The getApp() method is defined on the FXId class, which is way up in  
the class hierarchy and is an ancestor class for FXWindow and many  
other FXRuby classes. But you obviously need to have your hands on an  
instance of FXId or one of its subclasses to be able to call that  

A more general option (and what I suspect you'll need to use) is to  
just call the FXApp.instance method, which returns the (single) FXApp  
instance, e.g.
