Subject: st: dialog programming question

I'm working on a project where I need to create a dialog box for the end
user.  I want the user to be able to permanently store and retrieve all of
the settings in the dialog box.  I've found a way to do this by keeping the
settings information in a Stata dataset and creating buttons that activate
programs in the dialog file for retrieving old settings and saving new
settings through global macros.

The problem I'm having is that when settings are retrieved, the values in
the dialog box don't change unless the user clicks the reset button in the
bottom left corner.  I'd like to know if there is a way to automatically
initiate a reset from within a script or program so that the default values
update themselves.  The reset button does get a name (usually res1) so I'm
wondering if there is some type of member function to initiate a reset.
