using the map widget

2018-10-29 Thread Mike for GDC via use-livecode
I am trying to implement the map widget within my app.  I have entered my
api code in the inclusions and have looked at the example given in the
livecode article but so far it has not worked.  Does anyone have an example
of using it in an app?  What I want is to be able to retrieve the current
location (lat and long) and then use that to present

my map in the map widget.  I would have hoped it would be fairly straight
forward but I have never actually seen an example of script that works..  I
would appreciate any help anyone might have.

Thanks.  Mike

how to properly use the fullscreenmode and screen scaling

2018-10-27 Thread Mike for GDC via use-livecode
Hello,

 

I am new to LC and have learned much so far but I am having an issue with
the proper scaling of my app on different size screens.  I have created the
app with the dimensions of 913 w X 636 h.  All looks great on the desktop.

 

When I deploy it to my 8 inch Samsung Tab A (Android)  it is ok in the
Landscape mode, with one exception.  When I go to enter data, the keyboard
covers up some of the screen that I need to enter data.  It does not scroll
up to let me get

to the field of entry.  When it is in Portrait mode I can usually see the
field but the stack only takes up about half the screen so it is very small.
When I deploy it on the Samsung S8, it is even worse in that the entire
screen is not used and therefore

it is way too small to really use it.  I would hope there is a way to take
advantage of all the screen space so as the used has a larger screen to view
and enter data.It seems the keyboard is the same size and not scaled at
all.

 

Here are the script statements that I put in my "preopenstack" of my first
card:

 

set the fullscreenMode of this stack to "showAll"

put "portrait,portrait upside down,landscape left,landscape right" into
theallowed

-- Function Call

mobileSetAllowedOrientations theallowed

 

I have also used the "exactfit", "noborder" and "soScale" options but they 

any help with suggestions or example code of how it should work would be
greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Mike

map widget

2018-11-14 Thread Mike for GDC via use-livecode
Does anyone have an example of using the "map widget"?  I got my current
location of lat/long and now want to display it on a map.  I have set up my
api key but have not seen any example of how to implement the map..  what I
really want to do is to show my location and also any nearby restaurants,
gas stations nearby.   I have seen some livecode examples of this but not
the code of how to accomplish it.  Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks.

finding location on mobile device

2018-11-13 Thread Mike for GDC via use-livecode
I am trying to find my current lat/long on my android device.  I have played
around with multiple options including "mobileCurrentLocation" and others.
I have not been able to find an example of code that does it and works.
What I want to do is push a button, have the lat/long displayed so as I can
then "feed" it into a map widget for display.  Does anyone have an example
of code that does just that?  Thanks.  Mike

problem with mobileSetKeyboardType

2018-11-02 Thread Mike for GDC via use-livecode
I have not been able to get the "mobileSetKeyboardType" command to work on
my android.  I have tried various options, such as:

 

on openField

if the environment is "mobile" then

mobileSetKeyboardType "alphabet"

end if

end openField

 

and 

 

on mouseUp

if the environment is "mobile" then

mobileSetKeyboardType "alphabet"

end if

end mouseUp

 

Neither work.  All I get is the standard keyboard from the android.  

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks.

Mike

Using the Compass / GPS features of LC

2018-12-20 Thread Mike for GDC via use-livecode
Is anyone familiar with using LC to "guide" the user to a specific location.
For instance, if I have a marked and saved lat/long location, I want to have
the app show directions of how to return to the location after walking away
from it.  Not using google maps but instead using something like a "compass"
app to direct the user to the location while always pointing to the
destination.  Thanks.

Accuracy of Current Location in LC

2018-12-23 Thread Mike for GDC via use-livecode
I am using the "mobileCurrentLocation" command to capture my current
location on a mobile unit (android).  I have used the command,
'startTrackingSensor, "Location", false' command to start the sensor.

What I have found is that the lat/long that is being captured is not
accurate.  I have tested it against my Garmin GPS and a few other apps (on
the same mobile device) that capture the location.  They are basically all
the same and my LC version is off.

If I capture my location several times without moving at all, it reads a
different lat/long, not by much but it seems it should not fluctuate at all.
Does anyone know a technique or something that would make the reading more
accurate?

Thanks.

Map url in Browser Widget

2018-12-06 Thread Mike for GDC via use-livecode
I currently put the following URL into my browser widget and it works ok but
does anyone know what needs to be added to the code in order to place a
"marker" into the map location?  I want the user to see the exact location
of where they are located.  I get the Lat / Long from the
"mobilecurrentlocation" command.

 

This is what I generate now:

https://www.google.com/maps/@45.829321,-109.904418,10z

Thanks.

 

Mike

Browser Widget Problem in Android

2018-11-24 Thread Mike for GDC via use-livecode
I have put a map browser widget in my app.  When I load the URL and try to
display it in my android, I just get a blank screen.  Attached are my
standalone settings.  

The app works on my desktop but NOT on the Android.  The browser URL is set
correctly, it just does not display.  Any suggestions as to what might be
wrong?

DataGrid Scrolling problem

2019-10-02 Thread Mike for GDC via use-livecode
Hello,

 

I have a problem with a datagrid.   I cannot see the last couple of rows
when scrolling.  For instance if you have 100 lines and scroll to the bottom
of the grid you only get up to 98.  If you "hold" the scroll by forcing the
scroll to go to the bottom you can see lines 99 and 100 but because you are
holding the screen you cannot "select" either one of those lines.   When you
take your finger off the grid, the scroll immediately takes the last two
lines off the screen and you can just see up to line 98 again.   Hope this
description makes sense.

 

Thanks.

Mike
