the stacksInUse

The stacksInUse property returns a return-separated list of stacks that have been inserted into the message-passing path via the start using command. Each stack appears in the order it will receive messages. The stacksInUse contains the full path names of the stacks being used.

HyperCard can use up to 16 stacks.

Note: You can’t compact a stack that’s being used.
