Enter something like this into the message box, move the cursor over the field-in-question and hit enter:

Code: Select all

set the textfont of the mousecontrol to "Your fancy font here...";set the textsize of the mousecontrol to 26
Then enter:

Code: Select all

save the mousestack
leave the cursor where it is and hit enter again (Optional)

Et voila font and size changed for THIS version of LC. :D

That's great, especially as my efforts at editing the 'results' field in the 'Message Box'
stack wouldn't stick.

Yep, the "mouseXXXX" things come in quite handy from time to time! :D

This is another great example of the fact that everything in LC is "just a stack".

All hackable, though oftentimes at your peril.

You might try to use html to change the properties of the text. https://sites.google.com/a/pgcps.org/li ... euser/html

It worked on the answer command in previous versions

Heya Cyril,

Is there anyway to get a complete indexing of that pgcps site (preferably by topic)? I always find the information useful, but sometimes difficult to dig out.

Hi Bogs,
Sorry, I no longer have edit control of that website. I can not make any changes or updates. I do not have a site map, higher view or index of it.

I agree, there are many cool samples of code and solutions to problems that my students worked out. I wish I could expound on them and make them more visible.

I was going to move it to my new site but could not figure a way to do it easily. That site was written using Google webpages and has a lot of garbage and extraneous code. If you know a way, I would appreciate it.

Otherwise, there are so many other websites on LiveCode, I don’t know if it is worth the effort re-doing it.

Are you volunteering? 🤨

Thanks, it is good to here from you. Maybe next time I am in Europe, we can meet over a brew. 👍😊

I'll see if I can get a decent scrape of it.

If you want to download the entire site, use sitesucker. http://ricks-apps.com/osx/sitesucker/index.html. It is a great utility.

I would be happy to provide hosting for the repository in a subdomain at LiveCodeJournal.com if needed.

Very generous offer Richard, specially since we don't know the size of the site yet :shock: Much appreciated. :)
