I'm wondering what is the "recommended" way of handling a lot of dialog
boxes in applications. There are a couple of way of handling this that
I've thought of but I don't know what would be considered "best:"
1) A separate stack for each dialog.
Pros: Sizing, function (information only, getting user input, etc)
can be implemented without worrying about it's effect
on other dialogs.
Cons: You need the basic "stack overhead" repeated over and over for
2) One dialog stack with multiple cards (one for each dialog).
Pros: Single stack overhead (smaller file size)
Cons: Every time a dialog is opened, the correct card has to be
selected and then the stack has to be resized for that particular
3) Some other approach.
Any advice? I know I could use either one and make it work but I looking
for "best practice" advice.
