Instructions: setup Livecode server on Windows 8.1 with XAMP

Thanks to Simon at Activethought.net for his very helpful instructions. I tried the instructions he made a while back and was never able to get it to work. I just found his updated instructions and tried again. I've just added a few bits to show exactly what worked for me. I've looked at a few diffe...

Re: Can Livecode be an external for non-livecode apps?

The other app isn't one particular app. I want to provide a standardized way to work with any other app. Apps written by other people in other languages. i want to provide a list of locations within a range of the phone's location. Someone else has already taken care of the server part. I want to mi...

Re: Can Livecode be an external for non-livecode apps?

Thanks for the reply. Yes my app tracks the mobile devices GPS. I'm trying to minimize server traffic by downloading a list of coordinates and only contacting the server when the GPS is within a certain range of one of those coordinates. Can a separate, Livecode app be bundled with another app so th...

Can Livecode be an external for non-livecode apps?

Can Livecode be written as an external for Android, or iOS apps? I started a standalone app which I would like to turn into an external/plugin for apps written in other languages. It tracks GPS coordinates and exchanges info with a server via JSON. I would like to be able to provide an API for excha...

Re: problem saving stack file to another drive on network

Thanks again for your help, Jacque, but I'm still thinking it's an LC thing. It case you didn't catch it, it took 15 MINUTES to save the file within LC. It took 12 SECONDS to transfer that same file to the same network location. I did a couple of other experiments. I opened that same LC stack in a t...

Re: problem saving stack file to another drive on network

It takes about 12 seconds to copy the file to the network drive.

Re: problem saving stack file to another drive on network

Thanks, Jacque. That worked and it turns out that I can save my stack the other way after all. The problem in both cases is that it takes a crazy long time to save the file. I just did a test and it took 15 minutes to save to another drive. The stack file is just under 10 MB. During that time, the b...

Re: problem saving stack file to another drive on network

Thanks for the feedback, Jacque. I don't think that's it, but I could be wrong. This is really just another computer on the network with a shared folder. The folder isn't password protected. Anyone on our local network can access it. Further, my stack file is able to write to a log file on that driv...

problem saving stack file to another drive on network

I'm using v7.1. This is actually an old problem I had with Metacard. I have a player.exe and a StackFile.livecode. This is so I can save changes to the stack within the stack rather than to an external file. Changes such as settings and field contents. Double-click the player, it looks in a text fil...

Re: mergZXing for Android

Monte, sorry I haven't gotten back sooner. The problem was actually with this line:
set the acceleratedRendering of this stack to true
With that in there the barcode instance doesn't appear - just an empty rectangle.
I'm using 7.04 RC2.
Thanks,
Rich

Re: mergZXing for Android

Monte, I found a problem. I had the barcode scanner working in my app until I added the following script to card 1. The fullscreenmode doesn't work when I put it in the stack script: on preOpenStack set the acceleratedRendering of this stack to true set the fullscreenMode of this stack to "exactFit"...

Re: Resolution Independence

In Android 5.1 and probably other platforms, the preopenstack handler listed above needs to be in the script of card 1, not in the stack script where it would make sense.

Re: mergZXing for Android

Outstanding! I verified that. BTW, I think you meant mergZXingGetBarcode().
Thanks for being so quick to respond.

Re: mergZXing for Android

Monte, I signed up as a mergExt complete user, downloaded this file and loaded your sample stack onto a Nexus 5 running 5.0.1. It works great! I'm not thrilled about having to ask a user to download another app (ZXing Barcode Scanner) to use my app. Is there any way to bundle that app with mine so t...

Re: Application Permissions

Is there a way to retrieve the IMEI and phone number on Android and iOS? I'm replying to this post because it is the only one I found that mentions this and it seems to indicate that there is a way to do it. It seems like these should be parameters of the mobileBuildInfo function. Boris mentions the...
