Revisiting Lock Screen

Oh, but it gets better. I put at the entry point of the script:

   lock screen
   put the lockscreen into tScreenIsLocked — I checked and this is true

Then at the exit point:

   put the lockscreen 

STILL TRUE in spite of the fact that I see everything that the app is doing to the screen the entire time. 

Also curious is that I get the same result whether or not I am in script debug mode or no!!!!!

Okay so I turn it off, put the command “Lock Screen” at the entry point to a selectionChanged handler which goes on to do a number of things that change the appearance of the screen. The screen is decidedly NOT LOCKED! The things I go on to do are things like changing the hilitedItems of a tab widget which in turn shows and hides a number of objects, and also changes the selection in a number of datagrids. Every action that alters the screen is visible after I issue the Lock Screen command.
