Re: First Open Source Version of LiveCode

Thanks for your Super Quick reply.

I'm on a PowerMac G5 running OS 10.4.11.

I'm not sure how to pass this on to the RunRev folks? - other than through this Forum.

LC 6.0 Omission or Bug

Noticed in LC version 6.0 there are no Icons for the Application or it's generated Stacks - only the Application and Stack title shows.

Is this intentional or a bug :?:

Re: Help Us Take LiveCode Open Source

I'm delighted to see this development in LiveCode's evolution. I am strictly a hobbyist (and HyperCarrd refugee) and was being forced out of utilizing LiveCode by recent RunRev pricing strategies.I also see this as a great move to encourage the LiveCode users to contribute the way the old enthusiast...

Re: LiveCode Stack to iPad ???

Thank You Very Much for the information. I'm not surprised that I'll need to go to Mac OS X.5 (or later) to utilize IOS - but you've pretty much confirmed that for me. Of course OS 10.4 is obsolete but I'm a die-hard lover of HyperCard and am staying with OS 10.4 as long as I can. I am surprised tha...

LiveCode Stack to iPad ???

I need advice and information- I have a HyperCard Stack I've converted to LiveCode (using a prior version of Revolution). Now. I'd like to run my LiveCode Stack on my iPod 2. I have no desire to make my program available to the public as an iPad App - it is only for my personal use. I have an iMac G...

Re: Tutorial Books

The book you will probably receive is "Revolution User Guide Version 3", published in 2008. It is not by Dan Shafer but is an updated User Guide. It is a different and better organized IMO approach (by the Revolution staff?) to introducing Revolution and covers areas Dand Shafer's earlier book didn'...

Re: Merging Stacks?

Klaus, My spelling error was the problem!! - I must have taken an idiot pill today!!! I'm sure your previous suggestion (resetting the defaulSstack) corrected the problem with my mouseUp getting lost. And of course, it is very logical and should have been obvious to me - now that I know the answer o...

Re: Merging Stacks?

Hi Ralph, hm, nothing offending at first glance... What error do you get? What is the script in your modal dialog stack? Maybe your script "loses" the connection to its stack? Try to add this line after "modal..." ... modal stack "AssessPnlty" set the defaultstack to "name of the stack that OWNS yo...

Re: Merging Stacks?

Hi Ralph, looks like the script cannot find the desired button, but will, if you add a long descriptor! Note that, when the script executes, the current card might not contain the button "Quarter"! ... put the icon of btn "Quarter" OF CD "Name of Card with the button on it" OF STACK "Name of stack ...
