there it is, makes total sense.. I have some major dialogs in my generic 
shell, most important being the print control.. that's how you do the 
context-driven navigation..

if field A = "this" then SELECTCONTROL "mybutton" else SELECTCONTROL 
"yourbutton" endif

Rather than responding individually, thanks all.

While writing this I stumbled on the answer ..

SELECTCONTROL <<Tag>> Navigates within the dialog (available only within a 


CONTROLVALUE(<<Tag>>[,<<Label>>]) determines the value of any control

element within a dialog box


RESYNCCONTROL <<Tag>> resynchronizes the specified control within a dialog 

there may be others, but it now makes sense.

Dialog boxes look like being a whole new adventure.
