### Re: Contesting for Idiot du Jour

Me again Jerry Changed the setup so that the pellets landing outside the big circle were ignored and just kept going until I had 1000 within the circles in a completely random pattern without Trig. Now the ratio in the smaller circle is 25% or ¼ like the area comparison would suggest. You do

### Re: Contesting for Idiot du Jour

Hi Jerry I just tried that because I’m no math wizard and need to see things. When shooting a random shotgun blast of 1000 pellets into the centre of a target square that contained the large circle and small circles, the ratio worked out to around 0.2 - not 0.25. It seems the corners outside

### Re: Contesting for Idiot du Jour

Additional thought: If you just used random x and y, then ignored points outside the larger circle, you would see that 1/4 of the points would be in the smaller circle. No trig or integrals involved. .Jerry > On Sep 2, 2020, at 8:27 PM, Jerry Jensen via use-livecode > wrote: > > 1/2 is the

### Re: Contesting for Idiot du Jour

1/2 is the right answer. Take your drawing of the circles. Cut a veyy thin radial slice from the center to the outside circle. So thin that it is just a line. Now think of how likely a random point on that line will be in the part of the line that was in the smaller circle. The part that

### Contesting for Idiot du Jour

Your chance to be Genius du Jour: If I construct 2 concentric circles, one being half the radius of the larger, then simple math shows that the smaller circle has an area ¼ the area of the larger. Now if I generate a random point within the radius of the larger circle, I should expect that the

Hi David, Yes, I did have this working on iOS. ... unfortunately that's all I've got to offer! It's a couple of years since I worked on this project, and it was an internal app only - not distributed to the app store. I'm actually currently disbarred from testing apps on iOS - my current

David, Nope you have to sort them NUMERIC. As you said this is the only way I know of. I do this all the time. I don't know of any other way. put the keys of tMyArray into tKeys sort lines of tKeys numeric repeat for each line tKey in tKeys -- do what you want with tMyArray[tKey] -- this line

### Re: Looping though a numerically indexed array

As long as the array is indexed starting at 1 with no gaps it should work by looping for each element. I just did a quick test to confirm. I built a 100 element array and it looped in order. I deleted 2 keys and then it didn’t. I then added those 2 missing keys back and it worked again.

### Looping though a numerically indexed array

I’m pretty sure there must be a way to efficiently loop through numerically indexed arrays Repeat for each key and repeat for each element does not seem to sort the keys in numeric order,. Of course I can get the keys and sort them before repeating - but is there a more efficient way?

Hi Bob, Goes to show how important user research is. For me personally, I want to get Navigator out of the way entirely when I minimize it. It's trivial to have a preference to make it minimize in place. But also: I went to some length to have it avoid minimizing behind/on top of (don't remember
