Kresten, you put this in the card script:

local tSelText

on mouseEnter
   if "button" is in the target then put theSelectedText into tSelText
end mouseEnter

function getSelText
   return tSelText
end getSelText

and in the relevant button scripts:

on mouseUp
   doSomethingWith getSelText()
end mouseUp
