Re: Copying scripts to text file

Yeah, the possibilities for guessing are nearly endless.

I'm eager to hear what Mark has to say.

Re: Having trouble building an app

Different outputs suggest something changed. The task at hand is to determine whether the part that changed in the the SB settings on the stack file, or the SB code that acts on those settings. Symptomatically, it superficially appears the change is in the SB itself. But we can't be completely certa...

Re: Dash docset?

LC Ltd maintains the docs in markdown for GitHub compatibility.

If GitHub has an option to author natively in DASH perhaps that could change.

In the meantime, the utility to automate conversion to DASH seems a good solution.

Re: Copying scripts to text file

Yeah, dumping scripts isn't the hard part. I used to have a habit of writing a script dumper with each new xTalk I picked up. But I stopped doing that when I noticed I never actually did any meaningful work with the output. More recently I've identified a set it needs related to version comparison, ...

Re: App Store review guideline 2-1

Guideline 2-1 - Performance - App Completeness We were unable to review your app as it crashed on launch. Does anybody know what to do or does App Store just don't want LiveCode? Not crashing sounds like a good starting point. Which iOS devices and OS versions have you tested on? Can you reproduce ...

From a web search:

"To suggest a page break, add <P style="page-break-before: always"> before the beginning of a new printed page."
Is that for LiveCode or browsers?

Re: LiveCode Connections with Websockets

Super cool of you to do that, and it'll be an exciting contribution for many. Thank you.

I'm still wondering why service providers limit APIs to websockets, consuming more resources than they need to when used by any non-browser app...

Re: Does RevPrintText Support A Page Break?

LC's flexibility is admirable, where it's needed. Here, everything revPrintText does is just fine, except that the OP also needs a page break method. Maybe we can come up with an enhancement to the LC printing library for this? It's all script, so doable by anyone where with sufficient interest and ...

Re: Extra 'title bar' in new stack

This has been discussed at length, but not to my satisfaction, FWIW. What you're seeing isn't a title bar per se, but a tab. You'll see this in any window the OS believes is a "document", which in LiveCode means only toplevel stacks. But toplevel stacks are used for all sorts of things, only sometim...
