-- if you're trying to open the same file (for example, double-
-- clicking the file), bring the already-open stack to the front:
if the effective filename of stack theStack is thePath

end reloadStack

Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Handle the reloadStack message when you want to prevent a stack from being reopened, or moderate conflicts between the names of main stacks, or prevent two main stacks with the same name from being open at one time.

Parameters:

The stackName is the short name that belongs to the two conflicting main stacks.

The fileName is the full path to the file that is opening--the file that contains the second main stack with the same name.

Comments:

The opening of the stack is triggered by the reloadStack message. This means that trapping the reloadStack message and not passing it prevents the second stack from being opened.

If a main stack's destroyStack property is set to false, the stack remains in memory--and can cause a reloadStack message to be sent--even after its window is closed.
