SuperCard 4.8 Locked File Warnings

Postby codegreen » Fri Apr 01, 2016 12:30 pm

By default SuperCard attempts to open project files with exclusive read/write file system access. If this fails (which it can for several reasons) SuperCard falls back to opening the file with read-only permission.

Starting in SuperCard 4.8 a warning message ('File is open read-only.') is put into the result when SuperCard opens a project with read-only privileges, or when you attempt to save a file opened this way.

In previous releases there was no warning when opening a file read-only, and under such circumstances saving would just silently fail…
