Hi Scott and Peter,

thank you so much for developing my 
understanding of front scripts.
I feel some what embarrassed as it finally 
turned out that there still was a hidden 
button containing the script. 
So thank you Scott for pointing out this 
possibility. You are doing a great job in 
helping unoriented newbes to LC.

Regards

Ruediger

Hi Ruedger:

Each line in the list you received is an object whose script is currently
acting as a frontScript.  If you script something like "put the short name
of (line 1 of the frontScripts)" you will get the name of the button that
appears in the first line of the frontScripts list.

You say you deleted the button that contained your original frontScript.  If
this is really the case, it should be impossible for the script of that
button to be operating for two reasons: the script isn't around anymore, and
frontScripts are not persistent between launches.  You have to insert
frontScripts for them to be used.

Perhaps you had multiple buttons named "btTest" or you have another object
that contains the test script.  Checking which frontScripts are loaded will
show you.
