Splash Method of Saving Data

I am so sorry for bring this up again, but I just can’t find relevant 
information. In the good ol days one could build Mac, Windows and Unix 
standalones apps using the splash screen method to open substacks thereby 
saving data in the substacks. This Doesn’t seem to work anymore! I see there is 
a lesson for saving Custom Properties using this method but I need to save 
other data like new graphics in the substack. Help please…

> Author-Name: Hawkins, Richard Edmund
> Abstract: A new dynamic programming method is developed for numerical 
> optimization of recursive systems of equations, in which continuous choice 
> variables determine the allowed choices in subsequent stages of the problem. 
> The method works by dynamically creating bubbles, or subspaces, of the total 
> search space, allowing the indexing of states visited for later use, and 
> taking advantage of the fact that states adjacent to a visited state are 
> likely to be visited. The method thereby allows search of spaces far larger 
> than would traditionally be permitted by memory limitations. The search 
> allows an infinite planning horizon, and tests at each stage to determine 
> whether further optimization is worth the costs, reverting to a default 
> choice when no longer profitable. The method is applied to the quantitative 
> genetics problem of finding the optimal selection choices for quantitative 
> traits using an identified locus, using the present discounted value of all 
> generations. The method is then applied to the Estrogen Receptor Gene (ESR) 
> to find the economic value of testing for this particular gene.

Re: For the Mathematicians.

2022-01-23 Thread Roger Guay via use-livecode
Thank you very much for your reply. It looks like I did indeed bite off more 
than I can chew. But I really appreciate that you’ve given me some avenues to 
explore. I’m a retired Physicist that loves math, and particularly how to use 
computers to model the real world. 

Again I thank you for taking the time to respond. Is your dissertation readable 
to a LiveCoder that has no experience in any other programming language?

For the Mathematicians.

2022-01-22 Thread Roger Guay via use-livecode
This equation for the lemniscate, (x^2+y^2)^2 = 100*(x^2-y^2) is an example of 
a 2 variable function f(x,y). I am trying to figure how to plot such functions 
in LC. I can do simple functions like y = f(x) and x = f(t), y = f(t). 
Calculators such Good Grapher on the Mac do these f(x,y) functions with 
apparent ease. How? 

The only thing I’ve come up with so far is to imbed a y-repeat loop within an 
x-repeat loop where for each value of x (within a certain range), every value 
of y (within a certain range) is tested for the equation being true. If true, a 
point is generated in a point list of a polygon. I think, in principle, this 
should work and with persistence, I might be able make it work, but so far, no 
cigar. 

Is there a better way?


Thanks,

Roger

I just uploaded a stack called “Infection" to Sample Stacks which might be a 
little fun (in a scary way) for some of you. It’s a Monte Carlo simulation 
wherein a number of individuals randomly moving about in an enclosed space, are 
infected by a single randomly infected individual. I welcome any feedback that 
might lead to more accuracy in or improvement to this model.

Re: Control of Text Fields.

2021-11-05 Thread Roger Guay via use-livecode
Very good, Richmond. It’s impressive how quickly you piss around! And, it’s 
close but no cigar . The arrow keys on the keyboard move the ibeam in a field 
w/o highlighting any text. And, the Delete key deletes the char in front of the 
iBeam. I thought this would be easy to duplicate in LC, but maybe not??.

Why do I want to emulate these keys? Well at this point, It has become a 
challenge and I like challenges. BTW, the calculator that I am inspired to 
replicate is found in Mac Good Grapher which is bundled with the Mac. The Good 
Grapher Calculator has back and forward buttons and a Delete button that 
operate exactly as the keyboard ones

Thanks for playing with this,

Yes, I suppose so. Even easier would be to modify the points of a polygon 
generated from R = 10*sin(theta)*cos(theta) in polar coordinates (a four leaf 
clover type), but I’m hoping to avoid that.

Lemniscate Polygon

2021-11-02 Thread Roger Guay via use-livecode
Dear List,

Bernd has produced an absolutely beautiful animation using a Lemniskate polygon 
that was previously provided by Hermann Hoch. Can anyone provide some help on 
how to create this polygon mathematically? Since the equation for a Lemniskate 
involves the SqRt of negative numbers, which is not allowed in LC, I am 
stumped. 

