Interesting. I don't have that problem.
I see a different problem though.
I just tried minimizing Navigator and it's more or less centered on my 
main screen, but it's also unmovable when minimized, which is annoying.

Hi Bob,

Goes to show how important user research is. For me personally, I want to
get Navigator out of the way entirely when I minimize it. It's trivial to
have a preference to make it minimize in place. But also: I went to some
length to have it avoid minimizing behind/on top of (don't remember which
way it went) the menu bar. I think I could easily both:

1. Offer a preference to minimize where it is
2. Automatically avoid overlapping the GLX2 bar. Can you send me the name
of any stacks involved to avoid? I haven't looked, but I think it would be
as simple as adding a stack name to a list.

Hi Sean. I concur with Geoff. There were quite a while ago issues, but
Geoff got on them and now I use Navigator all the time. The only thing I
will say Geoff is that when I drag the window to a location, I would like
it to remain there, even when minimized. It always reverts to a default
location when first opened, which happens to overlap the GLX2 bar.

I've implemented it almost from scratch something like five times over the

Which is to say: drag and drop has a large number of special cases, and is

RE: Layers in PBrowser

2020-08-27 Thread Erik Beugelaar via use-livecode
In my opinion the only HTML5 visual development tool which comes close to 
cross-platform development dealing with a solid rendering  is Sencha Touch 
(Architect) but you need to learn ExtAngular or ExtReact and
It is pricey. And every tool has his pros and cons so also this one.

Just my two cents in this difficult thread.

Maybe switch over in time to ReactNative and Node.js using JavaScript?

I'm exploring these, cause it runs also on muliple platform, though there we're 
not as spoiled as with Livecode, but I guess most things are in your own hand 
then.

First thing i see is the almost instantly change you get to see on for example 
the Android Emulator. So it's more a website which one writes and runs almost 
everywhere with some extra functions.

Well a lot to learun for me (don't want to hijack this thread but maybe as an

about how to use it unless ALL ATTENTION of the LC team has been drawn away to 
it to the detriment of everyone else in this community meaning that the other 
things have effectively become abandonware. There is literally No Evidence to 
back up your optimistic claims of fortitude. PLEASE prove me wrong, I beg of 
you! Heather has done a shed load of Blog posts on the LCFM site and NOTHING on 
the standard LC site! HTML5 Deployment, which i am completely dependent on 
except for a few other little projects here and there, is simply not being 
worked on despite several reassurances from the mothership it ‘would’ be worked 
on. PLEASE, prove me wrong!! Because at the moment it has left me REALLY peaved 
off that the only thing they have fixed is the frikin delete key when none of 
the other modifier keys, arrow keys, escape key, copy paste, or other simple 
tings have been done. In over six months since I was sat at a table with Ian 
from LC and literally showed him face to face the issues with it. 

With respect, from experience, anyone who says ‘some day you will’ is full of 
crap (like some 3yr old shaking his fist at you)! Empty words. Show me the 
evidence. I’ve dug deep and find nothing.

Oh, just to summarize the issue:
https://quality.livecode.com/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=lcfm

If an object you wish to move between group layers is on the root of the
card it is not a problem. As soon as all of those layers (groups and
objects) get nested into a group, that's when things start bouncing
around and not going where you want them.

So, thinking about it, this is actually more likely an IDE issue and a bug
rather than an Engine problem with backwards compatibility side-effects.

Here's the main script:
https://github.com/livecode/livecode-ide/blob/develop/Toolset/palettes/project%20browser/revprojectbrowserbehavior.livecodescript#L2121

Line 2121 >> 2302
By the look of line 870, Layers were going to be addressed but never saw
the light of day. It gets declared but never used.

And, of course, we have the raw:
https://github.com/livecode/livecode-ide/blob/develop/Toolset/palettes/project%20browser/revideprojectbrowser.livecode

Awww, and I love this comment at the top of this file btw:
https://github.com/livecode/livecode-ide/blob/develop/Toolset/libraries/revideprojectbrowserlibrary.livecodescript

This library has been added as a stopgap in order to prevent errors which

only be fixed by forking the binary stack for the 8.0 IDE.

