This file has to be a file that NodeRun can actually launch (like a .js file or an .html file). It cannot be a Rich Display .json file, for example. So, the following is bad:

Thank you -> that worked! :blush:

I made the rest of the screen changes and received a new error, I’ll upload my compares to

I do not see any differences, might the issue be on the screen specifications?

JavaScript is case-sensitive. I think in your space, on line 14, you spelled while using a capital W.

Bullseye! Thanks Alex, what a great App!
