  1. How can I download printer’s drivers from 123.HP.Com?

    At this moment, issues related to my HP printer are making me very infuriating that I just want to throw out my printer out of the window. The minute before it was printing pretty good but now, it shows printer driver is missing. I didn’t change a bit in any of the settings of printer so why I am getting this error. Right now, I have no idea what to do. So, I just needed someone’s guidance for downloading drivers from 123.HP.Com website. Can anyone out there help me? For More Details Visit on https://l-123hp.com/.

  2. Option to clamp/lock mouse cursor inside the game window

    Many types of desktop games require the ability to freely move the mouse cursor, but since there is no way to clamp/lock the cursor inside of the game window, many types of desktop games are currently impossible to create using Corona.

    Even when in fullscreen, if the user has two or more displays, the mouse will simply fall off the other screen.

    For games where moving the mouse is required, this is a necessary feature that we should be able to toggle on or off programmatically.

  4. Proper text field for Win32

    The native text field is very poor in Win32 applications, really hindering application development.
    Transparent background, and removing the border (stroke) are probably the most needed options.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  9. Implement io.popen to get values back from shell

    os.execute lets us run shell commands which is really useful for desktop applications. However you can not read the output of these applications from the command line. io.popen would fix that and make life even easier

  10. OS X Desktop Notifications

    It would be really helpful if we could send push notifications to an OSX Desktop app in the same way we can for iOS and Android.

    In particular it'd be really good to be able to put an 'unread messages' red notification badge on the app icon in the Mac taskbar.

    Happy to fund a plugin developer on this if that is possible, though I understand it may need changes in the Corona core before this can happen.

  11. Add desktop base directories

    It would be really helpful if we had access to other directories for quick access to assets located outside our container on desktop apps.

    For example, i am developing an editor, in which users can choose their own images to texture their levels. However, currently there is no easy way to load any image into Corona outside of our project.

    The proposed solution:
    Add a system.RootDirectory or system.AbsoluteDirectory constant to be able to load images/assets from any place, using the absolute path.

    As an additional feature, folders like the user folder, global temporary folder and many others could be added…
