Yeah, but I think it works for this stack.  I think you'd agree if you 
saw the stack.

So, you're suggesting to put this code in the preopenstack handler of 
some stack called "As Dialog"?
What/where is the stack "As Dialog" ?

what is an IDE stack?
What does it mean to restore one?

Is there an easier way to solve this problem without tinkering with 
external stacks?  Can i just make all the changes within my stack?
Thank you
