Re: LC 9.6.7 export snapshot from a player object seems to fail on Windows (10)

2022-04-29 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi Paul

I just tried the same thing and got the same result.  It works on Mac, not on 
Windows.

I also tried exporting the image as a file to see if that made any difference. 

  export snapshot from rect tRect of player "mediaConvert" of stack 
"libHrAPI" to file [filepath/filename.png] as PNG

 I got an image file but it is the same as what you see in the image object on 
the stack — an image of a white rect inside the player boarder.

So it looks like it is a bug.  The snapshot does create a proper png it just 
doesn’t grab the current video image inside the player it just gets a white 
rect.

Re: Curved text possible?

2022-04-28 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
I was thinking that SVG might work as someone else has said.

At first I thought you could create individual files for each letter and number 
and put the path for a letter into a svg widget which you could rotate or scale.
you would then have to calculate the angle of rotation and location of each svg 
widget on a path.   But then when I tried rotating the svg widget its scale 
would change as it rotated because the bounds of the rect were changing. Then 
you would have to calculate the scale depending on the rotation angle and that 
seemed a bit much.

I also thought you could import the svg file as an image and perhaps that would 
not have the odd behaviour when rotating.  I did not try that though.

Then I found this.

https://css-tricks.com/snippets/svg/curved-text-along-path/ 


it shows how to use css to put text along a SVG path.  At the LiveCode Dev Con 
there were a few unconventional uses of the browser widget beyond displaying 
webpages that add features that can add features that LiveCode does not have 
natively.  So I thought maybe this is one of them.  So what I thought could be 
done is display the above in a browser widget or,  If you did not want to show 
the browser widget, use the browser widget to render the curved text, thentake 
a snapshot of the rendered text and then show that in an image.

Not sure if it will work but the sessions at the conference have really got me 
thinking of new ways to leverage the technology in that widget.

Re: playrate & templateimage

2022-03-31 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi Klaus

I have been meaning to test this but have to get my Windows machine up and 
running.   I have been using my Mac exclusively for a while.

I suspect I will get the same result as Paul but  I may get a chance to try it 
before this week Saturday.

I would be interested in how LC 10 works though.   

In LC 9 the player is using AVFoundation on Mac or DirectShow on Windows.

In LC 10  the player will use Windows Player Media Foundation.

https://livecode.com/livecode-10-sneak-peek/
Windows Player Media Foundation

The current player on Windows uses DirectShow – which only natively supports 
the WMV file format. Newer video formats (such as MP4) require third-party 
codecs to be installed. The move to Media Foundation will mean these are 
natively supported. MediaFoundation libraries support all the modern codecs 
such as mp4 natively – so mp4s will play in player objects without any 
thirdparty components needing to be installed in the OS.

Additionally, mirrored video playback will work correctly as well as 
non-standard playback rates.

This brings parity between Windows, macOS, Android and iOS video playback 
features in terms of supported video formats.


From what I remember the first DP of LC 10 did not include the new Windows 
Player Media foundation.

I don’t know if it has been added to recent DPs.   Once it is I plan to put it 
through its paces.

Hopefully that will resolve the issue with variable rate playback and result in 
parity for windows and the other platforms.

Re: How to extract a video clip...

Hi

Look up the mergAVVideoComposition commands etc. in the dictionary. 

They are for Mac and iOS.  Lots of versatility to slice dice and concatenate 
clips in a video composition.  

If you are on Windows I guess the ffmpeg would work.

The term “Multi-finder” rung a bell but not very loudly.  I knew it was a Mac 
thing but I wasn’t quite sure what anymore. I realized my loss of memory around 
this is probably an age thing when I looked it up and found the date that it 
debuted...  way back in 1987.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MultiFinder.  That 
was before the Berlin wall fell, remember that?

Re: Sharing a desktop app, or with beta testers

2022-01-26 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
+1 to Peter’s comments

I also have benefited from the lesson listed below and Matthias’ helper stack.

Also when I ran into problems following the lesson or using the Helper stack 
Matthias was very responsive and helpful.

Setting up an Apple Developer account is not hard and just a part of doing 
business if you are developing for iOS, macOS …

The process for Code Signing, Notorizing and Stapling does seem daunting at 
first.  I would recommend diving in first with a knife in your teeth to the 
command line as outlined in the lessons so you can learn what is going on.  I 
found it helpful to see the responses to any errors I made so I could learn 
what parameters were needed and how they were written in the command line.  
This helped me to ensure I had the correct parameters for the fields right in 
the helper app.

Then I would start using the helper stack using the parameters from the command 
line to fill in the fields in the helper app.

When I come across these kinds of tasks that are new and daunting with 
technology I have not used before they sometimes cause me anxiety to the point 
where I can’t face starting them.  For these I have a mantra “Other people have 
done this so why can’t I do it too.”  Taking that attitude I am able to 
overcome that mental inertia that keeps me from starting to work on it.

Do you need to use the browser object to use WebRTC or would if be feasible to 
code your own solution using  the cameraControl Object to capture the video to 
send,  the player object to play the incoming video and tsNet to handle all the

Re: Livecode downloads VERY slow

2021-12-22 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
I must be in the really ancient fogey range.

I remember 1200 baud modems.  In the late ’80s a teacher at our high school in 
Wawa, Ontario got his hands on one. It was the size of an air fryer. Our 
computer club at the school hooked it up to a Commodore PET 2001 and tried to 
connect to Compuserve.  Long waits listening to modem squeals but we never 
managed to get connected then.  We were in Wawa which is on the north shore of 
Lake Superior so maybe the phone connection was not good enough.
Here is the state of the art then, 
http://www.technofileonline.com/texts/2400modem88.html 


I also remember my Apple GeoPort modem with my Mac Quadra 660AV I think.  
https://apple.fandom.com/wiki/GeoPort 

From the above article here are GeoPort speeds.
GeoPort Telecom Adapter M1694LL/B - 14.4 kilobaud 
 (kbps)
GeoPort Telecom Adapter (II) M2117LL/A - 28.8 kilobaud 
 (kbps)
GeoPort Telecom Adapter II M5438LL/A - 33.6 kilobaud

Re: Livecode downloads VERY slow

Hi Bill

Are you downloading directly from https://downloads.livecode.com or are you 
using the LiveCode Updater stack that pops up when ever there is a new update?

I just tried https://downloads.livecode.com  
and got the RC1 of LC 9.6.6 downloaded in less than 30 seconds or so.

I have given up on using the LiveCode Updater stack.  The download goes on 
forever and never seems to finish.

Re: [ANN] Release 9.6.6 RC-1

2021-12-22 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
It is nice to know that HyperCard stacks can still be opened.   I had opened a 
HyperCard stack of an application that I had created in LiveCode ~ 6.x and for 
the most part it worked,  A few fixes were needed and I was good to go.  That 
HyperCard stack was the basis for an LC application I am still updating.  There 
is still HyperTalk scripts from long ago hidden in various objects in my 
application.  I can usually tell by how I named my variables — no prefixes, 
that and using way too many unquoted literals.

Communication with future you with a message board

2021-12-22 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi all

I have been reading Alex Hughson’s thread "New user” renamed "Serial 
Communication with an I/O board (New user)” by Curry Kenworthy to make it 
easier for future users to find.

It makes me think of something that happened a few times with me.  I am trying 
to do something in LiveCode and I come up against a blocker.  I start searching 
the use-livecode list, the LiveCode Forums, and also general web searches.  
Finally I find my answer — exactly what I wanted.  Then I look at the author 
asking the original question or answering…  Martin Koob.  
臘‍♂️

So I am curious — am I the only one whose mind is going or have others run this 
mental recursive documentation loop?

Anyway  now when I am typing a question or a suggested answer I think I should 
put the salutation “Dear Future me.”.  In any case once the problem is solved I 
do a final email summarizing what the final solution was and I do make sure 
there are some good keywords in the text that I would probably search for in 
the future when I have forgotten ever even working on this problem this let 
alone how to solve it.

