Okay! I got it! "Dirty?" is reset whenever the field is reshown. that's enough of a clue for me to code my own persistent-dirty? flag-----I need that because the thingie I'm writing wants to know which fields have changed across several subpanels when the user presses the "update button". We may not talk "dirty?" often, but I think it was the late John Sladek who pointed out just how smutty most computer language is. He instanced bits, bytes and rams if I remember rightly. Here's a short poem written entirely from words found in Vid 1.2 system/words: View-face Open wrap Feel top Probe bottom Show-popup [I'll excise the second verse--which starts "bump"--on the grounds of good taste] Thanks again, --Colin.
