No, not in a loop! The send command I used *is* the equivalent to the
loop--it schedules the next change in which object is hilited. For
detecting the mouse action, no loop is needed as others have pointed
In the card or stack script. I included two handlers, one "dohilite"
which would cycle the hilited object and one "mousedown" to select
the currently hilited object. I was in a hurry so just put "end"
instead of "end dohilite". Of course, you have to send one "dohilite"
sometime to start it off, either when opening the card or through
some other method.
