native input rect rendering margin?

When creating an android native input control with mobileControlCreate, it doesn't seem to quite match a graphic rectangle created with the same rect. If you color the graphic you can see more clearly that the native input control is smaller, both width and height. I tinkered around with a few diffe...

Re: introspection: current handler name?

Excellent. Glad I can help with productivity reduction! What makes you think that my not working reduces productivity? Craig Hm. It's (the inverse of) an assumption, one of three possibles: 1) you working increases productivity 2) you working makes no difference whatsoever in productivity 3) you wo...

Re: introspection: current handler name?

My post is a good case in point, I was trying to encourage you to go right on trying, just don't sweat it if it doesn't come across as you intended, eventually it will (if you hang in there long enough), but I think that was lost in the translation :wink: Yep, got that; my response was itself a goo...

Re: introspection: current handler name?

I think I begin to see, dimly... The thing that might throw others -- you in this case but probably most others also -- is that there is no higher-level or overall-task-oriented goal here (and quite often in other questions from me). I was just curious whether that level of self-awareness, so to spe...

Re: introspection: current handler name?

Thank You! yes, that executionContext is exactly the kind of thing I was thinking of! Now for a side track: I think I know what you are asking, though I bet that rethinking your ideas may be in order. I'm curious what you mean here; I'm trying to get better at communicating on this board, as I seem ...

introspection: current handler name?

Is something like this possible? on foo answer the handlerName -- or whatever the keyword is, it it exists end foo on bar answer the handlerName end bar on baz foo bar end baz so calling baz would produce two consecutive message dialogs, one saying "foo" and the other saying "bar". Fooled around a l...

Re: menu checkmark on linux

summary for my notes: "!c" text preceding a menu item will cause that item to display a checkmark if the menu is pulldown or popup. "!c" will be treated as ordinary menu item text in option menus and comboBox menus. when tutorial(s) just say menu, probably referring to "menu bar", which is implement...

Re: menu checkmark on linux

I think in general "menu" refers to the menu bar (which uses pulldown menu buttons exclusively.) Other menu button types are used in the stack content and are usually referred to by the full descriptive name. I can see how this could be confusing to a new user and I agree more clarification in the ...

Re: menu checkmark on linux

Guys... Perhaps a bit of clarification is needed here: I'm not actually advocating for this to be supported , I just want to be sure it isn't accidental (i.e. a bug) before finishing off my notes, saving the sample code illustrating the things I've learned from this that were not clear in the lesson...

Re: menu checkmark on linux

Howdy, bogs! Nope, this is a separate issue, see below...(but that thread does have some nifty code I intend to appropriate) FourthWorld, I have (part of) an answer now. I observed while putting together a sample stack that not all menu buttons appear to support the checkmark. The option menu is the...

menu checkmark on linux

Docs/tutorial indicate a menu item can be checked by prefacing menu text with "!c" text. Placing "!c" before menu items just gives me, well, "!c" before menu items. No checkmark. see here for overview on what should happen: http://lessons.livecode.com/m/2592/l/126536-placing-a-check-next-to-a-menu-i...

Re: dev box sufficient?

Thanks, Klaus! That's good to know; also good to have another indication that Macs apparently are quite long-lasting in their usefulness.

dev box sufficient?

Howdy, I'm interested in possibly doing iOS dev at some point; I gather that releasing standalones for iOS is not feasible unless I have an actual Mac of some sort, so I'm looking at this as a first foray into the Mac world: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07K2M9FLB/?coliid=IL05E6PHOLAS7&colid=1Y2K9NIX...

Re: intermittent native field widget visiblity

Additional info: Have confirmed that it is it intermittent corrupt-apk creation, not intermittent performance of a given apk. I created 25 standalones in a row, no changes to source or settings, just hitting File > Save as standalone application over and over and over... The file sizes vary. I will ...
