Marco:  Everybody's probably about ready to lynch me for belaboring this so
much ... but you might put a text header with your name and address in the text

Some comments:

% I built a UserObject with an XY Trace object and an OK button and put
   then on the Panel View for the User Object.  I wired the Sequence out
   pin of the UserObject to its Auto Scale input pin, and to the OK button.
   I configured the UserObject to "Show Panel On Execute".

   When I fired a cosine wave into this UserObject from a Function Generator,
   the panel popped up and displayed the cosine wave until I clicked on the
   OK button to make it go away.

% Next, I put the UserObject inside another UserObject and tried the same
   experiment.  It worked OK.

   Is there some simple example you can show us to give some idea of what
   you are doing?

% Also, could you clarify your intent a little?  Are you trying to simply
   build one UserObject and clone it several times?

> Any sudgestions?  Thank you in advance!  Marco.

Please stay in touch.
