Re: Another attempt at 3D external using openb3d

Is this an old style External or a LC9 widget/library (i.e the DLL is wrapped using LiveCode Builder)?

Re: Slithery sliders

That's very slick Richmond, and I'm glad the thread inspired something. This google search illustrates what I was originally looking for (while there are some exceptions in the images that come up, most are on-off 2-position switches that are a "thumb" (often circular) in a oval or rectangular "swit...

Re: Distance between 2 rectangles.

Well! I was only asking about Rectangles, but, yes it can be done for blobs too :-) I've closed my un-scientific poll over on the USE-LIST. The consensus is (as Richard chimed in) nearest edges, vertices, or (for blobs) points). While there are certainly a *lot* of ways to figure distance between re...

Re: Distance between 2 rectangles.

So I was the original poster on the LC USE-LIST (Email list). The original poll was what the most common mental definition people had to the question of "the distance between to arbitrary rectangles (r,1,r2)" Do people think of that as: center to center? nearest corner to nearest corner? nearest edg...

Re: Create Folder with Sandboxed Mac App doesn't work

I wouldn't be too quick to blame LiveCode. From what I have seen on Apple's own developer forums, you are likely to run into entitlement problems regardless of what development tool you use - including Apple's own. At the risk of starting a platform war, I think the problem here is solely on Apple. ...

Re: Create Folder with Sandboxed Mac App doesn't work

I have a similar problem creating folders in specialFolderPath("temporary") under Catalina or Big Sur. The error appears to happen only from an externally loaded stack. i.e. if my signed and notarized app tries to create a temporary folder, it works, but if I load a stack external (to my signed and ...

Re: Livecode Drawing Standalone

I see you example use mouseEnter and mouseLeave. I have noticed that mouseMove, inside of which you can does tests line "if (x,y) is within tDrawingRect then ...", DOES NOT seem to get send when the chosen tool is the Pointer tool. Is that why you use mouseEnter/mouseLeave? Are there other message c...

Livecode Drawing Standalone

I have an old stack (built under LC 4.6.4) that has a component that does some simple drawing. There is a tool bar (some buttons and menus) and below that a drawing area (a scrolling group) A mouseMove handler sets the tool to the *pointer tool* or the graphics tool (with the applicable type set in ...

Re: locate language app

It is a shame that mobileCurrentLocale() and/or mobilePreferredLanguages() have not yet been generalized for all platforms (i.e. as currentLocale() and preferredLanguages() ) as these attribute are universal on all LiveCode platforms (except perhaps HTML5 where the question would be locale and langu...

Re: Associating additional Documents types for a Standalone

Hmm, 38 people (well I guess 37 no counting myself) have views this post with no replies. Does no one know how to do this? Or is everyone who does know busy building awesome Windows standalones with multiple documents types?

Associating additional Documents types for a Standalone

So in LiveCode's Staandalone builder, we can specify an icon for the application and a file extension and icon for a single document. How do we add more icons and associated file extensions to a standalone under OSX and Windows. For OSX, after you build the standalone, you can open the app bundle an...

OSX About and Help menu issue under LC676

I have an application that when built into a standalone under LC665, for OSX, the About and Help menu work fine. The same application built under LC676 for OSX results in the all menu items under the Help menu (except for Apple's default search) greyed out and "About <appname>" under the <applicatio...