2021-12-22 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi Curry

Thanks.  I thought this would be cool to play around with one day but I would 
never remember where I saw it.  This will help an old brain.

It would make also make a good LiveCode Lesson.  Once Alex figures it all out 
and has it all working they can document the process and submit it as a 
LiveCode Lesson and thereby gain instant fame and fortune ... well at least the 
gratitude of those who follow afterward… maybe even themselves  (see more in my 
next email “Communication with future you with a message board”.)

Re: New MacBook Pro Display Notch

Hi

I saw a MacRumors.com  article about this issue. 
https://www.macrumors.com/2021/10/28/scale-to-fit-below-built-in-camera-setting-notch/
 


They gave another link to some recently released Apple documentation that 
explains to users how to enable the ‘Scale to fit below built-in camera’ mode 
that prevents your menu bar from being partially obscured by the notch.

How to adjust an app's settings to appear below the camera area on your 14-inch 
or 16-inch MacBook Pro
https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT212842 


This is something you can point your users who are encountering the problem.

Hi Ben

This is a change, they used to be there but then there was a policy change by 
LiveCode that was announced back in May


On May 6, 2021, at 7:25 AM, The LiveCode Team  wrote:


Policy change regarding old test releases
Dear Valued Customer,

I'm writing to let you know that in order to optimise space on our servers we 
are removing old test releases of LiveCode. This should not affect you, as 
there should be no reason to use these old releases anymore. All older stable 
releases will remain available, but old releases labelled "dp" or "rc" will be 
removed from your account and from the download pages on our servers. If you do 
already have one of these downloads, the licensing will continue to work with 
it, however I strongly advise you to move to using a stable release, these are 
test releases and not intended for general use.

We will of course continue to offer the rc and dp releases for our latest 
build/s whilst they are under development.

If you think this will affect you, please do feel free to reply to this email, 
we would be very interested to hear why you are using an older, unstable and 
unsupported release.

Re: LiveCode 10 - what are your thoughts on the new features?

2021-09-09 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi Heather

The mention of carrots was mine.  I agree with your logic “couple" is a fuzzy 
number which I am fine with (though when it comes to carrots themselves fuzzy 
is not good.)  Yesterday the carrots were very small and striving to be a 
sensible husband I chopped 5 up.  I of course I checked before chopping to make 
sure that was the correct amount.   I wonder if there is a difference between 
'a couple carrots' and "a couple OF carrots"?

Anyway I agree this carrot thread is getting close to going beyond the line of 
silliness and maybe should be banished from discussions on the list here along 
with that other orange food that may not be mentioned here that rhymes with 
please.

Have a good day all.

Martin.

Re: LiveCode 10 - what are your thoughts on the new features?

2021-09-08 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
This reminds me of the counting instructions for the Holy Hand Grenade of 
Antioch.
https://montypython.fandom.com/wiki/Holy_Hand_Grenade_of_Antioch


'First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to three, no 
more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of 
the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, 
excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number 
three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand 
Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in My sight, shall snuff 
it.' 

So could this also match the definition of ‘couple’ for counting things — 3 , 2 
if on the way to 3, but 1 one is not mentioned and 5 is right out.

Re: LiveCode 10 - what are your thoughts on the new features?

2021-09-08 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi Jacqueline

That’s funny, I was assuming that it was a male / female language usage issue.  
It would be odd if coders saw ‘couple’ not being an arbitrary number but one 
with some flexibility and not coders not.  (Although if your husband is also a 
coder that would blow that theory out of the water. )  I would think the 
opposite would be true.  The coders I would think would think arbitrary values 
instead of fuzzy variables.

Our disagreement over “couple” is the same as yours over “facts”… friendly, 
amusing and kind of yet not totally false.  eg.  asked to chop up a couple of 
carrots I will ask how many exactly. "Two" is the reply….. and then the 
“argument” starts.

Sad to hear that looking up the facts about “facts" ruined your ongoing 
argument about “facts”.  But maybe there are alternative facts that state 
otherwise and you can revive the discussion as to the meaning of “facts”.

LiveCode 10 - what are your thoughts on the new features?

2021-09-07 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi all.

There has been lots of discussion on the list and forums about the one part of 
Kevin’s announcement regarding the changes in licensing but nothing that I see 
on the other major part of the announcement — the new features coming in 
LiveCode 10.

> On Aug 31, 2021, at 12:53 PM, Kevin Miller CEO  wrote:

https://livecode.com/livecode-10-sneak-peek/

The major features listed on the page above are:

Brand New Web Deployment Experience usingWeb Assembly (WASM)
- I have no idea what WASM is.  There have always been complaints about 
web deployment in the past.  Do you think this will make a difference?

M1 Architecture Support
- Looking forward to this.  I am chomping on the bit to buy a new 
MacBook Pro with M1 as soon as they come out this fall.  Look forward to giving 
LiveCode 10 a spin on it.

Windows Player Media Foundation &
Windows Camera Media Foundation
- these two features are the ones that I am really waiting for.  My app 
records and plays video using the CameraControl and the Player respectively but 
the Mac version does so in .mp4 and the Windows version records and plays .wmv. 
 I had been researching different methods of converting from one format to the 
other when users shared their video projects over the web.  Then this was 
announced rendering that moot! This is a much better solution.  I am looking 
forward to giving the updated player and camera control a good workout on 
Windows.
-One question I have is whether a player can be part of a Web app with 
the new Web Deployment. To this point I don’t think you could but I have 
wondered if you could control an HTML5 video player elsewhere on the page 
outside of the LiveCode HTML5 web app.  Having video play directly in the Web 
app would be a much cleaner solution. I haven’t looked into this in a long time 
so once LC 10 is out I will do some more research on this.

Improved AcceleratedRendering on Mobile
- iOS and Android will be updated to use OpenGL3ES internally
- I haven’t developed for iOS or Android and don’t  know what OpenGL3ES 
is.  What do all you mobile developers think?

Mobile Widgets by LiveCode Factory
- now acquired by LiveCode Ltd. and will be integrated into LiveCode 10.
- again not currently developing for mobile but I understand getting 
native look, feel and performance has been an oft discussed topic. Hopefully 
this will resolve some of the issues LiveCode developers have had.

New Syntax in 10
Array Literals
Constant Expressions
Static Switch Optimization
Constant folding
Tail Expressions
- I am just reading them over trying to think of how having these might 
affect my code and my app.  Some promise speed improvements others flexibility 
in working with arrays and constants.  Does these make the language more 
complex or easier?

I am interested in what people have to say about these new features, especially 
in the areas I don’t have much experience in.

Anyway I am excited to see the first DP which is promised in the next couple of 
weeks.  My wife and I have an ongoing disagreement about the term 'couple of’ 
in terms of counting.  I say it means around 2 or 3ish.  She says it means 2. 
Further she says if you wanted to say 3 or 4 you would say ‘a few’.  So in this 
case I am hoping she is right and I am wrong and we do get the new DP in a 
couple of weeks and not a few weeks. :-)

Re: [ANN] Organize - A daily task manager

2021-08-26 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi Skip

The app looks great.  I will definitely download and try it once it is in the 
app store.

A couple comments from your YouTube demo:

First  I really like how you can create items by tapping in white space. It 
reduces the complexity of the interface.

Second is a suggestion regarding the showing and hiding of checked items.

You went to settings to do that.  I think that would be better if you could do 
that from the main interface, say with a toggle button for show and hide 
checked, or drop down “view” menu.

   View
Unchecked
Checked
All
•••

The ••• could be for the  ‘more…’ maybe that could open the settings or a 
dialog with other view options.

Re: MouseDoubleUp in a datagrid

2021-07-09 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi

I am interested in the answer to this too.   I wonder if is this something that 
you could use a frontScript for? I haven’t really used frontScripts so I am not 
quite sure whether this would work.  
The idea I thought of is could you have a mouseDoubleUp handler in the front 
script and have a condition as shown in the following pseudocode

if the target is your datagrid then
 call a handler that you wanted mouseDoubleUp handler to call, 
else
 pass mouseDoubleUp.  
end if 


 I would think that since the frontScript gets the mouseDoubleUp first it would 
handle it there before the selectionChanged messages are handled in the 
Datagrid itself.  Whats more if the target is the data grid and there is not a 
pass mouseDoubleUp command in the Lines of code after the if clause then 
mouseDoubleUp has been handled and that message will not make it to the 
DataGrid.Is that a correct understanding of how the two could be made to 
achieve there result that Bob Wants?

