This is the part that I don't think I understand. Why do you need to turn
the long id of the parent into a small array and dispatch to to any object
along the path? From the search custom control I would just do the

dispatch "behaviorSearchAndFilter"

This sends the message down the normal message path starting at the object
containing the script. You can then handle the message farther down in a
group, card, or stack script. What is it you are trying to accomplish with
the parent of the search custom control?
