Re: how can I load a website url into an image control

I'm sure Hermann put up a scrolling browser thumbnailer stack somewhere, didn't he?

Re: Merge & Storing input validation logic as a custom property

Can I just say how happy I am to see the discussion in this thread and it is both informative and refreshing. I love the philosophy of validation of input before it is acceptable, rather than leaving it to the machine to decide whether it will eat or choke on what it has been fed. Use of sliders to ...

Re: Windows 10 64 bit version?

Well, I did report the post too, so it has been admin actioned. For the record it was some random waffle about "what version of winrar are you using" and "shell out to 32 bit" garbage.
But indeed, it would be useful to hear the feedback. Thanks Richard

Re: Windows 10 64 bit version?

That's great to know Richard, but I think you are responding to a necromancer probably attempting a spam placeholder.
Assume that I am interested in any answers you might glean, however.

Re: Example of dragging and dropping objects between groups

I don't know whether there's a time limit. If the post is not the last one in the thread any more, it can't be deleted (except by a forum admin). As soon as there's a post after yours, it's only editable, and will show the edit count. (If the post is the last in the thread, I think you can edit with...

Re: Acid-Free Paper

Just wondering, I don't suppose there is a page curl effect in one of Hermann's nifty stacks, maybe farming out to ImageMagic?

Re: Dismissing answer dialogs after xxx seconds automatically

You might see if "toast" widgets are a possible option for mobile?

Re: A basic tutorial...

Looks slick and info legibility is much improved.
I have to say though, it's too hurried. I can't read fast enough AND follow your design/scripting activity, only one or the other.

Re: Batch file with a flag -- need assistance

Ok.

Try

Code: Select all

put "cmd /k" && tFile into tFile
get shell (tFile)
put it
Or add "cmd /k" as the last line of your batch file

Re: Batch file with a flag -- need assistance

Ah, wait... this isn't a bug, I don't think. You want to open the command prompt to run the bat file in the command console and remain open on screen with the batch file results showing? Rather than have the results passed back to LiveCode for display/processing? So your shell command should not jus...

Re: Batch file with a flag -- need assistance

What is the appropriate response? By which I mean, if you copy and paste *exactly* that into a command prompt, what happens?
If it works, then a dummy console title of a pair of double quotes beforehand might be the answer. If not, your whole variable and / or quote wrapping is an issue.

Re: Batch file with a flag -- need assistance

You may need to experiment with the quotes wrapping the path you provide. 1, what do you get if you answer tfile immediately before the shell command. 2, on Windows you could need a dummy pair of double quotes before the tfile path to act as an empty title for the console window (put quote & quote &...
