Using polygon as line and childControlNames

Tried this and as you suggested it worked on 7.0.1.

I had changed my stack to use the childControlIDs but with your experiment below working changed it back to using childControlNames and it now works, don’t know why but it does. The gremlins strike again.

I think using childControlIDs is the safer solution so I will stick with that.

Thanks for your help

Terry
