The Wait command

This works for what I understand the original scenario was.  If you 
click button 1, it waits either until the 10 seconds has elapsed or 
until button 2 is pressed.


Add 2 buttons to a new stack;

1st button script;
on mouseUp
    set the uFlag of this card to false
    put the millisecs + 10000 into tTime
    repeat until the millisecs > tTime or the uFlag of this card = true
       wait for 100 millisecs with messages
    end repeat
    answer "OK"
end mouseUp

2nd button script;
on mouseUp
    set the uFlag of this card to true
end mouseUp

If the condition is triggered by some kind of execution the even will never happen because you are waiting. I know we hammered this to death in another thread, but this would be I think one of the main reasons why it would be beneficial.
