Re: Converting Unicode codes to readable text

A bit quicker, but the same idea: function doTranslate pString set the itemDelimiter to "\u" if char 1 to 2 of pString = "\u" then delete char 1 to 2 of pString -- avoid empty first item repeat for each item i in pString put numToCodepoint("0x" & i) after tTranslation end repeat return tTranslation ...

Re: Updated Deadline for App Requirements

I asked about storyboards recently and the LC team is aware of the requirement. It will be supported in time for the deadline. A storyboard is a single image containing all the splash screens your app requires. Currently we provide separate images for each of those. Ideally the team will provide a w...

Re: Simple serial numbering for standalones

Just a formatting suggestion that avoids duplicate comparisons and combines actions into related sections: on returnInField put field "Serial1" into tNumber put (tNumber >= 856087687673 and tNumber <= 856087687683) into tIsValid if not tIsValid then answer "Not a valid serial number.

Re: LiveCode Drop Tools HELP

sorry for the late response it was this http://www.droptools.sonsothunder.com/ Ah. That was a pretty amazing offering from Ken Ray about 10 years ago (or more?) It has been unsupported for some time, replaced now by LC widgets which you can find in the LC tool palette. Ken's Drop Tools may have ins...

Re: Using entire iPhone X screen

Also, "exact fit" will distort the content if the screen isn't the same size ratio as the stack. ShowAll or noBorder are better choices, however these will also leave some blank areas if the ratios don't match. Setting a background color on the stack can alleviate some of that.

Re: Livecode suitability for game development

If you are thinking of a sort of point and click adventure game then LC is exceptionally well suited for it. Myst and Cosmic Osmo (Cyan) were created with HyperCard and Osmo was ported later to LiveCode. I've made a couple of card games, a Boggle game, and a match-three game. Memory usage will be in...

Re: Quarantine in the life of a LC programmer

What it means for me is that I'll spend my life talking to "little twonkums" on Zoom and what-have-ye for my EFL classes, and because my school has been shutdown I won't be able to split my day up into School versus Home-and-Programming. This is not going to be easy. 8) I had to figure this out yea...

Re: Application Loader - "No suitable application records were found"

Oh that. Right. If the app is compatible, LC 9.6dp3 has removed that info.plist key so you don't need to update the plist yourself.

Re: Application Loader - "No suitable application records were found"

You might also want to download and try Apple's Transporter app which has replaced Application Loader. You can find it in the Mac App Store. I think this solved a few issues for some people.

Re: ERROR ITMS-90174: "Missing Provisioning Profile

I always spelled it "duh", and I still do, but then the Simpsons came along and used DOH and everyone started spelling it that way, which mildly irritates me even still. It isn't pronounced "dough".

This should be my worst problem.

Re: Livecode for AI?

I knew someone who wrote a neural network in HyperCard, which was LiveCode's distant ancestor. That was many, many years ago but does show that the programming language isn't as important as the algorithms it drives. If you understand what needs to be done, I'm sure LC could do it. The hard part is ...

Re: LiveCode Drop Tools HELP

From what I understand, externals have largely been deprecated in favor of LiveCode Builder. Drop tools usually are small utilities or features that can be added to an app by users or developers. Those would correspond to LC widgets. But getting more info would help. It also may be that the employer...

Re: scrolling and clicking

The handler will be different depending on whether you are using a native mobile scroller or just a normal LC group. You won't get smooth scrolling with plain LC groups and the scrollbar is almost too small to use. Layout is also different depending on which method you use. If you are using a native...

Re: LiveCode 9.5.1 Community running slowly on Windows 10

What is auto bracketing? I do not see that in the preferences. I wasn't at my Mac when I wrote that so I forgot what it was called exactly. Bogs' image shows it, I should have said "bracket completion". And now that I've looked, I also use autoformat and control structure completion. From what I ha...
