A little cheat:

on mouseUp
   set the hilite of the target to true
   get the hilitedbutton of me
   set the hilite of the target to false
end mouseUp

Put it into the group script. If your buttons are radio buttons (i.e., 
they don't change hilite) then all you need to do is get the hilitedbutton.
