At first I thought I really screwed up but now I think maybe this is a
good thing. I just did a build with both stacks in it instead of just
the one and I made the splash screen as main stack and I left in the
close splash screen code!!!! So I don't know if the ide was inserted in
both stacks but it did work so I may assume it did or maybe it didn't
really close the splash screen when it encountered my code to do so.
I can really see the benefit of keeping the other stacks as stacks and
not in the build since every build i do it seems there is something I
forgot to include etc. in DB - so having the stacks outside of the
build would be great for that.
Thanks you guys,
I appreciate it.
