Re: how can I load a website url into an image control

I *knew* there was a magical Hermann solution somewhere close at hand :D Yes, it's very well done. As Bogs suggested, it relies on a browser engine (Widget) to render the page, then uses LC's snapshot to obtain the rendered page image. Though Bevan had considered this method clunky, I can't imagine...

Re: Windows 10 64 bit version?

Curious, the necromantic post is gone, and now my reply appears to be the necromancer. :)

Oh well, it'll be good to have that update from the team just the same.

Re: how can I load a website url into an image control

The literally millions of machine instructions needed to download all of the elements of a web page and render them is inherently time consuming. There is no magic pony to make that much simpler. Web page rendering is a very complex task. Though it may seem klunky, given the complexity of the task B...

Re: Saving Files to SQL Database

If you backup the site with tar it doesn't matter. If you backup with rsync it'll likely be faster because it won't have to re-download the image file just because some other dates in the table has changed (depending on unpredictable affects of writes across the btree over time; rsync is pretty clev...

Re: Windows 10 64 bit version?

I've read that the core team has a Win64 build in progress, but I don't know current status. Given Microsoft's good history of maintaining backward compatibility I don't imagine this is a high priority for them, but I'll write them and see what I can learn.

Re: Not working 9.03: Disable Item in Option Button Menu

This has never worked in any version of LiveCode, nor in any other program conformant with Microsoft's design guidelines.

The Windows Human Interface Guidelines recommend removing items from option controls that are not relevant to the current context, rather than disabling them.

Re: Running Ubuntu Linux on Virtualbox

I am merely thinking of those coming to Lc, not of myself or my usage, which is not going to change. A good goal, and much appreciated. If they follow the guidance in the Install Guide, they should be fine. If they're using a distro not listed there, they're probably accustomed to open source proce...

Re: Running Ubuntu Linux on Virtualbox

I have insufficient information to determine whether the source of the crashes are specific to the Linux kernel. No bug report numbers have been cited, no recipes given. I could speculate, but I'd rather be informed. If you are uninformed after our last few discussions in this area, where I not onl...

Re: Running Ubuntu Linux on Virtualbox

I'm not following. Regardless if a problem is in the engine or the IDE, if it only affects an unsupported distro we're faced with the question of who pays for the work. Ok. IF this were a brand new product that hadn't already been chugging away merrily on every distro on the planet, i *might* agree...

Re: Running Ubuntu Linux on Virtualbox

I think I'll stop derailing the main topic here, I can see from your post we're at one of those places that you and I part ways in our thinking. I absolutely believe you if you say it is definitely the engine, then I am now sure that it is. I'm not following. Regardless if a problem is in the engin...

Re: Running Ubuntu Linux on Virtualbox

All crashes in a scripting language are ultimately engine issues. By its nature, a scripting language is a protected sandbox; error handing for crashes should happen in the engine, as they are beyond what a script can address. The question with Linux distros the company does not finance support for ...

Re: Running Ubuntu Linux on Virtualbox

I suspect the engine isn't the problem most people would have with the current distro :) I see poor visual consistency with Gnome Shell, but aside from known engine issues like no video playback support LC seems to run okay on current distros. And I wrote a script to update the UI to better match G...

Re: Running Ubuntu Linux on Virtualbox

My question would be, are you running it as it shows up out of the box as it were, or are you running the engine with Devolution as the IDE. Just curious really. Being a plugin, I run LC once to register the program before installing Devo. Being a simple plugin, I can't imagine how it could have an...
