Testing spell checking with Hunspell Extension

2020-04-22 Thread Trevor DeVore via use-livecode
Hi Everyone,

I've been working on an LCB extension which wraps the Hunspell library.
This library is used for spell checking.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hunspell

I have finished a first pass that works on my Windows 8 and 10
installations with LiveCode 9.6dp-4 32 and 64-bit. I would be interested in
having some other people test it out to see if it works for them. I'm
hoping that those with Windows versions of LiveCode that support LCB could
test it out and see if everything works in the test stack. The Github repo
is at the url below and there is a section titled "Testing" which explains
the steps.

https://github.com/trevordevore/lc-hunspell

The extension is available under an MIT license and it would be nice to
have some others look over the code, make some improvements, compile a
Linux .so, etc.

The repo includes a French dictionary for testing. There are lots of
dictionaries available for Hunspell, however. I've downloaded dictionaries
from https://extensions.openoffice.org before. I also came across this
github repo today which has a large list of 90 compatible dictionaries:

Re: Scrollbar scale value not showing in Windows

2020-04-22 Thread Devin Asay via use-livecode
Verified on Windows 10. The default size of the scrollbar object obscures the 
scale values. Just increase the height of the scrollbar/slider (if your sb 
orientation is horizontal) or the width of the sb (if the orientation is 
vertical.)

Hi.
I thought this was a bug in the control years ago, until I inadvertently 
stretched it, and the values simply appeared. Eureka! This on a Mac.

I have a small app that I've written for my lockdown-affected class, and the 
students with Windows can not see the value of 'scale' type scrollbar controls 
that have their showValue property set to true, but the Macs can.  Is there a 
cross-platform trick that I don't know?

That's 1/3 of why I keep my work folders synced with my local Nextcloud 
server.


(The other 2/3 is that all those versions are safely backed up, and kept 
up to date on all the machines I use for testing.)

It’s no substitute for GitHub and the like, but I have a rather simple system 
that intercepts saveStackRequest, checks the date, and saves a new version with 
the date as part of the name.  I also have a bmpVrsn routine that can be used 
to advance a letter during the day, so things like 200422b for the second 
version of a stack from today.

I did a simple presentation with handout code for this at last year’s developer 
conference.

I can probably find them around somewhere.

The current problem with GitHub and stuff is the lack of a text file based 
storage, although I know someone has an add-on for that.

Re: Mobile text input mystery

2020-04-22 Thread Graham Samuel via use-livecode
 Reading your response, Mark, I didn't feel so bad, since the LC Dictionary 
says for example about mobileControlSet

 syntax: mobileControlSet idOrName, PropertyName, value

and later explains

 idOrName  - the id or name of the control

So I therefore saw the two ways of referring to the control as apparently 
interchangeable.

However, I changed my openCard handler according to your suggestion and nothing 
at all changed. I think there must be some other factor, but as usual I just 
can’t see it.

Just to labour the point, here is my actual handler with the original names in 
place. The answer call works as expected:

on opencard -- we dynamically create a field for the user to key in the radius

global sinputID -- this is all from the LC lesson

   if environment() = "mobile" then

  mobileControlCreate "input", "FRadiusText" -- so the user can type in

  put the result into sinputID

  answer "opening text field for radius input. ID created is:" && sinputID 
&& "Name is:" && "FRadiusText"

 mobileControlSet "FRadiusText", "rect", "114,135,163,158" -- this is where 
the original rect was

  mobileControlSet "FRadiusText", "visible", "true"

  mobileControlSet "FRadiusText", "opaque", "true"

end if

end opencard


Still puzzled

Graham

Re: Which git service suits a LiveCoder best?

