Sure! The object residing in the variable righttopframe is still there. By
calling destroy you tell FOX to release WindowManager-resources etc. but not
to destroy the object at hand. This is not possible in Ruby, it is done by
the garbage collector automatically.

As Lyle pointed out earlier, righttopframe.parent.RemoveChild(righttopframe)
is the correct way to do what you attempted to do, even if there are better
ways to update content in a UI. After that, if you explicitly set the
variable righttopframe = nil then your if statement above also works.
