Re: Windows: Constant access to ICC profiles?

Hi Mark,

it does seem to do it only for certain stacks (not empty ones) but then moving the mouse over it is enough. The stream is continouus. Many many requests every second.

Windows: Constant access to ICC profiles?

Hi,

it appears that the engine constantly accesses the ICC Profiles on Win, instead of doing it once and then caching the result. Is this intended behaviour? I have no idea how much this affects performance, however this seems a little unreasonable to me.

Attaching screenshot of the monitoring.

libDate

Hi, some of you may know it already. I have put the stack script on gitHub now: https://github.com/derbrill/libdate contributions are welcome! Especially I am looking for the definitions of the dateformats, system weekdaynames and system monthnames for different languages. All the best, Malte https:...

Re: Does AE support LiveCode 7 and 8?

Hi,

that one should have been fixed in the most recent version already (quite a while ago). I surely need to download from RRs site to see if they have that one up.

All the best,

Re: Does AE support LiveCode 7 and 8?

I just checked with LC 7 and did not see any obvious Problems. If you find any, please report them here.

Re: Does AE support LiveCode 7 and 8?

It certainly should. It is a stack after all. Make sure that you run the latest version though.

Best,

Re: Animation engine: Memory leak

Hi,

I doubt memory is leaking. What it looks like is that the pendingMessages queue up quite a bit. Try sending in more milliseconds and increasing the step.

Hope that helps,

Malte

Re: Mimic enabled property?

@trevordevore: Ah - I wondered if that's what you meant - do mouse events really pass through disabled controls in LC?!? I never realised that... Talk about wrong from any reasonable point of view - another anomaly report methinks! Anomaly, maybe, but one I know for sure I have exploited more than ...

Re: Time formats

While I have stuff like this in libDate, I completely agree that this would be very useful. The engine implementation will always be faster than any scripted version. It would also be useful if convert would not choke on dates < 1/1/1970 and > 2036 I think it was...

Re: Retaining Backwards Compatibility in a Changing World

My 2 cents on this. Whatever the change to behaviour may be, the most important thing is that it is clearly documented in the changelog. Then it is up to the developer to decide to take the risk of switching to the more recent engine and make the required changes, or stick a little longer with the o...

Hi Mark, first of all: I really really appreciate that you are looking into the performance issues I see... what this test tries to mimic is a) a live search on a datagrid (search while you type style of thing), b) the building of data for an rTree, where data is fetched from a DB, temporariely writ...
