Hi Nicolas,

I agree Jacque's answer except on one point :-)
I would prefer something like the following where the whole code is  
in the card's script and then easy to maintain:

on mouseUp
     if "image" is in the target then
     switch the short name of the target
     case "Img1"
       -- do some stuff
     case "Img2"
       -- do another stuff
       -- etc
     end switch
   end if
   put flushEvents("mouseUp") into temp
end mouseUp

The last line in the handler prevents any mouseUp being triggered  
while another mouseUp is running.

Best Regards from Paris,

Eric Chatonet.
