Changing Script In Standalone

What you did should work with the following caveats.

As Stephen said, the number of lines in your field cannot be more than 
10. You may only use 'set the script of' controls with scripts of ten 
lines or less (not including the handler part if I remember correctly.)

So, creating dynamic scripting in a standalone is very difficult, if not 
impossible. I believe there was a free version with these same script 
limits which was the original purpose for setting the limits. Of course 
it also prevents others from creating a competing authoring environment.

Also, the changes to the button script will not be saved.
