Latest fixes and new features* (back to top)

Version 1.6 -- Released September 2000

Added:

  • capacity for users to reclaim the control-mouseDown interface to display their own contextual menus. You can do this on an object by object basis, or apply it to whole cards, background, windows and projects.To get Tangerine to pass you the mouseDown message while the control key is down, insert this handler in the proper object's script:
    on wantsTGcontrol
    return true
    end wantsTGcontrol
    You can then use Stéphane Leys controlKeyDown() external to make sure the control key is down and pop your own contextual menu.
  • a new command to support the Font menu in the Japanese version of superCard. The Font menu is named differently in the Japanese (FONTO) and US (Font) version of SC. To toggle between the two versions, type "fixFontMenu" in the message box.
  • the ability to insert front and back scripts from any object in the "Script" module of the "Object Lists" palette. Editing front or back script will no longer change the order of the scritps as in the previous versions.
  • First version of the plug-in architecture.
  • double click on any of TG palette's dragBar to collapse the palette.
  • support for aliases in the "Recent" menu. Thanks to two XFCNs from Mark Lucas' s wetWare collection: alias2Path() and path2Alias(). The "Recent" menu should now find your files even if you've moved them around.
  • The "live" feature which makes it possible to isolate the user's project from all superCard generated messages. This creates a work environment similar to superEdit's or the Project Editor's Edit mode where your projects won't respond to events and messages or execute their scripts. See the accompanying "TG live feature" text file for more info on this feature.

Changed:

  • Menukeys not used by Tangerine are now passed down the inheritance chain. For instance, you can now type command-/ to open from the superTalk reference project.
  • Removed the "allowMouseMessages" checkBox in the superCard preferences module of the Tangerine manager. Setting this option repeatedly caused type 1 crashes. Use the menu equivalent instead: View->Toggle->allowMouseMessages.

Fixed:

  • a bug in TG's opening sequence when the user project had a dangling delimiter (thanks DJ:).
  • a bug in tracking the arrowKeys when modernLook is true and commandKey is down.
  • reserved word in text tools -> styles palette.
  • bug in the new "live" feature, beta b1 to b2 . This bug caused occasional "Where is?" standard file dialogs.
  • SC-Web projects are now recognized when TG is launched from the message box.
  • a bug in the searchScript utility. The bug showed up when using the "replace" option in SC 3.x (Thanks to Lorenz Tschudi for the fix:-).
