Re: PROJECT: RevOnline triage

One suggestion is to have a standard platform test/reporting tool in LC. So that when you have a problem you can report things like: platform, build used, mobile device etc without having to work it out before emailing/posting. You could simply run the system test tool and let it report the basic st...

Re: Relative file path

It is a curious thing but I thought iterative (agile) design meant that each test/build things got better. So I'd imagine 6.7 was everything 6.6 plus a bit more. But I read the forum 'suggest' that e.g. 6.x commercial isn't 6.x community or that 7 [potentially/ I don't know] could be stable 6.5 'for...

Re: set pixelscaling, using screenrect with a scroller

thanks for the reply - it would take too much time to recreate it all again. But it consisted of a scroller rect/contentrec that was calculating narrower than the width of the screen. At the time I hadn't realised that screenrect wasn't the complete screen. So I was struggling with an incorrect calc...

Re: I Found a way to do Text to Speech in Android.

lodijoe,

Is there a limit to the size of the text file you can pass this way?

Re: I Found a way to do Text to Speech in Android.

Works really well.

I was thinking that this approach may work with https://foauth.org/ so you can access a whole range of services with a few lines of code.

Re: Custom Mobile Scroller

Interestingly I was testing using:
set the top of group "entry" to -vOffset
set the left of group "entry" to -hOffset

It 'feels' horribly wrong when you combine the two.

For left/right with Twitter on Android it is entirely different to the up/down motion. Perhaps I need left/right 'traction'.

Re: Auto Close When Updating

Also if you download an LC sample it will run from the oldest/original version of Livecode installed on Windows 7. So if you have the latest open it will open another window with an older version of LC.

Screenrect versus mobile phone pixel size

When I test my Sony Xperia it says the screenrect is: 360 width x 592 height But the specs say 720 x 1280 pixels. 319 ppi. The screenrect doesn't include the status bar. What is the relationship? How is the screenrect value calculated for my phone? What is the rect of the status bar? OK, my guess: I...

set pixelscaling, using screenrect with a scroller

I was trying to size my scrolling Android app to fit portrait/landscape using a combination of pixelscaling/setting the scrolling group width. Using the screenrect to calculate. But so far without success. If I use set the pixelscale [e.g.] to 1.8 I've noticed that I get a 'ghost' remnant of the gro...

Re: About to wave my white flag. Perhaps the only way is to

Another way is to put together a spec for a very simplified version of your app - then use a site like peopleperhour.com to pay someone to code it in Livecode. Then use that to learn from and expand upon the idea. A pro may be able to put it together in a day if your idea is fairly simple and you ma...

Re: Mobile-Look

That xamarin does look good for $25/m. I wish Livecode could match it feature for feature - Livecode is so much easier for 'normal' people to understand. I also think Livecode should look at the subscription or even a '1, 2, 3 month-commercial use' model - as 1-off payments tend to put people off pa...
