Use roAppInfo data inside render thread

Hi

I know this is naive question. But i am trying to figure out how do i get/ use roAppInfo methods like getTitle and getID. etc.. inside render thread. 
Since roAppinfo can only be used inside task node, I wanted to know how to use these methods/get the data  in render thread..

Thanks in advance

Re: Use roAppInfo data inside render thread

roAppInfo can be used in the render thread. The documentation that says it can only be used in a Task is incorrect (or rather obsolete if you will). That restriction applied only to an early 7.x version of Roku OS.

Hi

Thanks for the clarification. 
So , you are saying this documentation here https://developer.roku.com/docs/developer-program/core-concepts/scenegraph-brightscript/brightscript....applies only to versions before 8.x?
