Hi R,

If you're running on Windows or Motif lookAndFeel,
that should work ; however, MacOS doesn't support
focusing on a button control.
So the workaround there is to trap the 'returnKey'
message in your card script :
--
on returnKey
  set the hilite of btn "Foobar" to true
  wait 35 milliseconds
  send "mouseUp" to btn "Foobar"
  set the hilite of btn "Foobar" to false
end returnKey
--

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
