Just add a closure as a handler:

 ok.onClick.add( function() app:exit() end )

And if you need to bind any parameters you just put them in your

 ok.onClick.add( function() local s=0 app:exit(s) end )

Or, instead of adding a function handler couldn?t you replace the
default onClick function?

 ok.onClick = function() exit() end


 ok.onClick = function() app:exit() end
