Re: 9.6.0 simulator issue

an alternative is, create a standalone.

Drag the standalone file you created to the emulator

That is being really rigorous about it, but sometimes I have found if that the

when I do the above and so far (knock on wood) it has always got things going

Re: LiveCode DataGrid assistance requested

2021-05-04 Thread JeeJeeStudio via use-livecode

Hi Brian,


if you are using LC9.x.x then it is an Datagrid2 automatically. I don't 
know the exact lc version as of.


Make sure that you have the data item which you want to display in a 
variable first and put that in a test field or answer it, just to check 
if that is the data you need.


There are lot's of examples on the forum on how to get the desired data 
into the DG, and perhaps it's easier to put a piece of your script over 
there so people can see what you doing.


But you can also post here.

So convert JSON to LC array, then get the item into a variable. Set the 
DGdata to the variable.


In other words, test step by step what you have.


Op 4-5-2021 om 17:26 schreef Brian K. Duck via use-livecode:

Hello listers...

I’m working on an app that pulls data from a API which returns JSON and is 
converted to an array then displayed in a DataGrid.

The data returned is complex JSON, there are a few rows that are name value 
pairs, but most of the highest level rows are arrays, and there are those that 
are arrays of arrays (of arrays).

After adding  “Combine array using return,” I can display it as text in a 
field, but I only get the rows that aren’t array data on their own. So, most of 
the data is lost.

There are challenges, so I have questions….
How best to convert nested arrays to text for displaying the data within a 
field?

And, I’d like to display certain values from the DataGrid in a text field, like 
the name attribute, a URL…. The data may be in a different position, for 
different results, but the structures are consistant. Some data are attributes 
of a key value, some are the key values.
What is the best way to traverse the data to find specific values?

Also, should I be looking at the datagrid, array, or JSON for the source of 
these fields?

The current goal is an MVP where I’m displaying data, but the larger goal is 
building an editor to start with the minimal data and allow editing, publising 
as files, and further down the road submission to and API service for posting. 
So, guidance on the design with evolution in mind is much appreciated.

Also, there is a need to count elements in the array of arrays. The examples I 
see are oversimplified and don’t sow any details on finding data in array 
within an array.

Is there an example, or reference, that I missed?

Also, how can I tell if I’m working with a DataGrid or instance of DataGrid 2?

Thanks for your bandwidth,

Brian

Re: PDF Widget

2021-04-25 Thread JeeJeeStudio via use-livecode

hhhmmm, yes, sorry let me refrase that

What I did is download the pdf then opened an external browser, and as 
soon the browser was closed it went back to the app.


Don't know exactly anymore why I did not use the browser widget, so I 
was remembering it wrong. But probably because displaying a pDF sucks 
Big TIme on Android within LC using Indy that time.


(just like our prime minister, he remembers nothing and has no 
recollection of it or remembered it wrong :) )


If it helps, what I did was:

local tFile, tHier, tHeaders,tResult
on mouseUp
   tsNetInit
   if the environment is "mobile" then --ok for Android and iOS
  set the defaultFolder to specialFolderPath("documents")
  put specialFolderPath("documents") & "/help.pdf" into tHier
   end if
   put tsNetGetFile("1", tHier, 
"https://www.somewebpage.nl/folder/help.pdf;, tHeaders, 
"transferComplete") into tResult

end mouseUp

on helpdownloaded
   if the environment is "mobile" then --ok for Android and iOS
  put specialFolderPath("documents") & "/help.pdf" into tFile
   end if
   if there is a file tFile then
  if the platform is "android" then
 mobileToast "Help file is gedownload", "short"
  --this works OK with external browser on Android--downloaden en

on transferComplete pID, pResult, pBytes, pCurlCode

   --answer tsNetGetStatus("1")
   if pCurlCode is not 0 then
  answer tsNetRetrError(pID)
   --else

There are no permission settings to control vibration. The phone is

I’m just excited to increase my earning potential by 15% in 6 months at the 2

After having a paid app in the stores for a few years I just released my first

As a print device specialist, I can tell you that printing directly from a web

For those who haven't read Mark's helpful workaround, from his comment 
there:


   If you print to pdf, copy and rename that pdf file into
   the /tmp directory, then you can print it to the printer
   because the print command invokes lp properly.


Thanks, Mark. That's more or less what I'm doing now, though manually.

