Open a stack on the desktop

Hi all,

Where can I find the code to open a stack on the desktop from a standalone?

If I understood your question correctly, it would be something like

Code: Select all

open stack(specialFolderPath("Desktop") & "/your_stacks-name.livecode")
This would also work

Code: Select all

go url("binFile:" & specialFolderPath("Desktop") & "/your_stacks-name.livecode")
