How to Quit with a button

Ray and Jim:
Tnx for the suggestions. Tried both. I did lock messages prior to the quit statement. I couldn’t get the toolbar menu to fire on quit. The menu is “PT_Explorer” and the item I want is “Quit PT_Explorer”. So I did 
domenu “Quit PT_Explorer” of menu “PT_Explorer”

I got no response from the doMenu command, so perhaps I needed to include the shortcut key in the name? Anyway, I haven’t fully tried destroying all my substacks before trying to quit. The quit command does work in a bare stack with no other code, tho.

Tnx for the suggestions.

Bill
