Re: Simple DB app

LiveCode Global. In 2017 and 2018, instead of having an annual user conference in some city, LiveCode did bi-monthly all-day online meetups. Someone complained that there was not enough content for n00bs, so I decided to teach a n00b session every time. Using DB's with LC was one of them. Check with...

Re: mobileControlCreate: misspelled "input", no compiler error

Correct. In fact, there are a number of things on mobile that are like this. The Tao of LC Compiled (especially on mobile) is this: stuff breaks silently. I think it was 2013 when I had a conference call with Kevin and Mark and they asked me what I wanted to change in LC. One of the things I told th...

Re: Accessing Google Sheets in Standalone – Inclusions needed?

i'm interested in where this might go since mergGoogle is tempermental and i think some of the other solutions might let us get more control.

Re: Version control – which system?

You can export that script as a behavior, and then use any VCS that you like. This is only applicable at newer versions of v. 9, and earlier versions of 9 have some issues with this. The totally manual way is bring up the properties pane for the stack choose the advanced tab tap the behavior button ...

Re: Importing data from Google Sheets (problem with returns in cells) [wrong attachment, now updated]

looking at this more closely, i'd say export as csv and parse. when i do that, b2 gets quotes around it, which tells you it needs special handling.

Re: Importing data from Google Sheets (problem with returns in cells) [wrong attachment, now updated]

So merggoogle is out, right? How about generating another sheet using the QUERY and IMPORTDATA functions? I would use the FORMAT clause with the QUERY to surround each column value with another delimiter character. The original csv syntax was for each cell to be surrounded by quotes and separated by...

Re: Add Repeat option for mobileCreateLocalNotification

You don't need to write an external, you need to push the notifications to the users.
One advantage that has is that you have more control over the process.

Re: BBC article about HyperCard

I don't think I agree with LC's marketing staff and skill or lack thereof (but their behavior in this case is odd). I had a couple of conversations with Kevin a couple of years ago about this topic, and I was surprised at how sophisticated they seemed to be with their approach. They still should hav...

Re: BBC article about HyperCard

It's PR and Marketing. What wouldn't you say? Occasionally said individuals converse with news agencies, especially if they've placed an ad with said agency at any time in the last 20 years, because the news agency will be spamming the company regularly. - or - you could go the Wendy's Twitter feed ...
