Is there any way that a click on a button can pass the object name of that button to the script that the button runs?

It would be OK if this is done as a script param, or some other way. As long as I don't have to enter the object name again as a hard-coded script param.

Thanks!

Hmm, actually on my machine that isn't true, which is why I didn't suspect a tooltip. The variable updates as soon as the cursor moves over the object, long before the tooltip fires. I've verified this w/ the Data Viewer.

Good trick, although it still won't work for me because I can't make my buttons repeating fields. (And you're just going to have to trust me on that one, Daniele. It's not worth it to discuss the reasons.)

It's done in the tooltips setup. That's also the main disadvantage of this method: you must position the cursor above the button and wait until the tooltip updates, before clicking.

This isn't true on windows machines: the $variable updates instantly, even before the ToolTip shows itself
