I agree with Craig that you're better off making your own. There is a built-in mechanism for this: the dialogData. It's a generic global property, always available, specifically for moving data between a modal stack and your scripts. You don't need to declare it as a global, it's always there.

You're probably using an option button in that case. LC calls on the OS to draw those, which produces a standard system appearance. You can't change it. On Mac the drop-down is to the side, on Windows it's underneath. -- Jacqueline Landman Gay | jac...@hyperactivesw.com HyperActive Software |

Not quite. Prerendered means that you have already added glow and shine to the icons. If you want Apple to render the icon according to the style of the phone's current OS, leave prerendered unchecked and Apple will draw the shine effect for you. IPhones don't use .icns files. -- Jacqueline
