AFAIR, DashBoard scripting is basically NewtonScript. If you want to learn
it, you would need a book on it. There are only a few. Those that I remember
were "Programming the Newton using Macintosh". There is a version available
in the Internet archive. Do a search in the NewtonTalk archive for
"programming newton" and you should find my message.

creationism n.: The (false) belief that large, innovative software designs can be completely specified in advance and then painlessly magicked out of the void by the normal efforts of a team of normally talented programmers. In fact, experience has shown repeatedly that good designs arise only from evolutionary, exploratory interaction between one (or at most a small handful of) exceptionally able designer(s) and an active user population -- and that the first try at a big new idea is always wrong. Unfortunately, because these truths don't fit the planning models beloved of management, they are generally ignored.
