Big Sur bugs

2020-10-08 Thread Marty Knapp via use-livecode
In my testing of LC apps running under Big Sur I have run into the following bugs running LC 9.6.1: 1) Tabbed buttons: The background of the highlighted tab is now white by default. Since LC renders the text for the highlighted button as white, it is not readable until you switch to another

Big Sur hangs when printing

I just installed the latest beta of Big Sur and if you attempt to print from LC (either in the IDE or a Mac standalone) it will hang, requiring a force quit. It was working OK in the previous beta. I’ve had several customers report the same issue. This is making me really nervous as I would

You can have more than one version of Xcode on your system. You can install a more recent version as not to get that error message and still build against a previous version. When I say "install" I mean download from the Apple dev site. I don’t even have an xcode version in the Applications

Ralph, thanks - it worked! I was taking the error messages too seriously. They say “the current device configuration is unsupported. This phone is running iOS 14.0.1… “. Enough to stop me in my tracks. Thanks so much for that. Graham > On 8 Oct 2020, at 19:44, Ralph DiMola via use-livecode >

Untested, but try this: on keyboardActivated select text of fld end keyboardActivated If you get a selection flash when it sets twice, remove the command from the openField handler. -- Jacqueline Landman Gay | jac...@hyperactivesw.com HyperActive Software | http://www.hyperactivesw.com On

Graham. Ah, I see now. This is not an issue at all in ordinary LC, as you certainly know. What happens if you select the text twice in a row? Craig -Original Message- From: "Graham Samuel via use-livecode" Sent: Thursday, October 8, 2020 11:36am To: "How to use LiveCode" Cc:

I’ve come back to an iOS app that I left for a time, before the advent of iOS 14. My beta version works very nicely in the Simulator available in Xcode 11.5, which I understand is the one LC9.6.1 expects one to have. I’m simulating an iPhone XS, largely because I’ve got one of thos,e so it

Thanks Craig. Somehow the return characters didn’t arrive in my email, but of course I understand what you mean. But this would simply empty the field, wouldn’t it, whereas I want the user to see the text that was there before, selected. I thought that was what the ’select’ command for text
