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.

This is what I received:

We're contacting you regarding upcoming changes for your GitHub Apps:
  - LCGitHubLib

We no longer support two events which your GitHub Apps may rely on, 
"integration_installation" and "integration_installation_repositories".

These events can be replaced with the "installation" and

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.

Op 24-5-2020 om 19:28 schreef David Epstein via use-livecode:

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).

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

Thanks. It is an interesting article. I tend to agree and I think it 
would be fun to give BBC Basic a try. The purpose may not always be to 
move on to other programming languages however and so I still might

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.

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

Something like put x into oldX will not work.

Re: 64 bit desktop apps

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

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?

Richmond.

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

I have, due to the government's wisdom, checkboxes I have to use to display

function as parts of groups.

But looping through, with the fields in these things named for the possible
values (usually text), I have to refer to them.

So I have value of  (0,1,2) for one of these


I need to loop through these values to set the field with the corresponding
name.

Having a value of zero in vl, how do can I refer to the field named "0" in
group tgGrp?

When this isn't a calculated value, I do it by name (zero, one, etc.), but
that isn't an option sometimes.

Re: Open Inv Stack on iPhone

2017-05-25 Thread Mark Schonewille via use-livecode

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 
iPhone invisibly, the app crashes.  For example:

  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:

"What has been done about this?"

...for which the answer would be that I wrote Sims about it the other
day, and he replied to let me know he's written Heather about it.

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.

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 
contemplating what to do. Because I have received a few questions about 
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

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!

We really need 4 or 5 more participants to make the conference possible. 
If you are planning to go, let me know! If you know someone else who 
might go, ask him or her to send me a message.

International LiveCode Mini Conference

- Time and date are still preliminary!
- Make sure to send a message to me on Friday or earlier if you're
interested!
- decisions are made over the weekend, depending on feedback!

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.

PLEASE NOTE: While the conference is called a "LiveCode" conference,
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.

Probably not. It is just too much work to organise. Perhaps someone else 
wants to take up the challenge, but for now I'd say you'll have to be there.

gotta say... looking at livecode.com it  is very clear that livecode is
nearly hoping that people won't notice that there is an open source version
and buy a license because they didn't know any better.

shadyshady.. almost understandable, but why go open source if you
gonna pretend like you aren't?

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. :(
