Hi there

I suggest that there could be a Non-Appbuilding Community Edition

That would be for personal use, and to learn coding.

Don’t go , we love you :)

The open source version, is alive. It just needs maintainers. Personally I 
think this move by LiveCode is healthy. We now have two choices a free open 
source edition maintained by the community, and a closed source version 
maintained by LiveCode LTD. If you want to use the commercial wizz-bang extras 
LiveCode LTD adds - then you can upgrade.

In the meantime the language should go it’s own way. The language I believe has 
always wanted to be a free and open literate language, that enables anyone to 
code in an English like syntax. That vision was the foundation of the 
Kickstarter Campaign and was called Open Language.

I believe the community should maintain that vision. I for one am going to dive 
in :) I see this in two parts.

The first is preserving and maintaining the current code base. The LiveCode 
engine is rich and powerful. Using the current community edition you can create 
pretty well anything you want. Preserving this and strengthening the existing 
sharing of code, and documentation gets us a long way.

Second I feel we should aspire to something meaningful and motivating for the 
future of the language. This would be a long term vision, with a lot of 
learning on the road there. This is how I see it for myself personally, and of 
course I would love it if I had some company on the way :)

Open Language is something I know that is close to LiveCode Ltd’s heart, but it 
is hampered by the need to preserve the legacy  of maintaining complex and 
user-friendly IDE. That with the perceived commercial need to provide all the 
present abilities of the standalone builder mean that it is not a realistic 
proposition. However we can simplify by focussing only on the pure language as 
used by the server - this is a manageable task.

Freeing Open Language from this legacy is a good thing. When it is truly free 
it can join on equal footing the other great languages out there, and still 
hopefully remain compatible with LiveCode Ltd’s commercial offering. For me my 
journey is about mastering the tools that enable the creation of modern 
languages, and these tools have come a long way.

I’m heading on a family holiday now - but over the next two weeks - in 
discussion and with the advice of whoever is interested - Ill get a web site up 
for the project.

Not even Apple is that rapacious.

I used to have a commercial licence back when I was selling stuff (although the 
economics of software never made sense). Since retiring I have been 
“freeloading" with the Community edition as a hobbyist, my only LC uses being 
for personal use, and maintaining admin and operating software I wrote for a 
not-for-profit sporting organisation, and occasionally contributing bug reports. I 
can well understand the need for LC to move to a profitable basis, and I would be 
happy buy a plan if it made sense for our use, but there is no way my NFP 
association can afford US$1000 every year - or even one year (we would use 3 
platforms, and not even the Server is thrown in with the desktop platforms). And a 
Starter Kit that means the app would stop working when I pass on (I have been around 
since Hypercard day 1) is an insult. Seems to me the hobbyist use of LC has come to 
an end. A great pity, but I guess times move on.

I have greatly enjoyed being part of this (mostly) friendly and generous 
community for many years.

Hi Klaus,

I bet the problem is in the remainder of the script, for instance 
changing layers or deleting graphics (although the latter probably not). 
If you change it to


repeat with i = 1 to the num of grcs
  if the short name of grc i beginswith "Graphic_" then put i
end repeat

do you still get an error?

Re: LCGitHubLib deprecation

2020-07-08 Thread Drs Mark Schonewille via use-livecode
That's a very general message. It doesn't say that the events are in the 
lib and it doesn't say that the lib will be removed. Also, you don't 
really need this lib just to use Github with LiveCode, even if it may be 
useful.

Re: Saving stacks before closing

2020-05-25 Thread Drs Mark Schonewille via use-livecode
In LiveCode, usually you're asked to save a stack, even if you didn't 
change it.


The reason is that the property that indicates that the stack has been 
changed, is set to true when a field gets focus. A field gets focus 
whenever a stacks comes to front. When a stack is closed, it needs to 
come to the front :-)


On Mac this issue is worse than on Windows.

In standalones, you need to take care of this yourself. I'm sure you can 
do a better job than LiveCode, particularly if you can limit your app

  to specific changes.

I want to give the user a choice of whether to save changes before closing a 
stack.  To script this, I will handle the closeStackRequest message, and find a 
way to keep track of whether the stack in question has been changed since it 
was last saved.

What I am trying to figure out is under what circumstances LiveCode takes care 
of this without my scripting it.  In the LiveCode IDE, trying to close an 
unsaved stack seems automatically to ask me whether I want to save changes (but 
I have not found a handler in the backscripts that implements this).  This is 
true of stacks I have created with the IDE “new stack” tool and then try to 
close.  Is it also true of stacks I have created by script?

And what happens in a standalone?  Does this feature still work there?

In short, do I need to script an option to save changed stacks before closing, 
or can I rely on LiveCode to take care of this?

Many thanks.

Re: Where is André ? André says "goodbye"

2020-03-14 Thread Drs Mark Schonewille via use-livecode
It looks like url("file:...") still makes some conversion. I think we 
should still use binfile to avoid conversion and before we do so, we 
need to make sure we get the encoding right.

Second edition of Programming LiveCode for the Real Beginner

2019-12-30 Thread Drs Mark Schonewille via use-livecode

Hi everyone,,

I hope you have a great Chrsitmas and a great year behind you. This ear 
I've been busier than ever. One of my projects was the second edition of 
my book Programming LiveCode for the Real Beginner.


https://www3.economy-x-talk.com/file.php?node=programming-livecode-for-the-real-beginner

The book has been updated to include the changes in recent versions of 
LiveCode. Important changes concern the properties inspector and the 
standalone application settings window. Large parts of the chapter about 
properties have been rewritten and several pictures have been updated.


