What I object to is this: "is punctuated and spaced like human languages" because a very large amount of written
languages are neither punctuated nor spaced (and all human, i.e. spoken, languages are neither punctuated nor spaced).
Yeah, I can see that. Thanks.

Re: Swift Playgrounds

1. Is that Apple tutorial for Swift or LiveCode? 2. Does swift's localization extend to being able to program in Sanskrit? 3. See 1. 4. Parentheses are the notation most languages use to contain parameters. A notable exception is Pascal, which is among the few languages which have two handler types,...

Re: mouseStillDown does not pass

The message passes normally, it's the origin trigger that differs. From the callout box at the bottom of the Dictionary entry for mouseStillDown: Note: If there is no mouseStillDown handler in the target object's script, no mouseStillDown message is sent, even if there is a mouseStillDown handler in...

Re: Need clean image

If MW's solution doesn't do what you need, I'd just put a poly and a rect in a group and keep moving forward.

@Sparkout

The problem with a polygon graphic is that if I set its opaque then LC closes the shape into a rectangle.
Mark Waddingham provided a nifty trick for creating polygons that avoid the closed shape:

Re: Life passed before my eyes

Font corruption can sometimes exhibit odd behavior. It may be a useful diagnostic measure to replace the file of the font that was used when the issue was evident. Also take note of its mod date. I suppose before doing that it may be helpful to check this premise by setting the font back to the one ...

Re: Moving files to Windows' Recycle Bin in LiveCode -- is it possible?

Great work, Gerrie.

That'll tide us over well until Microsoft switches to the Linux kernel. :) Once they complete that the Unix philosophy of "everything is a file" will give us a path to the Recycle process that can be used with normal file I/O calls, like the Linux /proc folder provides. #DayDreams

Re: Something to remember when scripting substacks

So basically your mainstack is a stack that performs some init and only shows an interface if there's an init error, otherwise it will grab interface and other stacks from an online server, download as needed and then launch the user-accessible part of the app? And presumably this handles updates f...

Re: Something to remember when scripting substacks

...But then when I really got to grok the message path I just realised the elegance and understood a whole lot more about the paradigm. Messages are meant to pass through card 1 before the stack. During original development it could have been made to work differently and we'd have a product that lo...

The dictionary changed to use a datagrid, so you need all the extras that come with that.
I thought the Dictionary was revised to use all web tech. What part uses the DataGrid?

Re: Moving files to Windows' Recycle Bin in LiveCode -- is it possible?

Serious question: why does Microsoft provide a path to the Recycle Bin if it can't be used? macOS does too - its at ~/.Trash (I think there are also folders related to Trash on each read-write volume as well). The files-which-you-might-want-to-recover have to be stored somewhere! I'm familiar with ...

Did you use the browser widget in the leaner build?
