Re: POLL: LiveCode Server deployment

Thank you for chiming in, Torsten. I really like that Ii can be creative with Livecode on all platforms and devices and don't have to implement functions in different languages just to be able to use them in multiple usage scenarios. ^ this! That's my attraction. LC covers as many platforms as JavaS...

Re: Missing App Icon in MacOS build

Any suggestions now on how to build or check the quality of the ICNS file? IIRC double-clicking the ICNS file in the Finder will open it in Preview with each of the sizes selectable. If corrupted, it should be evident quickly there. May also be good to double-check the plist file to make sure it wa...

Re: Colored or shaded sections of code in the SE

In fact, there was a time when the team was considering changing the name of the property to something like "xmlText", to better clarify its unique role within LC, and that it's HTML-like b...

Re: Colored or shaded sections of code in the SE

1. HtmlText is not HTML. Very different goals for each. HtmlText exists solely to provide a text representation of a all field contents with complete fidelity needed to reproduce them in another LiveCode field. Attempting to view htmlText in a web browser expecting HTML will sometimes produce someth...

Re: Colored or shaded sections of code in the SE

The script property itself is plain text. So if you want to store an htmltext copy you'll have to work out how to keep them in sync. Htmltext does include the backgroundColor where set; indeed, htmltext was designed to reproduce everything in styled text with complete fidelity. I won't be able to kn...

Re: Colored or shaded sections of code in the SE

You could make a plug-in that loads a frontscript which responds to a keystroke of your choice.

Unfortunately the MATE developers choose to ignore the suggestion to change window ordering. I'm hoping to grab someone's attention in a month or so and see if I can unravel the mystery.
Fisticuffs at SCaLE? Cool.

Re: Missing App Icon in MacOS build

Try copying the app to another folder.

I know, crazy, but sometimes that's enough to tickler the Finder so it looks into the bundle and reads the plist.

Re: Inclusions not loaded?

Inclusions-related confusion comes up often enough that it would seem to merit immediate attention. Does anyone here have the ID number of relevant bug reports on this handy?
