Not sure about that one. If it's a small stack and you're ok with it - 
email direct to me and I'll take a look. It took me a few tries but I 
finally did get my Header Widget to do (more or less) what I want.

This doesn’t see quite right. Also, why does it not display the label “Next” 
near the icon like it does for “Back?” Is that because the widget was made to 
not show labels on additional icons?
If you disable "first item left", then all icons act the same. If it is 
enabled, then all the items except the first one (i.e. those to the 
right of the title) are controlled by the choice of "icon" or "text" in 
itemStyle. The first/left one seems to be exceptional, and always 
displays both icon and text - and that matches the visual behaviour of 
most, if not all, of Apple's iOS apps - so I guess there's a guideline 
somewhere that recommends it.


However, there are other iOS apps that don't follow that convention, so 
I think it would be worht putting in an enhancement request asking to be 
able to do it.


Alex.

Header Widget troubles and orientationchange examples?

2017-07-11 Thread JOHN PATTEN via use-livecode
Hi All,

I am trying to do some simple navigation with the header widget.

on mouseUp

local tActionName

put the mouseAction of me into tActionName

--if tActionName is not empty then
-- Execute script triggered by the given action

if tActionName is "back" then

go prev card

else

if tActionName is  “next" then

go next card

end if

end if

end mouseUp

I have changed the action name to Back and Next. However Back works fine, but 
Next does not. If i reset the action to “new item” the next button then works.

This doesn’t see quite right. Also, why does it not display the label “Next” 
near the icon like it does for “Back?” Is that because the widget was made to 
not show labels on additional icons?

I am also getting weird results for orientation changes . I am trying to get 
the header to stay at the top of the window, however on my resize command it 
appears to only work some of the times. Is there an example of floating around 
that shows a header widget updating it’s location after each rotation of the 
device?

Thank you!