Almost no sample scripts needed to be updated, apart from a number of 
Unicode-related scripts. I've decided, however, to discuss both the 
unicodeEncode/unicodeDecode as well as the textEncode/textDecode 
functions. It seems to me that the old functions are still useful, even 
if only for the sake of backward compatibility. (Not so long ago, I had 
a project where direct conversion using uniEncode and uniDecode seemed 
the easiest route).


Currently, we're in the process of updating the website. I have replaced 
the old (red) cover picture with a picture of the new, fresh, yellow 
cover. A few details still need to be adjusted. Soon, we will raise the 
price of the book. The price change is due to DHL's decision to increase 
the tarrif for books. The current price is 32 euro but we are forced to 
raise the price, prrobably by 4 euro to 36 euro. As long as the price on 
the website hasn't been changed, you can still purchase the book at the 
old price.


IF you have any questions, please write to supp...@economy-x-talk.com. 
Don't use an e-mail address that is affiliated with Apple (for instance 
mac.com, apple.com, icloud.com; we won't be able to confirm your address 
and send you a book). The book is available as a paperback and not in an 
electronic format and we ship all over the world (with China as a 
possible exception; contact support if you're in China).

unable to solve the problem, I suddenly seem to be able to connect to

Re: LC Server - MySQL - update about 2000 rows/records of a table

2017-12-30 Thread Mark Schonewille via use-livecode
The shell function can do this. I don't know if there could be a limit 
to the length of the shell command though.


Working example:

on mouseUp
   put shortfilepath("C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 
5.6\bin\mysql.exe") into myFilePath

   -- the following line contains 2 insert commands
   put "insert into testtable (name) values ('Anne'); insert into 
testtable (name) values ('Belinda')" into mySql
   put myFilePath && "-uUSERNAME -pPASSWORD test -e" && quote & mySql & 
quote into myQuery

   get shell(myQuery)
end mouseUp

Hi,

i need to update regularly about 2000 rows/records of a MySQL table with

What is better?
Executing the 2000 update commands in one take using revexecuteSQL
or should i execute one update command after each other within a repeat loop?

What do you think?

Re: Division by Zero Error

2017-07-08 Thread Mark Schonewille via use-livecode
Usually, I can predict that a numerator is going to be 0, e.g. in 
1/(x^2). I just check the value of the numerator before doing the division.


In rare cases, I can't predict the value of the numerator. In those 
cases, I put a try control structure around the offending lines and some 
code to clean up after the "final" line.

I have tried searching for this but my search keyword choices (or search

Does anyone remember how to do this? Or can point me to the
answer/workaround from the discussion?

OR has anything been added to the LiveCode language in 8.x.x+ that lets
an app tell what monitor it is starting up on? I check the 8.1.4
Dictionary, but I could not find anything.

The 1st line of the screenrects is the "primary" monitor, which with the

running on (it has its menubar on)

Thank you in advance for any pointers/guidance.

Re: Petya attack

Hi Richmond,

Probably not, because the offending file(s) need(s) to be installed in 
the Windows directory to be effective. A Mac doesn't have a Windows 
directory. Any guest OS's running in a virtual machine however may be 
affected.


I could imagine that other Office packages running on Windows machines 
may be vulnerable.

put "left" into myMoveMent

How can I determine if the mouse is moving left or right (or up or down) on the

Not just from the outset (that is easy) but at any moment, like when a user 
changes his mind and move the opposite way.

Something like put x into oldX will not work.

Re: 64 bit desktop apps

2017-06-08 Thread Mark Schonewille via use-livecode
I use a G4 Quicksilver as a server. I have taken it apart and put it back 
together several times, something I can't do with a Mac Mini or MacBook. I use 
Revolution 4.x for special server tasks. It would be convenient if I could use 
the latest version of LiveCode to build not only for Windows, Linux and Intel 
Macs but also for PowerMac. Obviously it would be cool if I could use all 
features of LiveCode 9 on the PowerMac, but I'd be happy already with just the 
possibility to build standalones for OSX 10.4.

Re: Rooting around in the Forum: destructors

2017-06-03 Thread Mark Schonewille via use-livecode
Short answer: LiveCode doesn't have destructors because the xTalk family 
of languages doesn't require them. xTalk languages make the life of the 
developer easier by taking such tasks our of their hands.


1a) Yes, under the hood, because LiveCode is written using variants of 
C, which are object oriented. So, LiveCode is creating and deleting 
(destructing) objects continuously, but the LiveCode developer/user 
doesn't need to be bothered with that.


1b) You could make sure to write clean scripts that always delete 
controls (and even cards and stacks) and variables that are no longer 
needed. LiveCode does a good job cleaning up after finishing a handler, 
so it isn't really necessary to do this yourself, but if you are 
creating controls that you need only one time, it is probably a good 
idea to delete them afterwards. When you delete a control, an object 
under the hood is no longer required and will be "destroyed" at some point.


