About box equivalent for mobile apps?

2020-05-22 Thread Graham Samuel via use-livecode
In desktop apps, at least on the Mac, one has an “About” box where you can put acknowledgements of the use of copyright material and any other info like the version number of the app. There isn’t such a provision in a mobile app, is there? Is there any convention for this that I’ve missed, or

Changing text properties in a field via the IDE

I’m using LC 9.6.0 rc1 on a Mac. Just now I did something very simple that didn’t work. I created a label field, opened the Property Inspector for the field and changed its text - that worked. Then I attempted to change the font size - that didn’t work. The appearance of the label in the stack

There is a consistent tale (more than a rumour, I think) that Catalina can mess up some people's mail messages, if you use Apple Mail. Did that affect you? It’s the thing about Catalina that scares me most - after all, we’ve had lots of warning about 32 bit apps. Graham > On 17 May 2020, at

I see that the iOS Standalone Settings have changed in this version, no doubt to accommodate Apple’s new rules. One is required to provide six images as “Launch Images” under the “Splash” tab. It seems that there’s an image, a 2x image and a 3x image, and then another three for dark mode.

I set this hare running initially. I really do think there is a bug, because the thing works when stepped through but not if it’s allowed to run without interruption. In the stepped-through activity it’s easy to see that tMins does have a value. In my example it’s 31, or maybe it’s a string of
