Mark,

i did not wrote that i have to Retina displays. I am using an iMAc 5K and a 
Apple Thunderbolt Display, which is 2560x1440.
The only difference is that  my displays use different spaces.  That´s an 
option in Systemcontrol->Mission Control

Code Signing Blues

2018-01-14 Thread Graham Samuel via use-livecode
A couple of years ago, I got a lot of advice on this list about code signing 
Mac apps that are not being distributed via the Mac App Store, and I got some 
of it working. Trying to revive that knowledge and working with a different 
computer, I seem to have come unstuck at stage one, which is the generation of 
a valid certificate. I am a registered Apple developer, but I don’t understand 
how I ever got a proper Certification Authority to talk to, or indeed what 
happened to the certificate(s) I had then. There doesn’t seem to be much 
relevant in my Keychain, and wading through XCode when all you know is LC is a 
bit like being taught Hungarian as a foreign language (THFL - or the 
equivalent).

Can anyone give me just a little clue as to how to get my cert? After that, I 
think I know how to use AppWrapper, and indeed I’ve got a nifty LC script from 
Trevor deVore that  might do the actual signing - but no certificate, no joy.

I’d appreciate any help.

Graham

I wonder if it is the mix between retina and non-retina screens which is 
causing the problem.

I notice Mattias mentioned he couldn't reproduce with two retina screens, but 
both you and graham have a mixed setup?

Warmest Regards,

P.S. There's clearly a problem here in the engine if hit testing on stacks

Thanks Mark for wading in.

Well, it might be the mixture of screens - in fact I think that may well be it, 
because I have another development configuration with a non-Retina iMac and a 
similar monitor to the one I’ve described, and I have never seen a problem. 
Sadly, that’s about 1000 km South of where I am now, where I’ve got what the 
Retina MacBook setup. I have had to do what I suggested in an earlier email, 
which is start the MacBook with the monitor unplugged, and use the Mac in its 
highest resolution. It’s a bit of a strain on the eyes, but at least I can 
work. Sure would like to have it fixed, though.

Hi Brian

Well I tried to line up the tops of the two displays using the Mac Control 
Panel and restarted LC. This did have an interesting effect, in that the 
windows on the monitor are now accepting mouse clicks, but there is still some 
very weird stuff, in particular I have a substack with single card (it’s for 
logging). I am 100% sure that the stack is visible, and its rect is well within 
what I understand to be the available coordinates of the combined display, but 
it doesn’t show up! Changing its loc to the screenloc doesn’t do anything 
either. So there is bad stuff going on here. I’m on a deadline so I can’t look 
any further just now. Might just have time to restart my machine with the 
monitor off, but debugging on a laptop ain’t pretty. I suppose I could use the 
full retina resolution and a magnifying glass… annoying.

IIRC, the engine passes 'proper urls' straight through to the OS framework - so 
if the URL plays in a browser then it should probably work in the engine.

If it doesn't, but does in a browser then you could try using a browser widget 
instead of a player?

Not to go into detail, but I have not seen any problems using two monitors with 
a variety of mainstream Mac software, e.g Photoshop Elements, Pages, MS Word,

Ty!  (both marks!)  I have managed to get vlc working, though not in the
manner I had hoped..

http://192.168.254.3:5004/auto/v7.1?transcode=mobile -- this will tune to
channel 7.1.  (I'll be trying your method momentarily)

It also finally clicked in my noggin that plex will work with the
hdhomerun, and now has the ability to stream live.  Since I already have
freenas set up with plex, I'm using that as my dvr/streamer interface for
now.  I'll definitely be looking into a pi setup too. (I have an orange pi
laying around that i'm not doing anything with)

As for passing a url that will work with vlc to the player object instead,
no joy getting that to work so far.

So often I will try to show some stack or the script editor on the MacBook

Anyone who hasn't looked at this stack really should. It's what we've 
needed ever since SVG was introduced to LC.

I've posted an updated version of my SVG Icon Tool to my server with a
large number of icons included (everything from

Once the SVG Icon Library is updated to allow loading other icon families,
this tool can be used to help manage icon sets for applications.  There
should be no reason the LCB file in my PR couldn't be compiled in LC8, but
I've been working on it in LC9DP11 & develop.
It exports encoded LC arrays that are in the format needed for the library.

