SivaSiva shows/hides the status bar. Checking the launcher app settings, it
does have the status bar set to hidden. So based on that, just use the hidden
option and show the status bar as required while inside the app.

Thanks Jacque. Then that IS pretty confusing since the Standalone Application
Settings have a “Status Bar” setting and it appears to control the bar at the
top of the screen which is what I would expect to match up with the Status Bar
on iOS. I guess that will require a feature request… and
That looks interesting but I don’t think it mentioned
iPad, and even if they make it for iPad here is a
note they mentioned;
This will free up storage used by the app, but keep its documents and data.
Reinstalling the app will place back your data if the app is still available in
the App Store.
I think "status bar" may be a misnomer and it's referring to the three (or
two on Android 10) buttons that are always available at the bottom of the
screen. Those are the Back, Home, and (sometimes) the Recents buttons.
Virtually all Android devices use these "soft buttons" now.

Apple is pushing everything to be saved to iCloud, so a properly written school
app (by Apple standards!) would have all the school assignments in the
student’s iCloud - accessible at home or school or wherever you have net access.

On the iPad each app is sandboxed and that means each app has
its own Documents Folder. You can get a url to the Documents
Folder for your app but not other apps. Using that url you can
read, write, append, move, and delete files that are in your apps
Documents Folder. A BIG PROBLEM comes when
Once I close and remove from memory my template stack, I still see File
Selector in the Project Browser but nowhere else in the IDE so I’m not sure how
to remove it.
Even though I don’t create a standalone, the checkboxes for Macintosh, Windows,

I looked in my archives here but I can't find that post. I probably did

I seem able to hide or show the Android status bar using the radio button in

My workflow is not much different from Ralph's.
- edit in IDE, test in IDE
- upload to server using Coda 2 (which I also use to edit non-lc files).
- I don't use any of the LCserver specific features - no entangled
html, no includes, ... -
You can write to your own app’s preference’s folder.
Due to sandboxing Apple doesn’t want you writing
stuff elsewhere. You can sometimes write to special
folders, I don’t know the list off of the top of my head

I am getting a bit nearer answering my own question, or at least having it
answered by the mother ship. Elanor Buchanan has introduced me to
‘MergPopActivity’ but so far I am just too ignorant to use it. Hopefully I’ll
have more information soon. Meanwhile it would be interesting to know if

Since I upgraded to the latest Mac OS on my MacBook Pro, I have been getting
delays using various apps, like Safari. I use a mouse and keyboard connected
through a USB port. Sometimes when I get this delay, I quickly move to the
laptop’s trackpad and there seems to be no delay. I suspect
I use LC Server on the on-rev server. It is already setup and the support
from Heather/Robin is the best! I personally use regular standard issue
binary stacks for everything out of habit. These same stacks are also used
in my apps. This is what I love about LC server, it allows me to use
Thanks for the response, Ralph.
I've struggled to retain/regain my old local Sites, web server and LC Server on
my home Macs. So, I was thinking of embarking down the script-only stacks
route, using an on-rev LC-Server instance to do any web-services heavy-lifting
work server-to-server, on
It is my understanding that each app has it’s own storage are and that this is
sandboxed from other apps. That being said, there is obviously a way for an app
to request permission from the iOS to access another app’s storage. I’m not
sure if Livecode has that mechanism though. it’s probably
Just to confirm, my iMac was very unresponsive again, only this time I quit
Livecode, that took a couple minutes to completely quit, then my iMac became
responsive again. That doesn’t prove anything in itself. Something else may
have been leaking memory and quitting Livecode just
As a follow up... If you have a web server with LC installed running on your
local machine then just a ctrl S in the LC IDE will let you test your server
script(stack) immediately in the currently open IDE instance.
IDE alternatives to edit LC script only stacks are many. I use the Atom
I use the standard issue LC IDE to edit the server script, do a "Ctrl S" and
use either a web disk or VPN to drag the saved file to the server. Then I
test my web service in the currently opened IDE. Fast debug cycle.

What is the current state of the art regarding LiveCode server IDE - searching
around, this seems down to personal preference of text editor plus FTP?
I'm Mac-based and looking to experiment with web services.
