Re: Blurring field contents

2018-04-02 Thread David V Glasgow via use-livecode
Thanks for all the suggestions, but blur works really well.  I just take a 
snapshot of the field, blur the resultant image, overlay it on the confidential 
field, snapshot the entire card to clipboard and then delete the blurred image.

I had to manually include it in the standalone, though, which confused me  a 
tad.

Also, fields (or is it fonts) are different in LC8.  Two fields with identical 
content,  font (arial MS) and settings, one clips the very top of the text and 
the other doesn’t.Nudging the margin up 1 fixes the issue, but it is a bit 
confusing.

Best wishes,

David G

Or cover the hidden fields with graphics of daisies. :-)

If blurring turns out to be too problematic you might consider just replacing 
text with bullets or Lorem Ipsum.

Ah! Thank you, Paul.  That’s good to know.  I am a bit Richmondesque in my 
attachment to older versions of LC, so I have only played a little with LC 8 

To those asking why I would want to do this, the answer is to hide clinically 
sensitive information whilst making it clear that the field is completed.  It 
means that clinicians can generate an anonymised snapshot of the screen to use 
in presentations/clinical supervision.  Its a technique routinely used in 
walkthroughs or screencasts of clinical information displayed on screen.  There 
was a rather nice implementation in the ScreenSteps app from Blue Mango .

Thanks and best wishes,

Why do you want to blur text?  I can’t stand blurry things, they always
make me think there is something wrong with my eyes!  
(Unless of course that is the purpose of the blurry text.)  ;-)

You could set the imagesource of the characters into the field, take the
snapshot,  then "set the text of field "whatever" to the text of field
"whatever" to revert.
Did a quicky test, and it seems to work well enough.
local simageOn
on mouseup
lock screen
   if sImageOn is empty then put false into sImageOn
   if sImageOn then
  set the text of field 1 to the text of field 1
  put false into sImageOn
   else
  repeat with i = 1 to the number of chars in field 1
 set the imagesource of char i of field 1 to 1008
  end repeat
  put true into sImageOn
   end if
unlock screen
end mouseup

Why not just hide the fields in question before exporting the snapshots and 
then showing them after the export is done? This way you do not have to work 
with the exported image.
