Re: Unexpected behaviour

Hi, I can't see how the server can be triggered when files appear, unless in a loop. 2 possibilities: Have your program started by the OS via cron, taskplaner etc. in suitable intervals, do the job once and then terminate itself. Or: Have something as such in your stack script: constant kTime = 120 ...

Re: Is indirect addressing possible?

Hi, Can I put the text Fld1 into a variable and use that as the Field name? It doesn't seem to work put "Fld1" into temp put fld temp into fld "target" This works here (LC 6.7.10): put "myFldName" into myVar put "Hussah!" into fld (myVar) put fld (myVar) This works, too: repeat with i = 1 to 4 set t...

Re: Exporting standalone

Hi, You realise you can only build iOS apps on a Mac? Really? Oh oh. Found something other here : "Identifier" in "Standalone settings/ Android" is picky in what it accepts - "com.itis-me.myapp" results in this error, "com.itisme.myapp" works ... And if we're here anyways, make sure "Version Code" i...

Re: Exporting standalone

Hi,

Isn't it required to have Android 2.1 and/or 2.2 (API 7/ 8) installed? Not sure about it - yet I have, and it works.

Have fun!

Re: Exporting standalone

Hi,

confirming that 9.0.1 /Win 10-64 does compile for Android (haven't tested the resulting apk though).

Using the SDK Manager 24.4.1 (SDK path: D:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk) and 64bit Java 1.8_144 (JDK Path: D:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_144) here.

Hope this helps, have fun!

Re: Valid locations saving pref files

Hi, "ProgramData" is one of the "mapped folders" in newer Windows systems. They can be tricky to work with. Using another approach I accidentally came to a way to write there: set itemdel to slash put specialFolderPath(40) into myPath -- the User Folder put last item of myPath into myName -- save fo...

Re: can i use livecode on a chromebook with intel?

Hi, my tablet is a Lenovo Yoga Tab 2 830L with Android 5, and an Intel Atom CPU . Compiling for Android (without any additional actions for Intel support) I never had any problems running my LC apps on it - it behaves just like any other ARM Android devices. Sure, it's not Chrome OS. But Android at ...

Re: system date format

Hi, in my LC (6.7.10) the dictionary says (searching "date"): Comments: The format of the system date forms is set by the Date & Time control panel (on Mac OS systems), the Date control panel (on Windows systems), or the LANG environment variable (on Unix systems). This may also solve the problem of...

Re: Speedy LiveCode

Hi, This is well over twice as fast as benchmarks I made years ago, in v.6. Good news, and in RAM only, so am I noticing anything important? Twice as fast as in LC 6? Sure you don't have any quirks in your data? I tried it on my cheap (€ 50 as leasing return) dev machine (HP Compaq 6005 pro, built 2...

Re: Fonts on standalone app fuzzy, but when in the IDE they are crisp

Hi, after messing around with "start using font" for a while I now do as follows: 1. I put my .ttf's into [StandAloneFolder]/fonts. This way I have them available. For Android it's all that's needed, already. 2. For Windows, I check on "openstack" if the fontnames are "in the fontNames". If they are...

Hi Klaus,

no intention in ruining anything, sry!
Only emphasizing the sheer beauty of the subtle differences in the various SQL dialects (for mySQL, you'd lookup ADDDATE/ DATE_ADD, btw ...) 8)

Re: SQL Date

Hi,

in SQLite, try this:
SELECT DATE('now','+1 day')
or
SELECT DATETIME('now','+2 hour')

Re: SQL Date

Hi, Tired of having so many dateTime conversion utilities I recently wrote a "function to bind 'em all". The idea is to trow it a dateTime string of whatever format and have it decide itself what it is, and to convert it to dateItems at first. DateItems because it's the most easy way to calculate wi...

Re: For which operating system do you need RunRev?
