Cool Cat Server
LiveCode 6.5 brings an exciting development for Server: graphics support. This article shows you how to use it.

In this article, we're going to go over some new functionality that is going to be arriving in LiveCode Server with 6.5.0. Namely, that you will be able to use the graphics handling capability of the desktop IDE in the server environment. Please note that this functionality is currently in developer preview - it is available, here, but should be considered to be experimental until the full release of 6.5.0. The version I am using for this demonstration is 6.5.0 dp2. How does this work? Basically, stacks, cards, and their objects are rendered by the engine and can be manipulated via script as we would on the desktop IDE.
