    Tracker1 and I recently went over this. The bbs.curgrp and bbs.cursub properties are 0-based, and are relative to the groups/subs the current user has access to.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "it doesn't save". If you set the variable to a value, and then read it back, you don't get the value you wrote?

    I think that it doesn't restrict the groups/subs appropriate to the user's security.. it seems to show them all when you enumerate the arrays.

    maybe if there was a setSub(SUB_CODE) command that set to the first group/
    sub that matched (presuming no dupe sub_code's) .. and returned true on success, false on fail ... or setSub(grp_number,sub_code) ...

    Please post example code that proves this. I've tested it myself and it works correctly.

    maybe if there was a setSub(SUB_CODE) command that set to the first group/ sub that matched (presuming no dupe sub_code's) .. and returned true on success, false on fail ... or setSub(grp_number,sub_code) ...

    There was a bug in one of your JS modules (I forget which) where it was trying to set the cursub/curgrp property as a string (instead of a Number). This is probably the root cause of whatever problem you're having.
