your own DB which you might have on your own webspace. Also it's not bad to learn the basics of sql. They can help, because it's used almost everywhere on databases. Also many like to know that their i...
