I don't know if this applies, but it might.

The long id of an object can be used where an object reference is expected.  It can be a way to reference the object in any context.  You can pass the value to functions.


on mouseUp
	put the long id of field "Field" into f
	doSomething f
end mouseUp

command doSomething lid
	set the text of f to "Start"
	set the startTime of f to the long seconds
	move f relative 10,0
end doSomething

As you can see, you have to 'set the text' rather than use 'put' to change the value in a field.