I can work around most of the limitations each time another wheel 
falls off the LC Linux engine.


So I'm okay. I'm more concerned the other tens of millions of desktop 
Linux users who may not stumble across this workaround and get a poor 
impression of what LiveCode can do for themselves and the orgs they run.

Mandatory for new Andorid apps on Play

2021-02-26 Thread JeeJeeStudio via use-livecode
For users of android some needed changes are mandatory, perhaps these 
should again be updated in LC:




Upcoming Google Play and Android deadlines
Updated Real-Money Gambling, Games, and Contests policy

On March 1, we’re expanding the number of countries where you can 
publish licensed real-money gambling apps and introducing new 
requirements for gamified loyalty programs.


Approval required for background location access

If your app uses location in the background, start the approval process 
by completing the permissions declaration from the App content page 
(Policy > App content) in Google Play Console.


New apps submitted after April 16, 2020 need approval to access 
background location. Apps published before April 16, 2020 need approval 
by March 29.


August 2021:

New apps must target at least Android 11 (API level 30). 
<-IMPORTANT
New apps and games must publish with the Android App Bundle. 
<---IMPORTANT

New apps using Play Billing must use Billing Library version 3 or newer.

Re: LC Roadmap

2021-02-13 Thread JeeJeeStudio via use-livecode

That's why I quit after one year subscription.

I like Livecode a lot, but it has it's limitations, lot of bugs are not 
solved.


Feature requests not implemented although asked by many.

Livecode is great! Don't misunderstand and it learns a lot of people to 
program. But it runs behind future facts.


While other platforms implement dozens of easy things which you can easy 
access, you'll have to hope it will be implemented.


And the same is offered for free. Maybe takes some more effort to learn.

HTML5 is a drag in LC, unusable, to play ok, to really use no way.. 
Better learn html yourself and use PHP or LC-server if you like, and it 
will take about the same amount of time to create it. And have real fast 
loading of your webpage. Visitors are not going to wait so long until 
it's loaded. Maybe ok for internal use on Intranet, but as user then i 
would be even frustrated of the loading times.


So i now made a webpage in PHP/HTML, a bit javascript and Mysql, it's 
for internal use at a company. All info I need I can find online.


And next to it I'm learning Flutter platform with Dart as main language, 
it's free, it's the future, many devs are going that way.


It supports Android, iOs, web and even building an executable for 
Windows is on it's way.


Costs: time.



Next to this, I also do not understand those dozens of emails I get 
begging for money to buy them tickets to New York.


What would that help the language forward except some awareness of that 
it exists?


Thousands of people loose their jobs these days with this Corona shit, 
many companies (read at least 50%) in Netherlands get support money from 
the government to stay alive and else they are broke. Due to all the 
lockdowns.


And here LC is begging for ticket money, I don't see the logic.

And I can print from any other app on the same machine, just not LC.

This report for Linux Mint seems perhaps relevant:

But it's from nearly three years ago - has printing been completely broken in

Naturally, right after I post this, Apple makes headlines (again) for 
doing something arbitrary and rather dim.


So an ethical and professional disclaimer:

I don't support self-contradictory and illogical policy,
any more than self-contradictory and illogical UI.

Shallow thinkers (and toddlers of all ages) focus mainly on external 
agreement. It requires some mental development to realize a need for 
intellectual consistency and indeed honesty.


I like the way this principle is clear in the realm of coding. If true 
is also false, logic falls apart. Every logical branch in a script 
evaluates to true or false. True and false must be reliable, not 
arbitrary and capricious. Otherwise code would be unpredictable.


(That's why people who rationalize have trouble writing good code: 
they are speaking a second language, and have trained themselves to 
imitate logic rather than following it! Mental habits matter.)


Apple's biz practices make it difficult to avoid finally replacing my 
2012 Mac, but as most people here probably know, I did not intend my 
statement as an endorsement. Glad Richmond can still work on the G5! :)

Re: Threads in LC

2021-01-08 Thread JeeJeeStudio via use-livecode
Not that I know of. When using LC it uses the GPIO library/api from the 
Master Library in which it was embedded. If I recall correct that uses 
access to the GPIO library which is on the Raspberry.


For this i can't recall if i needed to install something via terminal, 
which i needed to do for use with Python.


