Re: Is it BAD to use preOpenStack & OpenStack?

Hi These messages appear in the handler list for Card Scripts. This is because these messages are initially sent to the first card when the stack is opened so they appear in that list. There is a bug report about this https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=22747 It is currently waiting for an ...

Re: Using Accelerometer outputs to change a field colour

Hi Glenn The R, G and B values need to be between 0 and 255 to be valid. Because the accelerometer values can be negative, and multiplying by 25.5 can create fractional numbers you will need to use the round and abs functions to make sure the values you use are valid for an RGB colour. put abs(round...

Re: what does myarray ["this stuff"] stands for ?

Hi Just chiming in with another resource. If you have been looking at the PDF User Guide I am sure you have found the Array Variables section but if not I think this is quite a good explanation, this is just in addition to all the other great resources that have already been shared. ----------------...

Re: Geocoding issue

Hi I have done a quick test here and there are a few things to try 1. Can you successfully get a value from a different URL? Could you try this test API? put "https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/todos/" into tURL put url tURL 2. Try url encoding the URL e.g. put urlEncode(laddress) into laddress re...

Re: Saving the scroll position in a scrolling list field

Hi Glenn

I think you might be looking for the vScroll property, rather than the thumbposition.

I hope that helps.

Re: Transparency to a button icon background

Hi

It looks like the Opaque property of your button might be set to true, try setting it to false. You might also need to set 3-D and Show border to false. It looks like you have already set Show name to false.

Kind regards

Re: Universal Import/Export Business (not James Bond Related)

I wonder if you might find the properties property useful. This is an array that specifies an object's properties and values. You could get the properties of the objects you are interested in, convert the array to something you can write out to file using arrayToJSON or arrayEncode and save it to fi...

Re: Debugger is deleting lines of code while debugging

Hi This is something I have not seen myself either. I ran it past the team and checked the Quality Control Center and we don't have any other reports. As Jacque said it sound like it could be an issue related to the focused stack or something similar. Is there anything common between the lines this ...

Re: Network Access for Standalone Applications

Hi If you want to try option 2, which is probably the simpler option, you would need to apply the suggested changes to the Android manifest template in the LiveCode app. You said you are on Mac so to find this file choose "Show Package Contents" on the LiveCode app bundle. The file you need to modif...

Re: Network Access for Standalone Applications

Hi This might be because of the version of Android your devices are using and the fact that the RESTapi is running http unencrypted. Starting with Android 9 cleartext support is disabled by default which prevents http connections. There is a bug report for this which includes some options for workar...

Re: Transferring an Array from desktop to mobile

Hi Glenn If the array data is read in from file you will probably want to include the initial version of the files in the Copy Files pane of the Standalone Application Settings. This will include the files in the standalone. You can then reference them using specialFolderPath("resources"). You can't...
