    Good morning.

    Tried to upload an app to TestFlight earlier and got an error message from Application Loader about Missing bundle display name.
    Found this: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/56807112/xcode-error-itms-90783-missing-bundle-display-name

    Basically, add this:

    <key>CFBundleDisplayName</key>
    <string>$(PRODUCT_NAME)</string>

    to your info,.plist file and all will be well.

    Apparently this is a recent change.

    Is the problem fixed on your end Bob? I mean did you find a workaround?

    If not, you will need to add an info.plist file in your iOS project and add a string entry with CFBundleDisplayName -> Name of your app.

    Would you mind opening a Xojo bug report, so we can hope this is fixed in next Xojo release.

    How long is your app name?

    Greg,

    The app name six letters.

    The point was that last week this was not a problem. Apparently Apple changed something as that was what was suggested in the stackoverflow post.

    Right. But I looked at their docs and the plist entry you pointed out is only needed if your app name exceeds 15 characters... according to their docs :P

    Just makes me wonder if you got an over zealous reviewer.
