Is this an event?

Barry, if you're trying to do a drag and drop, you can use the within()
function, passing the loc of "alpha", along with object to check. Something

repeat with x = 1 to 30
  if within(button ("beta" & x),(the loc of btn "alpha")) then
    -- do your stuff
  end if
end repeat

Hope this helps,
