Re: Hollywood 8: Supremacy out now!

I don't know if there are many users outside Amiga community using Hollywood, or has it got any coverage on mainstream media, but I would see it'd be important to get more users there. It doesn't matter on which platform users are and it would benefit us all. Maybe we could try to help to spread the...

Re: WaitLeftMouse takes 4 seconds to react on m68k

I tried your example on my A1200/060/P96 machine, and didn't notice any delays. The two lines printed instantly when I clicked around.

Re: Notify on window resize?

If there's a Hollywood display embedded in your GUI, you just have to listen to the normal "SizeWindow" event for the Hollywood display and then you should be notified about size changes :) And if there isn't a Hollywood display, any way then? I just recently wanted to scale an MUI (Royale) image i...

Re: Refresh issue when dynamically changing objects in a non active window

Yeah, well.. it seems to refresh the window on any event, so I made a workaround like this now "SetTimeout(Nil, Function() EndFunction, 10)" just to trigger some event :)

Refresh issue when dynamically changing objects in a non active window

I think this might be a MorphOS bug and reported there, but as I haven't got any feedback from MorphOS team yet, I thought to ask what Andreas thinks about it too. If it'd be something in Hollywood after all... If I change objects in a group in a MUI window dynamically, and the window isn't active, ...

Re: Popobject class missing

Do you mean Group.PageMode or something else? The mentioned one does work and I've used it in several occasions, like for example in this prefs window.

Re: capture cli output

No, I think what you're doing is the best way to capture CLI output with Hollywood. Would it be possible to implement an event handler that would get triggered always when a program started with the Run() command would output something? RunOutput or such... it would be handy when creating GUIs for ...

Re: StartNotify / EndNotify

I can see some cases it would be handy. I've been asked to code some sort of filemanager and there it would be needed to see if the displayed directory is changed (never promised to do it though, but maybe someone else would at least). Or if doing some sort of checks if something needs processing, f...

Re: How to remove text output/text object

If you use layers, then DisplayTextObject() creates a new layer, which can be removed like any other layer. But if you don't use layers, then everything you draw on the display will stay there until you clear it manually somehow. This is the same no matter what functions you use to draw there (text ...

Re: Best way to save settings etc.

If you encrypt zipped files I suggest to do not store the password in clear in your code, use a function to decode the stored pwd and then use it to decrypt your data, also do not store the password in variable names like "pwd" or "pass" or "password" so that it can be harder to find the pwd assign...
