Easy peasy. Be prepared to force-quit, and don't have any other real
work open when you try this. Make a stack with 2 fields, and name them
"fldOne" and "fldTwo". Put this into the card script:
formatFld the short name of the target
on formatFld pFldName
set the numberformat to "0.0#####"
get fld pFldName
put (it + 0) into fld pFldName
update -- here's where you say goodbye for the session
-- other code here, but you never get past the first line
Then enter a number into the first field and hit the tab key or click
out of it.
I checked using Expose for error dialogs, etc. Nada. See if you can
Cmd-period out of it.
