Is there anyone running a livecode developer group in Minneapolis? Also anyone else out there from around the area?

I'm in Minneapolis. Until now I thought I was the only one. The next-closest LiveCode developer I know of is in Wisconsin.

There aren't enough of us yet for a user group, I don't think.

Either this forum section does not get visited often or just nobody else in Minneapolis developing with it. I just started this year since we needed a replacement for Adobe Director for some software we have been developing over the last 8-9 years. The transition is going a little slower than I want but I am starting to pick it up a little better now. Really miss the dot syntax that Director offered. Also the none indexed arrays take a little getting use to.

Arrays are indexed if you don't use a secondary delimiter.

Can you provide an example?

When I create an indexed right now I have been doing this,

put someVariable into tArray[1]
put another variable into tArray[2]

Problem with this is I had to create custom functions to do simple array functions like pop, push and splice.

That's how I'd do it too. I was thinking of the split command, which creates an array from a text chunk. Without a secondary delimiter, you get numbered keys.

Just letting you know that I am a LiveCoder in Minneapolis area (Fridley). Just getting back into it after using HyperCard and SuperCard 20 years ago. I have successfully published apps on both iPhone and Android though did not do the programming. Contracted with others and then did the testing and submittals.