You can find Bernd’s animation here: 
https://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?f=10=36412 


Thanks,
Roger

Re: [ANN] bnGuides has been updated

2021-10-11 Thread Roger Guay via use-livecode
bnGuides is unobtrusive and efficient, cute even. I like it a lot!

I added a script to alternately collapse and expand it making it even more 
unobtrusive.

When it comes to UI design, you never get a second chance to make to make a 
first impression!

Thank you, Bernd

Roger

This is really nice and fast, Alex. Thanks again for doing this as I’ve always 
felt that LC’s Sample Stacks is a great and often overlooked resource save for 
it’s interface. I note that "Log In" and "Sign Up" do not work. Is there any 
value in those items?

Hi Paul, I’m not able to duplicate the error here. Can you tell what control 
you were adjusting?

You should be able to achieve what you want by changing the ‘backBar” grc style 
from roundrect to oval. You might have to play with the code a bit, but it 
should work.

Huh . . . this is hard to understand since the script toggles revMenubar 
precisely to the top of one monitor or the other based on returned screenRects.

And, you unchecked the “Displays have separate Spaces” in the Mission Control

Re: Problems with Multiple Monitors

Hi Fred et al,

I use the following script to switch the monitor I wish to use for the 
revmenubar and revTools and then position pallets like my own rTools and 
tmAlign3. It is working quite nicely for me with my external monitor positioned 
above my MBP and “Displays have separate spaces” unchecked.


on mouseUp

put the screenrects into tsr

if the number of lines of tsr = 2 then

if the left of stack revmenubar = item 1 of tsr then

set the left of stack revmenubar to item 1 of line 2 of 
tsr

set the top of stack revmenubar to item 2 of line 2 of 
tsr + 25

else

set the left of stack revmenubar to item 1 of tsr

set the top of stack revmenubar to item 2 of tsr + 25

end if

end if

positionPalletes

pass mouseUp

end mouseUp


on positionPalletes

set the top of stack revtools to the bottom of stack revMenuBar + 20

set the left of stack revTools to the left of stack revmenubar

set the top of stack rtools to the bottom of stack revMenuBar + 20

set the left of stack rTools to the right of stack revtools

set the left of stack tmAlign3 to the right of stack revMenubar

set the top of stack tmAlign3 to the top of stack revMenubar

end positionPalletes



HTH,
Roger

I did try that but to no avail. However, I solved my problem by putting the 
guts of the script inside a handler in the stack I want to control. I then just 
call that handler from the stack that is controlling. Works great . . . 
probably a better way to go anyway.

Thanks for your help

My apologies to everyone! The LC Lesson that Heather referred us to does indeed 
work in Big Sur as well. My mistake was thinking that the “Open Anyway” in the 
System Prefs never appears in Big Sur. But it certainly does . . . after 
clicking “OK” on the first dialog box. 

Thanks to Bob Earp for pointing that out to me.

Many thanks Heather and Scott for these lessons. Unfortunately they don’t apply 
to OS Big Sur. In fact, it was because I initially thought that apple closed 
this door to opening standalones (SA) in Big Sur that I raised the alarm here.

Turns out the process in Big Sur is even easier, involving just a few “opening” 
clicks to actually open a SA which I discovered with the help of Scott and 
others here. The easiest way to describe it is to Right or Control click on the 
unzipped SA twice. The second time will add an “Open” button to the dialog box 
that will indeed open it.

There may be some variations of this that might work as well, but the second 
mouseClick on the SA must be a Right or Control click that brings up the 
context menu.

I will try to get a short lesson with screen captures to the Forum soon.


HTH and thanks to everyone who participated in this thread.

Great Scott! (How often do you hear that?)

This works on second attempt but not the first. I verified this by trashing the 
first unzipped app and unzipping a second as you suggest. Here are the details:

On first right-click - Open, I got “"Testeroni” can’t be opened because Apple 
cannot check it for malicious software”. “This software needs to be updated. 
Contact the developer for more information.” Safari downloaded this file today 
at 3:54 PM from”& (you.com ) with 2 buttons: "Show in Finder" 
and “OK"

On second attempt, I got the same message with 3 buttons: “Open", "Show in 
Finder" and “Cancel” And “Open” works

Alleluia and Go figure!!

