I am in the process of generalizing a few code modules that I intend to use in a number of different Mac/Windows applications (version numbering, software updater, etc). As far as I can tell, there’s no easy built-in way to get at the application name (i.e. to display in a simple “About” dialog), so I was hoping to use the “Description” field in the Shared Build Settings to store the same information. Unfortunately App.Description doesn’t return anything. It seems like everything else Is working as expected (App.Copyright, App.Version, etc.), but Description always returns a null string irregardless of what I put in there.
I can use MBS methods to get the running app name, and I’ll end up doing this for the time being, but this smells like a bug to me (2019r1.1). Am I wrong?
