flcDatePicker doesn't work with 8.1.8

Hi,

I've been using flcdatepicker for a number of years now. It works fine under LC 8.0.1 but not under 8.1.8. The guy who wrote flcdatepicker is retired, so doesn't want to put time into fixing it.

Is there an easy alternative to flcdatepicker? I'm on Windows desktop

Thanks

Greg

Re: Browser widget - change browser engine

Yes it does. Luckily IE still ships on Windows 10. But they may remove it at some point, which is why I would prefer to use Firefox

Re: Browser widget - change browser engine

Hi all, Sorry for the delay. Andy, the revBrowserOpen works fine, however the shortcomings of Internet Explorer as a browser are evident if I go to a modern website. Is there any way to use Firefox as the engine? Brahmanathaswami, I am using Dr Explain to build my HTML help system. It has a search o...

Browser widget - change browser engine

Hi, I have developed the help system for my Livecode app in HTML. I am trying to use the browser widget to display it. It seems that the LC browser widget uses Chrome (or maybe Opera) as the browser engine, which doesn't allow searching of local HTML files - only server based. Firefox and (perish th...

Re: Transition from standalone to multiuser with SQLite

Thanks for the feedback. I am using composite keys to ensure that records do not get created twice. For example, if I have a customer, a product and sub products, I want to ensure only one record exists for any combination of customer/product/subproduct. I guess I can check to see if the record exis...

Transition from standalone to multiuser with SQLite

Hi, I have developed a Livecode application (Windows and Mac) that currently runs standalone using SQLite. I need to progress this to a multi-user system with the database hosted on either the internet/intranet/local network using our app and also the web. In order to do this I need to have the data...

Integrated help system

Hi, I am about to embark on producing user guide(s) for my LC app. Ideally it would be available as context-sensitive help when a user is in a particular card. If LC doesn't have something integrated to help then I guess I will build it from scratch and embed PDF documentation. So, can anyone tell m...

MAC Standalone created on PC doesn't execute on Mac

Hi, I have Livecode on a PC development platform (LC 7.1). When I create a Mac standalone app and copy it to a Mac, it won't execute. However if I build the standalone on the Mac it executes just fine. Seems to be a permissions thing but I don't know enough about Mac to figure out how to solve it. A...

Creating a standalone with an external stack

Hi, I am putting this post in a newbie even though I have been using Livecode for a while now. Probably doing something really dumb. I am dividing my app into 3 apps. I have a set of common routines in a stack all its own. I reference the stack from the mainstack (Stack Files). Under the IDE the ext...

Large font in Tab Panel on Mac doesn't fit

Hi

I have tab panel where I have changed the size of the text font to 24. In Windows, the tab height expands according to the size of the font, however on a Mac it does not So the text runs over the lower "boundary" of the tabs.

Not sure how to resolve this.

Cheers

Putting common functions in code modules

Hi, I am at the stage where I need to modularise my mainstack. There are bunch of common routines that I need to be able to call from any substack/object. To date I have just put them in the main stack and they become accessible. However my main stack is becoming very large (over 10k lines) and I wa...
