Sending mouseUp

I set the visible of a stack to false, and put this in the stack script:

on opencard
   send "set the visible of me to true" to me in 5 seconds
end opencard

I didn't try it in a standalone, but opening that in the dev environment
resulted in no visible change for 5 seconds, then the stack appeared. So
you could do something like this and run your code after the stack has
fully loaded (but is still not visible).
