This, plus the recursion error you got, likely indicates that your
scripts are going in circles without a way to complete. What does your
"mouseUp" handler do exactly? If it calls a different handler, which in
turn calls the mouseUp again, then your script will loop between the two
handlers until eventually you get the error, or it looks like you hung.
(Did you try command-period to stop the scripts?)
Usually it's better not to call system messages if possible. Instead of
sending a mouseup to a button, send a custom handler name instead. Then
have your mouseUp handler call that same custom handler. For example, if
you have this:
Instead, do this:
Now your looping reset script can send "doStuff" to each button instead
of sending "mouseUp" to it. In fact, all your handlers that need to do
the mouseUp button stuff should be sending "doStuff" instead.
