LiveCode IDE is resizing my stack!?

Could you move your resizing code to the first card instead? This might allow the "magic" to happen, and then add your own.


Or perhaps send a command in half a second or so after the stack opens. Then you are guaranteed to work your magic after the IDE does its own.

Subject: LiveCode IDE is resizing my stack!?


I'm working on a stack that is nearly as tall as my screen. Every time I open 
the stack, the LC IDE resizes it (chops off the bottom) to fit nicely in between 
the Mac menu bar and the dock. I don't want this to happen. I need it to be the 
actual size, even if it's partially obscured by something else (the dock, for 
example). Can I prevent this behavior somehow? And this is not the strange Mac 
menu bar issue where the stack resizes to compensate for a menu. I don't even 
have a menu set on this stack.

I've even tried putting some code in my openStack handler to set the stack's 
height to what I need it to be, but this doesn't seem to be firing. Or if it is, 
it's firing *before* the IDE performs it's "magic", so I always end up with a 
chopped off bottom. :-)

It's not the end of the world to have to resize it every time I open it, but 
it's a few seconds of wasted time that I could avoid.

Thanks,
Chris
