I was fiddling around with those options quite a bit, but I've managed 
to get it working now...

It seems that using iOS 5.1 or 6.0 as the base SDK causes problems, 
however if I choose the 6.1 SDK it builds correctly in LiveCode.

On a related note, now that I have it compiled, I am trying to 
understand the layout that LiveCode uses on IOS...

Does it just uses a single UIView the size of the screen, or will it 
create multiple?

I can see from the examples that you can get the object reference for 
the main UIView inside the externals code.  However, if you create any 
native mobile controls through LiveCode, do you know if you can get the 
object reference to these?

That would be good.  I have only really started working with LiveCode, 
so it would be very helpful to catch up with others that have been using 
it...  I'm based in QLD.

Thanks for your help,
