XAML tools, viewers and converters

2017-07-22 Thread Alejandro Tejada via use-livecode
I am testing different tools, viewers and converters before starting
writing a script that would import Xaml files.

Could you post which applications do you use to work with Xaml files?

Although Inkscape could save svg as xaml, I found svg2xaml.exe
more useful to convert svg files to Xaml:
http://xamltune.codeplex.com/releases/view/21436

Probably, Mike Swanson plug-in XAMLExport.aip does a better work converting
svg to xaml, but I do not have
Adobe Ilustrator CC 2014 to test it:

http://www.mikeswanson.com/xamlexport/

Xaml viewers that I found useful are Kaxaml and Okino Xaml File Viewer:

http://kaxaml.com/
http://www.okino.com/conv/free_xaml_viewer.htm

If you know about other tools, viewers and converters, then test and post
your results, using these attached xaml and svg files.

Download the example xaml and svg files (65k) from forum post:
http://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?f=10=29533

Many thanks in advance!

Re: Ethereal Breakpoints

2017-07-22 Thread Sannyasin Brahmanathaswami via use-livecode
all of the above experiences confirmed here.. it's so bad sometimes I remove 
all break points from the menu, save everything, shut down and start add manual 

breakpoint 

in the actual code. with my text editor (using 85% script only  
text.livecodescripts now) 
then reboot and pray.

such a nuisance.

no recipe.

Re: Swipe transitions

2017-07-22 Thread Sannyasin Brahmanathaswami via use-livecode
yes, this!

The deeper I get into mobile design the more it becomes clear that true 
swipe transitions are somnething users expect, and by extension 
something new developers would expect to be supported.

hit me hard yesterday when a new beta tester, 15 year old with an iPod Touch  
with no cell or data connection (parents don’t' want him to have that yet) but 
can get everything on wifi, and has lots of apps … little thing is really a 
jewel. Makes my iPhone 7 look liks some kind of semi-truck! ha

anyway, the device is so small, he can practically reach his thumb to the top 
of the screen, so I logged him into our local wifi. got his UDID from xCode 
install our new SivaSiva app.

 I was amazed at how often he would "flick" his thumb, left or right, expecting 
something to happen.  I had to say " you can only go up or down tap to 
navigate."

And this: from a visitor today, retired lady teaching in three remote schools 
in Bengal now 

Q: how many of these poor kids in remote areas have phones?
A: Answer  "Swamiji! *everyone* has phones! It's amazing, even the boatman will 
be padding with one leg and talking on is phone on the other (lots of water 
ways in Bengal) They are all buying inexpensive Androids from Korea… "MicroMax" 
I think they are.."

Q: how many of these kids have any facility in English
A: among the young: 30-40%

Oh boy… gotta get me one of these MicroMaxes… did think I would have such a 
huge market in Bengal remote villiages!

and, they too will all be swiping!

sign on to my feature request/bug report from whenever it was.  Also, Scott

Re: Setting image source of fld char to remote URL

2017-07-22 Thread hh via use-livecode
Of course you can get the display in a browser widget by
setting the htmltext alone if you give the image source
_directly_ (as part of the htmltext) as base64 encoded data.

"
[After LC-base64-encode replace linefeed with empty in the data.]

Re: Setting image source of fld char to remote URL

2017-07-22 Thread hh via use-livecode
Browser widget:
Use a HTML-file and set the URL of the widget to that file.
Setting the htmltext alone in order to get an image from a server
usually doesn't work (what is the same with all browsers, this is
not LC-special). If you wish to work with the image, you may have
to respect the same-origin-policy.

Imagesource:
To display an image from URL  (on a server) in a field,
for example at size 80x60 at char 42:
1. create invisible img "i1"
2. set the filename of img "i1" to 
[You can access by that the formattedWidth and formattedHeight].
3. set the width of img "i1" to 80; set the height of img "i1" to 60
4. set the imagesource of char 42 of fld 1 to "i1"

There are also examples in "Sample stacks" for using javascript and
canvas2d. But this gives, TMHO, no advantage advantage here, only
increases datasize by 30% by using base64.

Setting image source of fld char to remote URL

2017-07-22 Thread Sannyasin Brahmanathaswami via use-livecode
Our new heifer, Kali is a "doll"

http://www.himalayanacademy.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/kali-the-calf/kali-real-close.JPG

playing around with a silly brainstorm… "in app blog thingy"

on mouseUp
set the imageSource of last char of fld "app-news" to 
"http://www.himalayanacademy.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/kali-the-calf/kali-real-close.JPG;
end mouseUp


does nothing.. but , create an image, set loc -3000 get It's ID  and this does 
work

on mouseUp
set the filename of img "app-news-img-1" to 
"http://www.himalayanacademy.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/kali-the-calf/kali-real-close.JPG;
set the imageSource of last char of fld "app-news" to 1005
end mouseUp

needs some rect math on the image size to fit (wish we had engine level resize 
image-preserve-ratio pWidth, pHeight, different subject)

OR

I am working too hard and will probably just use the browser widget

BUT

I think there are contexts/use cases for  having remote images appear in line 
in fields

this also doesn't work

create field "news-html"

fill with

 Welcome to Planet Earth, Kali!
http://www.himalayanacademy.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/kali-the-calf/kali-real-close.JPG;
 /"
What a gift!


on mouseUp
set the htmltext of fld "app-news" to fld "news-html"
end mouseUp

we get

Welcome to Planet Earth, Kali
What a gift!

but no image.

am I missing anything or is this all just as expected: what we get…

Well done. I like the simplicity of that.

I think I was originally over-thinking it, about options for specifying 
snap-back thresholds and more.  But there's enough consistency these 
days to decide on good defaults and just run with those.


@LC Team: Can we have that next Tuesday please?

LC  mobile is *marketed* as having this for mobile.  It's just that the
"partner" won't talk to us.

Then again, supper I bought it supposedly supported eps when I bought it
(which meant on a couple of unix that had display postscript . . .)
