He was talking about moving gauges - Ident numbers have nothing to do with that. So I assumed he meant general numbering. But you have a good point.
Ident numbers only need to be unique within a given panel. Keep in mind that certain gauges (i.e. icons) use the Ident number to load or unload subpanels, so changing these willy nilly is usually not a good idea.
Yes, I was asking about the numbers in the window section of a panel cfg!
If I wanted to make a pop-up window I was caught out by the strangeness of the numbers in the ident section....I could never work out how those numbers were chosen, or how they were necessary, and why any old number that I might use never worked !!
Now I think I understand from what Tom wrote, that those numbers are coded in the gauge as identification of that gauge.
