1. You cannot use the "set" command on text.
Use: put "Blah" into line 1 of the text of field "Options"
Or shorter: put "Blah" into line 1 of field "Options"

2. A button has no text (or it is irrelevant) use "set the label of..." 
or "set the name of..."

3. the label and the name of a button always have only one line

You surely mixed a lot of things :)



hope it helped
