I'm not sure how your example would work, since by clicking your button, 
you've changed the location of ClickLoc.

In anycase, if you put the following script into your field, it should do 
what you want:

on mouseup
  put the clickchunk into tClicked
  if tClicked is not empty then
    put the textStyle of tClicked into tStyle
    if tStyle is "link" then
      set the textStyle of tClicked to "plain"
      put the mousetext after fld "Display"
      set the textStyle of tClicked to "link"
      hide groups
    else
      put the clickText after fld "Display"
    end if
  end if
end mouseup

Regards,
