I had the same experience as Andrew. I would love to see a mousedown and mouseup message sent to this widget.

Am I missing something or does this need to be enabled first in LCB and then passed to LC?

I tried putting the widget in a group by itself (a trick I learned so I could put Effects on widgets) and applying the mouseDown/Up script to the group and it doesn't trigger. I add another object to that group and when I click on that other object the group script finally triggers, but not when clicking on the widget.

Currently I have the buttons scripted to act like a group of radio buttons (but they are standard buttons for easier skinning) and realize if they are the "active" button and toggle sorting by descending/ascending for that filter (the iconPresetName of a SVG widget is also toggled at this time to indicate the sort direction).
