As you said, the modal editor can be opened from different stacks, so the most logical place would be to call the 'refresh' code right after the 'modal' command that opens your editor stack - when the modal dialog is closed, the original script will resume after the 'modal' command.

If you want to update all the open 'Persons' datagrids throughout your applmication, you'll have to find some way to register the datagrids and dispatch a refresh to all of their 'caretakers'.
