I think you called the wrong guy, Craig, you and Bernd have it well in hand, as far as I can tell ;)

Re: Strict compilation mode

However, WHY is there never an error on the "repeat with x = 1 to 10" line? Isn't "x" a local variable also in the script above? Why does it not need to be declared? Not exactly. Repeat is a control structure, and the conditions are predefined already by the structure. Dictionary - The condition is...

Re: FEW DETAIL ON THE PROJECT

You probably missed the other 2 threads where they are asking for a developer to create this. Klaus suggested a few more details would be in order, and they certainly have provided them.

Re: Missing Contents Tab in Fields when moving from version 5.0.2 to 9.6

I wasn't able to recreate the issue on 'nix moving a stack in a similar manner (Mc -> Rev. 4 -> Lc 9.6 community) on 'nix, so I'd ask that you include your Os after answering Craig's questions. Does a newly made field in your updated stack also not contain the contents... Well, he did write that - I...

Re: Text Box Rotation?

A lot of astoundingly good programming has been removed or veiled, but fortunately there is still content he continues to host, and here: https://hyperhh.de/widgets/ you will see one of the widgets is for text rotation (called OrientedText). You won't get a better solution. You *might* find a bette...

Re: Replace LiveCode Script with JavaScript, forever

Similarly, LC offers "do <otherLanguageStatements> as...", where the "as" clause specifies the target language, where the target language can be any of the host-OS-provided options returned with the alternateLanguages function. Pretty useless on 'nix though, as it is only supported on Mac, Win, and...

Re: Replace LiveCode Script with JavaScript, forever

That isn't still available in Lc? Shows how little I know :P :P

However, I was referring to a completely different scripting language, in this case .js :P

Re: Replace LiveCode Script with JavaScript, forever

No constructive point in the OP's original post I do think a bit more documentation about how one might connect "something" written in LiveCode with "something" written in another programming language might not be a bad thing. Here's a good starting point: https://livecode.com/resources/api/#liveco...

Re: Replace LiveCode Script with JavaScript, forever

However, the rest have made a 5 page discussion around the original subject, and are prepared to engage. Guilty as charged, however, since there is already a language devoted and about Js, I still have to say I don't see any point to turning another language into it :P :P :P <I do wonder if we can ...

Re: Import "funny" snapshot

I'm not positive I understand the goal. You can certainly have a group of images (depending on how you want the holes to appear, an animated gif would do), and have the window shape change based on the image used.

For instance, this little time waster (press esc. to kill it).

Re: Grouping. \

If it is any consolation, I'm glad you mentioned it, since I'm often creating my own controls by bashing multiple controls together (depending on what I expect it to do) :D
