Sivakatirswami, et al:
I have done some testing in the current Rev environment (set the
height/width of image id xxxx to the height/width of button
"whatever"), and it is not a problem that can't be dealt with.
When I opened another substack with the same icon in a different
sized button, it appeared correctly in both windows...until I closed
the second stack or otherwise brought the first stack to the top.
Easy fix: I moved the "set the height..." etc. statements from
preopenStack into a resumeStack handler, and called resumeStack in
preopenStack. It works fine, but Revolution could save a lot of
developers' time and scripting by making icon scaling a button
One thing I have not tested is modal dialogs. Since resumeStack is
not sent when the dialog closes, I presume one would have to call
resumeStack after each "modal" statement where icon size conflict is
