Exit script loops inappropriately

If a user indicates he/she wishes to exit the database, this script progresses appropriately to the 'Exit Application' step, but then loops back to the custom dialog a 2nd time! On the second pass through the script, the database closes.  Any idea how this could happen and how to avoid users having to respond twice about exiting a database?  I'm stumped. The same looping occurs if using the 'Close Window' or 'Close File' steps.

Any help for this poor misguided would-be database designer would be appreciated.

Here's the actual script:

 

# Script exits database

Show Custom Dialog ["Exit Database"; "Do you wish to exit database?"]

Set Variable [$UserInput; Value: Get(LastMessageChoice)]

If ($UserInput = 1)

  Exit Application

  // Close Window [Current Window]

  // Close File [Current File]

End If

Exist Script

Not sure about your "Loop"  since your script does not contain one.  Also be sure you don not have a script trigger assigned to your button which could cause a perceived loop. Also remember the buttons assignments  1,2,3  are opposite to the displayed buttons for the user.  See attached.  Hope this helps or leads you down the correct path.
