Hi Bob,

Yes, I was looking into the binary sort idea.  It’s too bad that
isn’t just a built-in function for LC.  I’m not sure it’s worth
that kind of effort for my particular case.

Thanks,

Rick

Hi Bob,

I just need to make one pass at the data, so building an SQL database for it 
doesn’t make sense.

I don’t have any definitive line for the boundary between good and bad data.  
It’s more of a
consistent first guess used just to cut down on the amount of data to process.  
I start looking
for the good data after about a third of it has passed by.

Thanks,

Hi Ralph,

I was looking at filter.  It might help me to
cut down on the amount of data to search,
but I would still have to throw out the
first 1/3 of the data.  Perhaps filtering
first and then processing what’s left
by line number wouldn’t be too slow.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Divide Large Data Blob?

2022-05-16 Thread Rick Harrison via use-livecode
I have a large chunk of data that I want to
search as quickly as possible.  

Unfortunately the part I want to search is the 
middle third of the data.  The other thirds at 
the beginning and at the end are just junk and 
slow down my search so I want to get rid of them.

I don’t want to search line by line as that
takes way too long.

There’s no unique character dividing any
of these data regions.

What’s the best way to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Visual Dissolve Times

2022-05-05 Thread Rick Harrison via use-livecode
Greetings LiveCoders,

I was playing around with the visual dissolve effect
and I wanted to be able to specify an amount of
time for the effect.  In my case I wanted it to
do the effect in 0.75 seconds (3/4 of a second).

We only get choices of 

very fast
fast
normal
slow
very slow

When I tried the very fast setting, the 
fastest time I got was about 1 second.

Is there anyway to make it faster?

Thanks

I just can’t perform the above programmatically

“miaou” has 4 consecutive vowels so I’m not surprised it has 2 syllables.  That 
may be a rule.

The average person uses about 20,000 words on a regular basis.

They know about 40,000 visually.

It’s estimated there are about 1.25 million english words, but a lot of those 
are scientific terms.

Anyone up to building a cross reference database that can be searched quickly?

Hi Richmond,

Yes, I came across syllablecounter.net which only intrigued me more.

Unfortunately it reports the word triangle has 2 syllables which is incorrect.
Any dictionary will tell you triangle has 3 syllables.  Is there a rule for that
or is it just an exception to some rule?

Perhaps there are other examples out there I can find.

Whatever happened to our pocket English Teacher App?

Hi Richmond,

Yes, English. Sorry I forgot to be specific, I thought it was implied.

Yes, I have been counting vowels, but there appear to be a lot of exceptions,
so there must be a lot more rules.

I need to know what all the rules are to make it work if possible.

There are websites out there on the internet that will count
syllables in whatever text given to them so it must be possible.
How are they doing it?  Is it an algorithm ,or are they comparing
the words to a database table that has all the dictionary information?

Thanks,

to write games with it, or to be able to process
searches fast enough.  

With a 10X speed improvement all things 
suddenly become possible.

As it was first presented, $499 for a 1 year
subscription or $99 to just support the
project was all that was in the emails
sent to me.

I was surprised that when I went to the
website to add my support, I discovered
there were a few more offerings that
weren’t in any of the emails sent to me
by LiveCode Ltd.

Other options were:

$125 for a 3 month compiler benefit  (No subscription)
$249 for a 6 month compiler benefit  (No subscription)

$499 for a 1 year subscription
$999 for a 2 year subscription
$1,499 for a 3 year subscription

I wasn’t at all aware of these additional options.

I think those options should have been mentioned
in the emails sent to me upfront instead of hoping
that I would click on a link button before seeing
that information. The marketing department could
have done better with this!

Anyway I wanted to help out with some of the
fence sitters on this project by letting you know
of some these other options in case you missed
them like I did!

Thanks,

Rick

Re: Browser Widget and Images

2022-03-14 Thread Rick Harrison via use-livecode
Thanks!

I had forgotten about "import as control" and about
set the imagedata of image “my image”.

set the imagedata doesn’t fit to the image’s object size though.
I would probably have to resize the image beforehand.

I also came across:

put URL "binfile:///ExportedImageFile.png" into image  “my image”

The above does fit the image size nicely and I can paint on it etc.

Thanks for all of your help!

Re: Browser Widget and Images

2022-03-13 Thread Rick Harrison via use-livecode
Hi Klaus,

Thanks for answering.