Re: LiveCode convert seconds to dateItems - year is out by 19?

2021-05-11 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi Keith

I just tried the following

on mouseup

   convert the seconds to dateitems

   put it

end mouseup

The result is 2021,5,11,7,52,5,3  So that is correct.

Where is the value in your tCreateDate variable from.  Maybe there was a 
miscalculation there.

Re: Problems with Multiple Monitors

2021-05-04 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi

I have found that when I arrange monitors on my MacBook Pro I can’t position 
the second monitor above the main monitor(the one with the menu bar).  If I do 
odd things happen.  Just so happens I that is the space that I have for a 
second monitor  is on a stand above the screen of my MacBook Pro.  So I had to 
position my second monitor to the left of my main monitor.  I am then able to 
work on LiveCode in either monitor.  The only thing I had to do was re-train my 
brain that moving my mouse left was actually moving it up to my second monitor. 
Now it is second nature.

It is a really odd workaround and if the bug ever got fixed and I did in fact 
go back to to having the monitor arrangement with the second monitor above the 
main monitor I would probably develop carpal tunnel syndrome or maybe tennis 
elbow or some other musculoskeletal disorder  from my mouse hand  skidding off 
the mouse pad and hitting the laptop every time I want to go to the second 
monitor sitting above my laptop.

Re: Simple Datagrid task?

2021-04-27 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Bill

I totally understand. I struggled with this a few months ago partly because it 
is counter intuitive that I couldn’t just enter text in a field in the DataGrid 
that I could edit and partly because I couldn’t figure out how to do it from 
the docs.  Finally I found the example stack and worked it through.  So I am 
happy to help people avoid the rut I had fallen into on this issue or help 
newbie’s avoid the rut.

Plus if I type it out here I might find just find it again when I forget how to 
do it in a couple of years.  That has happened more than once.  Look online for 
a solution to a problem, find the answer and then find that I had written it. 
:-(

Re: Simple Datagrid task?

2021-04-27 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi

I wanted to give you more of an explanation of how to get enter text in field 
to work. Just refreshing my own memory I had to go back to my project.  

So as Håkan said you have to first allow editing.   

Then you can’t just enter text into a cell and have it deal with it.  You have 
to use a Datagrid command EditTextField

Here is the handler I use in my project which I adapted from the DG7 form of 
the DGForms.zip file that you can download here:
https://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?f=7=20130



on mouseDoubleUp pMouseBtnNum

local theKey


-- Example of how to edit the contents of a field.

-- By passing the index of the record associated with copy of this template 
being displayed and

-- a key (array key) the data grid will automatically save the changes the user

-- makes and refresh the UI by calling FillInData and resizeControl.

if pMouseBtnNum is 1 then

 if the dgProps["allow editing"] of the dgControl of me then

  put the short name of the target into sEditedField

  switch sEditedField

   case "RaterComments"

   put "CriteriaComments" into theKey

   EditFieldText the long id of the target, the dgIndex of me, 
theKey

   break

case "title"

put "title" into theKey

EditFieldText the long id of the target, the dgIndex of me, 
theKey

break

   end switch

  end if

end if

pass mouseDoubleUp
end mouseDoubleUp


——

Hope this helps.

Hi David

If I understand what you want you could use the Segmented Control Widget to get 
what you want.

https://livecode.com/livecode-widgets-the-segmented-control/

It just has full ratings, i.e. whole stars however  in a comment to that 
tutorial Paul McClernan has a link to a "Five-Star rating system LiveCode 
Builder Widget has 10 states (half-stars)"
https://github.com/PaulMcClernan/community.livecode.widget.fivestars

I think this would do what you need.

You would need to install the widget in your IDE to use it.

Re: [ANN] New Book: Development Oriented Development

2021-03-19 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi Andre

I am enjoying your new book. It demystifies for me plug-ins and how to create 
them. My mystification creates anxiety around venturing into creating a plugin 
much less adding existing plugins to my IDE and configuring them.  After 
reading the first sections of your book that anxiety is dissipating.   

You advice to look for areas of friction in your workflow really relates to an 
experience I had recently.  For a new project I had to make lots of fields with 
lots of labels and changing the text of a label takes way longer than it 
should.  Finally, after years of grumbling to myself that this should be easier 
I created a handler that I added as a behaviour to a template label field.  
Basically it allows you to set the text of a label by double clicking with the 
browse tool on a text label field and then entering the text in an answer 
dialog. I could then option drag the label field template and then change its 
text with a simple double click. As a bonus I could set it to align left by 
holding the option + double clicking the label field. 

It worked ok speeding up that task but it was a handler incorporated in a 
specific project. I thought this should be incorporated into the IDE to really 
work as I intended but I wasn’t sure how I could do that. I had thoughts of 
frontscripts or backscripts or plugins in mind but I did not know how to work 
with any of these, and, due to the mystification factor which leads to anxiety 
which prevents me from trying new approaches I didn’t go any further with that. 
 Now after reading up to page 43 of your book I think that I should be able to 
create a plugin to add this feature to mould the IDE.

Now I am starting the section “What are your needs?” Well I already have my 
need in mind — a quick and easy way to set label field text.  My goal now is to 
create a plugin that will accomplish this.   Looking forward to learning how in 
the rest of your book. 

Martin Koob.

Hi David

Welcome, I think your question is totally appropriate here.

I occasionally have the same problem and I use Roger’s solution below.  You may 
already know this but a quick way to open the message box where you need to 
type the script to reposition the message box is to use the keyboard shortcut
Mac: command M
Win: alt M

For the last while  the tool bar has been staying nicely in place at the top of 
the screen.  Not sure what I did that made it stick again.
One thing to try so It stays permanently in place is in the ‘View’ menu of the 
IDE unchecking the ‘Tool bar text', and ‘Tool bar icons’ and then rechecking 
them again.

Spring 2021 xAPI Cohort starts this week -- How to Join -- Was: xAPI Cohort Resources & xAPI in LiveCode

2021-02-01 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi to any LiveCode users interested in deploying their solutions in a training 
environment  

You may have wanted to make your app available to educators but they need 
something that will integrate with their Learning Management System (LMS) or 
store learning activities in their Learning Record Store (LRS)  using the 
Experience API (xAPI).  
A group of LiveCoders has formed that will be joining the Spring 2021 xAPI 
Cohort to learn more about those technologies and work together as a team to 
see how they could be implemented using LiveCode.

On the xAPI cohort website https://xapichort.com  it 
describes the cohort as follows:

"The xAPI Learning Cohort is a free, vendor-neutral, 12-week learning-by-doing 
project-based
team learning experience about the Experience API. “

The Spring semester of xAPI cohort starts this week so we will have a pre 
meeting for LiveCoders and then there will be the initial session of the 
cohort.  See the details below.

LiveCoders Pre meeting
Tues Feb 2, 1:00 - 3:00  pm EST.
If you are interested and want to find out more or want to get involved we are 
having meeting for people interested on Tues Feb 2, 1:00 - 3:00  pm EST.  
Respond to this thread if you want to attend and we will send you the Zoom link.

Spring 2021 xAPI Cohort 
Thursday Feb 4 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

The first session of the the cohort will happen on Thursday Feb 4, 2021 from 
2:00 pm to 3:00 pm.  To attend and get access to the resources available sign 
up here: https://xapicohort.com/ .  
Also sign up to their Slack workspace https://xapi-cohort.slack.com/ 
 to get more information.  Once in the Slack 
Channel you can join the  #discuss-dev-livecode channel.

Hi All,

I am sending this out for Brian Duck.   We are trying to see when we're all 
available for xAPI in LiveCode (Week 4 -5). 

