"    This sends the message down the normal message path starting at the object
    containing the script. 

And here I've been thinking that a target was required for specificity, because of this in the dictionary:

"If no target is specified, the message is sent to ' me '. In the context of a behavior, this is typically the child that is executing rather than the behavior object itself."

Life just go easier.

    This is the part that I don't think I understand. Why do you need to turn
    the long id of the parent into a small array and dispatch to to any object
    along the path? From the search custom control I would just do the
    dispatch "behaviorSearchAndFilter"
You can then handle the message farther down in a
    group, card, or stack script. What is it you are trying to accomplish with
    the parent of the search custom control?
