I think this a old problem that is re-surfacing. Or else it is known….
9.6 dp1, in the message path different independent groups are not encapsulated.
-- has no script
-- is not a part of any group
put the short name of the target
put the short name of the target into tTarget
case(s) # various button names
# consolidate all UI actions that not part of a group
# to the stack script
# the card are several groups,
# each with its own mouse handlers
# I click on button "starWidget"
-- nothing happens…hmm, no errors either…
# start profiling scripts (new trick I found)
# click on button "starWidget"
# stop profiling scripts:
# Voila! the mouseup was trapped by one the other groups, as if they were in the message path.
Is there any way around this? Meanwhile I have to plug into every button explicit handlers. Tedious, make debugging painful…
