Re: Crashing all the time now

All.

Paul is in Windows, and Klaus and I are on a Mac. This means that it has nothing to do with my particular machine, nor with a particular OS.

There is something about the debugger that is the cause; I have not seen any issue with a stack simply doing its thing.

Re: Crashing all the time now

Richard. Oh, about 890 GB. I know that a billion is not what it used to be, but... Crashed again a little while ago. In the debugger, just poof. Blank screen. Restarted again. Watch this space. I know you have always said that LC should never crash. But how much does this depend on the machine and w...

Re: Crashing all the time now

Well, the whole thing may not be related to LC at all. After simply restarting my machine, I have been working just fine for the last two hours, mainly in the debugger in 9.5. On another note, one of the "crashes" last evening was because I got a dialog telling me that I could not save the stack I w...

Re: Crashing all the time now

Richard.

I am a little leery of using a not-yet-stable version. But I will make copies and try.

Thanks.

Crashing all the time now

This is getting a little scary. Same stack in both 9.0.4 and 9.5. Mac OS 10.13.4.

I am now saving every keystroke. This is happening while in the debugger. I actually upgraded to 9.5 hoping that my travail with 9.0.4 would improve.

Nope.

I will restart, and pray.

Re: Creating fillable PDF using Livecode

Hi. I understand. I make PDF's from LC as well. My point is that I do not think LC can make more than one kind of PDF, if indeed there are more than one kind at all. I do not know if there are editable PDFs, or whether it is just a matter of whether Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat is required. I know ...

Re: Creating fillable PDF using Livecode

Hi.

I am no expert, but once you have a PDF, you are no longer in LC's world. Are you using the full version of Adobe Acrobat? Does that allow editing in a typical PDF?

You have created a new car...

Re: Saving takes over 20 minutes

Ah,

"Saving" a standalone. I thought it was just "saving".

I always explicitly set inclusions, and the build (not save) process is much faster.

Re: importing date from text file and storing in sqlite

Hi. I cannot help you with any funny stuff going on with sqLite, but are you sure you are massaging the string: 30 Nov 2019 properly? I ask because you have to be doing something, since the convert command will not transform that string into dateItems without something else going on. Unless when you...

Re: Saving takes over 20 minutes

Saves in like 15 seconds when I made a local copy.
How big is that stack? Mine take 1/2 second.

Re: Saving takes over 20 minutes

Dave(?) certainly means a LC stack.

What happens if you try to save a brand new stack with nothing on it?

Re: Concurrent loop/string processing to speed up Livecode

Hi. Glancing at your handlers (do please put them into the "</>" space) you seem to be efficient in that you are only processing variables, and not ever, say, fields. That said, LC can only run one "process" at a time. So though you can perform what I call a "binary search", where you parse a datase...

Re: A Beginner's Question

Richard{2}

Please place handlers in the "</>" space, found just above the editable field. It makes it much easier to read. So like:

Code: Select all

Please place handlers in the ",/>" space, found just above the editable field. It makes it much easier to read
