Let us know what you want adding to DroidScript.  We've got a growing 'Todo' list but we are not quite sure what people are going to want the most, so let us know in this thread.

first of all thanks for the new V2 thread :)

I created a project in D.S in the name "Hello World" and when I uninstalled D.S and Installed the new one avilable in Google play, then my project gone.

i know that my project is replaced with "Hello World" sample. My request is the stop D.S to delete the project named "Hello World" and replace it with the Sample :)

2 idea: add shearing scripts. New menu in droidscript and in menu options send script and download script. Who sends script to scripts menu be added this script and people can download this.
Thank's for read and sorry for my bad english.

Will you please add scrollable tabs so I can stop using app.CreateScroller with multiple list controls to create the effect of swiping between lists?

Also, if at all possible, will you please add more functionality and control over the notification controls?

I know there's more, so I'll post back shortly.

On a side note, I would like to thank you for this fantastic application. I got the hang of it rather quickly and has sparked my interest in Java.

I'm currently creating a music player/music sharing application. Right now it's pretty basic. I have three list controls, a drawer control with application & account settings, a registration dialog (creates instance in database), Sign In/Sigb Out, RGB controls to alter the color of the application, a background service to handle all media queue requests, homemade toasts to handle end-user notifications from the application + error handling, playlist building, saving & loading...

This is just the tip of the iceberg. I still need to add a chat feature, file sharing and some redundancies & security.

It would be awesome if you could make handling BLE devices easier. (Right now I somehow cannot make it work using either DroidScript's built in Bluetooth commands or navigator.bluetooth although the same code works in chrome.)

Hi Dave,
it will be very nice to handle all .js files in one project direct on the mobilephone,
like the wifi pc browser tool it can do.
The most time i am scripting on my phone and there i cant edit the other .js files.
No needed a deep scan in debug or something...only to switch between the scripts and edit them...

thank you and greetings from Berlin

Than you Netpower8,

i allready have the app (including prime).
But as a beginner on coding, droidscript has a view feature, i cant miss, so the next time i will prefer to use droidscript.
actually i have to switch between this two apps to handle my subscripts, but its not comfortable for me...
thats why i wish the possibility, handling subscripts in droidscript direct on my phone.

Nice day

Hello Dave Smart, I would like you to test this code so simple that it does not work correctly in droidscript. I think the error is due to a conflict when the scroll is moved. Thanks for the help and your scripts.


list = [];

function OnStart()
{

    lay = app.CreateLayout("Absolute");

    scroll = app.CreateScroller(1, 1);
    scroll.SetPosition(0, 0);
    lay1 = app.CreateLayout("Linear", "FillXY,VCenter");
    lay1.SetBackColor("yellow");

    for (i = 0; i < 44; i++)
    {
        list[i] = app.CreateText("t" + i, 1, 0.08, "FontAwesome, Left");
        list[i].SetBackColor("#99bb99");
        list[i].SetTextColor("Black");
        list[i].SetTextSize(22);
        list[i].SetMargins(0, 0.002);
        list[i].SetPadding(0.06, 0.020, 0, 0);

        list[i].SetOnTouch(OnTouch);

        lay1.AddChild(list[i]);
        scroll.AddChild(lay1);
    }
    lay.AddChild(scroll);
    app.AddLayout(lay);

}

function OnTouch(ev)
{
    if (ev.action == "Down")
    {
        this.SetBackColor("yellow");
    }
    else if
    {
        this.SetBackColor("#99bb99");
    }
}

1. Please add more option in downloader like download progress on background or in notification and support download by header deposition not only by filename such as Google video link download.

2. Add view "Full Screen" in video player/stream

3. Add history visits just something like history.back in JavaScript browser

@ridwan. The Downloader object already supports hidden or visible progress using the 'NoDialog' option, also you might want to try the latest alpha version of DS because you can specify a target file name for downloads for situations where you have a complex download url without a file name.

HI there, One problem having with Droid Script, just read the following cases: 

Case 1: I turned ON hotpot on Device B ( this device is not have running DroidScript ).
Case 2: I connected my phone (Device A) to Device B over WiFi, then I enabled WiFi editor (editing scripts on PC). It's worked fine, i mean it enabled.
Case 3: Keeping WiFi editing turn on, I closed the WiFi connection of Device A, and turned on the Hotspot on Device A, after that I connected my Laptop to Device A over WiFi, and entered 127.0.0.1:port into laptop's Chrome browser, Chrome just open the Editor which is nice.

Now, Considering all the cases, it seems I am using editor not over WiFi but hotspot, so i am thinking to remove that function from the app, i mean, when I turn ON editing over WiFi it says "Please turn on WiFI", what the hell. So, Please remove that option and add Editing over Hotspot as wel...

I hope you understand what I was trying to say, if not just mail me..

@ansari  Hotspots are actually Wifi (your device becomes a Wifi access point)

@ridwan You can prevent the user cancelling the download by using the 'NoCancel' option.  You might want to use the app.Download() function instead though, then the Android download manager will deal with your download independently from your app.

A menu command to install the app, currently i need to make a apk, then browse to the apk folder with a file explorer on phone and install.
Maybe combine these two functions as a single command in the Droidscript menu. (If apk builder was bought) - Should be easy.

A menu command to copy a app to a new app (new name)

A menu command to backup, restore and move / retrieve a app (to google drive) - Is there a google drive Plugin for reading / writing from google drive coming out soon?

I have an other Idea like that:
It would be really helpful for beginners to have an area where you can search for topics in the forum directly in DroidScript - many people dont search in the forum but asking their questions answered about 100 times before - maybe that can prevent that

Search and Replace in the editor would be nice.

Also...  I have a bunch of Python code for doing various work-related stuff whose functionality I'd like to include in my DroidScript apps
To save me the work having to rewrite various big chunks of Python in DroidScript, I wondered whether DroidScript can play ball with Brython (i.e. Python implemented in JavaScript).
I guessed it might be possible when using the IDE for HTML5 stuff.

Thanks and good luck.

I did have a look in the Wiki and the IDE docs but could find no mention.  I guess I could have tried Ctrl+F for search, that being fairly standard, but Ctrl+F two times for replace could have fooled me.  One normally expects some kind of magnifying glass icon, as in the on-Android device DroidScript editor.  Thanks for the tip.

First thank you for a terrific product. Can you allow the SetList and GetList methods in the List control to take an extra argument which will allow us to specify the sub item separator and avoid the hardwired colon (:) and the even wierder ^c^ sequence! After all you do provide control of the item delimeter (sic). Thanks

I don't know how limited widgets are - would they support full DroidScript power with canvases, layout animations etc?
