:-O x 100000000

Is it that simple?!!? :-O


I can code a whole web server in Rev but could not do it! :-D

Now, for your amusement, I will tell you what I was doing. I kept a "Stack"
(the datastructure not the file format) with all the long ids of the
controls in a group. If I needed to add one control to a group. I'd ungroup
them, then, assemble a string with all the long ids plus the new control and
group them again.

I knew it was supposed to be easier than that...

Thanks Jacque, you are a life saver, as always!
