Hi Mathias the answer is YES! There is a very fine lesson in the dictionary -
however it is best to use the dictionary from version LC 8.1.0(dp1) or later
as this version updates the sample code to current syntax.

To get the lesson:

1 - in LC 8.1.0(dp1) or later open the dictionary
2 - wait a few seconds without worrying as things load
3 - click the 'Guide' tab in the top-left
4 - wait a few seconds more without worrying as things load
5 - find the dropdown control close to the top-left and click it
6 - select "Extending LiveCode" from the list
7 - follow the instructions to create your version of 'the pink circle'

If you're like me you'll need a fair bit of protected time to do this as you
read background documents, tinker with settings, try new functions etc - but
the example works nicely and opens up a whole new vista of LiveCode

Kind regards