RE: Standalone Name vs Display Name

2018-01-14 Thread Ralph DiMola via use-livecode
Roger,

The "Standalone Name" is the name of the .app or the .apk(Android) files AND 
the sequential folder names created in the build folder.

The "Display Name"(iOS) and "Label"(Android) is just the the text under the app 
icon on the device.
What really makes an app unique on a device is "Internal App ID"(iOS) and 
"Identifier"(Android).

Re: Anyone else got two-monitor issues with LC9 on Mac?

2018-01-14 Thread Mark Waddingham via use-livecode
Apologies - I misread - actually one thing to check here is what 'the 
screenRects' returns. This returns a list of rects representing different 
screens - the first is primary and the rest are relative to that.

Any engine issue will likely be to do with those rects as that is the basis of 
its display coord to LiveCode coord mapping.

Warmest Regards,

If I connect to the pi over the osmc web interface I can use a RESTful

I don't know what you're trying to accomplish, but the easiest (and fun)

I don't think this is particularly complicated;

it is rather like the fact that you can have a standalone on a desktop 
system called something (e.g. "XXX")
but when the standalone opens it can have something else on its title 
bar (e.g. "Oh, you expected XXX").

The "Title" in stack properties is only seen in the IDE and desktop apps. On 
Mobile this is never displayed. You could leave it defaulted to the stack name. 
I usually make it nice to read and identify so the title bars in the IDE are 
easy on the eyes.

I was using Java 6.x (the Apple version) until LC 8.1 where it failed. I

Re: Anyone else got two-monitor issues with LC9 on Mac?

2018-01-14 Thread Paul Hibbert via use-livecode
Just to add to the mix, I have been using a two monitor system for many years, 
I now have an iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, 2017) connected to an Eizo ColorEdge 
CG 241W, the iMac is 4096 x 2304 and the Eizo is 1920 x 1200, both driven by 
the same Radeon Pro 560 4 GB card. Both monitors are set to default scaling and 
I do normally keep the top edges aligned with the menubar on the iMac screen.

I didn’t see too many problems until I upgraded the iMac from a 2009 model. 
With the new iMac, initially I tried using 2 adaptors to connect the 2nd 
monitor, going from USB-C (Thunderbolt) to Display-Port and then Display-Port 
to DVI, not surprisingly that didn’t work too well. Now I have an after-market 
USB-C to DVI adapter and it has improved no end, looking through the reviews on 
Amazon it seems the quality of the adapter can make a difference. AFAIK Apple 
don’t produce/sell a USB-C to DVI adapter.

I have seen problems with bad alignment of LC stacks if the tops of the screens 
are not aligned in the Display Prefs and I had all sorts of minor problems with 
many different apps if I moved the menu bar to the Eizo or didn’t align the 
tops of the displays, to the point where I almost gave up using a second 
monitor.

Now I keep the tops of the displays aligned and the system MenuBar and LC 
toolbar/toolbox on the iMac and I tend to keep the stack windows on the iMac 
(although not always), I use the Eizo mainly for the Script Editor and 
Dictionary along with the Project Browser and I haven’t seen any major problems 
lately. Occasionally the cursor just disappears, but comes back if I move it to 
the iMac Display or manage to hit the dock at the bottom of the screen, that’s 
not just in LC though.

Problems are definitely not limited to LiveCode, some apps will not work well 
if I attempt to use the second monitor, so I suspect there are some underlying 
OS issues,  possibly from mixing the two different types of display. One of the 
worst apps is Flux 7, it’s almost unusable without some major adjustments to 
the app windows.

After seeing Mark’s last response in this thread I tried a few tests with the 
display arrangements and switching the MenuBar around, everything was working 
as expected until I arranged the bottom of both displays and then tried to 
re-arrange so the tops of the displays aligned (approx the 7th arrangement), 
then the LC revMenuBar ended up in the middle of the iMac display and I 
couldn’t see any response from clicking on the stack, LC toolbox/toolbar or any 
open palette. As soon as I used the message box to reset the position of the 
revMenuBar everything started working again. Then I re-started LC, the 
positions were screwed up again, so I trashed the prefs and all is fine again.

