Read mail server

I haven't done socket stuff before, so I'm wondering if there are any example stacks around that I could learn from. I'd like to poll a mail server to get a list of recent unread emails, specifically so I can make my own alert if I get something from a specific mail account. (I actually did somethin...

Re: Can I run OS/Community builds on my own device?

I haven't check in a more recent Community Edition version. Hah! That would be a definitive answer – thanks! I downloaded LC Community 9.0.2 – and it looks like it IS possible to build for iOS with Community, although my understanding is that Apple won't allow the result to be on the App Store. I w...

Re: Can I run OS/Community builds on my own device?

But is it possible to test an LC app made with the Community build in one's own iPhone?

Re: Can I run OS/Community builds on my own device?

For iOS, Apple's limit on downloads conflicts with the terms of LC Community Edition's GPL license. Sorry Richard, could you expand on that? I'm aware of the general problem of Community builds being open source and the App Store requiring everything to be closed source. What's the download limit i...

Re: Can I run OS/Community builds on my own device?

I've not heard of Community Plus – I'll see if that's viable and a possibility for my face-to-face 'day job' teaching. But I'm also looking at writing a series of tutorials for publication in a tech mag, and that's the more pressing concern right now. I'm not trying to find a way for people to dodge...

Can I run OS/Community builds on my own device?

I have a LiveCode business license so I can (when I get my poor aching head around it) build apps for mobile devices in the closed-source format that Apple requires. But I'm considering teaching the basics of creating apps (both to my students directly and as a fresh series of how-to magazine articl...

Re: Common Android Deployment issues

Hi Keith I want to apologize if it was my answer that made you "feel being trolled". I don't think he was referring to your answer Simon. Absolutely right Bogs! :) Simon, it was purely the frustrating experience of having paths consistently lead me to dead ends that felt like trolling, not your inp...

Re: Common Android Deployment issues

It helped very much, thanks. The problem turned out to be what someone else in one of those threads experienced: an incomplete removal of a newer Java install in /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines. LiveCode's automatic finding of the JDK path had picked up the newer one. Once I deleted that and re-pi...

Re: Common Android Deployment issues

THANK YOU Klaus! :!: That page did help me get everything set up. I am deeply grateful. Right, time for me to try Android! :D EDIT: I spoke too soon: "There was an error while saving the standalone application could not compile service support class" http://thatkeith.com/temporary/LiveCode-Android-p...

Re: Common Android Deployment issues

Now I feel like I'm being trolled. In the https://livecode.com/resources/support/ page, down in the Setup section, there are four items: Download LiveCode, Activating LiveCode, iOS Setup, and Android Setup. Each has its own button designed, I presume, to take the user to the appropriate part of the ...

Re: Common Android Deployment issues

I'm new to Android development but not new to LiveCode. I am absolutely stumped (and rather annoyed) by how difficult it is to set up the Android SDK and get LiveCode to recognise it. Basically, I have utterly failed to do it. I have a support contract so I can get help, which I will do if I must – ...

Good job, Keith! (But fix the coding errors :P ) Just kidding! :D :shock: Don't DO that to me! :lol: :lol: Seriously though, it's a perennially challenging thing for a commissioning editor: finding someone who's an expert in a topic AND who can communicate well.

Re: Button Error

I purchased the "You Can Make An App" magazine in 2014 from a local computer store in St. Louis. Could be this MacFormat Magazine? https://www.amazon.com/Macformat-Make-Everything-Sketch-Store/dp/3293546439 I have a copy somewhere, but as I wrote those particular tutorials I also have the original ...

Hi Keith,

a tableField is "just" a tab delimited text.

Thanks Bernd, this is a very cool revelation. Time for me to experiment!

Re: Table keywords missing from Dictionary?

Huh. Okay, it’s clear that I need to rethink what I thunk about tables! The reason I thought cellEdit and cellFormat would be valid words in the LCC language is because that’s what’s in the tooltips for certain checkboxes in the table inspector. Normally the words in those tooltips show the relevant...
