  1. Resize the window in desktop apps (from the app)

    Being able to change the size of the window in runtime would be great - ideally being able to select what part corner, if any, gets fixed and which ones move.

    • On Demand Resources support for iOS

      Extend current plug-in which support only tvOS to iOS. It seems that the effort is minimal.

      • Visual guide(s) on Corona Simulator

        Ability to enter code which would then display a line/box/etc given particular position(s).

        For example.

        If I enter a code such as
        simulatorLine.y = myImage.y

        Then the simulator will display a horizontal line at the particular y location.
        This code will not impact the actual application and will only be a visual guide in the Simulator

        This would allow me to judge where images start and finish. In particular when the images share the same colour.

        • Tezos XTZ Blockchain wallet integration

          Tezos cryptocurrency could be easily integrated to Corona SDK that would enormously benefit from it, as this would allow to store real money in the platform and purchase items with it. There are TezosJ SDK for Android, TezosJ plain Java and also EZTZ for Javascript.

          • Support for a variable time per frame in display.newSprite()

            As of now, sprites can have sequences where you'd have to specify the 'time' it takes to complete the animation. It would be great to also have the possibility to specify a sequence where the frame time is variable per frame. (eg. frame 1 = 100ms, frame 2-5 = 60ms, frame 6 = 33 ms)

            I could imagine the following syntax methods:
            1: a new property for the sequenceData called 'variableTime'. It would consists of an array where the time is given per frame: {variableTime = {100, 60, 60, 60, 60, 60, 33}}
            2: a new property for the sequenceData…

                • add native.actionsheet as in native.showAlert

                  Dear Corona-developers,

                  it would be awesome if the native-library could be extended and a native.actionsheet(explanation, {button1: color, button2:color, button3: color}{cancelbutton: color}) was there.

                  Someone asked earlier this year:
                  https://forums.coronalabs.com/topic/72226-actionsheet-will-it-ever-be-supported-in-native/

                  Later this year I also came accross this topic:
                  https://forums.coronalabs.com/topic/73146-ios-context-menu-white-background-with-blue-or-red-menu-items-to-do-or-already-there/

                  Rob told us that this can be done manually and yes, basically one can write code that results in an actionsheet that looks almost exactly like the native actionsheet. But at least I couldn't make it match the original one exaclty 100%, so I'm afraid - at least to me - this will never be a perfect solution.

                  Since native.showAlert works…

                  • Add support for KaiOS

                    KaiOS is a rapidly growing platform. It would be great is corona projects could be exported to it.

                    • Twitter keyboard type for native.newTextBox

                      native.newTextField supports all the keyboard types, including the UIKeyboardTypeTwitter twitter keyboard with easy access to hashtag # and @ charachters. Great. However, in the multi-line native.newTextBox element doesn't support these.

                      Please add the other keyboard types for the native.newTextBox element!

                      • Universal CRT support

                        Hi.

                        Now that a new public build is out of the way I'd like to sneak in a feature request for a future one. :)

                        It sounds like Microsoft is actually trying to address the issue of CRT runtime changes with each Visual Studio iteration.

                        At the same time, Visual Studio 2013, and the associated runtime, is starting to show its age, losing out on C++14 and now C++17 features introduced in the more recent editions, as well as a whole host of open source libraries built on these new capabilities. Naturally any code striving to be portable is held…

                          • Support iOS Metal

                            This has already been requested and declined, however, with the latest release of iOS 12 and Mac Mojave, Apple will no longer be supporting OpenGL down the road and this is a must if we want to continue to make Corona apps for iOS or Mac OS.

                            It's the future for iOS graphic handling, please make this a priority sooner than later. I will no longer be looking at Corona for any new projects unless I know this will be supported eventually.

                                • Support modification of package path

                                  It would be super helpful if Corona SDK could support modifications to the package path (http://lua-users.org/wiki/PackagePath).

                                  This would - among other things - support the easy setup of Lua-only Luarocks installed in a local tree:
                                  http://leafo.net/guides/customizing-the-luarocks-tree.html

                                  This would make code sharing and working with external libraries/dependencies much easier, but for it to work we need to be able to modify the package path:

                                  package.path = 'lua_modules/share/lua/5.1/?.lua;lua_modules/share/lua/' .. version .. '/?/init.lua;' .. package.path

                                  • Disable Native WebView Zoom buttons

                                    There's no way to disable Zoom Buttons of the WebView in Corona and this is quite frustrating because they continously appear on screen using Android.

                                    However, as posted on Stack Overflow, there's a way to do it in Java overriding some methods. Explanation can found here: https://stackoverflow.com/a/11901948

                                    Best solution would be to have a boolean property like "zoomButtonsEnabled" to control this.

                                    I don't know if on iOS there's the same problem.

                                    Thanks in advance!

                                    • Radial Gravity with Particle Systems

                                      (I'm not sure what category this should be under, so feel free to mark it under whatever is related to LiquidFun/Physics.)

                                      LiquidFun's API allows for radial gravity via the ReportParticle callback of the QueryAABB and QueryShapeAABB methods. Note LiquidFun's methods ParticleApplyForce and ParticleApplyLinearImpulse.

                                      Core features being requested:
                                      - Expose LiquidFun's ParticleApplyForce and ParticleApplyLinearImpulse methods on ParticleSystem objects.
                                      - Add an index property to the "hits" table returned from ParticleSystem:queryRegion()
                                      - Expose LiquidFun's QueryShapeAABB method so we can query circular regions. This allows for more natural/accurate radial gravity behavior.

                                      Alternatively, feel free to encapsulate these ideas into your own preferred methods.…

                                      • Easier way to POST simple text field forms

                                        Easier way to POST simple strings that then look like simple form Post fields on the server side (simpler forms and processing like with html forms). Easier way to POST simple string that look like form fields on the server side (simpler forms and processing like with html forms). Would help tremendously with creating accounts and also all business apps

                                        • Composer stops previous scene's runtime events and event listeners

                                          It would be great if the composer could handle stopping all runtime events and event listeners of the previous scene when goToScene is called (or when a new scene is loaded).