2) It is in the object-oriented language that is used to create 
LiveCode. There is also a delete command in the LiveCode scripting 
language. The delete command isn't a destructor, but it does provide a 
form a cleaning up.


3) Most of the cleaning up is done automatically. Local variables that 
are used by one handler only, are deleted automatically. Moreover, the 
LiveCode scripting language isn't an object-oriented language, even 
though some people may try to make you believe otherwise and some other 
people wish it were. Really, it isn't. Because the language isn't 
object-oriented, it doesn't need a destructor.

Not having looked at any sort of "serious" programming language since
about 1989 (I don't think that VB 6 is a serious language),
I find it hard to understand what a destructor is beyond a way to free
memory on a system that has constraints in that area.

HOWEVER: as there is no thing in Livecode having "destrucor" written all
over it in big letters for slow characters
like myself could some one tell me:

1. Does Livecode have something(s) that does the job of a destructor?

2. If so, where is it and so on?

3. If not, why not?

Re: forcing a number to be interpreted as a field name

2017-05-30 Thread Mark Schonewille via use-livecode
You shouldn't use numbers and constants as names for fields. One and 1 
are identical and field "one" as well as field "1" may be interpreted as 
the first field rather than the field with name "one" or "1".


Instead always start control names with a letter or a symbol that isn't 
a number. For example, you could start all names with n and write a loop 
like


repeat with x = 1 to 10
  set the numberformat to "00"
  put fld ("n" & x*1) into myValue
  -- do something with myValue here
end repeat

Re: Open Inv Stack on iPhone

Assuming that you don't need to display the stack, you could use

start using stack “/folder/folder/stackName.rev"

and reference any objects and scripts in the stack.

Does anyone have any insight about this….  If you open a stack file on an

  open inv stack “/folder/folder/stackName.rev"

This works fine on windows, mac, and an iPad.  But, on a iPhone (real device or 
simulator) it crashes.  Any thoughts?  Or perhaps a workaround?

The file and the path are good. I know this because if I open the stack without 
“inv”, it opens just fine.

LC 8.1.3
iOS 10.3.1

FYI, the goal is to get the stack file open and in memory so I can call it 
later.  But, I don’t want to see it open.

Thanks in advance!

Re: sims' spotty dog

2017-04-30 Thread Mark Schonewille via use-livecode
It looks to me like at least one of the original e-mails came from a 
server in Vietnam while Sims server seems to be located in Texas and his 
home is on an island. I'd say there is little Sims can do about it.


If his e-mail address were to be disabled, the spammers would simply 
spoof someone else's address. A solution might be to apply Spamcop 
filters, but many people, including those with OnRev accounts, are on 
shared servers and will often get blocked by Spamcop and still be unable 
to stop the spam.

A less presumptuous question might have been:

...for which the answer would be that I wrote Sims about it the other

The precise nature of the problem is unclear to me at this time, given
how frequently mail headers are forged, making it possible that
they're not coming from his account at all.

May take them a bit longer to sort out, but they're working on it.

Re: How many words from start of text to my selection

2017-04-23 Thread Mark Schonewille via use-livecode

HYi Kaveh,

LiveCode sets the focus to the clicked object after running the scripts. 
If I would select text the normal way, the selection would be deselected 
again, because the focus would go away from the field to the button 
containing the script. Using the send in time command, I make sure that 
this command is executed after LiveCode completes its routines, also 
after LiveCode sets the focus.


If you use a different way to execute the script rather then from a 
button or other object that is activated by a click, you won't need this 
last line.


Moreover, sometimes I have this problem and sometimes not. I haven't 
figured out why. At least, when it occurs, there is a way to solve it.

I have updated the website. Please go to
http://economy-x-talk.com/conf/

We're still looking for speakers. If you want to share your ideas or are 
looking for advice, this is your opportunity.


We're expecting people from the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and 
Switzerland. Given the current location, Antwerp, this conference is an 
ideal opportunity to meet with other LiveCode programmers, if you're in 
the North of France. Please, consider participating.


The website uses PayPal to handle the registration fee. If this isn't a 
good option for you, contact me. Got any more questions? Just send me an

Hello,

Next week is the 'eHUG International Mini Conference on LiveCode'. The

The conference room is open from 12:00h. The location is the Ibis hotel,
Meistraat 39 in Antwerp, Belgium.

Participation is only possible if you purchase a ticket no later than
22nd February. The tickets will be sent to you later this week. There
are 20 tickets available. If you want to be sure of a ticket, you'll
need to act quickly.

The prices of the tickets are listed on the website. Additionally,
non-alcoholic beverages are available for 6 euro per person. Coffee and
tea are available from a dispenser (for which my apologies). If any
budget is left, it will be spent on additional drinks or perhaps on
dinner afterwards.

Everything we need is available: WIFI, a beamer with VGA connection,
electricity, at least one extra laptop, drinks, etc. If you have any
special requests, just let me know.

We need more speakers! You can tell something about your own project,
private or professional, for which you have created a liveCode stack. If
you use a different platform, such as SuperCard, Filemaker, HyperStudio
or Xojo, you're very welcome to tell us about it.

Do you think you're not so good at making presentations? Organise a
workshop instead! Just show us how you work with your favorite tool and
if you like, or if you can, invite your public to join.

Please indicate that you're a speaker when you buy a ticket. You will
receive a discount. A discount is also available if you buy the book
Programming LiveCode for the Real Beginner.

