Re: Standalone compile never leaves closing open stacks

Fantastic!!! This solved all of the compile problems I was having ... I'm very happy about now being able to use the latest version of LC. However... one question remains... If this code is REQUIRED in those sorts of handlers... why leave it to the developer to REMEMBER to specify it when the Standa...

Re: Wndows 10 desktop issue

Thanks very much ... questionable feature ... I wish all my problems were THIS easy. Why one default for Windows 7 and another for Windows 10? ... Whatever... thanks again!

Wndows 10 desktop issue

Why do I get all the weird issues??? While attempting to resolve a compile issue (see: "Standalone compile never leaves closing open stacks" in this forum), I've found that all versions of LC (from 8.1.10 to 9.6.1) COMPLETELY take over my desktop on Windows 10 pro 64 bit platforms and set the backgr...

Re: Standalone compile never leaves closing open stacks

Here's an "interesting" bit of additional info regarding the standalone compile. I mentioned that v8.1.10 works perfectly. Well, I decided to try to see if I could find a v9x version which DID work. I already determined that the newest version (v9.6.1) exhibits this issue for me.... and I had also t...

Re: Standalone compile never leaves closing open stacks

if you're referring to the following from release notes on v9.0.0: on closeStack if the mode of stack "revStandaloneProgress" > 0 then exit closesStack end if end closeStack yes ... kind-of ... since I don't use the "closeStack" handler specifically, I did try this in the button which actually close...

Re: Standalone compile never leaves closing open stacks

Thanks again for the input. On the two stacks which compiled to the "Attach Engine" stage and then froze, I did have "lock messages" within the handler I use to exit the app .. although I don't use the "on closeStack" handler... but simply on a button: on mouseUp --lock messages set the destroyStack...

Re: Standalone compile never leaves closing open stacks

Thank you both for your replies... regarding searching for "standalone" ... ?too common? ... Really? Particularly when the term is a reference to a LIVECODE function ... I tried many variations (e.g. in quotes, case variations, etc... I'm no amateur in searching for things). I also tried "compile" b...

Standalone compile never leaves closing open stacks

First... it's hard to understand why the term "Standalone" is *ignored* in this forum's search since it is a term used by Livecode itself... go figure! Using Livecode 9.5.0 build 15503 on Windows 7 enterprise 64 bit. Set the Standalone Application settings to only a Windows build (tried BOTH Windows...

Re: disconnect and re-connect to MergBLE

yes, as discovered on the other thread, I have "fixed" the "checkFrom" handle to use the "wait with messages" syntax... that works fine now. You are right (of course) why the "version" of "doNoACK" I presented doesn't work... I actually do know NOT to use a "message" handler as a "command"... stupid...

Re: no JDK path after newest Android Studio & Jave SE El Cap

so... here's the "answer" from LC support... and I sincerely hope the next person who goes looking for this "solution" finds this posting first and saves themselves several hours of frustration: "... LiveCode, generally, is happy with newer versions of Java (i.e it works on non-MacOS systems) howeve...

no JDK path after newest Android Studio & Jave SE El Capitan

I have searched the FAQ's and forum for an answer to this issue but cannot find one. After installing the latest version of Android Studio (2.1.2) and Java 8 (/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_102.jdk) on a MAC running El Capitan ...LC v8.0.2 will NOT populate the JDK path in the LC Mobile ...

how to search this forum for refernces to the "find" command

I am looking for any discussion of whether it is possible to highlight the box which the "find" command inserts. However, I can't seem to find (no pun intended) how to specify such a search. "find" is "too common a word" to search for.. and other combinations of a search like "+find +box", find 200+...
