LC Web integration is not good enough

2018-04-30 Thread Andre Garzia via use-livecode
Hi Friends, This is a bit of a rant because I can't believe no one stopped by these kind of problems before. First of all, the JS Handlers for a browser widget are one way only. There is no way to call a LiveCode function from JS and actually see a response. You need to code two JS functions,

Andre, I'm using JSONToArray and ArrayToJSON for round trip with no problems. I'm storing an LC config array in a JSON text file, then later read the file back into an LC array. The only criticism I have is the formatting of the JSON in the text file could be better for manual changes with a text

LC on Windows - slow for others or just me?

2018-04-30 Thread Richard Gaskin via use-livecode
Okay, granted, I usually run Win 10 in a VM. But every other program seems pretty snappy, barely distinguishable from a bare-metal install. And then there's LiveCode. I'm running v9, and it's slower than molasses in winter. Is this just my setup, or are other Windows users finding

I'm on a Win 10 VM using a raid array for my VHD. At times autocorrect causes editing long scripts(2000+) to get on the other side of prohibitively slow. Other times it's OK. Don't have a recipe yet. How do you turn off autocorrect again? Populating text fields is 5-10% slower than v8. Taking 5 -

Hi. This is fun to do. Make two fields. In the target field, the one you will type into, set a custom property "rawText" to some long list of words, perhaps chapter 1 of your favorite novel. It is a good idea to strip all punctation from that text before setting the prop. In that field, place

Informal survey: multiple desktops

Now that Windows, Mac, and Linux all offer multiple desktop, I'm curious: do you folks use them? FWIW here's how I often work: I tend to open my email client and web browser in workspace 1, then LC on workspace 2. Spaces 3 and 4 tend to get used ad hoc when there's something I need to focus

I avoid global variables as these are visible to any open stack you are working on, so you cannot have 2 stacks open that use the same global names or they will overwrite each other. Instead I use the custom properties of the mainstack as an ad hoc stack global system. I do this with cards and

Hi Bob, If your problem with tmAlign was the same as mine, namely the title greyed out and no longer readable, I hacked/fixed it by adding "set the blendlevel of grc "header_base" of stack "tmAlign3" to 90” on OpenStack. I did a similar thing with tmEffects. Cheers, Roger > On Apr 30,

It's the nature of certificates. You can have a certificate last a long time but you cannot create a non-expiring cert to my knowledge. Also, keep in mind that as time progresses, encryption algorithms become dated. Malware forces the modification and sometimes the abandoning of what seemed
