    • 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.

            • 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.

                                • Mute a listener

                                  There should be a way to mute a listener, so when you have a pop-up with it's own listener that will make the previously active listener, if the user clicks off the pop-up window. Right now, you have to delete the listener, put up the pop-up and gather your data, then re-install the listener once the pop-up window is gone.

                                  What I suggest is a new method that will temporarily mute a listener and can be unmuted when you want the background listener to be active again.

                                  From what I see, I think it should be easily implemented and have…

                                  • Support for image sheets in composite.fill.effect

                                    Hey guys,
                                    I've found this amazing tool here called "Dynamic Shader".
                                    With this you can bring easily nice light effects to your game.

                                    There's just one big thing, the objects that you can apply the light on can't be sprites from an image sheet. It must be a single image.

                                    The developer of the tool said this here:
                                    <quote>
                                    The graphics 2.0 composite.fill.effect parameters require a "type" (like "image") and a location of the image files. Since image sheets are one big file, I have to break up the sprites and normal maps on those sheets and re-save them as…

                                      Add a setting to clear the output screen of the simulator at the start of each application relaunch. This is a companion to the relaunch on program change, which is handy but leaves the output screen with combined output, not just the latest execution. To find the top, you have to slowly scan through the output looking for the latest top...

                                      • Live wallpapers for Android

                                        It has been mentioned some time before but we're still unable to make live wallpapers with Corona SDK.

                                        Scott's Harrison "wallpaper" plugin only supports images which can be set as static wallpapers.

                                        Requested features:

                                        - set live wallpapers based on coded mechanics (moving images or simple math figures - circles, rectangles, changing their size)
                                        - launching coded mechanics when user touches the screen with live wallpaper set (creating sparks or something like that in the place user touches the screen)
                                        - app should work as widget (?) - somehow it should be…
