Re: Not a number is a number, problem

Even weirder IMO is this. put NAN is a number gives true Assuming this mysterious NAN means "not a number" then surely when asked what type it is it should not be numeric? Equally, this is weird. put NaN/0 gives nan Meanwhile put "xero" is NaN gives false Surely some nonsense word delimited by quota...

Re: Android Studio - Additional JDK not needed (Solution to Java is none error)

I assume you're on OS X. Are you logged in as Admin (just a wild guess)? It's possible there's some difference between your version of OS X and mine (my Apple box is about 5 years old, just pondering a M1 Mac). I have set the visible of the button to find the JDK, using the command in the MessageBox...

Re: JDK Path: None

I went through this recently. This may be more complex than you would hope to use as a solution. I used this solution on both Windows and OSX

Re: tree view widget - array key doesn not exist error

Does the array that's in the tree get repopulated? Or are the array values fixed? Could it be an encoding issue (those subkeys look like they are in Finnish - not that I can really recognise Finnish :roll: ). I've been using tree view on LC 9.6.1 on Mac OSX with no problems. And my array is larger/m...

Re: File rename command and issue with privileges

if there is anyway of granting a Livecode Application the SUDO privilege sudo (generally) requires a password. The standard way round this is to edit the sudoers file to stipulate that a particular account name should not require a password. If this is for a convenience utility for yourself you cou...

Re: GLX2 script editor released for Revolution

I can't reproduce what I thought I saw with the script not having changes saved following compilation & re-opening.

Immediate colorisation is not working, but if the script is compiled, GLX2 closed & reopened, then the script is colorized.

Re: GLX2 script editor released for Revolution

I'll try and replicate what appeared to happen re: saving. BTW latest version of GLX2 also stripped all colorization (I'd forgotten that until you mentioned it). I'm pretty sure the earlier version (with html entity problem) had colorization working. Is it possible that the fix for html entities has...

Re: revQueryDatabase returns different result sets compared to revDataFromQuery

I can't see what's wrong with that Lesson that would result in these differences. As the revData... operations have been in use for 20 years or so, I think if your results were common this would have been picked up and resolved long ago. How are you determining this discrepancy in result set size. A...

Re: GLX2 script editor released for Revolution

Bernard - I've just posted the latest version to github. It's now escaping all five html entities. Richard- I spent a few days experimenting with switching this over to styledText and found that it's just not up to the task. Was a nice idea, but unfortunately I'm still stuck with htmlText. Mark, th...

Re: playloudness property of player object missing

I believe the OP is correct. This is missing from the Dictionary if you look at the entry for the Player control. This lists a whole series of properties (and a summary for each). PlayLoudness is not in that list. So if you know that property should exist you can find it, but if you were learning wh...

Re: Mobile Native Essentials Widget Pack

I don't have the control to which you refer. However, seeing as you are new here, can I ask: do you have a handler like this in the script of that widget: on hiliteChanged answer the long time end hiliteChanged In the IDE, does this show you a different time every time you change the state of the co...

Re: Mobile Browser Widget Crashes

a) Does your PDF display in the browser widget if you run the code in the IDE? b) try launch url "file:" & specialFolderPath("documents") & "/sample.pdf" In the IDE this will at least test that there's nothing wrong with your path/filename or the PDF itself in relation to the widget. You could then ...

Re: GLX2 script editor released for Revolution

I was just looking at GLX2 after a decade away from it. I wanted to look at using the folders feature to organise a script only stack that's over a thousand lines long. But after adding a return to the script it wouldn't compile (in the chalkboard interface, I could see no error message). At first i...

Re: Android Studio - Additional JDK not needed (Solution to Java is none error)

Once I'd got it all installed and working, I started to strip out as much of the Android IDE as I could (in fact, I'm testing on physical devices). However, when searching for what to do with Android (I've not done anything with it for some years, and didn't any longer have a machine with Android to...
