Datagrids and Nested Behaviors

Okay my workaround is to have a custom property with the name of all the datagrids on a card in a custom property. Then in the openStack handler of the card I have:


In the same script I have:

on setMainCardBehaviors
   put the long id of me into tParentCard
   put the gridnames of this card into tGridList
   repeat for each item tGridName in tGridList
      if not there is a group tGridName of tParentCard then next repeat
      put the long id of group tGridName of tParentCard into tGridID
      set the behavior of the behavior of the behavior of tGridID \
            to the long id of button "maingrids" of card "Behaviors" of this stack
   end repeat
end setMainCardBehaviors

Essentially I have to set the custom behavior of every grid on a card the first time I open it. I think this is a bug, but it may be the intended behavior. Only the LC overseers can answer that.