Thanks, Scott!

I’m sure you’re right about this. And, If this be the case, I would ask for the 
work-around approach . . . a LiveCodeLight App downloadable from RunRev (or 
other approved source) that runs stacks but hides or strips the IDE.

You and I are very much in the same boat as far as how we use LiveCode.

The problem is not constructing the standalones. LiveCode is superb in this 
regard. The problem is distributing Apple unapproved standalones. It seems I 
can no longer do that anymore as I used to. The problem is that opening an 
unapproved standalone on an other computer other than one’s own is difficult if 
not impossible for OS 11.2. Other’s in this thread have offered that it still 
can be done albeit with a more convoluted process, and I am still trying to 
figure this out. e.g if I send a standalone to my wife (called StackOmatic) to 
share, we inevitably end up with the  "You do not have permission to open the 
application “StackOmatic”. “Contact your computer or network administrator for 
assistance” with a simple “OK” button. I can’t seem to replicate the process 
that others have suggested to get to the “Open Anyway” button.

Re: New(?) Idea for Standalones

2021-03-29 Thread Roger Guay via use-livecode
Craig,

I apologize for the confusion. I tended to shift focus throughout this thread.

I too have, in the past, made and distributed standalones with great ease. But 
recently Apple and perhaps others have made it very difficult to do this as 
they are now requiring(?) that one be an Apple developer with an increasingly 
complex process for certifying apps for distribution.

In this thread, others have claimed that one can still do this (build 
distributable standalones w/o being an Apple developer etc.) with a slightly 
more convoluted process which I have not yet been able to replicate on Mac OS 
11.2. I’m still working on it. In any case it is not as easy as it use to be 
and IMO, this door may be closing.

All I want is a simple reliable, repeatable easy to use method/process for 
sharing stacks or Standalones with friends, family and colleagues without 
having to become an Apple developer. 

So Craig, I would appreciate knowing more about your process.


HTH,

Roger

Re: New(?) Idea for Standalones

2021-03-28 Thread Roger Guay via use-livecode
John et al,

To recap: 

My ultimate goal is to get support for RunRev to provide a LiveCodeLight 
download that opens stacks but hides or strips the IDE. I can’t believe this 
would be difficult in any way.

In the meantime, I am trying to recreate the old Standalone app method (See 
Jacquelines’ post in this thread) that opens stacks. 2 or more OSs ago this was 
extremely easy to do, but because of the increasing complexity of Apple 
requirements (and Windows?) it is now quite difficult and I have yet to succeed 
at it. Even if it is still possible, I shudder to think what they will do next 
to further complicate our efforts to simple collaborate and share with family 
and friends.

Thanks to all who are taking an interest.

Roger

James, Kelly and Brian,

Thanks for sticking with me on this. 

Perhaps, to smooth out this process, I should look for an uncertified app to 
download to my own machine, instead of working off of her machine. Have you any 
suggestions for that?

Answers to some of your question:
I emailed a standalone app  to my wife called StackOmatic that opens stacks 
(works on my machine)
I tried double and right clicking from the email then... 
I saved it to her Desktop and also to her Downloads where I tired both double 
clicking and right clicking again 
In every case, I end up with the dreaded "You do not have permission to open 
the application “StackOmatic”. “Contact your computer or network administrator 
for assistance” with a simple “OK” button.

HTH,

Roger

Nope! Right clicking on a standalone I’m trying to share with my wife on her 
iMac w OS 11.2 results in this menu: Open Attachment - Quick Look Attachment - 
Save Attachment…. - Save to Downloads Folder - Share - Copy - Speech

Then, clicking on the “Open Attachment” menu item results in the same response 
I reported earlier: a simple screen with this message: You do not have 
permission to open the application “StackOmatic”. “Contact your computer or 
network administrator for assistance” with a simple “OK” button. Dead end as 
before!

Further, at Kelly's suggestion to try and adjust settings in the Security and 
Privacy System Preferences to downgrade standards to allow a one time opening, 
I found nothing of the sort. 

