SC Stickies screenshot
SC Stickies is a very simple utility project that lets you use fake "Stickies" in SuperCard projects. You may find these useful to add notes at runtime. To add a sticky to your project you just drag them from the right hand graphic on the palette to your project.

Once a sticky is on your card:

  • To move a sticky- Command drag
  • To resize a sticky - Comand drag the bottom right corner
  • To type in a sticky- click it
  • To delete a sticky option-shift-click [Thanks to Mike Richards]
  • To alter the color- option hold and if you haven't changed your sharedfile Script you get a color popup.
Stickies will work with AllowDragAndDrop true or false, you can use the project as a utility in the Project Editor, but of course you can't use the stickys produced until you run the project.
SC Stickies has been designed to be used with a runtime editor such as Tangerine, the SC4 RTE or ModuloMPI

Button Toy screenshot Quality of Screenshot gifs not as good as the real buttons.
This project makes SuperCard Graphics which act as buttons. They are 'Aqua' Type buttons, but the principal could be extended to other sort of button. The pictureData of the 'buttons' created is of the up and down states, the source rect of the pictureData is controled from the script installed in the graphic. Could be easly extended to other styles of 'buttons' if I had any graphic skills.

Ultimate Calendar screenshot This is a nifty Calendar by Doug Denby which can be incorpriated easily in your own projects, a gift from Doug to the SC community. Features:
  • The fields included in this project implement ways to visually display dates in a calendar format and retrieve dates from the user. There are no XCmds or Xfncs required. Two of the fields are aware of the user's setting for short date display and handle international dates. The third field handles partial dates such as year or year and month. A unique way of handling script size limitations is invoked in the second field which handles dates beyond the MacOS limits.

The stack is a work around for the fact that HyperCard cannot handle jpegs anf gifs with the AddColor XCMD
The handler will import any image file that QuickTime can use as a PICT resource and display it with addColor.
  • syntax AddColorImageFile [Display][, cdorBg][, transOrOpa]
  • display if true then the newly created PICT resource will be displayed on the cdOrBg layer with transparency transOrOpa if Display is not true the chosen file will be imported as a PICT resource, you can then use it with the Color Tools.
  • cdOrBg can be cd or bg defaults to the card layer if editBackground is false
  • transOrOpa can be t or o defaults to o
