Declare vs External Methods

Ok, so I just discovered that Xojo has a thing called “External Methods” for API calls.

If that’s the case, what’s the advantage to using Declares instead?

External Methods are not supported on iOS. Use the Declare command instead.

They are essentially the same, a declare is hand written while an external method is more written in the IDE’s editor.

They should be both usable in ANY project, even iOS.

There is no actual advantage other than External Methods may look better in the IDE (they are better managable as it’s more like editng a template). Declares can be made the same trough methods.

Mmm Yes and no have a look at

A good day for a bug report. That’s clearly an outdated information. See the iOS 64 bit target button on external methods …