My thought are; from my experience this isn’t just a LC issue, the quality/type 
of adapter may help, keeping the Mac MenuBar on the Mac seems to be more stable 
and it doesn’t seem to affect the way most apps work AFAICS, keeping the tops 
of the Displays aligned in the Prefs pane also helps especially in LC, some 
apps just don’t support dual/multiple monitors well. My final observation is 
switching the display options around with LC open can really screw up it's 
prefs!

Re: Anyone else got two-monitor issues with LC9 on Mac?

2018-01-14 Thread MWCM via use-livecode
I have an issue that isn’t exactly the same but may be related. Seldom do I 
work on two monitors, but my display configuration is constantly changing.  My 
primary development machine is a 15” Retina MacBook Pro. The main project I 
work on is a large stack (iPhone 7 native resolution) stack that I work with at 
a scaleFactor of 0.5 so it fits on my internal Retina display and doesn’t take 
too much screen real estate on the external. 

When on-the-go, I use the Retina display in the “almost largest display” 
setting (not the far right biggest resolution option and not the middle 
recommended option). 

When in the office I work docked (laptop closed) and connect the laptop to an 
external keyboard/mouse and external 4K display (via mini DisplayPort) and 
sometimes also a 1080i (via HDMI). When docked, I NEVER use the built-in 
display.

Every time I launch that stack, the top of the stack is off the top of my 
screen. Doesn’t matter what display setup I’m using, I always have to open the 
stack inspector and change the Y position of the stack so the whole thing 
appears on my screen.

Drag And Drop Rows

2018-01-14 Thread Sannyasin Brahmanathaswami via use-livecode
I was examining the API for Datagrid2 in 9 dp 11

Swiping looks interesting, but I'm also looking for " drag-to-arrange"  for 
mobile

With similar "cool" UI animation behavior where if you drag a sub-mini-group, 
which comprises a row of a large vertically or horizontal scrolling parent 
group, there is some delta which, when entered, if the row being dragged up or 
down, or left and right, pausem and suddenly the two underlying rows separate 
and allow you to drop the drag-row to this new location. The better designed 
ones, the underlying rows are reacting during the drag until the user drops.

Has anyone build such a thing? If so, can you share?

use cases: Like in Spotify, where album covers with titles and artists names 
are subgroups and these would be on a left to right scrolling group that the 
user could rearrange. In "My Book Library" data grid is vertical, user wants to 
re-arrange to manually sort her/his titles vertically. Re-arrange "Favorites"  
list (made up of complex subgroups with icons text and other data in a row) 
etc.  Rearrange an outline, etc… many similar scenarios.

I ask to be doubly-sure and because recent list messages warn against

Main screen (middle) 15" MBP Retina set to 1920 x 1200
Left Monitor 21" Samsung SyncMaster set to 1440 x 900 (default)
Right Monitor 24" Benq set to 1920 x 1080 (default)

The MBP is running 10.11.6
I do NOT use the Spaces feature of OS X
LC 9.0.0 dp 11

Graham, when you see this, open the Tool Palette (TP), move it so it's
directly adjacent to the PB with the tops aligned. As you move the
mouse over the TP you'll notice that the wrong icons will highlite. So
for instance in one test I did, I had the mouse over the 'Player'
icon, yet the 'Clock' icon highlited (offset high). In another test I
had the mouse over the 'Pointer tool' yet the 'Check Box' icon
highlited (offset low).  With this knowledge you can easily get the PB
to work. Move the mouse over the TP until an icon horizontally aligned
with the +/- icon (or any of the Tree view objects listed) is
highlited, then move the mouse horizontally into the PB until it's
directly above/below the +/- icon (or any other object listed) and
Click. The offset of where the click actually occurs in comparison to
where the mouse visibly is is exactly the same in the PB as the TP.

Of course this is a silly way to work. The whole lot can be fixed
simply as others have pointed out, align the tops of the monitors in
the Display Preference Pane.

I just wanted to prove it's the same issue.

I should have also noted that I didn't see the problem with a small
misalignment of the tops in the Display Preference Pane; the tops had
to be quite far apart. Also, what was strange was that just because
the additional monitors may have been set to above the central MBP in
the Display Preference Pane, it didn't always result in an 'offset
high' situation - the Click occurring above the visible position of
the Mouse. Sometimes it was offset high, sometimes low.

You should see what happens with three monitors on version 9
