Setting the hilite will not automatically send a mouseUp, however if
the radio buttons are grouped, you could use:
  click at the loc of button "radio3"
which will set all the hilites correctly and do the mouseUp.

A shorter way of setting all the hilites in a group is to say:
  set the hilitedButtonName of group "whatever" to "radio3"
but again, this will not trigger the mouseUp message.
