Deleted a class and got an exception [FIXED]

See screenshot: Screen Shot 2016-07-02 at 11.29.58 PM.png Is there anyway I can save the state of the project of the stack at the time I get the exception? That way I could attach this to the Bug report. You can re-create by opening attached project and then try and delete class "spin2" stopMe2.gpp

Why does while loop execute more often than forever?

See attached project whileVsFor.gpp , one sprite spins using forever and the other spins using while. The while cause a much faster spinning even though the turn values are the same. Okay I can guess this has to do with the event loop to process scripts and perhaps each script has a maximum number o...

Delete Shared Variable doesn't complain when in use

Tested delete an instance variable in 050 and it worked fine. Even complained when I was still using it and wouldn't let me delete it. But when I created a shared variable, added it to a move block and then tried to delete the shared variable it did not complain and removed it from the pallette. But...

Re: UI Request: Hide other areas?

One thought would be to allow everything to be scriptable. I know it is, but I haven't figured out how to set the width/height and/or show/hide the various parts of the UI. This would be useful to help deal with cognitive overload and help guide students focus. In particular one could hide the block...

Re: Text on the stage?

+1 Plain text is a good start :) +1 A book morph (like in Etoys) would be great I've use the book in Etoys to get students to create versions of their projects. Since there is no easy undo, they can create branches on new pages using duplicate page (which also creates new copies of all the objects) ...

Re: Same name used for multiple instances of an object in id block

Okay I found "Naming instances globally?" entry in Requests viewtopic.php?f=13&t=38&sid=0f88e5af071 ... 213b5f86d5

So this is a duplicate of that. I like the idea of "name this instance"

How do I allow objects "accept drops"

I am trying to re-write the DragNDropList widget. I would like to be able to have it accept any object dropped onto it (similar to "accept drops" in Etoys). So two questions: 1) How can I detect another object being "dropped" onto the my widget? The thought being then add the dropped object to my wi...
