Re: avoid vscroll stops between two lines

I do not believe any message is sent when one stops dragging the thumb in a scrolling field. "ScrollBarDrag" is sent constantly while dragging, being the "mouseMove" of the scrolling world, but I do not see how to know when one stops scrolling. I don't believe there is a handy message to catch eith...

Re: avoid vscroll stops between two lines

Hmmm. I don't know, but I think there's no (simple) way, if I understand correctly. I imagine the OP wants to have the visible gap between visible lines of text neatly flush with top of the field (and bottom) so that no partial view of a half a line is displayed. You could prevent different text sty...

I am very happy that this should be the case, but I am really curious as to how work on the FM initiative has resulted in Android fixes. The "bigger picture" view would be great to see, we only ge...

Re: IDE windowed mode

I'm not sure I understand, but as I said, an approximation is to work with the backdrop turned on and palettes positioned as if docked inside the parent window. I am used to the LiveCode IDE and don't see a major need for change. But I am not sure "only one window" describes the situation well enoug...

Re: IDE windowed mode

I personally would favour single window interface. XCode is pretty good that way - easy to hide panels u don’t need and focus on what your doing. I personally don’t feel any need to be able to see other apps while I’m working on code and vice versa... so for me at least, being able to see other app...

Re: Is it possible to convert an Android Studio project to a livecode project?

In one sense of the word "convert" then yes, it is possible. But in no way could you take (say) a Kotlin project and automate the changeover. The only way would be starting from scratch and designing the project in LiveCode - you could possibly relate some conceptual elements mentaly, but no direct ...

Re: Comparison with Xojo . . .

@chikega how did your experience compare with LiveCode? You know Revolution evolved into LiveCode, right? Did you try the Revolution examples from the book?

Re: Deleting auto-created Templates, safe ?

The cards in the datagrid template hold the template objects that are used to make the live datagrid. So don't delete them.

Re: Annoying scrolling with the mouse wheel in the script editor.

On Windows I have had issues in the SE where a one-line scroll doesn't stop when it should, continuing without a way of interruption usually until it reaches the top or bottom limit of the script. It is one of many aberrant behaviours in the Windows SE that have defied diagnosis for a long time. Eac...

Re: Moving objects

I don't know if this is useful or relevant to the problem you're having but this old thread has a stack which does some drag/stop/link drawing which might be useful to pick apart, compare, or explore and expand.

Re: Find text between two different delimiters/tags using Regex

I always find regex difficult until Thierry helps out. Then I wonder what was so hard, but with a long time between needing to use regex it gets difficult again the next time, until Thierry swoops* in again. *I don't need to link the xkcd strip again do I?

Re: is the name of the selectedObject stored somewhere

Are you sure that when your handler calls this function, that there is indeed an object selected? This. If, for instance, you have created your own palette to choose properties to set, or a button to apply properties by running your handler, then you might find the selectedObject is no longer the o...

Re: Preventing control selection

This assumes that you have a convenient way of selecting which objects are and aren't selectable by script. So you might as well script the selection of the object you want to edit.
Maybe you could set the scalefactor of the stack to make the display easier to navigate around for mouse selection?
