Re: Using "of me" fails to throw an error - is this expected?

Simon - thanks.
Richard - yep. But at least there's an easy workaround for that.

In general I'm all in for fixing things that should be bugs but aren't.

...sheesh... taken out of context, that sentence is completely wacky. :P

Re: Using "of me" fails to throw an error - is this expected?

Yes, but... in that case it's lax parsing that has been tightened up in a recent (9.5dp1) build. Here "of me" is benign but misleading: there may be other instances of "of me" in that script that correctly refer to the button object, and having a different "of me" line refer to the containing object...

Re: Using "of me" fails to throw an error - is this expected?

Yep - that's definitely buggy behavior and worthy of a bug report.
And it works that way in 9.5dp1 as well, so it's a good time to fix it.

Re: cascade dispatch commands?

OK - it turns out that dispatch commands *do* cascade properly... the problem is in the script editor itself. I didn't read the documentation carefully enough to realize the the "it" value returned from a dispatch command can have one of three (!) values: handled unhandled passed so the script edito...

Re: Refactoring Support for the LC Script Editor

The stack has been updated on github. The README.md file now lists one known issue that I'm still mulling over, but otherwise all the edge cases seem to work properly.

Re: new location for extensions?

LCMark- Doh! :roll: I was trying to avoid that in order to maintain backward compatibility, but it finally :shock: sank in that for earlier versions we wouldn't have extensions anyway, so I'm good with that.

Re: new location for extensions?

LCMark- thanks for the details. That clears things up. I nonetheless had to adjust some PowerTools code to account for the fact that in my local build I wasn't seeing the builtin extensions, but it's good to know that things will keep on working the way they have in release versions. bogs- given tha...
