The more we separate our code/libraries/behaviors from the binary UI, the more I find myself trying to dispatch call backs or other messages back to the group/card/stack that has a behavior and not the individual control: widget/button/field on the card itself, whose job was simply to intercept a mouse event and server as the target in higher switch. So you need to get the long ID
widget id 1104 of card id 1002 of stack "/Users/Brahmanathaswami/Documents/_Siva-Siva-App/modules/listen/listen.livecode"
# widget is "downloadSelection"
so it seems a bit "hacky" but all I can think of to send a callback to the behavior attached to the card and not the widget itself is:
put the long ID of the target into pRequestedBy
delete word 1 to 4 of pRequestedBy
dispatch "someCommand" to "someOtherStack with param1, param 2, sRequestedBy
# intent is, once load URL is done to close the download view dispatch update commands aback to the UI that initiated the Download: the stack "listen"
maybe hacky, but simple enough and well, this *is* supposed to be "English like coding"
but sometimes my code seems like "baby xTalk" is there a better way?
OTOH Baby xTalk is more fun than C++!
