Thanks for the reply Zryip!
I can't get dgDataControlOfIndex to work, anyone know of any code examples?
hide btn "blueCircle" of dgDataControlOfIndex
hide btn "blueCircle" of grp dgDataControlOfIndex
both result in errors, so I'm going to hack a solution based on the long id of the graphic with cached controls on. Thanks for trying though!
