Re: No AppIcon on Taskbar if used windowShape {Solved}

[edit] nevermind, I commented out systemWindow and now it layers properly. _____________________________________- This sort of worked. I didn't use the windowShape part because I just want it to be a rectangle without the decorations. So there are still decorations that I'd like to get rid of, but w...

revCursors substack

If I create a new mainstack and start working with it the substack revCursors appears sooner or later and I can't get rid of it. Tried deleting it in the project browser and tried deleting it with script and checked that it's the only revCursors stack in the palettes folder http://forums.livecode.co...

enable right-click menu for widgets

Feature request: enable the right-click menu for widgets.

All the normal controls have a right-click menu with easy access to frequently used options. I can get to the widget's script by selecting it and then going to the main menu, but I shouldn't have to.

automatically include widgets in standalones

Feature request: Livecode should just include all the widgets I put in the script or stack automatically. If that's not possible it should give me a warning that something in the script/stack isn't going to be included in the standalone. Background I've found a half-dozen places where someone says t...

Re: enable mouse messages when button down

I appreciate the examples. I've also implemented something using mouseMove. The question this thread is based on is still whether or not it's possible to re-enable the mouse messages even though the mouse button is down. Livecode is based on messages. There are commands that manipulate those message...

normal OS keyboard shortcuts

Windows has standard keyboard shortcuts for moving windows around. Like (windows key + right arrow key) docks the active window to the right half of the screen. Does a Livecode stack have to be specifically told to respond to those standard shortcuts? Do they have to be each be scripted one-by-one o...

Re: enable mouse messages when button down

It looks like I can make due using mouseMove and within. I can catch mouseMove relatively easily check if the mouseLoc is within the rect of every node in a repeat. That's not nearly as clean as just getting a message from the control the mouse crosses into, but it looks like Livecode just straight ...

Re: enable mouse messages when button down

SparkOut - Thanks, but I'd like to make use of Livecode's existing engine. I COULD rewrite the logic that continuously tracks whether or not the mouse has entered a particular area...but there are already supposed to be messages for that. Klaus - I see what you mean about 'abusing' the drag messages...

Re: enable mouse messages when button down

Thanks, that's interesting. Seems like it's more confusing than useful at that point. It's not queuing the messages because it doesn't send mouseEnter, mouseLeave, mouseEnter if all of those happened while the mouse was down. But it also doesn't help. I was hoping to use the built in mouse messages ...

enable mouse messages when button down

I designed some UI interaction on the whiteboard. Now that I'm trying to code them I found that Livecode is doing the exact opposite of what I'd like. Messages like mouseEnter are suppressed when the mouse button is down. What I'd like to do is let the user click on one node, drag the mouse to anoth...

Re: standalone error pLibraryName and some numbers

Is it a bug I can work around or do I have to wait for DP5?

standalone error pLibraryName and some numbers [solved]

I made a Windows standalone from Livecode 8 DP 4 on Windows 8.1. When I tried to open the .exe I got a popup with this message: Error 91,51,1 532,51,1 while loading stack: pLibraryName It has an "okay" button but clicking that doesn't do anything. At least, I think I'm clicking it because it changes...

Re: Livecode 8 DP4 doesn't load stack script [solved]

Oh yeah, okay, the second time I opened LC8DP4 the tools palette is populated.

Oooooh, right. I think you guys said at the user group meeting that "ceiling" is a keyword and I can't use it as a handler. I replaced it with ceilingNum and everything works now.
