Re: Replace LiveCode Script with JavaScript, forever

I explicitly choose LC because of ease of learning and the ability to write complex applications for Windows, Mac, Android and Linux, and even Raspberry PI as well as the cost-friendly nature of the licenses. And even though the language basics of LC are easy to learn there is no development languag...

Re: Adding a 2nd datagrid to a stack

I also have had the problem that I could not add a new Datagrid on a card where already a Datagrid existed (Windows 10 ). However in LC 9.6.1. I cannot reproduce it.

Workaround for me is:
In the Menu : Object > New Control > DataGrid.

Regards,

Paul

How does one hook that into PHPBB?
Although I am ok with how it works now, this is what I could find.

Re: Required Coding Instructors

Why only female? I can put on a dress, a wig, and some make-up. Would that suffice? I think it is better to base selection criteria upon tutor skills and experience and not on race, gender, believes and so on! However, there might be good reasons for exceptions but I have not seen any from Junior.....

Ah. Did you not expect a fractional part? That's the whole point of the "long" variation.
Wel AxWald mentioned
9.6/ 64bit: They show no fractional part at all
in Windows 10. That why I wanted to test it myself.

Re: the microseconds

mrcoollion- your stack isn't really showing anything useful because of the time it takes LC to execute another statement, and more importantly, to update a field on the screen. Locking the screen would help, as would putting the results into variables before the subtraction and *then* updating the ...

Re: the microseconds

9.6/ 64bit: They show no fractional part at all. On Win 10. Have fun! I made a little stack that compares long milliseconds and milliseconds statement and for what it is worth there is a difference in Windows 10 64b with LC 9.6.1. and sometimes a fractional part is shown as well. However, I do not ...

Re: Separate the interface from running background routines (Solved)

Thanks Craig,

I only need to start routines every 30 seconds or so, so I am not worried about the speed. However, I do worry a bit about the recursion limit (40000 ?).
Could this be a problem in my case and if so is there a work around?

Regards,

Paul