Please visit
https://www.when2meet.com/?10848261-ZWeng

The Spring 2021 xAPI  Cohort starts next week with its first session on 
Thursday Feb 4, 2021 ( think the time of the session is 2:00 pm EST (-5 UTC) I 
will check and send out a confirmation) so if you are interested register for

Hi List.


I didn't mean to  spam everyone with this.  I did not notice I was conversing 
with David G  thru the use-LiveCode list till  just now.  We can take this 
offline.

But since you now have the links you can do a trial of my software.  Curious 
what people think.

Hi David

I have attached a manual for VideoLinkwell.  It walks through the different 
features that the app has.  
It is for an older version (3.2) but mostly applicable. I haven’t had time to 
update it yet.


I have also attached the most recent Mac version of Videolinkwell - 3.5.2.  If 
you need the windows version I can send it soon.  It is done but I am having 
trouble with code signing it.  I got it to work for the earlier versions but 
won’t work now.   Not sure what I am doing differently now than before.

To try out the software you can start a trial on videolinkwell.com to get your 
login credentials then you will use those credentials to log into the 
VideoLinkwell software.

If you want we can do a Zoom session and I could do a demo for you.

Hi

I am back to 3G.  So go on without me.  It is more frustration for you than it 
is worth. 

I will watch the video. 

If you want to see and try my SaaS Product VideoLinkwell go to 
VideoLinkwell.com.  

Let me know when the next meeting is.  Thanks.

Re: Cmi5 eLearning Standard in LiveCode MEETING TODAY AT 1 PM EST

2021-01-18 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi. 

Sorry I am on a train and trying to connect with my phone with cell and we are 
goin thru an area with 3G.  

If we get back to LTE territory I will try again. 

I did hear a bit of what David was saying about his use case with playing 
videos at different starting points.  

I am interested in seeing how xAPI and/or Cmi5 can be used to store a learning 
record that contains a number of video time points in a video of a student’s 
work including current time, start time and end time. I have the app that 
records this info. Next step is to create  xAPI statements. 

Another comment I had was that in the Fall 2020 xAPI cohort I joined team 
#audio-video
Hoping to work on this idea.  This team worked on this in past cohorts so there 
is work we could build on if we took this on as a project.  

Can someone post the above to meeting chat?

Hopefully I can join back in soon.  

If not I will watch the recording. Let me know when the next meeting is. 

Martin

Windows 10 app launch error - 'failed to load External: tsNet'

2021-01-11 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi

I have a GLX Framework based application that I am trying to create an 
installer for Windows 10 using Inno Setup as explained here.
https://revolution.screenstepslive.com/s/revolution/m/10695/l/563371-signing-installers-you-create-with-inno-setup

This is the second Windows installer I am making.  The first time I made an 
installer for my first version of this app on Windows ultimately worked (after 
a bit of trial and error) and now I am using the same basic script settings to 
make the new installer for an update to my application.

In the LiveCode standalone application settings dialog Windows tab I selected 
Windows 64 bit so it is a 64 bit application.

The folder layout of the application is as follows
myApp.exe
->Externals
-mergJSON-x64.dll
-revxml.dll
-tsNet-x86_64.dll

Using Inno Script Studio I compile the script and that works with no problem.  
- I have a code signing certificate so the code is signed using the sign tool
- I looked at the “creating setup files message and I see that the external 
tsNet external is loaded.

Still when I try to launch my application I get a dialog titled ‘Initialization 
error’.  Its error message is ‘failed to load external: tsNet’

I thought it might be looking for the 32 bit version of the tsNet external, 
tsNet-x86.dll  so I added that to the Externals folder in addition to the 64 
bit version that I already had before running the compiler again.   Same result.


I found a similar issue in the forums but the fix was to update to the stable 
version of LiveCode 9.5.0. 

http://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?f=7=33005=200295#p200295

I am using LiveCode 9.6.0 so unless there has been a regression that should not 
be the issue.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Best regards, 

Martin Koob

Re: Cmi5 eLearning Standard in LiveCode

2021-01-11 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi

Brian got me involved in the fall 2020 semester of the xAPI cohort.   I worked 
on a team that created a service to generate xAPI statements from a Zoom 
meeting using the Zoom API.   I learned a lot about the Zoom API, web hooks and 
xAPI statements.  

I have already signed up for the spring 2021 semester.

I would like to have a Zoom call for LiveCoders interested in this initiative.

The xAPI Cohorts have as one of the main activities projects which are worked 
on by teams.  The projects are then presented at the end of the semester.  
I joined Team Zoom last semester to work with people who were already involved 
in working with xAPI in diffferent capacities, programmers, education 
designers, educators to help be learn more about xAPI in general.  This did not 
have a LiveCode focus.

I worked with Brian’s team, Team MakeyMakey a bit on his project which had some 
focus on LiveCode.

One think I would like to see come out of this eventually is a LiveCode Library 
for generating xAPI statements and sending them to a Learning Record Store.  My 
ultimate goal is to have my application use such a library create such 
statements and integrate with a LRS and a LMS.   Possible projects would be a 
good topic for a pre semester Zoom meeting.

Re: play command and wav file

2020-12-19 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi

You can use an audio clip.

First import the wave file as an audio clip into the stack.

Under File menu select “Import as Control…” 

then in the dropdown menu select “…audio file”

i.e. I imported a file called  “friday.wav”

This will create an audio clip in the binary stack.

It will have the same name as the wav file you imported.

Then when you need to play the clip use the following line of code: 
Play audioclip "friday.wav"

Martin

Re: Some sad news

2020-12-04 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
This is sad news.

Hermann  was a LiveCode Pioneer and such a great resource to LiveCode users and 
LiveCode itself pushing at the boundaries of what you can do with LiveCode and 
HTML 5 and as Heather mentioned pushed livecode staff to realize more of its 
potential.  

He made so much code freely available to other users showing us possibilities  
we may not have realized and was always ready to assist other users with 
questions on the list.  I am glad to see that legacy is being preserved.

This reminds me of another LiveCode pioneer Mark Smith who passed away too 
young.  His work has been preserved as well.
http://marksmith.on-rev.com/revstuff/
http://www.pdslabs.net/the-mark-smith-collection/

I think it would be good to have a way to commemorate people like Hermann and 
Mark with something like an annual online  lecture or award presented annually 
to other pioneers or contributors to the LiveCode in their honour.

Moving files to Windows' Recycle Bin in LiveCode -- is it possible?

2020-11-24 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi.

On the Mac I have a handler that can move a folder to the trash by using an 
AppleScript that I call with a shell command.

I have a custom property of the stack “Scripts" cDeleteMacFolderScript that 
contains a template script

tell application "Finder"

delete "**foldertodelete**"

end tell

Then I have the following handler

on deletemacOSfolder folderMacpath

put the cDeleteMacFolderScript  of stack  “Scripts" into thescript

replace "**foldertodelete**" with folderMacpath in thescript

do thescript as applescript

end deletemacOSfolder


It works a charm, run it and the folder ends up in the Trash Easy-peasy.


I have been trying to do the same thing with Windows and not having any luck.

