I just saw your execution error image, I haven't seen an empty dialog before. Did you include a prompt? I'll try a test tomorrow. -- Jacqueline Landman Gay | jac...@hyperactivesw.com HyperActive Software | http://www.hyperactivesw.com On November 11, 2020 12:55:22 AM "J. Landman Gay via

Sorry, I meant execution errors. You're supposed to read my mind. I keep telling my husband that but he doesn't always get it either. ;) I've used the built-in error reporting mechanism in the past and it worked well; I usually choose the email option and it works on both deaktop and mobile.

I vaguely remember long time, many moons, this came up. The upshot of the conversation is that because the message box is a stack file in it’s own right, certain features would only work this way, or it would interfere with other things if it didn’t work this way. I dunno, it was all all so

"Send in time". Hmmm So the line "put start" is actually delayed until after the wait command, er, starts, and gets stuck there? And if one uses "wait with messages" that stuck command can worm its way out and back into play? So then LC knows when the message box is about to be the target,
