SSDR V1.2 Multiple instances of FlexControl Settings panel

When the FlexControl settings panel is invoked it will create a new instance each time.  

It is easy to miss that you already have an instance running since it will be hidden behind the SSDR GUI if you change focus to the GUI.  (i..e click on SSDR screen)

In the snapshot below I created 3 instances and it appears I could continue creating them.  This is not a major problem but can be confusing.    If an instance is already running, attempting to invoke the settings panel should just change the focus to the running instance.

Tim, yes, its not a big deal but could be confusing.   (if that is the worst bug anyone finds then it will be great ;-)

Back when the DAX panel was doing the same thing it was a problem.
