in 2004:

Also, when making a new stack this way, you have to set the title if you want to ditch the asterisk shown when you just set the name.
Thanks again. The asterisk was the first thing I noticed when I got a stack to come up.

Thanks guys! I got a window to come up. That is all I have had time to try for now. When I am able to do more and have more questions, I hope you will see my questions if I add them to this thread/topic.

I know your story well heh. The good news is, you literally can do everything programmatically in Lc, but as SparkOut points out, cheating is extremely helpful in the beginning.

Re: Creating a LiveCode User Interface Programmatically

Hi, LiveCode newbie here. I am just playing around with LiveCode right now and prefer to try creating a user interface programmatically for learning purposes, if possible. Under Core Concepts in the LiveCode docs, there is a page called “Programming a User Interface” which suggests it can be done pr...
