Special Paste

2020-05-28 Thread Charles Szasz via use-livecode
Both Apple's Pages and Microsoft’s Word software have key commands for pasting 
text into an existing document to match the current formatting (font). How do 
you script to accomplish this when copying text to the clipboard in a button so 
the user does not have to use keyboard commands?

LC 9.6.0 DP2

Mark,

I also been using AppWrapper.  It made notarizing Mac programs fairly easy to 
do once you set up app specific passwords and two step authentication in 
addition to certificates.

LC 9.6.0 DP2

2020-02-18 Thread Charles Szasz via use-livecode
Richard,

I have been a member of the LC community since roughly 2003.  I have not seen 
the notes on LC 9.6.0 DP2.  My main focus has been on updating my apps to 64 
bit Mac desktop apps and conquering notarizing my apps.  I was not concern and 
not surprised about Windows XP support. I will end my support for Windows XP at 
the end of June. I am still looking forward to creating 64 bit Windows apps.

Richard,

Thanks for your reply regarding Windows XP.  Currently I use LC 6.1.3 to build 
apps for Windows XP.  So this is not a problem.  I am using LC 9.6.0 to build 
Mac 64 bit desktop apps. I have not yet tried building Windows 64 bit apps for 
the other Windows variants.

Unable to install "altool"

2020-01-24 Thread Charles Szasz via use-livecode
For the past three days, I have been trying to install “altool”  for 
notarization.  I am using a Mac with High Sierra installed and LC 9.6.0 DP2.  I 
have Xcode 9.4.1 installed on my computer.  I have also set up a two step 
authentication with my Apple Developer Account and the required App-Specific 
Password for the app.

The notarization is for an app outside Apple App Store.

I renewed my AppWrapper 3 subscription but it will not notarized my 64 bit app 
due to the error message in Console:  unable to find utility “altool”  

I have tried the following commands in Terminalwhere all unsuccessful:


xcode-select-install
xcode-select -install
xcode-select -r

I read Matthias’ excellent lesson but there was no mention of how to install 
altool.

I hope someone has a solution for this.

Re: WordReport Help

2018-04-11 Thread Charles Szasz via use-livecode
Hi Phil,

Thanks for your input!  The data tag was working before this anomaly occurred.  
The text in the data tag is just regular text.  The font is Times New Roman.  
The text and formatting were not changed in the data tag.  I am hoping that 
someone who uses WordReport can give me insight on this problem. 

There are a few general rules in the WordReport for data tags but no 
suggestions to aid in resolving this type of problem.  Since WordReport uses 
brackets for the data tags, I am guessing that it is using merge in creating a 
Word document.  I never used merge in any of my projects.  So, this problem 
could be possibly related to merge. 

I paid Curry for the initial WordReport template.  Curry was very helpful in 
setting up the template for WordReport.  It worked on a consistent basis for a 
few days until yesterday.  I am thinking that Word for the Mac may be the 
culprit. I used Word for Mac in adding a data tag to the template.  But no 
other changes were made to the template. 

I am going to try Word for Windows today to see if this will fix the problem.  
Curry indicated that he does not think Word for the Mac is the problem, 
however.  But I am pretty sure Curry used Word for Windows in creating the data 
tags in the template.

I am having difficulty with a data tag in WordReport.  I am using LC 6.1.3. 

How do you keep a data tag from inserting an extra line after the data tag?   I 
have one data tag that keeps inserting an extra line before a non-data tag 
line.  The data tag has a cr immediately after it. When a Word document is 
created, the cr is moved to the next line creating an extra line.  I have look 
at formatting but cannot figure how to fix the problem.

Re: Screen Resolution for Desktop Apps

2017-12-18 Thread Charles Szasz via use-livecode
Jacqueline 

I am referring to the Hi-DPI scaling that was introduced in LC 6.5 that allows 
stacks to be automatically scaled to match the system display setting.  I am 
not using 6.5 but using 6.7.11 instead.  I am assuming that this works with the 
user's setting when they use your app. 

I set most of my desktop apps to a minimum of a 1280x768 screen resolution in 
order to launch and run my apps. I had some Windows 10 users complained of not 
being able to run my apps although their screen resolution is higher than the 
required 1280x768.  In the past I had recommended that they adjust their 
ClearType font setting to resolve this problem.

I think that the Hi-DPI scaling is responsible for this problem. This is why I 
thought THAT using LC 6.9.11 the Hi-DPI scaling might resolve this problem.  
What do you think is the best way to resolve this problem?

Interesting stats! Thanks for sharing!  I set the screen resolution. Some of my 
users have small laptops which are limited to a vertical resolution of 768. 
Recently I have been setting required resolution to 1280x768 to accommodate 
them.  

So, my question about screen resolution for your apps is a vital question.

Windows 10 Screen resolution problem

2017-03-12 Thread Charles Szasz via use-livecode
I posted the following year but never received a solution:

An user reported seeing a screen resolution dialog in one of my programs that 
requests a screen resolution of 1024x768 be used. The problem is that  the user 
reportedly is using a screen resolution of 1920x1080.   She is using Windows 
10. 

I am using LC 6.1.2 and use the following code in my app stack: 

on checkForScreenSize 

   IF the platform is "win32" 
   then 
  if item 3 of the screenRect < 1024 or item 4 of the screenRect < 768 then 
 answer error "The Assistant software requires a minimum 1024x768 
screen resolution. Please check your Control Panel." with "OK" 
 quit 
  end if 
   end if 

   if the platform = "MacOS" 
   then 
  if item 3 of the screenRect < 1024 or item 4 of the screenRect < 768 then 
 answer error "The Assistant software requires a minimum 1024x768 
screen resolution. Please check your Display Preferences." with "OK" 
 quit 
  end if 
   end if 
  
end checkForScreenSize 

Has anybody encountered this problem with Windows 10?
