 Toggle MDI/non-MDI before opening a window?

Hi folks,

why on earth is {prop:mdi} read-only? What I need to do is set
MDI/non-MDI mode before opening a browse-window; since it is an
attribute like any other I see no logical objections as long as it is
done before OPEN.

Is there any trick to achieve that?

Of course, I could run copies of the same procedure. But the contained
browses are completely the same except pointing to different files with
the same structure, so that was rather stupid with maintenance in mind.
For special reasons I can not open both windows in the same appframe.

Help is appreciated :)=)

A better way to accomplish what you're trying to do might be to
disable the menu items by playing with the threads so both browse
procedures cannot be opened at the same time.  It also keeps your app
looking more consistent from the user's standpoint.
