Dialog Edit Text Problem

I have created a Dialog Box with Edit text items (ID 4,5,6,7) When any item is entered I validate the reply to be within certain criteria. If the reply is outside my criteria I raise an Alert Box to re-enter the data. However when returning to the dialog box the first character of the Static text field (item 3) has been corrupted . Why?

Is your alert box has the same id as your dialog box ?

This is usually the type of problem that happens when not setting ports. Would you like to post a snippet of your code?

Thanks roov .
Your reply to my other Dialog problem caused me to abandon my current code which was an attempt to simulate IsDigit.
I was obviously trampling all over the dailog text areas so this problem has gone away.