First Challenge was finding the path to the recycle bin.   Using 
SpecialfolderPath() to get the path for the Recycle Bin did not work.  See the 
bug report here. https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=22995 


I did manage write a script using the Windows shell commands to get a path to 
the user’s Recycle Bin and then move a directory to it using the LiveCode 
rename command.  The folder is actually moved to the user's Recycle Bin but 
when you Open the Recycle Bin in the Windows Explorer GUI you don’t see the 
folder.   
Here is the script I used.

on mouseUp pButtonNumber

answer folder "Select the folder to move to Recycle Bin folder."

put it into tFoldertoRecycle

if platform() is "win32" or platform() is "win64" then

MoveFolderToRecycleBin tFolderToRecycle

end if

end mouseUp


command MoveFolderToRecycleBin pFolderToMove

put SpecialFolderPath_RecycleBinFolder() into tRecycleBinPath

replace "/" with "\" in tRecycleBinPath

set the itemDelimiter to "\"

put the last item of pFolderToMove into tFolderName

put tRecycleBinPath & "\" & tFolderName into tRecycleBinPath

put pFolderToMove into line 1 of field 1

put tRecycleBinPath   into line 2 of field 1

rename folder pFolderToMove to tRecycleBinPath

end MoveFolderToRecycleBin


function SpecialFolderPath_RecycleBinFolder

put shell ("whoami /user") into tUserInformation

set the itemDelimiter to space

put item 2 of line 7 of tUserInformation into tUserSID

put "C:\$Recycle.Bin\" & tUserSID into tUserRecycleBinPath

return tUserRecycleBinPath

end SpecialFolderPath_RecycleBinFolder


















You can see that the folder was actually moved there by using the Windows 
Command Prompt program.   If you type:

C:\> cd \$Recycle.Bin
C: \$Recycle.Bin> dir /s /a

You will get a listing of the contents of the directory and the subdirectories 
including the one that contains the files in the logged in user’s recycle bin.  
- files or folders the user dragged there in the GUI are there (but their file 
names are not the same as their actual names)
- folders I moved there using the script above are also there (their folder 
names are the same as they were in their original location).

I have read a lot of posts and documentation on the Recycle Bin and know far 
more than I ever wanted to know about it but it seems that simply moving a file 
to the users directory for the user’s Recycle Bin does not actually put it in 
the “RecycleBin" as seen in the Windows Explorer GUI.  I found a post that says 
that here.

https://superuser.com/questions/1520290/how-to-access-another-windows-10-installations-recycle-bin-files-on-a-partition

This folder (Recycle Bin)  is a special folder, because if you double-click the 
folder within Explorer, it will open the Recycle Bin program, rather than show 
the contents of that folder. As a result, it will show you all files deleted in 
your current Windows Installation, and not what is actually inside that folder.

I don’t see any other way of Recycling a folder, or a file for that matter 
using the shell short of buying and installing one of a couple of utility 
programs that popped up in some of my searches. I can’t expect users to do that.

I know you can delete a folder and its contents using the revDeleteFolder 
Command.  This removes the folder and files instantly.   I was hoping there was 
a way to just move them the Recycle Bin but it does not appear to be possible 
from shell. However the fact that there are utilities that do it mean there 
must be some way programmatically.

Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this?

Thanks

Re: Script Editor freezes in Windows 10 (was Can't edit scripts in DataGrid group in Windows 10)

2020-10-23 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi everyone.

Thanks for all the suggestions.  I tried them all but no joy.

I figured out what caused it.   I am using Monte’s lcVCS plugin to keep the 
project  in bitbucket and I was trying to work on it on the Mac and Windows by 
making changes on the Mac and then updating the stacks by exporting to lcVCS, 
committing and pushing the changes to bitBucket and then on the Windows Machine 
fetching the changes and pulling them to the repo on my Windows machine and 
then use lcVCS to create stacks from files.   I recently finished a branch and 
was merging it back into my version  branch on the Mac.   When I tried to fetch 
the changes on Windows there were lots of conflicts.   I don’t really 
understand git process really well for merging etc so I kind of hacked away at 
it till I got the two repos back in sync with the origin so in the process I 
must have ended up corrupting some of the scripts in the stack so they would 
not load. The stack would open and run properly which was odd…

So to fix it just zipped up the version on my Mac, Copied it over to the PC and 
opened it there and it worked.   So now I am back in business.

Thanks for for your time in responding.  Your responses got me to look at the 
problem from a few different angles till I could see the light through the 
cracks.

Martin.

Another bit of info regarding the length of script where this happens.

I have been going through the project browser trying to open small scripts then 
opening those with more and more lines.   I found that a script with 53 lines 
opens, a script with 62 lines freezes.

anyway.  Down with this for tonight.  Hope someone has some ideas as to what 
might be going on and how to solve it.

Hi again,

Sorry just re-read my previous email and realized it is not clear.

I meant to say that  is that I get the same issue where the IDE stops 
responding when I try to edit the main stack script too.  So it is not a 
strictly DataGrid issue.

Script Editor freezes in Windows 10 (was Can't edit scripts in DataGrid group in Windows 10)

2020-10-22 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi

Just to follow up.  It is not just happening in a DataGrid group script.  I 
just opened a main stack script.  It has almost 600 lines.

Something Odd going on.  I am just new to using LiveCode on Windows as I am now 
working on an application  for release on Mac and Windows.  However I have 
edited many of the scripts in this project before and have never seen this.  

Again if anyone has ideas as to what might be happening or how to trouble shoot 
that would really be appreciated.

Re: IDE Hang When Exiting. (was Can't edit scripts in DataGrid group in Windows 10)

2020-10-22 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi Ralph

I generally experience IDE hang when exiting in all versions of LC 9.x i have 
used so far (using a Mac however). I haven’t had time to delve into figuring 
out a recipe I could report as a bug. I just force quit and relaunched 
LiveCode.  That is just part of my work flow now.  Sometimes it does quit with 
no hang.  Some things I have tried is closing the script editor, or close and 
remove from memory before quitting.  I still don’t get consistent results from 
this though.

It happens with various stacks I work on from simple to complex.  I thought it 
may be an extension I have installed that ties up the IDE during the quitting 
process.  I plan one day to remove all extensions to a bare minimum and see if 
it still happens.

Interesting idea about the breakpoint.  Is it a ‘red dot’ soft breakpoint or 
hard coded ‘breakpoint’ in a line of the script?

The behaviour of the soft breakpoints I have found inconsistent.   Sometimes 
they don’t trigger unless I have the script open for at least the first 
breakpoint I want to trigger. Again I have never really tried to get to the 
cause, just did workarounds.

I probably have way to many breakpoints left sitting around.  Maybe I should 
just delete all breakpoints and start fresh.

Thanks for the idea.  Maybe that will solve the other problem I am having with 
the DataGrid.

Can't edit scripts in DataGrid group in Windows 10

2020-10-22 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi all

Maybe this is not good practice but I have DataGrids with script in the group 
that contains the DataGrid in addition to the behaviour script of the DataGrid. 
  So to edit the script in the DataGrid group I just select the Datagrid group 
I right click on the DataGrid and select the ‘Edit Script’ menu item.   

This works fine on the mac.I just tried this on Windows 10 with LiveCode 
9.6 and when I try to open the same DataGrid following the same process the 
script editor opens but it does not load the script.  In fact LiveCode becomes 
unresponsive. The script editor dims as if disabled and the cursor when 
hovering over the script editor or any other LiveCode windows  is the hour 
glass cursor.

If I click on the ‘x’ to close the LiveCode project I get the dialog that says.

LiveCode for Windows is not responding
If you close the program, you might lose information.
—>Close the Program
—>Wait for the program to respond.

Eventually I just select ‘Close the program’ since the program never responds.

I created a test stack with just a DataGrid on it and a button and opened the 
group script and was able to add a handler and then save it and reopen it so it 
does work in a simple scenario.

In my application I have two dataGrids that have code in the group script.  On 
has 290 lines the other has about 480 lines.   So it seems the longer code is a 
contributing factor.

Has anyone else experienced this?  

It the problem that you are not supposed to have script in the DataGrid’ Group 
script and rather put it all in the DataGrid's behaviour?


Thanks in advance.

Re: oAuth2 seems to log in successfully but the oAuth2 dialog/browser does not disappear, have to click cancel

2020-08-28 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi Brian

Thanks for the explanation of the process.  That seems to be what is happening. 
 I assume that the difficulty implementing it is that the native app would not 
have a recognized SSL certificate for the https connection.  Is that right?

I don’t fully understand the oAuth2 process so this is an uneducated workaround 
idea so please excuse me if the following idea/question is totally off base. 

If the application was not a native Desktop app but a web app would requiring 
an https redirect URI not be a problem since the website  site the web app was 
hosted on could have a SSL certificate so you could have a https redirect URI?

 My application has a cloud backend API written in LiveCode server.  The site  
has an SSL certificate so https URIs could point to it.  
- If I had to use an https redirect URI could it point to my website and then 
have the listener there?  There still would need to be a way to identify the 
user’s request with the server’s response and I am not sure how that would work.

