Re: Rotating a graphic 360degrees in 60s

Craig,

here is a way to hide part of a line graphic that does not use inks. It is a lot easier to handle.
I use "dashes" instead.

Re: Rotating a graphic 360degrees in 60s

I haven't checked whether it/they have any similar techniques, look/feel or smoothness, but maybe one of Hermann's clock gizmos has something to investigate? Eg http://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?p=146898#p146898 Those are LCB-widgets and it is easy to do this kind of stuff in Livecode Builde...

Re: Rotating a graphic 360degrees in 60s

Craig, I set a line graphic, not to the points of an oval graphic but to an imaginary point of a crircle with a radius of 200 pixel. That way I can generate a point at that distance that accepts decimal degrees from the milliseconds. The oval graphic has no points. I am hiding the length of the line...

Re: Rotating a graphic 360degrees in 60s

Gentlemen,
Here is a little stack that moves the seconds smoothly at a frame rate of about 25.

I do not recomend this for the "clock" because it is very hard to implement.

Re: Rotating a graphic 360degrees in 60s

I'm trying to figure out, and not having much success, of how to have the arc of an oval rotate 360 degrees in 60 seconds, similar to that of the second hand of a clock. However, I don't want it pause at each second interval, ie it should sweep 360 degrees smoothly in 60s without stopping. Hi Glenn...

Re: Analogue clock

Glenn, I think what is confusing about the seconds handle is that in Livecode 0 degrees point to the right and an increase in degrees moves counter clockwise. That is what put (360 - tSecondsAngle + 90) into tSecondsAngle is for. I made a small stack that has a slider from 0 to 360 and that slider s...

Re: Line customisation

have a look at the stack I posted recently that demonstrates the formatting addition introduced in LC 5.5 Richard mentioned. It was done by Livecode's Benjamin Beaumont at the time. I think it is a nice demo that unfortunately was never really given the publicity it deserves. http://forums.livecode....

Re: Steganography Coder

Hi Xero, chartoNum and numToChar are both deprecated. Use numToByte and byteToNum instead. That will speed up the whole thing considerably, I think that is what Richard meant. And of course when addressing use byte instead of char. You are working on byte stuff, not chars. For chars use numToNativeC...

Hi stam, I changed your stack a bit: I moved the logic of your main group into the card script of a sub stack. There I changed the reference to "me" to the long id of the "real" me in your main stack. See card script of sub stack. I left the red dot graphic that shows up in edit mode only now if you...

Re: Buttonbar

You can change the icons of both the Navigation bar and the Header bar using the Properties Inspector by clicking on the icon and selecting another icon from font awesome. Font awesome is the SVG icon font used for the icons.
