Re: "Proceed if requirements are fulfilled"

It is a little hard to answer your question because there are so many ways to do this. One option would be: 1) Within whatever handler you have that allows the user to move a match - at the end of that handler test whether all of the matches are in the right place If (/* all the matches are in the r...

Re: Advertising on Android

Hi Andy Thanks - other than sorting out the monetisation aspects, I'm basically ready to start end-user testing for my puzzle app. Please let me know how you go with the possible advertising partners. I sent emails to three possibles a few weeks ago, and got zero responses. I'm confident that the go...

Re: Advertising on Android

Thanks Neil I had a feeling that there would be a "non-technical" reason why this would not work; because technically it seemed so easy that I wondered why everyone wasn't doing it ;-) This leaves me with 3 options for my 95% complete Android app: 1) Go live without advertising, and wait for LC8 2) ...

Re: Advertising on Android

I have been told, within the past 24 hours, that: - "We no longer partner with Inneractive" - "At present, to add advertising to an Android app, the approach that works is to use Appwrapper: http://www.vserv.com/technology/appwrapper/" Personally, I'm a bit underwhelmed by the appWrapper option; alt...

Thanks. I was searching on "Clear", "Delete", "Empty" etc. Never thought of "Flush" ;-)

How to clear queued pushed button messages

I know that I've seen this somewhere before, but I can't find the words to search on which tell me about the command that clears the queue of buttons that the user has already clicked Scenario : 1) User is clicking on buttons as part of a game 2) User reaches the end point of the game, but has overs...

Re: Preventing unwanted Line Breaks in a txt file

Thanks all. With your input - I seem to have it working now. Short version: - for strings with an unencrypted length 47 char and under - the EncryptIt(myunencryptedstring) and DecryptIt(myencryptedstring) functions described earlier work fine. - but for strings with an unencrypted length 48 char and...

Re: Preventing unwanted Line Breaks in a txt file

Thanks Craig I've been experimenting some more. I couldn't reproduce your tKeyHex vs tKey result, but I did narrow things down a little. - If I encrypt a string of length 47 ("abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijklmnopqrstu"), then the resulting encrypted string is length 64, and everything is good....

Preventing unwanted Line Breaks in a txt file

I'm using a pair of Encrypt & Decrypt functions that I found here - http://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=22200 They are working fine; except that I have a problem when - I encrypt a long (approx 100 char) string - and write the encrypted version to a .txt file - and then try to use the De...

Interrupting a PUT URL or POST TO URL

I'm writing an app that communicates with an online database. At one point I'm using the following to check whether the mobile device is able to connect to the internet - put URL "http://www.google.com" into ccConnCheck if ccConnCheck is empty then...

Re: Good practice for security in Livecode

Thanks. I'd already experimented with PhP middleware, and got it working with Livecode, so that is a relatively easy option for me to follow.

Do you have any info on the 2nd part to my query; how easy is it for people to reverse-engineer an apk file to see the Livecode source?

Is there any advice on good practice for security in Livecode standalone applications? My immediate concern is providing a level of protection to an app I'm developing for Android. I'd like to appropriately minimize the risk of naughty people: - being able to view external database credentials that ...