5 effing years ago -- ;D LMAO

Ali did this bug fix, supposedly, back in Apr2016, which is second to the
last commit in Aug2016!:
https://github.com/livecode/livecode-ide/commit/a5d137688a2e1abe72823c6ce0d7cb8fa8fb1f22#diff-d70adda35c18162b698c70f94170c58d
Because it's part of the binary where he did the (non-) 'fix', there's no
way of seeing what he did. Only the behaviour had been scriptified way back
in 2015. All the rest is held either in other behaviour scripts or the
Stack object scripts which is where it gets exceedingly messy.

This one seems interesting for the drag-drop part, after line 420:
https://github.com/livecode/livecode-ide/blob/develop/Toolset/palettes/project%20browser/behaviors/revideprojectbrowsercontainerrowbehavior.livecodescript

That's my homework assignment for you. See what you can faff with. For what
it's worth...

Now that the rush is over I can breathe and try to work this out, again, to
make it simple for even simpletons to understand! ;) It is, as said before,
an issue that has been an issue for 6 years, gets poo-poo'd and ignored
along with the plethora of other fundamental issues in favour of adding new

I think Turing had something to do with it. :/ But, as Mark@AHS mentioned,
even if I did find a fix and offered it, because it's a binary it cant be
easily posted up on Github and LC seem to have gone to the isolation ward

touched in the last 6yrs despite being confirmed.

HTML5 deployment is abandonware (I'm going to have to ask for a refund
on my two three year licences for it after all the failed promises of it
NOT being abandonware). Project Browser is abandonware. Widgets and the LC
marketplace, abandonware. Script editor, Abandonware. Monte's mergext
suite, practically abandonware. LCFM Native, definitely abandonware (

2020-08-14 Thread Brian Milby via use-livecode

Sean

I really didn’t mean to imply the issue didn’t exist and was truly attempting 
to reproduce the environment as closely as possible to see the issue.  I went 
as far as choosing the same object types and structure for the card as in the 
video including visibility.

Is this a stack that originated in an earlier binary format?  If so, then that 
first bug report contains a key piece of information that I didn’t have before.

If I can get a stack that demonstrates the issue, I would like to poke around 
and see if anything jumps out.  If it is engine level, it is probably a bit out 
of my lane (although I have contributed a few lines of C++).  If it is IDE I 
may have a better chance.

Thanks,
Brian

With your guidance here, I've now simplified my effort to try to

Per Mark Waddingham's comment #2 there, this one is an engine issue, and

Mark provides there guidance on using the relayerGroupedControls

relayer command for even greater ease.


It may be part of what brings about the core issue of this thread, but 
I'm unable to determine of that's the case from the information in the

This one has a pull request submitted in May, and as far as I can tell 
would seem fixed now.  If it's still affecting your work please note

status be changed to "Resolved".


They're usually pretty good about closing bug reports related to the

miss a status update now and then.

Please understand that most folks here are earnestly trying to help.  I 
know people like Brian and Jacque personally, and I feel very confident 
in saying they only bring their best intentions to this list.


When Brian says he was unable to reproduce an issue, he isn't saying the 
issue doesn't exist; like me, he's looking for details which might help 
it become reproducible on his own machine so he can help further the 
process toward a fix.


When Jacque suggests trying the App Browser as an alternative, she isn't 
trying to undermine your desire to use the Project Browser, she's just 
hearing very clearly that you have an immediate need based on a pressing 
deadline, and offering a simple solution to get you through that task so 
your project can meet with success within the time allowed.

Workarounds are for us; fixes are for us and the company.

We benefit with either; all we want is to finish our task and move on to 
the next.


The company benefits most from true fixes, improving the out-of-the-box 
experience to increase conversions while decreasing attrition.


Their priorities are theirs; mine are mine.  When I finish meeting my 
own business' revenue and growth goals, I'll be happy to pass along to 
them what I learned if they ask.  In the meantime, they have no shortage 
of guidance to choose from, and much of it is mutually exclusive, so 
I'll leave their business in their hands while I attend to my own.


