Re: Accessing or simulating MacOS scrollbar behavior preference

I had thought that the window components such as scrollbars were handled by the underlying operating system to be rendered (except on mobile, where a slight change of syntax and card construction is required to choose native components). Windows doesn't have this behaviour anyway. I am surprised the...

Re: sorting array on two values

This kind of magic is thanks to the nondestructive sorting paradigm. Or is it actually just magic? I think it's magic.

Knowing Thierry, it will be an extremely good solution, and probably involve regex.

Re: Livecode syntax highlighting in VSCode

Wow, this looks great. I just browsed the marketplace, found and installed it, no hassle. I added .lc as a format to be interpreted as livecodescript and it shows all the syntax highlighting I'd expect. I've not yet tested in depth but looking great so far. Good job and thank you. How come this is y...

Re: How to create a new label field programmatically?

Is this a LiveCode project? What do you mean by installing a module, and a "fieldable entity"? Where is the 'Manage Fields' UI? EDIT. I would create a new topic for this thread. It will be more noticed if you do. I may be cynical, but I wonder whether that's desirable for a post hoping to fly under ...

Re: Raspberry Pi

Just to be clear, Pis can run LiveCode perfectly well, if a highly responsive GUI isn't required. I have several projects that work perfectly well with a LiveCode app running, for various things but include a Pi Zero W being a controller for a maglock to open a door when receiving the correct socket...

Re: Raspberry Pi

The LiveCode IDE does work on the Raspberry Pi, but it is pretty slow for me on a Pi 3. Standalone builds work ok as well but still not lightning fast. The most recent version that works on Pi builds is 7.04 I believe. Older versions (pre Unicode refactoring) work faster. Hermann [-hh] no longer pos...

Re: Vanished Test

When you updated the Android SDK did you leave the checkbox ticked to "remove obsolete" versions? It may be that you have updated too hard and it has removed some files that are dependencies for LiveCode Android deployments. Also I think newer versions of the SDK might leave out some command line to...

Re: Path to document folder

I have a feeling I have to use the app to save a file in the documents folder specific to that app. That's the folder that is referenced by specialFolderPath("documents") The specialFolderPath("external documents") location need permission granted in the Android specific tab of the standalone setti...

Re: Referencing standard directories and applicationFolder

There are a number of cross platform folder locations referenced by the specialFolderPath() function, if you look that up in the LiveCode dictionary. The specialFolderPath("documents") or specialFolderPath("resources") for instance. For additional codes, particularly regarding Windows CSIDL referenc...

Re: Help with duplicate stack names

I would say "the handling of the issue" is a bug, or at least a bug-like problem. But, the "issue itself" is not a bug as such. As you already noted the possibility and raised the question, this highlights the difference of LC from HC in that the filename and stack name are NOT the same. If you rest...

Re: UI controls on iOS / MS-DOS?

For mobile development, LiveCode can apply a basic theme ("motif") to standard IDE controls - which is what your results demonstrate. It's a bit more work, as you don't just "publish" the stack with all cards and controls set, but also within LiveCode you can specify "native" control creation, which...

Re: Use send for file cleanup?

Or (best of both worlds) have a separate lc script that does what you want with all the specifics of file analysis and deletion, and call that on crontab. Added advantage: call on demand using regular browser.

But, probably best not to add more comments to the thread - you can use the ! icon by each post to report it, a moderator (likely Klausimausi) will handle it appropriately.

Re: Max capacity of a field

The "not responding" issue is typical on Windows when a tight repeat loop hogs all the cycles. This is why I frequently mention including a line inside the loop wait 0 milliseconds with messages I had heard this was originally "a Mac thing" that got resolved. But it has always been "a thing" on Wind...
