Re: Requests/Bugs

Request - option to tile images if the label is too big for the area. Had to write some methods in the achaea & lusternia ui's for that. Don't entirely understand this one - could you post an example? Request - label lists. Major downside labels have is that we can't make parts of them clickable (y...

Re: Linux version 1.1.1 Crashing on connect.

There's a typo in the 1.1.1 release that claims it is still 1.1.0. This is a long shot, but as for compiling yourself, does Mudlet load the correct version of Qt? For example, if you have both 4.5 and 4.6 and Mudlet compiles fine against 4.6, it might still be loading the 4.5 libraries at runtime. T...

Re: Table Functions - Lua

Thanks for sharing this, Rakon. For others reading this, there are also other ways to do sorted iteration, Rakon just listed the first method from lua-users.org/wiki/SortedIteration . That way is atrociously slow due to the inefficient inner loop of orderedNext(). In my test, a speed-up of nearly a ...

Re: Growl notifications

There is also in Qt the QSystemTrayIcon (docs here ) that looks like it has balloon popups with QSystemTrayIcon::showMessage(). Maybe not as fancy looking as standalone notification packages, but it is already included with Qt and cross platform (well, mac needs to install growl). In addition, a sma...

Re: How does one execute code from a variable?

Vadi beat me to the punch, so here is more explanation of what is going on. I use ^!(.*) for my alias pattern because I tend to use this feature a lot and /run[space] is just too much typing =) The lua code to run is assert(loadstring(matches[2]))() It must be exactly that. Also, it is handy to alia...

Re: Requests/Bugs

Something broke; this call gives me a grey label instead of transparent now: Sorry, I should have explained a little more about the color changes. All color information for the background of a label or miniconsole is now just in the 'color' field, including alpha. So your example should be changed ...

Re: Requests/Bugs

Enhance the Label type such that if an image is given to it during creation, it'll automatically make a shadow label with the image and the real one on top - so you can use echos in the label while still having a background fine. Is that something that can be fixed in the underlying Qt code? It wou...

Re: Adding colors to labels constructor?

I think the problem is coming from the fact that currently backgroundColor doesn't contain alpha information - that is stored in backgroundAlpha, so you'd need to add it explicitly like {x=?,y=? ... , backgroundAlpha=0} As is, you're creating a totally opaque black label because the a=0 in backgroun...
