IDK BrightScript object support

I noticed the sample apps have have main.brs file.  How many of the old API functions work in this space?

Re: IDK BrightScript object support

IDK is initiated by a roku component in a standard main.brs file.  You can use any Roku API functions in this space.  Once you have started an IDK instance, you no longer have access to brightscript/Scenegraph.  You can however pass variables to the IDK instance. You may also be able to run brightscript on IDK instance exit but I have not attempted doing that yet.
