Wow, I didn't expect so many responses and opinions on this small
matter! And I do agree (conditionally) with both.
I still find it odd that mouseEnter does nothing but mouseUp does in
the sense that a clickable opject under the disabled button is
clicked. As far as transparency is concerned, i use my own icons, so
in the disable state it doesn't look partially transparent, so it
still seems strange. especially in deBug mode when mouseEnter doesn't
call up the script and mouseUp brings up the script of the button
behind it. Since both buttons actually do similar things, it took a
while for me to even try deBug mode and figure this out.
But i guess what i am really saying is either behavior for a disabled
button is perfectly acceptable to me IF I KNOW ABOUT IT. Couldn't
this have been mentioned in the docs? I mean for a non-programmer
like me, when I first find something to use, like disable and enable,
I look in the dictionary to see exactly how to implement it and what
behaviour to expect. This reminds me of Dr. Strangelove's great line
to the Russian ambassador - ze whole point of zis doomsday machine is
lost - if you keep it a secret! Vy didn't you tell ze Vorld!

ps. another quickie - is there any way to do something like "repeat
for each marked card?" I kinda doubt it, but I thought I'd ask.
Just looking for something quicker than:
get the num of marked cds
repeat it times
go next marked cd
Also, is there a way to navigate between cards in a stack with a
preOpenCard handler and ignore preOpenCard?
