Windows shell command with path

2020-11-18 Thread Bill Vlahos via use-livecode
I want to issue a command line prompt to a program in “Program Files 
(x86)\AppFolder\MyApp”.

When I go to the command line my path is already “C:\Windows\System32> which is 
too deep. I have to cd .. twice to get to Program Files (x86)\etc.

If I issue the shell command to “C:\Program Files (x86)\etc. it can’t find the 
path.

How can I issue the shell command to an application in the Program Files 
(x86)\AppFolder\MyApp”?

Thanks,
Bill

Hello Devin,

A rough guess is that she is on Big Sur. There is a known issue where
colorization is lost if the default font (Source Code Pro) is used. If this
is the case, she can try switching to a different font, and the issue will
be fixed.

Kind regards,
Panos

It  seems there is a new release of Source Code Pro that removes an 
experimental offending "SVG table with colored glyphs" from the font that 
causes the problem on Big Sur.

https://github.com/adobe-fonts/source-code-pro/releases/tag/2.032R-ro%2F1.052R-it%2F1.012R-VAR

The discussiion of the problem is here

Script colorization not working

2020-11-18 Thread Devin Asay via use-livecode
Hi all,

One of my students is having a problem where the script colorization is not 
working completely. That is, the bold face style is applied for things like 
**on** mouseUp and **end** mouseUp, and commands are boldfaced. But nothing 
else is colorized.

We have checked all of her script editor preferences. Colorization is set to 
default.

There is nothing in the script editor menu that would affect this as far as I 
can tell. 

My student likes script colorization and finds it very helpful, so she’s 
anxious to get it fixed.

Has anyone ever seen this? Any suggestions for how to fix it?

She’s on Mac, probably Catalina, LiveCode Community 9.6.1.

I tested on a VM too, but on Parallels, not on VirtualBox.

If Quicktime cannot open the video either, then it sounds like a VM issue.
It would be great if anyone running Big Sur natively could give some input.

Re: PDF Manipulation was Design Question

2020-11-18 Thread Bob Sneidar via use-livecode
If you are talking about form data, there IS a way to configure a PDF so that 
it reads a data file contains just form data and populates with the new data. 
This works with Mac and Windows, and I assume with Linux, but the caveat is 
that the PDF has to be configured to do this first.

The format is not difficult to grok. I use it in my Forms Generator app 
extensively to fill blank forms with data from an SQL server. I have handlers 
for reading and creating these files (they end in .fdf). It get’s a little more 
difficult to understand when dealing with things like check boxes and radio 
buttons, and especially tables. For instance the two default values for a 
checkbox (unless you modify the checkbox object in the PDF) is false and yes.

My application has an interface for importing a pre-existing fillable form 
(preconfigured to read the pdf file of course), creating relationships between 
the database columns and the form objects, and saving those relationships along 
with the binary data to recreate the pdf on demand, in the SQL database.

Is that what you need?

Re: Big Sur bugs

No, however, I am running Big Sur in a Virtual Box VM under macOS 
Mojave. All other Big Sur features and functions appear to work fine in 
the VM (we just can not afford Apple hardware for every version of their 
OS from Mavericks to Big Sur. VM's are a lot more versatile as they can 
be clones, snapshotted, and restored when things get messed up)


If I try to just double click on the video under Big Sure, it opens the 
Quicktime Player (?) and I get a "unknown error occurred (-101).


I am glad to hear it is working for you Panos - very glad. Both our 
commercial apps depend on the player object and I was in a panic! I'd 
ask anyone following this thread to please take time to test media under 
Big Sur.


I would be ecstatic to learn in is a VM issue. We'll then move to our 
backup of installing on a partition for a dual (actually more than dual 
as we have about 5 version of macOS each on its own partition) boot system.

Short answer, no. Long answer, it depends. On a Macintosh, AppleScript can be 
used to manipulate form objects, but as far as the actual “burned in” content, 
I do not think so. This is on purpose, as if this were possible, PDFs could not 
be secure. Also if the PDF has been secured, nothing can modify it.

On a PC, there are libraries for C++ and Java that allow manipulation of PDFs, 
again dependent on the PDFs own security settings.

In either case, Acrobat has certain security features built in, so that some 
things cannot be modified by an API if it does not have the proper security 
context. It is kind of like variable scoping, but from a security point of 
view. That may not be a great analogy, but to get more info read the Javascript 
API to learn what I am talking about.

I thought about getting around to making something that would do that

Livecode it would have some advantages. Namely it would be easier to

So here I am having assumed that Livecode is not a tool that could
do what I want but now asking can I use it to automate editing text in a
PDF file?



The edits are simple, BTW. I work at an airport and it would just need
to replace a flight number with the flight number and code next to it.
The code is always the same for a particular route.

So for example, if the incoming PDF has the text "WS252" on it I would
want it changed to "WS252 LV". Each file would have 20-30 flights to
change like this.

Thanks.

Re: Design Question

2020-11-18 Thread Bob Sneidar via use-livecode
Does your stack auto-save anything at any time? If power fails during a save 
operation, there will be another stack file of the same name preceded by a 
tilde (~). Deleting the tilde will restore the prior version of the stack file.

Sometimes a power outage can damage the partition of the HDD. I would have UPS 
backups on all the systems you deem critical, and check these UPS systems every 
three months or replace them outright every three years (typical life 
expectancy of a lead acid battery).

Hi,

I had 70 PS POS systems in the field and I saved the  list of items and
other info  after each addition it worked 99.9% of the time. But when it
failed (4 or 5  times a year) usually the same
customer (same hardware same windows 7 )I had to log in and copy a blank
livecode stack. In the end I had to save the info in the Sqlite database -
No problems since.

The stackfile never seemed to damage because of a power failure/outage or
anything - but had a greater chance if that was the case. The funny thing
was if you did switch the power off  off
without doing a proper shutdown there was no damage 99.9% of the time.
Never did get to the bottom of it.

Re: Suspend in iOS, or when is a mobile app running?

2020-11-18 Thread Graham Samuel via use-livecode
Thanks to all who replied on this topic - lots of this is new to me! So far, 
for me the big thing missing is how to **force** iOS to continue sending 
messages to the app in the background, or alternatively force iOS itself to ask 
the user the question when the app calls for location data for the first time. 
Although I have set the ‘experimental’  setting of Location Authorization Type 
to ‘Always' in my Sstandalone Application Settings, this  does not seem either 
to ensure access nor to force the message. Maybe wading around in the iOS SDK 
documentation will help, though somehow I doubt it.

To repeat myself, I have noticed that the following apps which I have used 
personally, don’t seem to get the OS to ask a question of the user, and yet 
they unfailingly continue to process the equivalent of locationChanged messages 
from the GPS when they’re in the background:

Strava
SityTrail
TomTom GO
GB & Parks

and presumably Google Maps and Apple’s own Maps.

They appear to run (i.e execute code, not just sit in RAM) while in the 
background.I just don’t know how they do it so consistently. 

It’s frustrating to try to solve a problem that’s obviously been solved many 
times before, but just happens not to be in the public domain. I am not sure I 
will live long enough to come out the other side of all this (I’m including the 
issue of tracking a route taking into account GPS inaccuracies and anomalies), 
but if I do, I’ll write it up.
