No probs, I learned something!

In fact, the solution we used was "don't do that in an event handler"
and just changed where the form was closed to, as you suggested, to the
messageView handlers. Personally, i don't particularly like the
MessageView approach but that is what the co-op wanted, so c'est la

"If at first you don't succeed , try it differently." is going up on
the wall beside the "RTFM then RTFM" sign.


p.s. Moving right along, we are having a group hack of the gb.report2
component this week. Should be fun!
