I have a mainstack that serves as the main view of my database and I edit the database by hiding and showing modal substacks. When I hide the substack I am able to use the command.
hide stack "EditWindowSubstack"
go to card 1 of stack "mainstack"
However when I open a modal substack as a secondary view of the database say "secondViewSubstack" and then open the same "EditWindowSubstack" as an edit tool on top ot it when it closes it wont alow me to use the
go to card 1 of stack "secondViewSubstack" OR
send a mouseup command to the "secondViewSubstack"
I am not closing the "EditWindowSubstack" I am just hiding it and I can't use the set defaultstack because to ends up in an endless loop asking me if I want to purge the old one before opening the new one. I tried using the lockmessages command still no good. Any ideas ? I just want to run a handler to refresh the screen once I edit the database. I have to physicaly click on the screen to activate a send mouseup message of a go to message on that open substack once I close the other one.
