Re: State of the Extensions Store

This is a user-to-user support forum. For the best answer to things the company is doing, writing to the company directly will not only get you a quick and authoritative answer, but also allow them the opportunity to know your concern.

Re: How to Create a Command-Line Tool with LiveCode?

It doesn't seem particularly onerous to have either a script + engine or a standalone with UI when shipping to an audience comfortable with command line execution.

What am I not understanding?

Re: How to Create a Command-Line Tool with LiveCode?

The -ui flag is only needed when using a standalone facelessly from the command line. It is not needed with LiveCode Server.

This blog article describes how to use LC Server outside of web serving, as a more general command-line program:

Re: Date and Time in RFC 3339 format

True, Craig, but being able to use the format with the convert, sort, and other commands would be pretty nice. Mark Waddingham once outlined a proposal to support a wide range of date formats with minimal modifications to the code base. That was many years ago. Don't know what became of that, but it...

Re: Scrolling around

Small detail, but sometimes helpful: the mouseH and mouseV will reflect the current position of the mouse, so if the user is somewhat active it by the time those values are obtained they may be a few pixels off from the location they clicked at. ClickH and ClickV will give you the last "down" locati...

Re: Error Messages

That's a good example. The LC engine is doing what we would expect there: having already obtained the value of ZZ from a field, in line 3 it has no awareness of the field at all, simply operating on ZZ. Had ZZ been passed in as a param from a separate handler which derived its value from a field, th...

Re: Error Messages

I'm guessing it has to do with the limited support LC provides for HC's "families" of buttons, the mechanism for syncing radio buttons IIRC, which we do with groups in LC. But coming to LC from a SuperCard background (I pretty much stopped using HC the day SC was released), my memory of HC's feature...

Gotta love #526 "bad family expression". I can think of a few of those myself.
How does one trigger a 526 error?

Re: Creating a LiveCode User Interface Programmatically

Most things in LC are commands that operate on objects by adjusting properties . Keep that in mind as you go, and the opportunities for creating and modifying UIs on the fly become increasingly self-evident as you learn. We have the "create" command to make new objects, "delete" to get rid of them, ...

Re: Error Messages

I wonder if there is a way where end-users could contribute error messages on-the-fly? I base error-handling code on the content of error messages. Many do. Any revisions to those strings needs to be carefully considered. Do you have an actual example of a mystifying string? Maybe the opportunity h...

Re: LC to JavaScript to PHP roundtrip

Unless you're using Node.js, JS and PHP are on opposite sides of the transaction, so I'm having a hard time understanding your goal. More confusing is the customary use of "round trip" with program translation, which usually implies converting to something else and then back again to the original. A...
