[Solved] Standalone building question

What determines whether a stack can be turned into a (functioning) standalone or not? For instance, (and yes, I know the following are set up for use as plug ins, not standalones), the McDictionary can be saved as a standalone, and it is functional as a standalone dictionary. The TinyDictionary can ...

Re: No Count with DateTime<='2017-7-22 23:59' and DateTime>=

Heh, looks like we're both sorry, I had gone to do further research and it looks like I failed to recognize you were using the sql datetime, not the Lc dateTime :oops: so I did completely misunderstand the situation :( Glad you sorted it out though, and that you posted a fuller explanation of your f...

Re: No Count with DateTime<='2017-7-22 23:59' and DateTime>=

If I had to guess, I would say that it was because dateTime is a sorting function, not one that could be used for testing as your trying to use it? From the dictionary - Summary Used with the sort and sort container commands to sort by date and/or time. --------------- Description ... Use the dateTi...

I second that thought Craig, but I just KNOW you weren't thinking of heaping more work on that poor gal, were you? :lol:

Re: Locking a Card for a specific time slot & Reminding the

First, I'd agree with Klaus, your english is very good, probably better than mine :) So what I'm looking for is: 1) A reminder that pops up on the screen of the user just like an alarm clock, maybe additionally in the status bar. 2) Locking the card outside this specific time slot - and in those 2 h...

Re: Lock Moves does not work

Heya Bernd ! I do want to point out that I never said it did " nothing ", just that it does not appear to operate as the dictionary says it * should *. On all of the tests I ran, it did indeed do something, just not what you might expect after reading the dictionary entry for it, and that dictionary...

Re: Lock Moves does not work

Heya -hh :) Thank you for the very helpful posting you linked to, I have read it, and look forward to using it to refine what I know to work currently, but for the question at hand would you know the answer? Just to summarize - - lockMoves, lock moves, and the unlock version of each doesn't seem to ...

Re: I need help with my little Game

I think there are a few ways that readily come to mind for changing multiple colors in a quick seeming way. In the dictionary, check the entry "lockScreen". In essence, this puts the screen in a "hold" mode, while your code, probably in a loop, would change all the colors. Then you simply unlock the...

Re: Lock Moves does not work

Heya Bernd ! To see what I mean about lock moves, try that code either without the 'lock moves' or without the 'without waiting'. If you drop 'lock/unlock moves', you'll see absolutely no difference in the behavior, because "without waiting" is actually doing the work. If you use lockMoves, lock mov...

Re: Lock Moves does not work

Yah yah, I know, reviving an older thread again :lol: However, while the pointed out without waiting method *does* work, I am curious as to why 'lockMoves' does not appear to work as listed in the dictionary, tested in Lc vers. 6.5 to 9.x dp. In testing it, I have some 5 "bubbles" that I would like ...

Re: Textured Backdrops

Thank you both for that :) @Klaus - Thanks, I actually did learn about that and made a few demos allowing the backdrop to be changed either by image stored on another card, or from files in (you'd be so proud) "Special Folder Paths" you've mentioned to me on numerous occasions :mrgreen: I actually m...
