Re: Instantiaing Grouped Controls - Templates - Responsive

2017-06-07 Thread Terry Judd via use-livecode
Hi BR - for me it depends on how many instances of the control I’m likely to 
need on the screen. If I only ever display one at a time then I usually include 
it as a shared group and place it on any card that might require it and 
show/hide, populate and layer it dynamically as required. If I need multiple 
instances of it then then I do the copy thing and discard and instances when I 
leave the screen. I don’t usually create these sorts of multi-part controls 
from scratch and I haven’t used text only stacks so I don’t really have any 
advice there. I also love the flexibility of datagrids so I tend to use them 
(on both mobile and desktop) wherever I need a list-style control, no matter 
how simple it is.

HTH,

Terry...

3) info-text field
4) widget with SVG close "X out"path, top right..

I put this script in the group "info-display"… it works just fine. Yay! 
mission accomplished for a) responsive control

on resizeControl
lock screen
set the rect of img "info-bkgnd-img" to the rect of me
set the width of grc "info-field-bkgnd" to the width of me * .87

set the width of fld "info-text" to the width of me * .80
set the height of fld "info-text" to the height of me * .80
set the loc of img "info-bkgnd-img" to the loc of me
set the loc of grc "info-field-bkgnd" to the loc of me
set the loc of fld "info-text" to the loc of me
set the right of widget "close-info" to the right of fld "info-text"
set the bottom of widget "close-info" to the top of grc "info-field-bkgnd" 
- 5
set the loc of me to the loc of this card
unlock screen
end resizeControl

So far, I'm sure this is baby talk for most of you.

But the next question is

b)  about best strategy for instantiation.

1) does it make sense to build this dynamically as needed from script using 
"create" and then you put this "create control" script into a library? It has 
the advantage of no binary object, so you can keep it in your text only 
"stacks" .livecodescript, but could be slow?

OR

2) is it faster (on Android or iOS especially)  to create it as a template 
group  then use

copy grp "info-display"  of card 1 of stack "dialog-templates" to this card

??

What has your experience led you to choose as your best practice and why 
and how do you do it?

Similarly we have small "lists" Indices… that are typically rows of grouped 
controls. Using data grid would be overkill in most contexts… so the default is 
to create a "row" as a group, duplicate this and then group all those rows as a 
single scrolling group.
so this is a similar pattern: use a template and copy the group? or 
instantiate them dynamically from script? Which is better/faster? IYHO

Re: 64 bit desktop apps

2017-06-07 Thread Jerry Jensen via use-livecode
Is this for sure and official? I am working on an LC front end for a legacy 
system that sits upon an old XCode port of a database system called DB Vista 
(written in old testament C as for unix). It is definitely NOT 64 bit. I 
mentioned this to my colleague, who did the port and the first layer on top of 
it. His response was “I am hiding under the blakets with my fingers in my ears”.

Is your library for the LC Server CGI, or does it require a custom LC 
standalone daemon?


If CGI then on-rev would seem a good fit, or HostM which also has LC 
pre-installed, or just about any other shared hosting service if you 
don't mind setting up the CGI yourself.


VPSes are great when you need custom configuration, but they can be a 
challenge to set up when you're learning, and a bigger challenge to 
harden sufficiently, things a shared hosting service takes care of.

A minimal RevSpark based server just for this. Should work

The SB by default builds for 32-bit mode, but you can choose 64-bit by 
checking the appropriate box.


When Apple begins requiring 64-bit, it would be a good idea to make this 
the default in the SB.

Re: [ANN] Introducing Remote DB Lib

2017-06-07 Thread Dan Brown via use-livecode
I purchased to support and tinker. What would be really stellar is a
livecode standalone that can be run on a webserver and act as a restful API
endpoint for a database, all without the need for php. There are some
websocket / httpd vodoo stacks floating around from years ago that were
exploring that kind of functionality.  Revspark 2017 perhaps...

