Re: HTTPD Server Post Requests work ........about half the time

2018-05-07 Thread Andre Garzia via use-livecode
Remember that LC is using a single thread and that script execution is blocking, so, if your server is busy doing work to respond to a request, then it will probably not acknowledge an incoming request at the same time. Or at least that was true for my RevHTTPd version... On Mon, May 7, 2018 at

Monte, The problem is that no web api expects an object with numeric keys, it expects an honest, real, array. The fact that LC arrays are actually hashmaps is awesome, I love them as well, but it still makes it impossible to export arrays from LC which are really common on Web APIs. JSONExport

I use LC 9 on a Surface Pro 4 Machine, it is almost unusable. Everything is as slow as molasses. Typing a script sometimes takes many seconds to respond and it even goes as far as missing keystrokes. Trying to drag and drop stuff onto the stack is also horrible. I don't have any plugins anymore,

Hi Friends, This is a bit of a rant because I can't believe no one stopped by these kind of problems before. First of all, the JS Handlers for a browser widget are one way only. There is no way to call a LiveCode function from JS and actually see a response. You need to code two JS functions,
