Re: Does anyone have a any good resources on learning HTML5?

Welcome, vishalbotr.

Your question seems oddly generic for a tool-specific forum. What are you building with LiveCode?

Re: Passing mouse clicks up the object heirarchy

I belong to no political party, hold the same respect for all churches, and even treat left-handed people as I would right-handed.

But on this most important matter I take my stand: messages fall downward.

Yes, this is the hill I'm prepared to die on. :)

hi, this code isnt working, any ideas? (Android)
"Isn't working" is hard to fix.

With any file I/O it's very useful to check the result immediately after the I/O statement, and if not empty then query sysError() to find out the specific error code the OS is passing to LC about why it failed.

The real problem here is with this thread title: messages do not pass up the hierarchy, they pass down. ;)

This is not a proposed solution, just a diagnostic question:. What happens when you close the Message Box?

Re: Hiding code in a button in a commercial version of LiveCode

Ah, then that's a problem for you then Richmond. Sorry, no bright ideas. I own an INDY licence, so I'm not sure if 'that' is the problem. Probably not. If you're deploying under proprietary license the solutions offered here for password-protecting a substack would suffice. The inability of Communi...

Re: Hiding code in a button in a commercial version of LiveCode

The community edition doesn't contain any code to decrypt encrypted scripts. I believe attempts to use them throw an error, though they may just fail silently (I've never tried it myself, so I'm not sure what the behavior is, only that encrypted scripts can't be used in Community).

Re: MQTT

If there a way MQTT functionality could be provided over HTTP, or are hardware vendors using MQTT with binary dependencies exclusively?

Re: July is here

I think the SOCAL group has been around for a while, and I believe Richard Gaskin sort of runs it. They know who they are. Bill Vlahos and I are co-founders of the SoCal LiveCode group. So Clarence's note is well placed in the appropriate forum. And yes, we know who we are, though we're all still k...

Re: Is that the end of SuperCard?

SC's a competitor only for Mac-exclusive devs. Its key value is in being focused on Mac, while LC's main value is running everywhere.

I love SC, but I have work on Windows and fun on Linux so there's not as much there for me these days.

Re: Can you run LiveCode or Standalone from a USB?

U3 was an attempt to create a standard to let Windows users run Windows apps from a modest external storage, at a time when most Win apps required having DLLs thrown all over the boot drive. There's probably a Wikipedia page on it, but it's so old it may not be interesting. As for LC, it's apps are ...

Re: Is that the end of SuperCard?

The didn't say "Apple never said they were going to 64-bit". What they wrote is "Apple has gone back on their promise to deliver 64-bit Carbon frameworks." There may be details behind that I'm not aware of. Rather than get all judgy about them when I don't have the information they have, it's easier...
