Re: Buttonbar

Have you seen this? https://livecode.com/extensions/button-bar/1-0-1/ Well, I, for one, hadn't. - Screen Shot 2020-10-25 at 10.14.16 am.png - BUT it suffers from the same "nanky-poo" as the other types of widgets of this sort: 1. Cannot use your own icons/SVGs/ what-have-ye. 2. Someone's obsession ...

Re: Possible play YouTube embedded video?

Do you mean:

1. I want to embed a film in a Livecode stack and then play it.

or

2. I want to play a youtube film that is on youtube's site in a stack?

This is dead easy . . . although, in a perfect world, it would be even better if one
could extend the dimmed out area to the edge of one's monitor, as per your
screenshot of a macOS app.

Re: custom 'widgets'

Aha.

Well: I can see how you can prepare popover shapes, but to dim the surroundings, presumably, involves
images with a semi-transparent section.

Re: Padding lines with spaces?

Thanks to the good offices of Klaus . . . Who "reminded" me about formattedWidth - richtInDowp.jpeg - You can try this sort of thing: on mouseUp put 1 into LYNE repeat until line LYNE of fld "myLIST" is empty put the formattedWidth of line LYNE of fld "myLIST" into line LYNE of fld "sL2" add 1 to LY...

Re: custom 'widgets'

Err, what's that?

Are you, possibly, trying to spin off a standalone that allows end-users to do some sort of programming
themselves?

Re: custom 'widgets'

I think both us maybe missing each other's point. :D Anyway: I've just knocked a stack together that has NO problem changing a property in BROWSE mode: on mouseUp if the label of me is "GO RED" then set the backgroundColor of grc "RP" to red set the label of me to "GO GREEN" else set the backgroundC...

Re: Padding lines with spaces?

I suppose you could count the number of characters in a line, BUT with most fonts letters are NOT all the same length. Counting the letters in a line should be dead easy. Something like this: on mouseUp put 1 into LYNE repeat until line LYNE of fld "myLIST" is empty put the number of chars in line L...

Re: custom 'widgets'

The properties of an object are stored in an array . . .

You can do this sort of thing:

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
   put the properties of grc "xxx" into propARRAY
   combine propARRAY by row
   put propARRAY into fld "fPROPS"
end mouseUp

Re: custom 'widgets'

what do you gain by making it a widget?
I am still trying to work out what is so big about widgets; the only thing I can see about
them is that, instead of stacks made by other users, they are extremely difficult to tweak to one's own needs,