It just uses LC script, no LCB. So therefore my unknown wissdom about 
multi-threading / multi-core thought simplistic that one core could do 
the gui (would be more GPU then) and one core the GPIO handling. But you 
see my knowledge about it is minor.


Of course i could also just use Python without GUI and ask for some 
input setting from the user, if in the end a Python GUI might also be to 
heavy (read interference from any mouse movements).


For the beginning i have Start and stop buttons running in SimplePyGui , 
it needs input for how many steps, speed and size of the steps and how 
much it has to be repeated.

Maybe.

Does your Pi_gpio_output function use file I/O calls to the virtual 
file system in /run, or call an LCB or external using a lower-level 
interface for GPIO?

Re: Threads in LC

2021-01-07 Thread JeeJeeStudio via use-livecode
For what i've seen and read is that one can run functions in their own 
thread, so you assign a thread to it.


I'm not very experienced in Python, but that is what i read and i found 
it interesting. (slowly progressing the motor project with simplepygui 
and the GPIO)


https://www.tutorialspoint.com/python/python_multithreading.htm

https://realpython.com/intro-to-python-threading/

Perhaps it is another way of calling it parallel and am i 
misinterpreting it as assigning stuff to another core.


So what i actually meant is multiprocessing, would that give advantage?

Both Python and LiveCode are single-threaded.

IIRC, Python offers parallelism as a programming style, but unless 
you're using one of the special builds I don't believe it offers true 
concurrency (though both can handle concurrent tasks through 
multiprocessing).


This may be helpful here: how would you approach this in Python?

I wonder if we can tailor an LC approach to more closely resemble it, 
or at very least arrive at a language feature proposal to give us 
parallelism within a single-thread like Python does.

Hi Jerry,

1 millisecond is probably asking too much of LC.
It doesn’t give an LC processor enough time to do
much of anything else and I can see why just
moving the mouse would affect the speed of the
motor.  I’m assuming that what you really want
is a steady rate for the motor rather than a
variable one.

Try some experiments with increasing the amount
of time in-between motor steps if you can.  You may
find a balance somewhere that is acceptable.

I also found this comparison of Banana Pi Vs. Raspberry Pi 3
which you may also find useful.

Good luck!

I think I tried it once with send in time, not a succes. So maybe i have to 
rewrite that with a different mindsetting. I don't have all stack with me at 
the moment.

The above piece is from an older stack, but the last is similar.

Also the wait shall not be the most convenient wait to handle this.

It also has of course an counterClockwise handler which is similar, but then 
output 20 is a 1.

it should run for so many steps, then wait a few seconds and then return. If 
there is one position. If there are more positions, it should go to those 
positions too with eqaul steps, then wait on each position, then return those 
same positions to the start.

It all works, but due to the single thread, moving the mouse, it interferes. So 
in fact LC is to heavy for a single thread. Guess we would win speed if we got 
multi-thread. Not just for Raspberry.

Then there is still max LC7.0 for Rasp, so a port to that should also be made.

Thanks.

I will take what steps I can to preserve his legacy of HTML5 examples. As these

for the benefit of the LiveCode Community.

LiveCode HTML5 didn't always meet his expectations or progress as fast as he 
wanted it to and I do wish he could have seen our next planned release, where 
HTML5 support will be a focus. He was of great benefit to this community and 
shared his expertise freely.

I'm not sure what else I can say. Rest in peace hh, you will be missed :(

That’s fine :) It’s kind of related to the general subject of community
contribution. My understanding is that the general approach to that has not
helped produce an organised collection of material - whether this is the
documentation, or the library of Livecode components. There is the usual
tension between centralised quality control and wiki like easy open
community contribution.

I agree with Sean that we can all contribute to this, but a little
improvement in the architecture that supports such collaboration would also
help I believe. It is harder than I think necessary to find stacks and code
related to for instance podcasts and RSS feeds. I’m pretty sure that this
has been worked on multiple times over the last 10 years, but the
combination of forum, email, and resource library does not do justice to
what we could achieve.

Maybe I’m wrong - and no one has produced a podcast player in Livecode? My
understanding is that an easy to contribute set of tools that made it
easier to share stacks and code would help here. As I see it the attempts
that have been made historically have been somewhat too “closed” for there
to the right sort of community contribution.

