encrypt/decrypt & choosing a cipher

Hello, I was happy to see the functions, not so happy with the documentation. After doing a bunch of internet searching eventually I got the idea that picking a cipher was pretty much a personal preference because discovering the differences between ciphers requires more knowlege and research than I...

Re: Referencing standard directories and applicationFolder

Excellent,
Thanks.
Now there is a more recent reference to this information - I could not find it in the most recent 12 pages of topics.

Referencing standard directories and applicationFolder

Hi, Coming from developing applications using Xcode on MacOSX. On the Mac, there are a number of folders where stuff is supposed to go. Some of it is relative to the current user's home folder and some of it is relative to the application itself. I seem to remember something similar with Windows, bu...

Re: Equivalent of classes in LiveCode

Hi, Has there been any updates since Sept 4? Another question: I am looking at the processes of using this and trying to figure the best way to implement classes and group them so that they are convenient to use. Since many have absolutely no UI, it seems that a subStack per class makes sense. Norma...

Re: Equivalent of classes in LiveCode

Looking better to me with every iteration. Once we have opened Pandora's Box allowing for parameters to a class constructor, yes one has to allow for an unknown number. Fortunately that code is simple and little impact if there are no extra parameters. An example of extraction code for the construct...

Re: What Users want from the next version of LiveCode

Thierry's BBEdit Language Module for LiveCode.

He is too busy to clean up and document and release.

Please buy it from him (and then contract him to keep it up to date)!

Re: Equivalent of classes in LiveCode

Hi, I just checked out Mark's updated OOPEngine from gitHub. I opened the OOPEngine.livecode file and for the first time, opened the Card Scripts. I found out why there are newClass and deleteClass scripts. Below is the openStack handler for that card. Apparently there was the expectation of storing...

Re: Equivalent of classes in LiveCode

Hi Guys, Now a meeting of the minds, a single updated OOPEngine? I compared the OOPEngine version 4 (internal version 1.1.0) from Mark with the OOPEngine from Brian that I received embedded in the SuperClassCalls stack (thinking that is Brian's latest version since it also has an internal version 1....

Re: BBEdit 12.5 Language module for LC

Hi, While I posted interest before, so posting again does not add to the customer count... I am really hoping this release happens sooner than later. I just spent the last month doing more learning of LiveCode and I am now going to be starting real projects soon. Not excited about LiveCode's editing...

Re: Equivalent of classes in LiveCode

Mark, I added a call to a handler like Mark suggests to the middle class in the class hierarchy. see below... Andrew- sorry, I no longer have any idea what you're talking about. Where did this code come from? Is that part of the CTransact class? I don't think I suggested anything like that. Whatever...

Re: Equivalent of classes in LiveCode

The class hierarchy in my code is: CBaseRow CTransact CSplit CBudget Base class has: void CTransact::retrieveRecordData(sqlite3_stmt *ppStmt) Assuming CSplit is subclassed from CTransact: There's no need for CSplit::retrieveRecordData(sqlite3_stmt *ppStmt)... just retrieveRecordData(sqlite3_stmt *pp...

Re: Equivalent of classes in LiveCode

Brian, I can see circumstances where having those "entry" handlers you wrote as being useful and other cases where it is just extra code to write. I think it would be useful to have them described in the OOPengine stack as an implementation suggestion and how having such handlers helps. (and also ex...

Re: Equivalent of classes in LiveCode

Hi, I went through Brian's SuperClassCalls code. And when you get down to it, once I learned about the implied targets and then subsequently invented superFunction/superCommand handlers, there is no way to avoid specifying the class name in the process of making a call up/down the class hierarchy. E...

Re: Equivalent of classes in LiveCode

Hi, Are you trying to simulate function overloading by giving the same name to functions in different scripts? I don't see the advantage of that here, and you'll end up with weird roundabouts in trying to deal with it, as you're discovering. Function overloading is exactly what superFunction/superCo...

Re: Equivalent of classes in LiveCode

...and with regard to your superCommand and superFunction handlers, note that they're already taken care of by the messageObject handler in the OOPEngine stack script. I really wish it was. I started with using that function and was really confused when what I expected did not happen. Either that, ...
