Re: Do as Applescript Execution Error when looping Objects

Dear All, I have discovered my error : being uncertain of how the "do" command works I simplified my Applescript by deleting anything complicated and as I said above it worked. When I added the repeat loop I failed to restore the following two lines use AppleScript version "2.4" -- Yosemite (10.10) ...

Re: Do as Applescript Execution Error when looping Objects

Hi Sparkout, Thanks for your reply. I am uncertain which lines of the Applescript code you are referring to. The code is similar to Livecode but is more obscure. The "set" statements are used in the same way as Livecode uses "put" but in the case of the "tMessageList" the variable is populated with ...

Do as Applescript Execution Error when looping Objects

Hi, I am attempting to get the text and some header information from Apple Mail. I have written a working AppleScript that I plan to use from within Livecode. However, it throws an Applescript execution error when called using the Do command. A very truncated version of the script is listed below. T...

Re: RevBrowser Now displays PDFs with Adobe Clutter

I'm cross posting with the use-livecode group email for widest coverage. Tore suggested that I still had Adobe files lurking on my computer and that I reinstall the Reader App and then use the Adobe Cleaner app to get rid of it. Below is my reply to Tore. Excellent advice Tore - many thanks. I reins...

Re: RevBrowser Now displays PDFs with Adobe Clutter

Thanks again. My code is old and predates widgets and I could see no advantage in using a widget so it uses a revBrowser. However, having said that I have just tried your code with a Browser Widget and get the same message to locate an adobe pdf reader when using LC 9.02. My Application code also do...

Re: RevBrowser Now displays PDFs with Adobe Clutter

Hi Klaus, I suppose it may be down to the OS but in the past Livecode has been pretty flexible. Its a little ironic that the reason I am still using Mac OS Sierra is because I use Adobe Lightroom and I am not certain how well it runs on High Sierra and beyond. How did you test the display of PDF, I ...

Re: RevBrowser Now displays PDFs with Adobe Clutter

Well Klaus yet again you have hit the nail on the head. I found Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and looked at the preferences of which there are dozens. I could not find anyway of switching it off so I deleted the application and allowed Hazel to clean out any associated files. The result is that my LC vers...

Re: RevBrowser Now displays PDFs with Adobe Clutter

Hi Klaus, "Do you have the Acrobat PDF Web plugin installed? This is a setting somewhere deep in the preferences of Acrobat Reader (or PRO, if installed), if I remember correctly." I have no idea but will go on a hunt. I'm on a mac so I tend to use preview or PDFPen but I bet AcrobatReader is lurkin...

Re: RevBrowser Now displays PDFs with Adobe Clutter

I have just downloaded LC 6.7.10 and found an old version of my application that uses a RevBrowser. While it runs there is a definite slow down in the display of PDF once seven or eight have been displayed. My guess is that the revBrowser is doing some form of buffering, the good news is that the Ad...

Re: RevBrowser Now displays PDFs with Adobe Clutter

Hi, I should have said that I am on Mac OS 10.12.6 Sierra. My application displays a list of PDFs that are in a selected folder. These are listed in a field and should be displayed when clicked on. The Livecode file loads into Livecode 8 and the unwanted menus do not appear. However, each successive...

RevBrowser Now displays PDFs with Adobe Clutter

Hi All, Some years ago I created an application to aid me in renaming PDF files produced by a document scanner. I believe that the last time I worked on the code base it was in Livecode 8. I need to make some minor changes so have opened the file in Livecode 9.0.2. While the application runs the dis...

Re: Creating forum/comment web pages using Livecode

Hi both, I shall probably try a two pronged approach, initially use a third party tool (either Disqus or MyBB) while seeing if a Livecode/PostGreSql DB I wrote for a LAN can be bent to the task. The db had passwords that were only stored in MD5 format which seemed to stop teenagers hacking the tool ...
