Sure, laugh it up at my expense.  I'll remember that the next time you post
a plea for help on the list...   :-)

That wasn't my only problem (I have several, but that's not the point).  I
was also "mixing" a LiveCode field and the iOS input field, which apparently
the engine doesn't like.  "Don't display unlocked fields with iOS input
controls."  I think it's all sorted out now.

Happy Friday
