answer file under OSX El Capitan no longer has titlebar

Mike Kerner via use-livecode
First, I realize I am on old versions of things. I am using LC 6.7.11
and running mostly under OSX Mavericks (10.9.5)

I just discovered that - under El Capitan (10.11.x) and presumably 10.12
- the LiveCode 'ask file <prompt>' statement no longer display the
<prompt> text because the open file dialog under El Capitan no longer
displays a titlebar!

This may have been covered in some past discussion on this email list.
If so can someone tell me if there is some work-around for this.

OR if this is the first people have heard of this, can someone verify
this issue?

I seem to have prompt text in the title bar of the file dialog. But that’s with Sierra not El Capitan.

It's the answer file only, not the ask file:

The following workaround is from a bug report, I can't
remember the number and who found it (not me, at any rate).

put "I m the missing prompt" into pp
answer file pp with myPath titled pp

Hi all,

I guess Hermann is referring to this bug report
http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=16264.

This bug was fixed in LC 8.0.0.

Best,
Panos

I get the title prompt with answer too, without any workaround.

But talking about that for a moment, it would need to be this:

on mouseUp

local pp,myPath

put "I m the missing prompt" into pp

answer file pp with myPath titled pp

end mouseUp


In LiveCode 8 you can’t get away with:

put "I m the missing prompt" into pp

It was fixed in a later LC version. I get a title even without the
"titled" parameter, and I'm still on El Capitan. I remember when it
broke but it was fixed pretty soon after, I just can't recall which
version that was.

AW: answer file under OSX El Capitan no longer has titlebar

Mike Kerner via use-livecode
In reply to this post by Mike Kerner via use-livecode
Thank you to everyone, especially hh and colin.

I was using "answer file <prompt> with no "titled" clause. I need to
remain on 6.7.11 for this immediate work, so updating to LC 8.x is not
an option at this time (that's next on the list).

Adding the titled clause makes it work just fine. Thank you all!
