Default handler list

I can't seem to get this working.

How do I add custom handlers to the handler list? Or builtin handlers for that matter?

Updating a widget in use

So I have a widget I created that I am currently using in several stacks. How do I test and install changes to a widget without messing up my stacks? Let me give an example... I have a widget where I needed to add "pass onMouseMove" in the script in order to make it move (obviously). So my procedure...

Re: com.livecode.widget.ColorPicker

I was mostly just trying to make the example work, though a color picker would be a great widget

so for a popup widget... do i need to program the widget separately to return the value to the parent? I'm ssuming I can't just use any widget since there needs to be some way to get a specific value...

Re: Default Script

the confusion for me really started because I was remembering the default script that used to get populated for certain widgets, and all of the built-in widgets still have the defaultscript.livecodescript file with them. Didn't realize at that time that they were no longer being populated on purpose...

Re: Built-in properties

From the widgets course: You can also link to other standard Livecode properties beyond the basic, built in set. (misc example info) To access it we have to specify that the widget has the property, but we do not have to define the property itself . If the way to use them is to define them, then A. ...

Re: Built-in properties

I seem to be going in circles, here's the point I'm making. We have a list of built-in properties that we can activate in a widget. I'm using textAlign as an example. As I see it, there are 4 possiblities: 1. Setting a built-in property in a widget just works, and can be utilized with statements lik...

Re: Built-in properties

Let me try this from another direction. I've been playing with textAlign and textStyle. If I enable the textStyle property and set the bold and/or italic, it appears that "my font" becomes bold or italicized. None of the other textStyle properties seem to do anything. If I enable textAlign, it does ...

Built-in properties

So I'm looking over the list of built-in properties that can be accessed, but I cannot find any documentation as to how to use them. Is there a way to call textFont and/or textSize other than through "my font"? Say I just wanted to get the size, how would I get it? Also I'm looking at these properti...
