Modal Issue

Hi Andrew,

That's how modal dialogs work. You will have to find a different way  
to do this. For example a modal dialog stack that shows itself until  
either 10 seconds have passed or the user clicks on a Buy button. Once  
the user clicks on Buy, you can close the modal dialog and show a  
different window together with the calendar.

It is also possible to show a modal dialog on top of another modal  
dialog. If you add a Calendar button to your payment stack to open the  
calendar as a modal dialog, you could allow the user to select a date  
and show the date in the Payment stack after the Calendar stack closes.

Best regards,