I can mainly speak for my personal experience, but if I produce this
podcast player, and various libraries for it - then historically I haven't
really see a good way to share that. When I come across errors or
improvements I want to make to the dictionary I don’t really see how, or
have quite enough faith that my contributions will valued - so I make a
note to “do that later” and well - don’t.

There is a form of federated architecture for user contributions that
looks promising that can help. Essentially the trick is to combine both
that ability of people to make their own personal notes / changes and
contributions by forking existing material, while also making it very easy
to combine these contributions into an editorial synopsis. That way each
Livecode author wold have a tool for their own personal productivity use,
and the overall community gets the value of the shared content production.
Right now the balance between my personal space and the sharing is in an
unhealthy state of mediation.

So in fact it needs to retrieve a list of podcast streams, user can pick a
stream, and then it has to play like an mp3 player. Can be done with either
the browser or audio player right?

Re: Android PlayStore Warning APK v1 signature scheme

2020-10-14 Thread JeeJeeStudio via use-livecode
Good question. I'm not 100% sure, but if I'm correct you can update. So I
don't think the keypair will change. I've not had the error you have, and
I've updated with lc961 which uses the correct target. So i made the normal
keystore and did the thing as in the previous mail and had no problems as
far as i know. Only thing is lc accepts only .keystore. Most probably as
long the reversed dns name com.appname.blabla is not changed and you
increase the version nr, also when an app is wrong or declined, then it
should go ok.

I think you need to use PKCS12 industry standard format instead of the
normal keystore. You can import your existing key via command prompt.
Keytool -importkeystore -srckeystore yourapp.keystore -destkeystore
yourapp.keystore -deststoretype pkcs12

Re: DataGrid 2 swipe actions

you have to check the bug quality site for that and search for the DG2
I know there was a fix for the ID thingy, if i understand correctly what

because if i remember correct the ID created by the dg scroller was not

But to be sure on it check the quality site or one of the releasenotes when

Re: Layers in PBrowser

Maybe switch over in time to ReactNative and Node.js using JavaScript?

I'm exploring these, cause it runs also on muliple platform, though 
there we're not as spoiled as with Livecode, but I guess most things are 
in your own hand then.


First thing i see is the almost instantly change you get to see on for 
example the Android Emulator. So it's more a website which one writes 
and runs almost everywhere with some extra functions.


Well a lot to learun for me (don't want to hijack this thread but maybe 
as an alternative, cause i saw on your website you do also JavaScript)

Put this in every stack you build, and i mean the "build close issue" part
in the on closeStack Handler

It was in one of the release notes.

Maybe that is holding your build to complete



on shutdownRequest
   answer question "Are you sure you want to stop?" with "Y" or "N"
   if it is "Y" then
  pass shutdownRequest
   end if
end shutdownRequest

on closeStack
   -build close issue--
   if the environment is "development" and \
 there is a stack "revStandaloneProgress" and \
 the mode of stack "revStandaloneProgress" > 0 then
  exit closeStack
   end if
   ---
   lock messages
   quit --triggers shutdownrequestmessage, if not handled then it hangs
   pass closeStack

Facturing/Billing Warning Google Play dev console when using Android 8.0 as minimum version

2020-08-07 Thread JeeJeeStudio via use-livecode

Hi,


i got a warning uploading an app update which uses minimum Android 
Version 8.0 Oreo about facturing rights, it does not use facturing.


Also in the standalone settings in-App Purchases is not selected.

Uploading an other app with minimum Android version 5.0 i do not get 
that warning.


Both standalones are build with LC961rc2.

What could cause this?

Do i have to add something in the Android sdk's?

This is the error in Dutch:


   Waarschuwingen

Je hebt een APK of Android App Bundle geüpload zonder de rechten voor 
FACTURERING of met de rechten voor FACTURERING die is beperkt tot 
specifieke SDK-versies. De rechten voor FACTURERING zijn vereist voor de

Translated in English:

Warnings

You uploaded an APK or Android App Bundle without the BILLING rights or 
with the BILLING rights limited to specific SDK versions. BILLING rights 
are required for the sale of in-app products.



Thanks!

You can set which keyboard you want, like email, numeric

In the iOS app I’m developing, it would be nice (I mean less confusing for the 
user) to display a keyboard with only certain keys - numerals and certain other

"Apple has now even gone so far as to ban apps from the App Store if 
they refuse to offer in-app purchases for paid features that are

i think no one, because it's not working and no longer supported in LC.

