Remote debugger vs other issues in targeting

2017-02-10 Thread Pyyhtiä Christer via use-livecode
The forthcoming Remote Debugger will definitely be of value in targeting LiveCode apps to the devices. However, there are areas, especially in catching issues taking place in (nearly) real time, which I - and don't know how many others - have met as the most problematic ones. Not all of the

Character sets in Android, iOS, OS/X, Windows

There are character set differences between the different platforms, when entered in an app by the user. Characters slash "/" for example is one of these. Has anyone detected the same problem? What would be the intelligent solution to overcome this? So when a user is typing "ä" (a with

Device implementation problems

2017-11-02 Thread Pyyhtiä Christer via use-livecode
A few days ago I raised the question on how the device behaviour differs from how it is in the IDE environment. The question posed was if there is a command go card "xyz" and the script continues to run immediately, would there be interference in terms of "getting the go done".

Re: Device implementation problems

2017-11-04 Thread Pyyhtiä Christer via use-livecode
That is true. However, just adding the single command "lock screen" before the "go card xyz" removes the problem. I have tried to understand what could be "illegal" in the target device point of view in the script code following, but so far haven't figured it out. Actually the script runs

Radio button scaling

1. Question 1: What is the problem with getting the radio buttons "tick boxes" scalable? Trying to remember, I asked about it for a few years ago, and the answer by LC team was, it is about the icon?? I tried using switch button widgets, but the scaling of those isn't linear (width / height)

Re: Resizing stack window by scaling

2017-10-21 Thread Pyyhtiä Christer via use-livecode
The following is only one opinion of many possible. First, you should consider automatic scaling only with a very restricted amount of cases. These are for example sort of games, where the "playing field" is the better the larger it is, and the icons / images and their relative positions or
