Hi Charles,

According to the Scripter's Scrapbook:

"A useful tip for displaying a modal that will not block, for example, a
progress indicator.

The secret to having a modal dialog that you can update is this:

 go invisible stack "MyModal" as modal
 set visible of me to true

By opening the stack as invisible your scripts won't halt but you will
display a modal dialog."

I have an app that I am working on that takes a few seconds to clear fields,
reset radio buttons and checkboxes before it goes to the second card. During
this time, the screen is locked. I wanted to show a progress bar during this
process is going on. Is there anyway to show a progress bar while the screen
is locked? Is there a way to fake a progress bar while the screen is locked?
