Why waste your time with that, when you can simply use the new "doItAll" and "makeUI" commands:
So much faster. No errors. I personally do not have time to make a button and put that script into it. I wish they would automate that as well.

Subject: Amazing new feature in LiveCode 6.7DP-1.4.14
Thanks to the engine refactoring project made possible by last year's
Kickstarter campaign the good folks at RunRev have finally been able to
implement a feature that I have wanted for years. You know how you're always
yelling at your computer to do what you mean, not what you actually coded? Well,
that's a thing of the past with the new guessProgrammerIntent stack property.
Try this in the stack script:
set the guessProgrammerIntent of me to true
Suddenly everything I really want my stack to do "just works!"
So I can do things like this:
sort field "mydata" in a way that makes sense
And Boom! the text in the field looks exactly like I want it to look, whatever
It even works with Strict Compilation Mode turn on! I think what happens is that
if you forget to declare a variable, LiveCode just assumes you meant to and
carries on as if you had declared it.
I have tried this with both the LTR and the new RTL versions of LiveCode. I have
yet tested it in Ambidextrous mode because I can't afford it right now.
Looking forward to hearing of other developers' successes with the new
