Re: Concurrent loop/string processing to speed up Livecode

Since those who know haven't answered, I'm guessing "true" has the primary advantage of simplifying testing the existence of a key.
You may be right, that sounds like a very Waddingham thing to do.

Re: menu checkmark on linux

I think in general "menu" refers to the menu bar (which uses pulldown menu buttons exclusively.) Other menu button types are used in the stack content and are usually referred to by the full descriptive name. I can see how this could be confusing to a new user and I agree more clarification in the l...

Re: Concurrent loop/string processing to speed up Livecode

Thanks. Yes, the description was clear enough. It host seemed a curious choice to have a specific string as the default value. I'm assuming there was a reason for that choice; it might be useful to know what that reason was. I'm guessing it was strictly arbitrary, you have to put *something* in the...

Re: Saving takes over 20 minutes

I also wonder what's making the stack so large. Do you have a lot of imported images? If so, consider including the images as separate files and load them by reference instead. That may cut down on the build time. It's also important to choose inclusions manually. Usually long build times are becaus...

Re: Concurrent loop/string processing to speed up Livecode

The example in the dictionary that follows the "as set" description is not an example of "as set" but rather a generic array example. If you split as set you'd get this: KEY VALUE A apple true B bottle true C cradle true The original list becomes the keys and a default value of "true" is assigned to...

Re: importing date from text file and storing in sqlite

I know almost nothing about databases but whenever I need to query one for a date, my database guy says it has to be in this format: 20191130 For this, you can use a date field in the database. If you want to store it as you do now then I assume it must be a text field. But my guess is that using SQ...

Re: Round app icon on Android Oreo

Sorry, I haven't pursued it, I've just stayed with the original icons so I'm not sure how it would work. The info I gave above was based on what I'd read on the mailing list but it was a long time ago. I wonder if we need to submit a feature request.

Re: Selecting Groups

LC uses the setting in its prefs file on launch so if you didn't delete that when updating it will be whatever it was last set to in any version. There's a prefs setting for that? Part of my response was an assumption, but it seems to follow the same rules as window sizes and positions and other UI...

Re: Current state of software?

This is probably a good question to ask LC support directly. If you list out the features you require they will be honest in their replies.

Re: mobile player control with hidden controls

I haven't tried it but you could test with a mouseUp handler in the card to see if the tap will register there. If so, the handler can check if the tap was within the player rect, or some other condition, and respond.

Re: Datagrid: changing cell style

The row template for list style DGs is not editable? It's been a long time since I used it, but unless things have changed there is no template for the basic table display. Like you, I find regular LC fields sufficient for what I do, but I think they'd be useful for situations where there may be mo...