So accessing the URL of the image directly in the image object
puts the image there, which is a good first step.

How is it stored however?  

If one looks at the image source it still shows the URL. 
 
I find I’m unable to paint on top of the image, probably 
because that would require my being able to modify the
online URL which isn’t possible for the obvious reason.

I probably need to make a local copy of the image to
be able to work on it.  Export image? Copy it to
the clipboard and paste it elsewhere?

Suggestions?

Rick

Browser Widget and Images

2022-03-13 Thread Rick Harrison via use-livecode
I have a large free public domain image displaying nicely in my LC Browser 
Widget.

I want to bring the image directly into a LiveCode image object to be able to 
play around with it.

What’s the best way to do that?

While I was looking around in the dictionary for possibilities, I came
across some older revBrowser commands.  Do they work with with
the new browser widget or are the two completely different animals?

Thanks,

Rick

put "THIS*FIND" into tTarget

put “abcdefghijkTHISISMYTEXTTOFINDlmnopqrstuvwxyz” into tLargeTextString

put tLargeTextString into pText


— Adding your code here Mark:
put ".*THIS.*FIND.*" into tTarget

filter pText with regex pattern tTarget into tFilteredTextResult

answer "tFilteredTextResult = " & tFilteredTextResult

yields: 

tFilteredTextResult = "abcdefghijkTHISISMYTEXTTOFINDlmnopqrstuvwxyz”

So what did it filter?  It’s the same string I started with.

Problems with Filter?

2022-03-12 Thread Rick Harrison via use-livecode
Good Morning!

I’m trying to get filter to work with some text and so far no success at all.

Given large string:  abcdefghijkTHISISMYTEXTTOFINDlmnopqrstuvwxyz

I want the text between THIS and FIND which could be anything like ISLJFKKDKLS

It’s OK to include the THIS and FIND in my result.

I’m thinking I need a wildcard character like * to get the information.


So if I try:
put "THIS*FIND" into tTarget

put “abcdefghijkTHISISMYTEXTTOFINDlmnopqrstuvwxyz” into tLargeTextString

put tLargeTextString into pText

filter pText with regex tTarget into tFilteredTextResult

answer "tFilteredTextResult = " & tFilteredTextResult

One might think this would work, but it doesn’t, and I get nothing for 
tFilteredTextResult

Suggestions?

Hi Tom,

Do you have a more specific Javascript/LC example?

I’m not a big fan of Javascript and only use it very sparingly.

I would also have to first scan the HTML to find the name of the button I want 
it to activate wouldn’t I?

If I have to go into that fine detail I would be better off scanning for the 
link and just using a URL statement.

Why doesn’t click at location work?

I was hoping to be able to programmatically
tell the browser widget where to go to next
by having LC click on an image or button
within the browser window.  

So far I have had no success with that.  
Is there a bug in LC preventing me from
doing this seemingly simple task?

Is there a work around?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Sign In with Apple and Google

Do it in a webpage.  I doubt there is a plug-in or a better way.

Personally whenever I see any website that tells me to
login with my google, facebook, or apple account, I
immediately view that website as being suspicious.

If there is a standard login using a Login ID and
password that I set up, then I always elect to do
things that way.

Good luck!

Re: Speed up a slow loop

Eon’s ago I had a similar problem in Fortran.

My solution was to break up my huge array into 3 smaller
alphabetical arrays.  I had to first determine with some
if statements which of the 3 arrays I had to search.

The solution turned a glacially slow search into a very acceptable one.

You may want to try a similar solution.

Good luck!

I ran into an error (67) when trying to send using Gmail.

Google has updated their security for 3rd party Apps, and 
now you need to use an App password.

How can an App password be included for a tsNet

You could probably do it on your own website with LiveCode server.

It would not work with YouTube though.

You might however be able to publish an optional link to
your interactive video on YouTube just below a video
you have posted.

You could say something like:  To try the interactive

Re: Sorting cards problem, and a link

2022-01-01 Thread Rick Harrison via use-livecode
Hi Jacque,

I’ve been looking at the exchange of messages here which had made me
want to ask, why are you sorting cards at all?

Wouldn’t it be easier just to use array pointers or an index for the cards.
You can sort the pointers however you like and the cards never have to
move at all according to your sort.  You can do all of your sorting
experiments that way, and just go to the correct card that your
pointer index tells you to go to.  It might be quicker too.