After the formal part of the conference, we may have dinner together.
The next day, we might have a social event before going home. We will
organise this on the spot.

I hope to have informed you sufficiently. Just send me an e-mail
right-away if you have any questions and I'll reply as soon as I can.

Dear conference participants,

I would like to thank all early birds for registering for the eHUG 
International Mini Confernece on LiveCode.


Some of you may have ordered a hotel already, while others are still

this, here is a little information about hotels.


First of all, the location of the conference is the Ibis hotel, 
Meistraat 9 in Antwerp, Belgium. A room in this hotel costs 
approximately 90 euro. More info about the hotel is available here 
http://tinyurl.com/za4o9ou


If you want a little more luxury, you might prefer the Leonardo hotel, 
which is close enough to the conference location to go there on foot. 
The price difference between the hotels is very small.

More info: http://leonardo-antwerpen.hotels-antwerpen.net/nl/#rooms

Please note: registration for the conference closes tomorrow. Please, 
make sure to register on time. Tickets are still available at

http://economy-x-talk.com/conf/

If you prefer not to use PayPal or a credit card to book your conference 
ticket, just contact me and we'll try to find an alternative that works 
for you.

[ANN] About the conference in Antwerp

2017-02-19 Thread Mark Schonewille via use-livecode

Hello,

Next week is the 'eHUG International Mini Conference on LiveCode'. The 
conference will take place on 25th February from 13:00h. until 18:00h. 
The conference room is open from 12:00h. The location is the Ibis hotel, 
Meistraat 39 in Antwerp, Belgium.


Participation is only possible if you purchase a ticket no later than 
22nd February. The tickets will be sent to you later this week. There 
are 20 tickets available. If you want to be sure of a ticket, you'll 
need to act quickly.


The prices of the tickets are listed on the website. Additionally, 
non-alcoholic beverages are available for 6 euro per person. Coffee and 
tea are available from a dispenser (for which my apologies). If any 
budget is left, it will be spent on additional drinks or perhaps on 
dinner afterwards.


Everything we need is available: WIFI, a beamer with VGA connection, 
electricity, at least one extra laptop, drinks, etc. If you have any 
special requests, just let me know.


We need more speakers! You can tell something about your own project, 
private or professional, for which you have created a liveCode stack. If 
you use a different platform, such as SuperCard, Filemaker, HyperStudio 
or Xojo, you're very welcome to tell us about it.


Do you think you're not so good at making presentations? Organise a 
workshop instead! Just show us how you work with your favorite tool and 
if you like, or if you can, invite your public to join.


Please indicate that you're a speaker when you buy a ticket. You will 
receive a discount. A discount is also available if you buy the book 
Programming LiveCode for the Real Beginner.


After the formal part of the conference, we may have dinner together. 
The next day, we might have a social event before going home. We will 
organise this on the spot.


I hope to have informed you sufficiently. Just send me an e-mail 
right-away if you have any questions and I'll reply as soon as I can.

International LiveCode Mini Conference

In the second half of February, an international LiveCode Mini
Conference has been scheduled. The dates are still to be determined.
The conference has been planned to take place during the weekends of
18 or 25 February.

While the conference is called a "LiveCode" conference, it should be
clear that anyone with an interest in rapid application development
is invited: database admins, Filemaker users, Xojo fans, SuperCard
aficionados, and anyone who is looking for new ways to be creative
with computers.

All information is preliminary. As the date of the conference
approaches, we will have all information available.

The conference will consist of one day with multiple sessions. We're
planning simultaneous workshops and presentations. We're thinking of
four times two simultaneous sessions of 30 minutes. Afterwards, there
will be plenty of opportunity to meet with fellow programmers and
discuss any topic you like.

The conference will be held in Antwerp, Belgium, to facilitate
participation by British, French and German people. Obviously, you're
also invited if you live in a different country.

We're planning to rent a small conference room. Therefore, there will
be a small fee of approximately 35 euro (including VAT, with
invoice).  If you want to host a workshop or give a presentation,
you'll be eligible for a discount. Since fees are small, discounts
will be small too.

Possible topics: - Getting started with LiveCode - Advanced LiveCode
scripting - Widgets - Arduino and Raspberry Pi - Usage in real life
(home and business) - DBMS (MySQL, PostGreSQL, XML, others) -
FileMaker - SuperCard - HyperStudio - Xojo - PHP - other subjects

You might want to spend one or two nights in a hotel. We'll be happy
to help you find board and lodgings. The hotel room, drinks, food and
other expenses will be on your own account.

We would like to know how many people are interested. Please, send a
reply before Friday 13th if you're interested (you can reply to my
personal address, in the "reply-to" header, please don't reply to the
mailing list). Next weekend, all decisions will be made final.

This might be the only edition of this conference! Grab the
opportunity and make sure you're there! It is going to be special for
sure!

