Re: Fun With APNG & LC

In fact, I posted this stack long, long time ago, and back then discovered that hashing some kind of data produces wrong results. Using the crc32b produced by the built-in Livecode function "compress" is more reliable. Hi Al, Thanks a lot for this information! Out of curiosity, I did play for a cou...

Re: Fun With APNG & LC

To explain the process at little better take a look at this diagram. It may help understand where I'm going with this. I believe now I'm on the final hurdle. The creation of the new hash based on crc32b() is the only hold up. I don't think Livecode have a function for it. I found on the forums a crc...

Re: widget Signature to SVG pathdata

Thanks for your help all. I though there would be a straight forward way to do it and that maybe I was missing a command. That is not the case I suppose. :( Saying that your stack is a great start to getting this working. It seems just the width and color data is missing for the svg widget. I'll see...

Re: Options for export snapshot on Livecode Server

<trim> but I still find v7 more snappy. However, It still needs to be addressed as my rig is an intel i7, 24gb ram and SSD NVMe M.2. If this rig can not run the latest Livecode IDE with all features enabled smoothly on windows. Then L.C need to look at what is going wrong here. Sorry for continuing...

Re: Fun With APNG & LC

The idea is to extract the frames from an APNG image when imported into a Livecode img control. The APNG files act very similar to a gif and have a .png extension. The frames are imbedded into the image. See the image below. I'm about 90% there. But there is still some issues with the corrupted fram...

widget Signature to SVG pathdata

Hi All,

I want to copy path data from a signature widget to a SVG widget. Is this possible? The path data appear to be in a different format. Is there a different process to follow?

Thanks

Re: Options for export snapshot on Livecode Server

You should find general field performance the same or better. The Script Editor has some new features which are very CPU intensive (auto-complete, real-time error checking, etc). Turn those off (Edit menu IIRC) as you should see some snappy performance again. Yep that was the consensus of the group...

Re: Options for export snapshot on Livecode Server

I definitely agree with you Richard. The new features are excellent and well needed. I suppose my main issue in using the latest and greatest v9 under windows is I get a very sluggish development experience. When I type the text takes a couple seconds to catch me up (and I'm not the fastest typist)....

We could also discuss 8-track cassettes, Betamax video cassettes, Video disks, those wierd CDs containing movies in an odd format from Taiwan I used to buy under the counter in Sharjah in 1989, and so. I like this one and can help make my point. GIF = VHS Tapes APNG = Betamax Betamax was always the...

Re: Options for export snapshot on Livecode Server

This is excellent news Richard. Thanks for updating me. I'll give it a go today. Got to love Livecode. I normally use 7 and below and once in a while try 9 on some projects. Thanks again.

Fun With APNG & LC

Hi All, During lock down I thought I would have some fun in my spare time and see if it was possible to create an LC APNG player. I have found an online APNG decoder and the APNG spec which I was following. However I have had minimal success. I can export the images but they are corrupted. I'm think...

Options for export snapshot on Livecode Server

Hi there, I hope you all are safe and well. I have been looking into what I can do with the Livecode server offerings and I have been trying to find a way to export a picture of a stack/card. I understand "export snapshot" is not available on LC server is there any other options available? Many Thanks

Re: Saving Datagrid Form Field Inputs

(As a possible solution for anyone finding this post) I resolved this issue by using the openfield message instead of mouseup etc in the row behaviour script. I followed the message watcher and the openfield message was getting called instead of the expected mouseup/mousedown etc.
