Iconifying via HideWindow event doesn't allow uniconify by double clicking the app icon

If I use the Exchange program to iconify this kind of program, I can't uniconify it by double clicking the app icon. I can uniconify by Exchange, or if I hide the program twice with Exchange, then it uniconifies by double-clicking... or if I have some events happening within the Hollywood script, th...

Re: Exchange Interface and MUI Royale Project

Yea... now that I try to refresh my memory, I thought that this might get fixed by the "MUI refresh" fix, because work-around is similar, but I don't think that's the case afterall... so I'll make a report soon when I still remember it :)

Re: Exchange Interface and MUI Royale Project

I've made it like this: Function p_MUI_Hack() If mui.Get("app", "iconified") Then SetTimeout(2, p_MUI_Hack, 500) EndFunction Function p_Iconify(msg) If msg.action="HideWindow" mui.Set("app", "iconified", True) p_MUI_Hack() Else mui.Set("app", "iconified", False) EndIf EndFunction InstallEventHandler...

Re: Serial.device selection under amigaos

Oh yeah, I haven't checked serial stuff in Hollywood yet, but if you really can't define the device driver to be used, it's quite limiting in many aspects. Not only in MorphOS, but on real Amigas you also might want to use USB serial adapters (I have Spider USB on my main classic Amiga). And not to ...

Re: pdf.GetText fails to get text with some PDFs

I have no idea what those two characters are, because I can't get them with Hollywood and I don't know PDF format that well that could I dig them out with a hex editor or are the texts compressed etc. For me it looks that when I skip the two characters, I still get all visible text from the page. At...

Re: GetSystemLanguage() return value

You can compare the result from GetSystemLanguage() to those constants to figure out which language is in use. For example like this: lang = GetSystemLanguage() Switch lang Case #LANGUAGE_ITALIAN: ; Do your Italian stuff here. Case #LANGUAGE_FRENCH: ; Do your French stuff here. Default: ; Do it in E...

pdf.GetText fails to get text with some PDFs

I found some PDF which has text on pages, but pdf.GetText doesn't give anything if I try to extract all the text from a page. But if I skip the last two characters and try to get the rest of the page, then it works. Here is a test file, and here an example code: @REQUIRE "polybios" f$="c-kasetti.pdf...

Re: Best way to do lots of moving things on screen?

This is a weird issue... I modified the test code a bit to open a small window (800x600) and to run the test first with software rendering and then with hardware rendering: EscapeQuit(True) @DISPLAY {Width = 800, Height = 600} CreateBrush(1, 5, 5, #WHITE, {hardware=False}) BeginDoubleBuffer(False) S...

As example, if without layers using two simple buttons, first one a large rectangle area, and then the next one smaller, inside that larger rectangle area, then if i click on that smaller area, then which button would be activated, the big or the small one? Overlapping button behaviour is currently...
