send mouseup to control

Hi All,

Reading LiveCode Dictionary about the target and send,
could not find an obvious way to get the name of a message
sender without putting first this name in another container
(a custom property, a field or a global variable).

Why do I need to know which control send a message
to another control?

Because the handler in the control executes different code
depending of which control sends it a mouseup handler.

For now, I am using a mouseup button parameter that
could be 1 or 2 or 3. If the control receive a mouseup with
parameter 1, then executes handler 1. If the mouseup is
received with a parameter 2 then control executes
handler 2.

Which other ways could I use to produce the same result?
