      • Ability to place native object below Corona view [Corona native]

        Ability to create plugins which allow placing native objects under corona view. This can be useful for video player where we could build UI with corona instead of native elements.

          • looking to switch my website to Drupal CMS

            I am a website developer and very new in this field.I just completed my master in computer science and started to working as a website developer. I'm looking to switch my website( https://sovinco.com/ ) over to a Drupal CMS and was wondering how easy this would be and if anyone could point me in the right direction for some significant help resources?

            • A manual "simulateTouch( event )"

              I would like the ability to manually fire a touch event that gets treated like a regular touch event.

              Essentially how the mouse is treated on desktop builds where display objects get told about it as if they were actually touched.

              I'm hoping that as this ability must already be built into Corona it might be relatively easy to allow us to hook into it?

              Please see this thread for more info - https://forums.coronalabs.com/topic/71198-manually-fire-a-touch-event

                • PDF Reader For Android

                  need a plugin to read pdf files on android, like quicklook on ios.

                  I use systemopenurl to display pdf, I think it is inefficient because it requires another pdf reader application

                  • App orientation based on device type

                    Ability to set app orientation based on device type. For example: phone will be portrait, tablet will be landscape.

                    It would be the best to use full orientation settings for each device type.

                    This feature is essential for mobile app development where business apps most often need to be in different orientations for phone and tablet.

                      • contentBounds should be able to be accessed as non-rounded value

                        Have these just as integers prevents us from using it for positioning. Since an object with 'x' position of 0 has the same xMin as an object with 'x' position of 0.4.

                        I understand this can't be changed all of a sudden because it could break existing implementations, but wouldn't it be an idea to add an additional one? (eg. preciseContentBounds or display.setDefault("contentBoundMode", "float"))

                        This will make it viable to use for positioning, as described in this post.

                        https://forums.coronalabs.com/topic/70936-is-there-a-reason-why-contentbounds-are-just-provided-as-integers/?p=370733

                        • emboss=true button text should fade properly

                          Currently if you set emboss=true when creating a button object, and then fade that button object using alpha values, the embossed text doesn't fade properly.

                          Simple test case (requires some kind of button image file):

                          local widget = require "widget"
                          local composer = require( "composer" )
                          local scene = composer.newScene()

                          local aboutBN = widget.newButton{
                          label="Embossed Button Text",
                          labelColor = { default={ 0, 0, 0 }, over={ 0, 0, 0, 0.5 } },
                          defaultFile="ButtonBig.png",
                          overFile="ButtonBig_down.png",
                          width=154, height=40,
                          x = display.contentCenterX,
                          y = display.contentCenterY + 120,
                          emboss=true,
                          alpha = 0
                          }
                          aboutBN.alpha=0

                          transition.to(aboutBN, {alpha=1, time=5000, delay=500})
                          transition.to(aboutBN, {alpha=0, time=5000, delay=5500})

                                • Win32 Toolbar icon with context-sensitive menu

                                  Create functionality that allows us to have a context menu on a application's toolbar/taskbar icon to include a context-sensitive menu created in app. This would be great for apps that are frequently minimized.