Amen! The FOSS, Community edition is a great thing, and it's

It'd also be great if the mother ship would also consider, one day, a more
inexpensive way to step up to the level where App Store submission is
possible, perhaps as a short-term (say, 1 month?) window, bundled with
advice for efficient App Store submission? Perhaps something similar for
HTML5 publication in the future? LC is wonderful, but it is feeling more
and more like a product with a 'keep out, professionals only' label on the
virtual box... :-/

Me, I'd SO glad I got Indy in time to keep annual cost just about
affordable. I make peanuts (at most!) from what I build, but that's not the
point for me; it's just too much fun not to be part of the LC builder
community. I did once hope HTML5 would be available as part of that, but
sadly it's separate. :(

Re: AW: AW: Installer software

2016-12-09 Thread Mark Schonewille
Interesting discussion here. It is possible to make an 8GB app bundle, 
since the files inside the bundle are still individual files. It isn't a 
good idea to include 8GB of videos in a stack. I wouldn't include all 
8GB of files in one installer, since the installer is basically one big 
stack (which runs completely indepenently of any other files). I would 
put the files in a separate folder on the dmg and write a script that 
copies the files from the folder to the preferred destination. Such a 
script could be started from Installer Maker.

Hi Peter,
thats interesting. Right now, I pack the 2 video files (total 8 GB) in
10 zip files on DVD and store them when installing in a users choice
location on HD. I would have never thought it would be a good idea to create
one big  8GB app bundle. Do you think this would be a good idea? Wouldn't
this affect the loading time and memory requirement of the app? I always
thought that if you start an app, the whole bundle is loaded into memory.

of installation, extraction and copying 2 videos from 10 zip
files). I don't know, how I could realize this with the classic "drag
and drop from DMG" paradigm.


Hi Tiemo,

Don't forget that .DMG files are already compressed.  I would normally
recommend simply shipping your 2 videos as separate files within your
app bundle.

Re: Non-Public API Usage

2016-12-03 Thread Mark Schonewille

Hi Pink,

If you are using the names _getcontext, _makecontext and _setcontext for 
your handlers in your scripts, just change the names and make sure they 
are nowhere mentioned in your app. If you didn't use these handler 
names, report it as a bug to the QCC.

I compiled and submitted an app using iTunes Connect. I received the

I compiled using Livecode 8.1.2 rc2, I have Xcode 8.1 installed. I tried

How do I fix this?

Dear developer,

We have discovered one or more issues with your recent delivery for
"PlanningBoard 2". To process your delivery, the following issues must be
corrected:

Non-public API usage:

The app references non-public symbols in MadPink Planning Board:
_getcontext, _makecontext, _setcontext
If method names in your source code match the private Apple APIs listed
above, altering your method names will help prevent this app from being
flagged in future submissions. In addition, note that one or more of the
above APIs may be located in a static library that was included with your
app. If so, they must be removed.

If you think this message was sent in error and that you have only used
Apple-published APIs in accordance with the guidelines, send the app's
nine-digit Apple ID, along with detailed information about why you believe
the above APIs were incorrectly flagged, to apprev...@apple.com. For further
information, visit the Technical Support Information page.

Though you are not required to fix the following issues, we wanted to make
you aware of them:

Missing Push Notification Entitlement - Your app includes an API for Apple's
Push Notification service, but the aps-environment entitlement is missing
from the app's signature. To resolve this, make sure your App ID is enabled
for push notification in the Provisioning Portal. Then, sign your app with a
distribution provisioning profile that includes the aps-environment
entitlement. This will create the correct signature, and you can resubmit
your app. See "Provisioning and Development" in the Local and Push
Notification Programming Guide for more information. If your app does not
use the Apple Push Notification service, no action is required. You may
remove the API from future submissions to stop this warning. If you use a
third-party framework, you may need to contact the developer for information
on removing the API.

Once the required corrections have been made, you can then redeliver the
corrected binary.

Regards,

The App Store team

Re: My own productivity app

2016-11-30 Thread Mark Schonewille

Hi Terry,

It used to be possible to get the front-most app with AppleScript. Due 
to sandboxing, this may no longer apply, but perhaps signing the app (or 
turning off Gate Keeper) will allow this again?

Thank you, Jacqueline and Mike, for your responses.

Jacqueline wrote that LC provides no feedback when it isn't the frontmost app. 
But is there a way to use MacOS's Notification Center from within LiveCode to 
tell me things like that?

Mike's solution using a timed loop seems to do the trick to add the MacBreakZ 
functionality. So the app and site blocking functionality is the only thing 
that is hard to implement. But for that, I could use (hey)Focus; this app is 
the least intrusive of the three I mentioned. So I could make my own 
Pomodoro-timer with a ToDo-list and the MacBreakZ-functionality, and let 
(hey)Focus do the site/app blocking.

Heck, key logging, site blocking, disabling of other apps… It sounds like I'm 
brewing up something evil. (But I'm not.)

Thanks for the help.


With kind regards,
Terry Vogelaar



The only way I know of to monitor keystrokes/mouse events is with a loop. Check to 
see if keysdown() is empty, and "if the mouse is down.”  Certain things won't 
trigger the mouse is down such as grabbing a title bar and dragging it around (on 
windows)  but most other clicks will work fine.