- could I make a HTML5 standalone in LiveCode server on my cloud site. backend 
that I would open in a browser window in the desktop that would then, on 
loading, just  connect to the oAuth2 URI where the user would enter their 
credentials, The authorization would take place between the HTML5 app and the 
oAuth2 site with the URI being the on my cloud site.   Then the token could be 
returned to the native app from the HTML5 app.

Again these questions are based on a limited understanding of how this kind of 
authorization works so don’t laugh too hard. ;-)

oAuth2 seems to log in successfully but the oAuth2 dialog/browser does not disappear, have to click cancel

2020-08-27 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi 

In my project to make a library for connecting to an LMS I am trying to use 
oAuth2 to authorize with a Brightspace LMS  instance from a Mac Desktop App.   
The oAuth2 dialog/browser appears I enter the credentials and then the login 
appears to succeed i.e. the LMS's home page opens in the dialog/browser.  
However the dialog does not  close so I have to click the ‘Cancel’ button.  So 
the result returned by the oAuth2 command is “cancel’ and there is nothing in 
the ‘it’ variable.

My redirect URI is https://127.0.0.1:54256 .  The LMS 
service requires https.  LiveCode’s oAuth only allows http for the redirect 
URI.  Could that be the issue?

My guess is that once a response is received at the redirect URI then 
LiveCode’s oAuth2 dialog would close. 
Then the value of the token would be in the ‘it’ variable.
Is that the case?

The other issue may be that I don’t have the correct token URL parameter for 
the oAuth2 command.  I am still checking into that.

Any suggestions on how to get this working?

Re: Integrating Desktop or mobile application with LMS using LTI 1.3

2020-08-05 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi all.

Thanks for the responses.  I am still actively working on this.  

I have hired a summer intern. Molly,  to work on this.  She has been getting up 
to speed on LiveCode and LTI 1.3 and now she is turning her attention to 
working on a proof of concept stack to connect with an LMS system and send 
commands and receive responses and process them.  

Indeed we have found that LTI 1.3 is supported by many LMS’s to varying degrees 
and some still just support LTI 1.1 currently. (There is a LTI 2.0 but that is 
a deprecated standard. 
http://www.imsglobal.org/lti-security-announcement-and-deprecation-schedule)  
The LMSs we have looked at also have their own APIs which seem to have features 
beyond what the LTI feature set is but still looking at this. 

I am not at the point yet where I can open source it and I am not really sure 
how to go about that. (Don’t know how I would sell it either but probably not 
much of a market for it.)  I have my main app on GIT using Monte’s lcVCS but if 
I did want to go open source with this library I want to to do something 
simpler like a script only stack library and maybe do a Demo app based on 
Trevor’s Levure App Framework 
https://livecode.com/products/livecode-platform/levure/ to make it easier to 
use git.   Does this sound like a good approach?

We are also looking for a way to access a sandbox with one of the LMS’s to test 
the proof of concept app against.  If anyone has info on that that would be 
appreciated.

Hi Alex

You could use the owner of the control in conjunction with the name of the 
control to distinguish between the two graphic’s named ‘R’.

I did that  for the  simple case in your example  but may not work with 
something more complex.

I created a stack with the same hierarchy of graphics and groups and using the 
following scripts in a button I placed on the card I can distinguish between  
graphic A - R and B - R.


on mouseup

ask “enter owner name/control name/control colour"

put it into tResponse 

set the itemdelimiter to "/"

put item 1 of tResponse into tOwner

put item 2 of tResponse into tControl

put item 3 of tResponse into tControlColour

put findTargetControl(tOwner, tControl) into tTargetControl

set the backgroundcolor of control tTargetControl of group "A" to tControlColour

end mouseup


function findTargetControl pOwner, pControl

put the number of controls  of group "A" into tIndex

repeat with tControl = 1 to tIndex

if the short name of control tControl of group "A" = pControl then

if the short name of the owner of control tControl of group "A" = pOwner then

exit repeat

end if

end if

end repeat

return tControl

end findTargetControl

Re: Congrats to everyone on success of the Covid-19 -- LiveCode Impact Fund Campaign.

2020-07-17 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi Sean,

I hadn’t heard of ‘campaign snipers’ but it sounded like a thing, maybe some 
new lingo the young folk say about a type of people involved in crowd funding 
campaign so I searched it up. (Do they still say ‘search it up’?)

'campaign snipers' gets lots of Call of Duty results

'crowd funding campaign snipers' gets lots of results for online fundraisers 
for people who were/are snipers or sports teams named Snipers.

So not a thing?

It sounds like it should be a thing.  What is the definition?

Congrats to everyone on success of the Covid-19 -- LiveCode Impact Fund Campaign.

2020-07-16 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi.

Another successful campaign — 100% funded.   Congrats to Kevin and all the 
folks at LiveCode and thanks to all the fellow members of the community who 
chipped in to reach the goal.

We always seem to make it at the end of these campaigns..  It is like and 
auction and it seems there are a number of people who stand at the sidelines 
till the last few days and then the serious bidding starts, people get excited 
and may end up buying a thing or two they hadn’t intended to to see it go over 
the edge.  Always an interesting phenomenon to watch from this side.  I wonder 
if this is unique to the LiveCode community.   It would be an interesting study 
for some graduate student in business or psychology.

Re: Quick question: player object callbacks still working?

2020-06-28 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi

I have an app that uses player callbacks and I am now using LC 9.6 to work on 
it and the callbacks work fine.

The callbacks, duration, currentTime and other movie time properties are in 
timescale which is intervals/second as you said.


I just created a small stack and did a basic test of callbacks  and it worked.
-create a new stack
-drag a player to the card
-drag a single line field to the card
-put the following code in the card's script

---
local sMovieScale

on mouseup

put the timescale of player 1 into sMovieScale

set the callbacks of player 1 to (sMovieScale * 0), "secondcount" & CR & \

(sMovieScale * 1), "secondcount" & CR & \

(sMovieScale * 2), "secondcount" & CR & \

(sMovieScale * 3), "secondcount"

end mouseup


on secondcount pCallbackTime

put (pCallbackTime / sMovieScale) && "seconds" into field 1

end secondcount

-
- click on the card to set the callbacks
- play the movie to see if the seconds are displayed in the field.

See if that works.

If it does then maybe it is something with how you create your callback list.

You can see if the callbacks are actually set by with the line ‘ in the message 
box

  put the callbacks of player “yourPlayer

Create expanding field editor in LiveCode 9.6

2020-06-21 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi

I am trying to create a data grid where the height of the row expands as the 
user types in the row and adds new lines.  


I have managed to have the data grid row resize when the data is loaded  or the 
data is refreshed with the following handler
in the behaviour script for the row.

on LayoutControl pControlRect, pWorkingRect

## Expand field to fill in available width

put the rect of field "Comments" of me into tVariableHeightTextFieldRect

put item 3 of pControlRect -5 into item 3 of tVariableHeightTextFieldRect

set the rect of field "JudgesComments" of me to tVariableHeightTextFieldRect


## Resize field height to fit content

put item 2 of tVariableHeightTextFieldRect + the formattedheight of field 
"Comments" of me \

into item 4 of tVariableHeightTextFieldRect

set the rect of field "Comments" of me to tVariableHeightTextFieldRect


## Update the bounding rect to match total height

## that you want this row to have

put item 4 of tVariableHeightTextFieldRect into item 4 of pControlRect


## Resize Row to take in text field height

set the rect of graphic "Background" of me to pControlRect

end LayoutControl


Using this when I set the dgData of the DataGrid the row height is set based on 
the formatted height of the “comments” field.

However this does not work dynamically while typing.

I found an answer to this question on stack overflow by LiveCode’s own Monte 
Goulding.
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15262660/how-do-i-create-an-expanding-field-editor-in-a-livecode-datagrid/62499552#62499552
 


However I wasn’t sure if this still works given that it says to copy the script 
of the field editor behaviour button from the revDataGridLibrary stack.

