Re: Playing Videos in Windows 10

Have you installed the K-Lite codec pack and rebooted the PC? That is the simple fix on Windows. If the simple fix doesn't work and needs a more complicated fix then it's hard to tell without more details. Does the video play on the Windows PC in Groove or VLC or other players? If so, it's definitel...

Re: WHY?? is the forum set back to saturday 24 august?

I think different services and caches and ISPs are at least part of the answer. On my home network, I am getting nothing but the last "old" state. Today out and using my phone's mobile data service, I see the "new" version again.This means I can see those posts that were lost after the "move", on th...

Re: Questions about 'mouseEnter'

It was, in essence, a very short version of Craig's thoughts, mentioning that mouse messages are positional. A stack can have non positional messages reach the engine, eg keyDown, keyUp - which may have different results depending on whether the cursor is in an unlocked field or the stack / substack...

Re: Android wired connection

Thanks Andy, that took me down an interesting rabbit hole but isn't going to help me, I don't think. Also, it appears that Phidget API 22 has dropped support for LiveCode. I think I can get a usb library for Android from github and will be testing that this weekend. Even if successful though, the tr...

Re: UK Format Date Search- SQL

What DB engine are you using? I am not sure whether this would make a difference to the syntax and whether you could have success with this without any other adjustments, but I wonder whether "Date" is a reserved word and should not be used as a column name? That might be confusing the convert funct...

Android wired connection

Hi, I am wondering if there is any way to make a connection from an Android device using a USB OTG (on the go) cable to connect to any kind of device by physical cable, that can be sent on demand? I am not really bothered whether the connection contains meaningful data or not, but that would be an a...

Re: Importing data from Google Sheets (problem with returns in cells) [wrong attachment, now updated]

Tab separated formatting is much saner, but is still going to need adjusting to deal with returns in the data as well as returns being the record separator. In that other thread you have a link to Richard's article. In that article is a link to the current repository for the Tweedly function to pars...

Re: "shakes" and "wiggles"

Hi Richmond if field "TEKST" contains "shakes" AND field "TEKST" contains "wiggles" then... If you delve deeper you will see that what you have been asking is whether field "TEKST" contains "shakeswiggles" "&" is a concatenator "and" is a boolean operator. and "wiggles" is not a valid test either, y...

Re: IDE loses 'e' of end command

Not "thankfully" but at least these weird IDE / script editor "things" are not *just* on Windows.

Re: Slow response in script editor

Yes, it is on Windows that I know this happens. I am reluctant to say "it's a Windows thing" as it's actually "a LiveCode thing that manifests on Windows". No there aren't any messages being sent in <time> or loops. Autocomplete and such "helpers" are off. It happens whenever it happens, no recipe. ...

Re: Slow response in script editor

I have often had the script editor do random and stupid things, as well as revert edits to previous versions even after having been changed and saved, often this coincides with poor responsiveness. (We're talking 30 seconds or more between keystrokes to seeing the characters appear on screen.) Somet...

Re: Questions about 'mouseEnter'

Set the image to visible but with blendLevel of 99. Then it will receive mouse messages. On mouseEnter, set the blendLevel to 0, which will have the same effect as showing and hiding to a human, but a mouse can see it all the time.
