I wrote the docs, so I guess I can fix them.  The issue is that for widgets that is how the syntax for handlers is displayed.  What can be done is to add an example that shows it as a command without the parentheses. Thanks, Brian On Apr 16, 2020, 4:41 PM -0400, J. Landman Gay via use-livecode

Just a quick ‘Thank You’ to Andrew, Devin and Bill for their ultra-rapid and detailed replies. There is a lot to take in there, and I’ll respond later if I have to ask yet more questions. It does seem a bit of a dog’s breakfast (if I can say that), doesn’t it? I did not realise you could buy in

Hi Graham, TL/DR: It’s doable, but there is a learning curve. Making your apps look native is doable, but how to get there is a mixed bag. As you’ve discovered, you have to use a range of capabilities. 1. Widgets. They are mostly straightforward to figure out. See my lesson at

Graham, I feel your pain! Weren’t there some app building lessons that took you through the process of building a number of commonly included ios apps? I did a couple of them a few years ago. They were kind of quirky to follow, and not using the latest stuff, but perhaps they could inform you
