Problems with Flashers

[ No, before you ask, not THAT kind . . . :) ]
I have a palette that has to be emptied as it is opened,
so I have this in the script of the button that opens
set the lockscreen to true
open stack "XYZ"
put empty into fld "FEELD" of stack "XYZ"
set the lockscreen to false
I had hoped that until the lockscreen was set to false
end-users would see nothing; but, 'tis not so -
there is a disconcerting flash just after clicking on the button
where the stack, with the fld's previous contents are
visible for a split-second.
Of course I could empty the field prior to closing it
so that it is sitting empty for the next time it is
opened (and that is what I shall do - no time like the
present), but that is not the point.