Happy New Year, and I hope that helps!

If you could provide a link to a photo example of

There may be a way to simplify your process so you

Hi Bob and Martin,

On a Mac the solution is to use the Option and 5 keys.  The result is:  ∞
All you really had to do was G∞gle it!

I remember the math class discussions of a googol and a googolplex.

Then I recalled that some infinite sets are bigger than others.

The following article will really get your thinking about infinity:

Perhaps some forevers are longer than others?  ;-)

All I need is one that will allow me to show text,

I’m eyeing Sparkle right now, and considering getting it.

What do you like to use?

If you just want to show the table in an email why not just send

Are you trying to send just one or a lot of them over a period of time?

Hi Sean,

So you want the receiver of your emailed table to be able to modify the data in 
it.

I would make it an HTML email so you can allow the user to enter the data
directly into your server database table field.

That’s if I am understanding you correctly here.

2021-09-05 Thread Rick Harrison via use-livecode
Hi Dan,

So you want the company to break more promises, even to the lifetimers?

A lot of the lifetimers have spent a lot of money on licenses before
deciding to invest in lifetime licenses.  I don’t think you want to be
ticking off what is probably the company's most loyal base.  
It’s a recipe for disaster!

Just my 2 cents for the day.

Re: LiveCode community edition is gone

2021-09-02 Thread Rick Harrison via use-livecode
Hi Dan,

Yes, there were a lot of us who specifically contributed to make the Community 
version possible
as open source.  One of the justifications was that if the company went under 
we would still have
the Community version available to us. The promise that the company would also 
support it was
equally appealing. While the original intent was to use the Community version 
to widen the user
base, and get more paying customers, it apparently didn’t get enough of them to 
be able to
justify sustaining the Community version. 

I can understand why there are users who feel betrayed by the company 
especially with the new 
pricing structure, and the discontinuance of support for the Community version 
which was even 
paid for in a marketing campaign in advance of it’s release.

It can seem that the company keeps increasing it’s prices while taking away 
functionality by
forcing users to select which specific platforms to be able to deploy to. That 
seems to go against 
the idea of coding once and being able to deploy to all platforms in one 
affordable package.

Access to the Community version is still very important as that is how many 
users were first 
introduced to LiveCode who then became paying customers. I believe the try it 
before buying 
model is still very important for helping users to make the purchase decision.

It would be nice if the company were willing to provide the final version of 
the Community 
version under an MIT license instead of GPL since they will no longer be 
supporting it at all, and 
it marks a true fork in the road from the codebase going forward.  That might 
make the transition
easier to accept for some users. Continually making users of your product feel 
disappointed
or angry isn’t a good marketing strategy.  The happier you can make your 
customers the better
your business will be!

I think it’s great that the CEO is interested in negotiating with those users 
who feel they can’t
afford the new pricing structure, which is certainly something one would never 
see with
large companies like Disney.

The LC community is going through a shock with so much change that had no 
gradual hints
about it. Acceptance of the changes will take time as it always does, but we 
will adjust.

Just my 2 cent observations for the day.

Re: Is there an issue with beep on iOS?

Hi Bill,

You can always make your own beep sound, but you will have
to call it like you would any other sound.  Don’t use beep.

Example from the dictionary:

put specialFolderPath("engine") & "/applause.mp3" into tSoundFile
play tSoundFile

Good luck!

Re: httpd library

2021-07-25 Thread Rick Harrison via use-livecode
Hi Bernard,

The user should set up an LC Web Server with a database connected to it.

The LC Apps should all then send information to the LC Server, and the Server 
will send information back to the LC Apps.

I think any other way is going to be a huge waste of time and energy.

Good luck,

Re: How do I get the ID of a database?

2021-07-09 Thread Rick Harrison via use-livecode
Hi Bob,

When you open the database with revOpenDatabase you assign the whole thing to 
yourDatabaseID.

Look it up in the dictionary towards the end and you’ll find what I’m referring 
to.

yourDatabaseID will be an integer and you will use that to refer to your 
database for other functions.

Hope that helps!

Hi Paul,

You can make your own custom controls in LiveCode.

Perhaps you just want something more like three radio buttons,
or simulate a slider control with buttons and graphics.

Give us an example image to help clarify what you want.

Hi Paul,

Grab a horizontal slider control.

