*Preface* Not sure if this is an Alloy bug or we should not prefix property names with "on" in the Titanium SDK. *Description* Titanium SDK 3.3.0 introduces a new property for iOS that changes the color of the button when it is switched on: http://docs.appcelerator.com/titanium/latest/#!/api/Titanium.UI.Switch-property-onTintColor When using this property in Alloy XML markup, Alloy thinks it's an event. Property works fine in TSS or Controller code. *REPRODUCTION and RESULTS* The code below fails in the simulator with this error: {noformat} [ERROR] : Script Error { [ERROR] : backtrace = "#0 () at file:///Users/bhatfield/Library/Application%20Support/iPhone%20Simulator/7.0.3/Applications/4D9D3D70-9C78-4444-8A90-3C0277E07381/TestNewApis.app/alloy.js:232"; [ERROR] : line = 34; [ERROR] : message = "Can't find variable: green"; [ERROR] : name = ReferenceError; [ERROR] : sourceId = 268417408; [ERROR] : sourceURL = "file:///Users/bhatfield/Library/Application%20Support/iPhone%20Simulator/7.0.3/Applications/4D9D3D70-9C78-4444-8A90-3C0277E07381/TestNewApis.app/alloy/controllers/index.js"; [ERROR] : } {noformat} *Test Case:* {noformat} {noformat}

    Alloy assumes any XML attribute beginning with "on" are denoting event listeners. I added on manual workaround for an Android menu property that wasn't a listener. Looks like we'll have to make that more generic now that there are additional properties named with "on" that aren't used to signify event listeners.