2020-04-22 Thread Mike Kerner via use-livecode
github.  pricing is getting better, especially in the last month, to
compete with gitlab.  we have projects in both github and gitlab (and I
guess one person is messing with Azure, or whatever M$'s other git thang
is), but people seem to be using github more.
gitkraken is the most popular gui our people use.  part of that is because
of its glo boards, which give you a card/kanban style view of issues,
to-do's, calendars, etc., integrates with slack, blah, blah, blah.  It also
can be integrated with issues in github, which is nice because the
interface is better and easier to organize than issues, especially if you
have a lot of them.  Our ERP project, for example, has 201 issues open
right now.  Some of them are just one feature request or bug report, but
some of them are thirty or more sub-items deep with many
comments, documents, screen shots, etc. on them.
the person messing with Azure is using Visual Studio's git interface, one
is using github's client, and one is using the Working Copy app on ios.
Even if you don't choose gitkraken as your git client, you should check out
glo.  You can access glo any number of ways, including inside GK, from GK's
website, from slack, from Atom (and I think from SublimeText) and the glo
mobile app for ios.

I'm pretty sure if you give your mobileControl a name (FMyText) in this 
case, then that is the only way you can refer to it. You can only use 
'the result' of the Create function *if* you didn't give it a name.


So you need to do either:

  mobileControlCreate "input", "FMyText"
  mobileControlSet "FMyText", ...

OR

  mobileControlCreate "input"
  put the result into sinputID
  mobileControlSet sinputID, ...

Mobile text input mystery

As usual, the problem will be my fault, but I can’t get a mobile input field to

statement:

location on the card
mobileControlSet sinputID, "visible", "true"
mobileControlSet sinputID, "opaque", "true"

As far as I’m concerned this comes straight out of the LC dictionary. When I 
run this in the iPhone simulator, it the ‘answer’ fires, and the ID is 1. But 
nothing appears on the card.

Can anyone explain what I’m doing wrong this time? I seem to have a lot of 
trouble getting dynamic elements like fields, keyboards and selection scrollers 
to appear, but the above is the simplest problem I have in that line.

Hi Andreas,

I use GutHub for my LiveCode projects but haven’t looked at other services.
I enjoy using it and they recently reduced pricing and made a team account
available for free which is great.

There aren’t any special tools for LiveCode on GitHub that I’m aware of. It
isn’t even recognized as a language by GitHub. At the moment I’m investing
how I might get automated builds working for my Levure apps using GitHub
and CircleCI. I’m in the very early stages of research and haven’t made any
real progress yet.

I love using Tower for my Git GUI. I’ve been very pleased with it.

Re: Which git service suits a LiveCoder best?

2020-04-22 Thread Brian Milby via use-livecode
All of my LC stuff is on GitHub (bwmilby).  I’m primarily Mac and use 
Atlassian’s Sourcetree to interact with my repositories.  I use my own 
ScriptTracker tool to export the scripts of stacks so I can track the changes.

Thanks,
Brian

Which git service suits a LiveCoder best?

2020-04-22 Thread Andreas Bergendal via use-livecode
Hi everybody, first time posting to this list, so I hope I get it right… :)

I need your wisdom on a slightly off-topic issue, though seen in the LiveCode 
perspective:
I’ve never used git, but I want to start now. 

I’m working on several LC projects, some with co-developers, several with 
commercial potential, so I need to get more professional with version control 
and other benefits that come with git.

I’ll educate myself on how to use it, but: Step one seems to be to select a git 
host/system.
GitHub is the obvious giant, but is it the best for my needs?

- I use LiveCode, obviously, so is any git service in any way more suited for 
that?
- I’m not very familiar with using the command line, so I’d prefer a git 
service that has software that handles that, as far as possible. (Yeah, I’m a 
developer, I can learn, but hey, we promote the xTalk way here, no? Command 
line seems very much in the opposite side of the spectrum of readable code…)
- I develop on Mac, in case that is a factor when choosing git solution?

So, in short: How do I best get started with git when working with LiveCode on 
Mac, in small teams or alone, wishing minimal use of command line?

Do I just let gravity pull me into the GitHub gas giant, or join a rebel moon? 
:)

Best
