Somehow my testing managed to wreck the command, because when I reloaded LC 8.1.4 rc2, it worked, when neither my original call nor the Google one worked at all before. This is a bug in the IDE perhaps, since a bit of script testing should not affect what the Message Box can do. If I can track it down, I’ll report it.
Anyway I have learned quite a lot in a short time!
PS Perhaps the earlier testing when I failed to authenticate might have upset things. I had restarted LC lots of times during these tests, but I had always let the script run on to that point before trying stuff in the Message Box.
