Then PLEASE could someone just tell me how I save a Standalone Stack
PLEASE!!! I've been asking questions about this all day and I'm just
going round and round and round in circles.
All I want to do is to save the settings of any controls if and only
if the User Presses ok. I would like this to work as a Standalone and
under the RunRev IDE, but would be happy if it just worked as a
Standalone at this stage.
Maybe RunRev isn't the right tool for this after all, I mean if it's
this hard just to save the contents of a Checkbox!
Why doesn't the documentation say anything about this?
Yours an experated RunRev Newbie!