In LiveCode 9.6 there isn't a revDataGridLibrary stack with a field editor 
behavior button. In LiveCode version 8 the IDE started to be refactored with 
the behaviour buttons on binary stacks changed to script only stacks. 
https://livecode.com/script-only-stacks/

Now, I see there is a script only stack 
"RevDataGridLibraryBehaviorsFieldEditorButtonBehavior".

So instead of copying the button I created a new button on the card with the 
row template and copied the script from the script only stack with the Field 
editor Button’s  b ehaviour to it and then added the code above to that 
button's script.

I then commented out the changes that I made to the layoutControl handler above 
to make sure that didn’t interfere with Monte’s solution.

That did not work.   

Monte’s solutions talks about a field editor being created and used while 
editing the text.   Is this still done in LiveCode 9.6?

If anyone has any suggestions of how to resized a row dynamically while user 
adds lines to a field that would be great.

Also I am trying to update the dgData of the DataGrid and add the new data 
typed by the user, but I can’t get that working either.

Thanks in advance for any help.


Martin Koob


BTW I don’t understand how Stack Overflow works.   I posted this question in 
response to Monte’s answer and it got deleted.  
https://stackoverflow.com/a/62499552/12863578 "This post is hidden. It was 
deleted 3 hours ago by Bhargav Rao♦”.  I thought it was a legitimate question 
relating to the answer,  basically ‘has this answer changed given a new OS?",   
I even provided a link to an article by Mark W explaining the change in the 
move to Script only Stacks in the IDE. I find it a very unfriendly place.   So 
back here to the friendly environment of the use-livecode list.

Integrating Desktop or mobile application with LMS using LTI 1.3

2020-05-25 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi list

I have been researching how to integrate a desktop application created with 
LiveCode with a learning Management system (LMS) like Brightspace by D2L, 
Moodle, Canvas etc.  Last time I looked at this SCORM was the standard with 
TinCan( aka xAPI) as a potential successor.   This time around I found those 
seem to have been  superseded by LTI 1.1  going to LTI 1.3.

In the documents I have found I see that one of the advantages of LTI 1.3 is 
that it can be used with desktop and mobile apps.  LTI 1.1 only worked with web 
based applications.

" Mobile Ready—The model is independent of web browsers, a better solution for 
server-to-server, native desktop and mobile applications.”
https://www.imsglobal.org/why-platforms-and-tools-should-adopt-lti-13 


I am looking for examples of people doing this but have not found any online.(I 
don’t want to spend time on idly ddl  I looks like it would be possible to use 
it in an LiveCode application.  It uses oAuth 2 for authentication and JSON for 
messages both of which are available on the the latest version of LiveCode.

First I just want to confirm it has been done for a desktop application in 
general so I know that is a viable approach for integrating an App into an LMS.

Second I wonder if people have done it using LiveCode.

Thanks

Re: OT: How to graph a specific data set?

2020-05-05 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi Paul

Just looking at the data I think a 3D chart like this image would be good.  

https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Wolfgang_Effelsberg/publication/221453979/figure/fig3/AS:305503222681602@144984905/A-visualization-with-load-distribution-bar-chart_Q320.jpg
Mountain background would be optional I think :-).

You could conditionally colour code the bars as well as Bill suggested to make 
correlated intersections stand out (especially if you have a large range)  i.e. 
all 0 intersections are a black or white dot, all 1 intersections are red, 2 
intersections are orange, 3 intersections are yellow, 4 intersections are green 
and so on.

Re: system date

2020-05-04 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
OK I opened the 'Language and Region' settings panel and clicked on the 
‘Advanced’ button and then clicked on the Tab for ‘Dates’

There is a field with a setting for “Short”  which was 2020-01-05.  I replaced 
the hyphens with slashes.

I had to quit and relaunch LiveCode for the change to take effect.  After I had 
done that the command 'put the system date’ returns '2020/05/04’

If I click 'Restore Defaults' in the ‘Dates' tab of the advanced 'Language and 
Region' settings panel my short date format goes back to 2020-05-04.

Can "answer file with type" show more than one file type at a time?

2020-05-04 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi 

I have the following in an app to for a user to select a video file.

 answer file "Select the Movie." with (the tDefaultRecordingFolder of stack 
"preferences") with type "Quicktime Movie files|mov|Moov" or type "MPEG 4 Movie 
Files|mp4,m4v|mpg4"

The resulting dialog presents a a pop up menu on the file opening dialog two 
items "Quicktime Movie Files" and "MPEG 4 Movie Files”

I would rather that the user not have to do the extra step of selecting the 
movie types from the pop up menu.  Sometimes user get frustrated that the video 
they want to open is shown as disabled but they don’t realize they need to 
select the other file type from the pop up menu.

Is it possible  put two different file types without using the ' or type' so 
there is not a pop up menu and both QuickTime and MPEG 4 movie files are 
enabled in the dialog at the same time ?

I have tried doing the types as a list but the script editor flags it as a 
syntax error.

 answer file "Select the Movie." with (the tDefaultRecordingFolder of stack 
"preferences") with type "Quicktime Movie files|mov|Moov”,  "MPEG 4 Movie 
Files|mp4,m4v|mpg4"

Thanks.

Re: Most obscure HC question

Hi

I posted this but then it bounced back because the message was too large.

Trying again posting as plain text.


--

I looked this up in my Hypercard Script Language Guide

If you could get at the stack the script to set the window full size would be

 set the rect of cd window to the screenRect

But you probably know this and probably can’t hack into the standalone to edit 
the scripts.

Looking in the HyperCard reference manual for 2.3.5 and I see these two 
sections Moving and resizing the card window and Working with large cards that 
seems to have the solution to fit your needs.

I found that these are also in that site.
https://cancel.fm/stuff/share/HyperCard_Reference_1.pdf  so It should work for 
HyperCard 1.0 too


Hope this works

Martin
Moving and resizing the card window

Each HyperCard stack opens in a window. A HyperCard window always displays only 
one card at a time. This section explains how to change the size of a card 
window and move it around on the screen.

A HyperCard window is different from a standard Macintosh window in that it has 
neither scroll bars nor a visible size box.

Moving a card window

You move a HyperCard window around on the screen the same way you move any 
Macintosh window—by dragging its title bar.

Chapter 1: Using HyperCard 1-35



Resizing a card window

You can easily change the size of a card window. Resizing the card window 
doesn’t change the size of the card; it only changes how much of the card you 
can see. If you make the card window smaller than the card, you see only part 
of the card. You can see the entire card, if your screen is large enough, by 
making the card window the same size as the card. (The next section, “Viewing 
Large Cards,” explains how to view cards that are larger than your screen.)

To change the size of the card window, you can either resize the card window 
directly or resize it via the Scroll window.

To resize a card window directly, follow these steps:

• Pressx-Shift-E.
A size box appears in the lower-right corner of the window.

• Drag the size box to resize the window:

When you release the mouse button, the size box disappears. If you want to 
resize the window several times in succession, x-drag the size box until the 
window is the size you want it.

❖ Note: You can’t make the card window larger than the card itself. ❖ To resize 
a card window by using the Scroll window, follow these steps:

1. Choose Scroll from the Go menu (or press x-E). The Scroll window appears.


1-36 Chapter 1: Using HyperCard

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

2. Drag from any edge or corner of the rectangle (or the blank region, if 
there’s no rectangle) inside the Scroll window.

When you move the pointer over the edges and corners of the rectangle, it 
becomes a double-headed arrow. Drag with the double-headed arrow to resize the 
card window.

  
Resizing the card window vertically

n

The rectangle represents the card window.

When you resize this rectangle, the card window is resized.

To make the card window the same size as the card, you can either double-click 
inside the Scroll window, or click the zoom box of the card window. (If the 
card is larger than your screen, the card window becomes about the same size as 
the screen.)

To hide the Scroll window, click its close box or press x-E.

