Re: iOS builds ignore taps

2020-06-01 Thread scott--- via use-livecode
And it seems that, at least in my last run-in, the taps were actually going 
through… it is just that they weren't being drawn on the screen. I had 
displayed a group with a visual effect inside a rect… only controls inside the 
rect appeared unresponsive. When put away using  unlock the screen with visual 
effect, I could briefly see the selection on some radio buttons change.

I don’t use fullscreenMode. Is acceleratedRendering a default requirement of 
fullscreenMode?

I’ve been unable to create a simple recipe. In my cases I am suspicious that it 
has something to do with overlapping groups… but obviously it is more than that.

Re: ADA Compliency

2020-06-01 Thread Andrew at MidWest Coast Media via use-livecode

I’m glad this has been brought up as I have done some internal investigation 
myself, with mixed results. A higher education institute I work for pushes us 
hard for a11y forward workflows (to the point where we’re supposed to include a 
text description of any MEMEs we post in the official Slack channel). This made 
me aware of some common issues and tools for adaptive technology.

As Curry mentioned (bravo for the excellent thread), there are LOTS of 
impairments to consider with absolutely zero practical way of accommodating 
them all. For the sake of web/mobile most usability requirements would tend to 
land on touch/motor (adaptive input), vision (text size, screen colors, text to 
speech), and hearing (transcripts and audio descriptions). iOS has some great 
accessibility features built-in that (I’ve been told by our “experts”) are the 
most common tools for the platform. 

So I gave them a go with a simple Livecode stack consisting of:
- native text field with content
- Livecode text field with content
- native button
- 3 Livecode text fields next to each other

A basic test that I tried was using the VoiceOver option. This is basically 
text to speech at the OS level. Everything in my Livecode app was recognized as 
“possible text” by the OS, including the system clock in the corner, but not 
even the native text fields were “recognized" as text. This worked ok if the 
text had a wide line length across the whole screen, but fell apart if fields 
with word wrap were placed next to each other (columns were ignored and reads 
across the entire screen, then goes “down a line” and reads across the screen, 
etc.). None of the text options take into account the Display & Text Size 
system settings.

iOS builds ignore taps

2020-06-01 Thread J. Landman Gay via use-livecode
Has anyone seen this problem? On an iOS build, normal LC controls sometimes do not respond to 
mouseUp events. There are no native controls involved -- the worst offender is a regular LC 
graphic that serves as a login button. Sometimes it just doesn't trigger. Other times it's a 
locked LC field that needs to respond with clicktext. No handlers run at all.


Sometimes if I edit a script (any script, not the object involved) and rebuild, taps work again 
in some places but still not in others.


This is only on iOS. In the IDE and Android everything works normally.

Re: [ANN] Release 9.6.0

2020-06-01 Thread Graham Samuel via use-livecode
Panos, what does “LiveCodeIndy-9_6_0-M Resource Busy" mean? Basically I 
downloaded the dmg and got that. No other version of LC was open at the time, 
but the machine (an iMac running HIgh Sierra) has not been rebooted since the 
last use of LiveCode. I will restart now - but it shouldn’t happen, should it?

[ANN] Release 9.6.0

2020-06-01 Thread panagiotis merakos via use-livecode
Dear list members,

We are pleased to announce the release of LiveCode 9.6.0.


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


Release Contents

LiveCode 9.6.0 comes with more than 120 changes since the last stable
release (9.5.1) including:

New Features
  - Support for Storyboard launch images and backgrounds on iOS
  - Support for using the flash as a torch in the Android Barcode Scanner
  - Support for building with Xcode 11.4, using the iOS 13.4 SDK
  - New tsNet and mergExt builds, built with the iOS 13.4 SDK
  - The mobile player control has been updated to use the AVKit framework
on iOS. This fixes a lot of existing bugs, including some new issues on iOS
13+ devices.
  - The mobile browser control has been updated to use the WebKit framework
on iOS. This provides better performance on iOS devices.
  - The "open printing to pdf ..." command can now be used to direct
printing to a PDF output file on Android devices.
  - New CEF build is included, which addresses rendering issues with the
browser widget in some 32bit Windows devices.
  - New "focusModes" and "focusMode" properties are implemented for the
Android camera control.
  - The ability to pass "detailed-utf8" to the files() and folders()
function to preserve unicode filenames has been added.
  - Support for merging activity attributes is added in the Android
Manifest Merging mechanism
  - New text to speech library for iOS, Android and MacOS (Indy/Business
only)
  - Improved text rendering on Android
  - Objective-C block support in LCB
  - Ability to detect dark mode on MacOS, iOS and Android
  - Improvements on mobilePickPhoto on Android, including support for front
camera
  - Ability to highlight none of the icons in the navigation bar widget

Bug Fixes:

  - Significant performance improvement when saving stacks on Windows
  - Improvements in the Windows FFI in LCB
  - Fixes to drag-drop on macOS and Windows
  - Windows camera control now produces much higher quality output

For the full list of all fixes, updates and enhancements please see the
release notes:
http://downloads.livecode.com/livecode/9_6_0/LiveCodeNotes-9_6_0.pdf


Known issues

- The Browser widget's native layer is not shown in some Linux distros with
Cinnamon window manager.
- The use of the Browser widget is not supported on Ubuntu 18.04 64 bit LTS
yet.
- The mergSettings external still uses the UIWebView API on iOS, so
checking "mergSettings" in the Inclusions pane will cause an AppStore
rejection, since Apple no longer accepts new apps that use UIWebView.


Required Software
=
To build iOS apps with LiveCode you must have the appropriate versions of
Xcode as follows:

  - macOS 10.13.4: Xcode 10.1 - LiveCode builds iOS apps using the iOS 12.1
SDK
  - macOS 10.14.4: Xcode 11.3.x - LiveCode builds iOS apps using the iOS
13.2 SDK
  - macOS 10.15.2: Xcode 11.4.x - LiveCode builds iOS apps using the iOS
13.4 SDK

There is a full list of working LiveCode/macOS/Xcode combinations here:
https://livecode.com/docs/9-5-0/faq/faq/

Note: Whilst we endeavour to release updated versions of LiveCode
supporting the latest Xcode/iOS SDKs as quickly as possible; we strongly
recommend disabling automatic update of Xcode or downloading the specific
version of Xcode required directly from the Apple developer portal and
installing it separately.

Important: Since the end of April 2020, Apple is only accepting new apps
built using iOS13 SDKs. Updates to existing apps can be built using iOS12
SDKs until the end of June 2020. This means that, if you wish to submit new
apps to the AppStore, you will have to be running at least macOS 10.14 in
order to be able to install the necessary version of Xcode.
