Two questions

Hi Richard,

Two questions, two answers :-)

1) check the Transcript Dictionary entry for the
'closeStackRequest' message ; it is sent when the user
clicks the close box, but before the stack is actually
closed ; if you 'pass closeStackRequest', the stack
will be closed, otherwise it won't.

2) try this:
  on openCard
    select char 1 to -1 of fld "NN"
  end openCard
-- it will select the text of the field.

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
