Re: Hiding code in a button in a commercial version of LiveCode

Actually, that was spun off of ajperks thoughts... I wonder if this suggestion might work? Years ago, I developed a large programme in modules. The main part was effectively buttons that triggered the called exe module. Nothing wonderful, but perhaps your script could become an ex, called by your bu...

Re: Hiding code in a button in a commercial version of LiveCode

Heh, I know my post was long-windy Craig, but right there at the top, just below what you quoted, you *might* have at least glanced at this line - The italic/underlined part would be better (but still not impossible to read), however, if any of these kids are precocious in the least, I wouldn't coun...

Re: More Hebrew Problems

Dunno, but since the OP said that a circle was also showing pixelated, I don't that as the issue, and, even if it were, if it were smooth in the app before exporting, it should be smooth after as well. The only way I get jagged or pixelated edges with those conditions is if I zoom in on whatever the...

Re: Hiding code in a button in a commercial version of LiveCode

Richmond. Surely you can place the code in some "remote" location, a hidden graphic, say, that nobody will ever suspect the existence of , much less try to read. And you can go further. Have the action button load the code from a custom property into the script of that graphic , execute it, and the...

Re: More Hebrew Problems

I don't know if you saw my post here or not, so even though your short of time, I'll ask you to:

List what vers. of Lc your using that produces this jagged look
...which OS your on
...a picture showing this jagged look so I can see what your seeing, since I'm unable to produce it.

Thanks!

Re: More Hebrew Problems

Well, the first thing I wondered is if you had come across this article in Max's excellent wiki? For instance.... ...there seems to be something called metaData but I cannot find any examples of how to use this or if it is even relevant. metadata - The metadata is an array of metadata. Currently the...

Re: Can you run LiveCode or Standalone from a USB?

Only one PC is licensed with my Indy, while the other is community.

Re: Can you run LiveCode or Standalone from a USB?

Anyway, I'm wondering if you can still run LiveCode from a USB? Never thought of that. Under what kind scenarios would you run LiveCode from an USB? or the standalone executable from an USB? Feeling curious about the uses. Well, I had a use case for just that scenario recently (within the last year...

Yeah, a stack file can be used. But an LSON file is easier to set up (no changes to architecture needed), and much easier to work with if the app ever transitions to multiple data sets
Pardon my ignorance, but what on earth is an " LSON file" ?

Re: [SOLVED] Icons and scrollbar with Android

In terms of the icons, I was talking about the built-in icons. I guess those images need to be copied, but I never figured out how to do that. I'm not quite sure I understand what you mean with that statement? If you mean moving an image from the image library onto a stack, this picture should expl...

Re: Card Flipping Animation

OTOH, why bother with cards? Just show/hide the images. *IF* you were asking me, I completely agree that I wouldn't use cards for an animation of almost any kind under normal circumstances, although there are exceptions I can think of to that rule, they would be few and far between. In this case, I...

Re: Card Flipping Animation

The above 2 methods are comprehensive and well demonstrated. i'll add a third way that, to use a modified quote from "The Matrix", will blow your mind when you realize the stack is the button. I actually included some niceties, like a message to tell you when it is animated and when it isn't. I spen...

Re: Finding A Character (.) In A String - Return Position

You can find all occurances of a character by using offset's optional third parameter. This is the equivalent of "send in time" and is very fast because it only needs to go through the text once. It does require a few more lines of script , where a single offset search only needs one line. Mind pos...
