Thanks for that, Chay.  And welcome to the LiveCode list.

I'd come across that blog entry earlier when I was looking for 
information which might explain this Xojo move, but while it's a good 
discussion of why native controls are useful, it didn't explain what RB 
considers "native".

So just how "native" are RB's controls?  Do they also put in the effort
to provide a hybrid multi-platform solution for their scripters as
LiveCode does, or do they merely provide access to the native APIs and
expect everyone to write everything from scratch using the OS calls?
