Card Script Not Firing

Hi Len,

If your stack is open yet, openStack or openCard have been already  
sent and a simple navigation or changing stack's visible property  
*does not* open the stack or the card.
Probably you could write an <update handler> in the script of your  
dialog and use:

send "UpdateFromDB" to stack "IMS Configuration"
go stack "IMS Configuration"
