Expander triangle

Use the me keyword within a handler to determine which object's script is executing.

Comments:

The me keyword is a reference to the object whose script contains the current handler.

If the currently executing handler is in the script of the object that received the original message, then me is the same as the object whose name is returned by the target function. For example, suppose a button script contains a mouseDown handler. The value of the target function within that mouseDown handler is the same as the name of me: the name of the button.

However, if the mouseDown handler is in the card's script instead of the button's, me is not the same as the object specified by the target. In this case, me is the card, but the target function returns the button's name, because the button is the object that first received the mouseDown message.

The me keyword can be used anywhere an object reference is used.
