Re: Getting directory list from web server??

2017-11-06 Thread Phil Davis via use-livecode

Hi Tim,

Here is a wild guess.

I maintain an account on sage too. Late last week I contacted on-rev 
support about an issue and was told this:


   There was an update to cPanel yesterday that overwrote our custom
   apache templates that allow LiveCode Server to work.

They restored the required templates and my site works again, but maybe 
their recent changes have something to do with the new behavior you see.

Phil Davis

Re: Getting directory list from web server??

2017-11-06 Thread Mike Bonner via use-livecode
My guess would be that the default setting for directory browsing on the
server has been changed to off.  You have a couple options if that is the
case.. enable directory browsing with using an htaccess file, or put an .lc
script page in there that gets the list of files and folders and returns
them to you.

To use the .htaccess method, create a .htaccess file (not the dot at the
beginning) and put this line into it..

Options +Indexes

If I remember correctly, this will affect the folder where you place it,
and its subfolders.

Re: using LC as an emulator

2017-11-06 Thread Mike Kerner via use-livecode
It's a LOT of code, all of which was originally written 30+ years ago, but
we've been maintaining it ever since.  Many of the other systems that we
have written interface with this core, and extend it, since there are much
better tools available to us, now (like LC).  It's written in HP BASIC for
an environment called Eloquence, which is an HP 3000/HP250 legacy
environment that now runs on your stock iron hardware and OS's.

Might have been.  Easy enough to make a PI that it doesn't seem to be 
worth talking about much.


Provided the things one would want to set can be obtain from the 
properties function.


Doesn't the PI rely on that?

OK. Point taken. But the OP's point is that there are properties of 
objects that aren't obvious unless you already know to look for them. I 
believe Pete Haworth went through the exercise a while back of trying to 
identify all the properties (writable or not) of an object and it's not 
a straightforward thing.


If an enhancement request is filed I'd prefer it be for an optional

Maybe "the full properties of..."?


Yeah, that was my thought as well, even before you brought up the 
one-step transformation thing. I'd support that, and it would be much 
easier than having to parse through the txt file. And keeping track of 
the properties of a given type of object is a maintenance nightmare in 
the legacy engine code.

Without it, the old-school way is "set the  of something to 
" over and over for every property value being changed.


It was not designed for learning or documentation.  It was designed 
solely for rapid development.


Hence things like htmlText being there but rtfText not.  The former is a 
tagged textual representation of everything a field can have, while 
rtfText is merely a subset of field elements suitable for certain types 
of import/export.


If an enhancement request is filed I'd prefer it be for an optional 
modifier to the existing function syntax, rather than littering the 
current function results with synonyms or subset-value props that aren't 
needed for automating property assignment.

For the intended purpose, I've been quite happy with "the properties" as-is.

That is potentially a huge amount of work. I wrote an expert system
inferencing engine in LC. It is interpreted. The rules language is very
simple syntax (essentially a rule is an IF THEN with parsing of the
boolean expression syntax for the IF and 2 possible statements for the
THEN) and it is still a fair amount of code.

What language is the source for the ERP in? I expect the language has a
reasonable robust syntax to support and ERP app. Possible a translator
to convert the source to xTalk? However, if you really want a
self-maintained ERP it might ultimately be easier to write one in LC
that convert or interpret a legacy system.

Not all properties are in the properties array. The properties array is only 
read/write properties and not that duplicate info from other properties. For

Anyone working with images knows (or learns very fast) what svg's are.
Picture is to much linked to Photo (for me it is the same), if you take a

Control properties not included in the Property Inspector

2017-11-06 Thread Alejandro Tejada via use-livecode
Hi All,

Where could I find a list of control properties that
are not included within the Property Inspector?

For example:
clipstoRect (a Boolean (true or false) property of groups)
capsStyle (a property of graphics)
joinStyle (a property of graphics)
miterLimit (a property of graphics)
fillRule (a property of graphics)
and others...

Thanks in advance!

RE: Xcode 9.1 support

2017-11-06 Thread Ralph DiMola via use-livecode
This seems to happen if you put a recent SDK(9.0) in LC 8.1.7 and then open
up LC 8.1.2. The newer unsupported SDK in the prefs will be automatically
deleted without warning by 8.1.2.

using LC as an emulator

2017-11-06 Thread Mike Kerner via use-livecode
Anyone write an emulator in LC?  I've got an old ERP system that we own all
the source to.  I'd like to.  The environment is interpreted, so if I could
make an emulator/wrapper, I could in theory move the whole thing into LC
and dump the old environments.

From every other consideration, I'd agree. My only thought is that if it

Yes, I don't see a reason why not to.

 

If so what icon/screenshots will they see?

You mean in the AppStore? I guess the screenshots you would have submitted.

 

>Also when installed what icons/splash screen will the iPhone X use?

If you don't provide a splash screen for a newer screen size (in your LC app), 
then the OS presumes that your app hasn't been updated to support that screen 
resolution 

and so runs it in a compatibility mode at the largest size you do have a splash 
screen for. You can try it on the iPhone X simulator to see how your app will 
look like.

 

Hope this helps,

This might be a stupid question, but might it be possible for this new
control to completely replace the existing image control?


It isn't a stupid question...


There aren't very many special properties relating especially to
images. If the new object implemented those at least to a first
approximation, then perhaps it could simply be called "image". All
existing uses of images would work, and the gloss would be that the
image object had gained some exciting new capabilities.


