Re: JSON Api Helper plugin

Hi Bob, I'm new to making videos too. So the opening and closing cards are made with Canva, I'm still using the free version. For the video editor, I'm using the paid version of Filmora from WonderShare which I find easy to use and intuitive, much like LiveCode If you want a very easy to get started...

Re: JSON Api Helper plugin

Hi Andy, thanks for the stack. It can come in quite handy. I noticed that using the business edition all https sites did not work. I had to issue from the message box: dispatch "revunloadLibrary" to stack "tsNetLibURL" then it worked. Somehow tsNetLibURL interferes with the "put url.." command when...

Re: JSON Api Helper plugin

Really nice work Andy :D I can certainly use this because I also work with JSON data in my current application. I will probably modify it a bit to also handle any Array and not only an array generated from a JSON file. Thanks for sharing! Paul Thanks Paul, that's a good idea, I'll mod it so that pu...

JSON Api Helper plugin

I've been working with a lot of web based apis recently which involves a lot of repetitive coding to get the json elements out of their tree and into fields. The process is as usual very easy in LiveCode but involves a lot of repetition which I don't like, and I always try to eliminate repetition wh...

Re: [SOLVED] LC Syntax

To make adding the code for a control easier you can put the script into a hidden field and set the script to the contents of the field. This way you don't have to worry about concatenating an quotes.

Re: Can you run LiveCode or Standalone from a USB?

Another great advantage of having your working files synced on Dropbox or in my case Nextcloud, is that if Livecode crashes mid execution and trashes your code as it sometimes does is that you can go back to a previous save and download.

Re: New Video : Lets hack the LiveCode IDE with a plugin

Thanks for the positive comments. The easiest way is to use the send command with this format send "menuPick" && "MENU-ITEM" to button "MENU-HEADING" of stack "revMenuBar" So for run and edit; send "menuPick" && "Browse Tool" to button "Tools" of stack "revMenuBar" or send "menuPick" && "Pointer Too...

Re: Processing Multi-dimension Arrays

Hi wlaughto, That is the way I always process JSONToArray data arrays. I think its pretty elegant and a simple way to drill down to your selected keys and elements, which is easy to read and understand when you come back to your code at a later date. Just as a helper, I usually add a treeview widget...

Re: A small PR rant

A friend of mine works for The European Space Agency (ESA) in Darmstadt about half an hour by tram from where I live and he does a lot of programming mainly in C++ and Java, we got to talking about the merits and p...

Re: New Video : Lets hack the LiveCode IDE with a plugin

Ah yes, of course it should be destroyStack and not destroyMode. I've made a note in the video description. Thanks for pointing this out. Hopefully no mistakes next time! I will be covering special folders in the next video, anything you think should be included, gotchas etc. Obviously this YouTube ...
