Re: Tablet goes to sleep, half of app disappears

Hi Where did this get to? I suspect that I'm seeing the same thing. LiveCode 7.1; deployed to an Android 5.1 smartphone for testing. The app that I'm testing currently does not implement any scaling / fullscreen commands. Upon re-activating the app, using the recent apps button, after the phone has ...

Re: Wait command weirdness

Hi Bernd

Windows 7

On your suggestion I downloaded a more up-to-date version of Livecode. I'm now on 7.1.0, and the quirk of needing to enter the Unlock Screen command twice has disappeared.

Thanks AGAIN

Kim

Re: Wait command weirdness

Hi BernD Hopefully - here it is. This is the first time I've tried to upload a file to the forum - please let me know if it doesn't work. This code is now doing what I expected, but only after I inserted an "extra" unlock screen command (after reading the earlier comments in this post). I'm just cur...

Re: Wait command weirdness

Dear all Did this ever reach any form of resolution? I think that I'm experiencing the same with an animation that I've created. On UpdateGraphicX - Calculate the new location of GraphicX - Lock Screen - Change the points of GraphicX - Unlock Screen On AnimationIsGo - Repeat while LetsGo is True -- ...

Re: open a project for editing, without executing PreOpenSta

Sorry - I just worked out what you meant.

"Messages" icon, not "Message Box" icon.

As you said. I've clicked on the Messages icon and that has let me edit the project without PreOpenStack running.

THANKS - very useful to know.

Re: open a project for editing, without executing PreOpenSta

Thanks, but is there another step? I click the Message Box icon, and the Message Box appears. But when I load my .Livecode file, I still get the same result. Livecode goes into "Not Responding" mode without allowing me to do anything. I'm pretty sure that I've messed up the PreOpenStack by putting a...

open a project for editing, without executing PreOpenStack

I think that I just edited my PreOpenStack to include a perpetual loop; then saved and exited. Now when I try to open my .Livecode file, livecode just hangs.

Damn.

Is there a way to have Livecode open a project for editing, without executing PreOpenStack?

Thanks in advance

Re: Indirect reference to a group on another card

Hmmm. I've discovered that I was making things far more complicated than they needed to be. The following works just as well - Copy group WhatAnimalsToUse[X]["AnimalName"] of card "AnimalStore" to card "HomeScreen" No need to use DO, VALUE and QUOTE at all. Klaus - What I had was a set of groups eac...

Re: Indirect reference to a group on another card

Thanks Klaus It turned out that I had been looking at this problem for too long yesterday - and the one object that I had chosen to use as my test case was a graphic and not a group. Doh! Once I had identified and fixed this mistake, It didn't take me long to get the following to work - Do "Clone gr...

Indirect reference to a group on another card

Sorry - but I'm doing my head in trying to work out how to make an indirect reference to a group on another card. What I have is a card that stores a set of groups that I MIGHT want to use, and an array that identifies which of those groups I actually want to use this time. Card "AnimalStore" // Con...

Re: Unexpected result with Set Points & Set Rectangle

Brilliant. I put a single point, separated by two CRs, at each of the outer corners of my point-based graphic canvas - and now it works exactly as I had hoped.

A big thanks for your input. I wish that I'd asked you two days ago!

Re: Unexpected result with Set Points & Set Rectangle

Hi Bernd Thanks for the info. I was (slowly) getting there as a result of my own experimentation. If I understand what you are saying: 1) The boundaries of a point-based graphic are the SMALLEST rectangle that can accommodate its component points; and 2) The relative location of the component points...

Unexpected result with Set Points & Set Rectangle

Hi I'm getting a result that I don't expect when setting the points of a graphic and setting the rectangle of the same graphic. My stack is as follows - Stack Card1 On PreOpenCard Set the rectangle of graphic "ABC" to 0,0,200,200 Put Empty into field "DisplayPoints" End PreOpenCard Graphic "ABC" // ...

Re: Message path - why can code on a stack see down?

Thanks Craig

Ahhh

I can see now that I got a bit lucky (by having the object that I was referencing on the 1st card)

You are right - I will need to re-work my code to avoid needing to rely on luck.