Why do so many app dev(non LC) use so many ads in their apps? i guess not
for fun but for some income (free apps with ads)

A free game and i mean a good playable quality game costs maybe 200K to be

I've seen prices asked for apps around 15K just for Android and another 15k

Maybe prices dropped meanwhile, but some softwarehouses ask serious prices

And alongside that sometimes also in-app purchases, like more lives or 
whatever, but that's another story.

Paying for an app is the way to get rid of the ads.

The nr of ad-free free to use apps, is very low compared to free in-app 
ads apps.


You can simply check the playstore for that.

Re: Google Play SDK problem

Well 2 things:

1. Since LC is no longer supporting ads, with which one might earn an extra
dime, they could better remove it. Maybe via lcb and an injection in the
manifest something is possible and one could choose it's own preferable ads
provider.

2. You can reply to the email from Google and then you will get an answer
which gives you a clue or leaves you with more questions.

Ok 3 things.
3. I had it once too, first my app was allowed for the family, and later
after an update it was no longer. And i got tired of it so i canceled the
lower ages and for family. And it was a simple app just telling the time an
date updated with speech. No data was pulled, no ads, no internet needed.

Kind regards,
Jerry

Android target needs api-29 as of august 2020

2020-07-25 Thread JeeJeeStudio via use-livecode

Hi,

FYI

for the people who use the Google Play Developers Console.

The target api needs to be 29 as of August 2020 for all new apps.

And for updated apps as of november 2020.


LC has the target now set on 28.

It would be convenient if one could set that him/her-self in the 
standalone settings.


Regards,

Jerry

Re: Code-signed apk fails

2020-05-28 Thread JeeJeeStudio via use-livecode

The normal exstension is .keystore , maybe that's the reason?


Op 28-5-2020 om 08:52 schreef J. Landman Gay via use-livecode:
We're about to release an Android app. I've been signing it for 
development only and it works well. Today I created a keystore 
"FPMobile.jks" in Terminal as usual.


As an aside, I got this in Terminal:
Warning:
The JKS keystore uses a proprietary format. It is recommended to 
migrate to PKCS12 which is an industry standard format using "keytool 
-importkeystore -srckeystore FPMobile.jks -destkeystore FPMobile.jks 
-deststoretype pkcs12".


I don't know if that's significant. I've ignored it in the past, so I 
went ahead and entered the jks file in standalone settings. When LC 
9.6rc2 asked me to locate the keystore during the build, I was unable 
to select it in the file dialog until I chose "All files". That seemed 
to work and the build finished.


At any rate the real problem:

The codesigned app fails to download files from the server. My error 
log shows that sometimes there is no error at all but nothing is 
downloaded, other times the error is vague: "Invalid URL:" with no URL 
indicated. The same script and URLs work in the IDE and in the apk 
when built without the keystore.


I don't think codesigning should affect server queries but that seems 
to be what's happening. I rebuilt the apk without any changes except 
to remove the keystore and it worked perfectly again. Could TSNet be 
involved somehow?


I'm not sure where to look for the fault. Ideas?

Re: Obtaining URL to latest Stable LC Server

So this is a good thing where we LC users have an advantage.

that made me happy.


I like it when clients write requirements in a way that rule out 
pretty much everything else but LiveCode.


The more popular server languages - PHP, Python, Ruby, Perl, etc. - 
all use plain text, so with a requirement for source encryption every 
industry-standard option is off the table.


Now if only we could get that requirement to catch on... :)

Re: Obtaining URL to latest Stable LC Server

2020-05-21 Thread JeeJeeStudio via use-livecode

Thanks for your extensive explanation Richard.


Op 21-5-2020 om 19:01 schreef Richard Gaskin via use-livecode:
The encrypt and decrypt commands are part of the core language common 
to all editions, along with hashing with messageDigest and the older 
md5Digest and sha1Digest functions.


The one form of encryption proprietary editions enjoy is with stacks, 
to protect scripts. For the most part this is irrelevant to any open 
source use since of course the whole point is sharing code.


But there are at least two use cases where stack encryption might be 
useful with open source projects:


- Preventing code modification: If you had a system that uses unlocked 
stacks downloaded from multiple sources, it's possible that one script 
downloaded from  nefarious source could modify another.


