on mouseDown
end mouseDown


Whenever you click in a Stacksmith window while the browse tool is active, a mouseDown message is sent to the clicked button, field, graphic or card, to indicate that the mouse button was pressed down.

In general, you do not want to react to a mouseDown, instead, you want to wait for the mouseUp message, to give the user the chance to change their mind and drag the mouse out of the clicked object (which will not send a mouseUp message).
