Len and Robert:
Another solution is to designate one card in your stack as the dialog
card, title it "Information," and place a field, a Cancel button, and
an OK button on it. Then place the dialog information into the field
by script as shown below. This method is very flexible and conserving
on linkClicked -- linked text in this particular case
put 2 into theOK
put "--------------------" into field "Info" of card "Information"
go card "Information"
wait while theOK = 2 with messages
if theOK = 1 then go recent card -- occurs when the user clicks on
the OK button on card "Information"
In the OK button on card "Information" include the handler:
put 1 into theOK
