Re: Windows 8.1 installer doesn't launch..

bogs-

I see from the video you're running ubuntu 16.04. That still has gksu in the distro. That's why you can install without sudo.
And since you're not using sudo to elevate privilege there's no interaction to make the button disappear.

Re: Windows 8.1 installer doesn't launch..

Well, I don't know about Windows but the problem is sorted out on linux in a weird way. Under the hood the problem of not launching when you click the button is fixed. But you can't run the installer on linux except using the command line, and that requires elevation of privilege. Modern linux distr...

Re: How to deal with more than one optional parameters in a function?

I deal with that situation like this: function myFunc param1, param2 if param1 is empty then put defaultValue1 into param1 end if if param2 is empty then put defaultValue2 into param2 end if do_things_here_with_param1_and_param2 end myFunc and then you can call myFunc as any of put myFunc() # defaul...

Re: unstable rawkeyDown

Even with commandKeyDown you're still going to have to deal with the fact that the keyboard is continuing to generate keydown events and the IDE is catching those events. Without actually going through the motions of checking I'd guess that an IDE library is catching the events once the stack script...

Re: unstable rawkeyDown

The keyboard hardware/software generates rawKeyDown events. If it didn't you'd never be able to type anything into modal stacks like the ask dialog. And the way the message path works is that the stack gets a chance to handle those events before the background libraries. So the rawKeyDown message is...

Re: unstable rawkeyDown

Craig- You're tripping over your own code here. If you hold down the key combination for a long enough time the keyboard repeat action is triggered. That causes another rawKeyDown message in the stack. ...and when your rawKeyDown handler hits the 'ask' statement, there's already a modal dialog on th...

Re: LiveCode on UNIX

The Talking LiveCode forum still has as its welcome message Welcome to the Solaris (and other 'nix) forum! Personally, I find wanting LC to run on *nix akin to wanting a verbatim HyperCard clone, 1-bit graphics and all. The last time I remember having any truck with UNIX itself was with minix, and t...

Re: Main stack wont show?!

:o I didn't remember that behavior in 1.1 at all. Interesting.
Not that I feel like emulating it, but interesting.
Seems like there should be some kind of indicator of what tool is currently selected, otherwise you'll accidentally just end up with buttons everywhere you touch.

Re: Main stack wont show?!

One is the way tools were handled, in 1.1 and 2.2, you could either single or double click on a tool to either place 1 or many copies of that control, which I find interesting. You can still double-click a control to place copies onto the topstack. What metacard had was the ability to click a contr...

Re: Cant open *.livecode

Just separate tabs. This has only happened to me twice that I know of, and not with the current (9.5.1 9.0.5) builds. And of course no repeatable sequence of events, so I can't point a finger of blame in a particular direction.
