Metronome and Button clicks

Hi Everyone I have a metronome type setup, where the user sets the speed of the audio click sound (an audio file). This works fine when running by itself. The user then clicks on a button to match the speed of the audio sound click. When this happens (or any button click) there is a delay in the aud...

Re: Return in a text field

Thank you all for your replies Jean-Marc - Thanks for your suggestion. This is one version that I tried. The result was the cursor placed on the second line. This was I think because the return was included. I then tried to backspace to remove this. I didn’t have much joy with this. Craig - Yes, my ...

Return in a text field

Hi All I am wanting to allow the user enter 10 lines of text only: in a text field. After 10 words, I want the return input to activate an action, but not move the cursor to the next line. In essence I want a field that only has 10 lines. I have tried a number of approaches. I am using "on returninf...

Re: Saving data in a substack

After I posted the previous post, I continued to try to understand what was going on. It then occurred to me that the difference between the laptop computer and desktop computer was that the folder with the files on the laptop was on the desktop. On the desktop computer, the files were in a folder i...

Re: Saving data in a substack

Thank you Andy for your informative reply. I had a play with your suggestion to get a better understanding of where things are kept. However, it appears as though this wasn’t the problem. I was convinced that saving a data stack is easy but couldn’t get it to work in my standalone. While playing wit...

Saving data in a substack

Dear Forum I have searched this topic for ages and tried many suggestions. I understand this should not be a difficult problem, but I am having no luck at getting my data sub-stack to save. I am building on a Mac, but will also need to save for Windows later. This is my trimmed down version: I have ...

Re: Not working as expected?

Thank you -hh for your post. I gather from what you say, that HTML5 is not suited to mobile devices - yet. Before I start, I would like to give my appreciation to the LiveCode team for the amazing job they have done over many years. It is an great product. My questions relate to HTML5. I have an Ind...

Re: External file path name - Windows

Thanks Simon. I used your script to see what was going on under the hood. The path was ok, just the url syntax wasn't launching the web browser (as I was expecting, because it was fine on a Mac). However the 'launch document' syntax did the trick. Brilliant. Hi Jacque, thanks for your script. Seeing...

Re: External file path name - Windows

Hi Simon

Yes. It is in a folder 'Care'. The Livecode stack will be in same level as the 'Care' folder.

The Mac format to refer to and open the 'welcome.html' file works fine. It's just that the syntax for Windows users is eluding me :-)

cheers

Re: External file path name - Windows

Thanks for the suggestion Simon

I've played with that approach, but I want the web page to launch with the one click, as the person using the program won't know that they are looking for the welcome.html file.

cheers

External file path name - Windows

Hi Everyone Probably a simple question, but I have been looking for a few days for a solution. I think I have tried every combination of variations to get this to work, but no success yet! I want to launch an external .html file (on a memory stick) from a stack (on the same memory stick). The follow...

Re: The selectedtext between fields

Thanks Craig Interestingly, I tried removing the 'of me'; i.e. put the selection into field "myChoice" and it didn't work. So I have kept; put the selection of me into field "myChoice" I think that is where I originally started using the selectedtext when "put the selection" didn't do as I wanted. G...

Re: The selectedtext between fields

Craig, thanks for your explanation and prompt for me to explore it again. I'm not sure what you had in mind, but this worked; on mouseup put the selection of me into field "myChoice" end mouseup That's all it took. So 'the selectedtext' was too specific and captured only the empty selection. Great. ...
