    Hi - I'm trying to do this (following another thread to create UUIDs) :

    Dim no As NativeObject
    Return no.Initialize("NSUUID").RunMethod("UUID", Null).RunMethod("UUIDString", Null).AsString

    but it complains that there is no NativeObject type. Should there be in B4j? I've tried adding all of the libraries in the manager but it doesn't seem to exist.

    Try using a JavaObject (LIbrary JavaObject)

    #Example Sub to retrieve a type 4 (pseudo randomly generated) UUID.
    Sub UUID As String
    Dim joUUID As JavaObject
    Return joUUID.InitializeStatic("java.util.UUID").RunMethod("randomUUID"Null)
    End Sub
    Log("UUID: " & UUID)
    UUID: 59ec389c-6ba2-46fb-bd6b-e33b5a24ce74
    ricardotm1968 and Erel like this.
