Looks like a regression in 8 from 7. Just did a quick test and don’t see the issue in 7.1.4 but do in 8/9. Bug 18213 On Sun, Oct 29, 2017 at 9:55 PM Roger Guay via use-livecode < use-livecode@lists.runrev.com> wrote: > Why can’t I set the decorations of a stack to only “Title” without that >

Why can’t I set the decorations of a stack to only “Title” without that damnable green ball coming in every time? LC 8.1.6 and Mac OS 10.13. Thanks, Roger ___ use-livecode mailing list use-livecode@lists.runrev.com Please visit this url to subscribe,

What I meant was not that you shouldn't file a QR, but that I think that all the requests for relative paths should be combined because I think relative paths across LC would be beneficial. Sorry for not being clear about that. I have four obvious cases, where I see a benefit: 1) Using multiple

So the ask is for a check box in the PI (near the source field with a label like “Relative path”)? And when checked, the PI would automatically trim the path to be relative to the stack file (probably with the assumption that it only goes down the hierarchy). Or are you asking for a preference

Hi Richard LiveCode does not currently have websocket support. As this has come up recently in a number of areas I had a quick look at the spec (https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6455 ). It looks relatively feasible to implement on top of our current socket

Backstory: Sometime back in a round with HQ we got the engine to "remember" relative path settings for the filenames of images/players etc.. such that it would not default to full path from root on the drive which makes the path unique to that user and no longer portable… so "relativity" go

Thank you! 1. In the mean while built just a double button scheme, let's see how it looks with the devices. Look forward to simplifying back to single buttons with the new icons for checkBox and radio buttons. "When" is my 2-3 year old question, though. Just ask a nerd nearby to do the job.

Answer 1. This is solvable as soon as icons are settable using SVG. Other scaling would result in non-smooth displays as the icons are images. But you could make a set of images for different "resolutions" and use these images as "icons" for the buttons, dependent on your scale. Also you could

1. Question 1: What is the problem with getting the radio buttons "tick boxes" scalable? Trying to remember, I asked about it for a few years ago, and the answer by LC team was, it is about the icon?? I tried using switch button widgets, but the scaling of those isn't linear (width / height)