  
Resizing the card window diagonally

Chapter 1: Using HyperCard 1-37

 

Working with large cards

When you’re working with a stack whose cards are larger than the screen, you 
can see only a portion of a card at a time. To look at other parts of a card 
that is larger than the screen, you can use either of the following techniques:

• Press x-Shift-E and then drag the card around using the hand pointer 
( ). The pointer turns into the hand when it is over the card. When you release 
the mouse button, the hand disappears. To move around the card several times in 
succession, press and hold the x key until you’re finished.

• Open the Scroll window by choosing Scroll from the Go menu, or by 
pressing x-E. Then use the Scroll window to scroll to other parts of the card.

To scroll to other parts of the card, drag from the middle of the rectangle.

The pointer becomes a hand when it’s in the middle of the rectangle.

❖ You can work with small windows as well.
techniques to view any card when the window is smaller than the card. (“Moving 
and Resizing the Card Window” in Chapter 1 explains how to resize the card 
window.) ❖

To limit the scrolling to either horizontal or vertical movement, hold down the 
Shift key while you drag.

Re: mergAV Select specific rear camera

2020-04-30 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi Andrew.

I haven’t used it on iOS but this is what you need to do on Mac OS X to use 
internal or external cameras.

To choose a particular camera use 

merAVCamSet “camera” , tCameraID

So or your case using iOS I think you can use just “rear camera” as the 
tCameraID

merAVCamSet“camera”, “rear camera”

See the dictionary for details.


For Mac OS X there is a bit more to do first you have to check to see what 
cameras are available and find their device IDs are: 

merAVCamGet “Video Devices” 

You also have to check the audio devices it you want to switch both your video 
and audio sources.

merAVCamGet “Audio Devices” 
If you are using  DV cams which used FireWire as the connector and include both 
Video and Audio together you need to use “Muxed devices” as the param

merAVCamGet “Muxed Devices” 

See the dictionary for details on how the camera info is returned.

Once you have retrieved the video and audio device IDs you set the camera that 
will be used and the microphone with the same merAVCamSet  command and use the 
device IDs you just retrieved.
merAVCamSet “camera”, pCameraID

merAVCamSet “microphone”, pAudioID


I agree with Devin though it is better to switch to the new cameraControl. It 
will be the video and audio capture technology supported going forward. I have 
transitioned to it so I can deploy my application on Windows. I would use the 
LC 9.6  version as there were bugs in the 9.5.1 version that are fixed in 
LC9.6.   I haven’t tried it on IOS though so you should see if that works.

Re: Quick IDE question

Hi Graham

Glad it worked.

Getting the decorations and dragability back is just a matter of getting the 
stack rect within the rect of the screen.

LiveCode IDE parts sometimes get a mind of their own and set out a wanderin’ — 
who knows why.  Setting their loc to the screenloc will put them right in the 
centre of the screen so you can deal with them there.

Re: Quick IDE question

Hi Craig

The script editor is a stack just like any other so what you can do to a stack 
you can do to it.

To find the name of it you can type the following into the Message Box:

put the openstacks

That will show a list in the message box of all the stacks open including the 
stack you are working on, here “My great app” and all the UI currently opened 
UI stacks.

Message Box
revNewScriptEditor 1
My great app
revPropertyInspector 1
revInspector
revTools
Improve LiveCode Handler Finder
revMenuBar
com.livecode.palette.autocomplete.completions


If you have more than one SE or property inspector it numbers them.

i.e..


1. open new Script in a new window
2. open a property inspector for a second object

3. Type in message box "put the openstacks"

New listing

Message Box
revPropertyInspector 2
revInspector
My great app
revTools
revNewScriptEditor 1
revNewScriptEditor 2
Improve LiveCode Handler Finder
revMenuBar
revPropertyInspector 1
com.livecode.palette.autocomplete.completions

from the list of open stacks you can find the stack names so you can set their 
properties.

You can set stack properties like loc rect, height, etc.   


You could make a small stack with buttons that set all your UI elements where 
you want them for each of your use cases and have them all fly to their 
respective positions and sizes.   Maybe someone has made a plugin like that.

[OT] Banks, Governments looking for COBOL programmers

2020-04-09 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi all 

Just an OT comment with a tangential link to LiveCode.


At the end of the community zoom session there was a comment about old 
programming languages and  I had made a comment that Canadian banks are still 
looking for FORTRAN programmers.  I was wrong it is COBOL programmers.  I found 
an article from last year around the time when I must have read about this.

https://www.thestar.com/business/technology/2018/09/21/do-you-know-cobol-if-so-there-might-be-a-job-for-you.html

That search was sparked by  an article I just saw today saying that the 
shortage of COBOL programmers it is an issue for US government agencies in the 
midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/08/business/coronavirus-cobol-programmers-new-jersey-trnd/?iid=ob_lockedrail_topeditorial

I don’t know COBOL but it was interesting as to the reason many programmers did 
not like it.

From the Star article "Detractors say Cobol isn’t versatile and results in 
reams of code, because it is partly written in actual English words.”

And it is not just in North America that having a lot of legacy code in COBOL 
is an issue.  I found this article on the website.
https://www.dw.com/en/fail-by-design-bankings-legacy-of-dark-code/a-43645522

The article quotes a retired COBOL programmer who takes issue with the negative 
view of COBOL above.

"People who are conversant in terse languages, like C, do not like COBOL 
because it's very wordy. You say things out in plain English sentences and 
before you even get down to doing anything you have to describe all of your 
data in a very elaborate structure," says retired COBOL programmer, Jay Moseley.
That can have its advantages.  "I like COBOL in that it's self-documenting. You 
can pick up something that somebody wrote 40 years ago and figure out pretty 
much what they were doing and why they were doing it," says Moseley.


I found interesting that some of the strengths of LiveCode, being in written 
with English words in more or less English sentences, and the ability to be 
self documenting, were something that existed in one of the first programming 
languages.

Any way sorry for the distraction,  now back to work.

Martin

Hi Matthias

Thanks for doing the searching on my behalf. I was embarrassed to ask a 
question that I knew I should be able to find the answer online but  I was 
getting nowhere. I couldn’t remember the terms like the shell command or the 
name of the colour  property that was being changed so I was getting nowhere. 
 

I did remember ‘remove’ but I thought ‘remove' was the shell command but when I 
looked at man for that I knew that was wrong.


Thanks for the quick response.

2020-03-25 Thread Martin Koob via use-livecode
Hi.

I saw a discussion earlier on this list or the forums about an issue I was 
having with Catalina.

Icons that appeared fine on earlier versions of Mac OS X now appeared black on 
Catalina.

The solution posted was a simple terminal command that would strip  the 
“something” from the image files which was causing the problem.

At the time I made a note of it I thought but now I can’t find it.   I have 
searched the list and the forums and the web I can’t find a post about this.

I can’t. remember the terminal command (something simple like ‘remove’)  nor 
the “something” that was removed so my searches are pretty general and not 
finding anything.

Does anyone else remember this?

Thanks

Martin

Re: Interruption to LiveCode services

So it was a Social Distancing issue then.  Keep the server 2 m away from the 
old backups.

Re: LC Server - HTTP response code 500: permission denied error

Hi Ralf

I Upgraded the livecode-server to 9.5.1 linux 64 bit 

I then 
I tried an .lc  file with no calls to RevIgniter but with a section of livecode 
script in the page

/home/myapp/sites/api.myapp.com/mylctest.lc <http://api.myapp.com/mylctest.lc>

hello world"
put "LiveCode Server version:" && the version & ""
put "Steve Holt!!   \o/ "
?>



I did not get the error that I did before  (lscgid: 
execve():/home/myapp/sites/api.myapp.com/cgi-bin/livecode-server: 
<http://api.myapp.com/cgi-bin/livecode-server:> No such file or directory)

The page loads correctly with livecode-server filling the parts I put in the 
 tags.

So now I have LiveCode server working!

The next thing I tried my app which calls the api which uses RevIgniter.

I got an error message back from the server that looks like a RevIgniter error.


I will  contact you offline about this since it is long and probably I have 
already taken up too much bandwidth on the list with this.



Regards,

Martin Koob
