Re: Trying to make Array work in repeat

@PaulDaMacMan Appreciate the explanation. By the way, I am reading/looking on your repo to get some ideas especially on syntax in LCB. Hopefully you don't mind :D Mind!?!?! I'm super-happy about it! Encouraging LiveCode-Builder adoption and code-sharing are the very reasons I've put all my LCB stuf...

Re: Raspberry Pi 400

I'm not familiar with the details of Apple's macOS ARM implementation, but the company has a long history of CPU changes (68k to PPC, PPC to x86, x86 to x86-64) so I would imagine they'd provide transitional support as they have in the past. Yeah, they're providing Rosetta 2.0. Rosetta 1.0, built i...

Re: Extra 'title bar' in new stack

Paul. I do not see what you are seeing, and your pictures do not show the "show/hide" thing you mentioned. Anyway, nothing changed. Craig It's a bit tricky, try it multiple times, and be very quick when bringing up the view menu after you switch back from the Finder (before the LC Engine has a chan...

Re: Extra 'title bar' in new stack

This has been discussed at length, but not to my satisfaction, FWIW. What you're seeing isn't a title bar per se, but a tab. You'll see this in any window the OS believes is a "document", which in LiveCode means only toplevel stacks. But toplevel stacks are used for all sorts of things, only someti...

Re: Need help taking LC project to Web, Android, maybe Macs

Thanks for the quick reply and offer. Does that mean you were able to download the program from GitHub, so you would only need to make a standalone on your Mac? I may take up your offer when the final version is done. On a related question, how do you distribute the app? I cannot email an .exe atta...

Re: Trying to make Array work in repeat

@jun no worries, I think we're basicallly all still newbs when it comes to LiveCode Builder I'm guessing the pArray you are passing in is coming from LiveCode Script? I think LCS stores data in it's arrays a bit differently than LCB. At any rate it is definitely a variable typing error. Keep in mind...

Re: MIDI Synthesizer with FluidSynth

OK, so I got SoundFont 3 format (unofficial format OGG/Vorbis compressed) sound banks loading AND MIDI-to-WAVE working on macOS (10.12.6) HOWEVER, I had to revert to an earlier version of libFluidSynth (loads as 2.0.5 instead of current 2.1.5, which is actually 2.3.5... don't ask me, I don't underst...

Re: MIDI Synthesizer with FluidSynth

Just an update for anyone interested: I've just added Reverb and Chorus FXs handlers (effects applied to all channels) for those two built-in FXs, it looks like there is also a built-in Low-Pass/High-pass filter that can be used but I did not yet add that to the LCB wrapper. WARNING!!! I take no res...

Re: Logic behind put URL or PUT URL into a variable

Perhaps a better analogy would be a template container, not an actual container until it is used?

Re: Logic behind put URL or PUT URL into a variable

Updated my previous post, I was mixed up, the version that DOES work as URL does NOT work as a Card Fld, it's actually the reverse, which seems to support the idea of it being inconsistent to behavior of other containers. Maybe. Are users required to put parentheses around field names? No, but neith...

Re: Logic behind put URL or PUT URL into a variable

I always think of URL operator as a container like a variable or a card field except that container is a file/resource somewhere (locally / internet), and in that context it makes sense to me, I think that's correct. When the URL term was updated back in the MetaCard days, the new feature descripti...

This post in honor to the memory of Hermann Hoch, R.I.P. Thank You HH! Not really documented anywhere AFAIK, but when you need to receive a string from a pointer to a C Char string ( *char) from a function in a foreign library, there is a function in libFoundation to convert a Pointer to a zero term...

Re: Logic behind put URL or PUT URL into a variable

It's so unlike how the rest of the language works I'm tempted to consider it a bug. I always think of URL operator as a container like a variable or a card field except that container is a file/resource somewhere (locally / internet), and in that context it makes sense to me, because in one you're ...