There's a maxim from a Chinese emperor many dynasties ago which I've 
found useful in all my relationships, personal and professional:


  When I feel the desire to discipline another,
  I first discipline myself two-fold.
  If I am successful,
  I then ask myself if I still feel
  the desire to discipline another.

Hi Sean, There are no ‘you people’, there is only us, including you.

I can’t help you with your IDE problem, but I can see that others are
trying hard to be helpful, and that you are running on empty.

Maybe get some sleep and revisit the issue when you are feeling refreshed?

I have no clue of what you are talking about here. Bewildered! 

Why do I have the same discussion with you people. It should be simple. It is 
not. This is not the way it should work just because it is the way it does 
work. It is impossible to put things where you want them in any simple form. 
The fact you cannot replicate it using a simple stack does not take from the 
fact I am having the replicatable Effect in my complicated working stack. As 
demonstrated several times in video. Sheesh, what does it take to get through 
to you people?? It’s broken. Take my word for it!

Re: Layers in PBrowser

2020-08-12 Thread Brian Milby via use-livecode
The reason I asked about version and OS is because I watched the video and 
attempted to replicate the behavior that was shown.  I could not do so.  I’ve 
now also tried on my Mac (9.6.0) and am unable to have it do what your video 
shows.

I was always able to drag the control out of the enclosing group to be the 
first item in the enclosing parent group.  This is the same action I saw was 
not working in the video.

If you drag a control below an expanded group, it goes in the group.  If you 
drag a control below a collapsed group, it snaps back on Mac most of the time 
(looks to depend on the state of relayergroupedcontrols).

The issue that you are confronting (in your discussion, not the video) is that 
the layer is an ordinal and does not convey any information about group 
membership alone.  The way things are handled make sense when you consider that 
implementation detail.  If an object is at layer 8 but outside the group above 
(5-7) and you set the layer to 8 with relayergroupedcontrols true then it will 
move to be inside the above group.  If you want to move the object at layer 9 
up to 8 and stay outside of the above group, you have to actually move the 
layer 8 control down instead.

When I need to move something between nested groups I often (after making a 
backup) cut what I want to move and then edit the group I want to move it to so 
that I can paste into it.

I’m not suggesting this as something others should adopt, just pointing out 
that there seems to be a number of ways people deal with moving groups between 
nested groups. This seems to make it clear that someone who is new to Livecode 
would likely stumble when encountering this seemingly straightforward task.

As mentioned, you need to refresh the page view. Right-click the card content pane and choose 
Refresh.


My other comment is probably wrong. You should be able to set the target group to the same 
layer as another group, and the target will assume the other group's layer, and the other group 
will move down.

That's just how it works. You need to move it out of the enclosing group (try setting it to 
layer 1,) then move it to its new position. Brian mentioned that. Alternately, look at relayer 
and relayerGroupedControls in the dictionary.

@Matthias Rebbe 

Were are just replacing issues with new issues. Just looked at the github
for 'Navigator' only to see a heap of unresolved issues there too!
https://github.com/gcanyon/navigator/issues

Which version of LC?  I just did a brief test and it worked mostly as expected 
on 9.6/Win10.  Only thing that I couldn’t do was move a button between 2 groups 
(it would drop into one).  I had to move it above the group and then move the 
group.

Sean,

my answer will not solve your problems with the Project Browser...
but did you already try Geoff Canyons Navigator

https://gcanyon.wixsite.com/navigator 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/kz3zqi4botzglgq/navigator.zip?dl=1 


Navigator allows also to "relayer" objects by dragging and there it even works.

And when you are in a group editing mode, the layers in the Project Browser
are messed up beyond use. HOW?? Why has this STILL not been fixed since
v6 I'm just tired of asking. I'm stressed! Up against a deadline
(Again). No budget to pay the ridiculous fees LC ask. And absolutely no way
out... again! It blows my mind how I keep putting myself in this situation
for LC to KEEP letting me down because of stupid dumb ass issues that don't
