Probably something like this would work.
put the buttonList of current card into tButtons
put the short name of last btn into tTargetButton
put lineoffset(tTargetButton,tButtons) into tOffset -- get the matching
line number in tButtons
if tOffset > 0 then -- if there was a match...
delete line tOffset of tButtons -- remove the button name from the list
delete button tTargetButton -- delete the butotn
answer tTargetButton & "Button has been deleted."
set the buttonlist of the current card to tButtons -- set the property
to the adjusted tbuttons
