Enabling a cancel button in middle of a scripting loop?

Post

Let me rephrase my question from Friday originally posted in http://forums.filemaker.com/posts/13c9a98787 but in a different inquiry.

I have a process that goes into a loop and oftentimes takes up to 5 - 10 seconds to complete, but there may be times when it takes longer or perhaps gets stuck in an endless loop.  While management finds it unacceptable to press Esc and then to press another button to reset process variables, is there any way that while in a scripting loop besides pressing Esc to even press like a "Cancel" button?
