In testing with a new stack, I see that what I am asking for actually does
happen. The various placements of the group do have the same ID and
configuration. So, I’ll work with my stack to make it happen that way.
Thanks all for your help!

My suggestion was just to see what properties are available in the widget. But when I just
tried it, I see that it doesn't respond in the IDE, what you see is just a placeholder. You can
search for "ios native button" in the dictionary, where I see only two available properties:
Is the group getting a new object ID? With the place command it should not and
you only really have one group. It will appear on each card that it is placed
on. You do not need to select background behavior, you just need to make the

Thanks for the other info about properties - how would you then refer to a
property that isn’t shown in the Property Inspector for a widget, such as
fontColor (or whatever)? I assume the array is just a
On the contrary, I want each instance of the group to be exactly the same. I’m
not seeing that when I place a group—it now seems to be a new object.

If you have a stack with one card, create a group, and set the
backGroundBehavior of the group, then any new card you create will
automatically contain a copy of the group.
If you already have a stack with multiple cards, and create a group somewhere,
then if you want to copy it to other

“...comes after the
You can certainly create a group and set its backgroundbehjavior, then "place"
it on any or all existing cards. This assumes that the group comes after the
multi-card stack. Then any changes to the physical structure of your group will
appear in all instances.
But I am not sure how you

Using the graphic is a much better choice than a roundRect button,
because the button uses an older

I have a stack with multiple cards (not part of a background) and I want to
place a group on each card—the same group--AND be able to edit a single group
script. And ideally, I would be able to configure as needed the controls of
all instances of the group from a single location.
I came here to recommend "script tracker" as a powerful tool for those
storing stacks in vcs. In the end it all depends on how your workflow is
going to happen. Are you going to do merges? If that is the case then you
need to plan ahead and carefully since you can't merge binary stacks.
Have you tried to add a background color to the control so you can actually see
it? Then the dictionary actually tells you that the result holds the ID. I know
that you can then use them both. I usually use the ID as that is guaranteed to

Just to keep you in the loop, I have been trying to produce a mobile app (right
now it’s iPhone — Android may come later). I’m trying to do this as rapidly as
possible (it is connected in a minor way to the lockdown measures for the
pandemic). I have lots of experience of LiveCode
