You can use the sample scripts others have posted, but I would advise
against naming buttons with number names. This is always a bad idea. You
should always have at least one alpha character in an object name,
otherwise Rev can get confused about whether a script is asking for
"button 1" or a button *named* "1". Depending on your scripts, this can
cause all kinds of hair-pulling and cuss words.
Alternately, since your labels are already "yes" and "no", your script
could instead check the label and if it is "yes", put 1 into a variable,
and if it is "no" then put 0 into a variable. This bypasses the whole issue.
