Re: Sleep Function

your pause routine that uses screen touch sensing to end the pause needs a GRAPHICS command at the start. Yes, that is true. I probably should have mentioned that in the description above the function, that the touch-interrupt functionality only works while on the GRAPHICS screen. Whatever you do, ...

Re: Sleep Function

You make many valid points, and I definitely agree that for most applications the changes I made are unnecessary and overkill. I just wanted to provide some alternatives here in the thread you started so others can choose what works best for them. For longer pauses, processor efficiency becomes a bi...

Re: Sleep Function

For accuracy and to lessen the load on the CPU, why not ditch the PAUSEs altogether? /* These sleep functions are replacements for the PAUSE function. The PAUSE function does not relieve CPU load during the duration of the PAUSE, whereas these functions use SLOWDOWN until the specified duration has ...

Re: iConvert V3.3

I downloaded and used the first version and haven't redownloaded it yet, but I have been following all the discussion and additions. Went to download the latest and it cannot find iconvert3.png. I looked through all the different threads and found the animated GIF but don't see a PNG. Is there a pla...

Re: iConvert V3.3

Haven't posted yet on this but great job on this app. Very handy. Maybe you could have the program not run the update currencies script until the "Currency" category is selected. That way you don't have to wait for that data to be retrieved every time you want to convert something. I would guess tha...

Re: Souped-Up Circles

This looks awesome! Especially the first picture you have posted. I'm really interested to see how you created that effect. Can't wait to try it out.

Re: Storing Data in Images

One would think that they are reversible - that after drawing a pixel on the screen you would get the exact red, green blue and alpha values that you drew. I started to have doubts about this, and did some tests. I found that the value of A when it is less than 1 always changes the R, G and B value...

Re: Programming Problem

You cannot use the "smart quotes" ( “ ” ‘ ’ ) that have a direction to them. You must use straight quotes ( " and ' ). Press and hold the quotation mark key or apostrophe key on your iOS keyboard to get straight quotes. Or turn them off in Settings > General > Keyboards > Smart Punctuation. For more...

Re: MSGBOX Library (clone of VBA's MsgBox function)

Thanks! Glad everything works well for you. I try and simulate iPad screen ratios on my iPhone during testing, but of course, that isn't the same as having an actual iPad to test on. You may find you want to tweak some of the default parameter values or even the hardcoded sizing values I have in the...