- Protecting secrets: Other scripting languages (PHP, Python, Ruby, 
etc.) are plain text files, so secrets like DB passwords need to be 
handled with care.  With LC it would be possible to put that info in 
an encrypted stack for an additional level of protection that would 
give LC a competitive advantage no plain-text scripting language could 
match.


That said, both are edge cases and neither prevents us from getting 
serious work done with what we have today.


In the first case, if one dared to make a system that ran stacks from 
unknown sources, code modification would be the least concern compared 
with all the other ways script behavior can be modified at runtime 
within a single LC instance (frontScripts, backScripts, etc.).  In a 
server context it's almost completely irrelevant because that's the 
last place we'd want to put code from unknown sources. :)


And the second case puts even unlocked LC stacks at no disadvantage 
compared to pretty much any other language everyone else everyone 
uses. If traditional ways of managing secrets are good enough for 
healthcare and banking, they're probably good enough for the types of 
web services the rest of us make.

Yes, true.


Does the commercial version not contain options comparable like LC Indy 
e.g. Encrypting or otherwise?

True, but my focus on the Community Edition is based on two 
considerations:


1. The proprietary edition requires an account-specific licensing key
   which AFAIK precludes external automation.

2. The proprietary edition is very rarely needed.

Most modern server solutions are open source, and many use GPL 
specifically, including not only LiveCode but also MySQL, MariaDB, 
Neo4j, MediaWiki, NextCloud, Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla, Git, Ansible, 
and a good many more.


The GPL being a distribution license, proprietary edition of LiveCode 
Server would be needed only in those cases where the developer is 
distributing a server solution for other devs making server solutions, 
and where they want their own code to be under proprietary license. I 
can imagine such a specific use may case exist in our community, but I 
haven't yet come across it.


For services accessed over a network, the code remains on the server 
and is not distributed to the user. So open source, even GPL, is a 
very good fit for web sites, apps, and other network-delivered services.

It does not has to connect, you can (if i'm total correct) see who is nearby

1/128th baked: Audio and audio control protocols...


Are there Bluetooth libraries for LC mobile? I expect that serial might be 
there but that might not be very privacy preserving.


Oh, Google and Apple are not putting together an app (yet), they are making an

App rejected on Google Play, most probably due to Speech API in combination with Applicable for Families/Children

2020-04-11 Thread JeeJeeStudio via use-livecode

Hello,


i have a simple app which tells the time and date in dutch and english.


I made the app for people/children who are having difficulty reading 
time and dates by pushing a knob in the app like Kids with Autism/Bad 
Sight/other limiting handicap etcetera, very simple. (of course they can 
ask Hey Google!, but this works for some who don't want to use Hey Google!)


Also i want to extend it with more languages in time, using the set 
system language.


It's a free app.

No personal information is pulled from the device, no location, nothing.

It's perfectly privacy safe & does not contain any Easter Eggs :)

The ESRB score is good for any age.

First i used wav samples, but now i changed it to use the Speech API.

It was allowed for the "OK with Families/Children program(or how it is 
called in English)", anyway, now with the speech API it is rejected.


According to this: 
https://play.google.com/about/families/children-and-families/#!?zippy_activeEl=designed-for-families#designed-for-families


it states:

Als uw app de Android Speech API 
gebruikt, 
moet RecognizerIntent.EXTRA_CALLING_PACKAGE zijn ingesteld op de 
bijbehorende PackageName


In English: the RecognizerIntent.EXTRA_CALLING_PACKAGE must be set with 
the belonging PackageName


Anyone knows what this exactly means? is this something which has been 
set? or which can be set via script?


Must a bug report be made for this?

Thanks for any insight.


Kind regards,

Jerry

Re: Old Fossil seeks fast track assistance

2020-04-04 Thread JeeJeeStudio via use-livecode

For Android:

Install Oracle Java SDK 1.8.x

Install Android Studio (or the command line version as you only need the 
sdk and some tools) but easier is Android Studio. Then in Android Studio 
download sdk for Android 4.1.2 and 9 or so. And perhaps an emulator.


But there are lessons for it a lessons.livecode.com so you can see what 
to select exactly.


In LC you need to find the Android SDK in the mobile settings, then if 
succeeded it will also auto- select the correct Java JDK.


Create a test app. you can set the where you want it to be deployed for 
test under the development tab in LC.


