Re: Create new Local ID or Retreive 1 from Online DB ?

Well, no, why would it have to be smarter than that? The point is just that sometimes internal and external ID's aren't the same, so if you decide to use an external ID like a customer number, you often may want to consider this a field just like any other and use the internal, automatically generat...

Re: Create new Local ID or Retreive 1 from Online DB ?

Why "emulate"? That concept doesn't make sense here. Internal and external ID's are just different things with different purposes. As I said, don't make it more complex than necessary.

Re: Create new Local ID or Retreive 1 from Online DB ?

Make a distinction between an internal and en external ID. The internal ID is for the database and links records of different tables. The external ID is for you, e.g. a client number. The client number is stored in only one table in the database, while the internal ID is stored wherever applicable. ...

Re: Connect To Server At Startup

The syntax "wait 5 seconds" is blocking and during this time LiveCode will never be able to make a connection. Instead, you should use "wait 5 seconds with messages" but there is a better way to do this. local lSock = "192.168.15.189:12345" on openStack newConnection end openStack on newConnection i...

Re: using UTF-16 instead of UTF-8 between Stack and Hosted DB

Sure. If the UTF16 encoded data in the MariaDB fields are correct, there is no reason why it wouldn't display correctly in LiveCode. I don't understand why you mention data transfers separately. This may depend on your server and on the specified data transfer method, a transfer shouldn't affect the...

Re: the polygon tool

You could ask the user to click on the card, record the points and save them in a variable, and set the points of a new polygon to that variable.

Re: Copy-pasting accented text into LC

If I copy your original text from the browser and paste it into LiveCode, I get an incorrect result. However, if I type the text manually in LibreOffice and copy-paste it into LiveCode, it works fine. What is your exact set-up? (I still have to try OpenOffice on my new Mac).

Re: rest api used --http2

To force LiveCode to use http2, you'd have to change libUrl or tsNet.tsNet might have a parameter that lets you choose http2, since it includes the CURL library. Unfortunately, tsNet isn't open source. You could also write your own request along the lines if write "GET /index.html HTTP/2.0" & cr to ...

Re: Local mutiny .... (=^‥^=)

Put emtpy into xx doesn't destroy the variable. It just makes it empty. Delete variable xx should destroy the variable, but it doesn't seem to work correctly.

Re: I want to use revSpeak command on app

Hi Jim, Do you know externals? An external is a piece of compiled code that is installed next to the LiveCode engine. Using the externals property, LiveCode is told to read this compiled code into memory, making it available to all scripts in the message hierarchy. It originates from the HyperCard t...
