Sample stack demonstrating how to obtain all properties and customproperties of a stack?

Thanks to everyone for your input...

Richard: I have a pretty large stack with lots of graphics and controls... I 
could just save the stack to save the settings, but each stack would be 
quite large in size. Also, if I need to upgrade the software, all of the 
saved stacks would need to be updated accordingly.

I have decided to create a separate stack to transfer the custom properties 
back and forth from, saving each of these stacks as a "data stack" so to 
speak. The data stack will only contain the custom settings and no actual 
controls... Seems to be working good. (I presume this is the way to go?)

Thanks again,

- Boo

That's been my experience as well.  The stack file format is so compact
and convenient that it's hard to beat for most project management tasks.

Keith, what is the problem you were looking to solve?