For a simple test, I made a stack with a field and a button. the following code 
is in the button.
local sRunning

on mouseUp
if sRunning is empty then put false into sRunning
put not sRunning into sRunning
loopit
end mouseUp

command loopit
if sRunning then
  if the keysdown is not empty then
 put keysdown() into field 1
  else
 put empty into field 1
  end if
  if the mouse is down then
 set the backgroundcolor of field 1 to red
  else
 set the backgroundcolor of field 1 to empty
  end if
  send loopit to me in 100 millisec
end if
end loopit

Placing the window where its visible but not focused and work with another 
program.  Every click the field turns red, every keypress and the keys that are 
down show up in the field.  With a delay of 100 seconds its possible to miss an 
event, but if a person were actually working actively most keypresses and 
clicks will be caught.  It should be possible to use either applescript or 
vbscript to note what window is focused, though im not sure how to tell if one 
is working in a facebook tab or not.


The problem I see here is that LC has no knowledge of what other apps are in 
use, and provides no feedback when it isn't the frontmost app. There may be 
shell calls you could use to get some of the information, but I kind of doubt 
there's a way to monitor keystrokes and that sort of thing.

Re: Read from file

2016-11-29 Thread Mark Schonewille
This could be a number of strings, such as "file not open for read" or 
"file does not exist". There is no special string that indicates a 
particular error, e.g. the errors don't all start with "error". You have 
to check that the error is unexpected and doesn't contains "eof".

Hi Rick,

That third party must have an API for it. If not, you need to change the 
vendor. I can't be that e.g. Apple sells music, while everybody is able

[ANN] Order Programming LiveCode for the Real Beginner now!

2016-11-23 Thread Mark Schonewille

Hi coders,

In one month, it will be Christmas again. During this time, we are often 
told that shipments are urgent. If you want to have your copy of the 
book before the holidays, don't wait but order it now. Any orders placed 
until Monday 28th November will be sent on Wednesday 30st November. This 
should give the shipping companies sufficient time to deliver the book 
to your door.


We're currently at the fourth print run of my book Programming LiveCode 
for the Real Beginner. When the third print run was sold out, we decided 
to print a large stock of books, so we have plenty of copies available 
for immediate delivery.


The fourth print of Programming LiveCode for the Real Beginner has been 
updated to include a number of new XML commands, which were introduced 
after the first release of the book. I have also added a few remarks 
about LiveCode 7 to the chapter on Unicode.


Quite a few new features have been added to LiveCode 7 and 8, but it 
looks like the examples in the book are still fully compatible with 
LiveCode 8. Keep in mind, though, that the book is for beginners and 
focuses on the basics of the LiveCode language.


You can order the book at http://tinyurl.com/livecodebook and more info 
is available at http://tinyurl.com/livecodeblog

Re: Shell Command and cURL

2016-11-22 Thread Mark Schonewille
It doesn't make sense to create a list of 14-something files and try 
to paste it somewhere. Instead, write a shell script that gets the file 
list and download all files in the list.


Your script might look like this:

#!/bin/bash
$ curl -s ftp://user:pass@IP/path/to/folder/ | \
grep -e '^-' | awk '{ print $9 }' | \
while read f; do \
curl -O ftp://user:pass@IP/path/to/folder/$f; \
done

Save the script in a text file and do a chmod 755 on it to make an 
executable file. Now let LiveCode launch the executable file. I think 
the files will be downloaded to the defaultFolder or perhaps to the 
location of the executable file .


If this is too much trouble, you might also save your current shell 
command to a file and have LiveCode launch it.

Hello everyone,

I have never used LiveCode’s Shell command, and I was hoping that someone on 
the forum might be able to give me an example of how to use it with cURL to 
download a list of files from an FTP site. I have been using cURL to download 
many files at a time from a given directory by pasting the code into Terminal 
in OS X. The problem is that Terminal cannot handle a command that is too long. 
This limits me to pasting no more than about 500 file paths at a time, but I 
need to download about 145,000 files. That’s a fair bit of manual pasting. So 
if someone could give me an example of using the Shell command with cURL, I’d 
be much obliged.

Re: OT non LC: cross tab/window browser communication

2016-11-22 Thread Mark Schonewille
This is strange and very insecure. You should let the tab load and 
redirect to the PayPal page after the tab has finished doing everything 
it should do.


I had a similar problem though. I needed a page to give PayPal time to 
process a transaction. I did this with a fake progress bar, which waited 
1 minute and then reloaded the page. If the transaction has been 
completed, I sent the license, but if the transaction hadn't been 
completed, I showed a message saying that the license would be delivered 
manually at a later time after additional checks had been performed.

LiveCode meeting

2016-10-08 Thread Mark Schonewille

Beste dames en heren,

Op zondag 16 oktober organiseren we een LiveCode meeting ergens in 
Nederland (Tilburg of Utrecht). Het is een beetje kortdag, maar deze 
datum maakt het voor een buitenlandse deelnemer mogelijk om aanwezig te 
zijn. Ik hoop dat jullie op deze dag aanwezig kunnen zijn.


Het wordt een informele bijeenkomst van enkele uren. Tot de mogelijke 
onderwerpen behoren: LiveCode 8, widgets, Valentina, SuperCard 4.8, 
Arduino, de nieuwe HyperDuino, en HyperStudio. Daarnaast nodigen we je 
graag uit om iets over je eigen project(en) te vertellen of vragen te 
stellen aan collega-LiveCoders.


Voorts verloten we een licentie van HyperStudio en een exemplaar van het 
boek Programming LiveCode for the Real Beginner.


Er bestaat ook nog een plan om de volgende meeting in februari of maart 
in Antwerpen te houden.  Hierover zal tijdens de eerstvolgende meeting 
overleg plaatsvinden. Wil je meebeslissen, zorg dan dat je erbij bent.