Hey Bob,

Setting up web servers is beyond what I can do in that documentation. It is
not that hard but it is really outside of the scope of database libraries.
My advise is for you to get a small VPS on Digital Ocean, they cost 5 USD
per month and their setup guides are amazing, for example, check this one
out:


https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-linux-apache-mysql-php-lamp-stack-on-ubuntu-16-04

:D :D :D

Also, on-rev should be an easy sell here for RunRev helps sets things up
right? Am I wrong? I haven't been up to date with on-rev stuff...

Solving database sync is a very custom job. It is quite tricky, I don't
know if I can build a generic enough lib for this but I might try. If I do,
then it will be added to DB Lib just like this one.

contectRect and scaleFactor

2017-06-07 Thread Dan Friedman via use-livecode
So, I have a stack that I set the scaleFactor to 1.5 if it’s on a iPhone (I 
leave it at 1 if it’s an iPad).  All is fine, looks great!   However, when I 
add a native scroller to a locked group, the contectRect doesn’t take the 
scaleFactor into account.  So, the scroller scrolls too far to the right and 
the bottom.  I would have thought this would have fixed it, but it’s not right:

if the scaleFactor of this stack <> 1 then
put the scaleFactor of this stack into tFactor
put mobileControlGet(scrollerName,"contentRect") into fRect

put round(item 3 of fRect/ tFactor) into item 3 of fRect
subtract round(item 1 of fRect/ tFactor) from item 3 of fRect

put round(item 4 of fRect/ tFactor) into item 4 of fRect
subtract round(item 2 of fRect/ tFactor) from item 4 of fRect

mobileControlSet scrollerName,"contentRect",fRect
end if

Anyone have any ideas how to correct the scroller so it correctly stays in the 
bounds like it does when  the scaleFactor = 1?

Thanks in advance!
-Dan

This will take some refactoring for me but I think I must go this route. 
Unfortunately, I have never set up a web server to do this, which I assume I 
will need to do. Does this add-on/plugin have basic instructions for getting 
that side up and running?

As I said above:

In any case, I'm not sure why it is 'worrying' (especially as we have
had two staff join us recently).

What would be worrying is if companies started locking their employees
up in chains and never let them leave! ( It would also be illegal, in
the UK at least ;) ).

LiveCode 8.x onwards.

Currently the IDE runs in 32-bit mode by default (you can change this by 
using 'Get Info' on the LiveCode app bundle, and unchecking the box).


The SB by default builds for 32-bit mode, but you can choose 64-bit by

[ANN] Release 8.1.4

2017-06-07 Thread panagiotis merakos via use-livecode
Dear List Members,

We are pleased to announce the release of LiveCode 8.1.4 Stable. By
"Stable", we mean that no reported regressions have been introduced in
8.1.4, compared to the previous Stable release.

LiveCode 8.1.4 contains 87 extra bug fixes and new features, compared to
LiveCode 8.1.3.

In LiveCode 8.1.4 we believe we have finally managed to close a can of
worms, related to crashes when deleting objects under specific
circumstances. Moreover, several regression bugs that were introduced in
previous releases of LiveCode 8.x have now been fixed, so that makes
LiveCode 8.1.4 very stable. Last but not least, LiveCode 8.1.4 includes
support for building iOS apps using the latest iOS SDKs, included in Xcode
8.3.x.

You can get the release at https://downloads.livecode.com/livecode/ or via
the automatic updater.

Please report any bugs encountered on our BugZilla at
http://quality.livecode.com/

Warmest regards,
The LiveCode Team

LC 8.1.4 rc3 getting the rect of the videoPlayer returns different coords as in rc2

2017-06-07 Thread Tiemo Hollmann TB via use-livecode
Hello,

 

I am resizing the videoPlayer object by script and export snapshots of the
videoPlayer.

In 8.1.2 or 8.1.3 I had to  adapt my scipt for placing and resizing the
videoplayer for Mac only by the hight of the menubar (before LC 8 the code
was on Win and Mac the same)

Now with LC 8.1.4 rc3 I again have to adapt the script for getting the rect
for the snapshot of the videoPlayer on Mac only by the hight of the manubar.

Has anybody encountered similar differences in getting rects depending on
the menubar? Is this wanted? Has anything changed in calculating the hight
of the menubar on Mac?

Tiemo
