LoadAncestor Documentation?
Trying to locate the documentation for LoadAncestor and meaning of Root, Great Grandparent, and GrandParent.
Good question. I think it didn't get documented. But Parent is thing that contains the current container. So let's say button A is inside overlay B, which is inside overlay C, which is inside overlay D, which is in the base template (or a popup):

Parent - Button A can already load the overlay it's in (B), by just calling LoadTemplate. So there's no need for a special command for that. So Parent is C, the next one up
GrandParent - is the one above that, which is D
Root - Is either the base template or the popup in which the overlay ultimately lives. In this case Great Grandparent should also correspond to the same thing.

That's how it's supposed to work anyway.
