      Can we get a more concise description of this? There is a lot of conversation in the forum thread, but it would help our engineers to have a solid description of what's being asked for and perhaps what API's or changes to API's you think could help solve this issue?

        Why not do this:

        ransition.to ( Ball, {time = 1000, delay=2000, delta = true, x = -100, iterations = 0)

          This already works on animated sprites (corner point quad deformation). I just tested it. Where is the confusion on this request? What details might I be missing in the request?

            While we evaluate this request, please consider looking at:

            https://github.com/coronalabs-samples/business-app-sample

            It has examples now of database usage, input form setup, etc.

              Do you have a list of providers of ads for Desktop Apps? In general there are very few desktop apps that run ads as such there are very few ad providers for them.

                @Jerejigga beat me to it. His EAT tool does exactly this. You can use a GUI to build your build.settings and such. It builds all the mobile icons.

                  We've supported this for a while, at least we think this what your talking about:

                    You have this already. It's called display.contentBounds. It returns a table that contains entries for .xMin, .yMin, .xMax, .yMax. In this case your .right would be object.contentBounds.xMax.

                    Does this solve the issue?

                      widget.newTableView() has a reload() function to re-render what's on the screen. We've added parameter passing with insertRow() to help make it more Model-View-Controller like.

                      Is this still an issue?

                        Can you provide a better detailed description of what this feature would do? When and where you would use it?

                        Thanks

                            If it's in the docs, it should be working. I'll mark this complete.

                              There has been no progress on this. There will likely not be any for a while. After talking with the engineers about this, there are too many problems that are difficult to impossible to solve. For instance HTML5, while it has "local storage", it's more key-value pair and not something that could replicate system.DocumentsDirectory. So no saved files, no downloaded files, and no SQLite databases. There are too many browser dependencies to have to deal with. Audio is problematic and the list goes on and on.

                              For now, our engineering resources are best spent on other things, so this will continue to stay out there, and we will continue to discus it and see what the possibilities are.

                                I changed this to also include OS X builds as people are asking for it as well.

                                  Can someone help refine this request? What protocols? What services? "Streaming video" is a very broad category and can't easily be implemented. What would you like to do with this? More details please.

                                    We need to finish up some additional features for Windows desktop app support first. Composer GUI for Windows needs these features. Please continue to vote this feature up.

                                      Can you provide a better description for what you want?

                                        Can you provide more context as to what you're wanting here? The Activity and Social plugins as well as the SMS popup should provide this. What's missing?

                                          Admin note: 10/29/16 — We are changing this to “Under review” as we investigate if this something that can be done.


                                          Right off the bat, I want to say we really like UNIX-style systems. And Linux is a great back-end platform.

                                          That said, there are several roadblocks with this request.

                                          First, there’s no clarity on what is being asked. Do you want to ship an app on Linux? Do you want to have the Corona Simulator work on Linux? It may sound pedantic, but reading the comments, it does seem like some people are reading this differently.

                                          Second, from a business perspective, it’s hard for us to justify resources for Linux. When it comes to desktop platforms, we’d rather focus efforts on platforms that have critical mass desktop marketshare (e.g. http://coronalabs.com/blog/2015/03/02/corona-sdk-is-now-free/)

                                          Third, Linux would be an extremely challenging platform b/c there are so many flavors of Linux, and…

                                          @Aina and @Anonymous, I should have signed that, as we're all sharing the admin account.

                                          That particular note was from me (Walter).

                                          Either way, we don't think there's a sufficient business case today (maybe that'll change in time), and combined with the resources required to make Corona Simulator as solid as it is on Win32 and Mac OS X, the numbers just don't add up.

                                          Maybe you have a different formula where the numbers add up differently. If you do, let's talk.