On a real phone, you can set to developer mode by going into setting and 
then About phone, and if i;m correct on the Build Number you need to tap 
7x then it will start developer mode.


Now connect it to your mac and the phone will ask something, just trust 
and accept. And now you can test on a real phone.


For iOs i thought you can read i the Notes at every LC vesion which 
Xcode version is supported and you need to create Provisioning Profiles 
per project in Xcode.

Jerry

Op 4-4-2020 om 10:38 schreef Graham Samuel via use-livecode:

Hi All - sorry this is a bit long, but I need help.

I’m a long term LC developer who more or less retired from development a couple 
of years ago, but I’ve kept on lurking in this list and trying rather 
hopelessly to remain up to date. My experience has been mostly on desktop apps, 
with a little iOS work. I haven’t ever done much on Android. I have just about 
retained my credentials as an Apple developer.

Now I find I really want to develop a mobile app at speed, and deploy it.

I don’t anticipate all that much difficulty in creating my app in the sense of 
designing and coding it - this can call on my own quite extensive experience of 
the past, the LC documentation and this invaluable list. I can reasonable hope 
to create a prototype in a few days. However there is a massive gap: testing 
and deployment.

I don’t have access to my most recent development machine (it’s in another 
country and I’m self-isolating), so I am working with an iMac that can only run 
MacOS High Sierra (and Windows 10 via Parallels, but I was hoping not to go 
there for this project). Now, I clearly need to organise the right version of 
XCode and the right SDK for my iOS development, and I need to do the equivalent 
thing for Android - and I don’t know how to do it.

For iOS, I THINK I need XCode 10.2, which I’m trying to download to replace the 
copy of 9.2 already on my machine. I obviously need to work with a compatible 
SDK. For Android, I don’t know where to start, so for now I am putting this on 
the back burner, but I will have to return to it eventually. Even when I’ve 
lined all this up (if indeed it’s feasible), I then need to remind myself how 
to test via simulators (I used to be good at this, so maybe that is not so 
scary, but I am not at all up to date) and then I need to get the app onto real 
hardware - starting with iPhones, as I’ve got a few of these. I really don’t 
know how to do this for testing, and more so I don’t know how to distribute a 
test version to a small population of testers, although I know this is 
feasible. The whole project may crash and burn at this beta testing stage, so 
actually getting it into the App Store can wait a bit.

Obviously I am not expecting people on this list to hold my hand at every step. 
My main concern is to be guided through the body of LC notes etc to get 
absolutely practical advice and recipes as to what to do at each stage. If I 
study the LC stuff long enough, I will get there, but I would dearly love help 
to fast-track it all.

Thanks

Graham

Hi Monte,


thanks for your answers.

I also checked on stackOverflow, it seems more people have trouble with 
it, to simplify the names for it's users. The names also differ per 
country/language it seems. Probably there will some kind of logic, but 
we don't see it yet.



I have no a recipe for the wrong language, but it has to do with how i 
programmed it. to be able to check what system language the user had 
set. I cleared that part of the script so i don't have it anymore 
unfortunately.



Kind regards,

Jerry

Thank you Ralph.


I noticed that the Language on the Android system must be set to use the 
correct language. Else you get funny/strange results.


I only have Dutch and English set. And when i set either of them on the 
first top place in system then my app talks correct. So to me it's also 
strange why it suddenly talked spanish.


First i used my own wav samples, but i like this speech enigine very much.

I will take a look at the lik you've provided.

Hi all,

Yesterday I had to install Android mobile tools on my laptop (since I’m having to 
work from home now. I downloaded the newest JDK 1.8 and the newest Android Studio 
(v. 3.6). (LC v. 9.5.1 on Mac 10.14.6).  I spent a frustrating afternoon of getting 
an error every time I tried to specify the Android SKD root in LC Mobile Support 
preferences. Message was "The chosen folder is not a valid Android SDK. Please 
ensure you have installed it correctly, and enabled support for 9.0 (API 28)”. 
Finally after installing and reinstalling everything several times, I decided to 
drop back to Android Studio v. 3.5.3. Suddenly it was working again!

Details on the forums here: 
http://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?f=32=33636=189292#p189292

It seems like Android Studio 3.6 breaks Android deployment in LC. Before I 
submit a bug report, I wondered if anyone else has seen this problem?
