iOS 5 Problems

Post by SteveHanlan » Fri Sep 30, 2011 12:05 am

I'm having major problems with my apps running on iPad and iPhone running beta iOS 5.
Mostly screens going black, (with some controls showing occasionally)

iOS 5 is being released next week, and my published app will fail as soon as users update

Anyone else tries iOS 5, and any problems?

I'm running Livecode 4.6.3 with MobGuI V0.22 (4.6.4 still seems to have problems with splash screen)

cheers

Steve

4.6.4 fixed the issues you describe for me.

What are the issues with the splash screen as they may be easier to fix??

Is this an issue with LiveCode or is it related to the use of MobGui?

Thanks,
John

The splash screen reference appears to be a problem with initial orientation, not splash screen, (I took the splash screen out and still have the same problem)

This is what I see, based on various standalone settings ...

Set for initial orientation Portrait, starting in portrait - OK
Set for initial orientation Portrait, starting in landscape - shows stretched version of portrait for a moment, then it changes to the normal portrait layout chopped off at the bottom.

Set for initial orientation Landscape, starting in Landscape - OK
Set for initial orientation Landscape, starting in portrait - shows stretched version of landscape for a moment, then it changes to the normal landscape layout chopped off at the right.

This works fine when I compile with 4.6.3 and fails as above on 4.6.4 without any code or settings changes.
Same effects with iOS4 and iOS5 Beta.

Cheers

Steve

I am having the same problems. The splash screen is a problem but it happens on other pages. It appears inconsistent and somewhat related to orientation. It's odd which controls appear and which get blacked out. Sometimes I see a button and nothing else and sometimes its a field. It appears related to appearance as the controls seem to work even if I can't see them. This could be a disaster if the Livecode crew can't design a fix.

Baranmir,

The blackout issue you describe is fixed in LiveCode 5.0. The splash screen issue is not.
