Re: macOS error when running AppleScript in a stack on a server

Yes, I added the entitlements file and signed my app with it. I also checked if the entitlements were in the app with this command and they were: codesign -d --entitlements :- /Applications/MyApp.app Executable=/Applications/MyApp.app/Contents/MacOS/MyApp <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOC...

Re: macOS error when running AppleScript in a stack on a server

OK, some more in this talking-to-myself topic. Looks like I might need an Entitlements file with com.apple.security.automation.apple-events set to true. Will explore that route further. Not sure how to do that easily in LiveCode. Read something about Levure, but it seems a lot of overkill. Will expl...

Re: macOS error when running AppleScript in a stack on a server

After disabling System Integrity Protection, the problem is gone... But I don't really want to tell people: "Hey, if you want to use this tool, please disable System Integrity Protection"... :roll:

Re: macOS error when running AppleScript in a stack on a server

Still trying to get to the bottom of this. I'm now using a standalone application and no longer using a launcher application and a livecode file on a server. I've signed the app, but my AppleScript which is sending System Events does not work. Console shows me this: "Since sending application [sess=...

macOS error when running AppleScript in a stack on a server

I'm working on a small project for myself and a few other people. I'm using a launcher stack saved as a standalone. This launcher opens a Livecode stack which resides on a server. The stack loads and runs fine. However, the stack tries to run a small Applescript at some point and some people, mostly...

Re: Is it possible to encrypt some data in the Community Edition?

My script is making a curl call to a website using the shell command. The API key is in the curl call and I don’t want people to see my API key.

Is it possible to encrypt some data in the Community Edition?

I’m working on a small project for a very limited audience. I’m using the Community Edition and it’s absolutely fine that they can see my code. But I’m also using an API key stored in a field that I’m using for a call and I’d like to keep that key private. Is that possible at all in the Community Ed...

Re: Isn't it possible to set Cmd-Shift-1 as keyboard shortcut for a menu item?

Thanks Klaus and Richmond! This 'thing' about CMD-SHIFT-1 has already been mentioned elsewhere by the same OP. Uhh, did I really talk about this before? May be I did, my memory fails me (wouldn't be the first time). :shock: Mind you, inside LiveCode, at least, SHIFT-CMD-anything is a problem Yes, an...

Isn't it possible to set Cmd-Shift-1 as keyboard shortcut for a menu item?

I'm creating a standalone app for use on a Mac. I have a menu with 4 menu items. Menu item 1 uses Cmd-1 Menu item 2 uses Cmd-2 Menu item 3 uses Cmd-Shift-1 Menu item 4 uses Cmd-Shift-2 At least.... that what's I would like them to be. But the menu displays: Menu item 1: Cmd-1 Menu item 2: Cmd-2 Menu...

Re: Converting Unicode codes to readable text

Aw, many thanks for this Thierry, this is excellent! And I don't worry about long texts, because I should be dealing with sentences only. :)

Re: Converting Unicode codes to readable text

Thanks Jacque and Thierry. Thierry, for my own small project I can't really afford a paid external, but it's good to know that it's there and I've made note of it, may be I will use it some time in the future. For now I've used a repeat loop which finds each \uXXXX string and replaces it with the ac...

Re: Converting Unicode codes to readable text

Thanks for this richmond62! So it does look like I need to convert each character one by one. Was hoping that Livecode had some function for this that I overlooked, but I guess not. I’ll figure out a way to make sure the space gets preserved. Thanks again.

Re: Converting Unicode codes to readable text

No, I checked both the returned JSON output and the API docs and encoding isn’t mentioned anywhere.