Ik zal binnen enkele dagen nog een e-mailtje sturen aan eenieder die op 
mijn lijstje staat. Ik hoop later in de week met meer nieuws te komen.




Dear ladies and gentlemen,

Sunday 16th October I will organise a meeting somewhere in the 
Netherlands (Tilburg or Utrecht. I know it is on short notice, but by 
oganising it on this date, we make it possible for a foreign participant 
to be present at the meeting. I hope you will be able to attent the 
meeting on this day.


The meeting will be informal and take several hours. Possible subjects 
are: LiveCode 8, widgets, SuperCard 4.8, Arduino, de new HyperDuino, and 
HyperStudio. You are also invited to tell something about your own 
project(s) or to ask your fellow-LiveCoders a number of questions.


Additionally we raffle off a licence of HyperStudio and a copy of the 
book Programming LiveCode for the Real Beginner.


Moreover there is a plan to organise a meeting in february or march in 
Antwerp (Belgium). We will talk about this at the first next meeting. 
Make sure you're there, if you would like to be involved in any decisions.


I'll send an e-mail to everyone on my list within a few days. Hopefully 
I'll be able to provide more news later this week.

Forums are great but still remind me of my childhood and are generally used
for specific issues. I would really like a Slack thread that can be
indexed, but to ask people to move away from email might be a little too
technological for most.

As a person who wants to be involved with the community, and seeing that
the answers to a lot of problems and issues are contained in this massive,
unindexed, scattered, blob, of words that spans thousands of emails in my
inbox, I would like to make a plea to use any alternative that works.

I understand that the use-list is for the OG's but let me ask you, at what
cost is it acceptable? Even for the OG's, let me ask you, how many
solutions pointers to the problems you have had do you think are contained
within the history of the use-list? Can you pull them up quickly in an
organized fashion?

So I just wasted an hour tracking down a sort of "problem" that was not
really a problem.

My desktop app has printing and selecting "Print..." from the File menu
of my app was doing the "right" think, but Comand/Control-P was not.

Sadly, it took me a whole hour to realize that the Command-P was being
passed to the IDE and invoking the IDE's File > Print Card... menu item,
which looked enough like a very old version of our printing code in this
case to make me think that tons of recent changes had someone "been undone".

So, problem solved in once sense in that when the Standalone gets built,
Command/Control-P will end up invoking my printer code, but the IDEs.

But, here is the puzzler, is there a way to tell the IDE to NOT handle
menu keyboard equivalents and send those keyboard commands to the
Applications menu so that all the functions of the App's menu can really
be tested in the IDE?

I could see nothing in Preferences.

Sorry, i have to disagree. If your company is liable to tax on sales/purchases 
then you have to do VAT declarations, even if you just sell a digital product  
for 1 Euro.
You can decide if you do  the declarations with each EU country separately or 
if you do the declaration using MOSS. There is no lower sales limit which would 
allow to ignore this EU rule.

Before i wrote the above lines i phoned the German Federal Central Tax Office 
and spoke to someone who is responsible for the MOSS.
He assured me that there is no such limit. But he was aware that there is a 
widespread opinion out there that there is such a limit, but there isn´t.

If you have other official informations especially about the sales limit, then 
I am more than happy to see them.

Regards,
Matthias

as soon as possible. Clearly, s/he is unaware of the rules.

Re: Slight annoyance from MacKiev

2016-06-21 Thread Mark Schonewille
I have been using HyperStudio for some time now. The current version is 
something between PowerPoint and HyperCard, althought that would be a 
modern version of HyperCard.


HS Author provides a subset of the features of HyperStudio. HyperStudion 
used to do the HTML5 export by itself, but people would often create a 
HS stack with many features only to discover that the HTML5 version 
wouldn't contain all these features. Therefore, a separate product was 
created, which lets you use only those features that can be exported to 
HTML5.


I don't use Author very often, but have made some nice pages that let me 
move pictures around (I wanted to write "objects" but that would be wrong).


Sometimes I use HyperStudio to play with HyperDuino. I was able to 
collect some environmental data (light and temperature) using Arduino 
and HyperStudio, without any scripting.


To answer your questions: you can put the HTML5 files created by Author 
into Dropbox and load them on your iOS or Android device. Dropbox can 
download the files and let you use the "app" whenever you want it, off-line.


Yes, you can also do this with LiveCode's HTML5 exports, although I 
haven't tried that yet and I wouldn't be surprised if there were some 
catch that makes this slightly more complicated that expected. I really 
would have to try this.

Re: Control? Object?

2016-06-19 Thread Mark Schonewille

Hi Richmond,

The LiveCode documentation consistently talks about objects, where this 
should be controls. The scripting language, however, mixes up the two 
concepts completely.


An object is a collection of properties and instructions defined by a 
programming syntax (where one shouldn't limit "programming syntax" to 
the traditional text listings but also include "syntax" created by 
visual programming environments).


A control is an often visual component of an interface, which allows the 
user to interact with the program, such as a button, a field and a slider.


Objects can create controls, but objects may also perform other tasks, 
such as saving data to disk, creating arrays, moving a control, and many 
other tasks.


