This is a cross platform problem (well, Mac, Windows and Linux).

In a stack one can trap keyDowns from the numeric keys that run along 
the top of a standard keyboard
like this:

on rawKeyDown RK
    if RK = 49 then
      send "mouseUp" to button "DO_SOME_SCRIPT"
    end if
end rawKeyDown

[ 49 is the keycode for '1' ]

and the code in button "DO_SOME_SCRIPT" will be executed.

In standalones it will NOT;

end users will get nothing, or a '1' in their textField.