So at this point, I think Kelly’s idea of someone with Apple credentials 
building a certified standalone that runs stacks is the only short term 
solution. If it helps, I and probably others, would be willing to pay a 
reasonable fee for such gem. Otherwise, I and anyone else wanting to share 
stacks, will have to jump through the increasingly ridiculous hoops that Apple 
(and Windows?) place before us. OTH….

Ultimately, I really think that a LiveCodeLight app that runs stacks without 
the IDE would be the best way to go to share stacks with friends, family and 
colleagues.

Re: New(?) Idea for Standalones

2021-03-27 Thread Roger Guay via use-livecode

Here is a report on the back door approach to opening a standalone on MAC OS 
11.2:

I built a stack precisely as Jacqueline specified and made a Mac standalone of 
it. I checked to make sure it worked on my own computer. I then sent the 
standalone to my wife’s computer – another Mac running the same OS 11.2. 
Double-clicking the standalone on her computer, resulted is a simple screen 
with this message: You do not have permission to open the application 
“StackOmatic”. “Contact your computer or network administrator for assistance” 
with a single “OK” button.

 I then checked System Preferences - Security & Privacy - General Tab. There 
was no “Open Anyway” button.

Dead in the water! 

I humbly submit that we need a LiveCodeLight app from a certified developer 
that runs stacks without the IDE

Re: New(?) Idea for Standalones

2021-03-27 Thread Roger Guay via use-livecode
Thank you, Richard for these responses . . . some of which I will have to 
consider for a while to better understand. But I still think this idea has 
merit, is very easy to do and maintain and makes Livecode even more attractive 
to prospective customers, especially those who require easy collaboration with 
colleagues

And BTW, I don’t care who builds it, but it seems a natural for RunRev.

Jacque,

You always come thru with such great clarity and thoroughness. I remember going 
thru this process a few years ago, but I thought this back door approach was 
closed by Apple within the last couple of OS releases. Indeed, looking at my 
Security tab of System Preferences in OS 11.2, I do not see the “Open 
Anyway” button as illustrated in your link for Mac OS. Is it possible this 
button only appears if the OS senses that user is trying to open an 
unauthorized app?

A couple of things. The developer is not even required to build a standalone, 
and presumably it would be easier to strip out or hide the IDE of 
LiveCodeLight. Otherwise, either way is good.

Could be, but that requires you to be an Apple Developer. Too much hassle! A 
LiveCodeLight from RunRev that runs stacks without the IDE would be easier.

Re: New(?) Idea for Standalones

2021-03-27 Thread Roger Guay via use-livecode
A few days ago, a very impressive post came in here from a researcher at an 
accelerator lab somewhere. I’ve lost the post and may have some details wrong. 
As I recall he was very complimentary of LiveCode as a tool for his work but 
was lamenting that he could no longer easily share his work with colleagues. 
The idea of a LiveCodeLight downloadable from RunRev that opens and runs stacks 
without the IDE, would go a long way to solving his problem. Much better than a 
web served approach, IMHO. 

But, what do I know?

This conversation has given me some focus and clarification of the basic idea. 
Here is what I would love to see: A LiveCodeLight downloadable from the mother 
ship. LiveCodeLight would be a stripped down version of the community edition 
that would not open the IDE, but would open and run stacks. 

Thanks, Brian for the idea.

Is that a cool idea or what?

Yes, that’s probably the best answer so far. I just think it’s a little bit 
harder to convince someone to download Livecode community than to pick up a 
cute little app from the app store specifically designed to run standalones. 
Just a stupid idea I guess.

Has anyone thought of building a “legal” and “blessed" app for Mac, WIndows and 
Linux that would open standalones for for each of those platforms? Why put each 
of us through the agony (and expense) of shifting/changing requirements to be 
able to easily distribute standalones? Just as Microsoft Word is required to 
open .doc files why not have something like LCreader app open .livecode files

Re: Which Monitor to Open LC In

2021-02-23 Thread Roger Guay via use-livecode
I don’t normally use Spaces as I don’t leave a lot apps open, but, when I enter 
Spaces, I see that my MBP monitor is Desktop 1 and my external monitor is 
Desktop 2.
