Thanks for the reply Zryip!

I can't get dgDataControlOfIndex to work, anyone know of any code examples?


hide btn "blueCircle" of dgDataControlOfIndex[2]

and

hide btn "blueCircle" of grp dgDataControlOfIndex[2]

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!
