Re: Calendar widget

Is there a way to get the calendar widget to respond to a mouseUp message? It did not respond to one when I put that handler into the widget's script. As a workaround experiment,I tried making the widget its own group and put the message there. Of course,I could create a button as a control that wo...

Re: dg2 row re-ordering

Save the order, or the entire order "history", in a custom property. Then you can restore it at will, anywhere in the list. This begs the issue of the user changing the contents, as opposed to the line order. You have to watch how and when you update that history. Craig Hi Craig, That's more or les...

Re: dg2 row re-ordering

how can your user "re-order" your dg? No script(s) involved where you can "hook on"? Klaus Hi Klaus, in the new dg2 there is a control you can enable on the right side of the DG that allows re-ordering rows (it is part of dgEditMode in DG2). However, I don't see anyway to actually be notified that ...

Re: Copying scripts to text file

So at the moment I'm drafting the UI for this, a way to drop two different versions of a stack file into the window and review a list of property and script diffs, applying them selectively as one sees fit. Progress has been slowed by client project needs, but work continues in the late hours as ti...

dg2 row re-ordering

Is there a quick and easy way in LC to tell if a DG2 has had its rows re-ordered? I have a DG2 that currently lets users: add/delete rows, edit rows, and modify widgets and all of these are detectable and can be used to trigger a save to disk (for permanent storage). However, for row re-ordering I h...

Re: Resize items in Rows of Form

..... It appears that getting some sleep made my research into how to solve this more productive. For Reference for anyone else that gets stuck on this: Within your resize script you have to specifically target the row template, make your changes, to the row template, and then refresh your row temp...

My client has an artist who makes these, he uses Photoshop. The free Graphic Converter app will also measure in pixels.
Thanks Jacque,

I wish I was so lucky -- having real graphic skills is a definite asset in the LC universe.

Re: Suddenly resizing for a different size device

It isn't too important what sizes the launch screens are, but you should provide a representative mix of common screen sizes. I'm using: 750x1334 1242x2208 2048x2732 Hi Jacque, if you don't mind me asking, what do you use to create these screens? I thought I would start with a screen shot and then ...

Re: sim question

Is there anyway to download the "container" from the simulator, similar to what you can do with Xcode when you install on a real iPhone device? (I think "container" goes by various names, including sandbox?). I've tried switching to "simulator" in Xcode (from "Device") but don't see anything when I...

Re: Copying scripts to text file

Script Tracker by Brian Milby on the forum here takes all of the scripts from any stack and puts them in text files so that you can use Git or whatever to track them or edit them externally. An essential piece of software for me. https://github.com/bwmilby/scriptTracker Thanks again Brian! Thanks K...

Re: Copying scripts to text file

Can you tell us more about the goals you're looking to serve with such a tool? Yeah, recently someone sent me some hacks to my program, but with little information provided and no "in code" identification I couldn't find them. So I was looking for a quick way to compare the two versions to see if i...

Copying scripts to text file

Are there any utilities around for copying all of the scripts to a text file, for documentation purposes or using in "compare" exercises?

lock recent

Hi, I am trying to figure how lock recent works since I want to prevent a card from going into the recents list. I've created a stack with 3 cards; A, B, C. Anytime I go to B, whether it is directly as in "go card B" or indirect via "go back" or "go previous" I use lock recent. Anytime I open any of...