Set the start position to -1
Set the end position to +1
Set the current position to 0

Make it any length you want.

If you try clicking on a 1/4 setting it will spring to the next value,
giving it the left middle and right positions you want.

Let me know if that works well enough for you.

Re: Really need In App Purchasing for macOS

2021-05-14 Thread Rick Harrison via use-livecode
Hi Kee,

IAP in the Apple World only applies to iOS apps in their environment for now as 
I understand it.
That may change in the future as Apple starts making iOS Apps available for 
macOS.

To implement what you want, you would probably have to add a link to your 
website in your Mac App.
At your website you can offer the user a chance to upgrade to another version 
of your app.
(Of course Apple may not like this because at this point you might be cutting 
them out of the equation
and it might violate your terms with Apple.  You will have to research that.)

You may even just refer them to another Mac App on the Apple Store which would 
not violate anything
in your terms because Apple will still be able to take their cut.

The old strategy was to give the users a cheap or free version of your product, 
and then provide a link
to the Pro-version or SuperPro or Ultra-Pro version of your software with more 
capability each time.

Please let us know how you solve your problem, and what extra success you had 
with the strategy.

Good luck!

Re: New(?) Idea for Standalones

2021-03-29 Thread Rick Harrison via use-livecode
Hi Mark,

Perhaps improving standalone building should be put at
the top of the priority of things to improve for LiveCode.

I think people are very frustrated that they are having
great difficulties in building a standalone. A process that
used to be relatively simple is now way too complex.

Many LC users want to be able to create their application,
and deploy it quickly to their own computers, or to give
away to their family members.  They are not interested
in inserting Apple or other corporations into their personal
programming loop, and a lot of us feel the same way.

No one wants to deal with having to create bundle ids
or other corporate nonsense.  (Option for a unique random
bundle id generator here?)

I believe users want LC to step up it’s game in dealing
with these issues so the deployment experience is an
enjoyable one, and not a PITA.

Successfully addressing this problem helps everyone!

Just my 2 cents for the day.  ;-)

Rick

Re: LC Server - Check for Screen size?

2021-03-20 Thread Rick Harrison via use-livecode
Hi Matthias,

So you are thinking something like:





Your Screen:




var txt = "";
txt += "

Total width/height: " + screen.width + "*" + screen.height + "

"; txt += "

Available width/height: " + screen.availWidth + "*" + screen.availHeight + "

"; txt += "

Color depth: " + screen.colorDepth + "

"; txt += "

Color resolution: " + screen.pixelDepth + "

"; document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = txt; And then put the information into a Javascript cookie and then read the cookie value with an LC Server script. I’ll see if I can get that to work. Thanks!

LC Server - Check for Screen size?

2021-03-20 Thread Rick Harrison via use-livecode
I was wondering if there is anyway to check for the
device type or screen size of the connected device
for LC Server so I can serve the correct size screen?

Thanks,

Rick

Hi Andre,

You should do this again.  

Next time give us some notice so we can join you at the beginning.  

Your voice was only coming out of the left side of my headphones so you need to

Hi Mike,

You could have led with that information.

You aren’t new to the process, and you
have one solution, and a possible second.  
What do you need?

Are you trying to find an app that already
uses the API?

tsNet mail message too slow!

2021-03-04 Thread Rick Harrison via use-livecode
Hi again,

From the time I click on the web-browser to
activate the script to email the message
until the web-browser arrives at the next
webpage is one minute and 6 seconds.
That is totally unacceptable.

I’m wondering if I can attempt to spin
this off as if it were a thread or background
task.

What comes to mind is having the
email script be a stand-alone app
that is called with a do as AppleScript
from the web-browser.

Has anyone hadsuccess with
this approach before?

Do you think this is worth a try or
can you think of a better way?

Thanks,

Rick

How many employees do you have?

Their website is a bit confusing just
as other government websites.

Some of it refers to having more than 250
employees, and I also saw something
about 19 or more.

If you are a small shop you may not
have to submit anything.

Ok, everything is fine on the format front now.

I noticed the code takes about a minute to execute all the way through.
(Must be a lot of background process have to run?)

I tried Charles Warwick’s suggestion for Bcc, and it didn’t work. :-(
If any of you want to take a crack at it, please let me know your results.

Thanks to everyone!

I want to send a message that has multiple lines.
I have tried inserting cr and return and nothing
works so far. The message ends up on a same line.

Ideas?
