Hi Len,

If you stack is hidden, it is open already, so openCard and openStack  
won't work. You might use the resumeStack message:

on resumeStack
end resumeStack

on openCard
end openCard

on doMyOpenCardScript
   -- the script you would otherwise have in
   -- the openCard handler
end doMyOpenCardScript
