building a control -- Well trying anyway

Hmmm, it might be time for upgrade my xCode and LC.
I have tried waiting all the way up to 5000 Milliseconds with messages but to an avail, still getting random numbers reported.

FYI xCode 4.5.1 and LC 5.5.3

The factor is the error it returns seems to vary with which Simulator I use.

Hi,

I have the same problem on Android. The animated movement of the
keyboard takes almost 500 milliseconds. If I wait 500 milliseconds with
messages before continuing the script, it works fine. 500 seems long,
but give it a try.
