Open recent File Menu

dunbarxx via use-livecode

For the life of me I cannot remember how to clear this menu?

Most Mac Apps have a Clear Menu item at the foot of the drop down menu, why can’t Livecode?


Thanks

Terry

Has this ever been requested formally? Seems like a pretty easy add.

Not that it is relevant here, but I have a recent customer popup menu in my app, and even IT has a Clear Menu selection. :-)

Yes every time someone comes up with a useful snippet like this I add it to my Development menu. :-)

Re: Open recent File Menu

A better command to use is (at least in 8/9, not sure about 7):
revIDESetPreference "cRecentStackPaths", empty

And, yes it has been requested formally (2/19/07):
https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=4382

PR submitted against develop:
https://github.com/livecode/livecode-ide/pull/1984

Hopefully this will make it into the first RC for 9.1 (I guess it could
even be pulled into 9.0.1 though)

Thanks,
Brian

Just reviewed it thanks again Brian. Still wondering why it’s useful given the menu cleans out deleted stacks by itself but it seems enough other people think it is to make it worthwhile ;-)

Cheers

Re: Open recent File Menu

dunbarxx via use-livecode
One reason is that sometimes I have to go to a backup or archive of a stack to revert some script or object deletion. When that happens I get 2 instances of the recent stack, but now they are prepended by (sometimes) long paths. Also, I will open sample stack from time to time, and those stay in the menu cluttering it up until more recent stacks push them out.