The way to look at it is that there is some 'abstract interface' (i.e. 
collection of properties and commands etc.) which are what makes an 
image imagey - then any control which implemented them *could* be 
considered an 'image' (from the point of view of the chunk).


There's certainly something there in terms of an idea for evolution of 
object chunks and such, but I'd be hesitant to try to get there right 
now without a good deal more analysis of how that might work (and 
whether such a suitable interface can be defined for 'image').


I think the best way to get images to like SVG is to allow an SVG file 
to be set as the text of the image - the image object used to have EMF 
and PICT support (I think it still may have EMF, but PICT disappeared 
with Carbon/Classic API usage) - so there is precedent.


Additionally, if we extend imageSource/icon references to be more 
general (i.e. internally any control which implements the 'I can be an 
icon' type set of actions could be used) - then I'm not sure whether 
there will be many cases left where you might want a 
 to actually be an image.


In any case, introducing a new control (which is far more than an image) 
in the first instance doesn't stop it at some point 'feeling' like an 
image from the point of view of script in the future so it seems like a 
getting the control into existence first is the best approach.



Is this a mad dream?


That depends on whether it involves saying wibble, a pair of underpants

Re: Markdown ultra-lite

Yeah, that's a really good suggestion.

I had thought of it - but the purist in me was reluctant to add a "magic 
character sequence" without any escape mechanism. And the limitation of 
"no whitespace" made it tricky to limit the context of the replace.


However - the fact that you made the suggestion has bolstered the 
pragmatist in me, so currently the pragmatist is winning over the purist :-)


Indeed, I'll make the character sequence be "_NEW_TAB_"  - and then it 
feels like enhanced readability, so it's a feature :-) Thanks.



And (yet again) thanks to this list for the help and suggestions people 
are willing to put time into ...


Alex.

I hope not, because I was thinking the same thing.  One of those properties

Here is some old code I used in the past which was modified from some other
converted I had written for Textile and BBCode. If I were writing the
converter today I would use the styledText array to do it. It is great for
converting to other formats.

Usage:

`put htmlTextToMarkdown(htmltext of fld 1)`

This might be a stupid question, but might it be possible for this new control 
to completely replace the existing image control?


There aren't very many special properties relating especially to images. If 
the new object implemented those at least to a first approximation, then 
perhaps it could simply be called "image". All existing uses of images would 
work, and the gloss would be that the image object had gained some exciting 
new capabilities.


Is this a mad dream?

Where do you think the confusion would come from?

As I said one of the goals of this control would eventually be to replace the 
image object - so at some point (all being well) you will be able to do:


   set the filename of  "foo" to "foo.png"
   set the filename of  "foo" to "foo.gif"
   set the filename of  "foo" to "foo.jpg"
   set the filename of  "foo" to "foo.png"
   ...

Or

   set the content of  "foo" to tPngData
   ...

At this point, describing the control as a 'vectorImage' might also seem 
confusing.


Warmest Regards,

Mark.

Couldn’t you simply replace your suitably chosen trailing characters with

On 2017-11-05 15:15, hh via use-livecode wrote:

Until now I saw it like that:
,  and  are HTML5 tags.
And  and  are different concepts. Roughly

 is more an XML-based vector graphics format,


Yes - SVG is a way of encoding a sequence of vector graphics commands 
using XML.



 is more an API for drawing on a bitmap surface.


True - but you can also view the canvas as an element which allows you 
to use 2D vector graphics commands from JavaScript to draw, and then 
display.


The HTML5 canvas element (and the canvas API as specified by W3C as it 
stands) is a proper subset of the LCB canvas (or will be after I've 
finished making a small tweak or two with regards separate stroke/fill 
paints).


Indeed, by extension you can view both the LCB and HTML5 Canvas APIs as 
the procedural way to render SVG (HTML5 Canvas API is not quite fully 
featured enough to make this mapping 1-1, but the LCB Canvas is almost 
that, and will become that).


Looking at things from this point of view, the control we are discussing 
is the deferred / data-driven way to display such vector graphics 
commands (without having to create separate graphic objects and such).


When thought about from this point of view, it almost becomes 'obvious' 
that canvas is the correct choice - the only difference between the 
canvas in LCS and the canvas in LCB, is that the canvas in LCB requires 
you to execute a sequence of commands whereas the proposed control in 
LCS is a sequence of deferred commands, which are executed when the 
control needs to be rendered.



Will it be possible to edit properties:

Getting and setting the points of a graphic?
Getting and setting the imagedata of a placed image?
Getting and setting the specific data of an SVG?


That is definitely a potential future direction. The canvas control's 
'content' is (at present) a sequence of commands representing the SVG 
tags which render something, along with state setting commands for 
stroke/fill/transform.


There is no reason why, in the future, you shouldn't be able to edit 
already existing commands - although for the time being you would need 
to rewrite and set the svgText property.



Can it be used for exactly one of the objects or also a mix of the
three, say an SVGicon on top of an image?


Yes - you could create an SVG fragment which describes those objects, 
and then set the svgText.


The svgText property is the same idea as the htmlText property of a 
field - it is a fully faithful representation of the field's content, 
encoded as string using HTML (well HTML-like).



For example:
A lot of people are not able to write SVG, they are simply copying
out of programs like 'inkscape' and would like to paste the code
into a property of the control. Will that be possible?


Yes - the, you will be able to set the svgText to SVG generated from any 
program. The SVG compiler removes anything it doesn't understand (as per 
the requirements of the SVG spec), and renders what is left. i.e. There 
is no need to externally process the SVG source in any way (unless you 
want to tweak it of course).


Warmest Regards,

Mark.
