If developing on my desktop, what is the best way to test whether the field will actually scroll? It doesn't scroll in run mode. Will it scroll if I test in the simulator (maybe using arrow keys)? Do I have to deploy a test version to my device to test the scrolling? Thanks for you response, it was ...

Browser Widget instance

I created a browser on a card with the browser widget in LC 8.1.1

Works fine.

I want to export a picture of the web page.

I tried using the "revBrowserSnapshot" command but I do not know how to identify the "sBrowserID" parameter.

Can anyone help.

Thank you in advance.

touchstart command

Will the "touchstart" command work with the new iPad pro?

I want to make a livecode app that allows the user to press buttons in a stack by touching the screen.

Thanks in advance.

Chat Room for Faculty

I am an on-rev founder as well as a long-time Livecode user. I am interested in building/buying/using a simple application where retired faculty could simply chat with one another. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Tab in Datagrid after closefield editor

I have a datagrid table. You can tab across each field in a row. I edit a field in the table and then execute a closefieldeditor to update the information in my SQL database. It works fine, except after a closefieldeditor call concludes, no cell in my datagrid is selected and I cannot tab to the nex...

autofill

It would be nice to add a feature that allows you to automatically enter a username and password directly into a webpage in your stack.

Re: Help with selecting text in a field

I did try it (before your suggestion) but could not get the contents of a data grid cell to wrap around.

I am trying to think of some creative coding that would let me select the wrapped text in my one column scrolling list field.

Thanks for the suggestion anyway.

Re: Help with selecting text in a field

If I use a data grid, is it possible to have a one column grid?

Can the data in that one column wrap around in the cell?

Is the cell than selectable?

Thank you.

Help with selecting text in a field

In a normal list field, you can select a line of text and identify the line selected. I wish to do the same thing under slightly different circumstances. The field will be on an iPhone. The field width is not wide enough to display what is contained in a line, so I turned off list behavior and dontw...

Run a stack from a webpage

Since these forums seem to indicate that revlets are a thing of the past, how can I take a very simple, one card stack (that simply reads data from a mysql database into a datagrid ) and have it accessible via the web?

When designing a stack for use on a Mac or a PC, a laptop or a desktop, that may have different user screen resolutions and sizes, what are the best strategies? a. Design with a specific target screen resolution in mind? b. Always use a re-sizeable stack? c. Design for a particularly scenario and al...

when will ipad simulator work with .mov files?

The project I am working on requires that two to four short .mov files (or whatever format they need to be in) be able to be shown in a small window on an iPad when a button is pressed. I understand that this is difficult with RevMobile at present. I was wondering if there were any projections as to...
