When using buttonSetAction for an ActiveText control from a script, you cannot use any variables local to the script in it.
/* This will print 'any bar' in the hint box,
 since _foo has no value according to buttonSetAction */

_foo = "foo";
buttonSetAction [100, "hint format[""%1 bar"", _foo];"];

This command does not overwride the buttonaction which was set via "action" in the hpp of the dialog

To use variables local to the defining script, a syntax like the one below needs to be used: _foo = "foo"; buttonSetAction [100, format["hint '%1 bar'", _foo]]; works! thanks to Kronzky for commenting this workaround in the VBS wiki
