Re: Rotating an image within a graphic

I want to change the graphic points while the image is rotating. Actually, I tried setting "true" the stack property "Acceleratedrendering" but this does not redraw the backpattern image within the polygon graphic. Panos advice's provided in this previous forum thread does not refresh the graphic ba...

Re: The acid trip that inspired Bill Atkinson to create HyperCard

Bogs, Richmond have just posted a link to the disk image
of Atari ST Zoomracks (823k). Maybe you could install it
in your Atari computer and post a video explaining how
this program could have been HyperCard's inspiration.

Rotating an image within a graphic

Hi All, Does exists some property that allows to rotate an image within a polygonal graphic? I have tried: 1) rotate the image and 2) set the graphic background pattern to the image id but the graphic still shows the original image, without rotation. If I try the same with a button instead of a poly...

Re: The acid trip that inspired Bill Atkinson to create HyperCard

Hi All, I suspect that previously we have discussed at length this same topic on the mail list or this forum. In short, although Bill Atkinson attributes HyperCard to an acid trip, the fact is that Apple have to pay royalties to Paul Heckel, the author of ZoomRacks: https://groups.csail.mit.edu/mac/...

Re: [ANN] bnGuides alignment tool on livecodeshare

Hi All,

bnGuides alignment tool is working fine now
in my own setup! :D

The culprit was that opencard handler was
not running when I opened the stack.

I changed opencard for openstack and
replaced the original script for a shorter
script that Bernd send to my email.

Many Thanks Bernd!

Re: [ANN] bnGuides alignment tool on livecodeshare

Hi Bernd, Thanks a lot for updating your stack! :D On Mac, I copy and pasted the stack plugin into the LiveCode plugins folder but after opening the plugin inside Livecode IDE, a message appears asking me to put the stack inside the plugin folder.

Re: A basic tutorial...

Hi Bogs,

Could you zoom in to the screen zone where you are working?

It's somewhat distracting to see mostly the background while
you are working in just a small part of the screen.
