I have to go on each card of a substack "Stack I'm Working On" to 
make a lot of work and updates.
During this operation, I'd like to have a window above the "stack I'm 
working on" with a progression bar showing the progression of the 
repeat with x = 1 to the number of cds
  the startValue of the progression bar (scrollbar "myscroll") is 1
  the endvalue of the progression bar (scrollbar "myscroll") is the 
number of cds

during the loop, I must have something like :

set the thumbposition of scrollbar "myscroll" of stack "MyThumb" to x

But I cannot perform it. I thinck it is because I need a lock screen, 
lock messagesŠ to
1) accelerate the work
2) avoid the user seeing the different cds on the screen
I think that's therefor my thumb doesn't move ?

What or how ???

I could do it in HC with externals.
I'd like to implement something like that in my stacks.
