Re: LiveCode 1.6.1 docset now available.

Ah, I can’t help you there as I do not have an android device. On the Mac and iOS you go to the prefs or settings and check out the docset/downloads tab. There is a “user contributions” section where the Livecode docset resides. You can also just double click on a docset in finder and it will load i...

LiveCode 1.6.1 docset now available.

The "LiveCode 1.6.1" documentation set for Dash and Dash compatible is now available via the normal update mechanism for user contributed docsets.

This version was compiled from the 9.01rc2 release of Livecode and includes all the guides for the widgets.

Re: Dash docset creator for LiveCode

With the release of 9.01 the "Guides" section of the dictionary now includes guide for the widgets. These guides come from documentation within the widget folder (within the Extensions folder of the LC package.) I have now added the code to the "Make Docset" stack on LiveCodeShare to generate the ap...

Re: Non sorted tree view display

I now realise that the issue I was trying to solve is an inherent part of arrays as implemented in LC. It appears that for any key in an array, if another dimension is added to that key, the value of that key becomes an array thus losing whatever non array value it had. Thus when you add a sub level...

Re: Non sorted tree view display

Thanks for that Bernd. I will go through the session.
The thought of having the tree display the array elements and not the keys has got me thinking.
But first I need to understand the current widget more.

Re: Non sorted tree view display

I am beginning to think the slide was a fudge. Perhaps I need to go through the presentation to see if there is a clue.

Non sorted tree view display

I have been looking at the Tree-View widget as a possible way of displaying a table of contents. Initially I couldn't see how this was possible as whenever I played around with the widget and entered a sub element into the tree, the data of the parent node would disappear. I then realised that the w...

Only mention of Fraser and Canada was an appearance at a user group years ago.

I believe Canada was mentioned in a post on the use-livecode list.

Re: PDF search

As Richard said, ePub is a renamed zip archive. The archive consists of xml, html, xhtml files with a few others depending on the nature of the book. There are no pages as such as the content needs to flow to fit the screen size of the reader. So searching an epub requires you to unzip the package a...

Re: How to edit Row Behavior of a Data Grid in LC 9.0.0

In LC9 it is labelled “edit script” and sits above the “edit template...” button. If you open the dictionary in LC and then click on the GUIDE tab, you will see a list of guides. The “Livecode Data Grid” can be found in the intermediate section. It has been rewritten for LC 8/9 and so has the new Pr...

Just a question.
Why can’t something like ...

if the mode of stack "revStandaloneProgress" > 0 then
exit closeStack

Be built into the standalone builder scripts?

Re: Cannot enter data in field

Hmm...
Then i go to tools and click on 'Pointer Tool Select and edit objects' and immediately after i click on 'Browser Tool Your stack is running and can be interacted with'.
Now i can enter data in the field.
You are right.
Missed this toggle.
OK then something seems amiss.

Re: Cannot enter data in field

Your description sounds as if you are in the IDE. This is how the IDE works. You can only interact with your stack’s objects in the way they are meant to be interacted with when you have chosen the “Browser” tool. (The arrow tool without the little plus sign.) When editing your stack, you are using ...

Re: cannot see custom properties after close/reopen

Hi Klaus,
He mentioned properties plural so i thought he may have them bundled as a set.
My reading of his post was that using ‘answer’ from the message box gave him nothing, which implied to me it did not work.
