This issue also confused me recently when I was making an app for my own use.
It seems like an idiosyncrasy to me, even tho a pretty minor one that could be
mentioned in the dictionary.

This alarms me.
In my app, I write a file to specialFolderpath(“desktop”).
What are the conditions to make this work on Apple or Windows standalones?

I thought that if you set up beta testers, with the id of the device an app
would be run on, others could run your app as a beta tester. But, perhaps,you
need an apple license to do even that?

That sounds pretty interesting.
Wouldn’t that be doable by creating a splash stack the looked for a stack to
launch in its folder. That stack would be the app. But I don’t know if a
stand-alone compiled splash stack could call and run a raw xxx.livecode stack.

I know, I don’t think I’m using the remote debugger. I’m building a standalone
app for the computer I’m developing on, so I wouldn’t need the remote debugger.
I have some code that is never called...I wonder if that could cause problems.
Of course, that is the situation for libs, so I

Great to hear Andre’s input!
One point I hoped to make is that there is also a possibility of monetizing a
help site that is created outside the mothership but coordinates and supports
it. I think this kind of resource would be a significant investment and it is
unrealistic to expect that the

Brian and Ralph,
Thanks. I gave up because there are easier, more obvious ways to do what I
want. Several posts have mentioned shortcomings in the segmented control widget
and I think if it would respond to mousedown and mouseup messages, it would be
easier to use in more situations, as well.
Thanks for your perspective. Frankly, I don’t think it will be particularly
easy to make it an app either. I need to do a fair bit of code optimization and
on the map, there will have to be a small magnifier that moves with the finger.
In the meantime, the desktop version is coming

Hmm, it could be venturing into a swamp for me, tho. Given the popularity of
Chromebooks, it would be great if Livecode could be invested in support for
them. In my own case, I need to be cautious about where I spend my effort. I’m

I wonder if you used http without ssl, but did 256 bit encryption and

Yes, I realize that. However, when I first created the button, on the source
card, I expected that the text size and font would be what was displayed in the

displays the actual properties of the object.
