Syntax: the ticks or ticks()
Create a button called "Ticks" and place the following handler into its script:
put the ticks into starticks
repeat until the mouse is up
put the ticks into endticks
&& totalticks/60 && "seconds" end mouseDown
Now click and hold down the mouse for a few seconds. When you release the mouse, a dialog appears telling you how long you held the mouse down.
