Trying to be all fashionable and find out information on how to implement these newfangled “External Methods” rather than the old “Declares”. To the Help Pages! Step 1, pull up the online docs. Wow, these have definitely been streamlined in recent releases, it looks like the old “developer.xojo.com” documentation has been effectively eliminated and replaced with the much more uniform “docs.xojo.com” (thanks Paul). Step 2, type “External Methods” into the search field (that is what they’re called), and hit return. Nothing. That’s weird. Scrolling through I can’t find reference to “External Methods” anywhere in the search results:
