Re: Random numbers with no duplicates

Please note that the sort random method also works with letters or words or y sort of items that you can put in a list. In one stack I have a bunch of points (integer pairs) and in another I have grid references (G1,R4,Z10) and I use the sort list random(1000) method to mix things up without dupes. ...

Re: Mouse trap

Set a flag variable so that it plays once, then ignores the ‘play’ message. Use the idle message or mouseMove message to refresh the flag so that when they go within later, they will get the sound played once more. Was the mouseOver message coming from being over a button or a graphic? What object w...

Re: Fun With APNG & LC

You’re working in binary file, so what do those bytes mean when interpreted as a decimal integer?

Re: File Size For Project With Only One Button Is Too Big

The file size is that big because the Livecode engine is embedded in the stand alone. The minimum size is that 16 MB, but it will only grow very slowly as the code increases. If you had lots of graphics or videos inside the app, it will grow quickly again. But the actual code and vector based UI ele...

Re: ImageData question

If the aliens can compress secret technology into 40 bytes of information or ten pixels, then we had better start bowing to a superior race!

Re: ImageData question

For example, the numeric value of the red, green and blue channels respectively for the tenth pixel are given by the expressions: charToNum(char (4 * 9 + 2 of the imageData of image <image>) charToNum(char (4 * 9 + 3 of the imageData of image <image>) charToNum(char (4 * 9 + 4 of the imageData of i...

Re: Distorted view of fields in Android Device

To increase the size of the stack on your computer, you can use scaleFactor. It will scale things up on your screen but will not affect it on your device when you build a standalone. -- Preview the stack appearance on a high-density display set the scaleFactor of stack "myApp" to 1.5 Just type the c...

Re: Copying scripts to text file

Thanks KD, and hello to a fellow Canadian. This sounds a bit more involved than I was hoping for, but, also sounds like a good opportunity to get my feet wet with Git for the old version control. Currently on folder 111 for this program 😊 ScriptTracker is very simple and does NOT require you to use...

Re: Copying scripts to text file

Script Tracker by Brian Milby on the forum here takes all of the scripts from any stack and puts them in text files so that you can use Git or whatever to track them or edit them externally. An essential piece of software for me.

Thanks again Brian!

Re: Pushing a button from somewhere else

Should be as simple as: send "mouseDown" to button "button2" Try that... or you could create a command "soSomething" on the card or stack level and then have this script in each of the buttons: on mouseDown doSomething end mouseDown Copying the code is for beginners. You bloat your code, leave two p...
