Re: Windows -> MacOS : file format ?

I thought it's a security thing where you have to give permission for an app of "unknown source" to run? Windows has a sort of thing like that too, sort of. Or is it just the executable bit? Or is that the same thing? If one is selling stuff to "nervous" people then one is likely to be driving down ...

Re: video player stops playing videos in list

As Klaus said, this is likely to be a path issue, and from what I can see above, there doesn't seem to be any other indication that it is something else. No guarantee, but I really suspect that if you try on playStopped -- video finished; start the next one put constructPathForNextVideo() into thePa...

Re: Answer Command doesn't work on Windows

No problem on Windows here either, of course.
Could it be a copy/paste issue with some strange invisible characters brought over? or a "curly/smart quotes" thing? (A sample stack would be the best way to diagnose.)

Re: Join

There are some possibilities to help, but the best bet is to read up about join types (and the rest of sql generally) here https://www.w3schools.com/sql/sql_join.asp

Re: Successful test

Hopefully we'll not lose Hermann's spirit and knowledge, just a lack of new work on the HTML5 platform.

You have made most excellent contributions over the years.
Thank You!

Yes, exactly my thoughts. Sorry to hear that, and also express my extreme appreciation.

Re: Nothing new since 9.5.1 ?

Mmm, I don't have a desire for "new, new, now, now" but would rather focus on fixing what needs to be fixed already, and ensuring that what new releases come are robust and well tested. Unless I am waiting on a fix, then I want that fix to be released "now, now" of course. You can't please me all th...

Re: convert list to string

You know Ted and Alice are not together any more, don't you? They split a few months ago, and he started seeing Caitlin recently. Alice got a new job and moved away, I think.

Re: LiveCode 9.5.1 Community running slowly on Windows 10

I notice it, and have seen quite a number of references to similar problems in IDE performance. It is MUCH better than it used to be in LC 8.x but still apparent, but without a consistency or recipe. Sometimes it slowly reduces in performance over time and a restart of LC improves things again, whic...

Re: Scrolling list field handling

Lets see if we can make it clearer. The field size is the fixed "viewport". The field content will not fit entirely within that viewport, so there will need to be a vScroll. The formattedHeight of the field is the height that the field would need to be to allow all the content to be viewed without n...

Re: Follow Cursor

The dictionary entry for idle does warn of it not being a good fit for most things where a "send" is likely to work better. Here's another revision that doesn't use idle. The button will lag behind the cursor at a varying distance according to the speed at which the cursor is being hurtled around - ...
