Charles, I'm not following this script well enough to understand the goal. Can you explain it?

I'm getting out of the script that you want to extend the period for a double-click to fifteen seconds -- a mouseUp and a subsequent mouseDown within  that time generates a beep and a field message. The message remains until a subsequent mouseUp.

Is that right?

regards,

Geoff
