Re: State of the Extensions Store

True, but rather than making a fool of myself when writing to them saying "Why's the store not working?" only to be told "It *is* working!", I thought I'd ask here first (I assumed all the widget builders would be here). For what it is worth, I've never had a problem getting an answer directly from...

Re: A basic tutorial...

Hey all, I added a tutorial using the colorNames function to the playlist. The goals are to create a stack with a single field, and then fill the field with - * a header * the colors LiveCode provides * the RGB values for the colors * the Hex values for the colors * set the text color to either blac...

Re: How to Create a Command-Line Tool with LiveCode?

Like I said, I'm not sure what about that makes it 'hacky'. I don't know which Os you are on, but, for instance, on Linux just off the top of my head, if you want to run dpkg, you are going to be using a switch. In fact, no part of dpkg (or many other) command line tools does *anything* unless you u...

Re: buffering browser widget

If you lock the screen, my understanding is that you have to unlock it as well for as many locks as you put in. The dictionary example illustrates this I think pretty well... on mouseUp lock screen -- first lock drawStuff -- gets locked again and unlocked in drawStuff show image "Sprite" unlock scre...

Re: How to Create a Command-Line Tool with LiveCode?

Just curious, what makes adding '-ui' to the command to launch the program any more or less hacky than not using it?

I really am curious, not trying to be a jerk. Switches are common to almost any command line tool I can think of, no matter how you write them or launch them.

Re: resizing images with CTR

No, I mean weird as in I thought the cmd key on mac was the control key on everything else, so ...
weird as in why would you bother to put a control key on the keyboard?

I'll readily admit to not having used a mac since my mac plus :D

Re: resizing images with CTR

Well, yes, isn't the cmd key the equivalent of the ctrl key on a mac keyboard?

Sorry, don't get it!? The Control key does NOTHING when holding while resizing an image!
Or do you have some other kind of keyboard?

Re: resizing images with CTR

On Linux (and I suspect Windows), you can indeed hold the CTRL key before clicking a resize handle, which acts like more of a cropping than a resizing, in that it moves only the outside frame of the image object. Can someone explain some real-world examples of where CTR resizing would be used? I can...

Re: Returns in a column

LOL ! I remember when I read that, and it is still a good read today :D I still think using null characters is the way to go with making a csv. After all, they can't be typed in on a keyboard, and most people would have no idea how to create one. You might also want to look at this thread , and in p...

Re: Creating a LiveCode User Interface Programmatically

When I included your user ids in my previous reply, I did not preface them with '@'. If I preface them with '@' (like a Twitter handle), does that make them "real" user id references (as it would in a tweet), and does the user get notified, if they have the appropriate notifications enabled? I am s...

Re: Returns in a column

Heya Greg,

What is actually separating the columns? commas, tabs, some other symbol?

Re: Implementing full regex in LiveCode

I'm curious, as well as locking the screen, wouldn't locking the messages while it is running, then unlocking after it is done reduce the time? Or do I mis-understand message locking (among other things) :D
