Templates

I found "template" recently in the dictionary. Other than that, I have not found much info about where it might be advantageous to use them or really even how to use them . Please point me to a LC Lesson, video, or any source which I can use to better understand them. If I understand correctly, the ...

Is there a way to bookmark the Dictionary/Guides stack when using the version in the IDE?

Re: Nothing new here

OP here... At first I was going to ask the OP how a new card could be made that way at all with such a peculiar construction. I have been watching videos and looking at LC Lessons. I picked it up somewhere in them or here on the forum. Anyway, I did not just get lucky trying to use English like cons...

Re: LC Syntax

mainly because I'd never call a card something (such as "firstCard") that seemed remarkably near to some sort of internal name the LiveCode engine might be using. Thank you, Richmond. The name "firstCard" would have never made it to a real app. I just wrote that for posting here. Thanks for the tip...

[SOLVED] LC Syntax

I am creating a card dynamically along with controls on the card. One control is a button. In trying to set the script of the button with: set the script of button "theNewButton" to "on mouseUp" & CR & tab & "go to card "firstCard"" & CR & "end mouseUp" I get the error (Handler: can't find handler) ...

Re: Creating and destroying cards/controls dynamically

Gracias.

Yes, practice...that is what I am doing. I am reading, learning, watching the old conferences, and most currently, Lockdown Learning. When I cannot find what I need, I don't hesitate to ask here.

[SOLVED] Creating and destroying cards/controls dynamically

I just learned how to create a new card while my app is running by using "new card". Simple. I also created a new button on that card but it's properties are not necessarily as easy. In the Property Inspector, in the Size and Position tab, there is a button for "Fit Content". What is the syntax for ...

Re: Custom scrollbar

In your original post you mentioned a LC lesson. I have not explored it and this may have been included in the lesson. If you have not found Marty's Sliders, let me know and I will upload it here.

Re: Scroll bar

Thanks. I was not asking for myself. I found an old .rev stack that might work for the OP.

[SOLVED]Scroll bar-Ignore or delete this thread.

I found the thread. Ignore or delete this thread.



Wasn't there a post in one of the forums a few days ago where someone wanted to create a new scroll bar? I cannot seem to find it.

Re: Brand New! Need a hand

I know that this is from a few years ago but, Richard, you gave me a laugh tonight. Thanks. I fell for it and started watching the video. As for tech lingo, this video should help make LiveCode seem much clearer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ac7G7xOG2Ag Just remember to never reset the cardinal g...
