Hi Eric,

I just played with this with ClickClock.  A handler would "put empty" 
under certain conditions, and was opening the message box on 
openStack.  I tried 'if the visible of window "Message Box"' without 
success.  The way I got it to work was based on the fact that a 
specific message had to be in the Message Box if I needed to clear it:

     if there is a window "Message Box" then
       if message is "Designate the minute by clicking on it." then put empty
     end if

I haven't a clue why 'if the visible of window "Message Box"' 
wouldn't work.  If I remember corectly, "if message is not empty" 
didn't work either.