In my book, I consistently distinguish objects and controls. This means 
that I almost always talk about controls and very rarely about objects, 
because it isn't really necessary to use objects in the LiveCode 
scripting language and AFAIK there is no "create object" command in the 
LiveCode language  (but if you really want to, you can simulate objects).


It is interesting that LiveCode (I'm working with 6.7.6 today) doesn't 
have an "object" keyword but does have a "control" keyword, while many 
functions, commands and messages contain either the string "control" or 
the string "object".


It is clear that LiveCode hasn't matured well enough to deal with this 
issue. I would recommend using above definitions consistently. One day, 
real objects will be introduced into the LiveCode scripting language and 
we will need to distinguish them from controls.

Hi Quentin,

I see the same results, when I try your code. However, if I first store 
the random value and add 1 to an item in the string in the next line in 
the script, it works correctly. Apparently, the random function and the 
add command are incompatible.


on mouseUp
   put "0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0" into myVar
   repeat 100
  put random(16) into myRandom
  add 1 to item myRandom of myVar
  put myVar & cr after myTempList

   end repeat
   put sum (Fred) into line (1 + the number of lines in fld "testbed") of fld 
"testbed"
end mouseUp

This handler *should* end up generating a 16-item string of integers which sum 
to exactly 100. What it *actually does* end up generating, is a 16-item string 
of integers whose sum may or may not fall somewhere within the range 80-120. 
Not sure what the hell is going on here, but I am not at all happy about it. 
Perhaps other people might like to try this code on their systems, and see if 
it works as intended for them?

Re: the keys of the dragData?

2016-05-27 Thread Mark Schonewille

Hi David,

The dragData isn't an array but a property. By putting the dragData into 
a variable, you convert it into an array and you'll be able to get the keys.

Re: Infinite LiveCode - Message from CEO

I agree with you. The community helped the company. In return for that,
all new features should be open-source. I'm very disappointed by the
"business-only" features. It seems inconsistent with RunRev's new
open-source strategy. I won't be supporting any future fund

Re: Converting a stack to a text file..

2016-05-04 Thread Mark Schonewille
I have created DIFfersifier a long time ago. A few years ago, I added a 
way to export stacks to XML. It isn't difficult to do that, since you 
just list all the properties as XML. If I remember correctly, a few 
properties can be read but not set, or perhaps there was another 
problem. I never got to writing a tool to recreate stacks from the same 
XML files, but although it would be a lot of work, it is certianly doable.

Some time back on this email list there were discussions about tool(s)
to write a stack (mainstack, substacks, controls, images, and all their

run through another tool to recreate the stack exactly. I think I recall
that the purpose was to work with source code management systems which
tend to want to work with text files.

In theory it was a matter of looping through all stack, substacks,
cards, and controls and writing out all their standard and custom
properties and scripts and then reversing this to rebuild the stack(s)

I find myself in need of a tool to export a stack and all its possible
bits to a text file and then regenerate it. Did anyone ever build such
tools? Willing to share them?

Re: List Field Not receiving Mouse messages unless a line is clicked?

2016-04-25 Thread Mark Schonewille
I also consider this a bug, but it has always been like in 
Revolution/MetaCard.


You may solve this problem by using mouseDown messages or by setting the 
lockText to true. This isn't always a good solution, but it is worth a try.


I think it is like this because list fields normally should respond only 
to changes in the selection and often a different button just retrieves 
the selected line while the list field itself doesn't need to do anything.


Still, I vaguely remember being surprised when I moved from HyperCard to 
Revolution and I think both mouseUp and mouseDown should be triggered.

This is a bug, not a feature, since it is easy to determine if a line is empty

there is not.


I never noticed this before.

Subject: List Field Not receiving Mouse messages unless a line is clicked?

I was trying to find a way to force a list field to unhilite it’s line.

The instinctive behavior would be to just click away from any lines below the 
list and then any hilited line in the list would be unhilited.  But my handler 
doesn’t fire if I click anywhere in the field that is not on a line.

Try this yourself

Create a scrolling list field. The IDE will prepopulated with choice 1, 2, 3 
(lines)

Make the field bigger so there is space below those three lines

Add this to the script of the field:


on mousedown

put the hilitedtext

end mousedown

on mouseup

answer "hello" with "OK"

end mouseup

Note that the mouseup message triggers the answer dialog only if you click on a 
line.

If you click on the field below.. .nothing happens.

This seems to be a bug to me… since the mouseUP is in the script of the field… 
the field show hear it whether or not a line is clicked.

A brief message about my book

2016-04-16 Thread Mark Schonewille

Hi everyone,

We're currently at the fourth print run of my book Programming LiveCode 
for the Real Beginner. We decided to print a large stock of books, so we 
have plenty of copies available for immediate delivery.


The fourth print of Programming LiveCode for the Real Beginner has been 
updated to include a number of new XML commands, which were introduced 
after the first release of the book. I have also added a few remarks 
about LiveCode 7 to the chapter on Unicode.


Before the official release of LiveCode 7, I had the impression I were 
going to have to rewrite parts of the book. Fortunately, it appears that 
all examples can still be executed in LiveCode 7 and even the 
text-related subjects are still current. It looks like the examples in 
the book are also fully compatible with LiveCode 8.


You can order the book at http://tinyurl.com/livecodebook and more info 
is available at http://tinyurl.com/livecodeblog
