Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the modeless command to display a stack as a custom modeless dialog box.

Parameters:

The stack is any stack reference.

Comments:

A modeless dialog box behaves like an ordinary window, except that it cannot be edited. Use modeless dialog boxes to ask the user for information.

To edit a modeless dialog box, use the topLevel command to display it in an editable window.

The modeless command closes the stack and reopens it as a modeless dialog box, so closeStack and openStack, closeCard and openCard, and (if applicable) closeBackground and openBackground messages are sent to the current card as a result of executing this command. Use the lock messages command before executing modeless if you want to prevent the close messages from being sent; the open messages are sent regardless of the setting of the lockMessages property.

If the stack is already displayed as a modeless dialog box, the modeless command does not close and reopen it.

The Browse tool is used in modeless dialog boxes, regardless of the current setting of the tool property.
