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

Livecode 8 is supposed to be the same as 7 with the extra widget stuff. I just downloaded 8DP4 and tried to load a stack I wrote in 7. It looks like the interface is there but the stack script isn't loaded into memory or something. The stack script is there if I open it, but none of the handlers sho...

Re: LiveCode 2-year Indy offer - mistimed?

It worked for me. I'm in that transition zone between beginner and semi-pro so I went ahead and made the investment. I probably would have waited longer otherwise.

Re: Platyvue Project

It looks like it could evolve into an app for tracing the evolution of any kind of sequential process – for example, creating an eLearning course or planning an intentional community. An interesting interactive text<->diagram tool called Proquis AllClear Flowcharter offers a highly intuitive system...

Re: variable content is wrong

Figured it out. When I answered all three variables in one string I could see that pSeed had a trailing return. Apparently that didn't bother Livecode when I asked if pSeed was 6 or "6" but it did silently break when I tried to use pSeed to lookup an array. This is not the first time I've spent more...

Re: variable content is wrong

This works too. I get the keys I'd expect.

Code: Select all

   repeat with tCount = 1 to 100 step 1
      put the keys of sMainShort[pDoc][tCount] into tTesting[tCount]
   end repeat

variable content is wrong [SOLVED, feature request?]

So I've got a function where I passed in some parameters. I'm trying to put the contents of an array into a temp variable using three of the parameters to specify the array position. It seems like two of the three variables work, but one of them doesn't. function resourceRollup pDoc,pSeed,pDirection...

Re: mouseMove before mouseDown [FIXED, hilite and/or drag ob

sturgis, thanks so much! I'm not sure how long it would have taken me to think of combining a wait and grab, but that set me on the right path and now it works correctly :) This is the final script. It hilites/unhilites and drags properly! on mousedown if the cHilited of me is empty then set the cHi...

mouseMove before mouseDown

I posted this in the open forum but didn't get any traction. I've got a text field that represents an object. I want to either click on it, hiliting it, or drag it, repositioning it. However, I keep getting mouseMove messages before mouseDown, regardless of the fact that the mouse isn't moving. This...

I've got a text field that represents an object. I want to either click on it, hiliting it, or drag it, repositioning it. However, I keep getting mouseMove messages before mouseDown, regardless of the fact that the mouse isn't moving. This is a script that sort of works. It's got a couple problems. ...

Platyvue Project

I started learning livecode so that I could build a prototype of an idea I have for documenting open source hardware projects. It's complicated enough that it requires a dedicated application. I've shown the idea to other people and they've liked it, but they don't work in livecode. So I'd like to s...

rTree documentation

rTree is poorly documented so I'm going to start collecting information that I need to understand and work with rTree that I had to search for. I want to send a message to my main application's engine when the user expands a node, so I used the nodeExpanded handler in the rTree object's script. But ...

Re: getting started with rTree

This fixed the problem for me. Open the mainstack that you want to use rTree in, then also open the rTree engine file. Drag the rTree object onto a card, which makes a copy of it. Then open the property inspector for the rTree engine and under "basic properties" use the pulldown to select your mains...
