Boiling over with excitement . . .

Before anyone gets over-excited by the fact that the LiveCode team have, 
finally,

sorted out the silly invisible polygon graphic object in LiveCode 
(a.k.a. Polly-Gone) in 9.0.1 rc 1:


*1.* I think it is extremely shabby that LiveCode 8 was EOLed without 
that being sorted out.

*2.* Choose a Polygon Graphic from the menu, get into its properties 
palette and give it

a unique name, set up a listField with a set of non-trivial points

(e.g. 100,100

          100,200

          200,200

          200,100

          100,100)


crack open the Message box and type something of this order:

*set the points of grc "zzz" to fld "scl"*

and your polygon graphic will  "magically" manifest itself 'right there' 
on the stack.


Richmond.
