Re: Opening Documents By Double-clicking

I recently used the solution I posted Nov 30, 2012, shown just above, derived from Jan's excellent post. But the switch statement in my handler was followed, unconditionally, by a "pass" statement. That made LiveCode send the "appleEvent" message further up the message path. And that caused lots of ...

Re: Help Us Take LiveCode Open Source

Monte, I know that Apple's policies are out of RunRev's control. I am a fan of RunRev and its new open source initiative. It's just that the combo was causing me concern. Open source changes the situation because RunRev is changing its license structure to adapt. The license fee schedule will become...

Re: Help Us Take LiveCode Open Source

Some of us want to develop applications and distribute them for free to the public. It's only slightly inconvenient to distribute a Mac application outside the Mac App Store but it's not really practical to distribute an iOS app to the public outside the App Store.

Re: Help Us Take LiveCode Open Source

Like many of the forum users I have made my pledge to support LiveCode Open Source, but I was wondering what will happen about us who have just purchased a commercial upgrade (a month ago) when Version 6 comes out with the new development environment. Will we get the upgrade free or will we have to...

Re: Opening Documents By Double-clicking

Jan's solution is excellent. I wanted it to support an additional situation: On Mac OS, the user can select multiple documents and choose File > Open. The effect is as if he double-clicked them all, one at a time. This one change to the appleEvent handler takes care of that situation: case "aevtodoc...

Re: stack inside stack

Dixie, The problem that pmc posed was, I want my substack to be inside the panel of the Mainstack, which does not go beyond it(the mainstack). Something like an object, eg. Tab panel, which you put into a card. You see, the tab panel which you put in a card does not 'move' out from this card, it sta...

Re: stack inside stack

Here is a way to position one or more inner stacks (substacks) in an outer stack (mainstack) so that the inner stacks never move and never disappear under the outer stack. Create the inner stacks using the menu command "New Substack of Outer". Use the Application Browser to access the Property Inspe...
