Background color in an 'answer' dialog?

Graham,

I think what is happening is that when you run in the IDE the parent stack of the answer dialog stack is the LiveCode engine, which sets a platform-appropriate background color (or no background color) for all child stacks. When you include it in a standalone, your stack-made-standalone becomes the parent stack, and whatever background color is set for that stack is inherited by the answer dialog stack. At least I have seen this happen with standalones that have a stack color set, and I’m fairly certain this is what you’re seeing. What happens if you change your main stack’s background color then rebuild the standalone?

Craig, you make an excellent point. We now know there is a stack named “answer dialog” and that it has properties you can set. Surely the documentation should explain this somewhere?

By the way, when I said my red background had disappeared, it hadn’t. It’s just that when you I through the script in the IDE, the background comes up white, whereas in the standalone (both platforms), it comes up red. A bug, surely? I will see if I can boil it down far enough to report it.

As a follow-up, is there anywhere a list of all IDE stacks? For example, the
stack named "answer dialog", though perfectly logical, is not listed
anywhere, and the names of some stacks, like the script editor, have changed
over the several LC versions.

It is a great way to get oneself in real trouble, but also useful if one
wants red answer dialog boxes.
