Returns OK or error.


Add swipe gesture recognizers.
Please make sure a layout is visible as we attach to the front layout. You may do a short pause after showing the layout for FileMaker to actually display it, before calling this function.
This may replace a recognizer from FileMaker itself and it may prevent scrolling if we consume the gesture before FileMaker.


Install a recognizer:

# Let FileMaker make the layout visible
Pause/Resume Script [ Duration (seconds): 0.1 ]
# and add our recognizers
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS( "iOSApp.AddSwipeGestureRecognizer"; "Right, Down, Up, Left"; Get(FileName); "Recognizer") ]
