Re: Toolbar and KDE

Thanks, Warren.

The last post there reports Kubuntu working well, so the core issue seems something more specific than KDE.

When this happens, are the windows closed or just hidden? If the latter, does LC report their visibility as false?

Re: Mainstack contains itself

I'm most interested in how it got this way. Was there any point while you were working that you say a warning about duplicate stack names? To remedy this might work.(I say "might" only because I've never seen this circumstance before): 1. Make a backup of your file. If anything goes wrong, don't cal...

Re: Change the color of the android native bar.

Good find, Bogs. Widgets are written in LiveCode Builder, which provides a scripting interface for OS APIs, so this seems quite doable. Whether this is a bug per se or an enhancement request may be a matter of opinion. Personally, since the color is unresponsive to the UI provided in the Inspector I...

Re: Errors Migrating from LC Server Community

Glad you got it working. FWIW this enhancement request is related. It won't prevent such issues from happening, but will make for a much simpler solution, and provide a modest speed boost along the way. https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=14115 It's simple enough that anyone in our communit...

Re: Toolbar and KDE

That's a useful detail. Do you have any suspendStack or resumeStack handlers in your app?

Re: Change the color of the android native bar.

I don't know of a workaround. The best I can recommend is to dive into the widget code to fix it, or submit a bug report for the team to do so.

What went wrong with the server that it's timing out?

Do you see this behavior with other modeless stacks?

Re: Neural Network

One of the "problems" of any attempt at developing a Neural Network is that as it, supposedly, "learns" it must be able to modify its own code . . . . . . now that would be asking a bit much in a standalone. Self-modifying code is easily done the way all modifications are done in all applications: ...

Re: Using stacks on LC Server

In the LC "Cloud and Database" Lesson series, it demonstrates opening a stack in a client app from a web server. How this would be functionally superior to a browser page I don't know, but it seems it was intended as a demonstration of a "thin client" that didn't need rewriting or individual updati...

Re: Using stacks on LC Server

So does that mean I can ignore the "stack" concept (as I would with PHP) when using the server? And does that mean anything external (other pages) get referenced by includes and requires? More or less, yes. What happens on the server, even in a cool language like LiveCode, doesn't change the realit...

Re: Preventing substack from being opened

If you read the stack file and encrypt it before storing it in a custom prop, you can use password stored in an encrypted script in the mainstack for reasonable security.

Re: Linux, Linux, Linux

LiveCode on LXLE is community-supported. That is a most interesting statement, as I could, for the sake or argument, pay for a commercial version of LiveCode and install it on LXLE . At which point I could, quite legitimately, expect some sort of direct support from the company from which I had pur...

Re: Linux, Linux, Linux

In "my case" (i.e. LC 9.5.0 + LXLE Linux = the latest 'thang'), this proves that LiveCode really are a bit slapdash when it comes to their Linux offerings. LiveCode on LXLE is community-supported. Perhaps you'd meant to write "...we devs who use this distro really are a bit slapdash..." ;) "Linux" ...
