advice for speeding up parts of my script

Astonished by how many seconds parts of my scripts are taking! ************************************************************************* PART #1... which takes 10 secs, even after trying (a) "offset" instead of "is not among", and (b) replacing t_chars_allowed_for_Roman_reference with the actual set...

compass slooow

Setup: Windows 7 / LC Community 7.1.4 & 8.0.1 / Nexus 5 & Nexus 7 Using as-is the ABC stack "Mobile Compass.livecode", I built an apk, emailed it to my device and installed. But when the app opens on either Nexus device, the action is slow enough that a "wait/kill" message appears and North is never...

Re: AE's "Use me" checkbox

[quote="malte"]Hi Nicolas: Does it come checked or unchecked. I am a little confused. :-) Malte[/quote] Oops. I meant I'd like AE to open up with the checkbox checked. So I don't have to check it in the LC IDE when making stacks. But if you're not keen on automagically :wink: using it when it gets o...

AE's "Use me" checkbox

Hello Malte, For a while now I've had my LC plugins set so that AE3.0 automatically opens up everytime. AE is *that* invaluable! A little thing has been bugging me, though. When AE gets opened up as a plugin, the "Use me" checkbox is unchecked. Is there a way that it could open up unchecked? It's tr...

Re: constrainRectangular ... and doubleMouseUp?

Thanks Malte. But, during debugging found mouseDoubleDown was being read (even though there's no handler for it in my script), and figured that it was happening during the time it took my messy constrainRectangularCallback and constrainRectangularExit handlers to finish executing, so reconsidered th...

constrainRectangular ... and doubleMouseUp?

Hello Malte, I posted this first on the LC list. Apologies for crossposting to here. I have a script that does not always work as expected. I think the problem is related to constrainRectangular, and is perhaps trigerred by mouseDoubleDown or mouseDoubleUp. But I'm not sure. From the student's point...

Re: how to close AE

[quote="malte"]To permanently remove AE from memory in a standalone delete stack "animationEngine" is your best bet. Offer stands. If you feel compfortable with sending the stack, I will take a look.

Re: how to close AE

[quote="malte"] can you boil this down to an offending line of script that causes the crash? Which operating system is this on? I by the way have no trouble signing any sort of NDA before looking at other people's stacks. as I do work as a consultant, I do see quite a lot of projects and can say, I ...

Re: how to close AE

[quote="malte"]Hey Nicolas! If you see a crash of the engine, I really would love to help track this down. Even though AE should not do anything that may cause a crash (as it is a nothing more than a stack) I would really like to be able to tell what is causing it. So if you are interested, could yo...

Re: how to close AE

Oops. "Delete stack" does work in a script.

Problem was that the IDE's Application Browser was still listing AE. But closing and reopening the Application Browser confirmed that AE had indeed been closed by my script using "delete stack".

Hello. The script below works during development, and it also works when it's part of a standalone stack (.exe). But the very same script, when it is part of a stack that's been opened by another stack, will cause a crash when it gets to aeCrossFade gets. on mouseUp // Check if AE is available if "a...

AE doc's "Info" field effect

Hello Malte, Each of the examples in the AE documentation consists of a drop-down (easein?) effect with a simple arrow-less scrollbar and a button (?) that switches between close/open. Could you post here what objects and scripts are required to recreate all of that? Either that or the AE password :...
