Ok, this is a bit complicated but here goes.
I have two layouts with event sheets, Login and Create Account. Attached to both of these is just an event sheet, Ajax Handler. If I try to change an element on either layout from Ajax handler, it has no problem. I can make text invisible or change it's colors, etc. HOWEVER, if, in the Ajax Handler I tell it to go to either of those layouts, the Ajax Handler is no longer able to affect the layout it switches to.
If I'm in the Create Account layout and in the Ajax Handler I tell it to play a fade on a Create Account layout, it works.
If I'm in the Login layout and tell the Ajax Handler to play a fade on a Login layout text, that works.
If I'm in the Create Account layout, tell it to switch to the Login layout and play a fade on the Login layout, it doesn't work.
