The learning curve is the burning curve

Here's a simple "send" script that puts the current time into a field:

(I made this the script of a button, but you can change it to anything you

on mouseUp
  send updateClock to me in 10 milliseconds
end mouseUp

on updateClock
  put the long time into field 1
  send updateClock to me in 500 milliseconds
end updateClock

Does this help?
