Relayering a Grouped Control to the Top of Its Group
No control has its owner changed. All controls other than the one that moves keep their original sequence within their owners. No controls are copied or deleted, so no system messages like newGroup and deleteGroup get sent. There's no "start editing" command, so stepping through the handler doesn't cause unexpected results (see the dictionary entry for "start editing"). The previous value of the relayerGroupedControls is restored at the end.
The optional input parameter identifies the control to bring to the front. With no input the handler operates on the target.
The handler passed my tests. If you find a problem with it, please let me know.on bringToFrontWithinOwner pControl if pControl is empty then put abbr id of the target into tTarget else put abbr id of pControl into tTarget end if put long owner of tTarget into tOwner if word 1 of tOwner is "card" then put 1 into tLayer else put the layer of tOwner + 1 into tLayer end if repeat with i = number of controls down to 1 if long owner of control i is tOwner then if abbr id of control i is not tTarget then put abbr id of control i & cr after tPeers -- note: peers share the same owner end if end if end repeat lock screen put the relayerGroupedControls into tRelayerGroupedControls set the relayerGroupedControls to "true" repeat for each line tPeer in tPeers set the layer of tPeer to tLayer end repeat set the relayerGroupedControls to tRelayerGroupedControls unlock screen end bringToFrontWithinOwner
