Re: Double title bars on Mac

Thanks suggestions but none of them work. Seriously ... is there a way that I can make the second title bar go away? It's proving to be a real problem now as every new stack has two bars.

Re: Double title bars on Mac

The tabs could be quite useful on occasions if I could easily turn it off and on ... multiple stacks in one window and script editor in one tab and stack proper in another. But not being able to turn off the tab feature is a right pain at the moment. I'm using LC 9.0.1 RC 1 (on Mac) Stack1.jpg Stack...

Double title bars on Mac

This problem has arisen earlier with suggested solution Cmd-Shift-t & return to make second title bar disappear. It also goes away when "resize" option is off.

All of my stack windows are showing double title bars and, despite trying a number of things, I simply can't turn it off.

Any help welcome!

Re: Using image object SVG Support to display an image in a widget?

Thanks Mark. I wrote a simple LCB widget script with a single property which was the image data, and then a couple of lines of LC script when the widget was running to copy across the text from an SVG widget into the property ... but as you have already realised it didn't work. I will file a bug rep...

Re: Using image object SVG Support to display an image in a widget?

Thanks Hermann :D

I have been playing around with the property idea ... but writing out image data to a temporary file and then reading back into the widget seems more straightforward. I'll give it a go!

Using image object SVG Support to display an image in a widget?

The SVG support in DP 11 works exactly as advertised. There are many instances however when it would be really helpful to display an SVG image from within a widget as well. LCB has the command: put image from data tData into tImage ... but I can't quite figure out how to access the data (text) of an...

Could you create as a library rather than a widget?

Re: revigniter removing index.lc from URL

Thanks advice and it all works exactly as advertised placing .htaccess in the web-server domain root. One tip I learned for others using C-Panel ... the 'File Manager' by default hides files beginning with dot. If you go to File Manager -> Settings and select "Show Hidden Files (dotfiles)" then voil...

revigniter removing index.lc from URL

Apologies for the newbie question, but I am learning revigniter hosted using on-rev. I would like to remove the index.lc reference from my url. The documentation describes how to remove this as reproduced below ... but I don't understand how to create a .htaccess file or where to place it. Any advic...

erratic IDE layout behavior with multiple monitors

I use a modern MacBook Pro together with an older 23" Apple Cinema HD second display. When the displays (using System Preferences -> Displays) are arranged in a conventional side-by-side way with the tops of each display aligned, the layout of the Livecode IDE works as expected. When I "arrange" the...

Re: Gauge widget

Thanks Bernd this is a great widget. I can already think of a couple of ways to use your gauge ... and more importantly you demonstrate further how Livecode Builder helps us build controls that are powerful and scale perfectly on any platform. You are right that LCB does have a reasonable learning c...
