Re: setting the focus with keyboard property on a field

1. Multiple monitor support. The mouse alignment frequently fail if you have different size monitors and often you lose the top of the window and the tool bars. (Two years or longer now) - Completely repeatable. This is where the mouse action (where you click) does not line up with the actual mouse...

Re: Answer dialog intermittently loses focus

That's definitely not correct behavior. Since you can click through the dialog sometimes, it sounds like a particular condition is causing the problem. It's still a bug though. Can you repeat it in a plain new test stack with only a few buttons?

Just by installing xCode 10 or higher the notarisation will be done.
I thought LC only built apps using the command-line tools. Does this also include notarization? There have been discussions on the mailing list about how to accomplish app notarization.

Re: Multiple Conditionals on if statement?

Also, a field with a single carriage return {or more) may look empty but it's not. If you aren't getting a syntax error but the result is not what you expect, that may be the reason. To get around this I sometimes check for the number of words in the field instead of empty. if {the number of words i...

Re: Runtime problem in MacOS Catalina

The app needs to be notarized and the notarization stapled to the app. This is Apple's new security requirement as of Catalina. It's a process I haven't had to go through yet but someone here may have links to tools that help with it. When I have time later I'll see if I can find the material I save...

Re: Invalid Connection ID SQLite

In this command: put pDatabaseID into sDatabaseID_med

It assumes the variable is a script local named sDatabaseID_med. Have you declared that at the top of the script? I don't think the problem is in the app installation, this sort of thing is almost always a script error.

Re: flushEvent on Android

Try mobileClearTouches. It doesn't clear everything but might be enough depending on what you need.

Re: Environment: which applies when?

The reason is that originally LC only produced desktop standalones. When mobile was added we needed a new term to differentiate.

Re: Identifying App folder Redux

Using the documents folder isn't just for mobile apps any more, desktop OSs are becoming more and more sensitive to file permissions due to malware prevention. I think your update plan is solid. In fact, it sounds like it would be pretty easy to auto-update the few small files. Provide an Update but...

Re: Test Target Greyed Out

Make sure the emulator is up and running and also that you have selected the Android build in standalone settings. If that doesn't work you may have to restart LiveCode.

Sorry 'jacque', I corrected the typo.

Okay. I was talking about sharing work during stack development where the type of license makes no difference. I think there's a misunderstanding, but no matter.

Re: Two developers same project ?

My quoted answer was written 4 years ago before we had script-only stacks. Now we are able to use those, which are plain text files, to track script changes and update your stacks. Brian Milby"s Script Tracker stack was created to do this easily. I don't have a link handy but a forum search should f...

Re: Identifying App folder Redux

I was remiss in not appending "for read" in the call to "open file", which might have caused the failure in Catalina
Yeah, that could very well be the problem. Fingers crossed, and let us know. That would be a permissions change the rest of us would need to know about.
