Additional Comments

Use the backScripts function to find out which scripts receive messages and function calls after the current object, the objects that own the current object, and any stacks in the stacksInUse.

Value:

The backScripts function returns a list of the long ID property of all objects that have been inserted into the back, one ID per line.

Comments:

A script inserted into the back with the insert script command receives messages after all objects in the message path, just before the application itself receives the message.

If more than one object is in the backScripts, their order in the message path is the same as their order in the list. For example, the first object in the backScripts receives messages before the second object. This order is the reverse of the order in which the objects were added with the insert script command.

When using the development environment, you can place as many objects as you want in the backScripts. When using a standalone application, the number of backScripts that can be active at once is specified by the scriptLimits function, and is currently ten.
